A Spring Dress That’s Actually Functional For Spring

A Spring Dress That's Actually Functional For Spring

A Spring Dress That’s Actually Functional For Spring

Wear and Share Wednesday is all about the spring dresses! With Easter this Sunday, and numerous Spring events, I always find myself needing a new spring dress. The thing with Spring is it can still be pretty chilly, especially in the morning, you know, like when Easter service is and brunch! So not only do we need a new spring dress, we need a functional way to wear it.

Layering A Pretty Spring Dress

Layering A Pretty Spring Dress

This is why I love a long sleeve dress!  It gives you JUST enough to keep you warm in that spring breeze.  Layer it with a longer spring jacket like a trench and you can combat those overcast days.

I’m loving this long sleeve dress from mark., the Floral Femme Printed Dress.  Its a lightweight almost gauzy material so as the sun does warm up the afternoon you can push up the banded sleeves and bask in the warmth. Flowing, free-spirited and feminine, it’s the perfect peasant for springtime.  Plus the pretty pastel mint base with a print in living coral, navy and white make this an excellent on trend design.

Mixing Prints

Mixing Prints

For spring events layer this dress with a navy and white trench, (Expresss; old).  We are pulling that navy out of the print on the dress and pattern mixing with the nautical stripes.  Work your topper to match your dress for an even more polished look especially for things like Easter, baby showers, wedding showers, etc.  To keep the chill off even more I wore closed toe mules in white, (Express; old) and a spring scarf (Avon; old).

Pretty Prints and Pretty Baubles

Pretty Prints and Pretty Baubles

I styled this dress with a mint statement necklace and pearly accented bangles (Avon; old).  This allows me to dress up a boho dress for my Spring events.  Shimmery peach makeup finishes off the look in an appropriate, but also fun, way.

Moves Like Jagger

Moves Like Jagger

Moves Like Jagger

Wear and Share Wednesday has moves like Jagger… or at least that’s how I feel, a little like Mick Jagger in this OOTD.

Bell Sleeves and Striped Pants

Bell Sleeves and Striped Pants

My Mick Jagger Vibe really comes from these Hudson striped skinny jeans being paired with a very boho blouse from mark.  The mark. Tassel Without Hassle Tunic is described as “Unleash your desert spirit and let it roam for miles with flowy fits and boho-inspired silhouettes. Break free with the totally-airy tunic that takes you away on a spontaneous adventure.”  If that doesn’t embody the spirit of the 60’s… and 60’s Mick Jagger… than I don’t know what does.

My vibe isn’t so much boho or free spirit but I appreciate it so I took it in my own direction with pairing it with striped pants and silver and turquoise jewelry.  The mark. Third Layer’s A Charm Necklace is a real show stopper, take my word for it, but it also has that layered jewelry look all in one piece.  Mick Jagger vibes all in one necklace.

I just feel I could hop on a tour bus and do a summer tour in this outfit!  It was mega comfortable, and shout out to Liselda who’s Secret Santa Marshall’s Gift Card got me these Hudsons 😉

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!

Word on the Spring Essentials A Box:  Neutrals are a huge trend in beauty for spring so a neutral lip, and a fun eyeliner over a neutral eye shade are just the wear-everyday-essentials you need to spring into the new season.  I was expecting a dark brown lip color but Brown Sugar is really wearable.  The hit of this A Box is the travel size perfume, its the PERFECT size to take along in your bag and for travel and updating to a spring scent is just what the dr ordered!  It instantly transports me to a spring frame of mind and I just love the brightness to the scent.

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)

Avon True Color Dazzle Drops Swatch (Full Sun)

Word on Avon True Color Dazzle Drops ($14):  Get your glow on…and take it to the max! Whether it’s a strong streak of sun-kissed shimmer or a deep bronze glow, your customized radiant look will dazzle as much as you dare. 5 fl. oz.  BENEFITS  • Provides a luminous, light-reflecting, pearl, dewy finish  • Adds a touch of silky moisture

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

Word On the Easy On The Eyes A Box:  I’d buy this box just for the dark circle corrector!  Seriously, one of my staples.  I have always had dark circles and this product actually works at minimizing them.  Paired with the Anew Hydra Fusion De-Puffing Eye Serum I seriously looks bright eyed and bushy tailed, even though I’m not.  My pick for this campaign to build a $40 order and get that A Box for $10 would be:  $5 for 20 lip products, 2 for $35 Hydra Fusion (Eye Serum and new Over Night Treatment Mask) so that’s $55 add the A Box, so $65 for $155 worth of product.  I’m currently stocked on Hydra Fusion so I’m getting 10 lip products for $40 and adding the A box so 131 worth of products for $50!  You can’t beat it!  Take advantage of the 5 for $20 and this A Box you won’t regret it!  Follow me on Instagram (@wordofalicia) for my lip of the day lip swatches to help you decide.

What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You’re Attending

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.

Cute and Comfy Sweater Dress

Embellished Details

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.
