Sarees are beautiful in general! Throw in a bright and shiny colour like yellow, and you’ll have a bunch of heads doing a double take when you walk by. The thing with this hue is that wearing it is enough to make a strong statement—pair it with the right kind of yellow saree makeup look, and you’ll be shining as bright as the sun. The only downside with this hue is that because it grabs all attention, your makeup look needs to balance it off. Therefore you need to pick the right makeup products to match. 

Yellow in general is a loud colour, so when you’re trying to pair it with the right makeup look make sure to pick something a little more subtle and less in your face. If this has stressed you out a little, then fret not! We’ve got you covered. Take inspiration from your favourite celebrities––here are 5 yellow saree makeup looks you can opt for the next time you think of taking that gorgeous hue for a ride. It’s your time to steal the spotlight, and this is definitely one way to do so!


Yellow Saree Makeup Looks To Try

The best part about sarees is that they come in different shades, textures, and fabrics. If you want to go for something more of an everyday wear, then opt for a cotton saree. Looking for something glam? Then shimmer and shine is your best friend. Similarly, while the hue might be the same, there are so many different ways to wear your makeup with it—and this also depends on the occasion. Striking that balance and keeping things oh-so-chic, we’ve curated some of the coolest and creative yellow saree makeup looks you can sport with your 9-yards of pure perfection.
