Wearable Yellow Eyeshadow Look

Hi Makeup Geeks! Yellow can be one of the most intimidating eyeshadow shades to work with. In this tutorial, I’ll show you a few simple ways to incorporate color into your looks while still staying day time appropriate. When working with any bright shade, the key is to pick one specific location to apply the color. For this look, I toned it down by adding a slight shimmer to the lid, keeping the bright color in my crease and blending everything out. I also added winged liner to add definition and contrast. So grab your favorite yellows and let’s get going on this look. :-)
