Neon Makeup Everywhere! My top 5 Instagram Looks for Inspiration

Neon makeup is blowing up on Instagram!
 
It seems that every two weeks or so, some new trend violently emerges from Instagram to be the next “big” thing. This week it’s neon makeup and, I gotta say, I’m sure there’s no Photoshop trickery going on, but it all looks so cray cray.
 
Once reserved for calling attention to “a certain colored” light districts. it’s now gracing the faces of the top makeup artists of Instagram.

Now that we’re all inspired up, who’s ready to put this on their face?
