Musicians are always touring and on-stage, which is why it is important for them to wear makeup that is portable, easy to apply, and can withstand just about anything. Cargo Cosmetics’ new Spring Limited Edition “You Had Me at Aloha” eye shadow collection, as well as their new line of Swimmables™ cosmetics, are absolutely perfect for performing musicians since they hit all the right marks.

The brand is currently working with a new artist Anuhea who quoted “I’ve always been a fan of Cargo Cosmetics. The portable packaging and water-resistant formulas are great when I am on tour and performing under hot lights. It is an honor to be associated with the brand’s new collection inspired by Hawaii’s beauty.”

Cargo Cosmetics Introduces Anuhea as Brand’s First-Ever Celebrity Face

In this post, we will be talking about some of Cargo Cosmetics’ new products for Spring/Summer 2017 along with the new Swimmables™ line which are suitable for musicians like Anuhea herself. These products are a must-have and will easily become a favorite of anyone who uses them! Let’s see what these must-have makeup products are:

Dare to Flair Mascara

If you have this mascara in hand, there is no need for you to carry around an eyelash curler. The less products in your makeup bag, the better it is; right? The Dare to Flair Mascara features an amazing wand that curls and lifts your lashes outward to achieve that voluminous winged effect. Its formula has polymers that hold lash curl and doesn’t smudge or flake at all. This mascara is exactly what every musician needs in her life!


Swimmables™ Waterproof Mascara Top Coat

Want to make your favorite mascara waterproof?  Now you can do it within seconds!  The Swimmables Waterproof Mascara Top Coat is basically a transparent top coat that you apply on the lashes to ensure that whatever mascara you are wearing lasts longer and remains protected from running down your eyes or smudging while you perform on stage. With this product, your lashes will last through all the sweat, tears and rain you encounter on stage. It can be applied right after putting on the mascara or later during the day.

Swimmables™ Longwear Eye Shadow Sticks

When on tour, these eye shadow sticks will become a favorite of many musicians out there. They have a super creamy formula that is easy to apply and give a long-lasting finish. One layer will give a sheer wash of color; however one can easily layer it on to get the desired intensity. After application, you will have only 20 seconds to blend it out before it sets in place. The formula is highly crease-resistant and budge-proof!

The eye shadow sticks come in these gorgeous colors:

“You Had Me at Aloha” Eye Shadow Palette

A highly versatile eye-shadow palette containing 12 stunning shadows that are long-lasting and give an amazing finish. The colors of this palette are inspired by the sun, water and foliage of Hawaii. Anuhea, Cargo’s Brand Ambassador and musical sensation likes to keep things simple by going for a laid-back, carefree and neutral look. However, one can also go for a bolder look by playing around with the shades inspired by orchids, plumeria, hibiscus and turquoise waters.

Swimmables™ Water Resistant Blush 

It’s important while on stage to have blush that won’t streak when sweating. Cargo’s water resistant blush is a soft, silky cheek powder formula comes in three shades (Medium Rose Pink, Shimmering Hot Pink, and Los Cabos which is a soft tangerine glow). Cargo explains that the silicone-coated pigments allow for a better bond to the skin, and the product’s amino acid L-Lysine (which is found naturally in the skin) assists in the blush’s “long-wearing and water-resistant properties.” And it’s paraben free!

Each product is affordably priced and worth the money!  Any musician like Anuhea needs them in her life!
