Throw out your beauty inhibitions and enjoy all things yellow. If there’s one colour that we’ve been obsessed with this year, you best believe that it’s none other than this bright number.
We’ve had a go with the yellow eyeshadow look earlier on this month as one of our Back-To-School Makeup looks, and all we have to say is — we’re still hooked! Yes, incorporating a splash of yellow to our lids may be a huge leap for some but trust us when we say that adding a dash of yellow blush to your cheeks, might just be a look that we could ALL pull off.
You might think we’re going a little overboard with this beauty trend but we can assure that you won’t look like you just highlighted your face with a yellow highlighter.
For a more subtle look, you can check out how Gigi Hadid did hers with a touch of yellow on her cheeks. It’s a softer look as it blends well with a peach blush that’s perfect for the season.
And no, you don’t have to have a certain skin tone to rock this look. Women of all colours were seen to rock this look effortlessly as it really accentuates the facial features in the most unconventional way thought possible.

Many beauty gurus and bloggers have taken onto Instagram to show us how this universally flattering shade transforms your look from 0 to 100 real quick!
So what does it take to achieve this bold look you may ask? We’ve listed some of the key palettes you can get your hands on for that bright and sunny glow.
For a look that’s more versatile and mattifying, try Huda Beauty’s Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette in Coral. What we love most about this palette, just like the other palettes by Huda Beauty, is its insane pigmentation. Besides, it blends really well, so it’ll go great, whether you’re opting for a bold or subtle (and maybe a hint of blush too while you’re at it).
Finding a yellow blusher can be a little tough considering that there aren’t many to begin with. Still, you shouldn’t limit your options when in fact, you can sweep your eyeshadow across your cheeks as well, just like this eyeshadow palette by Zoeva. The Zoeva Blanc Fusion Palette can be used as an eyeshadow palette, contouring palette, and even a blush for that yellow mellow look. A shimmering tinge of golden honey dusted on your cheekbones never looked this good!
Last but not least, our all-time favourite — Fenty Beauty’s Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife. Fans of Fenty Beauty themselves are probably familiar with this pick that’s known for its highly intense pigmentation and glow that’s packed with glitter — you’ll be glowing for days on end! An essential if you want to achieve the perfect yellow glow.
