How to Wear Yellow Eyeshadow

Yellow eyeshadow has popped up on quite a few occasions in the past year. Margot Robbie, Zendaya and Rita Ora all wore sunny eye looks on red carpets and they all looked incredible. If it’s a color you’ve never considered wearing,  think again! Here are a few ways to wear yellow on your eyes all year round.

Shadow plus eye gloss

Go yellow and sheeny with a yellow shadow and a gloss over top. Take a deep yellow shadow over the lid, it would look amazing if it were a little metallic or shimmery. Lay down a couple of layers to create an opaque color from lash line to crease. Take an eye gloss, a lip gloss or even vaseline on to your finger. Dap the gloss over the shadow, concentrating on the mobile lid. It WILL crease, but that’s the beauty of it. It’s kinda carefree, messy and rustic.

Lemon liner

If you have a yellow pencil or liquid liner, draw a thick line from the inner to the outer corners, getting fatter and slightly winged at the outer corner. If you don’t have a yellow liner, (the most likely scenario!), you can use a yellow shadow. Mix the shadow with a setting spray or mixing medium and use a thin liner brush to paint on the line. Pair with plenty of mascara and a pop of gold shimmer in the inner corner.

Matte yellow and gold

Tone down the yellow by adding gold shimmer over the top. Lay down an opaque matte shadow over the entire lid, blending at the edges with a tiny bit of bronze or taupe shadow. Take a shimmery gold shadow and pack it into the inner third portion of the lid. Blend it out so it fades from bold gold to a subtle wash out to the outer corners of the eyes. You’ll end up with a look which shines as you move, and fuses the bold modernity of yellow with the classic prettiness of shimmery gold.

Yellow inner corners

Lay down a skin-matching shade over the lid to cancel out any redness or veins on the lids. Warm the crease with your go-to brown or taupe. Now pack your yellow shadow onto a short, dense brush and press it onto the inner corner, extending slightly onto the inner part of the lid. Keep layering the color until you have a bold, deep, opaque spot of color peeking out from your inner corners.

Yellow crease

And finally, use your yellow shadow as your crease color. Take the yellow shadow on a fluffy brush and blend it through the crease and up toward the brow. Keep going until you have the depth of color you desire. You could even add a little ombre effect with a deeper orange and even a tiny tip of red at the inner or outer corners, blending the colors together seamlessly. Keep the mobile lid either neutral or shimmery champagne…and lots of black mascara as always.

I hope you give these lemony, lovely looks a try! Have a play and find a way that suits you best.
