It’s our crash course in all the makeup must-do’s and how-to’s! We’ll give you everything you need to get all A’s in Avon Beauty... in 10 easy lessons!
1 READY, SET...GLOW!
Lightly dust on Transparent Glow over any other Mineral Foundation shade to set your makeup... and enhance your radiance.
2 LAYER YOUR COLOR
Mineral eyeshadows are perfect for layering because the loose powdery pigments are so featherlight. Try using three shades to build color and intensify the effect.
Think about your skin’s needs and select the foundation formula that makes sense.
DRY Generally mature skin. Often appears dry, thirsts for moisture, feels tight after cleansing and rarely breaks out. A moisturizing formula is best.
OILY Prone to breakouts, blackheads and large pores. It gets shiny fast and has few or no wrinkles.
Powder is great because it has an oil-absorbing formula.
NORMAL/COMBINATION Neither too oily nor too dry...or may need a little help controlling oil in T-zone. Try a balancing formula, which moisturizes or mattifies just where you need it.
4 USE BLUSH TO ENHANCE YOUR FACE SHAPE
Find your face shape...then apply your blush to accentuate the positive! Blend on cheekbones for an allover pretty flush of color.
Oval Blend on cheekbones for an allover pretty flush of color.
Round Apply at a 45° angle along cheekbones, upward to temples.
Heart Apply in small circles, focusing on the apples of your cheeks.
Long Apply to apples and blend outward toward ears, not upward to temples.
5 HOW TO CHOOSE THE LIP HUES FOR YOUR SKIN TONE
We’ve customized the colors that complement your skin tone to find the palette of perfect shades for you.
LIGHT SKIN TONE
You look pretty in pinks, soft roses and mauves. A touch of twinkle on your lips also makes your fair skin glow.
LIGHT/MED SKIN TONE
You could go a bit deeper...rosy reds and beguiling berries flatter your skin tone and make your lips blush.
MEDIUM SKIN TONE
Browns, bronzes, beiges and peaches bring out your natural glow... and you look great in the nudes.
DEEP SKIN TONE
Deep browns, rich wines and luscious plums enhance the beauty of your color.
6 MAKE LIP GLOSS LAST LONGER
Use lip liner as an allover base coat of color for gloss to cling to. (Psst...it’s a favorite trick of makeup
artists to keep gloss in check.)
1. Line lips to define your shape
2. Fill in entire area with your lip liner
3. Top off your look with matching gloss for juicy shine
7 SOFT SMOKIN’ EYES
A smoldering look is always hot...even in the day! Eyes speak volumes with seductively soft plums or blue shadows. Add color-matched liners for subtle definition.
8 EYE-CATCHING MATCHMAKERS
For the most dramatic eye impact, pair a loose powder shadow with a bold liquid liner in a complementary or contrasting shade.
9 NAILS - OFF TO A SMOOTH START...
Exfoliate your cuticles for smoother, more beautiful nails and to prep your pointers for an impeccably polished look!
10 MANI IN A MINUTE
Take a half a minute to clip, snip, file and buff your way to beautiful, shapely nails. Then with 30 seconds to spare, pick your shade, polish up...and go!
