Neon colored makeup reigned gloriously on the Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear runways as one of the most notable makeup trends for Spring/Summer 2011. Christian Dior models donned crave-worthy eye shadows in shades of tangerine orange, lemon lime, and bold, mint green. Over at Diane von Furstenberg, models were dolled up in a pink lip so hot that even Barbie would languish with envy. Vivienne Westwood took the trend to the next level by saturating some of her models’ cheeks with the most marvelous shade of yellow – an absolute must see!
Ultimately fun and fearless, this makeup trend can be worn throughout the summer, and here at Faction, we’ve taken note. For our August issue, we’ll be expressing our love for the colorful trend by shooting some of our models in our own neon interpretation. This summer-loving editorial is going to be all about color, and we hope that all of you can make it out to our release party on August 25 to see the spread for yourselves! Also, feel free to master your neon makeup artistry skills before the event, so you can show off your bold look at the party!
