Neon make-up is the unexpected winter beauty trend

How a summer trend can turn into the go-to look for the upcoming holidays

Neon make-up is the unexpected winter beauty trend How a summer trend can turn into the go-to look for the upcoming holidays

Forget the no-makeup makeup, at least for the upcoming holidays. Parties, family dinners and friends gatherings can become the perfect moment to experiment with looks and make-up, playing with textures and, above all, with colour, including neon shades. If you think it's an only a summer trend, you're wrong. From the mod version of Anna Sui to the pop version of Carolina Herrera, from the lines of Chromat to the glitters of Valentino and Rodarte, green, fuchsia, orange, electric blue, yellow, purple are back as protagonists, powerful allies to give the eye a daring, fierce and hyper-cool twist.

Dior Men's Fall 2020 fashion show introduced bold makeup for men as well. For the occasion, makeup artist Peter Philips created a lime green stripe on the eyes of the models with an unexpected effect that recalled Blade Runner. How to get it? Spreading Dior's Face & Body Primer and Foundation before spraying the pigment with the Temptu Perfect Canvas Airbrush. 

Just look at our Instagram feeds to see that smokey eyes now have a highlighter effect. Playing with pigments, eyeshadows, eyeliners and pencils is irresistible. There are many ways to experiment: drawing real blocks of colour with perfect contours, which emphasize the natural size of the eye; drawing geometric graphics; spraying the colour for a wild effect; trying bold revisitation of cat-eye; colouring the lids in two different shades or choose a shade for the lid and another for the lower rhyme of the eye; choose to give only a rainbow past of mascara,...

Among the celebrities, the first to fall in love with this type of vibrant make-up was Bella Hadid with a monochromatic phosphorescent yellow look: neon nails matching the Dior suit jacket and trousers. Many of them have decided to follow the model's example, such as Rihanna, Camila Mendes, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Margot Robbie and Lucy Boynton who, with the help of @missjobaker, has become one of the it-girls to follow when we talk about make-up, as well as the cast of Euphoria

Our advice is to leave your lips more natural and maybe go for a multicolored manicure that reflects the shades used for the eyes or with dark polishes in contrast.
