Hey gang! So who’s planning a fun road trip this Summer? Or two, or more road trips? It’s so fun to get out on the road and see the sites, perhaps visit a destination spot, or not. Just have fun.
When I go on a road trip, I like to feel comfortable and casual, but still look presentable, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorite Avon products that I use to get ready for the day’s adventure.
Now, not pictured above, and a very great and easy beginning to my makeup look is Avon’s Cashmere Compact Powder Foundation. This foundation (to me) is the complete bomb! I love this so much. I do not need a concealer or several different makeup items for a full coverage look. I just simply swipe it on, and it’s like magic to me. I put this on my eyelids too. It works as a great primer for my eyeshadow, so yeah, this is my one-stop all over face perfecter, and it is very fast and easy. Let’s get on the road! 🙂
It has powder in the formula, so no need to take powder with you for touch-ups. You can just slip this in your purse and go. There’s a little storage area underneath the foundation for the makeup sponge. $30.00, and worth every cent!
I decided to wear Avon’s new Bombshell Eyeshadow Palette. It went perfectly with my red and white striped shirt. You’ve seen me wear this palette before for a very dramatic look, so I thought you may like to see that it can certainly be worn very lightly too. The colors are so beautiful in this palette, and I am really happy that there is a brow highlight color in this one too. This is a Matte Eyeshadow Quad, listed on my Avon website for $11.99.
With this being a Matte Eyeshadow palette, again, very easy to apply. I did not need a long time to put this on. Just a few swipes, and I was done. I did not want to spend a long time on my makeup, but I did want it look nice and fresh. Which, all my makeup, (except my lipstick) lasted all day without any touch-ups. I did have to reapply lipstick.
And speaking of lipstick… I went with Wild Cherry! I know, it looks very dark for a day-time trip, but applied lightly it is a gorgeous Cherry Red color.
This is an Avon fmg Glimmer Satin Lipstick, and this particular shade is one that they brought back. I’ve been enjoying this shade since the ’90’s. When Avon re-did their lipstick line, Wild Cherry was not part of the line-up at first, but then they brought back some of our all-time faves. So happy! This is listed on my Avon website for just $8.49. I wore this over my favorite Avon Dew Kiss Lip Balm and just added it lightly till I achieved my desired shade. This is a great shade for varying the color. Wear it light or dark and dramatic.
And for my hair. Yes, I went with curls for a road-trip, but I did not do my hair the day-of. I slept with one of those satin curler rods and just released my hair in the am, ran my fingers through my hair and then spritzed with Avon’s Chi Enviro 54 Natural Hold Hair Spray, and I was ready to go.
What? You didn’t know that Avon carried Chi products? Well, stop on by and see the whole line-up of Chi products!
This hair spray worked so well. It held my hair, but without feeling too harsh. I like my curls to look and feel flowy, but stay together. Know what I mean? My curls lasted the entire day, even on a humid day, so yay! This stuff is awesome!
And the smell…. I LOVE the smell of this hairspray. I’d wear it for a perfume. It’s a botanical hairspray, but not flowery.
$21.50 on my Avon website.
Now, as promised in my Anniversary Road Trippin, Avon Style, Part I, how about some pics of where we went?
I hinted to you that it involved an indoor sport. Did you guess what it was? Putt-Putt! There’s a new place near downtown Houston that is a modernized putt-putt place, called The Puttery. It’s all indoors, and it’s only for adults. How awesome is that? There are 3 courses on two levels, each with their own restaurant and bar area, and each with their own signature cocktails to match each course. It is so beautiful in there. We played on the Conservatory Course:
The food is delicious at The Puttery in Houston. The burger sliders were so tasty, as was the Margarita pizza. We totally enjoyed our afternoon here.
And… I do remember I mentioned to you about where to get some really delicious fried green tomatoes, didn’t I?
Here are some pics from one of our days visiting the Humble area. We visited Humble City Cafe, in the historic Pangburn Building in old town Humble for some down-home cooking.
See the fried green tomatoes? They’re served with ranch dressing. So crunchy, and so good!
I hope you enjoyed sharing in our anniversary festivities via pictures here. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy some really fun Summer road trips yourself!
