Rainbow Highlighter DIY!!! πŸ’•πŸ¦„πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ’•

Hi ladies! I’m back today to share with you a DIY tutorial on how to make your own unicorn/rainbow/mermaid highlighter! YES! A full tutorial on how to do it! If you are a beauty product fanatic like me- I’m sure you have all seen the new prism highlighter craze. The original producer of this highlighter is by an Etsy shop called Bitter Lace Beauty, but there were down sides to ordering it from the original maker…

1. It costs $22.00 

2. Being a small Etsy shop- It’s on preorder from 9-10 months. Since everyone has realized they need this in their life at the same time lol

3. Once my order is ready in almost a year, shipping makes me wait even longer for it to arrive

So with those three key points bothering me, I decided it can’t be that hard to DIY. So I went ahead and DIY’d it! The project was a MAJOR success, and I urge any and all of you to do it at home. Ecspecially if you just aren’t patient enough to wait for someone else to make it and send it to you! Let’s get right into it. First we’ll talk about the items you will need to complete this job…
What you’ll need: 
1. Cheap brightly colored eyeshadows- primarily in light pink, light orange, bright yellow, light green, light blue and purple. I used all L.A. Colors shadows ($1.00 each)


2. Rubbing Alcohol 90%-100% will work just fine.


3. An old compact you can empty the rest of the product out of. Face powder, blush any medium sized compact will do (clean, rinse and dry this out afterward. It needs to be clean & dry)


4. A small jar to mix the shadow, shimmer and alcohol in


5. A highlighter/shimmer medium to mix in with your crushed eyeshadows. I used “gossamer” by Bare Minerals. Works absolutely great for this! This is what really makes this highlighter- a highlighter. 


6. Paper towels for blotting

7. Butter Knife & Mixing Tool

STEP ONE: So what you are going to do is start off with light pink- then do light orange, then bright yellow, then light green, then blue, then purple last. This will give you the ideal “rainbow prism” of colors. Start by shaking less than a tsp. of gossamer into the bottom of your mixing jar, then empty out your pink shadow pan into the mixing jar as well. Crush it up as finely as you can and get it thoroughly blended with the shimmer. If the color is a bit too dark for your liking- you can add some white shadow to the powders you are mixing. Blend and crush together thoroughly, adding the gossamer as needed. Test swatch this loose powder on your arm when it’s all mixed up, because this will show you just how shimmery and how opaque it will be once its dried out in it’s new compact. πŸ™‚

STEP TWO: Now that you have the shade and sparkle desired, add a little rubbing alcohol to the powder mixture. Start off slow- you can always add more but you can’t take away once it’s in there. You are looking to make a metallic paste, but not too thin or runny. It needs to have some ‘hold’ to it in order to pat it down into the pan with all the other colors. But if it’s too thick- you wont be able to spread out a nice flat surface in your compact. It will look gritty and space up when you try to spread it out. If you see you have it too runny- add a little more shadow, or gossamer to the mixture to thicken it up a tad. If its too thick but almost there, add a few drops of alcohol until you get it where you want it. Be patient and don’t have a heavy hand with this step! #crucial

STEP THREE: Once you have you first color ready to be placed into the compact, pat it down in there on the left hand edge. Then each other color you mix up will go in a nice stripe next to that one- so on and so forth. Make sure each row isn’t took thick or you will run out of space before you make it to the last color, purple. Now that it’s patted down in there, it doesn’t look too flat. It looks bumpy rightnow, but not to worry! Just take the flat edged tip of a butter knife and swipe it against the top of the color lightly to give it an even, smooth face. Finally, you are going to take your paper towel and lightly press down onto your color you have just placed into your compact. You can push the product into corners or edges, and any gaps that show can be fixed with this step using your finger and paper towel. Just press lightly! πŸ™‚ 

Repeat for each color and then leave to dry completely for about 4 -6 hours. Once you can no longer smell rubbing alcohol, it’s ready to use! How exciting right? So forget preorders, wait times, and shipping delays! DIY! Check out my final product- 



I am so glad I decided to give this a shot- I felt a little unsure in the beginning, but man did it all work out just fine! πŸ˜‰ What do you think? Do you like my custom made prism highlighter? 🌈 Leave comments & thoughts for me! Love ya ❀️

Halloween Space Mermaid Makeup! <3

Here i used all of my new ColourPop single shadows to achieve a crazy bright look! I just started going with the flow and pickingΒ weird colors, it reminded me something in between like an alien girl and a mermaid, and with that my space mermaid was born ❀ These ColourPop eyeshadows are SO pigmented, SO vibrant, SO attention grabbing and glittery! Every makeup artist should stock UP on these shadow singles, no joke πŸ™‚

Let me show you what colors were used:

Β IMG_0079

Fizz (green), Ibiza (turquoise), Coconut (darker blue) and Fantasy (purple/pink)

I applied my MALLY base shadow to my eyelids, which is very similar to MAC paint pot in “Soft Ochre.” Then took Fizz and applied it all over my LID. Then i took Fantasy and applied it in my OUTER V and drug it across my lash line, then i used Ibiza to LINE my eyes: taking a eyeliner brush, wetting it, and then making a slight paste out of the color, applied the winged Β shape i wanted then went it with the same color but dry and applied it over to the moist color to set it and make it more vibrant. Finally i used Coconut to line my eyebrows and then filled them in with Ibiza.

*** I have turned several of these colors into bold liners by using the process above, these shadows are versatile and can be used as eyeliner as well ***

SCALES:

Used a fishnet stocking Β to hold against my cheekbones tightly, then i took Ibiza and Fantasy and packed it in around the holes leaving a scale fish type look.

Okay, so i did a shimmery blue & green eyeshadow look with a pink lip and then with a lavender lip just to see which i preferred. (I liked the pink better with my skin) Then i decided that i wanted some sort of design on my face/neck.. So, i used a simple piece of white printer paper to cut out some scales & gill stencils with a razor blade πŸ™‚ Crazy simple and crazy easy if you need something quick. Then i just held the stencils on the spots i wanted to transfer them onto, (lotionΒ up area first it makes it a looot easier) and used a makeup brush with the same color eyeshadows on it to fill it all in. Then peel it off and VIOLA! πŸ˜‰

Here is everything i used:

  • Lancome High Def Mascara
  • MALLY base shadow
  • L.A. Colors eyeshadow palette “waterworld”
  • Sally girl single eyeshadow “Aqua”
  • SMASHBOX Halo Glow Color Boosting Powder (bronzer)

Try out this look for yourself, all you need is some gorgeous bright eyeshadows, a razor blade and some printer paper! πŸ˜€ You can create the exact stencil/shape you have in mind too, which is the best part.
