Celebrating Beauty Over 50!

Thank you Avon!

I love the phrase Over 50 and Fabulous! It’s such a wonderful milestone in a woman’s life I believe. To reach the age of 50 (and beyond), and feel awesome, and feel like you’re still looking pretty awesome too. We’ve raised our families and are now on a new journey. It’s pretty spectacular.

I’ve partnered with a couple of my Avon Teammates to celebrate the fact that we are over 50 and pretty darn fabulous, and to say a huge Thank You to Avon for being part of the beauty in our lives, inside and out.

I’d like to introduce you to these stunning ladies. First is one of my Avon Mentors, Keely Johnson.

Keely is a very youthful 57 yrs old and has been using Avon skin care for about 15 yrs now.

Keely says, “People always tell me that I don’t look 57. Thanks Avon!!! I use all the Avon skin care and Avon makeup. I switch it up and use different things on different days. Here are some of my favorites. I use the Rice Water Cleanser, The Face Shop Oil Anti Age Facial Serum, the Cica Peptide, the Anew Ultimate Dual Elixir, sometimes the Ultimate Day Cream, Ultimate Eye System, Anew Hyaluronic Serum, Vitamin C Serum, and Vitamin C Eye Cream. I like to use it all and switch it up, I want all the benefits of it all.”

Let’s meet beautiful Michelle Butler.

Michelle is 51 but has been told she still looks 30…. thanks to Avon!

Here are Michelle’s favorite skin care products from Avon: “I use Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser and Multi-Performance Day Cream and Night Cream. I also use Anew Ultimate Supreme Dual Elixir at night. For eyes I use Eye Lift Pro Eye System and Anew Vitamin C Brightening Eye Cream.” 

And look who’s next, meet Jfay, your Beauty Blog Hostess.

I am 55 and have been an Avon skin care fan since I was 12. My first Avon memory is during a church trip I took along with some older teenage girls. They were impressed that I was using a skin care regimen at my age, and that made a real impression on me since I looked up to them.

I now enjoy using some of Avon’s newest skin care items. I absolutely love the Avon x The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser and the Avon x The Face Shop The Therapy Oil Blending Cream. I also love the Green Goddess Facial Oil.

Avon’s makeup products are also wonderful for skin at every age. They have foundations, primers, color correctors, face perfectors, you name it. Here’s a link to all the facial beauty products. I use Avon makeup products exclusively, as I’m sure my 2 teammates do as well. Avon has fabulous eye makeups, lipsticks, blushes, mascaras, and more. You can look through my previous posts to find the products that I love and use, and you know I’ll be posting more about favorite makeup items in the future too, so just stick around!

I hope this post helps bring some inspiration to ladies our age, and a realization to younger generations that maintaining your looks is very possible, fun, and easy using Avon products. You’ve just met 3 (very happy to be) Avon Representatives who are here to represent, and to keep the Avon legacy going into the future.

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

Let’s Celebrate Christmas in July!

Are you ready? I know I am!

My Husband and I have been observing a Christmas in July ritual for quite a few years now. We usually watch our favorite Christmas movies together throughout July to lift our spirits during a hot Texas Summer.

This year, we decided to take it one step further. We’re decorating! I got the idea from a lady on IG who was putting up her Christmas tree in June to help cheer things up. We can all certainly use an extra boost of cheer this year, so who’s in?

When I was contemplating our Christmas in July this year, I decided that I’d like to help spread the cheer, and remembered seeing that Avon still had quite a few of their Christmas goodies up and on sale in the Good Buys Category. Can you believe it? They still have Christmas decorations like a Lighted Gingerbread Man, Star and Snowflake lights, special holiday makeup kits/sets, candles, and more at a discounted price. Yay! And I have pictures from my holiday posts of some of the available product, so let’s go!

First up, I found out that there are 2 of the holiday themed candles left. The Pass the Rum Cake Candle and the Mocha Merrymint Candle. I believe this is the very last chance and last Campaign in which we’ll be able to find them since they are no longer listed on my Avon website, but not to worry, I know a way that you can still get one during c.15 (till July 7th).

