Not only does Avon have a long history of creating quality beauty products, the company paved the way for women’s empowerment and success. Including my own. The brand was founded back in 1886 and pioneered the direct selling business model, allowing women to earn an income and run their own beauty business. I began my own foray into the beauty industry years ago through Avon’s brand mark. Avon will always hold a special place in my heart!
Recently, Avon opened Studio 1886, an immersive experience for everything Avon. The Los Angeles-based studio features a makeup bar, skincare zone, consultations, digital try-on and more! Guests can take a dive into Avon’s history with iconic products and explore new innovations as well.
Read on to see how I’m using Avon beauty products for a soft glam fall look & a peek inside Studio 1886>>
This season I have been loving softer makeup looks and these Avon products are perfect to use to create those soft glam vibes. Mauve tones are my absolute favorites for fall so I stuck with those for this look.
Colors of Love Cushion Makeup
I was excited to try out the Colors of Love collection, which includes bronzer, blush and highlighter in creamy cushion compacts. I’ve only ever used cushion foundation so I couldn’t wait to play around with these. The idea behind cushion cosmetics is to use the sponge applicator to ‘stamp’ the color onto skin. What I love about this technique is that it’s buildable and looks seamless on skin.
Each of the products in this collection are infused with hyaluronic acid, water lily and antioxidant-rich green tea extract to moisturize and hydrate skin as you wear it. The result is a beautiful dewy finish! Since they have so many hydrating properties and creamy formula, I think these products would be especially great for those with mature skin.
For this look, I used the fmg Colors of Love Kiss Me Cushion Blush in ‘Queen Carnation’, a pretty mauve shade. The blush has a watercolor type effect on skin and you can apply lightly for a more natural flush, or build up the blush for stronger color.
To highlight my cheeks, I applied fmg Colors of Love Kiss Me Cushion Highlighter in the shade ‘Fairy Dahlia’, the lighter of two shades offered. This shade is a pretty pearlescent peach champagne and adds a gorgeous natural-looking radiance to skin. I found that this silky highlighter is more subtle than other highlighters I own but could easily be be built up without looking ‘too much’.
To give my skin an all-over warmth, I applied the fmg Colors of Love Sun-Kissed Cushion Bronzer in the shade ‘Morning Sunflower’. I used the included sponge applicator to apply the bronzer to the hollows of my cheeks for contour, as well as along the perimeter of my face to give skin a pretty sun-kissed bronze.
I love how pretty and natural the Colors of Love cushion products look– they blend nicely onto skin and are perfect for everyday wear. While they are designed to be applied with the included sponge applicator, I found that the products looked amazing applied with a synthetic bristle brush as well.
I used the Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow to create a rosy-hued eye look. These Glimmer Shadows are super creamy and can be layered, which is how I wore them. These are super fun to play with– you can mix shades or create a single, monotone eye look.
For my look, I first applied the shade ‘Pink Sapphire’ to my lid followed by ‘Jasper’ blended into my crease. I then applied Sunstone to the middle of my lids and inner corners. I found it best to blend with my finger, but can be used with an eyeshadow brush as well.
I applied the Love at 1st Lash Mascara, which has heart-shaped lash-hugging fibers to lengthen and volumize lashes. The mascara contains vitamins A, C and E to nourish as well as olive oil to strengthen lashes.
I think this is an excellent mascara for everyday wear. It doesn’t clump, flake off or smudge and there is even a waterproof formula. My lashes looked longer and had more volume, which is a must for me!
Hydrating Lip Color
To finish the look, I applied True Color Nourishing Lipstick in ‘Sparkling Rose’. Since I went with a deeper eye look I wanted a more natural lip color and this one was perfect. It matches my natural lip color almost perfectly and feels so comfortable on lips. This lipstick is Infused with marine collagen and jojoba oil to nourish, plump and soften lips. The color is long lasting and has a satin finish.
I love how this soft glam fall look turned out! The cushion products look so natural and the shadow sticks have a beautiful finish. Shop all the products featured in this look at Avon.com.
