Looks: Bright yellow and pink + Tag

Hello ladies,

hope you are all having a nice day. I haven’t worn makeup much this past week as I had a bad cold and was too lazy to apply anything to my face.

But now that I’m better I decided to do something really bright to make up for lost time using the Lemon shade from Beauty From The Earth my friend Ana sent me. Thanks hun, I LOVE this color, it’s so bright and pigmented. And it’s very easy to work with too.

I’ve decided to pair it with some pink and purples and here is what came out:

bright yellow and pink 01

bright yellow and pink 02

bright yellow and pink 03

Products used:
– Urban Decay Primer Potion
– Beauty From The Earth eyeshadow in Lemon
– ELF Brightening Eye Color in Pretty n Pink (soft pink)
– Makeup Masala eyeshadow in Agni
– Sleek Original eyeshadow palette (bright purple)
– Sleek Curious eyeshadow palette (dark purple)
– Get in Line palette (pale beige)
– L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion mascara
– Max Factor Masterpiece Max mascara

– Apply Urban Decay Primer Potion all over lid as a base.
– Apply a yellow shade (I used Beauty From The Earth shadow in Lemon) on the lid and, using MAC 219 pencil brush, swipe some on the inner lower lashline too.
– Apply a soft pink shade (I used the one in ELF Brightening Eye Color in Pretty n Pink) on the inner crease.
– Swipe a very bright pink shade (I used Makeup Masala eyeshadow in Agni) on the crease and blend.
– Apply a bright purple shade (I used the one in Sleek Original palette) on the crease to darken it. Be careful not to bring the color up too much.
– Swipe a dark purple shade (I used the one in Sleek Curious palette) on the outer corner to darken it even more. Using MAC 219 pencil brush, apply some on the outer lower lashline and blend.
– Swipe a pale beige shade (I used the one in Get in Line palette) on the browbone to highlight.
– Finish off with mascara.

    Vonvon, I agree, finding a good yellow shade is hard. I like what a true and bright color this is. The pink shade is from Makeup Masala but I think she has stopped making mineral makeup now. It’s a shame cos her line was good :(

    Thanks Tavia. Yellow eyeshadow can be daunting to wear, but you should give it a try, it’s a beautiful color. You can wear a soft one and pair with browns if you’re not comfortable wearing brights. And I wish spring was around the corner, it’s freezing here :)
