It's time to have fun with color with the faith that it will stay vibrant and beautiful all day. There is nothing worse then sweating off your makeup in this humidity.
Makeup Forever is now offering its beautiful Aqua Eyes line in creme shadows ($22, sephora.com
) and they are gorgeous! Strong pigments with creamy textures allow easy application and great blending ability. They don't crease or smudge, AND the best part is that they are waterproof! Yes, you can have beautiful fun looks while at that pool party or beach getaway. We are talking long lasting to the 10th degree in 90-degree weather. Some of the colors can be worn as cheek or lip color, as well. Love it!
Now, how do you apply such pigmented cremes?
The secret is to use a synthetic brush like the M.A.C. 242 Shader Brush ($23, www.maccosmetics.com
). Load up the brush with product and apply by patting it on the lid. You only want to swipe or brush it on if you want lighter pigmented color. Once in place, take a blending brush, like the 217 Blending Brush ($22.50, www.maccosmetics.com
), and blend the edges of the color so it is gradual. You can also swipe a bit of color underneath the eye near the lash line. If you want to wear more than one color, then follow the same steps by building your primary color and then adding a darker crease color. These cremes blend beautifully so this should be easy to do. Color that pops and stays in place. Gotta love it! Have fun with color this season and wear with confidence!
