Make Up Tutorial : Rainbow Eyes

Its been a while since I posted a make up tutorial, just tied up with other things  it seems. Anyways now I am back, with one of my favourite eye looks. The Rainbow Eyes. Rainbows are the stuff of unicorns, magic, and miracles. The beauty of colours is pure isn’t it?? Bright colours are so in this season, hence this is a perfect look for a fun night out. You may have seen a lot of  pictures and tutorials of rainbow eyes all over the internet and I am quite sure the instant reaction to it must be, how pretty but how difficult it must be to create this look. In reality its quite opposite, rainbow eyes is quite simple to create, all you need are some pretty bright eye shadows. A few points to note before trying any make up look is to prime your eyes. This will prevent creasing throughout the day and also help the colors show up brighter. Next if you have dark circles or uneven skin tone around your eyes, always use a concealer, once this is done, you are ready to create beautiful rainbow eyes.

Step 1 – Apply a white eye shadow base all over your lid.This helps is bringing out the brightness in the colours more.
