Beauty Trend: Neon Colors

The neon trend has been making a comeback over the past few years, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere soon. From 80’s inspired, bright colored leggings to pops of fuschia lipstick, these bright colors are making their way into makeup palettes and staying there.

Spring showed off colorful streaks of shadows on the runway from LAMB to Balenciaga, and fall collections continued on with the trend. From runway to real life, it looks like this punk rock, rainbow palette will be hanging on for at least a few more seasons.

Silver and fuschia never looked so perfect on a pretty face, although we would expect nothing less from Chanel (left). Neon stripes on dreadlocks may not be a wearable trend, but it was sure unexpected and entertaining coming from Giorgio Armani (right).

Not for the timid, these neon shadows and glosses will certainly make a colorful splash next season. For real life, try a softer approach such as a colorful lip stain, unless you plan on going to a punk concert.
