I have always been a fan of Avon because they are consistent in delivering products fit for every Filipina–whether it be cosmetics, skincare, and fashion. The colors in their palettes match our skin tone perfectly. That is why with Avon, you can never go wrong. You will always be glam and fab!
Since I was also attending an event in the evening, I chose colors that would look great day or night. 🙂 Here’s a step by step tutorial on how I created the COLOR ME AVON look.
The first thing that you must do is clean and prep your face. This is where the basics of skincare comes in. Cleanse, tone, then moisturizer. I always use a headband to keep the hair away from my face when applying makeup.
Next, use a pea-sized amount of BB cream and apply on 5 areas of the face (forehead, nose, chin, left and right cheeks). Then blend using fingertips, sponge, or brush. What I love about the Avon BB cream is how it can also double as a primer. As compared to other BB creams, this one has a matte finish. It also has a great scent!
To hide pimple scars, acne, and other blemishes, use a concealer. Apply on spots that need to be concealed and then blend by tapping fingers lightly on the spots until the concealer has blended and has covered the spots completely.
Next, apply powder to set the BB cream and concealer. Applying powder will also absorb excess oils on skin and thus will create a matte look.
I prefer working my way from top to bottom starting with eyebrows down to the lips. So the next thing on the list is to fill in the brows.
I love this brow powder because it gives the exact shade of brows that I want–not too light nor too dark. The end effect looks natural. Perfect for days and nights when you do not want to appear too harsh with overly defined eyebrows. This IN2IT eyebrow powder is unique because it has 3 different shades. Just brush over the 3 colors to get the most natural brown which looks great on the brows.
Now here comes the fun and tricky part: applying the eye shadow. Quads are totally my favorites! It has different colors for the brow bone, inner eyelid, outer eyelid, and crease.
I applied the lavender shade (#1) on the brow bones and inner corners of the eyes as a highlighter to illuminate the eyes. Then I applied the pink berry shade (#2) on the inner eyelid and the purple flip shade (#3) on the outer eyelid. Lastly, I applied vibrant violet shade (#4) on the crease. The end effect is a nice gradient of purple that matches any kind of skin tone very well.
After applying the eye shadow, it’s time to apply an eyeliner. I always use a black eyeliner because it makes my eyes pop out nicely. I also make sure that it is waterproof so that I won’t have to worry about looking like a panda when it suddenly rains or when I cry (i.e. while watching a movie or reading a book). When applying eyeliner, it is essential to have steady hands. It takes a lot of practice to be able to apply it well without any mishaps. 🙂 For this instance, I just simple apply the liner close to the upper lashes. When combined with a good mascara, the overall effect is voluminous and longer lashes. 🙂
Next, curl eyelashes first before applying mascara. Curling of lashes is done in three steps. Curl at the base, curl at the middle, and curl near the top with curler pointing inwards. This will create a naturally curled lashes look.
Then it’s time to apply mascara. I am so obsessed with mascaras because I have short lashes. I love mascaras that make my lashes look fuller and longer. To apply mascara, start from the base and wiggle your way to the top of the lashes. This ensures that all lashes are covered. You can apply two coats if you want.
I am totally raving this mascara from Avon. It made my lashes look perfect! See the difference:
And then this is the one with mascara applied to both left and right eyelashes:
It has no clumping of eyelashes and it made my eyes look really beautiful. I totally love this mascara! I found my perfect match with Avon! 🙂
Now it’s time to apply blush on the cheeks. Since my eyes are already heavy with color, Avon’s peach blush is just perfect. Simply apply blush on the apples of the cheeks and blend towards the hairline.
The blush gives just the right amount of glow.
And finally, it’s time to apply the lipstick! I chose this lipstick from Avon in hibiscus shade because it has a nice pink color that matches the eye shadow that I used. The lipstick glides on smoothly and colors the lips evenly. It smells good too!
And here’s the final look:
Perfect look for a night out. 😉
That’s it everyone. 🙂 Let me know what you think of this look. ♥
