Neon signs are a classic form of Instagram bait, so it's no surprise that makeup artists and beauty bloggers are making neon sign-inspired makeup the next biggest beauty trend on the 'gram - and, um, it's basically the coolest thing ever.
It turns out that you don't even need UV makeup to make your eyeliner or lipstick look like it's actually glowing - in fact, most makeup artists are achieving the look by using white eyeliner and brightly-colored eyeshadow.
The results are straight-up mesmerizing:
To get the look, you basically start with a bright eyeshadow and liner and blend it outward into the hazy "outline" of your neon before adding a sharp line of white eyeliner on top to create a "bulb." From what we can tell on Insta, it looks like starting with a base of black eyeshadow also boosts the ~glow~ if you're going for something really dramatic.
While it's not necessarily something we'd show up to class in, we are SO here for this - future night out look, anyone?
