MAKE UP FOR EVER · Ultra HD Underpainting & Soft Light

 

MAKE UP FOR EVER has just released two new products in their Ultra HD lineup: Underpainting Color Correcting Palette (available in 6 shade groups) and Soft Light Liquid Concealer (available in 4 shades), and while it might seem contradictory to show both, I personally feel that they nonetheless compliment each other quite well. But don’t take my word for it … read on to find out why I think so.
