Full Rainbow Palette Brows!

If you don’t want to be limited to just a couple of colours but you haven’t got brows substantial enough to support every colour of the rainbow in one, why not spread your rainbow palette across both brows? This funky eyebrow style creates a truly rainbow inspired look that spreads across your whole forehead, because why not?!




By now you might have an idea of what kind of rainbow eyebrows you fancy, but the next big question is where can you wear them? Whilst some of us might be brave enough to sport these babies every day, many people will only get their rainbow on for a special occasion! Here are some eyebrow style ideas that are specially designed to fit the dress-code…



Any of these colourful eyebrows work well for a spooky Halloween look, whether you’re feeling like a red devil or an eery ombré witch! By using gradient blending techniques and some dark, halloween-worthy colours, you can coordinate any fancy dress!


New Year’s Eve/Nights Out

If you’re looking for a stand-out style for NYE or any other party or night out, try combining neon Manic Panic Glow Glitter™ or body paints to create a glow-in-the-dark UV eyebrow. You can even incorporate glitter eyebrows and UV neon eyebrows to create the ultimate party brows!


Summer/Festival Fashion

If you’re headed to any music festivals or gigs this summer, this is a golden rainbow opportunity to flaunt your on-fleek eyebrows! Think of all the #selfie opportunities you’re going to have throughout the summer months, so make sure your eyebrows are as beautiful as the rest of you!



So now you’ve decided what style of rainbow eyebrows you’re going for, and when, it’s time to make sure you’ve got everything you need to work that look. So to create rainbrows, we recommend using:

  • Moisturiser/Primer for the base
  • Angular Eyebrow Brush
  • Soft Blending Brush
  • Pigmented Eyeshadows/Body Paint/Hair Gel/Liners
  • Cosmetic Glitter (make sure it’s skin safe!)
  • Cotton Buds

Let’s Get It On!

Now you have your chosen style, occasion (seriously though, as if you need one!) and all the bits and bobs you could possibly need, bet you’re wondering how to turn those boring old slugs into some fabulous sparkly unicorn eyebrows?!

Follow these steps to find out how to colour your eyebrows at home:

  1. First of all, wipe off any brow makeup you may already be working, it’s best to start with a completely clean canvas
  2. Then, use a brush to carefully apply some moisturiser or primer to the eyebrow
  3. Grab your angular brush and apply the coloured eyeshadow or dust to the brow. Be careful not to overload your brush as you may end up with shadow sprinkling all over your face, which actually sounds pretty cool anyway right…?
  4. Using the softer brush, blend any adjoining colours so that they blend into each other seamlessly
  5. You can now set the look using a little eyebrow wax. If you want to apply cosmetic glitter to your brows, use the same soft brush and dab a little glitter on whilst the wax is still fresh and sticky for best results

Alternatively, if you would prefer to use liner or body paint to create your rainbrow eyebrows, you can:

  1. First of all, wipe off any brow makeup you may already be working, it’s best to start with a completely clean canvas
  2. Draw on whichever colour eyeliners/body paints you choose along the natural brow line

Whichever way you choose to create those Unicorn eyebrows, the best way to perfect them is to practice, so get brow-ing before festival season is here!
