Hey everyone! Are you ready to ring in 2022? I know I am! I’m very excited for this coming New Year and all the possibilities it holds.
I’ve always enjoyed getting dressed up for a New Year’s party, and for this year’s look, I decided on black and gold, so to compliment this look I went with spicy eyeshadow tones, using 2 of Avon’s newest eyeshadow palettes in Minx and Maven, and a pretty (I call it a plum color, but it’s name is Wild Rose) lipstick shade to tie it all together.
The eyeshadow shades in Minx and Maven remind me of cinnamon, cinnamon sugar and nutmeg tones. These were fun to mix and match, using both satin and shimmery textures. These Glimmer Eyeshadow palettes glide on so nicely and blend together very well. I sometimes use my fingertip to apply the light shimmery shades for a nice final highlight to my eyelids. I did that this time using the lighter cinnamon shimmer shade in the Minx palette (The Minx palette is the one pictured on the right.). It adds a nice festive touch.
My lipstick choice was Avon’s Glimmer Satin Lipstick in the shade of Wild Rose. You receive a free package of Avon’s Makeup Remover Wipes right now with the purchase of 2 Glimmer products. That’s awesome. I just saw it now on both the eyeshadow and lipstick pages, so yay!
I also used my new favorite eyeliner, Avon’s fmg Cashmere 24HR Cream Eyeliner, in Pitch Black. You know I love the drama. 🙂 And my very favorite mascara, Love at 1st Lash.
Now I’m ready to go party! Woo hoo!
And I did mention hair goals for the New Year, didn’t I? I’ve decided to grow out my pixie cut this year and try something different. I still love wearing short hair, but I am aiming for something just a little longer on top. You will not believe who’s image popped in my head when I was thinking of growing out my hair. Miranda Priestly (character from The Devil Wears Prada)!
I’m 3 months into the grow-out, so you’ll be seeing my hair in different stages of growth.
2 products that I’m using are helping me tremendously during this grow-out period, and they will most likely be key in enjoying my hair longer on top. Avon’s Elastine PropoliThera Hair Serum and Volume Mist.
These have both been great game-changers for me. My hair has gotten more and more fine over the years, plus with my natural grays/silvers, they change the texture of my hair as well, so growing my hair out really wasn’t an option till I began using these wonderful hair products.
Firstly, the Hair Oil Serum. This is made with beeswax, honey, and royal jelly. It is formulated to bring new life and shine to your hair. And it really does. When I get out of the shower and towel dry my hair, the top of my hair is automatically dry looking, and I cannot wait to apply this. It brings new life to my hair, just as Avon describes it. It helps to moisturize, strengthen, protect, and smooth my hair. If you have gray or silver hair like me, then you know that around the sideburn area our hair tends to fuzz up, and this really helps diminish that. So wonderful!
After I apply the serum (oh, and a little tiny dab of the serum goes a long way), I then spray in the Volume Spray, especially to the front and top of my hair, and rub/distribute that in. This is made to nourish thin, dry hair. It’s made with honey, propolis extract, royal jelly, plus hydrolized collagen to infuse hair with moisture for lustrous volume. And that’s definitely what I need – volume. And that’s what it gives me – volume. It is not heavy or sticky in the least. I cannot even tell that it’s there till I dry my hair, and my hair is full and feeling awesome.
I cannot speak highly enough of these 2 wonders, except that they are total game-changers for me in my hair enjoyment and being able to now be brave to try a longer style, so yay! I am going to be trying the shampoos as well. There are 2 types of shampoo/conditioner combos and I want to try each. There is a repair shampoo and conditioner and a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. I am on the wait list for the volumizing duo and have the repair duo on their way to me now. I’ll definitely let you know how I enjoy each.
I hope you have really fun New Year’s plans. Stay safe, and I’ll see you in 2022! Let me know your beauty goals for the coming New Year. Always feel free to comment and share here.
Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!
