Instagram's neon eyeliner trend will make you feel like the star of an '80s music video
Put down your black or brown pencils, because the neon eyeliner trend that is taking over Instagram will have you feeling like you’re living on video in the heyday of MTV. Neon is no new thing, but these pops of color are definitely giving the basic cat-eye fresh feels. With the advent of palettes like Kat Von D’s Pastel Goth and Urban Decay’s Electric Pressed Pigment, it has never been easier to find a bright color that speaks to you.
In addition to using bright shadows with a fine line brush, many companies are now also producing neon liquid liners. NYX Cosmetics, Urban Decay, and MakeupGeek all have bright liners. Marc Jacobs Beauty came out with a brand-new collection featuring electrifying liners. Also, a white liner on top of everything creates a magical neon glow. We love the NYX eye pencil in Milk for this!
Makeup artist Marion Moretti is totally slaying the neon eyeliner trend, and making it totally extra with matching neon lips!
This blue neon eye lewk is straight out of Tron. We are sure Olivia Wilde would approve
The neon liner is not as hard as it looks. If you were struggling with candy cane liner and are still trying to get your wings to match, worry not! Kristen Leanne from Arctic Fox actually did an entire tutorial on how you can achieve neon perfection for yourself.
We can’t wait to try this out at the next ’80s club night or date to the barcade!
