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.
