Summer music festival is in full swing and with Bonnaroo & B96 Summer Bash this weekend, it’s time to plan your nighttime dramatic festival look. During the day you may go for the natural look (and check out our tutorial on an easy fishtail braid for a no-fuss hair option), but when the sun goes down it’s time to bust out something that helps you stand out from the rest of the crowd.

Make-up artists Andie Markoe-Byrne (Colbie Caillat, Feist, Maria Sharapova) showed us how to use neon eyeliner for a pop of color that will explode off your face when the stage lights hit it — and an extra trick to make the look super modern.

Markoe-Byrne layers neon blue pencil and neon blue creme eyeliner to get the ultra-bright effect. To maximize the effect, she showed us how to make a winged V shape around the edges of the eye.

Her pro-tip: avoid neon purple, it is not flattering to most skin types.

Our look is very similar to the one Kelly Clarkson sported for her black-light performance for American Idol. If you add a full lid of black eye shadow, you can replicate it exactly.
