Egg-Yolk Eyes Is the IG Trend We Can't Stop Seeing

Say bye bye to complex eyeshadow looks and hello basic brights!

2019 is all about bold yet simplified eyeshadow looks that are easy to apply and pack a major punch. The brightest of the bunch? Egg-yolk eyes that have been sweeping Instagram by storm. Fear not, this look is much more polished than it sounds.

Egg-yolk eyes, also known as the striking, glossy yellow lids rimmed with white liner that you've seen peeking up on the gram, are the beauty world's latest obsession. While yellow might seem like a tricky color to pull off, all skin tones have a little bit of yellow in them, so it's easier to find a flattering shade than one might think.

Below, all the egg-yolk eyes inspiration by skin tone so you can try out the look for yourself.

Porcelain

Canary, opaque yellow shadow really pops against porcelain skin. For even more drama, add on white mascara.

Vanilla

Glossy yellow lids compliment hazel eyes and vanilla skin so well and shearing the shadow out gives the look an effortless edge.

Medium Cool Tone

Medium cool tone skin can pull off almost any shade of yellow because you have so much contrast, but one on the lighter pastel side really makes a statement.

Mocha

For skin tones with strong yellow or olive undertones, play off the olive and choose a glossy yellow lid with a tinge of green for a '70s-inspired moment.

Rich Chocolate

For darker skin tones, play up the drama with the brightest yellow shade you can find. Yellow really pops against brown skin, and even looks cool with a strong drop shadow underneath the bottom lid.
