This Multicolored Eye Makeup Tutorial Is Your Excuse to Buy More Face GemsMay 26, 2022
Apply Four Shades of Eyeshadow
Start by dividing your eyelid space into four different sections to begin the gradient look. Here, Wu used the NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencils in Macaroon, Donut, Cupcake and Eggplant. She then went in with the NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Brights Shadow Palette and applied corresponding shades to each of the four sections: a light blue, lavender, purple and pink.
Blend Out the Edges
Using a clean, dome-shaped brush, Wu blended the edges of each color slightly to eliminate any harsh lines and to create the gradient look. She notes that you should avoid blending all the colors together because that will end up muddying the finished look.
Bring the Colors to the Lower Lash Line
Next, Wu brought the blue-purple gradient down to the lower lash line with a pointed brush. This will add a layer of dimension to the look and provide a nice backdrop for the eye gems.
Add Your Rhinestones
Wu added a collection of small and large eye gems to the look for a starry finish. Tip: You can apply rhinestones with nail glue. Have fun and get creative with placement, size and spacing to complete the look.
