Beauty Brights

Beauty Brights

We’re not sure why but somehow bright beauty always feels right in summer. There’s a specific trick to rocking it though – keep it simple. Well, as simple as neon can be! Keep the rest of your makeup look minimal and clean and let the colour pop do its righteous thing. We’re planning to pair our brights with wardrobe staples such as denim shirts, white t-shirts and all-black ensembles, mixed up with some statement jewellery. Oh, and just one at a time now – a little neon goes a long way!

Here’s our favourite shades to strike out in…

1. MAC Neon Orange lipstick, €18

2. Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Endless Purple, €7.49.

3. Stila Countless Colour Pigment in Light Show, €18.50

4. NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eye Liner in Abbey Road, €25

5. American Apparel Neon Green nail polish, €11

6. Maybelline Colour Show nail polish in Electric Yellow, €4.55
