Bright Yellows

I woke up to a horrible thunderstorm this morning & all I wanted was the sun to come out. That never happened, so I decided to do a bright sunny spring/summer look using 3 different yellows inspired by the sun. This is a yellow eye done right :) enjoy!

  1. prime your lids with MAC "painterly" paint pot
  2. using a 239 brush, pat MAC "going bananas" (limited edition) all over the lid, blending out the edges
  3. next take MAC "chrome yellow" on a 217 brush & blend this onto the outer 2/3 of the lid, sweeping into the crease
  4. then take MAC "goldenrod" on a 219 brush & blend it into the outer V & smudge down onto the outer 1/3 of your bottom lash line
  5. blend MAC "going bananas" (limited edition) onto the inner 2/3 of the lower lash line
  6. blend out any hard edges with a 227 brush using MAC "gesso"
  7. with a 275 brush, apply MAC "white frost" to the inner corner of your eyes
  8. fill in your brows (i used MAC "corduroy")
  9. using a black eyeliner pencil, line your tightline (i used Rimmel London "jet black")
  10. line your water line with a white eyeliner pencile (i used Bonnebell Eye Definer "glow")
  11. using any black eyeliner (gel, cream, liquid, pencil) line your upper lash line (i used NYX Jumbo Pencil "black bean" with a fine tip eyeliner brush)
  12. apply your favourite mascara, i used Benefit "bad gal"
  1. first prime your skin using clean fingers with either a moisturizer or foundation primer, i used Nivea Visage Light Moisturizing Day Care
  2. next conceal under your eyes (i used the salmon colour in the Coastal Scents Camo Quad "light")
  3. next conceal any other imperfections on your skin (i used the greenish yellow colour in the Coastal Scents Camo Quad "light" as well as the peach colour)
  4. apply your foundation (i used MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural "light")
  5. if using non powder foundation, set with powder.
  6. next take your contour colour with a 168 brush and contour the hollows of your cheekbones and anywhere else you'd like (i used the darkest colour in the Coastal Scents Camo Quad "dark")
  7. apply with a fluffy dome brush (i used the "blush" brush from Visage), MAC "bite of an apple" blush (limited edition) to the apples of your cheeks & blend up along your cheekbone
  8. finally dust a little of Too Faced "snow bunny bronzer" onto the top of your cheekbones up to your temple as a highlight with a 188 brush
  1. prime your lips with a lip primer or lip balm, i used California Mango lip balm
  2. apply MAC "glaringly hip" (limited edition) lipstick
