5 Red Carpet Makeup Trends to Try

Red Carpet Makeup

Let the fashion pundits debate the gowns; when Hollywood stars saunter down a red carpet, our eyes are forever on their makeup. After all, while most of us don’t have the social calendar (or the budget!) for those dresses, the beauty looks are an achievable bit of glamour that any of us can wear. So, which red carpet makeup trends work best in the real world? From the latest smoky eyes to a colorful new twist on basic-black eyeliner, read on as Avon’s Celebrity Makeup Artist Lauren Andersen shares how to bring a little A-list beauty to your everyday look.

Jewel-toned eyeliner.

Black eyeliner has always been the LBD of makeup: It goes with everything and it always, always works. But lately, celebrity makeup artists have been expanding their eyeliner wardrobes by breaking out a rainbow’s worth of shades on the red carpet. “Eyeliner is the easiest way to incorporate a pop of playful color to your makeup,” says Andersen. Her pick: Avon True Color Glimmersticks Eye Liners. “They’re soft, they glide right on, and they come in so many different shades,” she says. Choose a color—eye-catching jewel-tones like plum, emerald, and sapphire are especially pretty for fall—then start drawing. Shape-wise, anything goes, says Andersen. Try a strong, extended cat-eye for a bold look or a thin, smudge-y line for a subtler effect.

Lots of lashes.

Stars have long known the power of mascara on the red carpet; it adds instant drama, making eyes look bigger and better like nothing else. “Mascara defines your eyes and makes them look way more open,” says Andersen. “It brings attention to them without a ton of eye makeup.” And the newest formulas, like Avon True Color Wide Awake Mascara, do it all with zero clumps, giving you voluminous, miles-long, amazing lashes that still look totally natural.

Colorful smoky eyes.

Smoky eyes are a perennial red carpet favorite—and this season, they’re getting a bright, beautiful update. “Smoky eyes don’t have to be black,” says Andersen. “I love a wash of color all over the lids paired with a corresponding colored liner.” To get the look, brush eyeshadow over your lids up to the crease (deep purple, olive, or cranberry are particularly gorgeous!), then smudge a similar color of Avon True Color Glimmersticks Eye Liner along the lashlines.

Groomed brows.

Whether thick, thin, or dramatically strong, brows have had many different iterations on the red carpet over the years. And this season’s brow trend is perhaps the easiest and the most flattering: full, groomed, but still natural-looking arches. Think your brows, only better. After combing the hairs up with a good stiff brush (we like the Avon Pro Brow Brush), fill in any gaps and define the shape with a pencil like Avon Glimmersticks Brow Definer. For the most natural look, choose a color that’s slightly lighter than your brows. “If you’re using a shade that matches, instead of one that’s lighter, your brows can get heavy-looking, quickly,” says Anderson. And keep your application light. “Use small strokes that mimic the hairs and fill in just where needed,” she says.

Matchy-matchy cheeks and lips:

Who needs the complicated guesswork of which cheek color goes with which lipstick? Forget all that, because sticking to one color family and matching your makeup is in. “I love a monochromatic makeup look right now,” says Andersen who adds that pairing similar tones on the lips and cheeks is the simplest, prettiest way to achieve this. “Try peach blush with a peach lipstick or berry cheeks with a strong, berry lip,” she says. Cool combos to check out: Avon Be Blushed Cheek Color in Tropical Peach with Avon True Color Lipstick in Silky Peach, and Avon True Color Ideal Luminous Blush in Cranberry with Avon Beyond Color Lipstick in Berry Cute.

How to Get That Red Carpet Glow

When award season rolls around, celebrities turn to their army of estheticians and dermatologists to get their skin plump, radiant, and photo-ready for the Red Carpet. Nice for them, sure, but who among us has the budget to keep an entire glam squad on speed dial? Here’s the good news: You don’t need to! By using the right skincare products and a few key makeup items, you can get similarly gorgeous results right at home. Read on to learn how to get an A-list glow—Hollywood zip code not required.

Red Carpet

Exfoliate regularly.

Our skin is constantly producing new cells, but if we don’t periodically get rid of the old, dead ones, they build up over time, leaving our complexion dull. Exfoliate once or twice a week though, and you’ll slough them away, revealing the fresh, new, glowy skin hiding underneath. Try Avon ANEW Clinical Extra Strength Retexturizing Peel Pads, which contain glycolic acid, or go with a physical exfoliant like Avon ANEW Clean Refining Daily Scrub.

