Hello gang! It certainly does begin with a great foundation.
We have now arrived at our final segment in the Flawless Skin Makeover Series. If you missed parts one and two, here are the links to those posts so that you can get caught up.
Flawless Skin Makeup Look Part 1: Cashmere Complexion
Flawless Skin Makeup Look Part 2: Skincare Before Makeup
For this segment, Part 3, I will show you what I use to give my face a radiantly youthful glow. And, since all of Avon’s makeup will be hugely discounted (up to 50% off) in their Annual Makeup Sale (C.22, beginning Sept. 29th), I thought I’d show you all the products I use to complete my look.
The first thing I always do after applying my foundation, is the brows.
Avon’s new Tattoo Station Proof Brow Pencil is my favorite go-to, must-have pencil for my eyebrows. It goes on so easily and has a light touch. It is a cream-to-powder pencil so it does not create harsh pencil lines. You can see how it beautifully fills in my brows. I am always truly amazed at the transformation I can easily and quickly achieve using this Tattoo Station Brow Pencil. And bonus, it’s waterproof. I was at my hair stylist just a while back and she accidently splashed a little water on my forehead area. I was momentarily concerned about my brows washing off – haha!, but alas, they were just fine. So, yeah, waterproof, thank goodness. This brow pencil is listed for $7.00 in my Avon store. Original price is $10.00 (C.22 (Sept. 29th) sale price will be $5.59). There are 6 shades to choose from. My shade is Dark Gray. Love it! Okay, next, we’re ready to apply eyeshadow and lipstick.
You can see that I love a dramatic eye, so I’m definitely loving Avon’s new Glimmer Eyeshadow Quads. I own 4 of them now. The one I’m demonstrating for this look is called Vixen. It has a glimmery silver, a couple of glimmery steel grays, and a dark gray. I did a demo of this eyeshadow palette just a while back using mainly the bluish-gray tones, but this time I only used the silver and dark gray, so I’ve been able to achieve 2 different eyeshadow looks from this one palette already. Earlier this week I used the Vixen palette plus a shimmery gold from the Goddess palette for this Fall look. Navy is on trend for Fall this year. So excited for that.
The fmg Glimmer Eyeshadow Quads are listed in my Avon store for $11.99. Original price is $15.00. Sale price in C.22 will be $9.99 per palette.
And for my lipstick, I’m wearing Avon’s Glimmer Satin Lipstick in Hibiscus. This lipstick is so awesome. It’s light and creamy, and also has great coverage and vibrant colors. For my Hocus Pocus look I’m wearing the shade Wildrose.
These are listed for $8.49, original price is $11.00. Sale price in C.22 will be $6.79.
And now the finishing touches to my Flawless Skin Makeup Look.
To complete my makeup look and give my face a youthful radiant glow, I’ve been using Avon’s True Love Multi Palette. There are 4 gorgeous shimmery shades in this palette. I just blend them together and sweep across my cheeks, forehead and jawline areas. This palette is now on final sale for $16.00, original price was $32.00. If you happen to miss this particular palette, Avon now has fmg Color of Love Glow Beads Illuminating Powder that can be used for a glowing complexion as well. These are priced at $24.00, original price is $30.00, and will be $19.19 in C.22.
And for the piece de resistance and my secret weapon for a glowing flawless complexion – Magix Dust Finishing Powder. I cannot brag enough about this wonderful wonder powder. It’s made from crushed minerals. It’s very light, it’s actually light diffusing, it blurs pores and fine lines, and helps control shine. This gives my face an overall glow. I receive a lot of compliments about my skin, and you see how it begins. It’s not easy for me to show myself without makeup, but I believe the pictures can show you much more than I can just simply tell you.
Avon takes me from this to this, very easily, very simply, because their products are truly fantastic.
The Magix Dust Finishing Powder is listed for $13.99, original price is $17.00. Sale price in C.22 will be $11.19. The shade I’m wearing is Translucent Fair-Light.
And of course, as always, my favorite mascara is Love at First Lash. This is my favorite mascara ever. It is available in a water proof formulation as well. It is listed for $11.99, original price is $15.00, and will be listed for $9.99 in C.22.
We cannot forget Cashmere Complexion Longwear Foundation. It is listed for $24.50, original price is $32.00. In C.22 it will be $19.99. And Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation. It is listed for $30.00, original price is $36.00. In C.22 it will be listed for $24.00. I cover these 2 fabulous foundations in Part 1 of this series: Cashmere Complexion.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this Flawless Skin Makeup Look Makeover journey. I’ve enjoyed sharing my beauty routine with you.
Be sure to stay tuned for Campaign 22’s huge makeup sale. It’s a great time to get re-stocked with fresh makeup for the Fall and try some new colors in lipstick and eyeshadows too.
Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy, always!
