Warm weather makeup is all about bright colors that can beat the heat. MAKE UP FOR EVER has their stay-in-place game tight with their Aqua Rouge collection. I’ve replaced most of my other long wearing lip colors with their Liquid Lip Color because it has what the others lack- a glossy finish. Other long wearing lip colors might stay put but they do that thing where they collect in the corners of your mouth and look dry and flakey. These have a light glossy top coat to lock the color in and give your lips a sheen that looks and feels like any other cream lipstick.
When I apply them, I lay down the lip color first, then use a liner to get a good boundary before adding the clear gloss. For years now I’ve used Aqua Lip liners in my kit- they’re creamy enough not to drag and they don’t bleed or breakdown.
My brides tell me their lips stay put from the ceremony to the end of the night while only occasionally reapplying the clear gloss to freshen up the color. It’s the real deal for events or for those who aren’t into a constant lip touch-up throughout the day.
