Makeup | How to Wear Neon Colors Through Winter
  • Neon lipsticks were all the rage this past summer, but just because it's winter doesn't mean you can't wear them. Model Annabella Barber recently wore this bright orange lipstick. What makes it work for winter? It's matte, she has minimal eye makeup, and she's wearing black. Keep eyes minimal - you can use a neutral eyeshadow but don't go too shimmery.

  • A bright orange red or even a bright pink still work for the winter months. Keep it matte by applying a layer, blot with a tissue, then apply again until you get the pigment you want. Then cover with matte powder. (Nars Lipstick in Heat Wave, $24, sephora.com)

  • Neon eyeliner, especially blue, pink, and yellow, were seen all over the spring runways, but that doesn't mean you have to wait for the weather to warm up to wear them now. Bright blue eyeliner looks great even when you don't have a summer tan.

  • Apply a bright blue liquid eyeliner thin or thick on top of your lids and keep everything else neutral. You can apply several coats of mascara but keep your lips and eyeshadow neutral. (Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner in Diamond Turquoise Blue, $23, sephora.com)

  • If you want to try something new try a colored mascara. This purple mascara seen on the runway at Stella McCartney Fall 2012 is absolutely gorgeous. To make it work for winter, keep the rest of your face neutral and don't use blush - you'll have too many colors going on.

  • You probably have a good collection of neon nail polish from the summer. While dark shades are great for winter, you can mix in your bright hues for some fun nail art.
