Avon Summer Look

I was compensated by a brand or company but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Avon Makeup

As we head into Summer or heck I hope we’re heading into Summer since the weather has been terribly cold for this time of the year. But none the less my head is still filled with long warm days and as we head into the sunny season ahead I always like to lighten up on my makeup routine! Typically I want a lighter textured foundation, CC, BB Cream, or tinted moisturizer that provides sheer coverage but remains light without making my skin oily. I also like fresh pops of color on my eyes and lips with a more nude, natural eye look!

I’m also obsessed with corals around this time of the year as they always give my cheeks such a luminous glow.

What’s your favorite Summer makeup routine? What sorts of products do you use around this time of the year? How about shades you like to use?

I created my Summer Look using some fabulous products Avon recently sent me and I’m so happy with the way it came out.

Take a look!

Avon Makeup Swatches

To start my look I used Avon Ideal Flawless CC Color Corrector Cream. CC Creams provide great lightweight coverage that gives you that “my skin but better” finish! Avon’s formula has an SPF 50 so it not only evens, smooths, and brightens but also gives you plenty of protection from the sun! If you need a little more coverage you can go with Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation which is a fabulous lightweight foundation that provides flawless coverage in a lighter textured formula.



I got a little crafty with my eyes as I wanted to go neutral but I also wanted to play them up a little and there’s no better way to do that than by loading up lashes with mascara. Fluttery lashes make eyes look brighter, wider, and less tired! Avon’s Wash-Off Waterproof Mascara gives my lashes a fluttery appearance without a stiff, crunchy texture! As you know already I’m not a master at the winged cat eye look and I also happen to not be an expert with liquid liner! On my lash line I decided to be a little creative and used Mark What a Line Max Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner! I used Chocolate Gleam which is a lovely golden brown and as I’m not an expert at liquid lining I decided to apply it and gently smudged it out with the tip of a cotton swab. This gave my eyes a slightly smoky appearance plus it concealed the fact that I can’t do a straight line for MY LIFE with liquid liner haha! The formula sets fast so if you want to replicate this look you’ll have to line and smudge quickly to get it to work! I didn’t bother with eyeshadow as I thought the combination of the mascara and eyeliner created a really neutral yet eye popping look without the need for shadow!



Finally to complete my look I knew I needed a pretty shade of Summer on my cheeks so I headed in with Mark’s newest Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palette in Coral Glow and dusted it gently on my cheeks with a kabuki. These have a really fun hybrid formula that’s part cream and part powder. You can use fingers or a brush to apply but I find fingers actually work best because of the soft, creamy texture. Just smile, dot onto your cheeks, and blend out! Or grab a kabuki and buff onto your cheeks. This is probably one of my favorite Touch & Glow Shimmer Cubes Palettes (Yeah, I do own them all haha) because it contains an array of corals, peaches, and lovely golden hues that give cheeks a luminous touch of golden peach which is perfect for your Summer look!

Now the piece de resistance to complete my look! The new Avon Ultra Color Indulgence Lip Color! I had to question why I hadn’t yet tried this formula? You all know I’m terribly obsessed with Avon Lipsticks as they are beauty budget friendly, super pigmented, with incredible formulas. Ultra Color Indulgence Lip Color is no difference. What a great formula for Summer! They have a tasty watermelon flavor with a lightweight balmy consistency that give lips a hint of moisture! These have a very nice texture that glides on lips easily and wears comfortable for a solid four hours. My favorite part? The fact they have such a shiny finish! I tried the shade Poppy Pink which gave my lips a pop of vibrant fuchsia!



Avon has some fun Summer offerings that won’t break your beauty bank. As you prepare to transition into sunny pool weather I’m sure you’ll be stocking up on lightweight makeup that’s easier to wear and available in fun Summer shades!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

      oh gosh no Maria! but you’re lovely to say that! I stink at application but I have fun I guess that’s all that matters right? 🙂

  • Kimmwc03

    Looks lovely. I think you’ve convinced me to get that shimmer cube.

    BTW, it’s been terribly hot here in the DC area. Makes me not want ot wear any makeup.

    • Isabella Muse

      seriously love this one! I have the original shimmer cube Mark put out but Coral Glow is amazings 😀 Lucky! Rain rain and more rain in NY!

    I have tried that lipstick, in Black Rose – hated the flavor, LOVED the look. They’d used it in a video on their site to great effect.

    Avon rocks, but their swatches on their site leave me in pain, the inconsistent use of color names from country to country makes researching swatches difficult, and I just want to buy it in stores, you know? You’re right, their lipsticks are amazing – Rich Plum is gorgeous. The company is practically a heritage brand, wish it got more love!

    • Isabella Muse

      Oh it would be so nice to be able to walk into a store and swatch avon lipsticks ;-D

  • Gloria Lassich

    I love Avon’s lipsticks too! I’ve tried the ultra color indulgence lipstick in honey flower which is a nice deeper neutral. I’m gonna have to try some of the brighter shades. Poppy Pink looks stunning! 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      I need that honey flower shade! You’re the 2nd person that recommended it 😀

  • cgfau

    I love their CC cream and the new lipstick. I need to try the foundation! Thanks for the review.

  • Nataile Brown

    This is such a pretty Summer look! The lip color is gorgeous on you too. 🙂
