The color yellow represents sunshine, sunflowers and happiness. With brighter and happier days ahead of us, there’s no better way to celebrate it than with some bright eyeshadow! And by that, I mean, with yellow eyeshadow!
Yellow eyeshadow is not only for the daring, far from it actually. There are loads of different ways to wear yellow eyeshadow, and even if you’re a neutral lover who doesn’t usually wear colourful eyeshadow, there’s an eyeshadow look for you too!
From bright yellows to subtle yellows and easy eyeshadow looks, to complex ones, we’ve covered it all! We’ve put together the best yellow eyeshadow looks that will bring some brightness to your day!
1. Smokey eye with neon yellow liner
Start off this yellow eyeshadow looks with this gorgeous smokey eye! A smokey eye is one of those looks that is here to stay. It’s dramatic and pretty too.
To get this look, use one of our recommended smokey eyeshadow palettes.
2. Glitter and graphic liner
Graphic liner is having a moment in the spotlight, yep, it’s quite the trend right now. I haven’t yet decided how I feel about the whole graphic liner look yet, but it’s definitely a head-turner.
Pair black graphic liner with yellow shimmery eyeshadow for an even bolder effect! This look is relatively easy and great for beginners!
3. Bring on summer
Is it even a summer blog post without it including flowers?! Although, to be fair, seeing eyeshadow like this in the winter would for sure take away some of the winter blues!
4. White and gold graphic liner
You got it, it’s another graphic liner look! This one sure has the originality factor and the results are well worth the effort!
There will be an effort to recreate this look, because, to get it right you need a very steady hand!
5. Biscotti eyeshadow
I did say there’s a look for everyone! If bold and bright eyeshadow isn’t your thing, then this simple, one-shade eyeshadow look may do the trick for you. Sometimes less is more and this yellow eyeshadow look is proof of that!
The shade boho in the Sigma Beauty Untamed Eyeshadow Palette is perfect for recreating this look.
6. Feeling ssssnakey
What’s your first thought when you think of yellow and green eyeshadow together? For me, it’s a snake! If you’re in a sly mood, this is the ideal look for you! All jokes aside, this eyeshadow look is captivating!
7. Neon graphic liner
I did tell you that graphic liner looks are currently trending, but it’s kinda obvious by the amount of them in this eyeshadow look.
If graphic liner looks are your thing, then this is a super easy one. Plain and simple, yet highly effective!
8. Tropical mango eyes
Inspired by tropical mangos, this look is sweet! Tropical mangos are some of the sweetest mangos, so much so my kids always say they taste like candy! And my kids are candy experts!
This eyeshadow look is gorgeous for the summer, it has warmth oozing from it. There is so much detail here, from the highlight shade in the inner corner to the liner on the lash line! It’s a look for all occasions and it’s relatively easy to recreate!
9. Encanto butterfly
Encanto is all the rage at the moment, so naturally, we had to include a look inspired by it! it’s a more advanced eyeshadow look, but perfect for those trying to improve their skills.
10. Smokey yellow eyeshadow look
Pairing the lightest and darkest colours creates this insanely contrasting, yet dazzling look.
Again, there is so much detail in this look, from the neon eyeliner that is sitting on top of the black one, to the gold shimmer under the lower lashes!
11. Fiery hot eyeshadow look
Feeling the heat? Create an eyeshadow look to match it! The trick with this look is to not blend the shades 100%. It gives the look an originality factor and it gives it a more fiery feel!
12. Daisy chain
This may be more of a spring eyeshadow look due to the daisies which come out in spring. However, the colours depict summer too, so we couldn’t resist it!
Fairly easy to do, the eyeshadow is one shade and for the daisies, I recommend using an eyeliner pen.
13. Sunset vibes
Is there anything more stunning than a summer sunset by the beach? It’s one of the most perfect ways to end the day! Bring the look home with this sunset-inspired eyeshadow look!
14. Yellow and pink
This eyeshadow look is ideal for those who want a bit of yellow, but not too much! Pair it with pink eyeshadow or really any color of your choice. Apply the yellow eyeshadow above the crease line. It’s subtle, yet still original!
If you thought yellow eyeshadow was only for the daring, I hope I’ve managed to convince you otherwise!
Anyone can pull off yellow eyeshadow, it’s all about adapting it to your individual taste. I hope you’ve found a yellow eyeshadow look that you love!
