Guess what? Make Up Forever, a professional make-up brand from Paris has now launched in the UK and is exclusive to Debenhams! I like to think of the products as the French version of MAC because the colours are really highly-pigmented and long-lasting. This is professional make-up for make-up artists and it’s now accessible to us in the UK!
The brand was discovered by Dany Sanz, who was a painter-sculptor and discovered make-up through body painting. How cool is that? It must have been meant to be because the products filled a gap in the market for professional grade make-up – often used on movie sets, backstage at fashion shows, etc.
Now we can all get our hands on it! I’ve had a chance to try some of the products myself so you can see for yourself what is on offer. The High Definition Powder below is a lovely translucent powder that feels silky and soft and is nice to buff on to cover up shine.
The Aqua Rouge below is a waterproof liquid lip colour. This will not budge! I swatched it on my hand and proceeded to wash it off with soap and even that took a while to come off so if you are looking for a lipstick or gloss that has true staying power – this is your woman!
To create mega lashes you have to go for falsies. These False Eyelashes below are really unique because they have a really interesting lash shape. Wear them for extra glamour for a big night out or you could even cut sections off the end and just apply them to the end of your lash line.
I absolutely adore this Aqua Liner – it’s waterproof and again it doesn’t budge. You can see I’ve swatched it below and it has a beautiful aquamarine colour. The applicator is also very easy to use and allows you to draw on a pretty straight line – something I always have trouble with!
The Aqua Eyes Eyeliner is a black, waterproof eyeliner pencil. Again this won’t budge so if you are going out, this is the one you are going to want to go for!
Last but not least is the Aqua Lip waterproof lip liner pencil. Again, I have to say this but it doesn’t budge! My conclusion is that if you are looking for high-performance make-up, the Make Up For Ever is going to be a great choice. The waterproof range lasts ages and at prices ranging from £13.00 to £19.00 it is also very affordable! Available now at Debenhams.
