Charli XCX Talks About Her Signature Beauty Look and Latest Collab

Earlier this week, Make Up For Ever announced it would be teaming up with Charli XCX for the debut of the new Aqua XL Eye Pencil. The launch of the eyeliners features an updated formula—a waterproof range in 20 shades and five finishes—that will replace the brand's existing Aqua Eye Pencils from now in the UK and from May in the U.S. “When I wear makeup I can feel sexy, demure, classic, futuristic… so many different things. Make Up For Ever is vibrant, energetic and diverse. I can play with the products to suit my mood. That’s what I love the most," Charli says in a press release. The brand also adds that this partnership is "the first of an ongoing series of artistic collaborations that highlight stage artists and their makeup artists."
