Feeling intrigued by neon makeup but are clueless as to how to pull it off? 6 Team Zoe staffers tested out the coolest electric hues on the market to show you how to successfully wear this new beauty trend for evening and off-duty outings.
The punchy pink pout has become our secret weapon this season. For daytime wear, team it with a barely-there makeup look—think black mascara only, especially if you're headed to the office. For nighttime wear, we love a neon pout paired with a subtly-cool cateye in black liquid eyeliner.
Kendall Cohan, Product Development Associate
We love the look of lucite sunnies paired with a bright coral lip. Thoughts?
Sarah Aguas, Brand Integration Director
Create a cool, effortless combo by juxtaposing the striking nature of neon gloss with an easy chambray shirt.
The best way to embrace the blues is to incorporate it into your eye makeup, especially if you're still feeling out the neon trend. For daytime wear, we adore a subtle hint of cobalt incorporated into our beauty looks via colored mascara, which looks gorj teamed with a bold red-orange lip. If you're feeling daring, try a striking cateye in a cyan shade for an edgy effect.
Jennifer Ash, Editorial Assistant
Create major contrast by complementing cobalt-coated lashes with a red-orange lip.
Christian David, Graphic Designer
For an on-trend alternative to the traditional black cateye, reach for a cyan-colored liner instead! It looks best with minimalist makeup.
Whether worn on your nails (a popular trend at RZ HQ) or loaded up on top of your lashes, popping purples are a foolproof choice for mastering neon makeup, especially if you're feeling extra hesitant to try it out.
Nadia Beeman, Styling Intern
Nadia owns the neon makeup trend by wearing Dior's purple mascara with a pinkish purple lipstick. Love!
Shannon Nash, Fashion & Beauty Editor
If you're hesitant to dive right into the trend, start slow with a bright manicure—this purple polish by Deborah Lippmann has been a major hit at our offices.
