The Best Bright Makeup Colors

4 Bright, On-Trend Makeup Shades to Try Right Now

We're seeing neon colors dominate the fashion world, but these bright, bold shades aren't limited to clothing. Celebrity makeup artist Brett Freedman (who has also been guest blogging on BellaSugar) recently shared his advice on how to work vivid hues into your makeup routine. But he has a few more things to add: his top favorite shades for getting the look are listed below.

  • Colored mascara: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue ($4). "Apply after your usual mascara, but just to tips," Brett advises. "It's perfect for lunch with friends. In the light, your lashes will get a flash of color."
  • Liquid liner: Wet 'n Wild Mega Liner in Turquoise ($3). "Do you makeup as per usual, and add just the thinnest line along the top of the lashes," Brett explains. "When you blink or look down it's a beautiful surprise!"
  • Gloss: Estée Lauder Lip Gelee in Electric Violet ($20). "Everyone looks amazing in this shade," says Brett. "It's packed with pigment but in a very sheer, wearable formula. Pair it with an all-cream outfit to give it a little edge."
  • Nail polish: OPI in Fly ($9). "If you want to try it without a full commitment," Brett says of this polish from OPI's Nicki Minaj collection, "do it on your toes and see what feedback you get."
