How to make neon make-up

Obviously yes, but only if you want to create an alternative photo book or some more particular shots to keep at home or to show to friends.

In everyday life, however, neon make-up can be easily adapted to your “more normal” needs. Like? By dedicating an area to it specific of the face to be enhanced with fluorescent colors and a luminous effect. For instance:

  • if you want to embellish your eyes, colors like the are perfect lemon yellow, lime green or fluorescent pink, to be applied with a colored eyeliner or with a double line (in addition to the traditional one of the pencil), both above and in the inner part of the eye. But also by blurring the fluorescent eyeshadows on the eyelids, mixing different nuances together;
