How to apply rainbow eyeshadow

  1. Start by moisturizing then placing a small amount of foundation make up and powder on the eyelids to achieve a good even base. The powder will also stop the eye shadow from fading.
  2. Add a yellow right in the inner spot of the eyelid, and fade it out near the middle of the lid.
  3. Put the gold green on top of where the yellow has begun to fade.
  4. Add the sky blue on top of where the gold green has begun to fade.
  5. Apply the purple on top of where the sky blue has begun to fade and slightly further along the lid.
  6. Add the pink at the end and reduce to almost the outer corner of your lid.
  7. After you have applied the eye shadow, use your brush to blend each color together. Even blending makes for the perfect look.
  8. Use  eyeliner and/or mascara to complete the look.

How to choose makeup brushes

  1. Select suitable brush for the work at hand.
    Use a natural bristle hair brush for the application of powdery makeup products, for example powder, blush and eyeshadow.
    Use a synthetic bristle brush for wet makeup application, like creams, lipstick and foundation.
  2. Avoid makeup brushes with blunt edges. Brushes with soft, dome-shaped heads work the best for applying make-up.
    Buy a concealer brush. This is an important tip of the trade since you are able to use it to ensure accurate application of the makeup product precisely where you want it.
  3. Test for durability just before you buy makeup brushes. Natural fiber brushes will quickly lose the bristles with use. You can do a test in order to prevent this by ensuring that when you buy the brush, it is strong well attached bristles. This means doing the tug test – pull softly on the brush in the store. If there are any lose hairs, consider buying a different brand.
  4. Make sure your makeup brushes are clean and free of dust. Store away from bathroom products and preferably in dust-proof locations containers or in a bathroom cabinet. Gently wipe off makeup build-up regularly from your brushes. You can use liquid for synthetic brushes or simply wipe with a tissue natural bristle brushes.
