Helloo! Who’s ready for a little Glimmer glamour in Vixen, and perhaps a little Magix glow? Yay! Me too, let’s go!
For some reason I’ve really been in the mood for Navy. It’s not a color that I’ve traditionally worn a lot, but I’ve noticed myself leaning more and more towards the dark blue in lieu of black, and I’m loving navy paired with gold. May be my go-to colors this fall. And, with that being said, I knew I wanted to try out Avon’s new fmg Glimmer Eyeshadow Quad in Vixen, which has beautiful shades of (greyish) blue. This will be my 4th fmg eyeshadow quad to try. I’m really enjoying them all.
Someone needs some color, hey? Vixen is perfect for the look I’m going for with the dark gray, steely blues, and silver sparkle. Even though I’m going with gold accessories, the silver will look great as a finishing sparkle highlight on my lids.
I used all the colors in the Vixen palette, including the dark gray as a liner over my pencil liner. I used the lighter blue/gray in my crease area, then used the darker blue over the liner area again and to darken the outer edges of my eyes. I applied the silver glimmer on my lids afterward for an extra highlight of shimmer.
I always love to finish my eye makeup looks with my very favorite mascara, Love at First Lash. It is the best mascara I’ve ever used, and I will continue to use this one always. It has great coverage in one coat, and superb flair with 2. It does not flake, and it washes off easily. There is also a waterproof version, if you’re interested in a waterproof wear mascara.
I promised you some Magix too, right?
Well, here you go! After applying my blush and lipstick, I like to finish my makeup look with some Magix Dust finishing powder. This is made from ground minerals and always gives my skin a really pretty translucent glow. It is available in 3 shades. The shade I use is Translucent Fair – Light, and it looks like you will need to get on a wait list for this shade right now. It’s well worth it. I always receive compliments that my skin looks so flawless and radiant. This loose finishing powder helps blur pores and fine lines without appearing cakey, like an invisible veil.
So, there you have it — My Vixen Magix trick, I mean, look.
To complete my Vixen Magix look, I fixed my hair, and accessorized with jewelry from Avon.
Then Hubby took me out to dinner – Yay! And I did receive compliments on my jewelry while out. Thank you Avon for always helping me shine my best light everywhere I go.
I hope this get ready with me feature was helpful and fun for you. It’s amazing how makeup can make such a difference in how we look and feel. Every bit makes a big difference, and adding the finishing touches makes it all complete.
Be sure to get on the list for the Magix Dust so you’ll be first to know when it’s available again. Avon will send you an email.
Till next time, stay fabulous, and and follow your joy!
