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:
• 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.
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.

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.
