We’ve seen it sprawled across our Insta feeds and broken down in YouTube tutorials: Yellow toned eyeshadow is *the* summer makeup trend that’s here to stay. It’s also true that this sunflower shade looks stunning on every skin tone, which is why we rounded up our favorite marigold (not yellow!) makeup to try for your next high-temp soirée.
Maybelline was onto something when they came out with this Lemonade Craze Palette earlier last month. Not only do all the tones accentuate a yellow-makeup cool factor, the bright marigold shade of the palette — aptly named Lemonade Craze — totally has our heart.
If you’re looking for an extremely pigmented shadow to up your marigold makeup game, Go Lightly by Colourpop is the shadow for you. This pigment is perfect for mixing if you’re looking to create a sunflower colored liquid eyeshadow, or is gorgeous on its own packed onto the lid or crease.
Let’s get it straight — colored eyeliner is another exceptional way to bump up your marigold makeup game, and this gel liner by Ofra is exactly what you need if you want a little color without the full eye makeup commitment. This glides on super pigmented and can be built up into a gorgeous wing or just a simple line.
To bring the marigold magic down to your fingertips, Los Feliz by Odeme will be your go-to summer nail polish for 2018. It brightens up your manicure with a rich, goldy-yellow pigment, and we absolutely love that it’s anything but sheer.
Marigold-yellow doesn’t just come in literal makeup form — this chroma is also unique in its ability to color-correct like no other. The Lancôme Teint Idole Color Corrector is perfect for those stubborn discolorations or imperfections under the skin, and it’s totally magic.
If you’re looking to test a new eyeshadow trend featuring this sunflower-shade, we recommend the new NYX Holo Eye Tint in Gold Bar. This creamy, iridescent golden-yellow glides on with just one swipe, and you’ll never be able to get enough — we guarantee it.
