Move over millennial pink, there’s a new hue in town. Meet Gen Z yellow, the sunny shade that’s taking over our Insta feeds this summer. This bold number is everything its rosy big sis’ isn’t: carefree, daring and undeniably fun. But we’re not naive… slapping bright yellow on your face could end in disaster. Not sure how to rock it? Here’s how it’s done.

Pick your polish

If you don’t wanna go all out bananas just yet, opt for a yellow polish for a subtler way to nail the trend (sorry, not sorry). Barry M Coconut Infusion Nail Paint in Lemonade has a coconut-infused formula that leaves your nails looking super-glossy, making that bright colour pop even more!

Fancy something bolder? Up your smoky eye game with a bright yellow eyeshadow. Zendaya is smashing the trend here with a pop of our fave colour on the inner half of her eyelids. Blending Bleach London Louder Powder in Ph Ma seamlessly into a warm brown outer corner means all eyes will be on you (in a good way!).

Go for gold

Yellow is defo the new black, so switch the classic noir liner with a swipe of Gen Z. If you’re still not convinced that sunshine yellow is for you, choose a gold liner for a softer look. Try Barry M Bold Waterproof Eyeliner in Gold on your waterline for a pop of brightness, or for something even bolder, run a line of Rimmel Ink Me Up Eye & Body Liner in Golden Gang in your crease, for a real impact.
