How to Wear Yellow Makeup How to Wear Yellow Makeup How to Wear Yellow Makeup

Of all the marvelous things that happen to be yellow (bananas, baby ducks, daisies, to name a few), you probably wouldn’t put makeup on that list. Well, while it may not quite be a classic, yellow happens to be one of the hottest makeup trend colors at the moment. That’s right—from your eye makeup to your cheeks, covering your face in a canary color is all the rage for trendsetters and social media stars. If you’re ready to branch out, too, try these four not-so-mellow yellow makeup looks.


Looking for an eye shadow style that’s really eye-catching? Look no further than lacquering your lids in yellow.

Step 1: Prep with primer

Anytime you’re applying an eye shadow in a boldly bright shade, you’ll want to prep your lids. Smooth on an eye primer to help ensure your yellow shade goes on smoothly.

Step 2: Apply yellow eye shadow

Grab the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Eternal Sunshine and apply it all over your lids, then blend out with a fluffy eye shadow brush. Place a pearlescent white—like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Petite Perle—below your brows to lift the look of your arches.

Step 3: Tightline

A dramatic cat eye or smoked out eyeliner might distract from your yellow lids. Instead, tightline your eyes, which is a subtler eyeliner application technique. Create the “invisible eyeliner” effect by using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Black to gently place pigment on your upper waterline. The end result is a bolder eye and fuller-looking lashes.

Step 4: Coat your lashes

Can we really call this a complete eye makeup look if there isn't a coat of mascara involved? We think not! Reach for the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara and pull the brush through your lashes from root to tip to finish off your makeup look.


Sometimes, you just have to color outside the lines and put down your basic brown and black liners.

Step 1: Apply neutral eye shadow

Blend the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eye Shadow in Mix and Matte all over your lids and up to your brows to provide your eyeliner with a neutral canvas.

Step 2: Line your eyes

With a yellow liquid eyeliner, create a cat eye. The bigger the better for making a serious statement eye.

Step 3: Highlight

Your eyes don’t need much more than yellow eyeliner to pop, but a touch of highlighter never hurts. Dab the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator on the inner corners of your eyes to make them appear more open.

Step 4: Coat your lashes

Not to be repetitive, but mascara really is a necessity. Place the wand of the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara at the base of your lashes and sweep up to coat them for a full, dramatic look.


Yellow may not be the hue of your natural flush, but don’t let that stop you from using it to color your cheeks.

Step 1: Buff foundation in

Working your way from the base up, blend and buff the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight onto your skin using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender for a flawless finish.

Step 2: Blend in yellow blush

Taking a soft blush brush, blend a yellow shade onto the backs of your cheeks. If you can’t track down yellow blush, let a powder eye shadow serve double duty as blush.

Step 3: Contour your cheeks

Define your cheeks using the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Bronze It Bronzer for an instant sculpted effect.

Step 4: Highlight

Why wouldn’t you want your cheeks to glow? Sweep a golden highlight, which pairs perfectly with a yellow blush, above your cheekbones. Our pick: the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator in Golden.


We all own a million and one lipsticks that are almost the same shade, but why not add something new into the mix?

Step 1: Line your lips

Use a clear or nude lip liner to line and fill in your lips before moving on to lipstick. The lip liner will act as primer to help ensure your lipstick wears evenly.

Step 2: Swipe on yellow lipstick

Just as you normally apply lipstick, smooth on your yellow shade.

Step 3: Add a clear gloss

For an extra-glossy look, add a layer of clear gloss to your pout.

Step 4: Correct with concealer

Yellow lipstick is not a style that suits blurred, uneven edges. Pick up the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer and draw around your mouth to correct any mistakes. Blend out, and you’re ready to pucker up.
