Hey everyone!

Here’s presenting the seventh look this month. The weather was gloomy here when I clicked the pics, so I played around with some neon-ish bright colors, and some pigments, and I do like the end result. I have only 2 very bright colors in my palette- a canary yellow and a turquoise of sorts. I bought both these shades for my Cosmopolitan India feature in April 2013. I created neon nail paints with these eyeshadows. You can check out the detailed tutorial on DIY Neon Nail Polish HERE.

Also, some pigments that I have with me have been lying unused in the stash, screaming for attention. So I put everything to use in this one look. Started off just as an experiment, but I loved the end result. Have a look at this neon eye makeup!

Steps and products used:

  1. Apply primer to the upper lid- used Inglot Eye makeup Base 02
  2. Next I applied an yellow eyeshadow to the inner half of the lid- Inglot eyeshadow Matte 370
  3. Then, I applied a turquoise eyeshadow to the outer half- Kryolan eyeshadow Matt UV Blue
  4. I blended both the shades at the centre of the lid, with some turquoise pigment on a fluffy brush (and hence the eye shadows look a little washed out at the center of the lid). If you want, you can go ahead and intensify the yellow and blue eye shadows here. I did not..Like it this way. I used the turquoise pigment from the Faces Sparkle Dust stack- Wish.
  5. Applied a touch of dark blue eyeshadow to the outer corner using a slanted brush- not much! Inglot Freedom System eyeshadow refill- Matte 321.
  6. Apply the same eye shadows to the lower lash line too- dark blue on the outer corner, turquoise blue in the center and yellow in the inner corner.
  7. Line the upper lash line (MAC Fluidline- Blacktrack) and apply kohl to the lower rim (Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate)
  8. Curl lashes and apply mascara.

Done! The steps involved are simple, and you can play with the intensity of colors and the pigment used, as per your comfort. I definitely think you can wear this look to a function safely, ofcourse, with n*de lips and a contoured face.
