What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You Are Attending

Are you hosting or attending a Thanksgiving dinner this year? If you are an easy going attendee then picking out an outfit is a little more fun and less strategic. My suggestion, the ever so popular sweater dress! It looks polished, put together but is oh so cozy and comfy. My pick is the Avon Elena Sweater Dress.

Avon Elena Sweater Dress $39.99

Avon Elena Sweater Dress $39.99

Why is the Elena Sweater Dress my pick?  Well, first off its black so instantly chic, and flattering. Its also a straight fitting shape, not tight so you can eat and sit and lounge and still be totally fine.  Like I said, it’s cozy and comfy and that’s what fall is all about!  It’s also $39.99 so super affordable.

Plus the Elena Sweater Dress comes pre-glammed with these fun rhinestone details.  No necklace required!  Just layer on some cute bracelets like these Avon Pearly Jet Stretch Bracelets.  I also added the Avon Sterling Silver Onyx rings for a little more glam.

To make it holiday ready I really like it paired with these Marc Fisher red booties and red plaid bag from Guess.  Of course it needed to be paired with a mega shiny red lip, the mark. Pout Vinyl Lip Paint in Glamour.  What I like about the lip paint for Thanksgiving is it has some serious staying power and is a bright red.

Word of Alicia:  This navy shade has just enough purple in it to be kinda flattering and wearable.  On dark skin tones they could wear it as an everyday deep lip shade.  Fair like me, its more of a certain circumstances kind of gig.  But I’ll tell ya, its super comfortable to wear, not drying like most mattes and lasts!  It’s just the perfect shade for Halloween!  You can get it in time for Halloween over at the eBoutique.

I opted for the gold pants for birthday OOTD because they would work for desk through dinner.  Instead of wearing the typical party dress, why not wear some party pants!?  I see these being equally as chic come holiday season and for when you want to be comfortable but fancy.  They made quite a statement without being too over the top.  I can’t tell you how many compliments I received!  Plus, I’ve seen this metallic fabric all over the place this fall as a huge trend.

Week O’Nautical: Sea of Shimmer

Hello short week!  Hello Week O’Nautical!  Even though I’m in the office today, I’m dreaming of being kissed by the sun while staring at shimmering sea.  Since that is not my reality, I’m sporting some killer beauty items that make me look like I am!  I really was inspired by this page in the Avon brochure, then I realized these are all the products I’ve been loving lately!  So here’s my current top 5 products for a sun kissed shimmering look!

Sea of Shimmer

Sea of Shimmer

 

  1.  Skin So Soft Radiant Glow Illuminating Dry Oil Mist – currently on backorder (available in 2 weeks) but this shimmer oil is my #1 top favorite.  I’m a huge body oil fan, but this works for those who aren’t.  Just spray on arms/legs/whereever you want a little glow!

    Radiant Glow Oil and Polish

    Radiant Glow Oil and Polish

  2. Radiant Glow Skin Lumosity Polish – summer is all about bare skin so to keep it glowing need to get off the rough edges and this scrub does the trick and then some.  It’s creamy so extra moisturizing and smells amazing!

    Moisturizing and Exfoliating

  3. Avon True Color Sandy Beach Bronzing Palette – with two bronze shades and a pink shade this is my go-to for easy makeup.  I use the darker shade where you’d contour at, the pink shade as a blush and the lighter bronze shade to blend the two together.  I also swirl them all together and with a light hand bronze up my face for a quick look.

  4. Avon True Color Dazzle Drops – if that wasn’t enough shimmer, I’ve been adding these dazzle drops for even more!  I apply them with my finger for a highlight on the cheek bone and cupids bow.  I also mix in with body lotion and apply all over my arms and chest for that shimmering like the sea shimmer.
    Dazzle Drops features a dropper for multi-use

  5. Avon True Color Sunset Beach Face & Eye Palette – For a fun summer change this blush and eye pallet has been my go-to.  Its all in one so makes getting ready super easy.  Use the bronze shade all over the lid with a quick line of blue eye liner (like the ones above) for a sunkissed day look.  For a night out look, I like the green as a crease color, the peach as a transition shade and the blue on the center of the eye for a pop.  Looks great with the Sandy Beach Bronzing Palette too!  And it has cute pineapples printed on it!

