Aside from the previous neon post focusing on fashion we thought we would shine the spotlight towards some of our favorite neon hues you can try for your face!  **Remember** When you wear these bright shades apply a minimal amount.  Pair your neon makeup with neutral tones to balance out your look.  If you want an intense lip, make the rest of your makeup softer and vice versa if you want to concentrate more on your eyes.  Haute Obsessions Beauty Editor Tim Liu came up with some bright ideas for you to try this season.

1. Dior – Vernis – (Acapulco & Calypso): Looking for the perfect polish for that perfect yellow polka-dot bikini? Vernis #118 by Christian Dior is a vibrantly beautiful neon yellow that would compliment any skin tone and would definitely make a statement! This polish also comes in neon pink; every girl needs a perfect pink polish!

2. YSL – Rouge Volupte – (Provocative Pink): Looking for the perfect neon pink? One of my favorite neon picks to sizzle up those sexy lips for the summer is from the YSL Rouge Volupte Collection.  It is a highly pigmented line of lipsticks with high staying and staining power, try these colors and you’ll be addicted!

3. Urban Decay – 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils – (Woodstock and Graffiti):  Neon eyeliner is probably the least dramatic way of wearing neon. A thin line could definitely make your eyes pop! You can also use a smudging brush to smudge the liner on the lower lash line from thick to thin starting at the outer corner of the lash line. For more pop, try dabbing a similar color shadow on top of the liner.

4. Kevyn Aucoin – The Pure Powder Glow – (Myracle): If you’ve got the cheeks, show them off! Kevyn Aucoin’s line of Pure Powder Glow will sure make a statement with your cheeks! Colors from neon pink to bright orange red. My favorite happens to be the neon pink color – Myracle. You can use this color lightly with a stippling brush or a fan brush, or you can make a true fashion statement by packing on the color and blending it with a contour to give your cheeks the ultimate definition!
