Yel­low make-up has taken the run­way by storm


Yel­low is a vi­brant colour and to get the most out of it you need to en­sure you choose a shade that com­ple­ments your skin tone. Mus­tard and deep yel­lows com­ple­ment both dark and light skin tones best, while pas­tel yel­lows work bet­ter on fairer skin types. Medium-to-olive skin tones should stick to bright and vi­brant yel­lows.


Don’t be afraid to play with colour. Go bright and bold with your eye­shadow. Try [1] MAC Eye Shadow X 9/Tropic Cool Times Nine in Lemon Rush R590 or [4] INGLOT Free­dom Sys­tem Eye­shadow #60 R89 for an in­tense pig­mented ef­fect. Ap­ply hap­haz­ardly over the lids for a fun and dra­matic ef­fect. Add a touch of shiny gloss with [2] MAC Yel­low Jacket Lip­glass R230 for a sleek look. To cre­ate a geo­met­ric ef­fect, use [3] MAC Colour Play Chro­ma­graphic Pen­cil in Pri­mary Yel­low R250.
