A pop of yellow

So bright colours are totally in for spring, but why stop at fashion?  I recently picked up this bright yellow eyeshadow from Inglot in Montreal and although yellow definitely isn’t for everyday, you can incorporate it in a more subtle way.  I kept my eyes pretty neutral and then used the yellow as an eyeliner along my lower lash lines for a pop of colour.

Let’s start!

First up of course, prime your lids with an eyeshadow primer.  I used Urban Decay’s Primer Potion (my favourite).

Using the colour Virgin from the Urban Decay Naked Palette, apply this all over your lids.

Using a fluffy crease brush, apply a dark grey colour (mine is from Inglot; Gunmetal from the Naked palette is very similar) in the crease and blend it in.

Taking a bright yellow colour, apply this on your lower lash line.  Then, using a black eyeliner, line your waterline.

Next, using the colour Virgin again, apply this on your browbone.

Finishing touches, line your eyes with a black eyeliner.  I used MAC’s Liquid Eye Liner in black and winged it out. Then curl your lashes and apply a mascara both your top and lower lashes.

Lastly, apply either concealer or a highlight under your eyes and some lipstick and you are all done. I used YSL’s Touche Eclat and MAC’s Innocence, Beware! lipstick.  If you choose you can apply the highlight or concealer after your foundation but I usually do this last in case there is any fallout from the eyeshadow.

And we are done!

I hope you enjoy the look and let me know if you tried it out!  I also dyed my hair in Montreal and although I think it’s okay, I don’t love it.  I’ll probably get caramel highlights again in a couple of months.
