This Wednesday, I had the pleasure of attending the MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Color Festival Workshop in Montreal. A small group of us got to sit down with two Makeup Artists and learn how to complete a colourful festival makeup look from start to finish. Charli XCX is fronting the MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Color Festival campaign with a gorgeous array of looks.
In the workshop, amongst the Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer, Ultra HD foundation and HD Pressed Powder, we also got to dabble with the New Artist Rouge Lipstick and Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner.
Aside from learning about each of the products we used, I learned a trick to master contouring on my left, which has always been a struggle. Did you know you should always highlight before contouring and applying blush? I’ve been doing that step in the wrong order all along!
Above, I’m wearing one of 45 shades; Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick in C502. It’s extremely pigmented and creamy on the lips. The Aqua XL Eyeliner shades I used for this look are M-22 blue, M-92 lilac, M-10 black, and M-16 white. I’m also wearing the New Excessive Lash Mascara, with a no-smudge formula that builds volume and loads lashes from root to tip without clumping.
What do you think of the Aqua XL Color Festival Workshop look? What’s your ideal festival look?
