Why we like it: Neon beauty is tricky and even more so when you’re on a budget. There is nothing worse than a cheap formula when you’re trying to make a statement because no one wants to see chalky cheeks, feathered lips and super creased eyes. Luckily, there are plenty of drugstore options for you to get this perfect summer look.
How to get it at home: Start with a one-step base, such as Rimmel London’s Stay Matte Foundation ($4.99), which not only renders powder unnecessarybut also delivers a velvet finish perfect for summer. Add a touch of color back into the cheeks using Cover Girl’s Classic Color Blush in Natural Glow ($6.99), concentrating the color on the high points where your skin would naturally get some color.
Get Diane’s perfectly shaped brows with a pencil, such as Rimmel London’s Professional Eyebrow Pencil ($3.99), but be sure to use the attached brush to smooth out any hard lines and distribute product. With a light hand, apply a small amount of Maybelline’s Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow in Barely Branded ($6.99), which will give you Diane’s subtle shimmery glow, and finish your eyes with a lengthening mascara, such as L’Oreal’s Telescopic Mascara in Black Noir (9.99).
Lastly, for the most important element of this look, you can get this remarkable pop of neon with Nyx Cosmetics’ Butter Lipstick in Razzle ($5.99).
