MELLOW YELLOW

My favorite color this summer is yellow!  I swear every picture I have of me recently is in a yellow shirt!  Today, I worked with some yellows and greens for eyeshadow so that I was all matching.

I used GOSH eye shadows, A yellow one, and then lined the eyes with the teal color.  I used some Loreal on the outer eye in a neon kinda green color!  I have to say that my new makeup brushes are kinda fun!  I think I used about 7 of them trying out different techniques out.

Can you tell I have a tan?  Well I cheated!  This is the results of yesterdays post!  I think it looks pretty natural, (or at least I think it does) I love it!  Anyways.  I don't know how much you can really talk about the color yellow, so instead I think I'm just going to post a bunch of pictures of me in yellow!
Okay, this looks ridiculous (with all pictures and no writing), so I think I should start writing some more! haha.  Darn preview tool!  Anyways, I was wondering what you guys thought of matching eye shadows?  Is it a do, or is it a don't?  Should you do contrasting colors with your outfits?  I think I like the whole matching thing.  On another note... I used to have this eyeshadow, I don't know who made it or what its called... maybe something like Oak??  Anyways, I finally threw it out, because I'd had it for like 4 years, and never ended up getting to the bottom of it (close, but not totally finished it)  I'm sad I threw it out now, because it was my favorite!  It was always the go to color in my makeup bag.  It was a mixture of like gold and brown, but not a bronze color.  Anyways.  I'm going to have to go shopping and see if I can find it again.  My guess is I probably won't because they seem to enjoy discontinuing every single product I can't live without!  Anyways... I think this little rant filled up the rest!  The bottom picture is from a few days ago.  Sometimes I just like my more natural self better than when I actually play with colors, but the shirt is still yellow so its all tied in!  Plus it proves that I actually started to get a little bit of a tan!  GO  ME!
Hope you guys are all having a fantastic weekend!  I hope the sun is bright and shining where you are!

I'm thinking your yellow is quite close to lime...I like it on your eyes (and shirt as well)...here I thought you weren't a fan of bright eyeshadow...

Yellow is a nice summery color! :) And makes everything a little bit brighter!

I love yellow, it's such a happy color. Though I don't think I could get away with it as eye make up because of my skin pigment.
Yes, you have a beautiful tan. The sun loves me, I get a tan in my car. Let alone the beach.

BTW, you have such beautiful eyes, all colors look good with those peppers.
