Black 'n Yellow

I own a bunch of Yellow eye shadows, but I am usually hesitant to use them, as they are overly bright and tend to look a tad janky. However, when I was learning to perfect my gele (head tie)skills the other day, I noticed the yellow in my top and decided to experiment with my BH cosmetics yellow eye shadow. Since the yellow was highly pigmented, I kept the rest of the eyes minimal by using a light orange shade as a transition color. I also ditched the black eye shadow that I usually use for a smokey effect, and opted for a brown shade. To offset the bright yellow, I lined my bottom lid with the darkest eye pencil I could find. I kept the lips toned down with a light mauve color and lined them with a dark brown and red pencil...and voila, the final look!

What do you guys think of this look? Please let me know what you think in the comment section. Have a great weekend.

I was just about to ask who tied the gele, you did great!

I've really got to get aboard the eyeshadow train, it always looks so nice when it's done properly like yours.

Have a lovely weekend.

I think it's a gorgeous combo. I am also afraid of bright eye shadow, but this looks very nice! I wish I knew how to tie a gele!
