Makeup Looks To Master – Seasonal Switch

Makeup Look To Master:  Seasonal Switch

Makeup Look To Master: Seasonal Switch

Makeup Monday is our last installment in our Makeup Looks To Master series with a look at switching up your makeup for the season.  Just like our wardrobe our makeup wardrobe needs to be updated each season.  Not just for trends, but also for functionality!  In the fall/winter I tend to wear heavier makeup both in formulas and in colors, a lot of purples, smokey taupes and deep jewel tones.  Come spring I’m always looking to lighten and brighten so more highlighting and pinks and peaches.  In the summer it’s all about that bronze glow in formulas that can withstand the hot heat and sweating faces.

Bronzy and Glowy for the Summer

Bronzy and Glowy for the Summer

In the summer it all starts with the right base!  I may be able to use a lighter day moisturizer but I have to use a primer more than ever in the summer.  Perfect for summer is the Magix Face Perfector because it not only blurs my summer pores, it also has SPF 20 in it.  I’ll then use my concealer or my Magix Tint Tinted Moisturizer.  Mid-day I’ll need a powder touch up with some translucent powder or at least the use of some blotting sheets.

Functional for the hot heat

Functional for the hot heat

Functionally in the summer my makeup can’t be too heavy, it will just clog my pores.  I also prefer to use more summer friendly colors to make more of an impact and still look down for anything like a summer day is!  I tend to favor bronzer, glow-y products, bronzy brown shadows and simple glossy lips or a vibrant bold lip if I’m going out in a bright coral, orange or pink.  I’ve really been loving the Avon Dazzle Drops to add in some summer glow to my look.

Tip and Trick:  Use your bronzer as your transition shade on your lid

Tip and Trick: Use your bronzer as your transition shade on your lid

A little summer makeup tip and trick is to use your bronzer as your transition shade on your eyes.  Take a fluffy eyeshadow brush and blend in the crease and under the eye, making sure there’s no harsh lines.  Then use a simple shade all over your lid, I used the taupe shade in the Berry Love Avon Eyeshadow Quad.  Finally, add a little bit of your Avon Dazzle Drops on the center of your eyelid for a easy and glowing summer makeup look.  Here I finished it all with Avon Crave Lip Gloss in Peach Bellini, which I think is the perfect summer lipgloss “flavor.”

The products I used in my Big and Bold post are also summer favorites!  I love a fun summer eyeshadow palette along with some big and bold summer color.  I know I don’t take the best makeup pictures, never have, never will but I hope you got the gist of how you can master 5 different takes on makeup and apply them to your life in a functional way!  Just to recap the 5 we have The Everyday Slay, The Quickie, Going Out, Big and Bold and lastly the Seasonal Switch we highlighted today.  Please reach out if you want any suggestions for mastering your makeup!

Makeup Looks To Master: Big and Bold

Makeup Looks To Master:  Big and Bold

Makeup Looks To Master: Big and Bold

Color in makeup is the absolute most fun but also seems to be the scariest for people to try and use in their go-to makeup looks. I’m continuing my 5 Makeup Looks to Master with the Big and Bold edition on color!  A fun bold color lets you have fun with makeup (as it should be fun!) and having a go-to makeup look using color gives you that assurance that it looks good and you can actually wear it in your daily life.

Big and Bold Colored Eyeliner

Big and Bold Colored Eyeliner

One really easy way to work a bold color into your look is with eyeliner.  Swapping out your basic black or brown with a bright aqua blue like this Avon Ultra Luxury Eyeliner in Sky Blue is super easy.  (I told you I was picking up a few more of these Ultra Luxury!)  If sky blue intimidates you, then try a navy blue, hunter green or dark purple.  These wear like a black but give a colorful twist so color newbies will still feel comfortable wearing them out. Avon Ultra Luxury Eyeliner in Sky Blue

Avon Ultra Luxury Eyeliner in Sky BlueLet the liner be the statement with a simple champaign shadow as your base, clean face makeup and a nude lip.

Big and Bold Colorful Eyeshadow

I also love a colorful eye look using eyeshadow!  These pictures might not share the full in real life color of my makeup but I used my smokey eye technique and worked in color.  This time I used the Tarte High Tides and Good Vibes Eyeshadow Palette to create a big and bold teal eye look.  Use the same techniques as you use with your neutrals only swap in a color.  Same look and feel just tweaked for more fun!  (You could try the Avon True Color Matte Eyeshadow Quad in Tranquility to get a similar look for less)

Big and Bold Colorful Eyeshadow Makeup Look

Big and Bold Colorful Eyeshadow Makeup Look

When doing a bold eyeshadow look I tend to do a light shade all over the lid (Burried Gold) with a matte neutral shade in the transition area (South Beach) and a dark shade in the outer v (Dive In) with a pop of color to transition the dark shade on the outer into the light shade on the inner (Surf’s Up).  End result is a wearable colorful eye look using shadow!