Sneak Peek: New Vibrant Makeup Colors from Avon x The Face Shop

Sneak Peek C/15, C/16, C/17

Thought you might enjoy a sneak peek at all the new makeup gorgeousness coming up in the next 3 Avon Campaigns.

I’m so in love with all the bright and vibrant makeup colors, how about you?

I will show you these new beauty products in order of release dates. Let’s begin with next week’s upcoming Campaign 15.

New Avon Beauty Products

First up – Birthday’s are the Balm, A nude pout for every party, Lip Crayons. These are made with shea butter for soft, supple lips. They are retractable, and will be available in 6 sheer hint colors that will complement all skin tones. These will be available next Wednesday, June 24th, as will this next new product, Tattoo Station Proof Brow Pomade:

From Avon x The Face Shop

24 hours of waterproof wear. Brows go from soft and subtle to bold and defined in seconds. There are 6 shades to choose from, and each comes with a dual-ended applicator with angled-tip brush and spoolie to apply with precision.

Now on to Campaign 16 new releases (And let me tell you, this is by no means all of the new releases coming out in each of these campaigns. There are a lot more. I’m just showing you the gorgeous make-ups in this blog post.)

Let’s talk Sheer Love…

Sheer Love, Arriving in Avon C/16

These are called Cushion Blush. Have you heard of that? These give you a “dreamy” watercolor look for your cheeks. Look at these gorgeous colors! These are made with a skin-loving water-based formula with hyaluronic acid to instantly boost hydration, and also contains water lily and green tea extracts to leave your skin feeling silky and moisturized. They are buildable sheer-to-medium coverage. Each compact includes a sponge applicator and mirror for on-the-go love. You are to apply these to your cheeks with a tapping motion (avoid wiping). Since they are buildable, you can repeat until your desired look is achieved. Pretty cool, hey? Also being released in C/16 (July 8th) are Cushion Highlighters and Bronzers, so you’ll want to stay tuned for those. The Highlighters will have a pearlescent finish, and the Bronzers will give you a goddess glow.

How about some 3D mascara to finish your look? And it’s waterproof:

Lasting Love Mascara

You’ve seen me rave about Avon’s Love at First Lash Mascara, well, this is Love At First Lash Waterproof Mascara. This is made with lash-hugging heart – flower – and cylindrical- shaped lengthening fibers that lock onto lashes for a lush, voluminous look. This is also made with olive oil and vitamin E to strengthen and condition lashes. So perfect for Summer parties. It is transfer-resistant, clump free, flake free, smudge proof, and waterproof.

Okay — Now it’s getting really exciting and vibrant by the time we get to Campaign 17. You may need to wear your shades! Bringing out the neon colors! Woo!

Neon Rules Lipstick

Whoa! Definitely a super-pop of color! The new Neon Rules Lipstick will be released in 2 colors: Electric Pink and Red Light. I may need both, how about you? These are a limited edition release, so be ready to snag yours when they come on the scene. C/17 will begin July 22nd. I’ll remind you, don’t worry! These are being released at $14.99 each.

And to complete your neon look, Avon is also releasing Write Bright Eye Liner and Electric Lash (Love at First Lash – Yay!) Mascara.

Write Bright Eyeliner and Electric Lash Mascara

These are also limited edition products. The Write Bright Eye Liner will come in 2 colors, Lit Green, and Blazing Blue. I’m thinking Blue for me.

The Electric Lash Mascara will be available in 2 colors as well, Power Purple, and Blue Pop. One of each?

So there you have it. Summer-time makeup gorgeousness coming right up!

Avon Sneak Peek!

Try on Lipstick Colors Virtually from Your Phone!

Question: How do I find my perfect lipstick shade? Answer: Avon’s online Virtual Makeover Tool. Yes, that’s what I said — You can try on lipstick right from your computer or phone! No need to go to a makeup counter, or have tons of lipstick shades in front of you to wipe off and try on another. Avon now has an online Virtual Makeover Tool for that! And it looks very real. Here I am giving it a try:

I tried on all kinds of lipstick shades. And I did so over lipstick I was already wearing. I posted a blog a few days ago with me trying the new Virtual Makeover Tool not wearing any lipstick or eyeshadow, and it worked very well. This time I thought I’d give it a try wearing full makeup.

