Black and Yellow Beauty

I love the boldness and brightness of the color yellow! Everything about it just makes me think happy thoughts, and any time I get to use yellow in my makeup looks I do a little happy dance inside. Recently I've had the opportunity to do two dramatic looks using yellow and black. The first look came from from a shoot with Sam Green at, where my model was fellow makeup artist Talia Murchie.

I love how the yellow makes her eyes just pop! I used the Makeup Forever Flash Color Palette for the yellow and black, the NARS Copacobana highlighter on her cheekbones, and my favorite bronzer from Pur Minerals for a contour.


The second look was with Roger Hur from,  where I didn't use any yellow in the makeup, but the beautiful color was instead draped around my amazing model Kendra.


I used the same highlighter and bronzer on the cheekbones as the first look, and I used the Make Up Forever Flash Color palette on the lips, with the Rimmel lip gloss in black.

Don't believe me when I say yellow will bring out your happy dance? Try it for yourself! Next time you're feeling a little down, throw on something in yellow and enjoy the extra bounce in your step!
