Not a look for the faint-hearted, the look comes in neon shades for the daytime, getting its glow-in-the-dark look when placed under a blacklight.

If you want a slightly softer take on the craze, try pastel pink shades – these firmly remain a favourite in the world of beauty so it's an ideal way of rocking two trends at the same time.

Many bloggers have been pairing the look with neon make-up for an eye-catching finish - although we wouldn't recommend trying this style for a day at the office!