    1 Summer Pallet for tons of looks!

I may not have that fresh from the sea glow naturally but with the help of these goodies I can fake it until I make it!  Plus, shimmer goes with everything!  These products are my top pick from a bunch of new items this year that are part of Avon’s #brilliantlyavon products.  Search that hashtag on social media for some more IRL’s (in real life pics).

Word On Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss

Today’s Lip of the Week is lots of lips!  Avon has a new product release, its newest lip gloss, Lip Glow!  It comes in 21 shades, some similar to Avon’s most popular Glazewear shades, some shades completley brand new.  I picked out 5 shades to try and I’ve been wearing them non-stop.

Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss

Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss

Word on Lip Glow:  Glow is the new gloss. Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss has more shine, more moisturization, more color* and zero stickiness. It’s formulated with chia seed and rose hip oils to help nourish and moisturize for soft, supple lips. .27 fl. oz.

BENEFITS

• Highly-saturated shades
• Long-lasting shine
• Comfortable, creamy feel
• Paraben-free

TO USE

Smooth onto lips.

Up close and personal

Up close and personal

Word of Alicia:  Overall I highly enjoy the formula.  It is moisturizing and not sticky, as promised.  It feels luxe and full not slimy or slippery.  You can really tell its a lip oil full of benefits.  As far as color options, I think there’s somethign for everyone for every occasion.  In the below pictures you can tell it was a windy day while taking these pics, my hair DID NOT STICK to my lip glow, that alone should be a reason to give it a go haha.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Lit

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Lit

LIT:  The only creme (opaque) color in my collection.  Color payoff is really strong and leaves behind a nice lip stain as it wears off.  If you are a liquid lipstick fan this would be a good option for you.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Estrella

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Estrella

ESTRELLA:  This is probably my favorite from the bunch.  Its just such a flattering shade on me that can be worn year round for any occasion.  For being a shimmer shade (sheer) it has a good color payoff and is extremely similar to my favorite Avon True Color Lip Balm in Plum Passion.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Lighthouse

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Lighthouse

LIGHTHOUSE:  This shade is a replacement for Glazewear Mocha Latte.  I picked this because a fellow rep, Lisa Scola, is always spreading her love for Mocha Latte Glazewear, which also is one of our biggest sellers.  I definitely was not disappointed by this neutral.  Just an easy to wear brown towned sheer.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Aura

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Aura

AURA:  This is another shimmer (sheer) shade with a pink tone, which, as an everyday shade, I think is perfect.  I’ve been wearing this a lot lately just because it goes with every makeup look.  Simple, easy and comfortable.  This is a safe shade if you want to try the Lip Glows but not sure what color to pick.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Luna

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Luna

LUNA:  Luna is a sleep shade, a surprising stunner that’s super unique.  It’s also unexpectedly selling out.  I picked this one because I wanted to test it out see if it would be a good replacement for a shade my sister is constantly hunting for.   This one wears kind of like a lilac milkshake nude.  It’s also one that works really well layerd over other shades, lipstick or even over a little concealer for a more bolder nude lip.  It almost looks grey toned in these pics, but its a light purple and a shimmer (sheer) formula.

I really like these Lip Glows, super easy to wear.  For years I’ve been pretty exclusive to lipstick and balm so getting back in the lip gloss game is a fun change.  Even better, these are only $5.99 at intro price at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger  That price is a steal considering lip oils from other brands are easily in the $15 to $25 range.  Plus today only, there’s a promo code for FREE SHIPPING on $25 a perfect time to pick up some makeup items like these Lip Glows.  Use promo code HELLOSUMMER at my eBoutique.
