Let’s talk about eyes. Mine are Green. I’m no professional but after spending some years with my own eyes I’ve learned what can make them look amazing! With any luck this is true for most people. I love neutral colors such as brown, tan, gold. Unfortunately, the colors that seem to work best with my eyes are bolder.. like pastel colors. Blue shades (although it has not been as BIG as it was in the 60’s) makes green eyes ‘pop’. Also I’ve found that pinks and purples also bring out green.
I’ve found that green eyes are somewhat rare. So you may be dealing with Blue eyes. Or Brown. Again.. any amount of time spent with a pair of eyes (and certainly if you ever had your way with Mom’s makeup bag) and you should have an idea of what you like best on your eyes.
That being said I’d like to share some products that Avon and Mark. have available for all eye colors. Please keep in mind that there are tons of products available. Click here to browse the current brochure. I am giving information on just a few tried and true products that I love. I’m going to start at the beginning and finish at the end. So let’s start with perfector.
Avon’s Magix Face Perfector has quickly become one of my favorite products. I live in the Sunshine State. So sun spots are a given. This face perfector smooth’s out uneven tones in your face. As the description indicates- this product can be used alone or as a primer under your foundation. I have used it both ways. Normally, I apply foundation after the perfector; however, there have been days where I was running late and my morning was not going well so I wore the perfector alone. I use the product over my whole face, but I pay special attention to corner’s of the eyes and close to hairline near the eyes to smooth out uneven tones in my face.
Next up is concealer. I use Avon’s concealer in light. Pictured is the Medium shade. I love the idea of using an eye primer (applied before applying eye shadow). I have used primer’s in the past and I am a fan; however, time is a big deal and saving time is an even BIGGER deal in my life. Mark. does have an eye primer and concealer available for those who have the extra minute or two to apply primer. Click here to check out the primer’s available from Mark. Back to the concealer- I use only concealer in an effort to save time. I apply concealer to my eye lids, as well as under my eyes, and the outside corner’s of my eyes. This helps to ‘conceal’ those dark circles or fine lines you may have started seeing in the mirror (keep reading to find out how to correct the dark circles and find lines when you are not concealing them). Avon’s concealer does a pretty good job at ‘priming’ my eyelids for eye shadow.
Next up… my current, personal faves!!
Once concealer is applied I move on to eye liner. I love Avon’s Glimmersticks!
Glimmersticks are available in many different shades and are pretty inexpensive at $7 regularly. While I do have several colors in my collection I use Black most of the time. I line my lower lid and well as my upper lid (as shown in picture). My personal opinion is that the colored glimmersticks can be worn alone or can be worn with shadow. Most days I use the black on upper and lower, in addition to eye shadow. I do sell lots of the Always on Point Eye Liner which is similar to the glimmersticks… just without the glimmer.
I have absolutely fallen in love with Mark. longwear eye shadow! Once my eye liner is in place I apply one of the gold tone’s available from Mark. for $10. The gold tones have served me well over the summer, with my ever-darkening tan.
I love both of these colors for the summer look. An you can see that they go well with Green eyes and with Brown. Click here to see all of the shades available from Mark. longwear. In my experience, these shadows do not crease or harden. They look perfect even after a stressful, 9-hour-day in the office.
Once your shadow is applied the right mascara will complete your eye look.
I have previously used the Super Shock (which looks much better than the picture included in this case). The brush is very good at separating lashes and lengthening. Lately, however, I have started using the Big & Multiplied mascara. After selling several of these and hearing rave reviews I had to try it for myself. The picture here does do some justice. I love this mascara! The length it gives is incredible.
I just want to say again that I have given an overview of my eye makeup look in a day, recently. My collection of Avon products goes far beyond what I have listed here; however, this is currently the look I am sporting. *Check back later for selfie 🙂 The list of products, yes, just for eyes, goes on and on. Avon and Mark. both have lines of liquid liner, gel liner, powder eye shadows in singles, doubles, quads… even 8 colors in one compact!
So your eyes have looked perfect all day with Avon’s products? Your eye shadow is not creasing.. your eye liner is not smudged.. and your mascara is not running. All has been well and now it is time to take care of your eyes (remember.. correcting when not concealing). Avon has products for that! Products that work and have been clinically proven to reduce imperfections! Anew by Avon has products for men and women, of all ages (20’s through 60’s+) and has products for all parts of the face… BUT we’re talking about eyes, right? So let’s talk about correcting the eyes.
Anew has several lines of products, based on age, that include: Anew Ultimate, Anew Platinum, Anew Reversalist, and Anew Vitale, which all include an eye system specifically for your eyes and your age group. Click here to view all products in the Anew lines. Anew Clinical goes above and beyond to help correct dark circles and bags or sagging underneath the eyes.
Now the ‘rest’ is up to you. I’ve noticed when I get plenty of sleep my face, in general, looks happier and healthier. Not getting enough sleep can contribute to (what may seem like) permanent dark circles and bags under your eyes. So get plenty of sleep.. & rest those beautiful eyes.
