Prada took to the catwalk this week for its 2020 Resort show, with a beauty look that championed neon hues. The brand, however, is not the only one getting playful with eyeshadow colors this summer.
Neons have been big on the catwalk for some time now, with designers going all out with bold makeup shades for the Fall/Winter 2019 season. At Courrèges, pom-pom-style fake lashes in vibrant hues stole the show, while at Chromat, the models rocked beautiful, multi-colored eye makeup that ranged from canary yellow hues to jungle greens and hot pinks.

To celebrate #EarthDay, we’re revisiting our #AW19Climatic collection inspired by Miami. Simultaneously a paradise and a natural disaster, Miami is on the front lines of climate change with rising water, increased flooding and toxic red tides. The AW19 runway show featured a transition from vibrant, lush tropical flora and vegetation by florist @nunko to plastic caps and distorted bottles- signaling the growing plastic waste crisis polluting the ocean. At #Chromat we are committed to designing innovative swim and bodywear while ensuring a healthier planet. #ChromatSWIM is made with sustainable fabric that uses regenerated nylon spun from fishing nets recovered from the world’s oceans. We also use up-cycled fabrics and work with safe, ethical, fair-wage factories. We’re always learning more, but this is a start. 🌴 Learn more about our upcoming #AW19Climatic Collection in bio
Anna Sui opted for electric blues, greens and purples for her makeup look, and Carolina Herrera painted blocks of fiery color onto the models’ eyelids in oblong shapes. Backstage at this week’s Prada show, makeup artist Pat McGrath played with tangerine orange and sky blue shades for a kaleidoscopic effect.
It did not take long for the trend to make its way to the beauty aisles. Last month, Moschino and Sephora Collection launched a color cosmetics collection drawing inspiration from everyday school stationery. The series features a trio of highlighters packaged as neon highlighting pens, as well as a “Liquid Markers Lip Set” of five vibrant hues in matte finishes.
This week also saw Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty brand unveil its upcoming summer collection, dubbed “Getting Hotter”. The series, which will drop on May 10, comprises three different sets of “Vivid Eyeliner” trios in neon hues, dubbed “Baecae”, “Baeside” and “Baewatch”.

And as if beauty fans needed convincing further, the singer posed for the cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s “Beauty Issue” last month rocking a daring neon eye makeup look that featured vibrant hues of yellow, red, pink, turquoise and teal, giving the definitive nod of approval to the trend. CE/CC
