Before and After Makeover: Flawless Skin Makeup Look Part 1: Cashmere Complexion

Oh, you know you’ve still got it! And with the help of some wonderful friends, we can still show it!

When I speak of friends, it’s our little makeup helpers that can really make a huge difference in how we present our beautiful selves to the world.

I am doing this before and after makeover series at the age of 56, showing my no makeup natural self, so that I can hopefully encourage you to look and feel your very best, always, no matter your age. Hey, if I can do it, then definitely, so can you!

I will tell you right away before getting started, that I prefer an easy skincare and makeup routine. I do not like to take a million steps to get myself put together and ready to go, so if you’re like me, you may really relate to my particular style of beauty routine and products that provide the coverage I require, perfectly and easily.

You ready? Let’s go!

This is a 3 part series. Part 1: Cashmere Complexion Foundations, Part 2: Skincare Before Makeup Application, Part 3: Completing the Makeup Look for a Radiant Finish

I know parts 1 and 2 are backwards, but I didn’t think you’d appreciate looking at me through one complete series without any makeup, so I completed my foundation first then went back to show my skincare products and share my routine.

Let’s chat Cashmere Complexion Longwear Foundation.

I just told you that I do not like to take a million steps to put myself together, so I really look for a foundation that has great coverage so that my skin looks flawless and gorgeous in 1 step. Cashmere Complexion does that for me. I normally use the Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation only, but decided to give the liquid formulation a try, and I really love it. I’m still using the Compact Powder Foundation as well, you’ll see in minute.

I really like the application wand. I just dot it all over (my cleaned and moisturized face – I cover that in Part 2), and then distribute and blend with a dampened sponge.

You can see that it gives me full coverage in just one sweep. My skin tone is evenly balanced. All my ruddiness is eased immediately. This is a very light formula. It doesn’t feel like I have anything on my skin. It’s really beautiful and fresh feeling.

Here is Avon’s official description:

Get cashmere-soft skin that looks as effortlessly beautiful as you do. Available in 30 matte shades to suit a wide range of skin tones and undertones, this liquid foundation visibly blurs pores and lines for 24 hours of complexion perfection. 1 fl. oz.

BENEFITS
• 24 hours of comfortable, breathable wear
• Full, flexible coverage with a soft-focus matte finish
• Visibly blurs pores and fine lines for a smoother complexion
• Soft-focus and shine-absorbing qualities help maintain a smooth matte finish
• With antioxidant botanical extracts, artichoke and butterfly lavender (non-GMO)
• Soft-coated pigments comfortably hug skin, providing maximum coverage and lasting wear
• Water-resistant
• Ideal for all skin types
• Vegan
• Fragrance-, paraben-, sulfate- and phthalate-free

I use shade Shortcake (C) #715-466. There are color charts to help you find your perfect shade based on your skin’s undertone – Cool, Warm, or Neutral, plus your skin color – Light, Medium, Dark.

Now, after I apply my Longwear Foundation, I always like to set with a powder, and there is none better (in my opinion), than my dear friend Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation.

I love this so much! And you know what? I really like using the combination of the Longwear Liquid along with the Compact Powder Foundation as a great finishing touch. This can be worn as a foundation (damp or dry) alone, so it is not flaky or dry, and it has awesome coverage on its own, so hey, super flawless looking skin is a very achievable end result – and very quickly too.

If I’m in an extra big hurry, I just grab my Powder Foundation and give my face a quick once over and I look great to go.

Here is Avon’s official description of this amazing Compact Powder Foundation:

Powdered luxury. Create a flawless, silky-smooth complexion with this weightless 2-in-1 powder foundation, featuring a luxuriously soft formula with a long-lasting soft-focus matte finish. With amino-acid-coated pigments to control shine and visibly smooth skin, and vegan collagen to keep skin looking supple and fresh. Can be applied wet or dry, as a foundation or setting powder with buildable medium-to-full coverage. Mirror compact and sponge for seamless touch-ups.

I use (C) 110 in this formulation. There are also color charts here for you to easily find your perfect shade.

I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy flawless skin foundation makeover with great assist from my Cashmere Complexion friends, and that you’ll stay tuned for the next 2 parts in this Before and After Makeover Series on Jfay’s Beauty Blog, for a flawless skin makeup look.

Trying Avon’s New Glimmer Eyeshadow in Vixen + a Little Magix!

