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

  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!

  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!

  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.

  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!

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).

Week O’Nautical – Beach Please

Week O'Nautical - Beach Please

Week O’Nautical – Beach Please

It’s that time again… Week O’Nautical time! The week before our summer holidays, (Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day) I theme out my life with nautical influenced red, white, and blue! Unfortunately, this year, I’ve come down with a bad cold so WON gets a late start.  Memorial Weekend is all about fun and sun as it begins the unofficial kickoff to summer.  Lucky for me, my mom was still here visiting so we spent her last day poolside… well hot tub-side because the pool was too cold, but regardless we took advantage and had some fun in the sun.

Today’s look may of been meant for louging poolisde, but it would be just as great beachside or at a casual picnic or bbq.  These nautical mark. Beach Bum pants with sailboat print, were the perfect cover up that looked just as good as an outfit as they did over my suit.  And they have pockets!  I paired the mark. Beach Bum pants with a white sweater tank from Express.  A white summer sweater always feels so nautical to me.

Beach Please!  A fun in the sun look isn’t complete without a fun sun hat!  This Avon Beach Please Sun Hat was the perfect topper along with my, Avon Floral Jelly Flip Flops in orange and naucial watch and earrings (Avon Seaside Gardens Capsule Collection).

To be a little more extra I also used the new Avon True Color Sandy Beach Bronzing Pallet (launching May 30th), which was AMAZING!  All I needed was this pallet and some mascara for a perfect beach makeup look.
