Neon is summer's hottest trend, especially when it comes to accessories. But how about taking a fashion-forward step, and working neon into your makeup look? No, we're not talking bright yellow blush, nor electric blue lips. Here are three ways of wearing neon makeup, without ending up looking more circus-clown than trendsetter.
Bright orange lipstick
We <3 orange lips! And if you don't believe us, check out how big the trend has been getting, with celebrities from Kate Bosworth to Lupita Nyong'o all working the tangerine pout. Orange might be the new black, but it's also the new red!
Electric purple eyes
We've heard it on the beauty grapevine: there's a makeup trend heading over from Europe, and it's going to make you blink... colored mascara! And we don't mean plum or dark brown here - it's all about shocking purples, bright pinks, lime greens... you get the idea. The advantage of colored mascara is that you don't have to worry about eyeshadow or bright lip color. It does all the work for you. Shocking!
Acid yellow eyes
The only time we'd recommend putting acid on your eyes is when we're talking acid yellow (the color, of course). And because this is such a striking color, why don't you go against the grain - or the shape of your eyelids - and apply the eye shadow in an unusual graphic style. Be a rebel!
Maybe you think that these three examples would only work for a rave party. But just you wait, you'll start to see them on our continent any day now! Will you be one of the trendsetters?
