This is a soft look anyone can carry off. Swipe a sheer banana yellow eyeshadow across eyes. Complement the pastel eyeshadow with a pink lip stain.
Look closely, that's not eyeshadow. It's layered liquid eyeliner. Just above the crease, apply an amber-colored liquid liner followed by a lemon yellow right underneath. Leave off mascara and finish with a neutral lip gloss.
Just a Swipe
Less can be plenty when it comes to yellow eye makeup. Rather than sweeping shadow across the entire lid, apply a brush stroke beginning in the inner part of the eye across the crease. Don't worry about it being "perfect" or even. It should have a painterly finish.
Wake up with a warm yellow eyeshadow applied across the lower lash lines. Black mascara and bold brows finish the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed effect. For lips, just a dab of pink-tinged balm will suffice.
No need for mascara when an electric yellow eyeshadow has been applied from the lash lines up to brows. Don't overcook the look with complicated contouring and a bold lip color. A rosy lip gloss is the way to go.
Glitter Is Golden
Going out? Swap a smoky eye for a sprinkle of yellow glitter on the eyes. Black perimeter eyeliner adds toughness, while a matte rosebud pink lip color ups the prettiness.
Red eyeshadow used to be considered tricky to pull off, just like yellow. Demonstrate how beautiful both shades can be by wearing them together. Sweep a rust eyeshadow around the eyes and use a vivid yellow to highlight the inner corners.
Study in Contrasts
Golden yellows glisten as much as any metallic. Enhance eyes with amber glitter and a few rhinestones on the inner corners. Temper the shimmer with a deep eggplant lipstick for an edgy finish.
A bit of bright color in the right places can have a dramatic effect. Just see this pigmented yellow highlight on the inner corners of the eyes and the orange on the lower lash lines.
Just a Wash
Majorly intimidated by yellow? Look for easy-to-wear sheer formulas. Yellow newbies can start off with a wash of pineapple yellow in the inner corners of the eyes that fades out along the crease.
Refreshing yellow and white eyeshadows are the polar opposite of a sultry smoky eye. Play up the shape of eyes by drawing the eyeshadows around the perimeter with the white focused on the lids and the yellow on the lower lash lines. Leave the rest of the face bare.
Shades of Yellow
Remember that there are countless shades of yellow to choose from, including lemon, mustard, flax and goldenrod. A saffron liquid liner applied around the perimeter of the eye looks rich when paired with matte skin and a neutral lip.
No need to go for a full face of yellow eyeshadow before you're ready. Begin by incorporating yellow as an accent shade. A soft gray smoky eye with a wash of shimmering mustard yellow in the crease is unexpected, but very wearable.
Not for Wallflowers
They'll see you coming with bright yellow eyeshadow and red lipstick. It's a strong look, but it's not clownish. Accent the eyes with false lashes so they don't get lost against all the color.
Coordinating clothes with makeup isn't dated, it's gorgeous. Wear muted yellow tones, then accent the look with a hint of matching eyeshadow. A neutral pink lip color looks beautiful with yellow eye makeup.
Wondering what to wear with yellow eyeshadow? Remember color theory from art class and try an analogous color scheme. (In other words, shades next to each other on the color wheel.) For example, a rich honey yellow eyeshadow looks beautiful with orange and red. For a fiery look, extend the color from eyes down temples and cheeks.
Showcase a vibrant yellow by experimenting with its placement and shape. Apply a cream or liquid marigold eyeshadow on the very center of eyes. Don't make the shape perfect, it's supposed to be organic.
Highlight and Accent
No need to cover the entire eye area with bright colors. Just a dab in the inner corners and a sweep across the lower lash lines will do. See this stunning yellow and bright blue combination.
Blue makeup was all over the Fall 2018 runways, Ultra Violet is the official Pantone color of 2018, we are obsessed with all shades of pink, and we’re never going to give up classic beige and brown. But there’s a new #trending makeup color that has shown up for spring and it’s the brightest and most unexpected shade of them all. Yes, we’re talking about yellow.
Poor yellow is easily the most ignored color in our eyeshadow palettes — and that’s if it’s featured at all. Even experimental beauty lovers tend to turn a blind eye to the cheerful shade, focusing instead on greens, oranges and even reds. Suddenly, all that has changed. Maybe it’s the sunnier weather or the fact that we’re bored with brown, what we do know is that yellow eye makeup has been blowing up on Instagram. What’s more, Maybelline is about to drop the Lemonade Craze Eyeshadow Palette and Kylie Jenner released a Stormi-inspired Kylie Cosmetics Weather collection featuring a shocking yellow eyeshadow in her Eye of the Storm Kyshadow Palette. Coincidence? We think not.
Yellow is here and it’s time to embrace it. We know it’s bright, but that’s the appeal. Whether you go for a sunny lemon hue or something more mellow, like mustard, gold or flax, a shot of yellow can wake up the face faster than a radiant concealer and a really good red lipstick. Ready to embrace the sunshine? Take a cue from the runways and try one of these chic ways to wear yellow eye makeup.
