Bring on the Bright! Neon Is So Hot Right Now!

Winter, why you so gloomy? As much as we enjoy snuggling up in cosy layers of clothing and having an excuse to drink marshmallow-heavy hot chocolates, we do miss the eye-aching brightness of sunshine and the flippy frocks in joy-inducing shades that the warmer months bring. Lucky for us, there's a trend that's so hot right now even on the coldest days we feel a warm glow just looking at it.

Helloooooooo NEON.

Yes, neon is popping up left, right and centre on The Gram, with makeup artists and makeup lovers having plenty of fun with the bold, brilliant shades. It's not just one part of the bod that's getting the neon treatment either. No, if it can be coloured in, it's getting neoned. Check this inspo out! 


This work of art from Swayze makes us want to say 'no' to neutrals and give neon the nod of approval! She is seriously talented - and if you want more neon (and eyeshadow looks) inspo then her Insta page is a must!


We love his look from courtgannhair. You know who we think would rock it? She who already rocks the neon -none other than fabulous BR member Shazatron101! Check out her gorg neon hair here.


From the lips to her lids, the NYX UK Face Award Winner of 2017 Heather Moorhouse has neon well and truly sorted! Also, that glittery sparkle addition? Yes. If you're going to go big, you may as well go massive.


Sure, neon's perhaps not for the shy and retiring among us, but that doesn't mean we can't at least give it a try! We are loving the pop of neon halo that Jade Thompson has created, and the neon lips are totally wearable! 


And if neon on your face is too much to consider, then check out neon nails! Check out this fabulous ombre neon nail from pandanails&lashes. Subtle yet sensational all at the same time! 

So is neon your jam? Is it something you're willing to try? Or will you be sticking to the land of neutrals? Chat away!

Hmmmm while it can look cool it's just not for me, perhaps my nails is as far as I would go :-)

A bit much for someone of my age. I love the look of Jadet though!

neon is THE BEST im glad its here!

Really looks nice when I see it on other people but neon doesn't match well with my skin tone sadly.

I feel the same. Other colors are more flattering on me although I like a fuschia lip paired with a neutral makeup look, that's about as far as I go.

Same! Looks too garish on me.

I love these colours for nails . I’d be keen to give a neoneye look a try one day soon. Just need the colours.

Love the neon ombre nails! I love neon colours on my nails - the rest is a little too much for me!

The top picture is very creative would look fantastic in a fashion show. Sometimes I wear a bright nail polish on my toes but at my age that's as far as I'd go. They do look fun.

Love the nail polish but will leave the rest for the young ones

I do love a bit of colour but not too out there on me personally. The nails and jadet are pretty and probably would be my limit for some neon. Some people could get away with much more but I'm not too daring... a funky nail colour is plenty for me.

I love my neutrals although I really love pairing a neutral makeup look with a hot pink, fuschia lip. Not into neon nails either, the tiniest chip can be seen from meters away so not practical for me.

I would definitely try the neon nails!! But I think I’ll stick to less radical inspos for my hair and makeup - although these looks work on the models pictured and look very cool on them! Head-turning for sure! Wow!!

I love wearing my neon pink and blue eyeshadows. So yes I'm already onboard.

I like some degree of neon, like nail polish and some clothing items! Can add such a fun pop of colour.

LOVE bright colours perfect for winter

I LOVE those neon lips - I want!!!
