Makeup Challenge: Mellow Yellow

This week's NTMS challenge is Mellow Yellow so here's my look. It's not that mellow really but I don't think that matters, lol. I thought it was bright and cheerful, it reminded me of Spring! Also I don't know if it's noticeable but.. my Dad has been watching Hawaii Five-0 on Netflix and mentioned the fashion of the time, so I may have had Mod 60s makeup in the back of my mind when I did this. x3
Please click the pics to view in better detail!

-BH 120 Palette, 1st edition (matte yellow on outer corner, matte white on lid)
-Sugarpill Buttercupcake (middle lid)
-BFTE "Sweet Nibblets" (inner lid)
-BFTE "Satin Sheets" (browbone)
-BFTE "Very Vanilla" (blend edges)
 -Loreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black felt tip liquid liner pen
-Sephora mini white pencil (waterline)
-Cover Girl Lash Perfection mascara in Very Black
-Red Cherry lashes #747S
-Ardell Latex-Free clear lash adhesive (this stuff sucks)
-BH 120 Palette, 1st edition (matte medium brown on brows)

-mark. face primer
-Revlon Colorstay foundation (Ivory/Buff mixed)
Darling Girl Cosmetics:
-Boy Crazy blush (used as bronzer/contour)
-Cheeky blush
-Cherry Bomb blush
-Evil Shades blush in Atomic
-BFTE "Pyxis" highlighter
-Hard Candy Glamoflauge concealer in Light
-mark. setting powder

-OCC Lip Tar in Queen
-CS 66 lipcolor palette, various shades
-NYX gloss in Smokey Look
-some other random stuff I can't remember lol

This look is a lot more... monochromatic than I usually do. I kept wanting to add other colors but since it was for a challenge I wanted to keep the focus on the yellow.
I had a lot of problems with this one, like I don't know what I did wrong but my eyelids immediately began creasing badly and you can kind of see it in some of the pics. >.<
The Ardell clear lash glue is terrible and I don't think I'll be using it anymore. I thought it might be better/easier/less messy than my Duo Dark but alas, it's not. It gets sticky after a second and it's hard to get enough on the lash to make it stick to your eyes. I've used it in my last few looks and you might be able to see the lash strip actually coming off in some of the pics. Not impressed :/
No-flash pic. My lips didn't look that mottled in real life :(
I got a little bored while editing these pics and it finally dawned on me that the makeup looks the same from every angle... it's not very complex so it makes it hard to get a variety of pics that are  interesting, lol. Oh well ;P
Different camera, no flash.
Anyway,  still enjoyed doing this since it's not something I'd ordinarily have done. I hope you enjoyed it :)
 Thanks for reading!<3

  1. Wooooooooooow ♥ this is totally pretty! ♥ I would wear this in summer with yellow flats and a yellow bag!! ♥ Awww, I love it!

  7. This is awesome :D Your eyeliner is so perfect!

  8. AWESOME! I love graphic yellow looks!

  9. Gorgeoussss! I agree with Phlox, the yellow looks amazing on you!

  10. hey i love this look! everything is just beautiful! and that thick, exaggerated eyeliner is a million thumbs up!

    and btw, using neon is not dangerous to use (unless you are really sensitive) the packaging just says so since the rules of different colours changes depending on what country you live in.
    if you want to try neon i suggest you take a look at sleek make up acid palette. contains a lot of neon but is really cheap! look for it on eBay if you don't find it elsewhere!!! have fun with neon!/Azure

  11. that liner looks perfect! I should try wearing yellow more, the eye look is great
