EOTD: It's Raining Rainbows!

Since the weather has been a bit dreary lately I decided what better time than now for one last fun, summer eye tutorial!?!? So for those of you looking to create something a bit more complicated and colorful than the everyday, keep scrolling! And of course, you don't have to use the same colors and products I used in this tutorial, so I encourage you to use whatever products you have on hand!

What I used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Purple- Lid shade from Revlon's Colorstay Eyeshadow Quad in Seductive
Blue- Urban Decay Crystal
Green- Accentuating green shade from Revlon's Colorstay Quad in Inspired
Yellow- LORAC Negligee and Urban Decay Midnight Cowgirl
Orange- E.L.F. Blush from the Blushing and Bronzing Duo
Pink- Too Faced To Go III
Highlight- Highlight shade from Revlon's Colorstay Quad in Inspired
Brows- Urban Decay Naked
Eyeliner- Essence Gel Eyeliner in Midnight In Paris
Mascara- NYX La Amoureax

Other Products used:
Revlon Photoready Primer
Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam in Porcelain Ivory
Revlon Photoready Eye Primer and Brightener
theBalm TimeBalm Concealer in Lighter Than Light
NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in Sunny
Essence Silky Touch Blush in Adorable

Start with a clean, prepped and primed eye. I also recommend starting without any concealer of face makeup under the eyes as sometimes the colors have a bit of fall-out and no one wants their perfect concealer job messed up with sparkly green and orange pigments!

Add a shimmery pale purple color to your inner corner, I choose to use the lid color from the Revlon Colorstay Quad in Seductive.

  Then add a shimmery pale blue like Crystal from the Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV right alongside the purple, basically creating a vertical stripe of blue just beside the inner-corner color.

Add in a stripe of pale green next to the blue like the one in the Revlon Colorstay Quad in Inspired.

Next to the green stripe, place a stripe of bright yellow eyeshadow. Since I naturally don't have a bright yellow eyeshadow on hand, I first placed LORAC's Negligee Eyeshadow in a stripe next to the green and then went over it with Urban Decay's Midnight Cowgirl to add more yellow tones and sparkle.

After the yellow has been laid down, add in a short stripe of orange or peach shadow near the outer corner. Since I was improvising during this look I ended up using a touch of blush from the e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blushing and Bronzing Duo.

On the very outer-corner, add a bright, yet pale pink eyeshadow like the one I found in the Too Faced To Go III.

To top it all off I used the highlight shade from Revlon's Colorstay Quad in Inspired on my brow bone with a fluffy blending brush to help lightly blend out any harsh lines, filled in my brows with Urban Decay Naked, used Essence gel eyeliner in Midnight In Paris along the upper lashline, and used two coats of NYX La Amoureax Mascara.

The Final Look

Would you dare to wear rainbow eyeshadow?
