Monochromatic makeup is a tricky trend to nail down, so our “Monochrome Moment” series is here to ease all of your one-color woes. Up this month: yellow makeup.

Name a time in your life when you casually pulled of a serious yellow makeup look? Once? And if it’s more than that, kudos to you.

But we’re here to change that because – as you already know – statement-making color is taking over the beauty world, and we’re all about it. And yellow is the hottest color right now. With this in mind, we encourage you to try out yellow beauty looks, whether that means adding subtle, shimmery gold eyeliner to your lids or committing to a bright yellow cut crease using a statement-making eyeshadow. No matter your personal taste, we’ve rounded up super cool yellow products to try right now. Even though the look is far from casual, we know you can rock yellow makeup.

1. NYX Professional Makeup Hot Singles Eyeshadow in Matte Yellow



We dare you to try and find a way to wear yellow eyeshadow in a subtle way. But if that proves as impossible as it seems, go for a statement-making yellow cut crease.

2. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Goldmine



For a look that’s less intense than bright-yellow shadow, opt for the Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Pencil in Goldmine. 

3. YSL Limited Edition Glossy Stain Undercoat



Layer this bright yellow undercoat underneath your favorite glossy stain to create a customized lip color. Or wear the yellow on its own – we dare you.

Who says fall equals dark manicures? Just as the polish name implies, “aim to misbehave” and dare to be different with this scandalous yellow citron shade.

5. Lime Crime Unicorn Hair Color

For serious yellow lovers, there’s this full-on hair color.
