It's the dead of winter. I think I need a little bit of color to brighten things up around here. Don't you agree? Here's something I swatched ages ago and forgot to post and now seems like the perfect time to post it.
It's the Kryolan Aquacolor Day Glow Effects palette!
It comes with six UV-Day Glow (blacklight reactive) shades: UV Violet, UV Pink, UV Yellow, UV Green, UV Orange and UV Blue.
Aquacolors are not normal powder shadows or cream shadows. They're like a watercolor paint. A wet brush is needed to apply them.
That said, these aren't the easiest colors to apply, but once in a while they're really fun. When I use them, I usually set them with their corresponding UV Day Glow Powders. That's how I used these when I did my neon green Halloween eyes. I also try to use them over a white or creamy opaque base to give them a little more opacity.
Nothing like a little bit of eye-searing neon color on a dark, cold, gloomy day...
