Yellow is not just for spring and summer, or for when you’re feeling bold and…lemony? I don’t know. My point is, (matte) yellow eyeshadow can look amazing on all skin tones, particularly golden and brown skin tones. Yellows, oranges, reds and browns are all part of the fall landscape, so I’m bringing yellow eyeshadow into fall…uhh, I mean autumn (I keep getting told off by British people that I’ve been here long enough so I should be saying ‘autumn’ not ‘fall’).
I am wearing a golden, medium yellow (almost a marigold) all over my lids.; it’s the only colour eyeshadow I’m wearing. I’m mixing cool and warm colours by pairing a warm golden shadow with cool pomegranate coloured lipstick.
