Are you wearing a yellow ensemble for a cousin’s wedding and are stumped on how to do your makeup? No ensemble is complete without the right makeup. There are a number of ideas that you can implement to make your features pop and exude class through makeup and dress. Some of them are described below.
The base makeup with yellow dress should be natural and muted. Do not try to outshine the colour of your dress; it will end in a sparkly, garish disaster. A light, breezy look on your face is desirable as yellow is a warm colour. To look flawless yet natural, start with your best friend – the concealer. Cover up your blemishes and blend with your finger as you go. For foundation, pick one that melts into your skin without leaving any distinguishable trace. If you cannot find a shade exactly like your skin tone, blend two foundations (one darker, one lighter) to get the desired shade. Put this on evenly with a makeup sponge. You can also choose a good tinted moisturizer instead of a foundation.
If you are one of those lucky few who can carry off a yellow dress, make sure you choose makeup that belongs to the warm colour family.
While your base is humble, let your cheeks speak of warmth and a healthy glow. Cream based sheer cheek tints are good for this purpose. Powder bronzers work well too. Now, how to apply bronzer or blush depends on your facial structure and how you want to highlight it. If you want to have a rosy glow, almost like a natural flush, you should apply the tint on the apple of your cheek. If you want to highlight your cheekbones, then apply it just under your cheek and blend towards the temple with a brush. With a yellow dress, blush colours like peach, coral, warm pinks and orange look nice.

Whether you are wearing your yellow flow-ey dress to the prom or a wedding, getting the eye makeup right is important! There are various ways you can do your eye makeup for yellow dress. While the smokey look is a stunner and goes well with almost anything, you could focus on your lips and put simple kohl lines on your eyes.
For kohl-rimmed eyes, start by covering your lids with a metallic cream based eye colour in a neutral or light brown shade. With a very dark pencil, draw a thin, dark line around the lashes. With a black kohl pencil, retrace the lines to make your eyes pop.
To create smokey eyes, first cover your eyelids with a cream colour. Smudge with a brown shadow on the inner side of the light and charcoal grey on the lash line. With an angled brush, create a V-shaped wing tip with matte black eye shadow and trace all over the upper and lower lash lines. Finish with black liner. To enhance your smokey eyes, add a dab of champagne glitter in the middle of the upper lid and near the tear ducts.

If you are doing smokey eyes, you best keep your lips neutral. You can opt for pink or orange lip butter. Or, you can put a nude pink or rose lipstick. A yellow dress with bright red makeup is one combo you best avoid! You will stand out in a crowd like a sore thumb, with a buttery yellow and bright red combo!
If your eyes and cheeks have natural makeup, you can step up your game with a bold red lipstick. This is a quirky look with two warm, popping colours. But make sure your eyes don’t have elongated cat eyes or dark shadows to keep distractions to a bare minimum.
Start with a pink or peach lip liner across the edges of the lips. Now pick a brownish red you like (warm shades are desirable) and cover your lips with it. Blot with a tissue and you’re ready.
Yellow signifies warmth and sunshine. Keep your makeup minimalistic and accessories as subtle as they can be, and you will be exuding confidence and elan!
