25 Uses for Avon True Color Dazzle Drops

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)

Easy Summer Makeup with 1 Product – mark. Touch And Glow Shimmer Cube In Coral

Easy Summer Makeup With mark.

Easy Summer Makeup With mark.

Summer makeup needs to be 3 things:   1.  Easy, no one wants to spend all morning putting on layers and layers of makeup, esp in summer humidity.  2.  Fresh, an over done face just doesn’t work in the summer time, sorry it just doesn’t.  3.  Packable, with summer vacations, day trips, and just being on the go you need something transportable and isn’t going to spill or burst with elevation changes.  I found THE product that fits all these and more mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes in Coral.

One of mark.’s cult favorite products is it’s touch and glow shimmer cube (original, see post here).  Earlier this year they released a coral version, and honestly, I have no idea how I waited this long to pick this one up! This is the 1 product solution to your summer makeup routine.  The obvious use is to use it as a blush and/or highlighter but this killer product is one multi-tasking cream to powder wonder!

Summer Makeup Look Using ONLY mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cube in Coral.

For my easy summer makeup look I used the Touch and Glow Coral on my cheeks, for contouring, as eyeshadow and on my lips!  Only tools I used were my fingers and the mark. Travel Pro Brush Set.  Because it’s smaller I was able to get more control.  Here’s how I used it:

On Cheeks: I swirled all colors and applied to the apples of my cheeks using the mark. Travel Pro Blush Brush.   For contour I used my finger in shade 6 (2nd row far right shade) and went along my temples to under the cheek in a C shape.

On Eyes:  I used my fingers to apply shade 2 (top row middle shade) all over from lash line to brow.  Then I used shade 3 (top row far right shade) on my inner corner and half of lid and under the lower lashes.  Lastly I used a mix of shade 1, 4 and 6 on the outer half of my lid.  I lined my eyes again using the travel pro brush set with mark. Saved By The Gel in Cool Azul from the Instant Vacation Buenos Aires Vibe Collection (see here).  Finished with Avon Super Extend Winged Out Mascara.

On Lips:  For this very on trend lip color I used shade 8 (bottom row middle shade) applied with the lip brush from the mark. Travel Pro Brush Set.  Done and done!  It’s similar finish to those matte liquid lipsticks (like from Nyx) that are super popular.  It even lasted through eating lunch!

Word Of Alicia Review on mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes in Coral:  Anything that multi-tasks this well gets two thumbs up from me.  Let me note it’s really hard to take pictures of your makeup (my eyes did not want to open!) so these were taken in the shade so the colors are a bit more vibrant in real life.  The color pay off on this is great but it isn’t a super long lasting formula.  When applied in the morning before work I had to touch up after work before meeting up for dinner, but really, that’s still pretty decent.  And I like how it has just the right amount of shimmer nothing too overwhelming and will be flattering on all skin types and tones.  I’m just mad I didn’t get this one sooner!
