One of the simplest and most gorgeous ways to wear the technicolour eye trend is by putting on a shimmer eyeshadow all over your lids. Pick a shade like gold or silver and start from the inner corner of the eyes. Extend it up to the outer corner, right below the end of your brow, to create this stunning look.
02. Metallic green

The metallic green shade is quite versatile and goes with a lot of outfits, including black. You can either stick to just one shade or switch up the look by adding a little bit of golden hue at the inner and outer corner of your eyes.
03. Two-toned lids

Instead of opting for one single shade all over your lids, you can also go for a half and half look. Blend the first shade from the inner corner to the centre of the lid, then pick a contrasting shade and apply it from the centre to the outer corner to get this look.
04. Blue graphic eyeshadow look

Graphic eyes can completely transform your look and are quite simple to create. Draw an outline using a liquid eyeliner in a bright blue shade, then fill it in with a bright blue eyeshadow shade to get this technicolour lids look.

If you prefer matte eyeshadow shades over shimmer, here’s a technicolour eyeshadow look that’s perfect for you. Using two similar or contrasting shades, create this two-toned look on top and bottom lids. Don’t forget to add a few coats of mascara.
