Top 5 Most Amazing Waterproof & Sweatproof Make Up For Ever Products

Hey Guys,

 MakeUpForEver_Waterproof&Sweatproof_MakeupSo summer is in full gear here in Europe which means the heat and sun comes along with a heavy dose of humidity! If there’s one thing I’ve learned, makeup is not a fan of humidity or sweat…it breaks down your make up making it patchy and not so long lasting. So to by pass all those yukky makeup situations I’ve complied a list of the most amazing waterproof, sweat proof and humidity proof products, and who does it better than Make Up For Ever!!

MakeUpForEver_Waterproof&Sweatproof_Makeup_HDPowder1. HD Powder… I cant live without it in the summer. I tend to be on the dry side but in the summer I become pretty shiny and oily thanks to the humidity. This stuff keeps my makeup looking flawless and fresh for hours on end.

MakeUpForEver_Waterproof&Sweatproof_Makeup_Aquamatics2. Aquamatics… these new bad boys have been a real life saver for me this summer. They are 100% waterproof, smudge proof and just generally proof haha. Once these guys set that’s it, it wont budge a bit!! The color selection is great including fun bright shades and perfect neutrals. These are the only products I’ve found that last all day long in my waterline without leaking or smearing!!!

MakeUpForEver_Waterproof&Sweatproof_Makeup_Aquamatics_AquaBrow3. Aqua Brow… My holy grail eyebrow products. As the name suggests this waterproof cream/gel is amazing. It’s so easy to work with, dries quickly and wont smudge, not from your hair swiping across, or an accidental swipe of the hand, and not to mention straight up swimming .

MakeUpForEver_Waterproof&Sweatproof_Makeup_Aquamatics_AquaBlack4. Aqua Black… I’m obsessed with cat liner at the moment and feel incomplete without it. This is another waterproof product that lasts all day without chipping or fading. The texture and consistency is soft and creamy yet not too wet or too dry for that matter. Plus it has a little sealer so it doesn’t dry out!!!!

MakeUpForEver_Waterproof&Sweatproof_Makeup_Aquamatics_AquaLip5. Aqua Lip…Best lip liners EVER!!!!!!!!! These guys really don’t budge. My lipstick lasts all day on top of these bad boys. The texture is soft yet stiff enough for maximum control. They dont dry my lips out either so they also work great on their own.

Sure these things might seem perfect for those hot summer days but these bad boys are perfect for those cold, windy, rainy, and snowy winters too, which happens to be right around the corner!! What are some of your favorite long lasting products? Have you tired any of these from Make Up For Ever? Keep a look out on my blog because I’ll be featuring the new Artist Shadows (next level eye shadows for sure!!) and Black Liners (launching at MUFE in Sephora Illum on Wednesday August 13)

Best Beauty Products of 2013- Eyes, Brows & Lips (Part 2)

Hey Guys,

urbandecay_revolutionlipstick_nyx_butterglossEyes:

Best eyeshadow palette goes tooooo..drum roll please….Lorac Pro. It has everything you need including a range of matte and shimmer shades , with perfect buttery textures and easy blendability. Of course the pigmentation is insane and its absolutely perfect for travel.

lorac_proI”m a huge fan of using cream eye shadows and colored bases. Ive tried so many of these type of products from the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils to the Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Eyeshadows, both amazing with great  color selections but my favorite ones are the Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoos. The shade range is extensive with a variety of finishes from matte, to shimmery, metallic and glitter. They last so long without creasing so they can be worn alone but they also do a great job of boosting any powder eyeshadow. I have been really hooked on the shades Pomegranate Punk, a gorgeous burgundy plum with golden micro glitter, and Pink Gold, a pretty pink with golden shimmer.

maybelline_24hour_color_tattooBest mascara is a toss up between the Benefit They’re Real and Tarte Lights Camera Lashes. They both do a fab job at volumizing and lengthening with minimal clumping. Both are the deepest of black while neither flaking or transferring onto the skin. The Tarte Lights camera Lashes gets half a point more just because the brush is slightly more comfortable on the lash line (Benefits They’re Real is a little sharp and prickly and sometimes hurts my lash line if I get too close!!)

Ive been really into winged liner this year and I find it easiest and most flattering to use a gel liner. Ive tried Smashbox, YSL, and Maybelline (just to mention a few) but the L’Oreal Super Liner Gel Intenza in Pure Black  is the best I’ve tried, it doesn’t flake, smudge or budge and its so creamy. The perfect formula for a crisp line.

tarte_lightscameralashes_LorealOh eyeliners how I love you but why must you never stay in my water line!!?? I always have to set with powder but the best black pencil liner I’ve tried in terms of lonegvity is Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Pencil in Covet. It lasts for a few hours without setting with shadow which is the best I’ve encountered so far (for my rather wet waterline!!).

AnastasiaBeverlyHills_LavishKit_CovetPencilBrows:

For the last year and a half I’ve been almost exclusively using the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow products. Ive tried the brow powder, the brow wiz, and the clear brow gel and love them all. But the most stand out product has got to be the Brow Wiz. The tip is super fine for extreme precision and the formula is soft so its easy to apply. Plus it comes with a built in spooly for grooming and blending.

Runner up for best brow product of 2013 definitely goes to the Benefit Gimme Brow. This little guy is perfect for those natural and quick make up days. The brush is tiny so its absolutely perfect for the brow, it lightly builds and fills brows for a natural put together look.  anastasiabeverlyhills_browwiz_benefitgimmebrowLips:

I’m not a huge lip liner wearer so I don’t have a big range of shades but I definitely like the Mac Pro Longwear Lip Pencils for longevity and minimizing feathering. One of my faves is RiRi Woo.

RiRi_Hearts_Mac_Collection_ririwooprolongwearpencilLipstick wise I love so many brands and have a huge collection from Mac to Lime Crime, Maybelline and Make Up For Ever but the Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks are out of this world insane. Love the color range, pigmentation, and textures. The shade in Naked and Jilted are one of my faves among many.  What an amazing product and more generally, an all over fantastic brand. You can find a full review and swatches of some of the shades here.

urbandecay_revolution_lipstickThe NYX Butter Glosses have been the best thing to come to the beauty world. The gorgeous shades of pastel pinks, lavenders and basic nudes work great for any occasion. They look great alone or layered over lipstick without that sticky tacky feeling. Plus they smell delicious!! Click here to see a full review of these bad boys.

nyx_butterglossHonorable Mention:

Although these next two products are relatively new as they came out in late 2013 I felt they deserved a mention for their amazingness.My honorable mentions of 2013 have got to be the Urban Decay Naked 3 for its gorgeous array of pinky hues, amazing textures, and fab pigmentation. As well as the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Trio… I’ve been using both of these products almost exclusively since I got them in December.

urbandecaynaked3_hourglassambiantlightingtrioWell guys, I hope you’ve enjoyed my 2013 beauty product faves and round up. All of these babies have been staples which I’m sure ill use for years to come. What were some of your faves from 2013?
