Stick to this summer bright makeup tutorial and follow the steps mentioned below!

Step 1: Like anything else, makeup also requires a good basis! Prepare your face for this bright neon makeup by washing it. On your fresh face apply a makeup base and then the foundation. Use the concealer on the areas, where you have some skin flaws to hide. If you have an oily skin, apply powder afterwards to ensure the long lasting effect of your look. Contour your face with your favorite blush. You are advised not to overdo with the blush, since your eyes are going to be well highlighted already.

Step 2: Create the perfect thick eyebrows using a brow kit.

Step 3: Now the fun part: eye makeup! Prime your lids and apply a creamy base to prevent your eyeshadow from creasing later on.

Step 4: Apply a shimmery pink eyeshadow on the inner corner of your lid (Pink Jewel from the Sleek Lagoon Palette). Next to it, add a neon peach eyeshadow not reaching the very end of your lid (Ariel from the same palette).

Step 5: Apply an orange eyeshadow on the spot the pink and peach colors meet.

Step 6: With a purple eyeshadow create a wing at the end of your lid (Night Sky from the Sleek Lagoon Palette). Next, blend the purple color to the crease and bring it above the neon color.

Step 7: Apply a darker purple eyeshadow on the eye socket (Deep Water from the same palette).
