♕ Rainbow Eyeliner ♕
{100 Days of Make Up ~ Day 75}

I've always wanted to try rainbow eyeliner - love how it looks, so bright and colorful - and I finally had the chance during the 100 Days of Make Up Challenge. It was really fun - but find all the right shades was quite challenging, to be honest XD I literally had to dig into my pigments stash, trying to find something I could use for red, yellow and orange. The other colours weren't such a big deal, I have tons of blues and greens and purple - but it the end I manage to put together the legendary rainbow eyeliner XD

I wanted to keep the focus on the rainbow liner, so I decided to stay basic on the rest - creating a soft look that could go along without overwhelming it. A pale but bright shade on the lid, a discreet matte shade on the crease - while on the lower lid I used all black shades to add some contrast and definition.

I applied, after the eyeprimer, a white base all over the lid. On that, I applied Atom by NABLA Cosmetics - that pale and bright shade I was talking about previously. On the inner corner I applied Angel from the Shade & Glow range by NABLA Cosmetics - basically an highlighter I just LOVE to use as eyeshadow. From the same range, I used Gotham (a sculpting powder, this time) on the crease, to add a sort of gentle definition to it. On the brow bone, as always, I applied Antique White.

Now it comes the fun and crazy part: the rainbow liner XD Small premise: all the following eyeshadows listed where used wet with Fix +.
I started from the inner corner with the red shade, and I used Grenadine - not the purest red ever, but he did the trick. I moved to the orange and I used two different eyeshadows: Lazy Days first, then a glittery pigment in a paler orange-y shade that blended wonderfully with the next shade - yellow. I don't own any proper yellow eyeshadow sadly, so I had to use a pale, champagne colour which worked quite fine. After that, I moved to the green - I used a loose eyeshadow in Jade Pearl by NYX, which I carefully blended with the yellow. Next colour: light blue; I used Dreamy Aquamarine by U-makeitup. For the blue/indigo I used two different eyeshadows by NABLA: Eternity and Baltic. Lastly, I used Cattleya as the violet, the final colour of the rainbow!

Final steps: I applied a black eyepencil on the waterline and lashline, then I applied a matte black shadow (Nocturne by NABLA) on the lower lid. I applied false lashes and mascara and I was done!

That's it for this look - quite a long process, I know, but 100% worth it! I looove how the rainbow liner looks *___* I wish I had more proper shades, especially for the red and yellow parts, but I think it works anyway!
