How to Make a Rainbow + Pot of Gold Costume With Your Boo
One of our favorite couples costume duos is back at it again! This time, they’re modeling a look that Kelly Bryden and I teamed up to create — a rainbow and pot of gold couples costume! It’s one thing to bang out themed favorites like Suicide Squad movie characters, but it’s another to create a costume based on a concept that could literally take you anywhere, so we were stoked to unleash our creativity. From that suit and a pot of gold to the rainbow-cloud makeup (one of my favorite looks yet), here’s the scoop on how to recreate these outfits for you and your lovah!

Follow thisl to get your base makeup for this look. Go heavier on the bronzer and highlighter.
If you’re doing this makeup on yourself, then follow the samefor your base makeup, but if it’s for a male, then all you need is a light touch of foundation as a base on which you can apply the rainbow and clouds.
How to Do Makeup for Rainbow
Step 1: Rainbow Eyes: This is actually really simple to recreate; all you need is the rainbow colors in the Ben Nye Cream Color Line ($7) and either a small paintbrush or makeup brush to apply it with. I started off with the red and then worked my way out to the purple. Each new color slightly overlaps the first one for a blended look.
Step 2: Clouds on Clouds: This is my favorite part of the look! Use the same Ben Nye Color Cream in white to make clouds. I applied them using a fluffy shadow brush and worked my way around the rainbow and his eyes.
Finishing Touches: Set Makeup: Put a layer of translucent powder over the makeup by gently stippling over so you don’t mess up your design. I love the Ben Nye Face Powder ($7) for this step. If you’re doing this on yourself, then you can add mascara or lashes to complete the look.
Of course, one of B+C’s mascot pups had to jump into the mix!
If you really want to keep this look DIY, then make this amazing suit!
Follow instructions on the tie-dye box and mix in squirt bottles. Wet your white clothes and lay out flat on a drop cloth. Squirt dye in even lines across the clothing to create rainbow stripes. Let dry and then wash alone in the washing machine.
