Welcome to my Makeup Room!

Hello everyone, and welcome to my Makeup Room!

This is where I report to you from, and do my makeup photography.

As you can see, I enjoy using the products that I love to share with you.

Some of my Favorite Avon Makeup Goodies

I was just talking with my sister last evening about getting my Makeup Room spruced up and ready for more in-depth photography, and told her, “You know, I’m about to turn 56 and I’m setting up to do even more makeup photography and blogging.” That’s really amazing. It just dawned on me – my age. I am very thankful that at 55 I’m still enjoying makeup and wanting to look my best – and to keep learning new things in the makeup field. It’s never to early or too late to celebrate our beauty, to appreciate it, and to work to preserve and highlight what we’ve got. I so admire those that are even more mature than I, and seeing them still shining in all their glory, and not giving up at any certain age on being the best that they can be, and that’s what I strive for as well, and to hopefully inspire others along the way.

Check out what’s coming up – I’m so excited!! A Parisian Holiday!

I welcome you to share in my makeup and beauty journey. Let’s see what kind of (good) trouble we can get into. Have some fun, and some laughs, and perhaps some gorgeous results too!

I told you I’ve been working on my eyebrow game. I’m getting pretty good at it, and plan to share what I’ve been learning with you very soon. I have (4) different products that I’ve been trying out, so stay tuned! I’ll also be sharing with you again my experience using the new Cashmere Complexion Makeup Foundation and Concealer. The Powder Foundation is to die for ladies, it covers so well, and yet looks so fresh. I am loving how my makeup looks even more now than ever before.

Okay, I’m off for now, but you know I’ll be back soon with more fabulousness to share with you.

Using Avon’s Virtual Makeover Tool From My Phone

Trying on Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow in Ultramarine – Glitter

Hey everyone! Happy weekend vibes!

I’ve been telling you about Avon’s new Virtual Makeover Tool and how to use it, so I thought I’d play around with it again and show you how it looks/works from my phone.

Trying on the new FMG Ink High-Gloss Lip Lacquer in Red Symphony

It really is very easy to use – and super fun. You can see that I was trying on some Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow and some of the new FMG Ink High-Gloss Lip Lacquer shades. I did this right over makeup that I had on, so yeah, it’s really impressive, and looks pretty realistic to me, especially the lipstick. You would think that I was actually wearing these shades of lipsticks in my pics, but take a look at the first one where I’m trying on the Glimmerstick Eyeshadow and you’ll see the shade of lipstick I was actually wearing. More of a neutral tone.

Trying on the new FMG Ink High-Gloss Lip Lacquer in Pink Of Me

The Virtual Makeover Tool covered up my actual lipstick really great and came through brilliantly with the shades I was wanting to try. I do advise, however, that you may want to try this with no lipstick or eyeshadow on, but as you can see, you can try on makeup from anywhere and at anytime. Just think how handy this will be when you’re trying on a new outfit. You can find the perfect makeup shades to go with your new outfit! Awesome!

Just look for the Try It On Button when you’re browsing my Avon website, or go directly to the Digital Catalog Page and scroll down to the Virtual Makeover Tool and the Shade Finder Tool.

When you see the Try It On Button on a makeup item, just click it and it will bring up your camera. It will show you the different shades to try on. You just click on the shade you’d like to try – hold still a moment – it will position the makeup color for you to see. You can click on the little camera icon to take a picture of yourself. It will give you a countdown clock from 3 -2 -1 to pose. You can then download the picture to your phone!

Try on as many makeup shades as you’d like of each product, and see how fabulous you look in each color!

I hope you have fun and enjoy the experience as much as I do!

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.

Steel Blues and Holiday Dream in Color Eyeshadow Palette Sneak Preview

Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad Steel Blues

Hello everyone!

Let’s talk eyeshadows today!

I love trying different colors, although my default setting is usually plums (like my lipstick choices), but I do enjoy a pop of blue, so I decided to get the Avon True Color Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Quad in Steel Blues and give it a try.

I really like this palette. The tones go really well with my dark brown eyes. Number 1 is a nice Cream color, very neutral, so a great coverage right under the brow area. Number 2 is a really pretty silvery blue’ish gray. It’s a shimmery look. Number 3 is a medium gray, and Number 4 is a dark navy blue color.

