Subtle Rainbow Eye Shadow Tutorial

 I love color.

According to "the experts" people with certain eye colors should only wear certain eyeshadow colors.
And while this is mostly true... some people/eye colors can pull off colors better than others,
I still dont like to always follow the rules.
For example, I dont think I KNOW I dont really look that great in blue eye shadow.
However sometimes I just get the urge to wear blue! I like the color and I think its fun.
I like to have fun with makeup. And again, I LOVE color.

Because of that, I sometimes get the urge to go all out with my makeup.
Nothing clownish or anything, just something fun.
Like using more than one color, or bright colors like pink.
I know most people dont feel comfortable playing with and wearing eye shadows arent natural looking. For me, though, makeup is the one area that I always felt confident in.

I would love to encourage others to step out of their makeup comfort zones and be color confident.
I do hope to write up more posts about what colors look best on what eyes.
If anyone would like that, please let me know!
But for now, I wanted to start off with something a unique and FUN.
Something that might even seem scary to some!
How about rainbow eyes??

Ok, calm down... not full on rainbow here.
Just a subtle rainbow, with mostly neutrals to help ease you in. ;)
What do you think??
Ok then, to start  you can use any shadows from your own collection.
You will need a brown and a gold color for your neutrals
and then you can choose what ever 3 rainbow colors you like together. 

These are the colors I used from my NYX Pearl collection.
Nude Pearl & Mocha Pearl (I mixed those two for a lighter brown)
Golden Yellow Pearl, Purple Pearl, Ocean Blue Pearl,
and then I mixed Jade Pearl & Lime Pearl for a more subtle green.

Now just follow the easy pictures//instructions:

I took several photos of my entire face so you could really get a look see of how it looks in whole.
So many times I see a beautiful eyeshadow'd eye and wonder if the look actually looks as pretty as whole on the face as it does as just the eye. Know what I mean??
Or is that just me?
Anywho... so this is what it looks like as a whole.
Not too scary, right??
I feel like the mostly neutral top lid evens out the little bit of extra color on the bottom lashes.

Do you think you could try a fun look like this?
Are you outgoing with your makeup or more of a natural girl?
 Love to hear from you!
And if you try this look, please share some photos with me,
either in a blog post or on my fb page wall! ♥

Much Love & Hugs,
