One of the most attention-grabbing trends taking hold this summer is the presence of neon colors. While hot pinks, lime greens, aqua blues and bright yellows are making strides in the fashion world, they’re also becoming more prevalent in makeup – especially for lips.
The trend of bright lipstick may have started earlier this year, but it’s beginning to gain popularity with celebrities and the general public. You can easily try out this fad by investing in a neon lipstick. After you treat your lips to your favorite lip serum or repairing balm, outline them with a lip liner and smudge the pencil marks. Then you can fill in the rest with your chosen neon color for a look that is sure to turn heads.
Opting for long-lasting lipsticks or ones with a matte finish can go a long way in creating a polished end result.
A good tip to keep in mind is that these neon lip colors generally work best with nude makeup, so as not to overpower the face. You may also want to carefully pick out an outfit to go along with the neon color, with neutrals being the best option for creating balance in a look.
