#OOTD| Summer Meets Fall with a Pop of Color

in beauty, OOTD

avon4You may have noticed that I typically do not wear eye shadow.  In a previous post I’ve discussed the fact that there is a learning curve when it comes to contouring, much less color selection. Too much of a bright shadow and it’s quite possible that you could resemble a long lost relative of Bozo. Not enough and you risk your look appearing incomplete.

Avon has taken some of the thought process out of it all. The True Color Quad includes a color application guide (on back) which helps the eye-shadow-challenged, like I, know where each color is best placed; also making application time efficient. In the photos below I actually free-handed it. I was interested in something barely there, considering it was high day. I think I did a good job of avoiding the dreaded clown eye shadow. I also applied the Avon mascara, lipstick and lip gloss atop.

My Hair is a quick updo where the hair at the crown is actually two large pin curls and the back is braided into a french braid.

Very nice! I don’t wear eyeshadow for the same reason, but this looks really good.
