Mellow Yellow

Happy Spring everyone!! This look using yellow, but making it very wearable.  I would go so far as to say office/meeting ready.  I used the 120 palette 2nd edition for the amazing selection of yellow shades and textures.  I hope you enjoy.

The first thing I did, as usual, was apply a base to help the colors last and stay vibrant.  I applied a creamy white pencil all over the lid and up to the brow bone using a #954 brush.

I then went into this bright, matte yellow and applied it into the inner corner of the top and bottom lids.  I brought the color about 1/3 of the way onto the top lid with the #941.

Then, using the same brush, picked up a shimmery, darker yellow and applied it to the rest of the top lid, making sure to blend so that the colors merged seamlessly.

With a fluffy #863 brush I blended a matte, light brown into the crease to really ground the look.

For a final touch I used a brown liner and ran it across the entire top lid.  I then set it using the #772 and a metallic coppery brown color.

Two coats of your favorite mascara and we are ready to take on spring!

I hope you enjoyed the look.  If you have any questions you can email me: beauty@stylefordummies.com, tweet me: @sedonalace_Leah, or you can find more information on this look and others on my personal blog: www.stylefordummies.com.

Until next time!!
