The brightest colour in the spectrum is now the hottest eyeshadow colour, thanks to everyone’s desire for sunset eyes. But many still shy away from yellow in fear of getting it wrong and looking a little too eccentric. Here are three things to keep in mind if you want to pull it off with effortless style.
Lemon, mustard, desert sand, honey, butter and more – yellow comes in a wide variety of shades to suit any skin tone. Just remember that the darker your skin, the brighter your chosen yellow should be to really make it pop! For dark girls looking for ultimate impact, try NYX Professional Makeup Hot Singles Eyeshadow in STFU Yellow for a dramatic look that’s sure to turn heads.
There are endless options to go glossy, shimmery or fully matted. The hottest finish for eyes this season though are 90s-inspired gels that create a wet eyeshadow look. To pull off yellow eye makeup with a glossy finish, use NYX Professional Makeup Vivid Brights Crème Colour in Light Show – Metallic Gold for a golden-yellow colour and creamy consistency that easily slides onto your eyelids.
Another way to rock the yellow eyelids trend is by using an eyeliner pencil to line both lash lines. Alternatively, a liquid liner like Urban Decay Razor Sharp Longwear Liquid Eyeliner in Goldrush is perfect for creating wild geometric shapes and the always-popular winged eye look. Using a single eyeshadow colour over the whole lid is not only easier, it can also be dripping with drama if you go for one of these sunshine-bright shades.
Yellow is a colour that projects optimism and happiness. So, on those grey days when you could use a little cheering up, break out these spectacular shades for an instant mood (and style) lift!
