How to Wear Neon Makeup

Neon Makeup Summer 2010
We just love a trend that lasts more than one fleeting season. Spring 2010 saw a resurgence of neon makeup colors, which look super fetching on fair skin after a harsh winter spent hiding under coats and sweaters. Summer's essential bronzed glow calls for neons in orange, pink and electric teal (try on a tan now in our virtual makeover studio). Feeling bold? You can make the neon trend your own by adding a face-framing streak of neon to your hair for a punk-cool ombré look.

Summer's neon makeup trend is no excuse to break out your 1980s fashion stash. You need only small shots of color to light up your look—think of them as a highlighter for your ensemble or for your pretty face. Wanna perk up your complexion in a pinch? Shocking pink give lips a streetwise feel paired with natural eye makeup, while electric blue eye shadow worn as a "color wash" all over the lid (or as eyeliner) punctuate a little black dress to perfect effect. The trick is not to overdo the color: neon clothes dictate minimalist makeup. Find your inspiration from the catwalks at Proenza Schouler and Marc Jacobs where neon-centric fashion took on a cheeky-chic effect.

Neon makeup is hard to pull off. Any brand recommendations for a bright pink lipstick? This model's tone is nice. This comment has been removed.
