Look: Peek-a-Rainbow

I love colors! <3
You should've known that by now. Sadly, being a "working professional" I tend to go for neutrals, occasionally sneaking in the dark green or dark purple.
However, on Fridays, I'd opt for brighter colors. Usually I'd go for my purple liner but this time, I went Rainbow! This stunning idea was from Ronnie of Bows & Curtseys.

A few more shots after the jump!

I wanted the colors to be super bright so I whipped out my MANLY 80-Color Palette which I haven't used in the longest time. While there are 7 colors in a rainbow, I think I used at least 10 to get the colors nicely blended into on another. I skipped the glitter. I figured I'm already pushing it with wearing rainbow eyes to the office.

It wasn't too difficult to do and I like it a lot! Let me know if you'd like a tutorial for this.

Check out the rainbow I spotted while I was at the KL Bird Park. It was gone after 10 minutes of the shot.

Lyn: Thanks :D Remind me to wear this the next time we go out! Seriously, I didn't expect doing this look would be easy but it was! I used only 1 brush for the rainbow liner.

Rose: Will work on it! Thanks :)

EveryDay Makeup Blog: Thank you! Honestly, I found some of my smokey eyes look to take more effort than this one. Just got to have enough colors to work with.

cik chinta: Thanks :D I haven't filmed the tutorial (was just trying out the look for work) so I can't post it up yet but I'll do it as soon as I can.
