Well I think bold colorful looks are gorgeous, it is not something I would wear often… but that doesn’t stop me from rockin’ it out if I do.  This week for Tutorial Tuesday I wanted to do a Tropical Paradise Makeup Tutorial inspired by bright, bold, summery shades that look almost neon.  This makeup look is definitely easier to achieve than you would think and while it’s definitely not an every day look – it’s bright and cheerful for these warm summer days.  I hope you enjoy my Tropical Paradise Makeup Tutorial, rainbow eyeshadow featuring BA Star and BH Cosmetics.

Tropical Paradise Makeup Look


I don’t often plan my makeup looks – especially if I am going to do a tutorial on the look… so this particular makeup look was no exception.  I knew what makeup products I had intended to use for the eyes, so I decided when I created my first eye (before filming) that I would just throw the colors together and see how it turned out.  To be honest, I didn’t expect the colors to be as vibrant as they turned out – both from the BA Star Tropical Palette as well as the BH Eyes on the 60s Palette… because I haven’t really used more than a color or two from each palette.  To say I was impressed would be an understatement.

Check out my video tutorial on how I created this eye look by scrolling down and watching the embedded video below or click here to watch directly on YouTube.

Tropical Paradise Makeup Look

I am very happy with how this look came out and it reminded me how much I miss creating colorful and bold looks.  While these palettes are affordable, they both pack a huge punch in color… and it goes to show – you can certainly create a look using something cheaper than high end brands.  I had a friend ask me about my thoughts on the Urban Decay Electric Palette, which I do not own.  While I would love to be able to swatch that palette up and create some looks, I think these palettes I used to create the looks I did – well, they certainly give those higher end brands a little competition.  I’ll have my review for the BA Star Tropical Palette up soon and maybe just maybe… I’ll do one on the BH Cosmetics Eyes on the 60s palette too.  I hope you all enjoyed my makeup look for this week.  I’m loving how bold it is and how it turned out.

Happy Summer!
