Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend…

Read my blog about feeling fabulous with inexpensive jewelry. Life is too short to not feel fabulous.

diamonds

I love it when MY style finally hits the fashion scene. I think most women, except for models of course, are like me. They don’t spend money on products because they are “in”. They spend money on products they LOVE! So how great is it when the products you LOVE are finally “in”??

This season has so many things I love that I’m having trouble pacing myself. For me… there is something about dangling earrings and clinky bangle bracelets that make my mood better. They make me feel like a girl. The kind of girl that feels pretty and feels confident. The kind of girl that makes everyone around her happy, just with her smile. The kind of girl whose laugh is contagious. We all know girls. And there are thousands of words we (both men and women) use to describe girls. But let’s be clear… there is something about diamonds and jewelry that make me feel like the kind of girl that everyone wants to be. Or be with.

*****MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS POST*****

*If you have not found what makes you feel this way and what brings out this part of you, as a girl, then please begin your search immediately! Life is too short not to feel fabulous. We will all (especially girls) have days where we choose bad mood. Or negative thoughts. But life really is too short to spend most of your days this way. So begin your search. Or do what makes you feel fabulous as often as possible.

With that being said… I want to share some of the things that make me feel fabulous.

ring3

The Fireworks Collection is new. & I’m already in Love! This Fireworks Cocktail Ring has finally come around, to fit my style. Click here to view more info on the ring and pricing. & if you Love this ring as much as I do, make sure to check out the matching necklace, bracelet, & earrings here. Now… I definitely realize how flashy this ring is. & it is either going to be a love or hate relationship; however, if you have not tried flashy, costume jewelry before I definitely recommend trying it at some point! Again… it’s all about how it makes you feel. Feeling wonderful & fabulous cannot be duplicated or fake, but it does not have to be expensive.

earrings1Another trend I noticed has come back around lately to fit my style is the teardrop shaped earrings. There are only a couple reviews posted on these earrings, but I noticed more than one review mentions how these earrings are great for daytime working or hanging out OR for night out / date night. Click here to see the latest teardrop shaped earrings available. And if you Love teardrops make sure to check out the Sunrise Collection.

The sterling silver line of jewelry is still what I would consider costume jewelry; however, the prices are a bit higher and the silver is sterling. I have several of these rings from this line that I wear daily.

ring2My necklaces, earrings, & even watches vary each day depending on my mood; however, I have grown fond of the sterling silver collection and have several pieces I wear each day, in addition to my wedding set of course.

I, personally, love black onyx and dark-colored jewelry, which brings me to my last “feel-fabulous” jewelry collection.

necklace1

The mark. Back Up Plan Necklace is gorgeous & can be worn three ways, to fit right in with your look. I love long, dangly necklaces especially in the winter when I get to wear sweaters and long-sleeve shirts (occasionally in Florida). Click here to see all of the jewelry by mark. And again… how convenient that this new line is out just in time to fit my style! 2017 is off to a great start, thanks to the designers (wherever they are) that are miraculously reading my mind!!

Be sure to check back, as there are some fabulous new pieces coming out soon. & I will say again: life is too short to not feel fabulous. & if you have never tried to feel fabulous with simple jewelry then I definitely think it is time you gave it a shot! It is cheaper than massages and lasts longer than pedicures.

All About Avon Eyes

Markeyes (2)

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.

AvonC16 (2)

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.

AvonC16 (4)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!

AvonC16 (6)

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.

Markeyes

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.

AvonC16 (7)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.