The lipstick Makeover Tool worked very well except for lighter shades – that’s because I was already wearing Dragonfruit lipstick, so overall I think it did a great job in covering up the shade I was already wearing and replacing it with the virtual lipstick colors. What do you think?

Here’s how my lipstick looked originally:

Yeah! I’d say it did a great job!

Now, for the eyeshadow, I would definitely recommend not wearing any or at least very light eyeshadow when trying them on virtually. The only one that would work over my very dark eyeshadow that I already had on was the bright blue. And of course to find your perfect foundation or eyebrow pencil shade, definitely go all natural.

The online Virtual Makeover Tool is really easy to use. Here’s what you do:

  1. Follow this link. This will take you to my Avon website’s page titled: Get a Virtual Make Over.
  2. Choose which makeup item you’d like to try on. There are products for your lips, eyes, and face.
  3. Click on the product to bring it up. Then click the button that says “Try it On”.
  4. Once you do that, you’ll have to give permission for it to use your computer or phone’s camera.
  5. A live video of you will come up – It’s so fun!
  6. Click on the color/shade of your chosen product that you’d like to try on.
  7. The camera will find the spot where the product needs to go and you will see the product color right there on your gorgeous face in real time.
  8. You can take a picture of yourself wearing a particular shade (like I did). There is a little camera icon on the screen with you when you’re live trying on the makeup colors. Click that. It will show you a countdown 3-2-1 and then take your picture. Make sure to click the “Download” button right next to the camera icon to save it to your phone.
  9. You can take a picture of yourself in every shade that you want to and compare and see which are your favorites.
  10. You can share your pics on IG using the Hashtag #jfaysbeautyblog for a chance to be featured here on Jfay’s Beauty Blog.

Have fun! Share it with your friends! If you have any questions about using the Makeover Tool, feel free to ask. You can always contact me here on the blog or DM me on any of my social media pages. I’ll be happy to help.

Make a Statement without Saying a Word

Makeup by Avon

What kind of statement do you like to make when you present yourself to the world? We are all many personalities (and sometimes many nationalities) rolled into one unique individual, and I think that is so wonderful.

I enjoy a dramatic look, especially with my eye makeup. I always have. I suppose it’s because I have very dark eyes. But I do love my eyeliner.

It’s been a little while since I put on a full face of makeup, and it felt really good! I’ve not been anywhere in a while to present any type of statement about me, but with the arrival of my new Shubra Statement Necklace from Jarlia by Jolina in London (an anniversary present), it gave me a good excuse to get dressed up for a photo shoot.

Shubra Statement Necklace from Jarlia by Jolina

Jolina designs gorgeous African Egyptian jewelries and when I saw this necklace I immediately fell in love. I had been looking for something special to celebrate recently learning of my African ancestry, and this was definitely it for me. It is so gorgeous (dramatic, as I love), and does make a beautiful statement about me.

I had a lot of fun getting all my Avon makeup out again and getting dolled up. I use Avon exclusively for all my skincare and makeup, and I really love it. I am a youthful 55, and I greatly appreciate that Avon helps keep my skin looking great every day, no matter if I am wearing full makeup or going au naturale.

Here is a list of Avon products used for this shoot:

Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser – You have to begin with the very best, and this is the best facial cleanser I’ve ever used. It is rich and moisturizing.

The Therapy Oil Blending Cream – I love this moisturizer. It is made from a 200 year old recipe and includes natural ingredients such as Sandalwood and Avocado. You’ve gotta try it.

Avon True Color Flawless Cream-to-Powder Foundation – I love using this with the little applicator sponge that comes with it. It is not heavy and is long wearing.

Avon True Color Flawless Mattifying Pressed Powder in Translucent

Magix Dust Finishing Powder – I LOVE this stuff! It’s brand new. You use a large powder brush and sweep this all over your face for a natural glow. It’s made with mineral powder like pearls and rubies. I received a compliment the other day that my skin looked glowing. I had used this!

