When the clouds roll away and the sun is hot on your skin, you know summer is well and truly here. There is something about summer that makes us want to sip cocktails, wear our brightest clothes and experiment with vibrant coloured makeup. One summer makeup trend that maybe seems more intimidating that others is neon makeup. Punchy pinks, electric oranges and fluorescent yellows may not cross your mind the whole year round, but when summer hits you may find yourself reaching for them more often than not.

So, what do you do if you love the idea of neon makeup but don’t know how to wear it? Read on to see 5 ways you can nail neon in your beauty look…

Nails

The most effortless way to make a subtle neon statement is with your nails. We adore a slick of the Nails Inc Glamingo across our fingertips to create a detail which will turn heads and make us feel like a million pounds. The fool-proof formula of the Nails Inc polishes make for an extremely full coverage finish which won’t chip.

Lip Paint

All eye will be on you when you wear a neon lip colour. Whatever your skin tone, bright lipsticks suit so many complexions so don’t be afraid to step outside the box and try something new. The Inc.redible Listen Hard Girl lip paints are the perfect choice if you’re searching for a neon lip paint to fall in love with..

Holographic Highlighter

Take your popping glow to the next level with a neon coloured highlighter. We can’t stop using the Inc.redible You Glow Girl highlighting jelly and tapping it onto our cheekbones, down our nose and cupids bow to add an iridescent hue to our illumination.

Neon Lip Contour

If a block lip colour wasn’t enough of a statement for you, take it to the next level with a neon lip contour. After applying your lipstick of choice, take the Inc.redible You Glow Girl highlighting jelly and tap it onto the centre of your top and bottom lips, rubbing your lips together to seamlessly blend it. Your lips will look fuller and fancier instantly!

Cream Eyeshadow

It’s easy to create a gaze-stealing gaze with the help of the Inc.redible You Glow Girl highlighting jelly. This multi-purpose cream is the perfect texture for gliding across your eyelids for a glossy, holographic eye look that is simple to create yet very impactful!

The Urban Decay Beached Collection has landed and it’s giving us the ultimate summer makeup vibes. Forget smouldering, dark as winter eyeliner – during the months of summer we can’t get enough of bright lips matched with equally bright eyes to light up our look.

The beautiful collection is currently exclusive to Debenhams both in store and online, so be sure to stock up now to get ahead of the beauty game!

We hate to have favourites, but the stand out piece of the collection HAS to be the Beached Eyeshadow Palette. Containing 8 absolutely stunning eyeshadows, this eyeshadow palette is set to make it the summer of colour. Containing satin, matte and metallic shadows, the variety of finishes allows the possibilities with this palette to be endless. We can’t get enough of Double Dip, the bright metallic teal, and Heatwave, a mesmerising metallic rust shade.

The collection has also seen the release of three Limited Edition Beached Vice lipsticks. 100 Degrees, Heatwave and Tower 1 are everything you’d want and more from a summer lipstick. 100 Degrees is a stunning bright coral which is guaranteed to make your poolside tan absolutely pop. Heatwave is a unique metallic rust which we envision ourselves reaching for en route to the beach bar and Tower 1 is a beautiful soft, metallic peach; the holographic finish gives an Urban Decay twist to the classic peach lippy.

The best part? All of these lipsticks are lavishly long-lasting to withstand the summer heat meaning you can sip cocktails without a single care in the world!

On the 19th May, the world witnessed the Royal Wedding of Meghan Markle and Princes Harry. It was undoubtedly the event of the year and although many of the guests looked absolutely breathtaking (Amal Clooney, we’re looking at you!), Meghan stole the show.

Her minimalist, long sleeved Givenchy dress had a flattering bardot neckline, with Meghan’s crisp, clean ensemble topped with an extravagant, glistening jewelled tiara. Meghan’s wedding day makeup was also minimalist and chic for the day. Her freckles peeped through her foundation which flaunted her naturally flawless complexion and her brown eyes were framed with a delicate, smokey eyeshadow look.

The good news for everyone lusting over Meghan’s makeup look, is that it is extremely easy to recreate. Read on to see the products we recommend for stealing Meghan’s big day beauty…

EYES

Meghan’s eyes looked absolutely sparkling throughout the day. They were smoked with a neutral brown eyeshadow on her top eyelid, which was surrounded by fluttering, dainty eyelashes. We would reach for the Too Faced Natural Eyes eyeshadow palette to recreate this gorgeous look, fanning our lashes out with the Benefit They’re Real! Mascara. If like Meghan you want to get that wide-eyed look, leave your bottom lash line free from any eyeshadow to show off the natural length of your lashes.

LIPS

We absolutely adored the beautiful and elegant soft pink of Meghan’s lips. The natural, “your lips but better” shade couldn’t of been more perfectly suited with her skin tone, dress and the rest of the makeup look. During a big day, a lipstick that is as comfortable as it is long wearing is a must. We recommend the bareMinerals Gen Nude radiant lipstick and to make your lipstick last even longer and prevent bleeding, apply a layer of lip liner like the Bobbi Brown Lip Pencil underneath your lipstick.

FACE

We all know that one of Meghan’s favourite foundations is the Armani Luminous Silk, and there’s little surprise that it gives the same sheer but radiant finish as her wedding day complexion. Forget Kim K contouring, Meghan sported a super soft contour which subtly warmed up her complexion and accentuated her bone structure. To mirror Meghan’s glow, use the lightweight and buildable Dior Backstage Contour palette (available summer 2018) and dust across the hollows of your cheeks and gently down the sides of your nose.
