Glow-In-the-Dark Beauty Buys for Summer Soirees


From beaded headbands to neon bags, not to mention quintessential cutoff shorts, the summer music festival culture has seeped into everything sartorial. And now the style set its sights on beauty as brands are stepping beyond neon into glow-in-the-dark for the summer.

The always-industrious indie brand Illamasqua has taken glow in the dark nail polish out of the Halloween aisle and onto the summer essentials list. The brand created three unique shades for its Paranormal collection that are bold enough for day, but emit a gorgeous glow under a UV light. To “top” it all off, Illamasqua also created a Clear Top Coat that can add luminosity to any polish you apply underneath!

Stila, on the other hand, is getting lippy with its new After Glow Lip Color. The lip crayon contains fluorescent pigments that are three times brighter in the sun. With black light sensitive pigments, the lip color will make your pout pop in the dark in four shades you’ll wear all season.

Whether you’re recalling memories of the Neon Carnival during Coachella or have a blacklight party on your social calendar, these beauty buys will ensure you light up the night!