Avon Nutraeffects

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

Any star worth her SAG card knows that proper hydration is essential. After all, the more parched your skin is, the more wrinkles will show. (Not to mention, dry facial skin leads to flaky, uneven foundation!) That’s why celebs are always lugging around jumbo water bottles—and loading on rich moisturizer. To keep your skin soft and plump, try the new Avon NutraEffects line, which hydrates using chia seeds, a superstar ingredient that is rich in omega 3 fatty acids and can hold up to 12 times its weight in water. Choose the Hydration Day Cream for 48 straight hours of serious moisturization, or the Radiance Day Cream, which also hydrates and contains exotic Bird of Paradise seed to brighten skin.

Red Carpet

Add some highlights.

Even the most glowing complexion can always benefit from a little extra boost. Get it with highlighter! After putting on foundation, apply Avon True Color Bronzing Pearls (a bronzer and highlighter in one!) on the tops of your cheekbones, above the outer corners of your brows, down the center of your nose, and dotted in your cupid’s bow. If you’re wearing a strappy dress or top, you can even swipe a little on your shoulders and collarbone. The glimmer will catch the light beautifully whether you’re posing for the paparazzi—or just taking a selfie.

Gild your lids.

Let your eyes shine with a wash of shimmery shadow. Try choosing a shade that’s close to your natural skin tone–think luminous beige for light skin or taupe for deeper complexions. This way, the effect is less like makeup and more like a sexy, sparkling second skin. We love Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette. Finish up with a few swipes of black mascara (our pick: Avon True Color SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara), and you’re good to glow!

How to Go From Day to Night With Your Avon Cosmetics

Go from Day to Night with your Avon Cosmetics

Having the perfect date night look is essential and if you’re heading to it straight from the office, your Avon cosmetics might not be ready to go—even if you are. But we’ve got the fix! (And no, you don’t have to do a complete overhaul.) “Focusing on a few key areas is all you need to turn your makeup evening-ready,” says Avon’s celebrity makeup artist Lauren Andersen. These five steps will take your makeup from work to play—right at your desk.

Avon Cosmetics

1) Wake up faded foundation.

No matter how fresh and flawless your foundation looks when you leave the house in the morning, it’s likely taken a beating during the day. Hours of wear, your skin’s natural oil production, and desert-like office air can all take their toll. “Your skin gets dry, dehydrated, and flaky during the day, which can make your foundation look cake-y,” says Andersen. The good news is that you don’t have to completely reapply it from scratch. Instead, smooth any obvious flakes by rubbing those areas with a tiny dab of moisturizer. Then, spritz a light mist of water all over your face, and gently pat it into any areas where your foundation has started to rub off. “This reactivates your cosmetics and gives it slip again,” says Andersen. And of course, always start with a great, long wearing base, like Avon True Color Flawless Liquid Foundation, to ensure the highest possible staying power.

2) Reboot your lashes.

Long, dark lashes are an evening-makeup essential, but often they look less-than-stellar by the end of the day. To revive them, don’t even think of swiping on a new layer of mascara over the old one. “Mascara will rarely reapply well and will usually just get clumpy and flaky,” says Andersen. Instead, she suggests giving lashes a quick crimp with an eyelash curler. “It gives eyes a quick boost by instantly making your lashes look longer and your eyes more open,” she says. Try Avon Eyelash Curler with Avon True Color SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara.

3) Brush on blush.

A pop of color on the cheeks is the quickest, easiest way to brighten your face and reinvigorate your entire makeup look, says Andersen. Problem is, that cheek color you painstakingly applied in the morning has probably hightailed it out of there by the evening hours. Take it into overtime by swiping a bright shade on the apples of your cheeks (smile to find them), then blending well. Look for a formula with a radiant finish, like Avon True Color Luminous Blush, and you’ll add a little bit of sexy, perfect-for-evening glow along with the hit of color.

4) Go big on one feature.

Even if you tend to keep your makeup neutral during the day, nighttime is the perfect excuse to kick things up a notch. The secret to not looking overdone? Play up just one feature. “I like to add a little more drama to the eyes or do a bold lip. Both options takes you beautifully into night,” says Andersen. For eyes, try adding a darker shade of shadow along the lashlines, in the creases, or smudging the color under your eyes for a smoky look. A shimmery eyeliner, like Avon True Color Glimmersticks Diamond Eye Liner, is another fun way to quickly elevate your office look to party status. If you prefer to focus on lips, try a deep berry shade (a huge trend for the season!) like Avon Perfectly Matte Lipstick in Superb Wine. Or, you can’t go wrong with a classic red, of course. We love Avon True Color Lipstick in Perfect Red.

5) Shine on.

Shimmery cheekbones aren’t necessarily work appropriate, but they’re ideal once the sun goes down. “A little glow on your skin suggests a lit from within look and is so gorgeous for evening,” says Andersen. For a pretty, luminous effect, try applying a highlighter along your cheekbones, browbones, and down the bridge of your nose before heading out for the night. We like Avon True Color Bronzing Pearls, it not only gives you a bronzed glow but illuminates the skin as well! “This little bit of shine brightens your face, adds extra oomph to your makeup, and will catch the light beautifully,” she says.

