Your Guide to Nail the Bold, Bright Makeup Flawlessly
By Sakshi Tejpaul
The prevailing pandemic has tended to bring more focus on eye makeup with the face mask on –everyone is looking for exciting ways to add bright colors into their regular beauty routine that looks fresh. And the neon makeup trend fits the bill!
The return of the 90’s is another culprit to make this trend popular. We all know that the 90’s were the ultimate neon decade.
In 2021, the beauty blogosphere is already celebrating the neon spring makeup trend. Whether it’s the YouTube makeup artists or Instagram beauty influencers, the minimal makeup with a focus on skin and a pop of neon color is trending on everyone’s timeline.
Here’s how you can create this trending look with perfection.
Nail the Neon –the trending Spring Makeup Look for 2021
The Neon Eye Makeup
Start by priming your eyelids with a neutral eye base. We recommend Soft Ochre by MAC cosmetics. It has an excellent nude shade that helps to pop your neon up. After blending your base to perfection, set it with MAC Eyeshadow Brule. Now you have a flawless canvas for that graphic neon eyeliner.
Before drawing your neon wing liner, it’s good to curl up your lashes first. This will enhance your eye shape and prevents you from messing up the masterpiece.
After completing all the eye makeup rituals, it’s time to bring out your inner artist and draw that bright bold wing. We recommend the immensely pigmented SUVA cosmetic Hydraliners that has an excellent color payoff.
Start by spraying water or makeup fixer on your liner brush and then dip it in the color you want to work with. Drag the brush across your lash line and pull it out from the corner of your eyes to create a perfect wing. Fill in empty spaces and voila!
For a crisp look, use Q-tips dipped in some water-based makeup remover to achieve those sharp edges and clear any mess around. Complete your eye makeup with multiple coats of mascara. Feel free to experiment with colored mascaras –that’ll compliment your neon eyeliner prominently.
The Natural-looking Face
Use a light-weight buildable foundation to achieve a subtle no-makeup look. We recommend NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation that blends in with your skin without looking cakey. Fix it up with some loose powder specifically in those areas where you get more sebum.
For a flushed look, use a peach-hued blush on the apples of your cheeks. Lightly add some bronzer to define your facial features.
Add Nude Lips to this Look
We recommend soft pink or nude lips to compliment your neon eye makeup. . Define your lips with a brown lip pencil and then fill it up with soft creamy or matter color. Our pick is Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick that goes best with all types of skin.
The nineties-inspired makeup looks are here to stay. As demonstrated by the celebrities like Rihanna, Kendal Jenner, Selena Gomez, Gigi Hadid –this trend is getting hype in no time. The spring/summer 2021 fashion week runways are all showcased with a pop of neon on models’ faces. Whether you do an electric blue eye or create a diffused fuchsia lip look –this trend is all about standing out in a crowd.