Helloo! Who’s ready for a little Glimmer glamour in Vixen, and perhaps a little Magix glow? Yay! Me too, let’s go!

For some reason I’ve really been in the mood for Navy. It’s not a color that I’ve traditionally worn a lot, but I’ve noticed myself leaning more and more towards the dark blue in lieu of black, and I’m loving navy paired with gold. May be my go-to colors this fall. And, with that being said, I knew I wanted to try out Avon’s new fmg Glimmer Eyeshadow Quad in Vixen, which has beautiful shades of (greyish) blue. This will be my 4th fmg eyeshadow quad to try. I’m really enjoying them all.

Someone needs some color, hey? Vixen is perfect for the look I’m going for with the dark gray, steely blues, and silver sparkle. Even though I’m going with gold accessories, the silver will look great as a finishing sparkle highlight on my lids.

I used all the colors in the Vixen palette, including the dark gray as a liner over my pencil liner. I used the lighter blue/gray in my crease area, then used the darker blue over the liner area again and to darken the outer edges of my eyes. I applied the silver glimmer on my lids afterward for an extra highlight of shimmer.

I always love to finish my eye makeup looks with my very favorite mascara, Love at First Lash. It is the best mascara I’ve ever used, and I will continue to use this one always. It has great coverage in one coat, and superb flair with 2. It does not flake, and it washes off easily. There is also a waterproof version, if you’re interested in a waterproof wear mascara.

I promised you some Magix too, right?

Well, here you go! After applying my blush and lipstick, I like to finish my makeup look with some Magix Dust finishing powder. This is made from ground minerals and always gives my skin a really pretty translucent glow. It is available in 3 shades. The shade I use is Translucent Fair – Light, and it looks like you will need to get on a wait list for this shade right now. It’s well worth it. I always receive compliments that my skin looks so flawless and radiant. This loose finishing powder helps blur pores and fine lines without appearing cakey, like an invisible veil.

So, there you have it — My Vixen Magix trick, I mean, look.

To complete my Vixen Magix look, I fixed my hair, and accessorized with jewelry from Avon.

Then Hubby took me out to dinner – Yay! And I did receive compliments on my jewelry while out. Thank you Avon for always helping me shine my best light everywhere I go.

I hope this get ready with me feature was helpful and fun for you. It’s amazing how makeup can make such a difference in how we look and feel. Every bit makes a big difference, and adding the finishing touches makes it all complete.

Be sure to get on the list for the Magix Dust so you’ll be first to know when it’s available again. Avon will send you an email.

Till next time, stay fabulous, and and follow your joy!

Fall/Autumn Makeup Look, Over 50 Makeup Look

Thank you Avon – Before and After, Ages 50-56

I cannot express enough how much I love Avon, and what a (positive) difference having Avon in my life has made. I suppose pictures can tell the story even better than I. I came across this before and after pic that I had posted here some time ago, and was like, “Wow! Avon really has made a difference in my appearance over the past couple of years.”

Being an Avon Representative, of course I am using their fabulous skin care items and makeup (everything I use now is Avon), but it goes beyond the physical appearance. Being an Avon Representative really keeps me on my toes, as for wanting to look my very best, and it also has given me newly gained confidence in being over 50, and maturing gracefully.

My Latest Customer Just Received $139.00 in Free Gifts + Free Shipping. Like to Know How?

We were both super excited! What a fabulous free haul!

Like to get in on the goodness? I’ll share with you the “how’s” and how to stay “in the know” of when fabulous deals like this come around.

Firstly, for her freebies, right now Avon is offering a free “Mystery A-Box” with any $60.00 order. The one that came up for my customer was the Go For the Gold A-Box, which is a $45.00 value. She’ll be receiving a Glimmersticks Diamonds Eye Liner in 24 Karat, a Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow in Stone, Anew Ultimate Multi-Performance Day Cream (travel size), and Anew Power Serum (try-it size).

Also, with any $60.00 order from my Avon website, I pick up your tab for shipping – so, thus, the free shipping.

Now, If you follow me here, you may recall that I just posted about an Avon Live Shopping Event, right? I gave you the link to pre-register. Well, when you register for an Avon Live Shopping Event, you are going to receive an email the next day with a gift code for special gifts that go with that particular Live Shopping Event’s theme (valid for one day), plus if you attend the event you will receive the code live from the Avon Host(s) that evening, as well as be entered into giveaways that are worth $500.00, so another yay!

