Pride rainbow eye make-up tutorial with Tiffany Hunt
Kit yourself out in colour for Pride
If you’re looking to fit all the colours of the rainbow onto one lid, look no further because this tutorial is made for you. We’ve teamed up with make-up artist Tiffany Hunt to create a look that’s as colourful as the spirit of Pride – perfect for celebrating virtually with your friends and family.
Prime for the party
Keep your look in place from AM to PM with a wash of Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer. Sweep across your lids, making sure to apply under the eyebrow for maximum colour base. Pat out your concealer for even coverage, and extend it out to achieve a fierce, full-on eyeshadow wing.
Load up your lids
Using the Morphe 35B Colour Burst Artistry Palette, take a light yellow shade and apply the colour towards the inner corner of your eye. Next, take the peachy-orange colour from the Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Palette Neon Orange palette and pat onto your crease – remember not to blend it up as high as the yellow. To keep the rainbow looking bright and bold, sweep on the hot pink shade from the Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Palette Neon Pink palette, applying the colour into your crease with a flat, angled brush. Psst! Patting your eyeshadow onto your lids will ensure the maximum pigment is left on your brush, giving you bolder-looking shades as you sweep them on.
Take the lighter pink shade from your Neon Pink palette and blend the very edges of the hot pink colour you’ve just applied. This will soften out any harsh lines, leaving your rainbow looking like a pot o’ gold! Then, take the purple pigment from the same Neon Pink palette and apply to the outer corner. Colour in your crease by using a dark purple shade from your Morphe palette, and define it further with a blend into the lighter purple. Finally, wing out your shadow to extend your rainbow look. Don’t worry about it being messy, you can always use a make-up wipe to neaten it up once you’ve finished applying all the colours.
Don’t forget about the blues, baby! Using a sky blue shade from your Morphe palette, sweep it next to the darker purple you’ve already applied. Then, taking a darker blue from the same palette, apply to the inner corner of your eye forming a crescent moon shape.
Cut your crease
Armed with your NYX Professional Makeup Born To Glow Radiant Concealer and a flat brush, carve out your crease by tapping your concealer gently onto you lid – you’ll get an even base that way. Don’t forget to fade your concealer into your shadow to create a flawless finish.
Using the same Huda Beauty Neon Palette you did before, apply the yellow shade to your inner crease using a flat brush. For your next step, take the shade ‘NATE’ from the Morphe X Jeffree Star Artistry Palette and pack it onto your outer crease, next to the purples and blues you applied earlier. Blend your turquoise colour into the yellow, and ta-dah, all the colours of the rainbow are now on your lids – perfection.
Using the shiny yellow shade in your Huda Beauty palette, apply to the outer eye, on and above the turquoise shade for a highlight hit that’s too good to miss. Amp up your sparkle even further with NYX Professional Makeup Metallic Glitter in shade Lumi Lite, applying NYX Professional Makeup Glitter Primer gently onto your lids beforehand to set the sparkles in place. Dab the glitter with your fingertip and shine bright!
Using the same bright blue from your Morphe Colour Burst Palette, apply under the lash line, pausing halfway to apply the same yellow from your lid in the other direction, completing the colour line-up. Add an inner corner highlight using the Doll Beauty Like A Diamond Highlighter bringing it under the eye a little to give a nice pop to the yellow. Applying highlighter is a great trick to bring a bit of light back into a look. Why not add some to the brow bone too if you’re feeling fancy?
Lash & line
Get prepped for a loada lash. Line your eyes with NYX Professional Makeup Epic Ink Eye Liner, using small strokes to build your eyeliner up (that way you’ll avoid a make-up disaster). Get look-defining lashes using Fenty Beauty Full Frontal Volume Mascara, remembering to fan out the outer corner for the puuurfect cat-eye effect. Adding lashings of mascara before applying your false ones will help them to stick to your natural lashes – who knew?
Queen of hearts
Outline the shape of a heart on one of your cheeks using a light shade in the NYX Professional Makeup Highlight & Contour Pro Palette and a small shadow brush. Add concealer into your shape to create an even base for applying rainbow hues. Using the same colours you used for your rainbow eye, pack the shadows in the same order remembering to blend the shades so it looks smooth and not blocky. Taking a darker shade from your contour palette, add depth to your heart shape, blending it out to give a feathered and more natural look.
Finally, add a touch of definition to your shape with NYX Professional Makeup’s White Liquid Eyeliner, placing it at the top, side and bottom of the heart.
Finish your look with a spritz of setting spray and a wash of your fave gloss. There you have it, Pride ready.
