Trend Prediction Fruition - Yellow Eyeshadow
Back when I started this blog in November 2009 ... on November 9, 2009 to be exact ...
I predicted "I foresee gorgeous washes of yellow eyeshadow for Spring and Summer 2010. From soft, daffodil pastels to bright, saturated neons to gold infused shimmers - yellow eyes will be where it's at."

And now, from Christina Aguilera in her controversial "Not Myself Tonight" video to Napoleon Perdis' Spring Cosmetic Collection, yellow eyeshadow is blooming everywhere! (By the way, I don't see what all of the fuss is about with Xtina "copying" all these other artists for the video. Hello people - the song is called, "Not Myself Tonight" - do we not see the irony here? Oye.)
I received a sampling of Napoleon Perdis' Spring Cosmetic Collection and was thrilled to find not one, but two yellows to play with!
In Perdis' Prismatic Eye Shadow Quad #6 there is a bright, matte purely pigmented yellow for those bold enough to rock the shade in it's glory. Try using a wet angle brush for sharp accents as eyeliner.
I also received their Loose Dust in Shiny Gold #1. Worn alone, this creates a sheer, shimmery wash of yellowish, gold. Try blending the color from lashes all the way up to the brow bone for a soft, but bold look.
