Yellow is a shade that screams happiness. It’s sunny and upbeat. As an eyeliner, it’s a hue that doesn’t need much else to go with it. It’s flawless on all skin tones and feels fresh all year round. Take inspiration from Amandla Stenberg, Zendaya, Margot Robbie and Vanessa Hudgens. It feels like all celebrities have tried the bright shade.
Of course, you don’t have to go neon with yellow liner. If you do, L.A. Girls’ rich pencil and NYX Professional Makeup’s liquid liner are stellar choices. If you prefer a more laid-back pastel color, we love Palladio’s pretty liner color. Wear yellow eyeliner alone across the lids or create a colorful eyeshadow look and add a pop of yellow to it. The results are seriously eye-catching every single time.
We also love yellow eyeliner used as graphic liner either in the crease as the floating eyeliner trend or really anywhere around the eye. It’s a festive way to play around with color that isn’t too much. It’s just enough. Of course, you can go totally extra and add a few other colors for a rainbow vibe that’s totally unique. You can’t go wrong.
