Guest Post: An Eye Look Featuring NEON!

Hello, I'm Sarah from Workaday Ramblings. Amy was kind enough to let me take over today and share a neon look today as part of the Canadian Beauty Blogger guest post series. 

I was looking to do a neon nail art look, since I've been really into those lately, but with eyeshadow in Amy's blog name, I obviously had to change my plan and do a neon eye look instead.

Neon eyeshadow isn't something you'll find on most drugstore shelves, so I went with an indie brand: Sarah's Naturals. I used two shadows, Lemon Lime and Lime.

I started with a white base using Essence Stays No Matter What Jumbo Eye Pencil & Shadow in Whipped White Frosting, which is my standard white primer. I then dabbed on Lemon Lime on the inner half, and Lime on the outer half, blending into my crease and beyond.

added some Marcelle Ultimate Volume mascara, which does exactly what you'd expect, adding lots of volume. I finished with some light blush and lip gloss so my eyes kept all the attention.

Neon eyeshadow isn't something I'd wear every day, but it's definitely fun to play with, especially on hot summer days. Have you ever tried a super bright eye look?

Thanks so much to Amy for letting me share my neon look today!


Beautiful work, Sarah! Thanks for sharing!