Here are Avon’s How-To Instructions for application, by number:

TO USE

• Lightest shade (1) goes on the brow bone

• Accent shade (2) goes in the inner corner

• Medium shade (3) goes in the outer corner

• Darkest shade (4) goes on the lash lines

Follow this Link to find the Steel Blue Eyeshadow Quad (#528-781) plus all the other Avon Eyeshadow Quad options. Hover over the little Eyeshadow Icons and it will show you each palette on the larger Quad pic to your left. It’s really cool. (P.S. They’re on special right now for $5.29!)

And here I am wearing my Steel Blues Eyeshadow. I used the Number 4 dark navy color as an eyeliner. One side of the applicator has a pointy tip, so it’s very easy to line with. I do also wear eyeliners, but this color has a great stand-out pop of color on its own, as you can see. I used the Number 1 cream color right under my brow, and actually all the way down to my lid, then the Number 2 silvery shimmer color in my mid-eye area and the Number 4 navy to line and also bring out the edges of my eye lid area and then blended upward with the silvery color. I didn’t use the Number 3 gray color with this look, but I’ll most likely use it when I go for a more plum-type palette. Since I was wearing black and white, I wanted to stick with the navy and silvery tones.

It’s fun to mix and match between the Avon Eyeshadow palettes. Sometimes I stay within one color palette, and sometimes I mix in between several. It just depends on the colors I’m wearing and my mood. How about you?

And now for that sneak peek I promised you!

It’s getting so exciting – as if things have not been exciting enough in Avon Land, but I’m already receiving glimpses of holiday goodness that is soon coming our way. Hooray!!

Coming up in Campaign 23, the theme is “Live Your Best Life, Every day’s a holiday!” It is filled with holiday themed limited edition items that are so fun and fabulous. I’ll go into more detail about it all soon, but I thought I’d share the Limited Edition Dream in Color Eye Palette with you on today’s eyeshadow themed post.

Dream in Color Eye Palette Coming Soon

Look at all of those gorgeous colors! So bright and so shimmery! That’s a definite holiday makeup must-have. It’s described as a vision of beautiful possibilities with 16 versatile shades. Looks like it will list at $15.00. Along with that there is the Limited Edition I Am Flawless Brush Set. This will have four pro brushes to get holiday-ready on the go, it says. It will include the purple pouch with a zipper closure. This set will list at $20.00. These would make fabulous gifts as well. Look how pretty those brushes are.

And there’s a lot more! I know, I know, you just have to stay tuned! Wait till you see the cute little Own the Dance Floor (disco ball) Lip Balm.

Okay, I’ve teased you enough! Haha! I will close for now, but I do promise to return with more Avon fabulousness, and I leave you with always stay fabulous yourself, and always follow your joy, well wishes.

The Avon A Box for Campaign 13

The Avon A Box $10.00 with $40.00 Purchase

Hello! Happy Wednesday and Happy Campaign 13!

I wanted to introduce you to the new A Box for our newest campaign – The Everything I Want A Box. This one is filled with everything I like for sure!

First we have my FAVORITE Mascara – Love at First Lash. I’m a huge fan of this mascara. It looks great with just one application, but 2 applications is fabulous! It stays on great and comes off easily. Perfection!

Next is the Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliner in Blackest Black. I’m in love with this product too! It goes on so smooth and easily – like a liquid eyeliner – I was so surprised and impressed. I can apply my eyeshadow first, and this still glides right on. I like to sometimes put a little eyeshadow right on top of the liner – like a sparkly blue and it really enhances my look. My Daughter In Law just complimented me on my eyeliner a couple of weeks ago, and that’s what I had done. It sets it really well and makes it stand out.

Then we have Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in a NEW shade, Sparkling Rose. I’ve not tried this shade, but it looks pretty close to the one I do wear. The Nourishing Lipstick is fabulous. Makes my lips feel really good and stays well, especially when I pair it with my Avon True Color Lip Liner.

Finally we have Avon Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel in Dazzle Pink. Very pretty and a great way to complete your entire look!

So – this $37.00 value can be yours for only $10.00 with any $40.00 purchase – how about that? I sound like a car salesman! Haha! But it really is a terrific offer and this would certainly make a great gift idea.

Be sure to scroll down the page and Join the Mailing List. You’ll get 10% off your next order! Yay!

I hope you enjoy looking through the virtual Campaign 13 Avon Book as well. It’s so fun, and very easy to browse. When you follow this link, you’ll see the Campaign 13 Book plus other brochures. Just click on which book or brochure you’d like to look through and then you just click the forward or back arrows to turn the pages. When you see a product you’d like to purchase, just click on it and the product goes in your shopping cart. How cool is that?

Happy Avon shopping everyone, and I’ll be back soon with more fun stuffs for you! Jfay
