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!

Alicia’s Must Have List DEFINITELY includes this holiday palette.  I kinda hoarded it when I first got it and did’t use it right away.  Then I did… now I can’t stop.  It’s BEAUTIFUL.  The shade selections are wonderful, the package design is vintage and adorable and looks killer sitting on your vanity.  Plus, the color payoff is so nice, and lasts SO WELL.  Gayle might have wanted to “borrow with permission” but for $24.99 even us without Oprah as our bff can still get this goodie.

Holo Polish for NYE

I wore two holo polishes this New Years, a silver one from Zoya and a black one from Julep.  For a little confetti I added an Essie Luxe Effect topcoat on my middle and added some nail gems on my ring.  Quick, easy and festive!

Buffalo Plaid, Feathers, and Red Lips

Only 6 days until Christmas, and another festive mani Monday down!  I’m feeling the festive spirit with finding a way to bring a little red, green and glam to my everyday.  Today’s festive is a buffalo plaid mixed mani, feather necklace and a classic red lip!

Julep and Jamberry

For my buffalo plaid mixed mani I started with Friday Flannel nail wrap from Jamberry on my ring.  I then used Julep polishes to do my black and gold nails.  Once it dried I drew the line down the side of my ring and middle with that same gold and then cleaned up around the nail.  This really matched a lot of my festive red and green outfits I’ve been wearing lately, like this feather and red lip look!

The mark. So Fly Necklace with its black feather, hematite metal and gemstone details is a really fun piece for the holidays.  I paired mine over this off the shoulder sweater (WHBM) and a black and white wool plaid skirt (Nordstroms).

Festive and Fun

If your NYE is a little more casual and cold weather this fun necklace might be the piece you need to fun up your look.  Pair it with my favorite red lip, mark. All Butter Up in Fired Up and you are good to go!  You can shop the mark. So Fly Necklace at my eBoutique.  Now what to do for the ultimate festive mani Monday, Christmas Day!  What are you planning on wearing?

I’m wearing my skirt as if its dipped in gold!  First push all the sequins up so it’s teal, then brush down the bottom in an uneven pattern for a dipped in gold look.  Perfect for NYE or a holiday party!  I paired mine with a simple tank, white fur stole, (mark.

Fellow rep and fashion fan, Natasha is going for the gold by wearing the skirt all swiped down for that full on gold look.  She paired hers with a basic black turtleneck, a black and gold arm party (mark.

A Clutch Worthy Holiday Mani

A good holiday mani is so clutch during the holiday season.  It doesn’t have to be a full on nail art situation, it can be as simple as a really good red.  Including today and Christmas day we only have 3 MORE MANI MONDAYS of the holiday season!  So let’s paint the nails red!

Red and Gold Holiday Mani

My perfect holiday red polish is the Avon True Color Pro+ Nail Enamel in Royal Red.  My glimmering gold accent nail is Avon Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel in Glimmer.  Both are finished with the Avon Gel Finish Top Coat.

A few things I loving to gift or get:

A Classy AF Thanksgiving

Classy AF Thanksgiving

Classy AF Thanksgiving

Not all holiday looks are all glitz and glam, some are just classy AF.  And what’s classier than a classic LBD!?  Sometimes just a classic black dress is all you need for your holiday looks!

Avon Chain-Detail Dress

Avon Chain-Detail Dress

No one needs to argue the power of a Little Black Dress but this Avon Chain-Detail Dress is a must have!  Not only is it a great year round dress in its crepe like fabric but its a great dress for the holidays too!  The best part about it, its only $16.99 at my eBoutique!

Removable Black Chain Detail

Removable Black Chain Detail

The dress features a removable black chain detail around the neckline so you don’t need a necklace. You could easily remove it and pair this dress with your favorite statement necklace.  For this classy af look, I went with a statement earring instead with the Avon Modern Pearlesque Tassel Earrings.  For the rest of my jewelry I went with a simple black watch (Michael Kors) and a simple sparkly bracelet (Avon Modern Glamour Jet Pave Stretch Bracelet).  On lips mark. Vinyl Pout Lip Paint in Glamour.  (could that be any more perfect of a name for this look!?)

Avon Modern Pearlesque Tassel Earrings

What’s a holiday look without a little glitter!?  I added some glitter with these mark. High On Glitter Platform Pumps.  These black suede heels are really comfortable with the block heel and platform and also really secure with the ankle strap… and the perfect holiday heel!

Thanksgiving Outfit Inspo

I love this outfit for Thanksgiving because its classic but still fun, comfortable but still put together. It can handle eating all the turkey you want and still look amazing.  Think about it you could get this dress for $16.99, the earrings for 12.99 and the heels for $50, which qualifies you for the Beauty Of Gold A Box for only $10.  THEN use promo code AVONBLACK to get 20% off all of this, free shipping AND a FREE 7 piece beauty gift to complete the look.  So for under $100 you have your holiday look from head to toe NAILED.  You can thank me later.
