For the second half of my collaboration with MAKE UP FOR EVER, I’m excited to share a short transformation video inspired by my favorite 60’s style icon. Back in part I I mentioned asking for easy-to-apply products that could survive a full day against the elements, including perspiration and watery eyes. Their smudge and water-proof Aqua line worked perfectly for my needs, and comes off gently at the end of the day with makeup remover. We did a dramatic evening look for this video, but a lighter application of the cream eyeshadow with natural lashes would be a quick and easy look for everyday wear.
Lijha, MUFE’s Director of Artistry, was incredibly knowledgeable so I kept asking about her techniques during the application. We cut out most of my yapping (otherwise the video could’ve gone on for hours : ), but I wanted to share a few additional tips learned from her below.
1. To make cheek coloring look less harsh, Lijha applied a cream blush, then went over it with a generous dusting of powder foundation. I used to always do the other way around, but loved the softer “glow from within” results with the blush layered under.
