Artsy Rainbow Cut-Crease Makeup Pictorial feat. Urban Decay Cosmetics Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette

Artsy Rainbow Cut-Crease Makeup

Believe it or not, rainbow makeup looks are one of my favorites to do! Something about throwing a bunch of bright colors on my eyes make me so happy and even though, these types of looks are probably not wearable outside of the house, they’re so fun to do and are undoubtedly stunning to look at, in my opinion!

I’ve had my Urban Decay Cosmetics Full Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette for a few months now and finally took it out to play! This palette is one of the most beautiful palettes that I own in my collection and I’m so thrilled that I purchased it. If you love bold colors like I do, then this palette is definitely a must-have! I highly recommend getting it before it sells out for good since this is a limited edition — it’s currently on sale for only $32.00 at Sephora.Com!

I can’t believe that I used only four brushes to create this look! I usually switch back and forth between a bunch of different brushes, but wanted to challenge myself and use as little brushes as possible — mission accomplished!

On to the tutorial!

Step 1: Apply an eyeshadow primer all over the eye area to help intensify and increase the eyeshadows’ longevity, then take a small angled brush with the shade Calavera (bright yellow) and trace the color above the natural crease line, placing the yellow on the inner lid.

Step 2: Using the same brush (clean it off first, of course), pick up the shade Seize (shimmery coral) and apply it next to the yellow color.

Step 3: Finish tracing out the new crease line by applying the shade Alchemy (deep fuchsia) onto the outer corner and wing out the end.

Step 4: Take a small rounded blending brush and blend out the colors for a smooth finish; to make blending a bit easier, dip the brush in each eyeshadow color and gently sweep them upwards until all three colors are nicely fused together.

Step 5: Now on to my favorite part of the look, the “cutting of the crease” — with a small flat synthetic brush and a little bit of concealer, carefully trace the concealer underneath the crease line to create a sharp and clean line.

Step 6: Use a small flat brush to pat a setting powder on top of the concealer to set the concealer in place.

Step 7: Going back to the small angled brush, use it to apply the shade Sketch (metallic purple) onto the outer corner of the lid, making sure to leave a negative space in between the lid and crease colors; wing out the end to parallel with the wing on top.

Step 8: Switching over to the small flat brush, pat the shade Paranoia (shimmery cool pink) onto the center of the lid.

Step 9: Pat the shade Goldmine (metallic yellow gold) onto the inner lid.

Step 10: Clean up the upper edge of the lid colors and bottom of the outer corner with the small flat brush and concealer.

Step 11: Use the angled brush to apply the shades Blindsided (bright teal blue) and Hatter (vibrant green) onto the lower lash line; again, wing out the blue on the outer corner.

Step 12: Sweep the shade Mean (shimmery lime green) underneath the lower lash line.

Step 13: Pat a white iridescent glitter onto the brow bone and inner corner for a pop of sparkle.

Step 14: Tightline the upper water line and lash line with a black kohl eyeliner pencil.

Step 15: Line the upper lash line with a black liquid eyeliner, then apply a coat of mascara to the upper and lower lashes.

Step 16: Apply on a pair of fluffy and voluminous false eyelashes to complete the colorful eye look.

Voilà!
