Beauty Face of the Day

fotd: rainbow eyes

September 5, 2014

A couple of days ago, I found myself without any work meetings to attend (and therefore without reason to look even remotely professional) so I thought I’d do a rainbow eye with the much-underused “brights” section of my makeup drawer. Et voilà:


Isn’t that fun?


The trick to this look is to use a very light-coloured primer or a white base on your lids so that the colours really stick and stay as saturated as possible. 

Even though there’s quite a bit going on, it was surprisingly subtle when my eyes were all the way open. Teamed with a pale-neutral face and unfussy hair, I’ve got to admit it was a lot more wearable than I was expecting. I think this may just be the perfect day look for colour junkies!


I used:

Primer: Benefit Lemon Aid

Eyes, from inner to outer corners: Strike, Toxic, Coax, Betrayal, Madness and Prank, all from Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette (limited edition and unfortunately sold out on their site)

Lashes: Eyeko London Curvy Brush Mascara / Sephora Glitter Eyeliner + Mascara in Silver

Eyebrows: MAC Eye Shadow in Mystery

Skin: Bare Minerals Matte Foundation in Fair

Cheeks: the tinniest bit of Make Up Store Blush in Shimmer Dynasty

Lips: Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer mixed with Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
