Make Up for Ever treats us to a quick and easy Natural Aqua look and a chance to win the products! Contest!

Makeup artists always make it look so easy - whacking away at your face with a bunch of brushes for a couple of minutes and coming up with a perfect, natural looking cosmetic application - so not fair! Sure I could go to school for a few years to learn what they did, but that totally messes with my need for instant gratification so instead I asked one of my favourite companies to come up with a quick and easy summer look - ta da! How cute is this?! Here's how you do it:

1. Using a flat natural hair brush or your fingertip, apply a thin layer of Aqua Cream on the eye lid (where ever you feel the eye ball) and blend the edge lightly with a natural hair brush.

2. - Using a squirrel tipped natural hair brush, apply a deeper or brighter Aqua Cream to the outside corner or the eye.

- Working quickly, blend toward the inside of the eye, ending approximately at the pupil of the eye.

- Keeping the colour slightly above the crease will make the eye look more open, using a small or angled natural hair brush blend the same colour right under the lashes, ending approximately at the outer edge of the iris.

3. Apply the liner thinner on the inside to thicker on the outside, add a wing tip if desired.

4. Use a natural hair brush or sponge to apply an Aqua Cream shade to the cheeks, start approximately 1 inch behind the apple of the cheeks and blend backward then forward, work quickly!

5. - Apply an Aqua Lip liner to the natural lip line and balance the lips where needed, feather the liner inward slightly for better blending with the lip colour.Apply an Aqua Cream to the inside of the lips.

Of course you need some Aqua products for your Aqua look and what better way to get them then to win them?! Feeling an Aqua need? Then read on...
2 of our lovely readers will receive a selection of products valued at over $100 including: 2 Aqua Creams - #13 & #7, 1 Mini Aqua Smoky Lash in Black, 1 Aqua Eyes - 0L and 1 Aqua Lips - 2C

  1. I follow thru GFC (Shery)! and I liked MUFE on facebook (Shery). Hmm the green in the look inspires me to call it "vernal fresh"!

  2. To me this look is fresh, outdoorsy, and a little whimsical. The name that immediately comes to mind is "A Midsummer Night's Cream." I follow through GFC as "C of Corals."

  3. I follow through GFC (asiyakei) and liked MUFE on FB (Justine). I followed both BeautyCrazedCan and MakeupforeverCA on twitter (@sakura__lovely). The eye shape reminds me a bit of umbrellas, but the colours are beach worthy, so I'm going with Summer Parasols! E-mail: sakuralovely (.) blog (@) gmail (.) com
