Make Up For Ever @ Ed Hardy

Make Up For Ever Alliance artist, James Vincent (, served as the key make up artist for the Ed Hardy swim show on Friday, July 16th. James created a bold black eye and strong red lip for a glamorous, old Hollywood look.

Complexion & Cheeks: The skin was bronzed and dewy with highlights on the brow bone and high cheek.

Eyes: To get a neutral base for the eye, James applied Make Up For Ever Eye Shadow #156 up to the brow bone. He then created a thick rim around the top of the eye extending to the liner beyond the outer corner of the lid using Make Up For Ever Aqua Black, and he then went on to rim the lower lash line as well. He finished by applying two coats of Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Lash.

Lips: For a gorgeous pop of red on the lips, James applied Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream #8.

To celebrate, Make Up For Ever and Temptalia are giving away:

  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Black
  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes #0L
  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream #8

    I’m not sure you could pay anyone to wear Ed Hardy make up lol, more or less buy it

    • air

      seriously, and the way it’s applied on these models… no thank you to that!

      • Stacey M

        Uhg, I was hoping I wasn’t the only one that thought that… and their fake bangs are rediculous…

        • Alfton

          I know that’s right. That girl is Chris Brown’s current girlfriend Jazmine and let’s just say that she is definately no Rhianna. I dont like this look on her because usually she is so beautiful but this here does her no justice. POOR THING! SMH

        • Halo

          same here before i read the coments i was thinking please, don’t let me be the only one who thinks that looks horrible and the eyeliner come on! thats not even pretty in a parallel universe. please reply if you agree this dosen’t look like the “old Hollywood” look the artist was going for

      • Xtina

        The look is very street-walker-ish. I’m really confused by the flesh toned eyeliner. It just looks like these hookers can’t do their make up right!

    • Sasha

      The makeup is actually by MUFE, not Ed Hardy.

    • Victoria N.

      makeup is by ‘Make Up For Ever’ not Ed Hardy, but I too dont quite fancy this look.

  71. Keener

    I could wear a smoky eye everywhere (it’s the only thing I know how to do well with eyeshadow), while doing the dishes, while picking up soy milk at 9am, while slaying vampires, whatever your day entails a smoky eye complaints any activity… but mostly I reserve it for nights I want to be smouldering, usually those are the rare times I hit a club or when trying to add some edge to my look if I’m attending something like a wedding reception.

  72. Phung

    I would wear the smokey eye look to the Microsoft Christmas Party. I would wear a brownish with copper smokey eye look, my favorite eyeshadows are mostly browns and purples. I wore brown as my first eye shadow when I was growing up!

  73. Mel

    There aren’t a lot of places I WOULDN’T wear a smoky eye. I don’t wear a lot of makeup because I work with cars all day in a dirty shop, but when I do, a smoky eye is my goto look. I use lighter colors for daytime and casual events, and darker when I want to glam it up.

  74. mandy

    I would wear smokey eyes to a night out to dinner

  75. Hanna

    I wear heavy dark smokey eyes for nights out. Dark but not heavy I wear at night time if I am going out for dinner or drinks with the girls. A more neutral smokey eye I wear doing the day – I like to wear bright colours in the summer where I wear more browns and grays in fall/winter.
