Shrinking violets, it's going to be a tough season ahead.
Neon makeup is moving from the runways into the mainstream. Here, five ways to wear bold shades on your eyes, without looking like an extra from a Cyndi Lauper video:
Shu Uemura's acidic orange and yellow Tri Color Eye Pencils are so soft and chubby, they beg to be scrawled on with abandon.
M.A.C Eye Shadow in Chrome Yellow, used at Derek Lam's spring show, looks edgy when washed over lids. Pair it with a pink lip color so you don't look jaundiced.
Pop Beauty's Lid Neon looks like a tray of Crayola watercolors, and the high-voltage shades are probably just as fun to experiment with. Plus, isn't this palette just fun to LOOK at?
Make Up For Ever Flash Color: Cream = Control. Use these colors to paint a zip of color across your lash line.
Vincent Longo Vibrant Eye Waterproof Mascara comes in crazy colors like red and yellow, along with turquoise and jade. Wear them with minimal makeup to avoid neon overkill. Never a good way to go.
