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!

All that Glitters…

Hello Beautiful!

Happy Hump Day!  Today is a funky day.  Nothing seems perfect for me for the perfectionist in me.  My list at work was forever long, took me forever to do just one design.  I woke up with a headache and just in general ached.  And I am very behind on getting back to people about their Avon orders!  I promise I will get to you by tomorrow!

On a happy note, I redid my nails.  I get bored very easily with looking at the same all day.  [I type a lot so I do get bored with looking at the same thing, or maybe that is just my ADD kicking in.] Plus, I did need something to compliment my new Avon deal of the day ring!


What you will need:

  • Electrical Tape
  • Loose Glitter
  • Top Coat & Base Coat
  • Avon Nailwear Pro Night Violet
Image

Steps:

  • Paint your nails with base coat
  • Let nails dry
  • Take electrical tape and put where you want your straight lines to be. [I went half way down my nails. And ring finger I left with no tape]
  • Paint Night Violet on the non-taped part
  • Let nails become tacky and roll in loose glitter
  • Remove Tape
  • Let dry fully, then paint clear coat on just the tips.
  • After that top coat dries paint the whole nail with top coat.
  • KA-POW! Your nails are done!

Note: Let me know if you guys do this one.  It is very fun, but have patience on this one!  I do not have much of that, but some how I managed to get through it.  Trust me, you can do it!

Remember, you are beautiful!

Red Hot

Hello Beautiful!

Happy Sunday Funday to you all!

I got bored with the pink nails that I just did that I had to take it off and paint them a new color!  Plus red is more my color!  I once got a card from my mums that said “The world is at your feet, paint your nails red!” And from that day my toenails have been some shade of red!  Dark red, pinkish-red, red-red, orangish red, glittery red.  I could go on, but I think you guys got the idea! 🙂

There is no tutorial for this just a picture!  Nails are Real Red (#Avon – 944-931) and I am also wearing the Mood Ring that is coming out in Catalog #3.  I absolutely love the ring and it doesn’t even turn your finger green!

The Real Red nail polish is absolutely amazing and I have been addicted to it since I got it.  I used to wear OPI’s Got the Blue’s for Red and would choose Avon’s red over OPI!

Notes:

  • The mark. Fushia-istic is on sale for $2.99 in the Avon Outlet Campaign 3/4 Catalog.  It is on page 27.  It also comes with Stay Neutral. Definitely  a good steal!  Two nail polishes for $2.99!  (279-301)
  • Real Red (944-931) is also on sale in Campaign 3.  Mix or Match [Glimmersticks and Nailwear Pro], 3 for $9.99!  Save up to $11!  This special can be found on pages 48-51.
  • Lastly, the Heart Mood Ring is $9.99 and comes in Sizes 7 (787-512), 8 (787-527), 9 (787-531), and 10 (787-546).  It can be found on page 15 in the Campaign 3 Catalog!

  • mark. Fuschia-isitic
  • Avon Nailwear Pro Viva Pink
  • Electrical Tape
  • Top Coat & Base Coat [I didn’t use this because I just ordered mine]

Image

Photos were taking with my iPhone!  And I did remove the extra nailpolish off my finger.   

Steps:

  • Let nails dry
  • Take electrical tape and put where you want your straight lines to be. [I went from bottom corner to top corner diagonally. On Ring Finger I flipped the diagonal.]

NOTE: If using a base coat and/or a top coat there will be extra steps.  Make sure they are completely dry before applying new or different polish.  If tacky it will make your nails smudgy or dented if you hit them on something.

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!
