Snapchat Rainbow Filter | Be Silly On Your Thanksgiving Party
Easy, Simple Steps To Recreate The Snapchat Rainbow Filter That Is Sure to Bring Laughs
“Why should I wear a Snapchat rainbow filter on a Thanksgiving dinner?” you may ask. I know you’re thinking it’s such a silly suggestion, but that’s the point! Thanksgiving is an amazing time to gather around a table with the people you love and who love you, and what better way to add more happiness than taking yourself less seriously. Are you game enough to try it? Then here’s a makeup tutorial I did for Makeup Tutorials together with my friend.
Products you’ll need for the Snapchat Rainbow Filter:
- gold eyeshadow
- white eyeliner pencil (we used this one by Kleancolor)
- light brown eyeshadow
- eyelash curler
- black mascara
- false eyelashes
- lash glue
- bright pink blush
- highlighter (we used this eyeshadow by Kleancolor)
- light pink lipstick (we used Kleancolor in Barely Pink)
- face paint (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and white)
- thin paintbrush
Before you do the steps below, always remember one thing: apply foundation to make sure your makeup sticks well to your skin. Also, just like a canvas, you want to make it clean before you do some painting, so using a foundation and a concealer can create a smoother look.
Step 1. Start with the eyes.
If you’ve been paying attention to my makeup tutorials, you will realize I always like to begin with the eyes. It’s because it’s the hardest to work with. You can’t apply too much or too little there, and it’s more difficult to “remove your errors,” so to speak, such as your eyeshadows and eyeliners (it happened to me a couple of times before, and let me tell you, I look like I’ve been beaten black and blue the next day).
Done? Then we’re ready to recreate the Snapchat rainbow filter!
Okay, first step: apply gold eyeshadows on your upper eyelids. Don’t go overboard with the shade! We don’t want to look like a clown.
Then apply your Kleancolor retractable waterproof white eyeliner ($1.44/each), covering your entire lower eyelid, the edges or corners of the eyes, and just a wee bit for the upper eyelid. Don’t know how to apply your eyeliner? Here’s a tutorial for you!
To make your eye makeup for the Snapchat rainbow filter appear more seamless, get your gold eyeshadow and dab some below your white eyeliner.
Step 2. Work on the lashes.
I love big “popping” eyes! Well, I am just crazy with eye makeup – that’s the truth. That’s why I combine any eye makeup with false eyelashes and great mascara. Attaching eyelash extensions can be tricky, especially for beginners, so you may want to go through this tutorial first.
And because we don’t like those fake lashes to look really fake, I’ve got a few pointers for you. First, use extensions with colors that match your natural ones. Second, make use of tweezers! Further, when applying your mascara, use it for both your fake and natural ones. Don’t forget to utilize your lash curlers for both.
Step 3. Proceed with the face.
Get your light pink blush and apply the shade on your cheeks and bridge of the nose. Blend well. To make it appear as if your face is glowing – or as if you’ve just snapped a photo! – dab a highlighter at the tip of your nose. I use Kleancolor American Eyecon Wet/Dry Baked Eyeshadow – Calla ($1).
Then work on your lips by using Kleancolor in Barely Pink ($5.97). I super love this lippy because it’s not only cheap, it’s creamy and has a truly beautiful, clean, and smooth pink shade. It stays on the lips for a long time too!
Step 4. Paint a rainbow!
And now we’ve come to the best part of our Snapchat rainbow filter tutorial. We’re going to create a really, really gorgeous rainbow! Keep your makeup somewhere for a while and grab your face paint. To recreate the look, we’re going to need a few choice colors, which are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple (or you can make your own color combination – again, be creative!). For example, since I adore pink, I can use different shades of the color or tones similar to it.
Paint a line of each color from your bottom lip to your collarbone, beginning with red. Use your thin paintbrush.
Step 5. Make yourself sparkle.
We’re so close to completing our Snapchat rainbow filter look! Because it’s Thanksgiving, which is basically a festivity for a lot of us, we can add some sparkles on our face! To do this, use your white face paint and make some stars and dots to give the illusion of sparkle. You can then put colored dots below each of your rainbow band.
Tada! Don’t you look amazing and cute? To see how all these steps work out, check out this Makeuptutorial video:
