Before I jump into the look, can we take a second to appreciate their limited edition “Iconic Avon” lipsticks? I’d say the packaging is everything, except that the lipstick is equally epic in formula and you can’t beat the price (only $6.99)! They have such rich pigment and glide on my lips so easily and smoothly. I’m wearing the shade Holly Red as seen in my photos. Also, their True Color Glimmersticks (lip liners and eyeliners) are so creamy, pigmented, retractable and only $2.99 – stock up! They are such a score! You can also use code: LARA25 for an extra 10% off, plus free shipping on orders over $25. This is a one-time use offer, so make it count!
All good makeup starts with good skincare so I started by prepping my skin with Avon’s ANEW Hydra Fusion Replenishing Serum, followed by the ANEW Hydra Fusion Gel Cream, which I mix with a few drops of Avon’s True Color Dazzle Drops for an overall glow.
TIP: The moisturizer is like water (it’s not heavy) so it’s great to dab a small amount over makeup during the day for touchups if you start to feel dry or want your skin to have a more dewy glow.
Next, using Avon’s True Color Moonlit Highlighting Powder in Topaz as a bronzer. I applied it in the shape of a 3 starting at the temple going along the cheekbone and then down around the side of the face to the chin. Then, using the In the Blush of Dawn palette from the Iconic Avon Beauty Classics Collection 3-Piece Palette set, I used the upper left bronze blush over the cheek bone portion of the True Color Moonlit Highlighting Powder for some extra emphasis. Then, I went back in with the True Color Dazzle Drops above my cheekbone up to my brow bone in the shape of a “C” and blended fully. I also applied about a drop of the product on my finger and dabbed it down the bridge of my nose and blended for a slight highlight.
I started my look by applying True Color Glimmersticks Eyeliner in Blackest Black to the lash line, blending upwards to create a dark base over my lids. Then I went over my lid using a dark, sparkly shade from the Iconic Avon Beauty Classics Collection 3-Piece Palette in She Dreams of Silver Shadow Palette Vol. II. Then, I warmed up the crease of my eyes using the Eyes of Golden Wonder Palette Vol. 1 using a brownish shade. After going back over my lash line with Avon’s Mega Effects Liquid Eyeliner, I extended the liner into a slight cat eye. Next, I applied the True Color Glimmersticks Eyeliner in Emerald in the waterline, extending it out to the cat eye by hugging the black liner. To finish, I applied two generous coats of the True Color Love at 1st Lash Mascara.
NOTE: Feel free to add in the ANEW Clinical Unlimited Lashes Lash & Brow Activating Serum if it’s needed otherwise delete.
For the lips, I like to line them with Avon’s True Color Glimmersticks Lip Liner in True Red and then apply the Iconic Avon Lipstick in Holly Red over it.
TIP: If you plan on having a long night out with several beverages and food involved, you can fill in your whole lip with the lip liner and then apply the lipstick on top for longer staying power.
Thank you Avon for partnering with me on this post and having me apart of our holiday campaign!
