Scared of neon? Don’t be! Neon is so versatile right now. You don’t have to wait to glow at night — this season, feel free to pop bright colors all day long. If you are a beginner, the secret is to choose one feature on your face to emphasize with vibrant colors. Using neon shades on more than one facial feature can make your look too dramatic and overwhelming.

Bright Color Makeup — All Eyes On Your Electric Eyes
We can’t stop staring at the Urban Decay ELECTRIC Pressed Pigment Palette — the colors are so vibrant and inviting. The amount of looks you can create with the 10 electrifying neon colors are endless! The palette is perfect for everyone, no matter what color your eyes are, and they are guaranteed to pop.
Applying contrasting colors (blues and oranges, reds and greens, yellows and purples) against each other will create intense and bright, dramatic looks. Blend complimentary colors and shades in the same range for softer looks. Still feeling nervous about neons? Start out slowly and use one color as a liner to make your eyes pop, like Bella Thorne did, then experiment with a different color every time to find your favorite.
Show Stopping Lips
For highly-pigmented, vibrant lips, we love BUTTER LONDON LIPPY Liquid Lipstick. The gloss comes in 12 different shade. Try this look, like Rihanna did with her neon purple lips, or to compliment your neon eyes. For beginners, remember, less is more. When choosing a lipstick to along with your neon eyes, it’s best to find a color that is in the same range of shade. Lupita Nyong’o is a perfect example, by choosing pink lips to compliment her soft lilac shadow. Whereas, if she paired the same pink lipstick with a green eye shadow, it might be too much.
When it comes to adding neon blush, things can get tricky. If you are wearing a dramatic eye, go softer on your cheeks. If you are rocking a bold lip, finding a similar shade of blush creates a beautiful glowing look, just like Demi Lovato did at the Gay Pride event in NYC. Some of our favorite shimmery blushes are NARS Blushes. There are 30 gorgeous shades to choose from to compliment your bright and fun look. We’re partial to the shade Orgasm.
