Make Up Forever Aqua Summer 2013

Dreaming of a tropical summer vacation this year?  Well, all you need is a cute bikini, fun flip flops and Make Up Forever's Aqua Summer 2013 launch!  Make a splash with these irresistible smudge and sweat proof hues for eyes and lips that will stand up to even the most scorching of days!  Here are my faves from the collection!

Lets chat about eyes... I'm so in lust with this season's gorgeous greens!  So it's only natural that i fell instantly in love with Aqua Cream #52 Pearly Green Lagoon!  This happy hue is bold, yet totally wearable!   It works especially well with brown eyes!  I applied this beauty on before leaving for work.  I topped it off with Aqua Eyes #25L Matte Brown (a luscious deep brown eye liner that glides on smoothly creating the perfect line every time).  Let me say that these two stayed put all day long!  In fact, i decided to put them to the ultimate test!  I typically wash all of my makeup off prior to yoga class since i do mostly hot yoga and am completely drenched when finished.  On this day, i took a warm flow yoga class in a 95 degree room.  And while i got some strange looks for showing up in bright emerald green shadow, i simply smiled my way through the entire class knowing that i was on an important mission!  As soon as class finished, i peeked in the mirror and was completely blown away by the fact that my eye makeup looked as if I'd just applied it!  What?!!! I immediately envisioned the endless possibilities with these gorgeous Aqua colors!  I mean, this brought a whole new meaning to the term water proof!  Perhaps i can wear eye makeup while splashing around the delicious pool in our European summer vacation rental!  Hey, a girl's gotta look good right?  Namaste!

Here's what my eye looked like after warm flow yoga (13 hours after application)!

If you're looking for a gorgeous lip color that stays put, look no further than Make Up Forever's Aqua Rouge in #19 Pomegranate Pink.  You'll want to seal it with Aqua Lip Liner in #19 Pomegranate Pink to ensure the perfect pout!  With Aqua Rouge, you will not have to worry about smudging or smearing!  This vibrant, highly pigmented liquid lip color will remain on your lips until you are ready to remove it!  I love that it comes with a clear gloss allowing for beautiful, non-transferable, kiss and smudge-proof lips without feeling dry and uncomfortable.  This color is a total show stopper!  I wasn't sure that I'd be able to pair this bold lip with the bold eye colors above, but i actually think they complemented each other!
