Neon Lips Makeup Trend: Choose the Colors You Love

Neon Lips Makeup Trend: Moisturize Your Pout

A rule of thumb when it comes to neon lipstick, is to moisturize your pout first. Obviously, it applies solely to neon matte lipsticks that tend to dry your precious lips and make you feel uneasy.

Besides, it is highly important to moisturize your lips before putting on a neon lipstick because the bright hue will put emphasis on every small detail of your pout… and you probably aim for sensual lips and not for a cracked, peeling disaster.You might also like: How to Wear Neon Colors

Lip balms will do the trick when it comes to lip moisturizing prior to neon lipstick application. A Darphin Age-Defying Lip Balm might be a good choice, thanks to its all-day hydration properties.

Neon Lips Makeup Trend: Keep It Simple

It’s not a must, but if you’re not used to wearing neon lipstick, you should keep the rest of your makeup simple. Neon lips look amazing when paired with sheer foundation, a hint of blush and delicate mascara.

If you feel more adventurous, then you may also go for neon makeup such as vibrant eye shadows (POP Beauty Lid Neon provides the expected results) or electric eye liners. Just make sure you avoid the 80s clowny look!
