Makeup trends may come and go with the seasons, but some of them have really stood out. A minimal base, glossy finish, subtle blush, bold eyes--I think it's safe to say that au naturale makeup is the front runner this year! Due to Miss 'Rona, sadly, we have to mask most of our face and only our eyes are now allowed to do all the talking. And what better way to let all eyes be on you your eyes, than wearing a shade that's definitely brighter than our future?
Think bright, think yellow! Not-so-sadly, the hot weather will bid us adieu in a couple of weeks, but don't you worry, you can definitely rock this summer-approved colour as a major end-of-summer trend!
Yellow eyeshadow looks so stunning on the eyes. This bright shade perfectly captures the essence of summer that we truly missed enjoying this year. Thankfully, makeup is all about making your own rules and we say sport it on your eyes, all the way through winter!
Here's how you can choose the perfect shade of summer, in just a few simple steps.
Unlike other subtle shades like nudes or pastels, yellow loves making a statement! Thankfully, there is an array of yellow shades to choose from, so you can find the perfect shade for you.
How to choose the perfect shade?
You have three options:
- Look out for a yellow-colour themed eyeshadow palette or one that has yellow in it so that you can mix it well with other stunning shades.
- Shop for single-shadows so that you won't feel bad if you do not like the way it looks on you.
- Mix and match. Apply it over different shadows or blend it with a similar shade for an ombre effect.
Another way is to collect a handful of yellow eyeshadow singles and shuffle between them. Don't just go for pressed powders--liquid, melted, eye crayons--the possibilities are endless!
If you don't want to colour your entire lids with it, either apply it n the inner corner of your eyes or wet a fine brush and use it as an eyeliner. Just don't forget to set it with a setting spray!
One of the BEST ways to know if a particular product is worth spending your hard-earned money on is via YouTube tutorials and reading reviews. Just a quick search on Google will give you so many results. Personal preferences, where to buy a particular product from, how to make a particular eyeshadow work, is it even pigmented, affordable dupes, better options to try out--you can know so much through the giant pandora box that Google is!
Personally, I can't tell you how many times I've had my eyes opened via YouTube reviews and learned tips and tricks by reading the comments below.
We hope that we managed to colour your mind yellow! And if you are ready to board the train to Yellow Paradise, check out these yellow eyeshadow looks that prove that it is indeed the perfect shade for everyone.
Or if you're lazy like me, cover your entire lids with a matte yellow eyeshadow!
Are you ready to walk down the yellow (brick) road à la Dorthy in The Wizard Of Oz? We bet you are!
