Sugarpill Rainbow: The Tutorial

Hello lovlies, I'm back today with another photographic tutorial, a "Photo-rial" as I like to call it.
On one of my previous posts (A Review: Sugarpill Pressed Eye Shadows) I did a couple of looks to demonstrate what I was talking about, one of them was the Sugarpill Rainbow.


I got some requests to do a tutorial on that look so I did ^_^

 You may notice some changes to the look- aside from the Arabic eyeliner- These were on purpose, because in the original look I felt that the red was more present than the rest of the colours so I tried to change that.

Any way,,, Enough of my chit-chat, and lets start our tutorial:


Step 1: Prime the eyelids from the upper lash line all the way up to the brow bone, and underneath the bottom lashes as well.

Product Used: Urban Decay Primer Potion in *original* 


Step 2: Apply a white base to the inner corner on the upper and lower lash lines and blend with a clean finger.

Product Used: NYX Jumbo Pencil in *Milk*


Step 3: Place a matte bright yellow eyeshadow over the whole area where you applied the white base, and blend the edges softly.

Step 4: Place a matte bright orange eyeshadow on the area right next to the yellow on the top lid, for easier blending make sure the two colours overlap slightly. Blend the shared area completely for a smooth transaction of colours.

Step 5: Apply a matte red eyeshadow right next to the orange, again slightly overlapping and blend well in between the two colours.

Step 6: Place a vibrent matte purple at the upper part of the outer corner overlapping the red, and extend the colour stopping right after the crease line.

Step 7: with a fluffy brush dipped lightly in the matte red eyeshadow, blend the edges of the purple up and out towards the eyebrow. Also pull the colour through the crease towards the inner corner, you can go all the way or you can stop 2/3rd in like I did.

Step 8: With a pencil brush apply and smudge the same matte purple that was used before, to the bottom part of the outer corner, going almost half way in.

Step 9: Apply a bright matte blue to most of the purple on the lower lash line and blend until it becomes a blue-toned purple. Notice that I left the very tip of the outer corner with no added blue, also to keep the colour transaction as smooth as possible.

Step 10: Add some of the blue on its own to the center of the lower lash line. Blend with the previous colour.

Step 11: Apply a matte blue-toned green to the entire bare area between the blue and the yellow under the lower lash line, blend well with the colours on both sides.

Step 12: Fill in the eyebrow, and highlight the brow bone with a matte white eyeshadow.

Step 13: Line the eye with black eyeliner, use gel, liquid or pencil and line the upper, or both lash lines and don't forget the waterline as well.
Here I decided to give it a hint of an arabic look so I drew the liner kinda thick and on both lash lines.

Product Used: Inglot Gel Eyeliner in *#77*


Step 14: Re-apply some of the colours that were covered after the eyeliner step, Coat your top and bottom lashes with mascara until you're satisfied with the result.

Products Used: MAC Haute and Naughty Mascara



Step 15: This is optional, but you've gone this far so don't back down now ^_^
Apply some false lashes and re-apply mascara to push the real and false lashes together.

Product Used: No brand false lashes but they looked like these:

And thats the finished look, I hope you like it. Also I hope everything mentioned was clear and simple and that you'll try recreating this look some day ^_^
You can buy any of the colours I used today individually or you can do like me and get the palettes (Burning Heart & Sweet Heart) ^_^
