Gay Pride Rainbow Makeup look with Morgana Cryptoria

This weekend was Gay Pride Fest. I'm not gay myself, but I wanted to do a rainbow look anyway to show my support. :-)  I did a very blended rainbow rather than keeping the colours separated. I would have worn this to the fest if I went. Maybe next year!
The colours I used for this look are gold/yellow, pinky/orange, bright red, fuschia, grape/purple, blue, teal and green. That's not the basic primary colour rainbow, but I really wanted to colours to blend seamlessly.
I applied a lot of iridescent glitter to the outer eye socket area, but unfortunately the camera doesn't pick it up very well.


Eyes (all applied in this order):
Chafing Relief Powder-Gel (applied to upper lid, blending in gently with ring finger) 
Detrivore Eye Primer (applied all around the eyes, blending in gently with ring finger)
Morgana - Guinevere (applied to inner 1/4 of upper lid with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping) 
Morgana - Agincourt (applied to inner half of center eye area with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping) 
Morgana - Alchemy (applied to middle of upper lid with MAC 239 by patting then sweeping)
Morgana - Axe To Grind (applied to outer 1/4 of upper eye area with MAC 239 by patting/sweeping)
Morgana - Lapis Lazuli (applied to outer V with MAC 217 by patting/sweeping)
Morgana - Lady of the Lake (applied to outer half of lower lash line with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping)
Morgana - Joan de Arc (applied to inner half of lower lash line with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping)
elf - innocent (applied under brow with MAC 217 by patting/sweeping and blending downward)
Kryolan Aqua Color liner - black (applied wet with water, using MAC 210 on upper lash line winging outward)
NYX Jumbo Pencil in White (applied to water line with MAC 210)
