As soon as we saw that first glimpse of summer, beauty brands started setting the trends for the season with an overwhelming number of exciting launches – what better time to swap out safe, warm winter tones for daring, funky colors? This year, there seems to be a neon fever going around and, with Anastasia Beverly Hills, Huda Beauty, Lorac, and Tarte dropping bright eyeshadow palettes, we’re already daydreaming about the fierce makeup looks that will put our bold summer outfits to shame.
For the neon-obsessed, a visit to the Huda Beauty website is where it’s at – the latest launch by Huda Kattan is the ‘Neon Obsessions’ palettes that happen to be the perfect size to toss into your purse and touch up on the go. Available in shades of pink, orange, and green, they comprise creamy metallic, buttery matte, and striking shimmer shades – all inspired by the beauty mogul’s obsession for neon colors.

Tarte, meanwhile, recently collaborated with 20-year-old YouTuber Jessie Paege to create its new ‘Let it Rain-bow Eye Set’, which – as you might’ve guessed – includes a rainbow of bright matte and pearlescent shades, and even a lash-loving mascara in black.

Both Lorac and Anastasia Beverly Hills have also jumped on the neon bandwagon. The limited-edition ‘Neon Lights’ palette by Lorac will be available on lorac.com on June 10 and, true to its name, screams all-night rave. Of its diverse ten-shade selection, it’s ‘Adult’ (a metallic fire-red shade perfect for a night out) that we’re most excited to experiment with.
And if that’s too long a wait, the 14-shade ‘Alyssa Edwards Palette’ by Anastasia Beverly Hills – for which the beauty brand teamed up with RuPaul’s Drag Race star Alyssa Edwards, of course – is now available online. This one’s a little more versatile as taupey brown and champagne gold shades reside alongside the likes of primary yellow, fuchsia pink, and royal blue. Win-win.
