MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream #20

I've been a fan of MAKE UP FOR EVER's Aqua Creams for a while now, and recently I've been trying out a bright blue shade, #20*. I normally stick to the more neutral shades in the line (#13 is one of my favourites), but it's been fun trying out something brighter and bolder!

#20 is a bright electric blue shade that is so fun for Spring and Summer. I like to use these Aqua Creams as eye shadow bases, and then layering powder shadows over top. I find the Aqua Creams to have a tacky texture, making them the perfect eye shadow base. I really like layering the blue shadows (Midnight, Fairy Godmother, and Royal) from the Cinderella  Storylook Eyeshadow Palette overtop of MUFE's Aqua Cream #20.

I think this eye look is so perfect for Springtime! And while this electric blue may look shocking in the pot, you can work with it to make it very wearable. I really like mixing blue and brown/neutral shadows, as I find they work really well together. MAKE UP FOR EVER's Aqua Creams stay on my lids all day, without smudging, fading, and creasing. They'll be perfect to use in the hot, humid summer months!

I've really been loving this Aqua Cream when I want to wear a bit of a more colourful eye. Have you tried any of MAKE UP FOR EVER's Aqua Creams before? Are you a fan of a blue eye look? :)

    1. I have the Maybelline version as well, I'll have to compare the two shades! I think the Color Tattoo is a bit more metallic.
