Let me start by saying this… I am NO makeup artist. I might not use all the right techniques with the right brushes, but one thing I do know is that you can create stunning looks using the right products.
I have always been an Avon fan as they are affordable and don’t compromise on their quality. They recently launched a range called Mark. It is Avon’s expertly edited beauty and fashion boutique brand that is constantly launching fresh, on-trend and customizable products.
FOREVER BRONZE EYE SHADOW
This product is exactly what you need to create the illusion that you know what you are doing. It has an amazing shimmer to it and makes everything just look a bit more glam. This is a creamy eye-shadow and needs to be rubbed a bit to almost “warm up” for the best results. The creamy eye shadow really stands out on the eye lid and It blends well with other colors. It doesn’t flake so you can just smear it on and it will stay the ENTIRE day! I think that is what I love most about this product. The fact that you don’t have to keep running to the bathroom to go do your touch-ups.
MARK INTENSE KOHL LONGWEAR EYELINER – “INTENSE BROWN”
As you know by now I LOVE a good 2-in-1 product. This time it is an eyeliner with an added smudger. I was able to use it as a normal eyeliner at the bottom of the eye and on top of the eyelid. The smudger creates a super sexy smokey look – I am all about smokey eyes! It is applied smoothly and shows a strong color.
Firstly… How awesome is the packaging? It’s super trendy and somewhat retro too.
With the change of seasons, lipsticks usually get replaced for lip-ice. However, these lipsticks are very moisturizing and does not flake at all. It is basically like a lipbalm with all the characteristics of a lipstick. oh wait.. 2-in-1!! BOOM! SCORE! TOUCH DOWN!
Here is a video of how I combined these 3 Mark. products to create this look.
And to finish off the look I used the Mark. setting spray to make the long lasting makeup last EVEN LONGER!
