Sun filled beaches, cafe hot spots, light breeze, sunsets and balmy evenings, children's laughter, relaxation… summertime.
Life can get so busy and complicated and it’s not until summertime and the new year that we slow down and begin to re-evaluate our lives, our schedules and priorities.
How can we keep the simplicity of summer throughout our year? Loving our friends and family, keeping true to our feelings and making sure we prioritise ourselves and our families. Entertaining without fuss, enlarging our lives to include others, valuing time spent with those we love.
One area I like to stay uncomplicated is my makeup. This last year I have searched and found makeup that truly is fuss free and denotes summer simplicity which can last all year.
I tried many different types and forms of foundation last year including Cream to Powder and various liquids. I finally settled on Avon Mineral Foundation.
Avon has come a long way and continues to have an edge in the makeup market providing their customers with a no questions asked 90 day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. What other makeup company allows you to swap colours or makeup types until you are happy with your purchase?
I choose to use Avon Mineral Foundations. I prefer a dewy, youthful look from my foundation which the Avon Mineral Liquid Foundation on its own provides. However I also have in my makeup drawer Minerals Powder Foundation, with this you can create a flawless, full cover that lasts and lasts. It’s summer tested and lasts through perspiration and even quick swims so it is a perfect complement to Summer Simplicity.
Avon Smooth Minerals Liquid Foundation features a lightweight breathable formula that provides skin with a flawless, long-lasting finish. The formula contains mineral glow pearls to maximize natural vibrancy and skin radiance; and is free of talc, oil, artificial dyes and fragrances. Suitable for all skin types.
Avon Smooth Minerals Foundation Lightweight powder foundation containing 100% naturally derived pigments creates a luminous, flawless finish. Ideal for sensitive skin. 100% naturally nourishing with pure mineral colourants enriched with vitamins. Free of talc and fragrance. Free of dye and preservatives.
My other Summer Simplicity Favourites:
Avon Glimmersticks Retractable Eye Liner My favourite colours Saturn Grey for a soft day look and Blackest Black for a more defined or evening look. Glimmersticks have a colour-dense formula for a smooth, clean line. Glides on to define eyes with perfect precision. Long wearing. Swivels up and down so it never needs sharpening.
Avon Extra Lasting Lip Gloss (up to 8 hours) This lipgloss application is smooth and even, the colour I use is "Neverending Nude", it is a perfect companion to Summer Simplicity, it is natural looking and you don't have to keep re-applying it, so that means it is also very good value for money. Avon promotes this lipgloss as extra-lasting (up to 8 hours) and I have found that I only have to reapply a couple of times in the day to keep it fresh.
Avon SuperExtend Extreme Mascara I find this mascara gives the look of lash extensions. Lashes look longer and thicker. It has a Magnetic Fiber Formula - magnetic fibers work like magnets to instantly attract lashes and extend them to extreme new lengths. Summer simplicity tip: Apply mascara to the bottom lashes first to stop wet top lashes touching your eyelids before they are dry.
