Nicole’s Neon Eye:

  • Wet ‘n Wild Color Icon Shadow Trio in I Dream of Greenie — I used the bottom shade in the brightest green. Using the Tarte Double Ended Liner brush, I wet the domed flat side of the brush in a bit of water and dipped the brush into the neon green eyeshadow and pat in on top of the white eyeliner to really bring out the pigment in the shadow.

Nicole’s Neon Lip:

  • A great tip when using any dark, bright colored  or matte lip is to use a concealer around the bottom under your lower lip to stop from any color bleeding and to really define the lip line and to  brighten the color even more building a finer contrast between the skin tone and the lipstick. I used the Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Concealer that comes with a small brush in the compact to get the most precise area underneath your bottom lip and also smoothens out any imperfections or uneven lines of the lipstick.