Okay, so we had pre-registered and had that Live Event code, and since the A-Box is an automatic gift with a $60.00 purchase, there was no coupon code needed, so we were able to use the code from the Live Event for her to receive the gift pack of 4 goodies from the Teeth Whitening Live. Hooray!

So, with her $70.00 order, she snagged $139.00 (value) worth of freebies + free shipping! That is so awesome! I am always so happy when I can help my customers (I call you all friends) get a lot of goodies.

Here is a screen shot from her shopping cart showing all the freebies:

So, how can you get in on all the free gift action?

My first suggestion is to follow me here. If you’re not on WordPress, you can sign up to follow via email to receive notifications of my posts (Check the side-bar area if you’re on a computer. If you’re on a phone, scroll all the way down and it will show up). I will be sharing the Avon Lives so that you can pre-register. Which, you can pre-register right now for the next 2 up-coming events. August 7th is Color of Love, and August 14th is Summer Fragrances, so you know those gift bundles will be fabulous! Click Here to Register.

Now, for the Mystery A-Box, this is a limited time offer, so I do not know when this will end. Snag it now if you’d like to have one. No coupon code needed. It will automatically be added to your shopping cart with any $60+ order.

And, for free shipping, I pick up your shipping automatically with any $60+ order from my Avon website.

Also, you may like to sign up to become one of my Avon Email A-Listers. I send out special coupon codes to my fabulous peeps at least once a Campaign for free gifts and sometimes discounts.

I will be sending out coupon codes for C.18 very soon, so put your name in for these gifts too!

Avon has specials all the time, so it’s good to keep informed so you can be sure to get in on your favorites. Like, right now, there is another special gift offer going in which you will receive a free Magix Prime Face Perfector with any 2 colors of LOVE purchases. This does not require a coupon code either, so you could get this freebie + the Mystery A-Box, plus free shipping + use the coupon code (for another free gift) that I’ll be sending out soon.

OH — and to make things even more spectacular for you — There is an A-Box available for C.18 called the Flawless Faves A-Box. This is only $10.00 with any $40.00 purchase, and it is a $41.00 value. Good gravy! You could get all your Christmas shopping done right now!

GRWM: The Finishing Touches Add So Much To Your Look

It’s the little things in life that can mean so much.

How are you doing today? I hope you said awesome!

Feeling all put together? I know I’m always trying to, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorite “finishing touches” that I always make sure to apply before heading out the door. Finishes touches are really the key to me feeling like my entire look is complete, both with my makeup and my outfit.

I have on my outfit, and a full face of makeup, but yet I still look “blah”. Time to add the finishing touches! I did apply mascara already (in the above picture) on my right eye, so we’re on our way!

My very favorite mascara is Avon’s Love at 1st Lash (I love the name too!). I get great coverage with one application, and really stand-out lashes with two. I do not curl my eyelashes or wear falsies, but I always get great looking lashes using Love at 1st Lash. I love the brush, it’s a nice size, and the mascara itself is just fabulous, with no flaking. It contains Vitamins A, C and E to condition lashes as you’re wearing it as well. There is also a waterproof version.

Now that my eyes are finished, and I can flutter my lashes at you, I definitely need to get some lips going on! I am using fmg Glimmer Satin Lipstick in the shade Hibiscus for a beautiful pop of color.

That’s much better!

Did you know that today is National Lipstick Day? Yay! Avon is celebrating by offering all their lipsticks at Buy One, Get One Half Off. The fmg Glimmer Satin Lipsticks are $8.49 each on my Avon website, so be sure to snag 2 of your favorites by August 1st to get the bogo deal.

I am really loving this new line of lipstick from Avon. It glides on very easily, it’s full coverage lipstick with a nice shine. I now have this new lipstick in 2 shades, Hibiscus and Wild Rose. I’m looking forward to trying even more.

So there you have it – My favorite go-to makeup items to make my look “complete”. Add some accessories, and I’m ready to head out for a date night with my sweet Hubby.

If you’re not sure which Avon lipstick will be perfect for you, visit here to find one that you’ll love. You can choose by the benefit(s) you’re looking to get from a lipstick, or by the finish you prefer. There are many shades to choose from as well.

Happy shopping and cheers to finding the perfect finishing touches to help us look and feel our best.

Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy.