Tarte High Tides and Good Vibes Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte High Tides and Good Vibes Eyeshadow Palette

These are two go-to ways I work color into my makeup looks but even if you’re shy to wear a colorful eye I know you can work in a colorful lipstick!  I think everyone should have a red lip they like to wear as a red lip always looks big and bold while still being classic.  Plus!  It works for all your holidays… maybe not Easter, but def Christmas, New Years, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day… you name it!  If you think you can’t wear a red lip, hit me up and I’ll find you the perfect red for you.  Right now for summer I’m loving the Avon True Color Perfectly Matte in Coral Fever – see my Lip of the Day post on here.  Additionally, there are some good free gifts going on at the eBoutique if you’re ready to pick up a new red lipstick or some big and bold colorful makeup.  Be sure to add that A Box too!

Word on the Glow Baby Glow A Box

I’ve said it before and I’ve said it again Power Serum is one of my all time favorites!  It boosts what you use it with so apply the Vit C serum first let it dry down then try Power Serum over it before you finish with your day or night cream.  Personally what I like about this box is the Crave Lip Gloss in Strawberry Glaze, I didn’t have that one and its fruity smell did not disappoint.  You can tell its essentially a clear gloss so it will go with your Everyday Slay Makeup Look!  Plus you get the Vit C lip treatment, and some travel size skincare for summer travel… this box is SO worth its $10.  And its a great way to try the new formula on the Vit C serum.

Makeup Looks To Master: Going Out

Makeup Looks To Master: Going Out

Makeup Looks To Master: Going Out

Things are going up on a Tuesday!  Well, that’s if you count the grocery store as going out… But my going-out makeup is!  Party makeup is the most fun and where you can take more risks.  I like to switch it up for the event, season, weather and just the overall vibes but having one go-to makeup look helps when you don’t have a lot of time to get ready, don’t know what you’re going to wear or exactly how the event will play out.  For the past year this has been my go-to going out makeup look.

Glittery Eyes and a Fun Lip!

Glittery Eyes and a Fun Lip!

Glittery eyes and a fun lip.  After stalking it for some time I finally used my birthday week treats to pick up the Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Kitten Karma.  This is a pretty intense gold glitter that pretty much makes your going out makeup a party all itself.  However it is $24 a pop so when Avon released their Glimmershadows in Fools Gold I noticed it was a pretty good dupe at only $8.  In the photo below I’m wearing the Stila version with a pink lip, in these other photos I’m wearing the Avon Glimmershadow.  You can see they’re very similar and a very fun going out look!

Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Kitten Karma

Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Kitten Karma

A glittery liquid shadow like these are so impactful you don’t need much.  I like to start with putting some concealer on my eyelid, no need for a primer with the Avon since its so long lasting.  Then I’ll apply the glimmershadow.  I let it dry and set for maybe 30 seconds then I’ll go in with a neutral taupe shade above the crease in the transition area.  If I’m adding an outer v color then I will, like here I used a little black shadow.  I then use my favorite liquid liner Avon True Color Liquid Precise Pen and follow up with curling my lashes and mascara, Avon Love at 1st Lash in black.

When doing my go-to going out look I stick to lip shades I know I love.  A good liquid lipstick will have more staying power for a long night out of eating and drinking!  I’m wearing mark. Pout Velvet Lip Paint in Fancy.  This has been discontinued which means savings for you, its only $5.99 right now!  I did pick up a backup as this is one of my favorites, its very comfortable to wear!  On my face I started with the same primer, Magix tint and blush I used in my everyday makeup look — see here.  Only addition is I added some making setting spray at the end and I did my brows (as seen here).  Going out makeup is the perfect time to contour and highlight however I didn’t do that here… oops.

Believe me you want a glitter shadow in your arsenal!  Even if you don’t go all out a little swipe of this on a clean lid and some mascara will have you instantly party-ready!  But note, these Avon Glimmershadows are selling like hotcakes!  There are a few shades already on back order and not a whole lot of stock coming down the pipes until closer to fall, so I recommend you jump on this Fool’s Gold shade while its still available AND they’re buy one get one half off at my eBoutique!

