One of the nice things about Avon Cosmetics is that they all have drugstore makeup prices. I try to switch it up and do some more affordable makeup looks for those of you who are on a budget, and Avon always has really pigmented products. I created an “Autumn Day” makeup look, featuring wine-kissed lips. The trick to pulling off merlot lips during the day is to keep the rest of your makeup soft. I’ve personally been on such a dark lipstick kick that my husband has commented on lighter lip colors recently saying, “Isn’t that a little too light for you?” He knows I’m loving my berry and wine colored shades. I’ve got the full look and products inside,
- Avon Kohl Eyeliner in “Intense Brown”
- Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in “Oxford Wine”
- Avon True Color Eyeshadow Duo in “Warm Cashmere”
The total for these three items comes out to around $21.00 USD, which is very comparable to drugstore makeup prices, if not more inexpensive.
I used the Avon Eyeshadow Duo in “Warm Cashmere” to sweep a light shimmering brown over my entire eyelid, and up past my socket. I blended it out well using the lighter shade in the palette. I also used the eyelid shade along my lower lash-line. To add some depth and definition, I used the Avon Kohl Eye Liner in “Intense Brown” along my upper lash-line and smudged it out slightly. This is enough to make your lashes look thicker and bring out your eye color without it being as intense or smoky as black. I love brown eyeliner for the daytime. It’s incredibly flattering on anyone and everyone.
For my lips, I used Avon’s Ultra Color Lipstick in “Oxford Wine.” It’s this gorgeously rich plum-wine shade. You only need the tiniest swipe of this to put down amazing color. It felt really moisturizing on the lips, too. This shade works for such a variety of skin tones, from very fair to dark, so it’s a great choice for the fall and winter months.
The look comes together with a light sweep of bronzer on the cheeks. If you’re intimidated by darker, bolder lip colors, especially during the daytime, this is a great look for you. The eyes are soft, yet enhanced, and the cheeks are contoured but neutral.
This is going to be my makeup for the rest of the day now while I run errands and help take care of my dad who is being discharged from the hospital today. The best part is the inexpensive price tag of the products used.
