Color Crush: Yellow Eye Makeup

Yellow is one of those colors that instantly make me happy…let’s just call it a color crush. Maybe it’s because I associate it with sunshine, summer time, and sitting outside enjoying a good lemon drop (mmmm….lemon drop). So with that as an inspiration, I wanted to create a yellow eye makeup look that is completely wearable if you are into wearing yellow on your eyes.

Yellow eye makeup is not something I would do in large doses. If you want to incorporate yellow as a color on your eyes, I would recommend keeping everything else on your face a bit more subtle. Your face should not emit rays of sunshine; that is not a good look. Keep it subtle…keep it classy.
