MAC Chrome Yellow… Certainly doesn’t look like the easiest shadow color to pull off on a day to day basis. However, I’ve made it a quest of mine to create as many wearable looks with this bright yellow eye shadow as I can.

This FOTD is currently my favorite way of wearing it, as it makes the yellow look vibrant yet casually and wearable.

Eyes: Base: MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre Lid: MAC Chrome Yellow, Sleek ‘Moss’ (from the Sleek Au Natural palette), Sleek ‘Noir’ onto the upper lash line Crease: MAC Charcoal Brown Brow bone: Sleek ‘Nougat’ Lashes: Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara Eyebrows: MAC Omega I applied the yellow e/s all over the lid and 1/2 on the inner lower eye lid. I then applied the color ‘Moss’ on 3/4 of the outer eye lid, blending it into the crease and onto 1/2 of outer lower eye lid. I darkened up the outer corner and crease by blending in a dark muted brown shade. Finished off by pushing some carbon black e/s onto the upper lash line for some definition. Highlighted the brow bone with a matte beige, curled my lashes with my favorite Chanel eye lash curler and applied a generous amount of black mascara.


Concealer: Garnier Roll-On Anti-Dark Circles in Light/Medium
Foundation: Revlon Nearly Naked in Shell + Ivory
Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent
Blush/bronzer: Stila Convertible Color in Lillium

For the face I used the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation in ‘Shell’ and ‘Ivory’ since Shell is a tad too dark for me during these cold months. I feel like I can get away with it anyway if I mix in some Ivory. After buffing this one in with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush, I gently dabbed a bit of Lillium on my cheekbones and buffed it in with the buffing brush. Powdered it off with a tiny bit of power and boom, face done.

How would you make yellow eyeshadow work?
