Makeup Monday: Super Quick When Super Late

Ugh Mondays!  Regardless if you had a busy weekend or a chill one Monday’s are always tough. Which usually means I’m running late and something has to suffer. Thats when the super quick makeup formula is applied!

Concealer + Bronzer/Blush + Mascara + Bright Lip = Winning!

All The Products Needed For A Quick Look

All The Products Needed For A Quick Look

This formula is just enough to brighten up your face and look presentable for what the day brings.  I’ll start with Avon Extra Lasting Concealer around the eyes, nose and chin.  The wand makes it quick to apply and fingers melt it into the skin for nice coverage.  A blush and bronzer duo makes for a quick grab when doing this quick makeup look, I like Elf Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia.

For Face:  Concealer and Bronzer/Blush

When doing a quick eye look the key is just to open up the eyes with some mascara.  The best mascara for the job is the Avon Big and False mascara, because it’s a fiber lash mascara it almost curls your lashes for you, adds volume and length and gives you a full lash look that can stand on it’s own.  If you have a few extra minutes add a shimmery neutral eyeshadow and a quick swipe of eyeliner and you’re all set!

Lastly, it’s all about the lips.  I bolder color on your lips will tie everything together looking like you spent more than a minute on your look.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again these new Avon Perfectly Matte Lipsticks are the business so try a shade like Ravishing Rose for a bright choice.

Christmas season = red lip season!  Holiday makeup doesn’t have to be super involved to be festive, a little twist on the classic cat eye and a red lip are all you need!

Holiday Makeup: Gold and Black Cat Eye and Red Lip

For this quick and easy holiday makeup look I started with Avon Extra Lasting Concealer, because lets be real, we need to cover the dark circles and it needs to last all day.

For contour/blush I used the contour brush from the mark. Clutch Situation 5 piece Brush Set (that sequin clutch in the picture!  Talk about a multi-tasker!).  The contour brush is THE perfect brush, I’ve been needing it in my life.  Used with the Avon Pro Bronzer I was able to warm up my face a bit.

On the eyes I used the shimmering white shade from the mark. Dream Sequins Eye Pallet.  I used the eyeshadow brush from the mark. Clutch Situation Set just all over the lid.

I then lined the eyes first using Avon Super Extend Precision Liquid Eye Liner in black.  The thin felt tip is perfect to create a really nice sharp line.  I then followed up with the mark. On The Edge Hookup Liquid Liner in Gilt Trip, a metallic gold.  It’s hard to tell in the pictures (taking a good pic of your makeup is hard, let me tell you!), but I drew the gold line starting half way across the lid out past the outer corner past the cat eye flick I already drew with the black.  I then used it along the bottom lashes from tear duct to about half way across the eye.  This gave just the right amount of dimension and glam.

I finished off the eyes with Avon Big and False Mascara in Blackest Black.  Who has time to apply falsies, just use this mascara.  Look how long and full my lashes look, all the look of falsies with the ease of mascara!

Finally, complete your festive holiday look with a red lip.  I’ve said it before I’ll say it again, I like a matte red lip.  A matte formula wears longer and isn’t so in your face.  I’m wearing Avon in Matte Ruby (on clearance) or use mark. Lip Click in Siren.  But first line and fill in your lips with Avon Glimmersticks Lip Liner for a really perfect lip that lasts!
