25 Uses For Avon True Color Dazzle Drops

Nothing gives you more bang for your buck than a good multi-tasking product.  One of my biggest multi-takers are my Avon True Color Dazzle Drops ($14).  This gem of a product is not one I’ve really “highlighted” before (see what I did there) but it’s currently FREE with your $50 purchase at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger so I thought I’d share why this guy is such a find with 25 uses for the Avon True Color Dazzle Drops.

25 Uses for Avon True Color Dazzle Drops

 

1. As a face highlighter: Use on cheekbones, under brow, tip of nose, cupids bow, all the places you’d highlight

2. Brighten Complexion: For a subtle glow, mix 1-2 drops with your face moisturizer

3. Glowing Base: For a luminous glow, mix 2-3 drops with your foundation

4. Accent Collarbone: Use on your collarbones, tips of shoulders, to accent your decolletage

5. Body Glow: Get an allover glow by mixing 3-4 drops with your body lotion

6. Longer Legs: Swipe Dazzle Drops down the front of your shins for the appearance of longer legs

7. Under Eye Brightener: Mix in with your under eye concealer to brighten up your under eye area

8. Look More Awake: Apply dazzle drops at the inner corner of your inner eye to appear bright eyed and bushy tailed

9. Fuller Lips: Using your finger tip, apply to your cupids bow and in the center of your bottom lip (with or without lip color)

10. DIY Shimmer Lipstick: Mix with your favorite lipstick to create a luminous finish

11. Golden Goddess: Mix Dazzle Drops with a liquid bronzer for that golden goddess look, apply where the sun would naturally hit or on the body

12. Easy Eye Shadow: Swipe Dazzle Drops all over the eye lid for a quick and easy glimmering eye look

13. Gleaming Primer: Using Dazzle Drops as your lid base, it creates a primer with gleam before applying eye shadows

14. Blushing Glow: Mix Dazzle Drops with your cream blush for a blushing glow, I like the Avon True Color Be Blushed Cheek Color

15. Define Brows: Use Dazzle Drops under your brow and right on top of the tail end of your brow to help define, preferably after using Avon Glimmersticks Brow Definer

16. Make Matte Look Less Flat: When wearing matte makeup, highlight with dazzle drops to add some light reflection for a more dimensional look

17. Make Your Highlight Pop: To achieve maximum highlight impact, layer your highlighters, use Dazzle Drops first then apply a powder highlight on top, like Avon True Color Moonlit Highlighting Powder

18. Beach Makeup: When you need a little beach glow, use Dazzle Drops on eye and cheeks along with waterproof mascara for easy beach makeup

19. DIY Shimmer Shadows: Combine dazzle drops with your favorite eye shadow to create a creamy shimmery eye look, apply with a dense brush like a concealer brush

20. Shimmery Eyeliner: Using and clean eyeliner brush, use Dazzle Drops as a glistening eyeliner, looks great with a smokey eye

21.  Aging Skin Looks Younger:  Because Dazzle Drops are a liquid you can use them on aging skin and instead of settling in line and wrinkles like a powder would, this actually illuminates and brings back that youthful glow

22.  Fake A Tan:  Build a body bronzer with some powdered bronzer, body lotion and Dazzle Drops

23.  Party Part:  For an easy party hairstyle, create a deep part and slick back into a sleek pony tail, apply Dazzle Drops down that part for a sparkling effect

24.  Coachella Brows:   Music festivals and party scenes sometime require an out-of-the-box makeup look, take a twist on glitter brows and run Dazzle Drops through your brows with a clean spoolie 

25.  Hair Shine That’s So EXTRA:  Add 1 drop of Dazzle Drops per 1 pump of the Avon Advance Techniques Daily Shine Dry Ends Serum, mix together and apply to dry hair to smooth and shine on a whole other level (another under-rated multi-tasking Avon product)

What To Wear: Flirting With Spring

What To Wear: Flirting With Spring

What To Wear: Flirting With Spring

It’s still winter. It still feels like winter. It still looks like winter. I’m over winter, and ready to flirt with spring. Which means I need wear-now styles with wear-later trends. Luckily I recruited Linda to help us flirt with spring with some appropriate long sleeved spring dress styles!

