Go Neon with MAKE UP FOR EVER
On May 16th as The Makeup Show NYC was wrapping up, I was celebrating the launch of MAKE UP FOREVER's neon colors at Let There Be Neon at 38 White Street, between Broadway and Church. I never thought I would come to embrace the neon makeup trend until I saw all the intense colors and experienced it first-hand, with an exciting makeover by celebrity makeup artist David Hernandez.
I am hooked on two of the products that David used during my makeover - Aqua Liner, $23, (which launched during The Makeup Show NYC) in Diamond Lagoon Green #4 and Rouge Artist Intense lipstick, $19 in Satin Bright Orange #36. I am also dying to try Satin Fuchsia #36. The neon Aqua Liner shades also come in Diamond Turquoise Blue #5, Iridescent Fuchsia #9 and Iridescent Electric Purple #8.
I am all about neon brights this season, including orange, fuchsia, yellow, turquoise, green and purple. Neons can also be found in the following MAKE UP FOREVER must-haves:
- Aqua Eyes, $18 - Majorelle Blue #15L, Turquoise #7L and Pistachio #17L
- Aqua Cream, $22 - Fuchsia #7, Orange #10, Turquoise #21 and Emerald Green #22
- Star Powder, $19 - Green Apple with Gold Highlights #958, Iridescent Fuchsia #951 and Blue with Turquoise Highlights #960
During the Neon event, we were able to create our own custom eye shadow palette. For my palette, I decided to choose Yellow #2, Acid Green #171, Neon Pink #75 and True Blue #167.
You can experience the neon trend and shop MAKE UP FOR EVER products at sephora.com and Sephora stores.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Dany Sanz on how to mix colors together and add a pop of color to your look.
