Spunk up your look with neons

Such a fun, bold way to inject color to your looks.
Florescent makeup is back! Summertime demands bright, happy colors and if you’re not ready to invest in a neon wardrobe, you could inject a flash of color into your getup with neon makeup. For the more conservative among us, neon makeup may sound scary but if you were to combine a pop of color on the eyes or lips with a nude, matte face, you can create a modern, striking look. Combining bolder looks with subtler ones is the key. Try bright lips with a pastel dress, or a neon cat eye with a dark blazer and crisp slacks for instant glam. Just remember to keep your hairstyle simple. A classic ponytail or bun sweeps hair back drawing attention to your face. Neon nails are particularly big right now. Eye popping hues, designs, and embellishments are now all par for the course. Here are some useful tips for wearing neon colors with confidence.
Keep it simple
The key to wearing bright neons is to keep one element the focus of the look. So if you’re going bold on the lips, keep your eyes, nails and outfit understated and let your bright pout take centre stage. Similarly if you’re wearing a bright eye shadow or a statement liner, keep the lips neutral with a nude lipstick or dusty peach gloss.
Eye catching nails
If you feel too self-conscious about wearing a bold color on your face, simply add a touch of instant glamor to your nails instead. Bright colors and bleached neons are perfect for summer and take your look up a notch effortlessly. You could either go for a hot tropical hue like orange, coral or hot pink, or opt for a cool pastel blue, green or lavender.
Choose a sheer hue on nails and lips
Opaque brights can be a little too much for some. But fret not, you too can carry off a colourful look by opting for a sheerer texture that instantly makes the color more wearable! Sheer tangerine or sheer hot berry pink lip or nail colors work beautifully with Indian complexions.
Accessorize with neons
Another great way to sport neons is by way of accessories. If you’re wearing a neutral outfit, a fluorescent bag or jewellery or even footwear can instantly add a quirky element to your style. Once again make sure that there aren’t too many competing elements in the look. If you’ve chosen a neon bag, keep the rest of the look toned down and stick to blacks and whites or beige.
