Yellow Eyeshadow Look


If you remember a year ago I did a post called One Of These Nights, where I recreated Red Velvet's makeup from their One of These Nights music video. The makeup focused heavily on a true pink gradient lips and bright yellow eyeshadow.

It seemed like a very outlandish makeup look to wear very casually. However, after watching this video by Lisa Eldrige, I have come to realize this is actually quite wearable. 

I was able to do the vivid eye makeup on my older sister, who has an eye shape similar to mine. I thought I would share the products I used and how I did the look.


First, I did a quick primer of concealer and powder, which I would not do anymore because the lasting power is quite strained with that combination.

The concealer was the Glossier Stretch Concealer in Dark. 

Second, I applied MAC Saddle as a crease color. 

I then jumped into the yellow, my sister has dry eyelids, so using MAC Chrome Yellow did emphasize her dry patches and it is a bit hard to work with. However, I was able to make it work. 

I felt that the transition was too bold, so I went into my MAC Nutcracker Sweet Warm Eye Compact and used Lady Finger, which is a more muted yellow, to blend the two colors together.

I finished with a mixture of the Elf Lengthening Mascara and Urban Decay Perversion Mascara.

Then I patted some more Chrome Yellow on top to intensify the color and spritz with the Elf Makeup Mist and Set.

Would you wear this look?
