Pastel Rainbow Makeup Look and Tutorial

Hello Lovelies,

Here's a fun colorful look for you, featuring the Milani Impressionist eyeshadow palette. I know this isn't your everyday makeup look but who still look up tutorial for everyday makeup look anyways? I think the everyday look is a no brainer, can be achieved quite easily, and is the most overrated look of all time. Not that there is anything wrong with it, because the natural look is actually my favorite too :).

Anyways, the point is makeup is not just something you wear to perk up your face but it can also be a fun way to play with colors and get creative (at least for some people I guess).

I was thorn between cotton candy and rainbow when I was trying to decide what to call this look. These colors sure remind me of cotton candy but I think the overall look leans more toward rainbow, thus the name.

Product used:

  • UDPP Eden
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk
  • MAC Fluidline Midnight Blues
  • Cover Girl Liquilineblast (the green one, I don't remember what it's called)
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil Clash
  • Milani Shadow Eyez Royal Purple
  • Cargo Swimmables pencil (shimmery light blue)
  • Milani Impressionist Palette
  • ELF Pebble eyeshadow
  • Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel
  • Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear bronzer
  • Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls Rose Pearl blush
  • Wet N Wild Fergie V.I.Pink lipstick


  1. Prime lid with UDPP Eden
  2. Apply NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk over lids and blend. You can use your fingers or a dense brush.
  3. Apply the yellow pastel eyeshadow on the inner corner of eyes. Use a patting motion.
  4. Apply the pastel green eyeshadow in the middle of lids. Use a patting motion and gently blend it with the other color so that the transition looks smooth and seamless.
  5. Apply the pastel blue eyeshadow on the outer corner of lids. Use a patting motion and gently blend it with the other color so that the transition looks smooth and seamless.
  6. With a fluffier blush, apply the pastel purple on the crease.
  7. With the same brush, pick up a bit of the pastel pink and blend it with the purple eyeshadow to created a softer and blended look on the crease. 
  8. Apply the matte white eyeshadow on the brow bone
  9. Touch up on the lid colors if needed. 
  10. Line upper lash line with MAC Fluidline Midnight Blues but you can pick any color you want. 
  11. For the lower lash line, create a rainbow liner with a light green pencil (Cover Girl Liquidline Blast) for the inner lower, light blue for the middle (Urban Decay 24/7 Clash), and purple liner (Milani Shadow Eyez Royal Purple) for the outer. Smudge the same color eyeshadow over the liner to soften the line. 
  12. Line the waterline with a light blue pencil. I'm using Cargo Swimmables (it was limited edition).
  13. Fill brows with ELF Pebble eyeshadow and Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel.
  14. Add false lashes but you don't have to if you are blessed with long thick luscious lashes (unlike me). 
  15. Apply bronzer, blush, and lipstick.

  1. dear i think i saw you here:

    do they ask permission to put your photo there?

    1. wow snap, that's my face! No they actually didn't. :( shame on them. That really is not cool. Thanks for letting me know. I will get on touch with them and see what they say.

    2. I'm not sure if they deleted the picture or blocked it but after I left them a message, the link won't work.

    3. can you give me the link to the webpage and not the photo. I think they blocked me.

    4. hi dear, i just saw it from a facebook page, an online shop i guess.. i know it was you =( but why not ask for permission first?

    5. i get back to that link, but its not accessible now, maybe they removed the pictures

    6. i like this type of posts!!! step-buy-step tutorial of eyemakeup application thanks for this hun

    7. I was able to get it through the history, but thanks. I think they might have deleted it. That's just rude. Didn't ask permission and didn't say sorry...freaken people like this make me sick.

    8. They dont ask cause they don't care...sad but true.

  2. You look great! i love your cheerful eyes :D
    I hope you got that sorted out with them using your photo! I hate that!

    1. I think you should check out the site if your pictures ended up there too. The seller used many blogger's pictures.

  4. This is gorgeous!! <3 Love the pastel colors!

    1. They are definitely a lot of fun to wear :)

  5. You have no idea how much I love this!! I love pastels on the eyes. Sooo pretty x

    1. Pastels are indeed gorgeous on the eyes. I'm surprised I don't wear them often enough.

  6. Absolutely creative, bright and sooo fun! I've seen that palette around with other raved milani products, its nice to get quite a few basic bright mattes to play with. I think you did a great job with color coordination and placement! I can't wait to have some make up fun this weekend! I love the look!

    1. Thank you. Make up is fun, even at my age I'm still playing with it lol. Glad you enjoy the look.

  7. Love it - very Katy Perry!! :) I love your creation among the others Ive seen - probably because you rock it well and better than any of them! :) Good job!!

    1. Thanks hun. It takes some practice to get the technique right and then you develop your own style. People often say that I can wear any color and look great but I think anyone can rock any color and look great. Just not everyone understand how colors work with each other.

  8. This is so beautiful, I love how the colors show up pastel.. Amazing! I need to go find this palette now! :)

    1. Thanks. The best way to make this palette work is to pair it with a white base :)
