FOTD Friday: 4 ways to use Make Up For Ever aqua creams

| July 23, 2010 | 17 Comments

This week’s look is brought to you by Make Up For Ever and the letter “O” for Ohmigoodness, I need every single aqua cream in my life now. Okay…I’m getting carried away. Let me start from the beginning.

There it was. The Make Up For Ever booth at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week-Swim. After attacking waiters with food on silver platters patiently waiting our turn, Nikki New and I headed over for our appointment. Nikki thought that I would be the one getting the make-up but heavens no…she would be the easel, I would be the annoying sidekick shrieking at the beautiful application of each aqua cream.

While Nikki and her fabulous make-up artist talked about the look they were going for, I walked around being nosy.

Okayyyyy, forget about things you would do for a Klondike bar. What would YOU do for that make-up kit? Icy eyeballs, it looks amazing!

I headed back over to the gals to see that they’ve already applied #21, a vibrant turquoise aqua cream on the water line.

Nikki already had on turquoise eyeliner so instead of removing that, our artist (whose names I SO forgot) worked right on top of it. Next up was #20, an intense blue that I should have had in my life yesterday.

She applied that right on the lower lashline. #12, a muted gold that looks ah-mazing on brown skin. It almost reminds me of MAC’s Indianwood paint pot.

That went right on the lid. This worked perfectly for Nikki because she has those beautiful deep set eyes.

Nikki’s face was buffed with HD foundation…

And guess what the make-up artist used on her cheeks? Remember that #10 deliciously orange aqua cream that I used on my lids last week? Who knew that could work as a blush?

Gorgeous! And then she used #25 super gloss on her lips. I LOVE this chocolate gloss. I need that in my life too!

Stunning, right?! Oh…forgot to show you the fourth way you can use an aqua cream…

In your hair! Shut…up. That’s #8, a tomato red. So freakin’ cool!

Have you tried MUFE’s aqua creams yet? Which ones are you lovin’?

Have a great weekend!

  12. Michelle's Ethnic skin care says:

    I do like the shimmery effect but I'm wondering. What's in their products.

    I don't mean to be the damp cloth here. I'm just wondering if they have any kind of parabens in the product???

    I had tried MAC pots several times and while the eye creams don't bother me, their overall face make up is too harsh on my sensitive skin.

    P.S. I still using the MAC honeypot every now and then. I'm not about to throw away good money!
