We’ve got you covered with five fun ways to wear yellow on your eyes… just in time for the wedding and party season! 

Smokey with a hint of yellow

Here’s the perfect way to upgrade your regular smokey eyes. Add a pop of yellow to your look by creating yellow winged eyeliner and applying yellow eyeshadow on the inner corners. This little trick will amp up your eye makeup like no other. Add definition with the help of long, dramatic falsies, and you’re good to slay!

Shadow play

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja gives us all the inspiration to pull off yellow eyeshadow with aplomb! If you’ve moved past blues and greens, it’s time to experiment with another solid shade—yes, you guessed it right! We’re talking about yellow. Take a highly pigmented yellow eyeshadow and go over with it all over your lids, right from the lash line to your brow bone.

Yellow accent

If you’re a beginner who wants to experiment with yellow eye makeup, then this look can be a great start! First, go ahead and create black winged eyeliner like you normally would. Then, take a yellow eye pencil and just line on the outer corner of your eyes, just below the black wing. Finish off with generous coats of mascara. This little trick can enhance your eye makeup without looking OTT.

Mix and match

Yellow and blue is a match made in heaven, and this look is proof! Apt for a party look, start by lining your lower lash line with an electric blue eye pencil such as the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal - Royal Blue and then go with yellow shadow on the inner corners. This mix of bright colours will make your eye makeup stand out and how!

Fun with floating

Here’s another quirky way to use yellow in your eye makeup. To recreate this look, you’ll need a blue eye pencil and yellow eyeshadow in shimmer. Start by sweeping some yellow shadow on the upper lids, touching your brow bone as well as on your lower lids for extra effect. Then draw a floating eyeliner with the blue pencil and voila!
