This look features the new shadows in Sugarpills Heart Breaker quad. The shades are very bright, but it is possible to turn this into a more wearable look by using a more neutral shade or brown in the crease and keeping the bright shades on the lid.
This look also uses two of four new Makeup Forever Aqua Creams. When the Aqua Creams were originally released a few years ago, there was a deep purple shade that was available for a brief period; then yanked off the US shelves. Rumor was there was an ingredient used that was not allowed here in the States. Either the formula was changed or the US lowered its standards, but yay for us it’s here. Along with the purple (#26), Makeup Forever released a lime green (#23) and bright matte yellow (#24) and a pastel blue (#25). Here are swatches of the Heart Breaker quad and two of the Aqua Creams and here for the palette.

I primed my lid using Too Faced Shadow Insurance (don’t fret Nars, you’re still my all-time favorite primer). I applied the lime green aqua cream to my lid using a Mac 242 brush. I used the other side of the same brush to apply the purple aqua cream underneath my eye and winging it out. Using a Mac 239, I put Acidberry on my lid.
Using a Rae Morris #12 brush, I applied Velocity to the outer corner, blending it into the green and the crease. Using the other side of the #12 brush, I blended Mochi into the darker blue in the crease and over to the inner corner. I used a skin tone shade to blend out the edges.
Using a small pencil brush, I applied 2AM over the purple aqua cream underneath my eye. The purple was lightly blended in to the blue. To give it a bit more depth, I softly added a matte black in between the blue and the purple.
