Don’t be afraid of bright yellow eyeshadow! This color can really bring attention to your eyes while still not looking extremely shocking. I chose purple shades for my blush and lip color to complement the bright yellow eyeshadow. Purple and yellow are complementary colors (a pair of colors that are of opposite hue on the color wheel). Complementary colors are aesthetically pleasing to the eye, so when purple and yellow are worn together they make each other appear brighter.

The picture in the middle was taken without flash, which I’ve included since flash can sometimes be harsh.
I wore a purplish fuchsia dress with gold decoration along the chest and neckline. I also ended up curling my hair and attaching a bright yellow bow to match my makeup.
