    Bright makeup: Fun to look at, but not so easy to pull off IRL. Which is a shame, because we were positively hypnotized by the Day-Glo eyes and lips that dominated the spring runways. Michael Kors, Peter Som, Kenzo, Dior — after seeing models strut their stuff in sunny graphic liners and saturated pouts, we wanted nothing more than to adapt those vibrant shades into our own routine.

    To help us achieve our Technicolor dreams without looking like we fell face-first into a makeup counter, we asked primping pro Munemi Imai for her sage advice. Here, she shows you the right brights for your skin tone, plus the best ways to wear them on your eyes and lips. Better bust out those sunglasses, because we're about to light it up.
