How To Rock This Season’s Neon Trend MakeUp Fun


Spring 2017 fashion has finally arrived – and it’s all about neon.

The high street has been given a super bright makeover, with an array of hot pinks, lively tangerines, citrus yellows and vibrant violets taking over, and it’s just in time for the sun coming out.

But for those amongst us who’re far more comfortable wearing all black, it’s not exactly a welcome development.

We all know that breaking out of our sartorial comfort zones every now and then is the secret to developing a more robust sense of style.

And yet, transforming from Wednesday Adams chic to head-to-toe fluorescent hottie in one quick move won’t be easy.

So for any LBD addicts who’re finding this season’s neon trend a little hard to swallow, we’re running through three simple and pain-free ways you can start incorporating some color into your wardrobe. Take a look.


#1: a flash of fluorescent fashion

You’re not going to an 80s-themed party so you don’t need to go neon with every single item of clothing you’re wearing. The chic way to rock this trend is to keep it simple and choose only one key shade to play around with.

And you don’t have to brave large blocks of color, either. For a fashion-forward flash of fluorescent, you can’t beat this flattering floral skater dress from AX Paris.

It’s got a hint of vibrant, citrus yellow in its spring-friendly floral pattern but it’s by no means overwhelming. Pair with nude heels, low-key makeup and glossy straight hair for a stylish look perfect for any summer occasion.

#2: graphic nail art

For a nod to the neon trend that works for both the office and a night out with the girls, get creative with some graphic and bright nail art.

Hot Barbie pink is a fail-safe color for nails all year round, whilst aqua greens and blues are great for enhancing your skin’s healthy sun-kissed glow in summer. Just make sure you go for a quality brand, like the neon range from Nails Inc, for a vibrant and shiny finish.

Once you’ve got a color picked, experiment with some fun patterns to add a little more interest to your manicure – I love polka dots and zig zags!


#3: a pop of bright lipstick

Not quite ready to face a fluorescent wardrobe? Ease yourself into a new technicoloured way of dressing by experimenting with the look through your makeup.

From classic pillar box reds to peachy corals and vibrant fuchsias, there are lots of different wearable lipstick shades that’ll let you give the neon trend a try.

To really make the color pop, dab your pout with concealer first and then layer a pigment-rich lipstick on top (MAC’s Dare to Wear range won’t fail you).


What do you think, have I convinced you to give the neon vibe of spring 2017 a go?
