Hey yíall, hereís a new rainbow look for you! I have rearranged the colors and intensified the look. I wear this all the time because I wear a visor and glasses at work. I feel like my eyes disappear so I wear dramatic make up. I love all the compliments I get and this look gets the most. (Actually, I went to work after writing this tutorial and got more compliments than ever!  Cheesy )
I will try to find/take new pics to add to this tutorial of the missing steps. I have no idea what happened! Boooo!

Start by applying your foundation and priming your eyes. I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Itís kind of expensive for the initial investment but youíll get more than your moneyís worth out of this. The colors would not be this intense without it.

Using a brush, apply yellow to the inner third of the top half of your lid to the crease. Fade a little bit of the yellow in to the middle of the top half of the lid to help blend the orange when you apply it.

Apply the orange from the middle to the outer third of your eye. Bring it out past the corner of your eye a little bit and about ľ inch from your brow. Youíll be blending this later so donít be afraid that you look like a clown at first. Wink

Use an intense pink in your crease and blend it upwards into the orange about halfway up to your brow. I use a couple of colors in the crease in this tutorial. Itís all about layering hereÖ

I forgot to take a picture, but itís not that hard here. Put a nice bright green on the inner third of your lid. Iíve used a lot of blues on this look, but Iíve gotten the most compliments using this bright aqua for my blue. Apply the blue to the middle of your lid. Carefully blend the green onto the blue with one or two strokes. Really be careful here because you can over blend them and not be able to see the different colors. You can see here that I winged out the blue a litte into the crease so I have a guideline for the next two colors.
(I can't find the pic!!!)

On the outer third of your eye use a medium shade of purple. Bring the color out a little to make the look a little smoky.

I use a bluey shade of purple to blend the pink and purple together a little bit in my crease. You donít have to do this, but I like that it makes the look even more vampy.
(where is this pic too?)

On the outer V and half of your lower lid use a dark purple and on the inner half bring back that lime green.

Eyeliner, brows and mascara complete your eyes. I usually use a natural or light pink on my lips with this look because itís so bright already. Accessorize and enjoy the compliments!  Smiley

List of products used:
Primer- Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Yellow Ė MAC Bright Future
Orange- Hot Topic Orange
Pink- HiP Duo Brazen
Green- NYX (the specific name is all worn off, I use it a lot)
Blue- Sally Girl aqua
Purple- Sally Girl purple
Blue Purple- HiP Duo Reckless
Dark Purple- HiP Duo Reckless
Liner- Cover Girl water proof black (I sweat a lot at work and the primer + water proof  liner = less smudging)
Mascara- Cover Girl Lash Blast black

I just saw this look and Iím going to have to try this!!! Oh yeah!!

I think I have almost all these colors... to bad this would be a far cry from my usual mascara and go, though... must plan a date night or something Smiley
