Yellow and Purple Summery Eyes

Hey Beauties!

Summer is always that time of year, when I see so much colorful inspirational makeup looks and the season that just inspires you to wear bolder colors. I love my safe neutral warm choices, but every now and then I feel like I need some color. Makeup should be fun and so was creating this colorful wearable makeup look.

I always start my eye makeup with eye primer and bone colored matte shade as a base. Then I added warm light brown matte shade in the crease and darkened it with redish medium matte brown, especially in the outer corner. I decided to play with yellow and purple. On my inner part of the lid, I applied vibrant shimmery yellow shade. 

Then I added matte orange shade on the outer part of the lid to give that half of the lid a warmer, darker and more orange base. I then went over it with the same yellow shade, but left out the very outer corners. There I use two matte medium and dark brown shades to darken outer corner. This creates gradient from yellow to orange to brown.

Around the lower lash line I applied light pastel purple. I darkened outer portion with darker vibrant purple. Of course I had to finish with black winged liner.

At the end I applied black mascara and added some really natural false eyelashes. I also added light golden yellow in the inner corner of the eye to further accentuate that upper gradient and make eyes look more awake.

On my face I did the usual foundation and concealer routine. No summer makeup would be complete without bronzer. Bronzer is seriously my most abused summer product. It just instantly gives you that sun kissed look. I also applied a very yellow toned light golden highlighter and apricot satin blush. On my lips I used light peach matte liquid lipstick to make the whole look warmer and summery.

I got a few compliments with this look and it's definitely one of those looks that doesn't look too over the top, but gives you that fun summer color. Upper lid almost looks like a summer sunset and purple is a complimentary shade that makes yellow pop even more. I just love combination of these two shades. What colored eyeshadow would you wear for fun summer makeup?
