ALL OVER YELLOW:
Wearing all over yellow eyeshadow is probably the most easiest way of rocking this fun shade. It's easy, effortless and as mentioned above, it doesn't require too much to make it stand out. From bright yellow to soft pastels, you'll be beaming bright rays of sunshine with this look!
With an all over yellow, combine peach and coral hues to soften the look. Make sure your complexion has a radiant finish to complete this summery glowy look.
If you go with an all over yellow eyeshadow look, you can really embellish the look to suit your style - graphic liner, glitter accents, abstract art and glitter tears are a few looks you can create!
For an evening look, go with a neon color palette and combine with soft taupes, greys and browns for a soft smokey look. Keep everything else neutral so the focus is all on the eyes.
YELLOW CUT CREASE:
As much as we love yellow all on its own, sometimes you just need some extra drama. Create a cut crease in a complimentary shade and finish with lashes and winged liner for that glam factor. Embellish with florals and painted designs for a fun look.
Dramatize a yellow lid with smoldering black in a cut crease style for killer bee vibes.

Be prepared for a whole lotta this as you shine bright like a diamond.
