Summer is giving us the bright sunshine. Why not bring a little “brightness” of your own by adding a jolt of color into your wardrobe? Celebrities, like Rihanna and Leona Lewis, have been spotted wearing day-glo colors on everything from megawatt minis to fluorescent lips and fingertips. Here’s how to get your fix out of the electric trend by being fresh and chic, but not overwhelming.       –mckenzie harris










Highlighter Hue Rules

 

 

Kat Graham

Makeup

Pick one color and go for it, while remembering to keep the rest of your makeup simple, or you risk it clashing against each other. Think vibrant lips or shocking blue lids!









 

 

Rihanna

Nails

Bright hues really compliment skin tones with color. If wearing neon shades isn’t office appropriate, try it on your toes instead or opt for sporting bright colors only on weekends.









 

 

Leona Lewis

Fashion and Accessories

Ultrabright and ultrachic hues have gone high-fashion. Flashes of neon give a boost to a white ensemble or other monochromatic look. Try a pair of color-boosting platform heels or sandals, or go bold with an attention-grabbing dress or blazer. Remember when mixing bright colors together, make sure you add a neutral tone to the mix, such as white, black, grey or beige.
