Spring/Summer look#9 : Experiment with NYX ‘Yellow’ Jumbo pencil

Hi everyone!

This is an experiment I tried using NYX Jumbo eye pencil in the shade ‘Yellow‘.  I wanted a yellow all over lid color with a hint of blue at the outer corner and crease but instead it turned out a milky-white with a hint of yellow and blue.

I paired the eye makeup with a bright pink lipstick for a colorful spring/summer look.  This is definitely not a subtle look but the lighter (milky-white-yellow) shade in combination with the blue gives a bright look to the eyes. I’d pair this look with a monochrome outfit in greyed down shades of blue, green or safer neutral shades- balck, white and beige.

Here’s the final look –
