When summer hit the northern hemisphere this trend took Instagram by storm, and now that the warmer months are approaching we think it's time we rocked this trend here on the south side of the world... or at the very least appreciated the artistry of it.
At first glance neon liner looks a little out there, a little scary even, but it's a look that was made for sultry nights and festival-filled days! Check out these amazing neon liner looks...
This look from Kaitlynn_mua reminds us of sunshine at the end of the day. The sky emblazoned by the sun as it dips behind the horizon. We also love that it looks like something we could attempt without making a hash out of it. And that wing... Wow.
Who knew a smokey neon eye could be a thing? Or look so darn beautiful? Not I! This look from fiorelladichio is to die for. It was made for a night out dancing into the early hours with your girls.
Rainbow. Neon. Eyeliner. If I were a makeup wearing unicorn this is how I would do my eyeliner. Every single day. The contrast between the black shadow, the black wing and the colour is sublime.
I'm going to call it and say that chlooe_hearts is the queen of neon eyeliner. Heck, she may well be the queen of eye looks. Seriously, go to her Instagram NOW. I scrolled through it with my eyes widening with every image. She has imagination, skill and so much talent.
Now I could try and explain how to achieve this look, but some trends are better seen to be understood. Check out this fabulous tutorial from YouTuber Kristen Leanne.
Makeup look aside. Can we talk about her hair? It's so beautiful! I think I spent as much time staring at her hair as I did her tutorial. And I especially loved how when something didn't go quite right she was up front about it and started again to create a better result. New. Fav. YouTuber.
Obviously neon eyeliner isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea. It's bold. it's bright. It takes a bold soul to rock it. Are you that bold soul? Can you see yourself attempting one of these looks, or a variation of? Or will you be keeping things a little more muted? Chat away...
