I’ve never worn a yellow eye shadow before so this was going to be an interesting experience. Let me tell you!
I have a yellow base skin tone so I had to be careful in applying this colour without looking like I was sick. Now the secret in using a yellow colour is making sure you compliment the yellow with a colour that is going to be striking on other features of your face.
Porcelain to fair skin – mustard tones.
Medium to tan skin – bronzy, gold tones.
Dark skin – bright egg yoke tones.
In this particular look I went for a bright bold almost magenta lipstick. This is going to warm up my skin tone and warm it up in more of a pinkish cooler tone instead of bringing out more of my yellow tone, if I ended up using a bronzy, brownish lipstick. With this particular lip colour I mixed two colours. First I added the darkest shade (mellow cosmetics New York matte lipstick) then I waited a few seconds for that to dry and then added the Lime Crime Marshmallow colour on top, this lightened up the shade and gave it a unique light magenta shade.
For the base I went with a mattifying foundation to powder finish as I wanted to have a flawless base so my eyes, cheeks and lip colour popped the most. For a cheek colour I use my mac powder blush (a deep rosy colour) that deepened the texture of my face and brought out that yellow canary colour.
