Unlike your blues, pinks and greens, yellow is a colour that still needs to be discovered and experimented with, especially when it comes to makeup. Well, thanks to Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, we are slowly getting there! Not everyone can pull off bright yellow lids with as much panache, however, yellow eye makeup can add some serious drama to your look. So, if you’re looking for subtle ways to sport yellow eye makeup, then this is just for you!
We’ve got you covered with 5 simple ways to wear yellow on your eyes without looking OTT!
Yellow all over
If you want to go subtle with yellow eye makeup, then double-lining your upper lash line and the inner corner of your lower lash line can do wonders in making your look pop without going OTT. Finish off with double coats of mascara to make your eyes look more awake.
Yellow with a hint of black
If you don’t have the confidence to pull off bright yellow lids, then it’s best to add a hint of black to your eye makeup. Let yellow rule the look and go over with black eyeshadow towards the outer corner of your eyes, giving it a smokey effect. Finish off your look with a stroke of winged eyeliner.
Ditch the regular black mascara for a bright, poppy yellow colour and you won’t need any other product. Yellow lashes alone have the power to take your eye makeup game to a whole new level. Just add some blush and a muted lip to complete the look.
Yellow inner corner
Yellow eyeshadow looking too OTT? Well, here’s a trick to use yellow on your eyes without making it look too loud. All you need to do is highlight the inner corner of your eyes with yellow, draw a thick winged liner and boost the volume of your lashes.
Yellow shimmer on the crease
A swipe of yellow shimmer on your crease is all you need to amp up your eye makeup game. Once you’re done drawing wings evenly on both the sides, grab a shiny, sparkly liquid eyeliner in a shade of yellow and draw equal wings on your crease line. Make sure the liner on your crease line goes a little beyond your black eyeliner. You can use the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line Eye Liner - Liquid Gold as it has a super pigmented formula and lasts for hours.
