aqua shadow

I am a sucker for make up. A sucker not because I wear make up all the time, but a sucker because I can get sold pretty much ANY make up product that someone puts on me. I feel the make up counter ladies are magicians and they some how make me look so fantastic that I have to buy whatever it is they use. Then…I get home and the magic disappears. I am always looking for make up that is easy to apply, but looks great, and I found a great product that does just that. The new Aqua Shadow from Make Up For Ever .

Aqua Shadow ($20) was in high demand backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion week swim in summer 2011, where artists had only minutes to create runway ready make up looks that wouldn’t crease or smudge under hot lights and humidity. Formulated with silica power, Aqua Shadow’s creamy texture glides on smoothly and blends easily, providing immediate color payoff. For me it was about how easy it was to put on. I quickly swiped it over my eye lid and got it to look like it took me a long time to apply. Perfect for every day wear!

Aqua Shadow is available in 12 hues from neutral to smokey with matte or pearly finishes. I personally love the pearly finish. I think it really brings out my eye liner when I am getting all dolled up. It looks like a crayon and it’s easy design makes it compact and portable.

Check out the Make Up For Ever website for more great new products and pro make up tips. Sometimes a sucker like me actually finds a great product that she can easily use herself at home. The Aqua Shadow is just that!
