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

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

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

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!

  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.

Wear and Share Wednesday: Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is May 12th incase you were wondering. If you still need some ideas Wear and Share Wednesday has got you! Heather from Hopelessy Heather is back and ready to share with you a look at the Limted Edition Iconic Avon Collection.  I let you in on the 1967 inspiration on this Limited Collection but there’s more to the Mother’s Day Shop.

Alicia’s Picks:

Word Yo!

Word Yo!

Mother’s Day is all about appreciating the beauty in MOM.  (and I’m going to use all caps there because my Mom always writes it out that way, as that’s now she was taught — I think during her shorthand days — google shorthand if you don’t know that that is).  I always like beauty gifts for these kind of gift giving opportunities.  They are personal, as you’re picking out something you think she would like, flatter her.  They’re extremely useable and something Mom doesn’t really treat herself to all the time.

Limited Edition Beauty for Mother's Day

Limited Edition Beauty for Mother’s Day

The Mother’s Day beauty selections are really wearable, practical and pretty.  The packaging is extremely giftable, you could just tie them up in a bow and give!  The actual item’s design are really pretty too, and they all mix and match to create a perfect little bundle/gift set.

I selected my top picks here and look how pretty they all are bundled together.  The Iconic Avon Blooming Blush Palette is the star of the show.  Substantial in size, weight, and product amount is worth far more then the $9.99 its going for.  The formula is spot on as well.  VERY wearable shades and who doesn’t want a healthy flush!?  Here I’m wearing the pink shade and you can see how healthy it looks! (also wearing the peachy/coral shade in this post)

Bundled along side are a few lip products, the Iconic Avon Lipstick in Natural Shimmer, the Mom’s The Balm Lip Balm in Melon and the Iconic Avon Blooms & Kisses Lip Gloss.  These three all stand on their own or paired together.  The Iconic Avon Lipsticks are in those classic metal lipstick tubes that are so fancy and feel so luxe.  In these pics I’m wearing the Blooms & Kisses Gloss in Lively Violet and let me tell you how pigmented and long lasting this little guy is… and at $4.99!  Also shown, the Iconic Avon Pearly Earrings (see Heather’s picks below for more details!)

Finally, fragrance!  Not only did Avon launch a pretty new spring scent, Flourish Honey Blossom, we also have some gift sets released for Mother’s Day.  I JUST LOVE the gingham design, marrying perfectly with the other beauty products.  Giftsets available in Velvet (shown here) and Haiku including a full size fragrance, body lotion and travel size mist.

“On Mother’s Day we show the mother figures in our lives how much we love and appreciate them – and Avon has released the perfect vintage inspired jewelry line that includes a heart brooch, pearly earrings, a dangling charms bracelet, a pearly ring and a pendant watch necklace.  All the above are absolutely stunning in traditional gold settings and would make killer gifts for your wife, mom, grandma, sister, aunt or other mom you want to celebrate. Make it twice as nice by getting your favorite ladies matching pieces and present them at the same time.

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the brooch, earrings and watch necklace.  The brooch is hefty and features gorgeous scroll work with some sparkly bits sprinkled on top.  Brooches make great additions to hats, coats, scarves, tops and even as hair decorations.  The earrings show off two beautiful pearls in a leafy bed of gold that simply delights.  The watch necklace features an incredibly long chain and a sturdy watch pendant – the chain could be wound around a wrist instead of worn around a neck or the pendant could be removed from the chain altogether to attach a clip assembly and tack it to a handbag, keychain or tons of other places!” – Heather

Heather styled these vintage inspired pieces perfectly with her vintage inspired look.  Excuse me while I go grab a scarf to look as adorable as she does in her neck scarf.  Classic pieces make excellent giftables… even as a gift for yourself!

1967 – an Iconic year!  If you didn’t know, the 60’s are kinda my spirit animal.  I love the fashion, the looks, the music, the spirit, just dig it all.  Maybe it has a little to do with my parents who were newlyweds and new parents at the age of 20.  I just loved looking at those vintage family pictures, spurred my infatuation.  When Avon showcased their Iconic Avon collection for Mother’s Day featuring inspiration from vintage Avon from 1967, I already knew I would be smitten!  Let’s take a look at that Iconic 1967 in some snapshots of the year, vintage Avon ads and to help feel the spirit of the 60’s I recreated a few of these Iconic 1967 looks!

Word of Alicia:  If you loved the mark. liquid shadows of yesteryear (mark. all time eye, see here) then you’ll love these!  Like me, I loved those mark ones especially in the summer for an eye that’s not overdone.  The formula is better, no creasing and stays all day, double the size and they’re glittery!  These aren’t quite on the same level as the Stila ones but those are $22 a pop and these are $5.99, so you do the math.  I picked up 4 shades, Rose Gold, Fool’s Gold, Jade and Peach Sapphire, all 4 I’m loving.  So much that I ordered two more shades!

How I’m Wearing the Glimmershadows:  After playing around with these new releases, I found my favorite way to apply them.  Because these are such a strong formula, I don’t need an eye primer, I start with using the doe foot applicator straight on the lid, all over, staying below the crease and running under my lower lash line as well.  I let those set, and curl my lashes with an eyelash curler.  Then, using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, I run a taupe shade in my crease and outer v (as you would a transition shade).  I then use a white eyeshadow on my inner corner and brow bone to brighten the eye.  Finish it of with my go-to cat eye liner, and a coat of black mascara.  I’ve literally done this with each of the 4 shades and it slay’s all day!  They look put together, and make my eyes pop!
