Neon makeup can be a terrifying conquest. Those fluorescent fuchsias and lime greens may look gorgeous in their respective pots and tubes, but the second they hit your face, the shades can become not so great.
Well, this summer, it’s time to turn the vivid-makeup game on its head.

Once you’ve got your foundation under control, you can dive right into your brights for an electric daytime look. Stepping out at night? These updated neons transition beautifully for evenings as well. Yes, they’re that versatile!
