    If you're a makeup lover, you've probably noticed that bright, neon shades are poppin' right now.

    From drama-on-drama to restrained pops of colour, there are so many ways to work this trend into your repertoire.

    If you're anything like me, you want to dabble in this new craze but not spend a bomb when doing so. So here are 11 beauty buys under $50 that'll help you get creative without blowing the bank.

    1. Make your eyes pop with this BYS Neon Eyeshadow Palette.


    If there's one trend that I am dying to try this season, it's neon eyeshadow. This palette makes it easy to mix and match colours for colourful eyes. Simply choose three colours, spread the mid tone across your eyelid, apply the darkest to your outer corner and crease, and apply the brightest one in your inner corner for some serious pop.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $30.88.

    2. Or for eyes that literally ~glow~, go for this Afflano Pro UV Glow Blacklight palette.


    In you want to take the neon trend very literally, this amazing palette actually glows in the dark under UV light. Umm, yes please.

    And yes, this is a tad over $50, but for 24 colours, it's practically a steal.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $57.36.

    3. Recreate these ombre lips using

    Urban Decay / Via, Amazon

    Gloss is back, baby. But forget the sheer version that we had in the '00s — it's now heavily pigmented and here to stay. I am drooling over this ombre look by Urban Decay, which is as easy as mix-and-matching three similar shades and blending in the middle.

    Buy each gloss from Amazon Australia for $40.93.

    4. Or for a more low-key lip, try Peri's Ink Velvet by PERIPERA, available in both pink and peach tones.

    Thank you, K-Beauty, for making this trend soft, feminine and very wearable. For best results with this lip stain, apply a small amount to your inner lips, before using your thumb to pat the colour towards the outer edge.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $28.74.

    5. If you're vibing the coloured eyeliner trend, try this Maybelline Tattoo Gel Eyeliner in Rich Amethyst.

    6. For even more dramatic eyes, try this cobalt blue mascara by L'Oréal Paris.

    7. If you want to add some colour to your hair but you're too scared to commit to a dye, work these neon clips into your look.


    My suggestion? Work a side part and keep the hair off your face with two of these beauties.