Makeup Look To Master: The Quickie

Makeup Look To Master: The Quickie

Makeup Look To Master: The Quickie

Even if you are not a perpetually late person like me, you need to master the quickie!  From my 5 makeup looks to master the quickie is the easiest and most necessary!  Need something you can quickly do to feel good and look good. Your quickie makeup look has to be quick and easy and with no-fail products!

Easy Breezy Word of Alicia

Easy Breezy Word of Alicia

I have a few of these quickie techniques that I rotate, based on scenario and what products I have at hand… aka what’s already in my purse, what’s on top of my makeup bag if I’m home, what activity I’m doing, going to work/going to the store/etc…  For this look I went with my lashes and lips technique.

Quick and Easy Makeup

Quick and Easy Makeup

On my face I just used concealer, concentrating on under eyes, around my nose and chin.  (I’m using a discontinued one so currently on the hunt for a new one, spam me with your favorites!)  I usually keep a mini blush in my purse right now its a mini Nars Laguna Bronzer and Orgasm Blush which I swirled together and lightly applied.  For eyes it’s just lots of mascara with the Avon Love at First Lash Mascara.  I kinda apply it messy so the transfer kinda darkens the lash line like a liner would.  And then seal the deal with a bright lipstick, Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Dragonfruit.  Quick and Easy.

Messy Mascara = Prentend Liner

Messy Mascara = Prentend Liner

It’s the bright bold lip that makes this looked so finished and polished.  If I have an ounce more of time and a good mirror I’ll do my eyeliner with my Avon SuperExtend Liquid Liner Pen (see review here).  Gets me closer to my Everyday Slay look.  Nice thing about being an Avon lady is I always have those little lipstick bullets in a pocket, drawer, bag, somewhere so I can get this quick look very easily.

Lip of the Day:  Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Dragonfruit

Lip of the Day: Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Dragonfruit

This is also the technique I used for my beach makeup, only I use a waterproof mascara and wear a tinted lip balm instead of lipstick and more bronzer than blush.  But real quick my earrings are from the Julia X Avon collection which is coming back to the outlet next week so be sure to check out http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger for them and for my Avon makeup products I used in this look!  Be sure to keep following along my 5 makeup looks to master series here on the blog because all these selfies have me like…

The Truth of Taking Selfies

The Truth of Taking Selfies

Makeup Look To Master: Everyday Slay

Makeup Look To Master:  Your Everyday Slay

Makeup Look To Master: Your Everyday Slay

The everyday makeup look is the hardest to perfect in my opinion, which is probably why mine is ever changing.  Not only do you need to find the best flattering shades, you also need to find the best formulas for your skin type and that work with your lifestyle… not to mention techniques and trends!  No one wants to look like they’re doing the same look they did when they first started wearing and experimenting with makeup.

First, determine what your everyday looks like.  What features you want to highlight, what products you like to use. Like for me, I like the look of a heavier eye and I don’t really like to wear foundation, so my look is going to be a more complicated eye look and a simpler face look.  For my lifestyle I need a look that works for my 9-5 that’s business casual, along with some after work and weekend casual actives.  Additionally, most of the year its super hot so I need something that doesn’t melt/sweat off and can handle my large pores.

My Go-To Everyday Makeup

My Go-To Everyday Makeup

Now that I’ve determined what my needs are, its time to slay!  I kid, I kid… I don’t slay I just like that it kinda rhymes… Anywho, I start with skincare straight out of the shower, a serum, eye cream and moisturizer.  Right now I’m using the Avon Anew Dual Elixir, the Anew Hydra Fusion Eye Serum and the Anew Ultimate Day Cream with SPF 25.

To battle my large pores and help battle the hot temps my face makeup starts with a primer, Ulta Poreless Face Primer.  Even though I said I don’t like foundation I’ve been wearing the Avon Magix Tinted Moisturizer in Light Medium.  It doesn’t feel like a foundation, or look like one, just blurs my imperfections and evens my skin tone all while looking natural.  Next, I follow up  with concealer under my eyes, on lids and on nose.  I use a fluffy brush and apply bronzer on the top of cheeks and forehead followed by blush on the apples of my cheeks.  Right now I’m using up my mark. Hooked Up Bronzer and been loving the Avon Blush Palette  from the spring.

Pinky Neutral Eyes and Liquid Liner

Pinky Neutral Eyes and Liquid Liner

For eyes, I stick to neutral pinks and taupes that are cool toned for my everyday.  Lately my go-to is a taupe shade in the transition area (from this holiday palette) and the Avon Glimmershadows in Rose Gold all over my lid and underneath.  From that same holiday palette I use a shimmery white to highlight my inner corners and brow bone.  I top it off with a winged eye using the Avon True Color SuperExtend Precise Liquid Liner in Black and Love and First Lash Mascara.  On my lips my everyday is some sort of balm or nourishing lipstick or oil, here I’m wearing some Burts Bee’s Lip Balm.

