Runway x Real Way: How to Wear Rainbow Eyes

From Michael Kors and Peter Som to the spring runways of Donna Karen and Dior, the biggest trend in eye makeup is somewhere over the rainbow
Technicolor eye makeup may seem intimidating, but take heed ladies! It’s actually a very wearable look for spring. Colorful lids not only brighten your entire complexion, they also open the eye—making it look bigger. Whether it’s colored mascara or emerald lined eyes, turning up the volume on your eye makeup routine is as simple as 1-2-3! Here’s our 3 favorite rainbow runway looks along with ideas on how to translate each look for your busy spring schedule:

1. Get inspired for festival season! Spring is jam-packed with the year’s hottest music festivals so why not get a little experimental with your festival look? Try lining your eyes with Urban Decay Woodstock Eyeshadow or Make Up Forever Eyeshadow in Lilac and then place a few rhinestones along your upper lash line using eyelash glue.
