Janelle Monae’s Latest Look Is a Lesson in Neon Bright Beauty

Image result for Janelle Monae’s Latest Look Is a Lesson in Neon Bright BeautyJanelle Monae is no wallflower: the singer and actress is known for her outré looks both on and off the red carpet, where she’s cultivated an experimental look that is always slightly offbeat in the best way possible, a touch theatrical, and never short on color. Yesterday, Monae hit the red carpet at the 2019 Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles, and she continued on that vivacious spirit. To mark the first week of spring, she chose to deep-dive into one of the season’s biggest trends: neon bright beauty.

Looking to the recent Spring 2019 runways, a few of the eye-popping beauty trends that dominated the season included pastel eyes, bright lips, and an overall celebration of high-octane color. Monae infused that idea into her look on the step and repeat yesterday, in an unexpected way: she glided on some teal mascara, coating it onto her thick, fanned-out lashes. It proved to be a fresher take than, say, colored eyeshadow or eyeliner, though equally as impactful. Then, on her nails, she chose a sunshine-yellow polish, which made the case for color-blocking a manicure against one’s makeup.

Considering her two bold choices for the awards ceremony—colorful mascara and mani—Monae left the rest of her beauty look simple: glowy skin and a pale pink glossy lip accentuated her more playful neons. So, while fall-winter was all about those dark, moody hues, Monae’s daring combo officially proves it’s time to lighten things up again for spring.
