Every girl who understands make-up knows the power of the ‘no-make-up’ make-up look. However, There are days (or nights) when we feel the need to defy the rules and add an electrifying hyper-vivid pop of colour to channel our inner ‘bad gal’. Want to do this with very little effort? Neon is the way to go.
Hollywood fashion icon, Rihanna, was the first to clue us in on the upcoming trend when she recently launched three sets of neon coloured eyeliner combos. Since then, we’ve seen celebrities such as Tracee Ellis Ross, Camila Coelho and the Jenner sisters gracing their eyelids with trails of neon in a fierce yet subtle presenting way.
Of course, Flair joined beauty forces with celebrity make-up artist Tonisha Kong (@tonishakong) and Caribbean Model Agency Sway International (@swaymodelsjamaica) to guarantee you your spot at the table when it comes to being ahead in the local beauty game.
“There’s definitely a way to do it,” said Kong. “The trick is to keep the rest of the face fresh and dewy by focusing on the skin and allowing the eyeliner colours to be the only standout element.”
With supersmooth precision and glide application, the look is unquestionably futuristic and can be used when feeling sporty or when tapping into your high-fashion self.
