Neon Makeup Colors!

We know trends come in and out, so neon colors being in trend shouldn’t bring up a “why” question but rather is just a cycle of fashion that’s been back for a bit.

Really the only “neon” color/s that exist are red-orange and the rest are fluorescent, but somewhere down the line we started calling them all neon colors. We all know color is how we perceive color reflecting off of the object. Fluorescent colors use a larger amount of both the visible spectrum and the lower wavelengths compared to conventional colors. They not only absorb and convert light energy of the dominant wavelength, but also the wavelengths of ultraviolet rays and other colors lower in the visible spectrum. As a result, your eye perceives a far more intense color.

In the somewhat creepy mesh of lips that I put together above we have “neon” lipstick in orange, green and blue. These are “in” and though I personally don’t wear them I have seen people out there who do. (PS. They have a promo code, which I’m sure is ending soon KAOIR4TH; in case you’re interested).┬áKA`OIR’s whole makeup line is made up of tons of fun colors and it’s very on trend. Trends in colors aren’t only in makeup or clothes, but both combined as well as in furniture and decor. I’m sure you’ve seen girls dressed in pants the colors of the lipsticks, I have pants in the fun blue myself! haha

Here is a different brand with very bright eye shadows, that keep in the theme of bright neon makeup. Lime Crime is known for having bright highly pigmented makeup. I think it looks great! If I wasn’t on a budget I would have stocked up long ago. I think the colors are amazing, they match everyone’s current closet and are fun colors to wear.
