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.

    I love your skirt too :) I keep meaning to check out Forever 21 because their plus collection is amazing!

  2. Love this! Love the brown on the lower lashline as well. Will have to steal this - and I for one love the glitter.

  3. Ohh that is so gorgeous! I love all the colour combinations :) Your outfit is so cute too!

  4. Pretty! You have a lovely lip shape too.

  5. OMG I sooo love this eye combo! It is sooo gorgeous and Voletta looks amazing on u!! I NEED it!! I missed you and thank you so much for worrying about me and staying in touch with me through such a hard time in my life. I really appreciate it and I am so happy to get back in to blooging. It is such a passion of mine!! :D
    I love you girl!!

  6. Ah! Another beautiful skirt I cannot have! Wendy, this eye make-up is super pretty. Pink and yellow is an amazing combination. Love the glittery liner/brown under the eye.

  7. Aaaahhhh! Love this look! You rock the yellow shadow! Wow! And the lippie looks so amazing with this look!

  8. 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!

  9. 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

  10. Ok, I have to side with some of the gals...
    I LOVE this look, and I think the glitter liner with it ROCKS!

    You're gorgeous, dahhhlink!

  11. Oooh I really like the glitter! I also love the crease colour with the yellow, it all came together really well.
