make up for ever aqua shadow

my eyelids are often the most neglected spot on my entire face. truth be told, on a typical day you will find them unlined and free of shadow. it’s a shame and likely cause for beauty blog mutiny, but it’s mostly because i feel like no matter what kind of waterproof shellac i put on them, it almost always ends up smeared beneath my bottom lash line. thankfully, the new aqua shadow sticks from make up for ever offer up a simple solution to my annoying little problem.

there are so many things that i like about this shadow-in-a-stick concept. for starters, carrying my eye shadow around in one slim pencil means no brush needed. it also means that application is a breeze. you can draw these on in thinner strokes to line eyes or easily shade in the entire lid for a pretty wash of color. the aqua shadows come in twelve shades ranging from five moody mattes to seven pearly, neutral cremes. they can be used to create a smudge-proof smoky eye or a super easy single-hued look.

they have totally simplified my make up routine and i’m obsessed with the way that they stay put in this heinous humidity. best of all, they’re compact and portable, ideal for on the go. my go-to shade is 26e (a rose gold) and i’m having a ball combining it with the others for a multicolored effect that even i can master.

make up for ever aqua shadows are available at sephora for $20.

    These sound lovely! I wear shadows sometimes but my problem is that after a few hours theres barely any shadow on the eyelid and just a solid line of creased product. No bueno. Maybe I’ll try these ones!
