ou read magazines, you scroll through Instafeeds, you tap away at your favourite beauty blogger’s Snapchat, and you scour YouTube for tutorials. We get it — there are so many new releases in the beauty world that are hurled at us, yet there is little that excites. However, when #teamCLEO was offered an exclusive interview with Charli XCX about a make-up collab, we practically leapt at the chance. Make Up For Ever is known as the ultimate go-to for the pros, whether for the stage or for shoots, as well as for make-up junkies like us! This time, it’s all about colour. The latest collaboration between Make Up For Ever and Charli XCX sees the new Aqua XL eye pencils in a highperformance formula that is ultrabright, with incredible lasting power and high colour intensity. The campaign is the first of an ongoing series of artistic collaborations that highlight stage artists and their makeup artists. These pencils are budge-proof — so you can use your imagination to create any look. Charli reveals she likes to layer on more than one shade — matte blue and pastel yellow for a super ’80s electric feel, or bronze with pastel purple for something a little more chill (for the poolside, perhaps?). Read on to find out more!
Charli looks electrifying in these hot hues, and pulls them off so easily!
Colour up! Try layering for a fresh, modern take.
