Below are mark’s Celebrity Makeup Artist Mai Quynh’s makeup tricks for creating Ashley’s gorgeous look.

Face:
”I began by applying mark Calm & Composed Super-Soothing Moisturizer all over Ashley’s face. After creating a clean, moisturized base, I used mark Primed for Perfection Face Primer. Then, I applied mark Min-A-Real Cream-To-Powder Foundation in Natural using the mark Foundation Brush. To take care of any imperfections, I used mark Good Riddance Hook Up Concealer in Light/Medium under Ashley’s eyes and around her nose.”

Cheeks:
“For a soft, healthy flush, I brushed on mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Cheeky using the mark Foundation Brush to the apples of Ashley’s cheeks. Then, I dusted mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder in Buff/Natural to set the look. For an extra glow factor, I layered mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in Cameo Glo using the mark Blush + Bronzer Brush.”

Eyes:
“I prepped Ashley’s eyes with mark Please Hold Eye Primer in Light/Medium. Next, I applied mark Keep it Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Exposure to her eyelid, from her lash line to her crease using the mark Flat Eyeliner Brush. Then, I applied mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Java to her crease, blending it outward. To begin lining Ashley’s eyes, I used mark Keep it Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Entourage along her top and bottom lash lines using the mark Flat Eyeliner Brush. I extended the liner upwards and outwards for a cat eye effect. I finished Ashley’s eyes with two coats of mark Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Black to her top and bottom lashes.”

Lips:
“For Ashley’s lips, I used mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Toasty and mark Pro Gloss Hook Up Lip Gloss in Swell to create a gorgeous, natural smile.”

New Jillian Dempsey for Avon Pallettes

Let’s face it: makeup trends come and go. But the one constant is that we all want to simplify our makeup routine, yet still look ravishing and red carpet-ready. With that in mind, Jillian Dempsey has created a Professional Perfect Eyes Kit and Perfect Contour Powder Palettes for Avon, so women everywhere can achieve a flawlessly fabulous face without the fuss.

A Sexy, Smoky Eye, Simplified
Pro-Perfect Eyes:

Who doesn’t dream of creating the perfect smoky eye look? This wonder palette makes a sultry, smoky eye simple to achieve, thanks to its four shades that perfectly complement one another to highlight, accent and line eyes with foolproof application. “My new eye palette from Avon actually separates the colors into sections that mimic the shape of an eye, so you know exactly where to apply each color,” explains Jillian.

Now available in 4 shades: Deep Purple, Cinnamon, Smokey, and Aqua.

 

Face-Time
Pro-Perfect Contour Powder:
When it comes to makeup, they say less is always more. Who wants to apply layer upon layer of bronzer, blush and highlighter, only to end up with a cakey complexion that’s far from natural-looking. With this convenient compact, your routine is supremely simplified. Featuring bronzer, blush and highlighter that you can pick up with one smooth swipe of a brush, this compact makes it easy to add dimension for professional, sculpted cheeks every day.

Available April 2012 in 2 shades: Angelic and Blissful

Jillian Dempsey for Avon Professional Eye Smokifier.

The Professional Eye Smokifier makes a dark smoky eye so easy to create. It’s much easier than a liquid or gel liner the smooth sponge tip is easy to handle and the softer look means no stressing over a perfect line. I tried the Very Black I love how dark it is and the little silver sparkles, definitely makes your eyes pop.
