FOTD: Subtle Neon Green

This week I am not posting a nail of the week. The reason? Because I want to try something new, but am not yet sure how it will turn out. So that post will be back next week. Instead, I thought that the eyelook I made a few days ago turned out rather nicely so that will be up today. I just started playing around with some random green eyeshadows and when I had done my lid and crease work I felt there was something missing. I didn’t want to go with any old inner corner highlight and suddenly I remembered having the Sleek Acid palette which includes a bright neon green shadow. I stuck that in my inner corner and I was very happy with the result. So if you are interested in seeing a wearable eye look that does feature neon (THE fashion and make up trend for summer) then keep on reading.

Oh and can I just say: hooray for good lighting?!

And I felt a little cheeky that day! I wore this out to the Marcus Foster concert in Amsterdam on Thursday and let’s just say the pop of green drew quite a bit of attention. I literally saw people do a double take. So even though it is definitely a wearable way to add a pop of neon into your eyelook, depending on where you’re wearing it to, it may be more or less appropriate. I don’t think I’d wear this look to work, but for a fun day out on the town? I say: why not!

How are you wearing neon this summer?
