Cat Eye Red Lip

Hello Beautiful!

Hope everyone had a nice Easter and enjoyed the time with family and friends! This weekend gave me precious time with my mother and time to play with my make up!  I also, got new treats today for my cat eye and my no-smear red lip! HOW EXCITING!

After the tutorial I will put what products I use!

1. Chanel makeup artist Rachel Goodwin suggests curling your lashes, then dotting on a light layer of eye-shadow primer or oil-free foundation from lids to brows. Both grip onto makeup, preventing color from migrating.

2. Gently pull your lid upward so you can see its inner rim. Line the rim with a few coats of jet-black waterproof pencil. Then line the inner rim of your lower lash line.

3. Next, use the same pencil to line the skin directly above your upper lash line. Blend color into lashes with an angled brush.

4. Layering liquid liner over pencil is the key to a stay-put look—the liquid dries and locks down the first layer of color. With a black liquid-liner pen, make four evenly spaced dashes over the pencil line, then connect them.

5. Now it’s time to create the winged-out edge. Close your eye, and trace a finger along your upper lid’s crease, moving outward. When it meets the bony part of your eye, mark the spot with a dot of liquid liner.

6. Place the tip of the liquid-liner pen on the dot, and drag it to the outer corner of your eye, thickening the line as you go.

7. Once the liner has dried, dab your lid with a cream colored liquid shadow, then place a metallic version on the area just above your crease line and inner corner. Like creams, liquids catch light but stand up better to the heat. Finish with two coats of black mascara.

8. Go be sexy!

The Red Lip

Hello beautiful!

Who does not love a nice red lip!  If you are like me your red lips always smudge or end up on your teeth more than on your lips.  Thank goodness for Pinterest.  I found how to get the look you are going for.  (Below the steps are the list of Avon products you would use!

Source: http://thebeautydepartment.com

1) Using a toothbrush or disposable mascara wand + lip balm, remove any dead skin by gently scrubbing in circular motions. **This is crucial especially when wearing a matte finish!

2) Outline the perimeter with a nude liner to prevent feathering.

3) Apply red lipstick directly from the tube.

4) Using an eyeshadow blending brush + translucent loose powder, powder your lips to really set the color.

5) Apply a second coat with a lip brush to smooth edges + perfect lines.

Lip Balm – Care Deeply Lip Balm  – 79 ¢ – page 78 – 048-603
Nude Lip Liner – Ultra Luxury Lip Liner – Neutral – 2 for $3.99 – page 79 – 356-249
Red Satin Lipsticks – Berry, Berry Nice – page 64 – 944-578 | Red 2000 – page 64 – 944-711 | Perfect Red – page 64 – 736-964
Red Shimmer Lipsticks – Country Rose- page 64 – 944-620
Red Matte Lipsticks – Rich Ruby – page 64 – 243-847
All lipsticks on page 64 are $2.99!

You could get the lip balm, two different lip liners, and a lipstick for just $7.77! That is just a fraction of what you pay for a tube of lipstick at a department store.

Check out the list of items at http://www.youravon.com/lesleyannek and let me know what you would like to purchase!

Remember, you are beautiful!

Please Hold

Hello Beautiful!

Hope you are enjoying this weather and showing off your toes.  If you aren’t, maybe you need too and paint them with some Avon nailpolish!  I got a list of ones I have used and love them all.  I also, ordered more!  If they are painted, but rough around the edges try some footworks!  I have used Foot Works Overnight Renewing Foot Cream and Foot Works Intensive Moisture Foot Cream  and love both of them.  My mom had cracked heels (sorry mom!) and they looked much better after a day!  Her feet were smooth and soft!  And they are now only $3.99!  Why not try them out.  Clink on the links and it will take you to the products!

Now on to the main reason I am writing this post.  I tried mark. Please Hold Eye Primer and when I got it I was very skeptical.  I searched high and low for eye primer at drug stores and when I saw Avon/mark. had this I knew I had to get it!  I tried it and on the first day I used the denim blues eye quad and sure enough at the end of my work day the eye shadow looked the same as it did when I went to work.  I first thought, this is just a fluke.  So day two, I tried a different eyeshadow, Mega Impact Eyeshadow, and same thing stayed on all through work!  After a week, I knew this stuff worked.  I swear by this product.  Why not try it?  It is only $8, but if you buy it on campaign 8, I will discount the mark. Please Hold Eye Primer, 20% (Direct Order ONLY)!  If you don’t like it you can return it and get your money back!  Let me know how many you would like!

Remember, you are beautiful!

Eye Am Back!

Hello Beautiful!

I am back after several requests to write.  Things have been crazy and I am glad people are showing me love and support!

Since the last time I wrote Avon got new mascara in and I am absolutely floored at how amazing it is!  I am a mascara nazi and this one passes the test!  It is called Super Extend Extreme Mascara and makes your eyes pop.  It makes your eyes look a little wider and lashes can look up to 87% longer!

I do not have a picture of it but will post one next time I write a post.  

In campaign 7, it is $5.99 down from $9.  A $3 discount, why not try it out!  It comes in both black and brown black!  Let me know how many you would like and I will put you on the next order!

Remember,you are beautiful!

Hello Beautiful!

Hello Beautiful!

My name is Lesley and I am an Avon lady! Let me tell you a little about myself and what I plan to do with this blog!

I am from a town called Wadsworth; it is about 35 miles away from Cleveland and a couple miles short of that from Akron.  I live with my mom, who is my best friend.  And I have brother that just got his PhD in nanotechnology in June of 2011.  It is just us three now, but somehow we all get along and admire each other in a way that others probably do not understand.

I am a freelance photographer and graphic designer and absolutely love it.  My clients inspire me in more ways than just one.  I wake up and think how can I impress them more than I did the day before.  And this is all where the Avon comes into play.

A great and dear friend of mine (also a great photographer) came to me and asked if I was interested in selling Avon.  I thought awesome I can get good discounts on my make-up.  Then as I started getting into it, I loved it more.  I am now considering going to cosmetology school to become a make-up artist then maybe going back to get my masters in photography.

I searched the web and found out that now is not a good time for me to go back to school. This pushed me to educate myself.  I read more tutorials than books I read in college.  And that of course lead to this blog that I am sitting here writing now.

I hope to take what I learned and educate you.  You guys are my audience and I hope you guys will inspire me and motivate me more than you already do.  I will also, critique, review and sell my Avon products with all of you.

Enjoy the blog and remember you are beautiful!
