Charli XCX Talks About Her Signature Beauty Look and Latest Collab

Earlier this week, Make Up For Ever announced that it's teaming up with singer Charli XCX for the debut of its new Aqua XL Eye Pencils. The May launch features an updated formula—a waterproof range in 20 shades and five finishes—that will replace the brand's existing Aqua Eye Pencils. 

“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."
