FOTD: Bright and Tasteful

I had an urge to wear yellow eyeshadow on Tuesday, and I needed something wearable for work. Not that bright yellow isn't wearable at my job where no one really cares, but I do try to prevent my boss from saying something so that I then have to watch my hair colors and makeup and tone them down. I used Robyn as inspiration as she always does lovely yellow looks.

I love the lid shade, but I'm not a huge fan of the liner. I originally wanted to use my bright blue Sephora liquid liner, but I thought it would be too garish. Now I wish I had -- the glitter just isn't doing it for me. But the look is still pretty, and I hope you enjoy. (I also included another outfit picture, lots of people ask for them!)

BTW, Violetta looks like this. I promise.

  1. This is so pretty! I can never get yellow eye shadow to work for me, but maybe I'll give it another go.

  10. Dat yellow! Amg! I really really love this look! I wish I looked as good in yellow as you did. I really like how you paired it with a light brown crease, it gave the whole look a quirky yet work appropriate feel. Adorbs!

  11. Hot friggin damn, I am SO stealing this. I think the glitter liner works perfectly, and I loooove the yellow.

    My Violetta is much more purple than that, but the one I swatched during the Venomous Villains release looked like yours. That's why I thought "ugh it's fuchsia on me" and put it back, only to buy it a few months later and get a purple one XD
