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.
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.
Remember to treat yourself well, and do things that make you the happiest,
Your Personal Beauty Consultant and Avon Representative (and Over 50 Beauty Blogger!)
That is a very good question that gets asked very frequently. So, how do you find an Avon Representative in your area?
If you’re in the United States, look no further. You’ve found me!
Things are changing very rapidly at Avon. Gone are the days where you had to find a Representative that was in your neighborhood or office building, etc. in order to place an order and have it delivered personally by your Rep.
Avon is changing with the world and with the times. They are now becoming the leaders in beauty sales innovation. You can shop Avon anytime, from anywhere, and with a Representative that is in your Country. Since I am a U.S. Avon Representative, I am able to be of service to you no matter where you reside in the states.
I offer my services here on my beauty blog, keeping my followers/customers up to date on all the latest Avon news, products, and specials. I am here to answer your Avon product questions and help you find the right products for your specific needs. I also like to surprise my customers with email specials that are “for customers” only specials.
You receive a discount off every product when you shop my Avon store, plus I personally pay your shipping on all orders that are $60+.
Mostly, I love for my customers to have fun, and enjoy their entire experience.
And, one of the newest and funnest ways to shop makeup is with Avon’s Digital Catalog. The new Digital Catalog is is animated and interactive. You can try on makeup virtually and browse all the different colors in real-time video!
See the little camera icons? You click on those to try on the makeup shades via real-time video, and the makeup looks very real. Take a picture of yourself to share too! (P.S. The prices in pink are your discounted price when you shop with me.)
Feel free to contact me here on my Contact Jfay Page, or message me from any of my social media pages. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nice to meet you, and happy to be your U.S. Avon Representative!
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.
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!
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!
Hello everyone! Hope you’ve been enjoying the beginning of your new week.
And speaking of new beginnings… If you’ve been following my blog here, you’ll know about New Avon and all the anticipated and very exciting changes going on right now.
Every day just about, it seems that I’m surprised with happy news. My favorite kind of news! Hooray! That makes life so fun, hey?
The latest news I received was about Avon’s new Perks for Representatives. It is so fabulous. There are special savings on just about everything under the sun. There’s so much to take in. We used to have what was called Avon Advantage. Well, now in our back offices, we can click on Avon Advantage and it takes us to a whole new world of Avon Perks. There are discounts on travel, tickets, entertainment, electronics, automotive (Reps even get a discount on purchasing a new vehicle – like over $3,000.00 off sticker price – Woo!), cell phones, apparel, health and wellness, food, and local discounts.
You are also still eligible for Health Insurance through ICBA, and I wanted to let you know that open enrollment for the Third Quarter will be expiring on September 30th. There are options starting as low as $32.51 a month and they offer dental too. My husband and I are now covered through ICBA. There were no medical questions to answer. I just simply filled out our info, sent in our first payment, and we are now both covered. Easy-peasy.
If you’ve been thinking about a new career, or even a part-time gig and love all things beauty, now is the perfect time to take the leap and join the Avon Nation. It is only a $30.00 start-up investment to begin your dream glam gig. You do not have to purchase an inventory – that is a huge bonus. You receive a free website with your own url (url is free too), Avon pays all of your State sales taxes for you (huge, huge bonus), and you will be doing something that you absolutely love – setting your own hours, working from where ever you want to, whenever you want.
I will share with you some of my personal perks being an Avon Rep that I love. I love that Avon pays me in 2 days for all orders that I receive online. I do not have to wait till the end of a Campaign and collect the monies myself in order to be paid. Avon direct deposits my earnings directly into my bank account (no fees involved) on every order that I receive. I love that my business expenses selling Avon include purchasing makeup to try and also to demo to my friends on Social Media (and in person), candles to try and blog about to my friends here on jfaysbeauty.blog, new perfumes to try and blog about, newly released products to try and blog about, and so on – you get the idea! I love that I can set my own hours, work from my home office and that I have goodie bags that I can hand out in person so that people can look through all the fabulous products in the little brochures (they’re so fun to browse through), and that I have access to affordable samples that people can enjoy. Those samples are invaluable to gaining new customers. I love them myself!
I love Avon Social – it is a game changer when it comes to selling online and especially for posting on Social Media. If you love posting on Social Media, being an influencer, and you love makeup and fashion and goodies for your home – you are a perfect fit for this! And if you’re new to Social Media but still love makeup and fashion stuffs, not to worry, there’s Avon U — It is a fun and free training course to help us all learn more about Social Media, marketing, Avon products and more. And it’s free! There are series of videos that you can watch at your convenience.
I could talk all day actually about all that I love about being an Avon Rep. I have been a Representative for Avon before, and I loved it then, but I am really really loving it now. There’s no comparison. OH — and one of my very favorite things about being a Rep now, is that I can sell online, and not only sell online, but sell to anyone in the U.S. online. Not just in my neighborhood anymore, but anywhere in the U.S. — Can you say GAME CHANGER?!! Doing a happy dance!
Okay gang — I think you have a good idea now of all the goodness that Avon offers its Representatives. It really is a fabulous opportunity.
I will be back tomorrow for the launch of Campaign 21. The theme this time around is Street Smart. Skin Smart. And guess what? 3 new product launches! I just placed an order today and will be demo’ing 2 of these new products – rockin’ those business expenses, right? Haha!
I also wanted to give you a head’s up on the upcoming Campaign 22 that will be in 2 weeks. C22 is the launch Campaign for Avon’s new fragrance, Live Out Loud. I just ordered samples, and I am very excited to announce that my Sample Club Members will be receiving these samples + a brochure this time around. If you’re not yet a Free Sample Club Member, you have 2 weeks time to get signed up and place your first order to activate your membership before the October mailing goes out.
Okay — that’s all for now. I shall sign out and leave you with some words of wisdom from my Uncle Russell ( I call him Uncle Rascal) that he said to me yesterday. “Broaden Your Horizons”. I love that! And I am doing just that. How about you? And I hope you stay fabulous and follow your joy always!
I hope this post finds you having fun and feeling fabulous!
I’ve been having fun myself, and enjoying wearing my new Mattitude Liquid Matte Lipstick.
My Mattitude is Persistent — It’s both my Mattitude lip color choice and my attitude. I am so blessed to be 54 years old and I own it. I have enjoyed my journey this far and still have big dreams and plans for my future.
What is your Mattitude? I cannot wait to see!
And the wait will not be long, since Mattitude will be arriving on my Avon website on August 21st (well, most likely the afternoon of August 20th, but the 21st is the official date. Shhh… : ) I will be sure to let you know as soon as I see it live.
The 8 Mattitude shades include: Ambitious – Resolute – Devoted – Driven – Relentless – Persistent – Tenacious and Resilient, so be ready to show your true colors!
It’s all so exciting! And I’m so grateful to be a part of it – and so can you!

Be sure to sign up for my Free Sample Club while you’re here. My active customers receive a mailing every month of fun goodies. There’s still time to get active before the September mailings go out. When you place your order on my Avon website, be sure to let Avon know that you’d like to receive a free book – they’ll ask upon checkout. The Campaign 19 book is going to be soooo exciting. The launch of Mattitude plus our first smells of Autumn with new candles and a line of body products! You won’t want to miss out on any of this — I hope you get in on all the fun and joys of the season as well as all the new products that will be sure to lift your spirits.
