How to Create Rainbow Eyeliner on Your Eyes?

Step 1: Gather your supplies: to create your rainbow eyeliner look, you'll need an eyeliner brush, white eyeliner, colorful eyeshadows or eyeliners, an eyeshadow base, mascara, and a pair of false lashes.

Step 2: Start by applying your eyeshadow on your eyeshadows and filling in your eyebrows. Make sure to smooth out eyeshadow primer with your finger, creating a nice base for a future look.

Step 3: Apply the white eyeliner and draw a thick line along your upper lash line. This will serve as the base for your rainbow eyeliner and make the color pop.

Step 4: Now it is time to add the colors. Starting from the inner corner of your eye, use your colored eyeliners to draw a thin line on top of the white base. Repeat this process with each color, creating a rainbow effect.

Step 5: Once you've applied all the colors, use a clean eyeliner brush to blend the lines together. This will create a more seamless, blended look. If needed, touch up any areas where the colors may have bled or smudged. Use concealer to clean up small imperfections.

Step 6: Finish your rainbow eyeliner look with a coat of mascara on your lashes. Add a pair of falsies if you like wearing them. Plus, you can add some white eyeliner on the lower waterline. This will help your eyes pop and complete the look.
