Makeup Tutorial: 5-Minute ‘Going Out’ Eye Using MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Shadows

It’s 3 PM on a gorgeous weekday in the summertime. You longingly steal stares out the window, trying to mentally transport yourself to the grassy knoll across the street.   You check your email to find your friend has secured a table at an outdoor venue for after-work drinks, starting in two hours.  You immediately perk up at the thought of enjoying the weather without having to climb out onto your fire escape. But wait! You barely have any eye makeup on!  And let’s face it, any remnants of this morning’s makeup are going to melt off once subjected to the summertime heat.  You frantically search your handbag but only come up with lipsticks and glosses.  Never fear, my beauties…

Meet the MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Shadows ($20) waterproof shadow pencils that come in 12 different shades (5 matte and 6 pearly) and can be used as both liners and shadows.  They blend beautifully, lasting through long hours of heat and humidity and they’re the perfect size for stashing in your lipstick bag.

I was lucky enough to have the lovely Maria as a houseguest this past weekend and as soon as she saw the collection of Aqua Shadows she dropped her bags and was ready to play.  She created a gorgeous evening eye on me (see below) within the span of a few minutes, using only two of the pencils (#8E: a vivid matte teal and #20E: a pearly taupe) and her ring finger  to make me look like I was ready for a night out of no good:

Full Disclosure: These photos were taken a day before my eyelash extension fill-in so please forgive the sparse scraggly lashes)
