Yellow probably isn't a go to eye shadow color for most people, but when worn the right way it can look very pretty and it works with all eye colors! If this look still looks pretty intimidating, I promise you that it doesn't appear as intense in natural light as it does with the lights I use for my photos.
How To | Step by Step
I used two shades for my transition color in the crease, after applying the Elf Eyelid Primer. First, on the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush I applied the KOCO Shadow in Natural, a pale neutral yellow. For the bright yellow color, I used Grand Master Flash from the Sleek Supreme iDivine Palette on the IT Cosmetics Airbrush Shadow brush. To blend the colors together, I used a Sigma E40 brush.
To darken up the crease I applied a mustard brown shadow (it is an unnamed shadow from a MAC duo, but it is basically the same shade as MAC Uninterrupted) with the IT Cosmetics Airbrush Crease Brush. Using a Coastal Scents Shader brush, I also applied the mustard brown all over my lids.
To add a bit of shimmer to the lids, I applied a light amount of the Urban Decay Shadow in Maui Wowie. On it's own this is a very cool toned taupe, but it works nicely over the mustard brown to add a bit of dimension.
On the lower lashline, I applied the mustard brown right below my waterline with a flat liner brush. I also added the yellow from the Sleek palette below the brown, with a Sigma E47. I did make the lower lashline pretty intense in this look, to make sure the yellow translated in the pictures, but I probably wouldn't make the yellow as intense to wear during the day.
I used the Sephora ColorProof Liner in Matte Brown to create a thin line along my lids. To complete the look, I applied the CK One Mascara and the Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara.