Alicia’s Look:

Lemony Fresh in the Avon Jenny Dress

Lemony Fresh in the Avon Jenny Dress

I’m flirting with fresh spring colors and cutouts.  I’m a lover of all things lemon so I knew I needed this lemon dress with split sleeves and keyhole detail, the Avon Jenny Dress.  It’s so bright and cheery even on a gray and dreary day.  I belted the dress and bloused it over the belt to give it a better shape for my body.  Of course I had to add the Avon Sunny Days Strap Watch for that extra punch.  My earrings are also lemons but from last year, but you can get the similar look with these!  Because it is still winter, I needed to layer this dress with tights and boots, but not your typical black, but with navy!  What I also love about these tights are how comfortable they are, these Avon 2 pack Opaque Tights come 1 navy 1 black.  Perfect!

Avon Betty Dress

Avon Betty Dress

Linda’s flirting with spring prints and details.  Linda took advantage of those sunny days and went with bare legs and pumps.  Nothing flirts with spring more than a fresh dress and bare legs.  The fun black and white print on this Avon Betty Dress works in every season.  The sleeve detail of piping and cutouts gives it a little extra flirty peek while still being easy to wear.  Plus, an easy to wear dress that’s a 1 and done kind of style is what we all need.  Pop on your favorite spring lip color and DONE!

Feeling spring with sunny days and bare legs!

This weekend I slept in my makeup 2 nights in a row. So some extra self care Sunday rituals were extra needed this past weekend. I used the Avon Anew Clean Daily Scrub mini in this A Box, along with Avon Anew Clean Cleansing Brush to wash away the weekend. I then used the Avon Anew Purifying Clay Mask to really go the extra mile. Sunday skincare masks are becoming my ritual.

Award Season Blues

It’s officially award season, which always kinda just sneaks in on me because… uh its also NFL Playoffs!  Which will always rank higher in my book, and, let’s be honest, getting the recaps the day after is just as good as watching the actual award shows filled with a million commercial breaks.  However, the Golden Globes from last night had me feeling blue for missing it, mainly because of all the amazing blue fashion!

Word On Golden Globes Blues

Word On Golden Globes Blues

Blue is my favorite color, which is probably why they were my fav looks from the evening.  GaGa looked so old Hollywood in her periwinkle.  Camilla Belle was a personal favorite and just loving the more teal hues on Amy Adams and Gemma Chan.  Let’s not leave out the beauty!  Camilla’s green eye, Gemma’s red lip, Lady GaGa’s hair and Lupita’s cobalt blue mascara!  I mean even those Fiji girls looked stunning in blue!

 

The Globes also had me dreaming of things all a little more glam.  I’ve been pretty comfy cozy casual lately with being a homebody over Christmas vacation and during these winter storms.  Avon has this glam jewelry collection launching Tuesday Jan 8th which I just kinda glanced over.  Now I’m kinda mega digging that blue set and maybe some glam earrings to work into my winter sweaters outfit.  How fun would these be if you do an Oscar’s viewing party!?  Plus they all launch at buy one get one 50% off… NEED.  I saw those Cluster Earrings on Heather, totally convinced me I need them.

Matte Sparkle for the New Year

Matte Sparkle for the New Year

My New Years Eve mani has become my new year mani. While going through my nail polish stash I found these super sparkly polishes from Julep, which are actually a matte.  Making this mani something a little different and with all the glitter I was already wearing, matte seemed a good way to go.

New Year New Flowers ;)

New Year New Flowers 😉

These also look WAY better in person! I couldn’t capture the sparkle, so take my word for it.  I was kinda hesitant to give up wearing red on my nails but this purple polish is making it easy to transition to the new year.  Plus, first post always has to be a new mani post right!?

In the winter sun, trying to capture the sparkle

Things Oprah and I have in common; Iconic Avon Beauty Classics Collection

 

Things Oprah and I have in common;  Iconic Avon Beauty Classics Collection

Things Oprah and I have in common; Iconic Avon Beauty Classics Collection

Makeup Monday is brought to you by the Oprah effect. And by Oprah I mean Gayle and O Magazine who did a Facebook live (see here) on some top O beauty picks and some holiday hair and makeup ideas.  This is not the first time team Oprah has put things on her must have list that were already on Alicia’s must have list.  2017 she featured the Avon Mini Lipstick Set (Lots of Lips) which created them to sell out super quick.  Note:  These came back in 2018 in a cute vintage tin…that have already sold out.  In 2008 during the Brooks Brothers Moonlighting gig era, Oprah said the BB Non-Iron White shirt was the must-have white shirt (and it is see here).  But it also created a frenzy of SAHM’s coming in to ransack the store for said white shirts… and then they sold out until we could get new stock in.  So its no surprise that the Oprah pick of 2018 is the Iconic Avon Beauty Classics Collection… which is also my current fav holiday beauty palette… and is prob about to sell out quick!
