Neon effect makeup rules

The wave of love for neon makeup does not subside even with the arrival of cold weather. On the contrary, luminous arrows and lip contours can make autumn and winter unusually bright. In our latitudes, this can only be encouraged.


Neon makeup as a trend started with lips. Looking at photos on social networks, you might think that it is difficult to achieve such an effect. In fact, everything is simple. White eyeliner is responsible for the fluorescent effect: it does not glow in the dark, but in the light it looks like neon.A white pencil is not suitable in this case, as it does not give the desired pigment saturation.


Hot pinks, blues or yellows in eye makeup look neon. They look enchanting when combined with black arrows. Acid colors of eyeliner and shadow can be used as the only accent on the eyes. They will look most impressive if you draw graphic lines with them in the folds of the upper eyelids and along the lower ones. Another good option for neon eye makeup is a combination of bright eyeliner and sparkles of the same shade.
