I didn't have time to do natural/flash swatches, so I just did the swatches in natural light. Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think!

This look is very simple, easy and quick to do.
I patted the Aqua Cream cream eyeshadow on the lid with my finger and blended in and over the crease. I did two layers because blending causes the product to become very thin. I didn't apply a base because once they are on, the MUFE Aqua Cream stay on for a long time.
Then I lined my eyes with the Aqua Black liner (all the way for the upper lid, 3/4 in for the lower lid). I smudges the liner on the lower lids and then I lined my lower waterlines dippind the UD Zero eyepencil in the Aqua Black to make the line waterproof and long-lasting. Mascara a-go-go.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Waterproof Cream Color in 17 is a soft plum-burgundy color. It applies a bit unevenly but the lasting power alone is enough to get past this small defect. It's waterproof and has a soft texture when applied. It has a really subtle shimmer that is not fastidious or in-your-face.

Sleek Makeup Blush in Santorini is part of the Mediterranean Limited collection that launched months ago. It's a intense blue-toned pink-fuchsia with incredible color payoff. As I already said, pick the smallest amount you can and blend well.

Mac Sweet Sunrise is a nude-color lipstick that belongs to the Naturally LE collection. It has a Lustre finish and is sheen and not drying on the lips. No staying power though. I have fairly pigmented lips and this lipstick reads milky on me instead of pink-nude (as you may see on my arm). For me it works well when I want to keep my lips neutral and almost invisible with a strong eye look.
