Neon Trend 2012 & Recommendations


Hi Girls,

How are you doing ? Still reeling under the winter blues. The worst thing that winters do to me is give me a red nose instead of red cheeks. (Sigh) God can be funny. Isn’t it ? Anyways, to kill those winter blues, all you need do is add a pop of bright fluro colours to your clothes, accessories or just makeup. Yes, I am talking about neon fashion here, rather neon lips.  It is one of the hottest trends this season that is ruling the runways and of course Hollywood. Bollywood is not far behind. If you have not noticed it yet, then you must be living in some cave! Before the neon storm which took over Bollywood and Hollywood, neon colours were just those glow-in-the-dark colors which looked good ummm…..almost nowhere. But all that changed when neon came knocking in the world of fashion and makeup. Neon fashion is all about colours which can blind you with that sudden burst of bold and loud colors. Florescent green, fiery orange, lime yellow, tomato red, fuchsia pinks, shocking pinks and the list can go on. You can neon to any part of your look and stand out in the crowd.

The biggest neon trend – LIPS. Neon lips were one of the hottest makeup trends for 2011 and still are. neon lips colors like watermelon pink, bright orange, fuchsia, coral, hot pink, and chilli red are all hot for summer. Need courage to wear such colours ? Start off with muted colours or apply a neon colour and tone it down with lighter lipcolor or gloss. When you are comfortable, just apply that hot pink lipstick and you are done. Neon lip colors are going to suit your skin tone, even though you are a dusky beauty or a snow white. Just look at the pictures below. You can even choose from glosses to lipsticks to lip stains and be a part of the neon brigade.

Neon Makeup Suggestions

During one of my hit and try online shopping, I bought Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Plum Perfect, thinking it to be a plumy shade, but it turned out to be a nice blue based fuschia kind of pink, perfect for first timers. Revlon colorburst lipgloss in aubergine and papaya are such muted neon glosses. Another shade would be chambor powder matte lipstick in coral reef. It’s not really a neon lipstick but look kind of bright pinkish red on fair skinned girls. Just apply with a nice lip brush to banish those fine lip lines, if you have any.

I have so many. These shades work great for fair skin tones. I can say because I tried myself and loving it. These are my baby steps to NEONHOOD. But I am sure they will suit equally to all dusky beauties too. Do pour in your suggestions about which neon shades work for you.

We will get more neony with bags, shoes, nail colors, maybe neon hair highlights ? Anyone