Oh What Fun Mega Makeup Palette – Can you believe this is still available? This is the really cool makeup palette from Christmas time. I used a pretty pink blush from this collection as well as a shimmery light pink and gray eyeshadow. This is on final sale for $25.00. It’s full of all kinds of eyeshadow colors, blushes, lip balms, and a couple of highlighters. It also has makeup brushes. You really should snag one while it’s still there. This is amazing.

Oh What Fun Mega Palette
Oh What Fun Mega Makeup Palette

Avon True Color Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Quad – In Steel Blues. I used the dark Navy eyeshadow as a liner under my lashes. These Quads are on sale for $5.59 each palette.

Mono Pop Eyeshadow Palette – Corals, for a brush of glitteriness on my lids. These palettes will be available soon. Be sure to get on the Wait List.

Ultra Luxe Liner – in Black. Right now you can get the liner plus a sharpener duo for $5.59.

Love At First Lash Mascara – Black. This is my most favorite mascara ever. It goes on so good and is very dramatic. My lashes really show. It washes off easily too. On sale!

Avon True Color Glimmersticks Lip Liner – Pomegranate. This is on Final Sale for $3.99 each.

Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick – Dragonfruit Blush. These are also on Final Sale – $5.99 each.

And there you have it!

I hope you enjoy making your own personal statement about you – who you are, and how you like the world to see you. And I hope that Avon can help you make your own personal statement with all the gorgeous makeup offerings that they have available. There are a lot of new makeup items coming on the scene as well that I’ll be trying out and sharing with you, so I hope you’ll follow here and stay tuned. I appreciate your friendship and you being on this journey with me.

Till next time, stay fabulous, and always follow your joy.

Trying on Makeup with Avon’s new Makeover Tool

Hey! Look who had some fun today!

It’s me – trying on makeup using the new Makeover Tool from Avon.

This was really cool, and really fun.

I only wore base makeup to do this so that I could see the different lipstick and eyeshadow colors on my face.

Here’s a close-up for you to see the lipstick really good.

This was all live and interactive. I thought I would need to take a pic and upload it, but it was live video, real time. Look how well the lipstick sits right on my lips. You can even see the shimmer. This was the Glimmerkiss Liquid Lipstick, and you can see how the real product is going to look when you wear it – gloss and glimmer and all. So awesome!

Now I’m trying on some Glimmershadow in Silver. I thought perhaps I may be too fair for the Silver to show up, but hey, I think I really like it!

Or perhaps a purple?

The Makeover Tool will tell you the name of the shade(s) you’re trying on. And see, I have no lipstick on – the pictures with me with lipstick are all virtual reality, and it looks so real. Here’s a lipstick pic with a more pink tone:

I really like the brighter reds and pinks on me. I tried on all kinds of colors. This was so fun. After seeing my pics, my husband really liked the sparkly Ruby Glimmerkiss Liquid Lipstick on me. I did too.

It’s really cool when you visit the Virtual Makeover Page – You can find it Here. You click on a product that you’d like to try. Then you click Try It On. You will need to give permission for it to take pics on your phone or computer.

Once you see yourself on the live video screen, you can click on the different colors you’d like to try, one at a time. Each color will appear where it’s supposed to – on your eyes or lips or face (if you’re trying foundation tones). Give it a moment to appear and then you’ll see a little camera icon – You can click on that to take your picture with that particular shade or color on. It will show you a countdown clock 3-2-1 and then take your photo. You then click to download the picture onto your phone or computer. This works from both your phone and computer cameras. I used my phone outside as you can see. The lighting was great outdoors for this.

I hope you give it a try – And if you do, I’d love to see your pics! You can use the hashtag #jfaysbeautyblog on IG. That’s where I’ll be posting mine. I may even pick my favorites to share here on my blog. I’ll be sure to tag you in a post on IG so that you will know that you’ve been posted and can come by here and see your mugshot!

Till next time, stay fabuluous!
