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)

mark. just doesn’t launch a fragrance… we celebrate it by giving its own capsule collection! It’s not about the scent itself its about an entire mood.  Get the Night Iris mood head to toe… a pedicured toe that is, in our new night iris nailed-it shades. Night Iris is about purples and pinks, a striking print and the splendor of spring!

Fearless Vivid Color

Night Iris Capsule Collection

This has to be my absolute favorite launch from mark.  A complete capsule collection based off their new fragrance Night Iris.  I’ve been wearing this scent NON-STOP since I got it and haven’t looked back.  Its perfect for spring, it’s got enough heart to it that it works on rainy days, enough fun to wear out on the town, and enough sweetness to wear basking in the warm spring sun.  I can’t express how much I LOVE this collection.  Everything about it, the colors, the scent, the fashion, the new beauty items.  It all wears so seamlessly together to put that spring in your step as you leap out of winter.  This has been the BEST selection of products from mark. that I’ve seen in my opinion.
