Make Up For Ever: Aqua Cream Review

September 7th, 2010 / Posted by natasha

We adore our makeup grad and little superstar, Timothy Hung.

We call him a quadruple threat. Not only is he extremely hard working, humble, and lovable, he’s also phenomenal at makeup, hair, styling, and photography.  He has such a fun resume, too. In Italy, he interned with Dsquared2 and worked backstage at Milan Fashion Week as a makeup artist for Roberto Cavalli and Pucci (to name a couple) season after season. Plus, he did photo shoots for magazines (Elle, Maxim, Moda), agencies, and photographers every week! And guess what – Tim recently introduced his own fashion and accessories line! We’re a fan and can’t wait to see what he will come out with next. (Check out his beautiful collection here!)

So, when he was personally invited by Make Up For Ever’s Heather Nightingale to participate in the launch of the 22 vibrant shades of the new and versatile Aqua Cream product at Sephora Pacific Center in Vancouver, we naturally had to get his opinion…


Tim: As a special guest artist, my role was to create a high fashion character with an aqua theme in the store front window. Given the 5 hours period, I have transformed the model (Grace @ Lizbell Agency) from girl next door to a high fashion editorial figure through makeup, hair, and wardrobe styling.  To complete the look and to add a twist on the aqua theme, I created a metallic sea shell head piece as a finishing touch.  It was a fantastic experience to demonstrate my artistic skills live and to experiment with the endless possibilities of the new Aqua Cream!

Tim’s Aqua Cream Review:

I applied the new Aqua Cream from Makeup Forever in many different ways on this makeup demonstration.  I’ve used them on their own and have also layered them with eyeshadows, powder, and lip gloss.  The new Aqua Cream have a beautiful soft and creamy texture that makes blending quick and effortless.  I was very impressed with how resistant the finishing texture is and how intense the pigments are.   I would definitely recommend this product for people looking for more artistic mediums or simply for those searching for impeccable hold.