Just some side eye and RBF

Just some side eye and RBF

This is typically my everyday, all I do is tweak this look.  I tweak the eyeshadow colors and the lips most often.  Same eyeliner, same mascara, same blush/bronzer duo.  If I’m feeling really extra I’ll add a contour or highlight or maybe do my brows but for the most part this is it and easily re-createable even if you aren’t a liquid winged eyeliner fan, just swap in your fav black eyeliner (Glimmersticks are really easy to use!)

You can shop most of my go-to products that I used for this look at my eBoutique and today, June 6th, you can get FREE SHIPPING with a $25 order!  Perfect time to pick up some new makeup that are at lower price points.  I’d also suggest getting some Bug Guard as its on sale right now too!

This was a lot of words of/from alicia and very few and very similar pictures so if you read this entire post, kudos to you!

Word On Avon Ultra Luxury Liners — that are only $1.75!

Before I get into my 5 Makeup Looks To Master Series (see here) I thought I’d share a little exciting makeup deal.  The Avon Ultra Luxury Liners are only $1.75 this campaign… move over E.L.F.!

Ultra Luxury Liners for $1.75

Ultra Luxury Liners for $1.75

Word of Alicia:  These liners are a re-release because they originally discontinued them and got so many requests to bring them back that they did.  I remember not loving them before, but I probably tried the black eyeliner and a pencil eyeliner is not what I like in a black eyeliner so I prob was like pass… so this time around I tried an eyeliner in a fun color (in Emerald), a brow pencil because why not (in Blonde), and a lip pencil (in Chocolate).

Ultra Luxury Lip Liner in Chocolate

Ultra Luxury Lip Liner in Chocolate

I’m really glad I did because the Ultra Luxury Lip Liner is Chocolate is now a top favorite makeup item!  Its the perfect nude brown that you can wear alone or with your favorite lip shade.  The pencil gives a nice sharp line while still being soft and comfortable to wear and they sharpen really well too!

Ultra Luxury Brow Pencil in Blonde

Ultra Luxury Brow Pencil in Blonde

I’m not a huge brow person so take my review with a grain of salt, but the blonde pencil is perfect cool toned blonde that works well for brows.  It’s soft enough to easily apply and hard enough not to go on as a blobby mess.  For someone who just fills in and defines every once in awhile this is PERFECT!

Ultra Luxury Eyeliner in Emerald

Ultra Luxury Eyeliner in Emerald

The Emerald Ultra Luxury Eyeliner surprised me too!  It’s definitely softer, muted color not as opaque as I usually go for, but sometimes that’s what you want.  If you are not a big eyeliner person and just want a little definition or use it rarely these at $1.75 couldn’t be better.  These aren’t super long lasting but if you pair it with a primer and a good lid shade base color it lasts through the day.

I got these when the first launched earlier in the year so I’ve had some time to give them a good go, not just a first impression.  I do know I’ll be picking up a few more lip shades, Currant has my eye.  In the eyeliners I already got the Sky Blue to try but maybe I should get the Eggplant too!  I mean these are a $1.75!  PLUS on Thursday June 6th there will be a FREE SHIP CODE on a $25 order so would be a great time to get a little makeup order going, maybe swoop on that SSS Bug Guard that’s on sale too!  I’ll keep ya posted when the code goes live at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

5 Makeup Looks To Master

5 Makeup Looks To Master

Makeup Monday is going to cary on all week because I’ll be sharing 5 makeup looks you should master for your life.

You CAN do it!

With each look you’ll want to master them according to your skin type and lifestyle.  Its kinda like how workout videos have the main person to follow along with and then one person doing the modified version for not as skilled and then one doing modified for those more advanced.  You can do the same thing with makeup, be extra or be minimal.  Here are the 5 looks I feel are the ones everyone should and can master:

  1.  Everyday Slay – your go to everyday makeup routine that works for work, play, weekend and more.  Just complimentary go with everything shades that work for you.
  2. The Quickie – a super quick version of your everyday that can be done super quick when running late.  These are your dessert island products you can put on in a snap.
  3. Going Out – this is your party look for a night out or a special event that you know will look good for pictures but also makes you feel a little special.
  4. Big and Bold – going big or go home, with a bold pop of color, be it a bold lip or a bold eye or both!
  5. Seasonal Switch – you need to adapt your makeup for the season not just in colors but also in formula, I’ll be featuring my summer edition.
