15 Cool Examples of Yellow Glossy Lids

Makeup artists agree that in 2019, we’ll see fewer complex eye makeup looks involving cumbersome palettes and multiple shades of powder eye shadow and instead see brighter, simpler looks. “Bright-but-simple, bold eyes” is how Milk Makeup‘s studio artist Sara Wren describes the eye looks we’ll be seeing most this year.

My personal favorite manifestation of this makeup trend comes in the form of glossy, yellow lids, which have been blowing up on makeup artists’ Instagrams lately. “Egg yolk eyes” are the sunshiny, monochromatic antithesis to the classic dark smoky eye—and we are so here for the refreshing change.

Yellow might not seem like a flattering eye color at first, but because all skin tones have certain shades of yellow within them, it actually ends up looking dope on everyone. Pair the bold look with simple makeup—dewy skin, filled-in brows, a neutral lip—and the result is pretty damn cool. Don’t believe me? Keep scrolling for all the “egg yolk eyes” makeup inspo you need.
