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!
