Need a new and colorful eye makeup look? Give rainbow eyeshadow a shot!
Rainbow eye makeup isn’t something you see every day. It’s a unique and colorful look that’s sure to turn a few heads and brighten up any face. It also sends a fun loving vibe, making it great for parties and days you need a little lift.
There are lots of different choices when applying your rainbow eye makeup. You can go subtle, with just a hint of color, or go bold, with slashes of vibrant color. Subtle rainbow eye makeup can be applied to just the eyelid below the crease or used to line the eyes, for instance. Bolder rainbow eye makeup, on the other hand is usually applied with a slightly heavier hand, oftentimes all around the eyes. This look can also be enhanced with colored eyeliners and mascaras.
