There’s a reason celebrities and social media stars are living for bright yellow eyeshadow. It looks amazing on all skin tones and adds a pop of sunny color to any and all makeup looks. Give lids a wash of color or create a rainbow eyeshadow look with a pop of yellow right in the crease. The possibilities are endless.
Not all yellow eyeshadow is the same, of course. Choose from light, creamy yellow hues, neon colors or deeper gold ones. You can play around with finishes, too. We love gold glitter, subtle yellow shimmer and all the matte shades we can possibly use. Find each in an allover gold palette (with a contrasting color added in, of course), a rainbow mini palette or single yellow shadows. Each is ultra-blendable and pigmented and easy to play around with and experiment with color.
Want the brightest yellow yet? Try applying concealer in your own skin tone before the eyeshadow. Or apply bright white cream shadow all over your lids. This way, the color in the pan will stay true on your eyes. This look is sure to turn heads so keep the rest of your makeup natural to allow the yellow to do all the talking.
