Neons & Nudes

Posted by Samantha on Thu, 04/11/2013 - 6:46 PM

Just noticing the extreme color palettes lining beauty store shelves? You’re not the only one, but instead of wondering who would buy them – shift your focus, how can I work those crazy shades into my routine? The answer is simple, by pairing the bold neon tones with simple nudes.

Add emphasis to your eyes by using a liner with a lot of color – we like MAC’s Mega Metal Eye Shadow in lucky green. Let the liner stand out by pairing it with a more neutral shimmer all over your lid, like the light Suivez Mon Reagrd Intense Shimmer Eyeshadow by Bourjois in Regard Sable Nacre.

Don’t want to emphasize your eyes? Go for a bold lip instead with a neon orange or pink color. The Korres Lip Butter in Mango has a sweet taste with the perfect amount of intensity. Once you’ve swiped on the chic color, pair it with other basic elements to keep your look natural. Opt for a traditional matte foundation, but to add dimension try Edward BessAll Over Seduction Cream Highlighter. This product will help keep the finished look bright, but natural.
