Use a Base

If you’re going to do a colorful glossy eye, use a base first. For her rainbow look, @rowisingh used P.Louise Base Shade 0. You can watch her tutorial here. We recommend using a white shade primer like @rowisingh so your eyeshadow colors will pop! Only apply the primer where you need it. In other words, if you’re only going to put the eyeshadow on your eyelid, don’t apply the base on your brow bone and crease too. Primers tend to give a white cast, ashy appearance especially on medium and deep skintones.

Use Lip Gloss

Use lip gloss to finish off your look. If you’re doing a colorful glossy eye, use clear lip gloss. If you’re applying the gloss over your bare eyelids, you can use a clear or tinted lip gloss that’s close to your natural skin color.
