BftE Tropical Rainbow

This was inspired partially by all the lovely rainbow looks that Cora from Vintage or Tacky has done recently, and partially by the gradient of color in my hair. I love all the colors! It’s not a ‘true’ rainbow, but it’s still a lovely medley of colors.

I tried OCC Lip Tar in Cha Cha with this look, but it didn’t look right, so I went for my beloved Morgana Cryptoria Troll Repellant.

To spice it up, I used Milani 3d Glitzy Gloss in Movie Star. I LOVE this color!

How to achieve the look:

  1. Prep the eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
  2. Line the upper lash line with Urban Decay 24/7 Junkie liner.
  3. Apply BftE Caribbean to the lid, blending it slightly into the crease.
  4. Brush BftE Lava Momma widely into the crease.
  5. Deepen the crease with BftE Love Potion #9 and apply it at the outer corner of the lid.
  6. With MAC Fix+, apply BftE Ying Yang to the inner v and the inner lower lash line.
  7. Apply BftE Spellbound to the outer lower lash line and the outer 1/3 of the lid, blending inward.
  8. With a fluffy brush, apply BftE Glistening to the browbone and blend it downwards.
  9. Use Too Faced 3 Way Liner along the upper and lower lashline, slightly thickening it at the outer upper lashline.
  10. Line the lower waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 Perversion liner.
  11. Use Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel in Espresso, curl your lashes, add mascara and you’re done!

      Great combination of colors you chose. I like the Milani lip color. The lip tar is a nice color, but I can see how you liked the Milani color better for this look.
