How Do You Apply a Rainbow Eyeshadow?

Rainbow eyeshadow makes a bold, colorful fashion statement. To try the look yourself, you need eyeshadow primer, eyeshadow brushes and eyeshadow in each color of the rainbow, which are red or pink, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. The process takes about ten minutes to complete and entails applying primer, applying colored shadows and blending the colors together.

  1. Apply eyeshadow primer

    Start with a nude or white eyeshadow base, which makes the eyeshadow color more visible. Apply the primer in an even application all over the eyelid and up to the brow bone.

  2. Apply color eyeshadows

    Starting from the inner corners of the eye, apply the red or pink color in a narrow strip. Apply the orange color right next to the red and yellow color and next to the orange. Repeat the process for the green, blue and purple colors. The purple shadow should be concentrated at the outer corner of your eye. Repeat the entire process for the other eye. You may need to re-apply each color multiple times to make the colors more intense.

  3. Blend colors

    Gently blend all the colors using a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Sweep the brush between each color to blend and create a softer look.
