Make Up FOR EVER Aqua Eyes, Grammy Style Studio 2010 and Adam Lambert

Today I was lucky enough to go to the Grammy Style Studio at Smashbox Studios in Hollywood. It was a gorgeous event complete with designers, champagne, and of course makeup. I was there to check out Make Up FOR EVER and see first hand what the line was all about.

Couldn’t you just play for hours?

The candy color makeup for which they’re known served as decor.

They had 4 stations set up with their best artists giving complete makeup applications to Grammy nominees and press.

And then there he was. American Idol star and the latest ‘it’ pop sensation Adam Lambert checking out Make Up FOR EVER and chatting with the artists about how he loves their HD Microfinish Powder.

So in person, he’s pretty much the way you see him on TV. Lots of makeup, jet black funky hair, and piercing eyes. He was reserved and quiet but took time to talk with people and take photos. Really sweet.

Ok, now for the goods. Here’s me after the application. Wow right? So it’s way more than I normally do (which was the point) but it was fun. Aqua Eyes was the clear winner for the best do-it-all in a snap product that makes appliying eye makeup much easier. You can use them for lining or for shadow and they’re a true waterproof (and smudgeproof) formula that glide on easily and blend in well. I wore 12L a blueish green that gave a ton of intensity and bold color on top and on the lower lash line. In the inner corner I wore 17L Pistachio, a light green with a hint of pearl to it that I was so infatuated with I smeared a little on the back of my hand (it’s a makeup artist thing) to see the color more clearly. With all of the commotion, I forgot to take it off before I left and then tried unsuccessfully to rub it off in the car several times. It wouldn’t budge or smear. I’ve never come across a pencil that was soft, blendable and a long-wearing. I can’t wait to get a few of them in my kit. 

They’re available in 25 shades, and 4 are brand new. I’ll be getting 23L Champange to brighten up the lower waterline and inner corner, and also Forrest- the most perfect deep green since green liner is so sexy and wearable.

A big thank you to Make Up FOR EVER for the invite to the Style Studio which left me scratching my head yet again wondering how I got so lucky to have this amazing job.
