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!
Yellow Eyeshadow Looks To Try Out This Summer
1. Smokey eye with florescent yellow liner
Starting off these 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.
There are endless options when it comes to a smokey eyeshadow look but, this one is quite original. Pair your favourite smokey eye with a bright neon highlighter! It definitely has the dramatic factor!
To get this look, use one of our recommended smokey eyeshadow palettes.
2. Yellow glitter eyeshadow with 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 tuner.
Pair black graphic liner with yellow shimmery eyeshadow for an even bolder effect! This look is relatively easy and great for beginners!
For the brilliant gold shade, use the Marc Jacobs Edgitorial Eye-Conic Multi Finish Eyeshadow Palette.
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!
Using a subtle orange and yellow, you can recreate this smokey look. Add some sparkle with gold on the crease and add some fun with a daisy on the outer corner! Use the Sigma Beauty Cor De Rosa Palette to recreate this look.
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. Simply yellow eyeshadow look
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. Sssssnakey yellow eyeshadow look
What’s your first thought when you think of yellow and green 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! To get this look, use the Urban Decay Wild Greens Eyeshadow Palette.
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 eyeshadow look
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 look
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 eyeshadow look
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. Summer sunset eyeshadow look
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! To get this look, use the Natasha Denona Zendo Palette.
14. Yellow and pink eyeshadow look
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!
