Make Up Tips And Tricks

Learn how to perform some magic with Avon!

Face Shaping: You can use foundation or pressed powder to accentuate your best features and minimize the others. All you need are 3 different shades: Base – a shade that matches your skin exactly. Highlight – a shade lighter. Contour – a shade darker. The Highlight shade brings features forward. The Contour shade makes them recede.


NARROW YOUR NOSE
Highlight down the center of your nose to the width that you want to appear, then place contour on either side of the nose. Blend well.
SOFTEN A HEAVY JAW LINE
Shade around square jawline to make that area recede and create a more oval shape. Blend borders with a base shade.
GET HIGH CHEEKBONES
Shade round cheeks to make them recede, then highlight top of cheekbones to make them more prominent and lifted like those of a model. Blend base to borders…beautiful!

Liptricks: Use lip pencils, gloss and concealer to transform lips.

1. TO MAKE COLOR LAST LONGER
Apply lip liner to entire lip area, use a lip brush to gently blend any hard lines around the edges and then apply a gloss or a lipstick.
2. TO TRANSFORM A LIPSTICK SHADE
Use a lip pencil as a base for lipstick to make it look browner, deeper or redder, depending on the shade of the pencil. For a shinier finish, use lipstick as a base for gloss.
3. TO MAKE LIPS LOOK FULLER
Apply a highlighter slightly above the natural contour of the Cupid's bow. Apply desired shade of lipcolor. Using a lip liner in a shade that matches lipcolor, follow the outer dimensions of the lips and trace around the lip line. Dab gloss on the center of lower lip.
4. TO MAKE LIPS LOOK THINNER
Blend foundation or concealer lightly over the edges of your lips. Dust translucent powder over the area. Using a nude lip liner, outline lips within the natural lip line. Fill lips with a pale shade of lipstick.
Optical Illusions: Play with light and dark shades of eye shadow to enhance the size of eyes or to bring eyes further or closer apart.

1. BRING WIDE-SET EYES CLOSER TOGETHER
Apply darker colors at the inner half of your lids, closest to the nose.
2. MAKE CLOSE-SET EYES APPEAR WIDER APART
Highlight inner corners with a light flesh-tone liner and shimmery pearl shadow.
3. MAKE SMALL EYES LOOK BIGGER
Line lower lids with a nude or very light color liner to make the whites of your eyes brighter.
4. MAKE EYES REALLY POP
Add a pale iridescent shadow in the center of lids and line lower inner lids with a white liner.
