As the sun shines brighter during the hot summer months, there’s another eyeshadow trend in sight. It all started on Instagram, the place where many makeup trends are set. Makeup gurus are painting their lids yellow, inspired by the summer sun. Unlike some of those bold colors trending on Instagram, yellow is a surprisingly flattering shade that could be worn in a variety of ways. From neutral to neon, everyone can find their yellow match. All shades of yellow including butter, mustard, and lemon are welcome! Flip through these images to get some major inspo on how to pull off this sunny shade.
Now that yellow has solidified itself as a color of summer 2020, it’s time to honor this trending shade with a monochromatic look that allows it to shine in full force. To replicate this look apply a highly pigmented matte yellow eyeshadow all over your lids. For a sexier look, finish off with sharp feline flicks.
Make your eyes pop with a glittery yellow cut crease makeup look. Use pastel yellow eyeshadow as a transition shade and add depth to your crease with a mustard yellow shade. For the lid, use a high-shine glitter or pigment to achieve a statement look.
Hop on the neon makeup trend with a bright yellow eyeshadow contrasted by a purple underliner. It’s a combo that will get all eyes on you!
Here is a softer, more glamorous color-blocking makeup look that everyone can pull off. Use a toned-down yellow shade and a yellow-gold shimmering pigment to achieve this high-glam look. Swap the nude lipstick for a statement electric purple lip.
Who’d say that yellow and pink look so fabulous together? If you are a fan of those vivid Instagram looks, replicate this gorgeous color combo.
The beauty of the yellow eyeshadow is that you can go as bold or as soft as you want. For a neutral, summery look, apply a pastel yellow eyeshadow all over the lids.
