How to achieve a statement yellow halo eye

What primary color would go perfectly with your sunny disposition? Why yellow, of course. Yellow eye makeup has been dominating every runway this season, which of course means the trend has been making the rounds on Instagram, and beauty influencers to-and-fro have been flaunting the hue on their eyelids. If you’re having concerns about pulling off such an effervescent shade, remember there are many hues to choose from on the market. If your personality is on the bubbly side, you may find yourself gravitating toward canary yellow. If you’re a little less bubbly, a more subdued tone like mustard might be the perfect shade for you.
Levity is paramount when rocking a yellow eye makeup look, so don’t be afraid to have a little fun with your eyeshadow application. Go for a monochromatic look by sheering one shade of yellow onto your lids, or be more adventurous like our model — who uses three different hues to achieve her flawless statement eye. You know what they say -- Seeing is believing! This tutorial is here to reinforce your decision to dip your brush where it seldom goes on your eyeshadow palette: down the yellow brick road. Are you game?

Materials
- Matte yellow eyeshadow
- Deep mustard eyeshadow
- Shimmery yellow eyeshadow
- Two fluffy blending brushes
- Flat synthetic brush
- Concealer
- Mascara
Directions
1. First, add a layer of matte yellow eyeshadow onto the creases of each eyelid with a fluffy blending brush, then blend.
2. Using the other blending brush, intensify the color by applying the deeper mustard eyeshadow onto your lids. Don’t forget to keep blending!
3. Take the same mustard shade and work it onto the inner and outer corners of each lid. Then, bring the blending brush down to your lower lash lines — staying as close to the lash lines as possible.
4. Next, take the flat synthetic brush and dab a layer of concealer onto the center of your lids. Then, pat the shimmery yellow eyeshadow on top of the concealer. This neat little trick helps to open the center of the eyes, making them appear wider.
5. Lastly, don’t forget to load up on mascara!
Pat yourself on the back! You’ve just mastered this season’s It-color!
