Beauty School: The 5-Minute Color Makeover

For everyday beauty that keeps things bright and interesting with a pop of color, here’s your new go-to five minute makeover.

2 minutes: Natural Coverage
After putting on your daily moisturizer, prep your face with a primer and then apply your usual products. Whether you use a BB cream, powder, or foundation, your base should look natural. Make sure you’re using shades that match your skin tone and remember that for everyday beauty, less is more. Add a bit of color to your face with a light bronzer and rosy blush—just a touch on your cheekbones will do.

1½ minutes: Lashes and Lids
Use a natural color on your lids like champagne or tan, or leave them bare. The statement on your eyes should come from lust-worthy lashes. Use Avon’s Mega Effects Mascara for a dramatic result. Avon’s breakthrough Wonderbrush delivers corner-to-corner lash transformation for 24-hour volume, and darker, more dramatic results.

1½ minutes: A Poppin’ Pout
Here’s where the color comes in. Having kept the rest of your makeup subtle, your daily look calls for a bright lip. To achieve that, you want a product that’s easy to apply and stays on all day. Enter Avon Ultra Color Lipstick and Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss. With a translucent base, these pout-poppers allow for intense, vibrant color that’s true to their packaging. One application and you’re set. With a plethora of fabulous shades, it’s easy to find your color match.
