Sizzling Summer Brights

 

 

The biggest trend in Europe this summer? Everybody is matching or clashing their neon lips with neon nails!

 

To make this look work, the key is to keep the eyes as natural as possible – almost no eye makeup, only a touch of mascara if anything. The skin also has to be flawless, so a good tinted moisturizer and concealer is essential.

For a trendy look, go for a matte finish. You can use any lipstick you already own – just add a thin layer of powder on top to mattify.

 

Tints or stains are also amazing for this look – try layering a stain under a lipstick for the ultimate colour saturation.

 

Try mixing two tones for an ombre look. I love a fuchsia & hot pink together – so unexpected but fresh.

 

 

To really pop a neon lip, I like to apply a touch of concealer or colour-neutralizing primer all over lips before applying a bright shade. This really helps to show the true shade of the lip colour you are applying, rather than it competing with your natural lip colour.

Personally, I love to match nails and lips :) Here I am in one of my favorite shades this summer. It’s a real rose, not neon bright – but bright enough for a lift – and very wearable for both work and for play!

As I have olive-toned skin, a blue-based rose, fuchsia, or pink always seems to work best on me, but play around to find YOUR best shades! The best part about these bright summertime colours is that they are the opposite of fussy – they have such an impact that they look great without much effort at all!
