Quick Tip: Quick Makeup Touch-Up

You know, as you’re going out during this holiday season, there’s bound to be some sneezing or nose-blowing going on. I know.. that’s not a very glamorous subject to speak about, but hey, it happens to all of us, and this did happen to me as I was getting ready. I had just applied my makeup, and yep, a sneezing fit hit. With our Texas temperatures roller-coasting from the 80’s to the 40’s and back and forth, my sinuses do not know what’s up most of the time. 🙂 But anyway, this had me reaching for my Cashmere Compact Powder Foundation for a much needed red nose touch-up. This works so well since it is both a foundation and a powder. Just a quick glide over and it covers right back up with no need for extra powder, so this is a handy little compact to take out with you for any touch-ups, plus if you’re traveling it is an all-in-one easy full coverage foundation makeup. I love this compact so much. I use this (dry) with the liquid formulation of this same line for a great flawless finish, and I also use it alone (with a dampened sponge) for a quick and easy full coverage application. It is not cakey in the least. It is like magic to me.

My shade is C110. Click on “Try This On” under the product picture to find your perfect shade.

Worth every single penny…. period.

Cheers and happy touch-ups!

Beauty Therapy: Perk-Me-Up Makeup Makeover

Ever had one of those days – or weeks? You can see that I certainly have. I am now on the road to recovery, thank goodness, but it’s been a very trying time for your ol’ Jfay here. I caught some type of bug on a recent road trip and it really took it’s toll on me. But in my always fighting fashion, as soon as I was feeling a bit better, and took a look at myself, I was like, “You need to pull yourself together, girlfriend!”. No doubt….

And you know what? It made me feel better. There’s just something about pulling it together and getting made up that changes my whole demeanor. How about you? No matter the situation – getting over an illness, inclement weather days, lock-downs, just whatever. When I’m feeling low, and looking even lower, it’s always great to take some time to pep myself up.

Once I made up my mind that I was ready to pull myself together, I first began with my skin. I of course was able to still wash and moisturize (barely..), but I used my Isa Knox Polisher and Collagen Booster Serum Ampules the night before to help my skin look better. I love this stuff so much. You’ll have to check out my blog post about this dynamic duo.

So, now time to get all prettied up! After washing my face, I then moisturized with my favorite moisturizer Physiogel Moisture Therapy, and knew that my skin was going to need some help in the brightness department, so I also applied VDL Lumilayer Primer Fresh for a bit of luster and more healthy radiance.

Next to foundation:

As you can see, I love my Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation. I first apply it with a damp sponge for full coverage, and then I go back over it with the dry sponge that comes with the compact to set and finish. It works just like a foundation (damp) and a setting powder (dry). There is great coverage without looking cakey or overly made up. There, already looking better. I use the C110 Cheesecake shade.

Okay! Let’s get something going on with those eyes.

Tattoo Station Brow Pencil and Ultra Luxury Eye Liner

For my brows I used the Tattoo Station Brow Pencil in Dark Gray, and the Ultra Luxury Eye Liner in Black. That’s already starting to bring my features back to life now. I knew I was still in there somewhere!

Now let’s really add some color back to my face, beginning with some eyeshadow. I have to have eyeshadow.

Looks like I jumped ahead a step and put on some blusher first. I’ll show you that in just a minute.

But for my eyes, I chose the Avon Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Qaud in Purple Haze. There are 10 Quads to chose from, and they’re curated in shades that go very well together for easy application. I thought a pop of purple would go well with my shirt, and I like wearing a dark gray right around my eye to help accentuate my brown eyes.

Let’s put some color on those lips!

I chose to wear Avon’s True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Dragonfruit Blush which is very very pretty, but a little bright for the pink in my shirt, so I topped that with Avon True Color Lipstick in Frostiest Mauve. Perfect! The True Color Lipsticks are on Final Sale it looks like. So if you’d like to get some Frostiest Mauve for yourself, better get it while it’s still available. Avon is adding a lot of new lipstick formulas, which is very exciting, but I’ll miss some of my favorites.

Okay, for my blusher and mascara.

fmg True Love Multi Palette and Love at First Lash Mascara

I just blogged about these two products actually. The (for Valentine’s Day) fmg True Love Multi Palette, and Love at First Lash Mascara.

The True Love Multi Palette is so cute and filled with 4 shimmery colors that can be used on both your cheeks and eyes. I wanted to try it out on my cheeks. I just kind of swirled the colors together and applied to my cheeks, forehead, and around my lower chin area. I really like the way it made my skin look more luminous, and certainly like I had healthy color back in my face. I’m really pleased with it, and glad I got myself this palette. I do not know how long it will be around since it was just released with the Valentine’s goodies, so if you’re interested you may want to snag one now while you can.

And my MOST favorite mascara – Love at First Lash. I couldn’t do without this. It really makes my lashes stand out with little effort on my part. I do not like to curl my lashes, and the Love at First Lash Mascara doesn’t seem to care. It does it’s job and makes my lashes stand out with just one coat. Two coats are really popping.

And here I am — feeling (and hopefully looking) like myself again.

I love my Avon beauty products. Jfay

It truly is amazing – the power of skincare and makeup.

Everything I use now for my skincare and makeup is Avon. I am not only a Representative, but a very devoted customer. Since going in all Avon, I really feel that it has been very transformative to me, for both my skin and my looks.

I love the ease at which I can use my Avon cosmetics and makeup. I like to look great, but not have to take 10 hours to get ready with so many layers, steps, and such. Know what I mean? Simple, easy, and very fine products.

Okay gang, I’m off for now. Hoping to feel better and better every day now. And this little skincare and makeup boost was just what I needed to help me go further in that direction.

I hope you take time to fix yourself up and feel fabulous too, no matter what the situation. It’s great therapy! Hey, there ya go – Beauty Therapy!

Perk-Me-Up Makeup Makeover – Over 50 Makeup Ideas and Inspiration

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!

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!
