Make a statement with bright, eye-popping colors
The year so far has been a riot of tousled locks and hairbands, thigh grazing slits, bold floral prints and eye popping brilliant eye, lip and nail color. The brighter the better; from emerald green and peacock blue to tangerine orange and ruby red.

The dazzling theme spilled over from clothes and accessories to makeup with a resurgence in the pop neon hues of the ’80s; fun, youthful shades of candy floss and bubble gum, lime green and electric blue wherever you look. It’s a trend that fast catching on with international makeup maestros like Chanel and Bobbi Brown churning out bright, bold shades.

Endless choices
There are endless neon sartorial and makeup choices; shoes, bags, jeans, pumps, dresses, even jewellery and makeup options. If you’re unsure about whether or not you should jump on the neon bandwagon, play it safe by starting with a small item of clothing or accessory.

If you’re feeling particularly daring, jazz up your evening look with a brilliant eye or lip color.
For maximum impact keep makeup nude with just one dazzling neon element. While neon makeup can add sparkle and oomph, it’s not for the faint hearted. A little goes a long way, and a heavy hand could make you look like you’re auditioning for a Ramsay production.

Lip color
For the uninitiated, it’s safest to light up your look with a bolder, vivid lip color. Juicy, yummy shades look divine and grab attention like nothing else does. Go the whole hog or a bright shade in a sheer formula. Try shades of neon pink and tangerine orange and finish up with a citrusy lip gloss. I love the Lakme Lip Love from lakme products and Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Polish lipstick ranges.

Don’t get put off by the intensity and sparkle of neon lip gloss, it looks translucent when applied. Keep the rest of your look nude and matte. Let your eyes remain understated with just a smidgen of mascaraand either no or pale eye shadow. Dust on some bronzer or cream gel blush to add a hint of color.

Bold eyeliners
Once you’re emboldened enough to experiment with eye color, think of bold eyeliners to accentuate your peepers. Try Lakme Eyeconic  range of eyeliners. Green works brilliantly with brown, beige and gold eye shadow and looks great on dark eyes. If you want a more dramatic look, use royal purple or electric blue on well-primed eyelids. Then outline your eye shape and apply bold mascara like Maybelline Falsies Mascara to lashes.

If you’re feeling extra adventurous add a thicker line of the same neon shade to the lower lid. Just balance the look by keeping the rest of your face nude and understated and use a nude lip shade to balance your dazzling eyes. Add some Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Eyeshadows and you’re ready to walk out shinning bright like a diamond!
Don’t let the torrential downpour stop you from looking bright and beautiful!
