Fun Friday: Easy and Quick Rainbow Eyeliner Makeup Tutorial Step by Step

By Contributor: Mahima

So as per our promise that we’ll bring something really creative and colourful for the FUN FRIDAYS here is a Rainbow Eye makeup tutorial. RAINBOW eyeliner is a really really fun and colorful way to do your eyeliner, this is one of the hottest trends this year. This look might not be suitable for few occasions but if you are bold enough and love colors then my lady, this is the one for you. While choosing between a full on rainbow eyeshadow look or eye liner look, I went ahead with the eyeliner as it looks more classy, neat, easy, quick and wearable. Yes totally wearable for night outs or while shopping with your girlies. And if the boy asks you if you have just played Holi on your eyes then just ignore!

So take out all your colorful eye shadows and lets get started. 

easy rainbow eyeliner makeup tutorial step by step

How to do Rainbow Makeup:

STEP 1: Do your base makeup. Now for the eyes, take a white eyeliner and line your eyes (no need to be too neat) we are gonna use the white eyeliner as it will act as guideline for the eye shadows and will also make the colors appear SUPER BRIGHT. Product used- Lakme eyeconic white.

STEP 2: Now we’re gonna start with a bright red eye shadow, use a damp angled eyeliner brush to apply the eye shadow (damp brush will prevent fallouts and will make the line crisp).

STEP 4: Again with the damp brush take a bright orange and apply it just after the red eye shadow, make sure to blend the colors together using a patting motion at the end and the beginning of the previous and new color respectively.

STEP 4: Now follow up with a bright yellow, again with the damp brush to get the full intensity.

STEP 5: Further take a green eyeshadow and apply it just after the yellow eye shadow.

STEP 6: Now go on and apply a bright blue after the green eye shadow and merge the meeting point of green and blue together.

STEP 7: Now take a vibrant violet eye shadow and make the wing with it ,as shown in the picture.

 Eye shadows used- random costal scents palette. If you don’t have a Coastal Scents Palette then Inglot Color Play palette is a good option. Or Sleek Acid Palette.


STEP 8: Using a gel or liquid eyeliner line your eyes and apply a black/brown/grey kohl pencil on your upper and lower waterline to give dimension to the look. Product used: Maybelline gel liner.

STEP 9:  Yayaya my favorite step, I don’t know why but I get so excited for mascara. So yes go on and apply heaps of mascara and you can also apply false lashes (recommendation- Ardell no.113).

    • thankyou♡ and I’ve used maybelline falsies but if you ask me ill suggest you to go for L’Oréal million lashes (extra black) it gives the most dramatic lashes ever while the maybelline one can clump a bit but it becomes fine after a month of use cuz the formula becomes thick then and maybelline one is hard to take off like EXTREMELY hard.

  7. it’s such a pretty look and there are so many colours yet you made it so wearable and classy :) great post :)
