Rainbow Highlighter




Introduction: Rainbow Highlighter

About: I always describe myself in one word with: CRAFTY. I love all things DIY and arts & crafts. I also share some of my crafting knowledge on Youtube.

Make your own DIY Rainbow Highlighter inspired by Bitter Lace Beauty's trending Prism highlighter!

I was so bummed to see their Prism highlighter sold out so I took to crafting my own DIY version of this gorgeously vibrant rainbow highlighter. My rainbow prism highlighter palette is not as shimmery as the original rainbow highlighter palette, but for a DIY makeup dupe, I think it came out pretty great!

Step 1: Watch Video!

Step 2: Empty Palette

Take an old (unused) eyeshadow or highlighter palette and remove it from the container.

Use shimmery eyeshadows and smash each color at a time. You can also add in actual highlighter if your eyeshadows aren't shimmery enough.

Step 4: Add Rubbing Alcohol

Mix in rubbing alcohol until each color forms a paste

Step 5: Place Into Palette

Place each color, one at a time, into the cleaned out palette.

Step 6: Let Dry

After putting in each color, let it dry (it should only be about an hour)

Step 7: Apply!

Use a brush to apply it.
