Lip of The Week: Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Roasted Chestnut

Hello March! Hello daylight, florals, warming temps and fresh spring air! Its like a switch went off and I have all the spring feels come March 1st. I busted out all my florals, even if I am wearing them with boots and tights. Either way, today’s lip of the week is a pretty neutral that looks great with all the florals, Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Toasted Chestnut.

Word on Roasted Chestnut:  This is one of the newly released shades in the line that I picked up during the sale last campaign.  I was expecting this to be a darker brown shade but its actually a very wearable deeper nude.  It’s more flattering than a “foundation” nude color and goes with pretty much any color you’re wearing and will work year round.  Works especially well with spring florals.  😉

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.

Avon True Color Dazzle Drops Swatch (Full Sun)

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)

You can get the Avon True Color Dazzle Drops at my eBoutique for $14 or currently on sale as part of the buy one get one half off products, OR it’s automatically added to your cart FOR FREE with a $50 purchase at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

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!

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!

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain Rain Go Away

Its been a rainy January, which we need here in NorCal. Doesn’t change the fact that rainy days need an extra boost! Like a holographic a rain anorak, a bright cobalt blue sweater and some hunters!

Wearing:  mark. New Millennium Anorak, mark. Laced Up Sweater, Avon Ponte Knit Pants, Hunter Rain Boots.

Anoraks are a great staple for your jacket wardrobe.  They’re light and packable and extremely functional.  I’m really loving this holographic one from mark. with convertible sleeves but there are a ton of different options.  I also am really loving this cute gingham one!  If it is still too cold to wear a light layer then pair an anorak up with your warmest fleece or sweater, or over something like a fleece North Face Jacket.

You can shop my look over at the eBoutique.  Also going on over there a free sample of our unreleased but majorly hyped Honey Blossom perfume with any fragrance purchase.  Basically, you can try it before anyone can even order it!

I’m a keep my holiday going till after the New Years kind of person so now that I’m on Christmas vacation I’m kinda in a holiday hangover. Don’t really know what day it is, what I have done, what I need to do before year end, but I do know there are a lot of blog posts I never got around to in Dec. so here’s a little re-cap of the things I meant to post…

Perfect Red Dress

Little Red Dress

Little Red Dress

This perfect red dress is what I wore for Christmas Eve.  Since it is now winter changed it up and paired it with tights and some lace up patent leather pumps (mark., old) and a pretty rhinestone bow belt (WHBM).  I felt very Mrs. Clause in it which was very appropriate.  I meant to have it hemmed, but never got around to it.  Maybe for Valentine’s day make it more fun and flirty.

Winter Solstice had me feeling the icy vibes with silver gray and light blues.  This fun sequin reindeer sweater (Avon) was a simpler way to be festive.  I really liked it paired with my boot skirt (WHBM) and OTK mushroom gray boots (Shoedazzle).
