Neon makeup is a no-no Statement looks can be scary. Swiping on a hot pink shadow on a darker complexion will surely create a bolder effect than on a paler-skinned woman. This instant wow-effect can be intimating -- but only if it isn't properly balanced. Women with dark skin can pull off neon makeup colors really well because the contrast of the makeup against the skin tone intensifies the pigment, says Sheriff. "However, moderation is key when it comes to bold makeup, no matter what shade your complexion is." To tone down the contrast, Sheriff suggests focusing on one feature at a time and keeping the rest of the face neutral. And remember, just because it's loud doesn't mean you can't wear it well.
