Avon Love, and Family Stories

After recently posting about Avon family traditions and my first memories of using Avon skincare from an early pre-teen age, I’ve been blessed to have some of my customers (whom I call friends) share their stories with me, and also a friend who was very excited about her Avon purchase shared a pic of her beauty haul, so I thought I’d share all of this love and fabulousness with you.

In the spirit of sharing Avon family stories, I have another fond memory from the 1990’s when my Son was very young. I sold Avon back then as well, and he and I would go door to door throughout our neighborhood. One of my neighbors still speaks of meeting us for the very first time when he and I came by to visit and leave an Avon book. Very fun and fond memories.

My friend Phyllis shared this with me on IG:

Like you, I grew up with Avon too, as my Mom was an Avon Lady and went door to door selling it!

I think that’s so wonderful that she has a memory of her Mom being an “Avon Lady”. That’s definitely what we were called back in the day.

Here are a couples of notes I received from my friend Mary via email. These melted my heart…

I couldn’t resist the Mini Lipstick Kit. When I was little (awhile ago, as I’m 69!), maybe about 6 or 7, my mother sold Avon, and she had these little sample lipsticks—a tiny ‘tube,’ about an inch high, with about 1/3” of lipstick. She gave me some, and I absolutely loved them. The colors! That clinched, then and there, my life-long love of lipstick and cosmetics. So there was no question about my ordering those mini lipsticks!

Apart from the ones she gave me, I used to love to just sit and look at all the colors in her collection of little lipstick samples for her ladies. And I remember going with her to deliver orders, with her all dressed up in her suit (this was the 50s!). I thought she looked so beautiful.

I love being reminded of that!

That is so awesome, and I am truly honored to now be their Avon Representative and help carry on the tradition and beauty products that we all love so much.

And speaking of Avon beauty product love. Check out this beauty haul that my friend Sue recently received!

All this for $60.30! There is another eye shadow hidden in there (total of 2). LOVE it all! Thank you Jfay!

That’s so awesome! Thank you Sue!

I truly love hearing your Avon stories, and seeing your Avon pics, and I hope to hear and see more. Feel free to share them with me. I’d love to share more of them here on my blog as well.

Quick Reminder: Avon’s Lipstick (and Makeup) Sale Event is Almost Over

Hey Gang!

I wanted to be sure to stop in with a quick reminder that Avon’s Lipstick and Makeup Sales Event is nearing the end. I hope you do not miss out on all this fabulousness.

Avon released several Limited Edition Lipsticks just for this occasion, at $2.99 each, and they are only available during this Campaign, so I urge you to at least take a look so that you do not let this opportunity pass you by.

I just placed my order, and the shade of lipstick that I was wanting was already gone. So, yeah, that’s another reason to stop on by. Some of the lipsticks are already sold out. I did manage to snag a shade similar, so I’m very happy about that, plus if you read my recent blog post, Avon has all makeup items on deep discount as well, so I was able to snag some other items that I’ve wanted to try. I hope you do too. This is the perfect time to shop for Fall makeup colors.

Here is the direct link to the Makeup and Lipstick Sale Category.

Happy shopping! See you soon!

Before and After Makeover: Flawless Skin Makeup Look Part 3: A Radiant Finish

Before and After Makeover: Flawless Skin Makeup Look.  Jfays Beauty Blog
It all begins with a great foundation

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!

Before and After Makeover: Flawless Skin Makeup Look Part 1: Cashmere Complexion

Oh, you know you’ve still got it! And with the help of some wonderful friends, we can still show it!

When I speak of friends, it’s our little makeup helpers that can really make a huge difference in how we present our beautiful selves to the world.

I am doing this before and after makeover series at the age of 56, showing my no makeup natural self, so that I can hopefully encourage you to look and feel your very best, always, no matter your age. Hey, if I can do it, then definitely, so can you!

I will tell you right away before getting started, that I prefer an easy skincare and makeup routine. I do not like to take a million steps to get myself put together and ready to go, so if you’re like me, you may really relate to my particular style of beauty routine and products that provide the coverage I require, perfectly and easily.

You ready? Let’s go!

This is a 3 part series. Part 1: Cashmere Complexion Foundations, Part 2: Skincare Before Makeup Application, Part 3: Completing the Makeup Look for a Radiant Finish

I know parts 1 and 2 are backwards, but I didn’t think you’d appreciate looking at me through one complete series without any makeup, so I completed my foundation first then went back to show my skincare products and share my routine.

Let’s chat Cashmere Complexion Longwear Foundation.

I just told you that I do not like to take a million steps to put myself together, so I really look for a foundation that has great coverage so that my skin looks flawless and gorgeous in 1 step. Cashmere Complexion does that for me. I normally use the Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation only, but decided to give the liquid formulation a try, and I really love it. I’m still using the Compact Powder Foundation as well, you’ll see in minute.

I really like the application wand. I just dot it all over (my cleaned and moisturized face – I cover that in Part 2), and then distribute and blend with a dampened sponge.

You can see that it gives me full coverage in just one sweep. My skin tone is evenly balanced. All my ruddiness is eased immediately. This is a very light formula. It doesn’t feel like I have anything on my skin. It’s really beautiful and fresh feeling.

Here is Avon’s official description:

Get cashmere-soft skin that looks as effortlessly beautiful as you do. Available in 30 matte shades to suit a wide range of skin tones and undertones, this liquid foundation visibly blurs pores and lines for 24 hours of complexion perfection. 1 fl. oz.

BENEFITS
• 24 hours of comfortable, breathable wear
• Full, flexible coverage with a soft-focus matte finish
• Visibly blurs pores and fine lines for a smoother complexion
• Soft-focus and shine-absorbing qualities help maintain a smooth matte finish
• With antioxidant botanical extracts, artichoke and butterfly lavender (non-GMO)
• Soft-coated pigments comfortably hug skin, providing maximum coverage and lasting wear
• Water-resistant
• Ideal for all skin types
• Vegan
• Fragrance-, paraben-, sulfate- and phthalate-free

I use shade Shortcake (C) #715-466. There are color charts to help you find your perfect shade based on your skin’s undertone – Cool, Warm, or Neutral, plus your skin color – Light, Medium, Dark.

Now, after I apply my Longwear Foundation, I always like to set with a powder, and there is none better (in my opinion), than my dear friend Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation.

I love this so much! And you know what? I really like using the combination of the Longwear Liquid along with the Compact Powder Foundation as a great finishing touch. This can be worn as a foundation (damp or dry) alone, so it is not flaky or dry, and it has awesome coverage on its own, so hey, super flawless looking skin is a very achievable end result – and very quickly too.

If I’m in an extra big hurry, I just grab my Powder Foundation and give my face a quick once over and I look great to go.

Here is Avon’s official description of this amazing Compact Powder Foundation:

Powdered luxury. Create a flawless, silky-smooth complexion with this weightless 2-in-1 powder foundation, featuring a luxuriously soft formula with a long-lasting soft-focus matte finish. With amino-acid-coated pigments to control shine and visibly smooth skin, and vegan collagen to keep skin looking supple and fresh. Can be applied wet or dry, as a foundation or setting powder with buildable medium-to-full coverage. Mirror compact and sponge for seamless touch-ups.

I use (C) 110 in this formulation. There are also color charts here for you to easily find your perfect shade.

I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy flawless skin foundation makeover with great assist from my Cashmere Complexion friends, and that you’ll stay tuned for the next 2 parts in this Before and After Makeover Series on Jfay’s Beauty Blog, for a flawless skin makeup look.
