It’s almost that time here in Canada! Back To School for the kids! I used to LOVE this time of year, and thought of it as more of a “new beginning”, or a “fresh start” for a lot of things for me. I called it my Back To Mom time which was needed after a lazy and fun summer with little Marky. This was the time of year that I was more successful at keeping resolutions of all kinds-from diet and exercise, organizing resolutions, and of course-makeup ones!
So how about I show you a new and fresh makeup look with some Avon products that will get you looking all spiffy and Back To Mom in a flash? I don’t know about you, but I always wanted to look polished when I’d drop off Marky at school, just in case I’d be asked to help out with something and have to stay. In fact, that’s kind of how I got back into working after staying home after I had Marky. Chemistry jobs were few and far between after those years at home, so volunteering at her school was how I got my foot in the door and eventually got a job as a Science Tech in the schools which I loved it! I loved working with kids of all ages to get them excited about science!
First step in your Back To Mom look of course, is to even out your complexion with Avon’s Ideal Flawless BB Cream. Check out my original review HERE. It’s one of the best BB Creams around!
Next let’s get some fast and pretty eyes going here! Avon has a new fall True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Savage Beauty($10 CDN) that’s part of the Avon New Burgundy Fall 2013 Color Collection and it’s REALLY great! This is another one of the new quads, but the shades are nicely pigmented and blend really nicely in this one!
Take that matte taupey brown shade and apply it all over your lid with a fluffy brush like the MAC 217:
Then, take that bright turquoise shade and apply it on your bottom lash line with a soft brush-you want a nice, diffused look instead of a precise line.
HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE because Avon’s Supershock Gel Eye Liners($10 CDN) are finally available in Canada! This is the shade Aqua Pop and it’s INTENSE baby:
Avon’s Supershock Gel Eye Liners are made with 20% liquid-gel and they are super soft, super pigmented and MAN do they stay put, even on the water line!
Take that Aqua Pop Supershock Gel Liner, and apply it to your water line, and then take a small smudger brush and smudge it to get a really great pop of colour for your new fall look. You’re gonna make incorporating colour into your makeup a fall resolution, right? RIGHT!
Add some mascara, and your eyes are ready!
Easy, colourful, and on trend too! You go mom!
To help your summer glow last longer, Avon’s New Glow Marbleized Bronzers($15 CDN) will do exactly that!
These are so nice! Beach Glow is on the left and it’s a peachy bronze, and Natural Glow on the right is just that-natural, bronzy goodness!
They are smooth, soft and finely milled, pigmented enough to give you a gorgeous glow on the cheeks! Use the Avon Glow Bronzing Brush($5.99 CDN) with nylon bristles to apply to cheeks and high points of the face to make you look like the mom with the most gorgeous skin ever!
Red lips are always huge for fall, so how about an “I’ll wear red lipstick” for another fall beauty resolution? Avon’s Totally Kissable Lipstick in Racy Red($9.99 CDN) fits the bill:
This is one of my favourite Avon Lipstick formulas! Sheer yet buildable colour and a glossy finish that’s moisturizing. No bleeding and lasts a good while, and fades beautifully.
Now, if that true blue red is too much for you, just blot it down like I did so you get a softer, more wearable look!
That hand cream up in that first pic? Do yourself a HUGE favour and get it! It’s the new Skin So Soft Aroma+Therapy Calming Hand Cream ($4.99 CDN) and it has this touchplex scent technology, which means you can reactivate the scent throughout the day when you rub your hands together! NEAT, hey? With Argan Oil to moisturize your hands, I call this my “SERENITY NOW” hand cream and so will you! The lavender scent will be calming and comforting on those stressful morning drives to school. MAN I hated those-especially once it started to snow. YIKES-who said snow? I sure hope I didn’t jinx anything…:)
And last but not least, put all your new Avon fall makeup essentials in this Avon Foundation Rose Zippered Case($6.00 CDN):
100% of the net proceeds from the Avon Foundation Rose Zippered Case will go to breast cancer research, awareness, and support services.
And there you go! Your new Back To Mom Look with Avon! All of these products will be available in September(some are already available) from your local Avon Rep by calling 1-800-265-AVON, or by ordering online at www.avon.ca.
