Neon Green Eyeshadow Is The Latest Red Carpet Make-Up Trend We Didn’t See Coming

Brighter is better.

One of the more surprising make-up trends to turn up at fashion week, amidst a sea of no make-up make-up and windswept hair, was neon green eyeshadow.

Taking a turn on the runway everywhere from Ashish in London and Prada in Milan, to Jeremy Scott across the pond in New York, super bright rainbow eyeshadow had a major moment for AW18.

Whether 60s Bollywood inspired, dotted with diamanté, or graphic 3D paper eyeliner, the message was clear - eye make-up had gone big, bold and multi-coloured (with a dash of sci-fi thrown in for good measure).

And it seems the A-list are on board as well, with neon eyeshadow hitting the red carpet on no less than two celebs in the same week. Unexpected? Yes. Totally epic? Completely.

Donning statement lime green eyeshadow for the Netflix Rebels And Rulebreakers Panel, Alison Brie upped the ante on her LBD with a punk twist colour pop. The Glow actress captioned an Instagram of the 80s-inspired look, 'Went a little punk rock for today’s REBELS & RULEBREAKERS panel...and I fucking LOVE it!! Full on hair & makeup ART by & *swipe* ➡️!!! 💚💚💚'

Following in Brie's green footsteps was actress Morena Baccarin who rocked a bright emerald eye at this week's Deadpool 2 premiere. Baccarin turned to make-up artist Matin who used Kat Von D products to create the comic book style make-up look.

The key to looking like an AW18 muse rather than The Mask? Keep the colour on your top lids only. Both Brie and Baccarin opted for rounded, one tone colour on their top lid with clean lower lids and no mascara on the lower lashes whatsoever.

Why? Because a lime green smokey eye is not a lewk honey.

Rule number two? Keep the rest of your face fresh and simple. When you're wearing swatches of green paint on your eyelids, bring the contouring down and leave those lips bare. Eyes or lips works for a reason people.