Dear Lizzy: Why should I use a night cream?

Dear Lizzy,

I am really confused about all the types of skin care creams out there. I use a daytime moisturizer, but do I really need to have a night cream too?

Signed,

Confused

Dear Confused,

I can understand the confusion. There are so many products out on the market and they go by so many names. It is hard to keep them straight. But really there are two basic types of evening creams. For my purposes I am going to divide night cream into two broad categories so we can see the main benefits.


AntiagingAnti-Aging:
can also be called firming, anti-wrinkle and lifting. These products often contain ingredients like retinol, glycolic acid, salicyclic acid and retinyl acetate. All of these ingredients help your skin to increase turnover (meaning new skin replaces older skin quicker), which can help diminish the appearance of age spots and fine lines and wrinkles. However, these ingredients can be irritating and increase skin sensitivity. Skin sensitivity can increase when exposed to UV rays, so it is best to avoid sun exposure when using certain anti-aging creams. Therefore the best way to avoid UV exposure is to wear these products at night. Makes sense, right?Try the Anew AHA Refining Cream.

Deep Moisture:can also be called ultra-hydrating, deep nourishing and restorative. These products often just use higher levels of emollients so they are more moisturizing than their daytime counterpart. There is no real reason why you need more moisture at night, your skin does not absorb ingredients any better. Your skin is constantly regenerating, so if you are happy with the level of moisture you receive from your daily moisturizer than you likely do not need a separate night cream. However, if you find that your skin is drier when you are at home you may want to use a heavier cream at night (or invest in a humidifier!).Try Avon Anew Overnight Hydration Mask.

Are evening creams different than day creams?

In many cases, not really. Day moisturizers tend to be lighter and usually contain SPF. Night creams do not contain SPF (which does make them feel different) and are often heavier and more hydrating. Anti-aging evening creams may contain higher levels of active ingredients since they are specifically intended to be worn at night to minimize irritation from UV exposure. Of course, they are many anti-aging day creams available as well. But if you find that your anti-aging day cream is irritating, you may want to switch to a night cream and stick to a regular moisturizer for day use. Also, be sure to look for the ingredients I mentioned earlier (in particular, retinol and retinyl acetate) since they can be especially irritating when worn during the day.

Bottom Line

If you are happy with your daily moisturizer and do not experience irritation then you probably do not need a separate evening cream. However, if you are looking to amp up those anti-aging benefits or you find your current anti-aging cream to be irritating, you may want to consider a separate night cream to help minimize the increased skin sensitivity these ingredients can cause when exposed to the sun.

Avon Animal Testing: What’s the Truth?

Avon Animal Testing

Does Avon Inc. test on Animals? The short answer is…no…and yes.

The news was broken after animal rights organization PETA removed the companies from their cruelty-free list after discovering that they had returned to using testing on animals for their products in certain countries. The three companies began the tests again in order to satisfy regulations from the Chinese government so they could sell their products in China.

While it’s true that PETA includes Avon on its “companies that do test on animals” list, that categorization is not completely accurate.  There are two companies that do business selling Avon Products.

New Avon is the company for North America, covering Canada, US and Puerto Rico.  New Avon has not tested on animals since 1989 and still does not.

Avon Inc is the company for Euro and Asia.  They also do not use animal testing for the majority of their products, but they do make exceptions in countries where local laws mandate additional safety testing on animals be performed:

In June 1989 Avon Inc, announced a permanent end to animal testing of our products. Avon was the first major cosmetic company in the world to end animal testing. For more than 25 years Avon Inc. has substantiated the safety of its products without animal testing.

Avon Inc. does not conduct nor request animal testing in order to substantiate the safety or efficacy of any of its products or raw ingredients. Our approach to safety evaluation utilizes extrapolations from existing data as well as from computational modeling, in vitro (test tube/cell culture) testing and clinical tests on human volunteers. In some countries, some products may be required by law to undergo additional safety testing, and this may include animal tests. In these instances, Avon Inc. has attempted to persuade the requesting authority to accept non-animal test data.

What does “except where required by law” mean?

Some scientific or regulatory authorities may still conduct or require animal testing by law of cosmetic products or ingredients to demonstrate safety. For example, before we are able to import any of our products into China, the Chinese government requires all importers of cosmetics, including us, to pay for animal testing that is conducted by a government-mandated laboratory in China. Since 2016, some of these laws have changed through the constant education that Avon Inc. and other companies provide to these countries to find alternatives to testing.

I am opposed to animal testing. Can I still use Avon products with confidence?

You can be confident that both Avon companies share your commitment. Opposition to animal testing and respect for animal welfare has been a cornerstone of Avon’s product safety program since 1989 when Avon became the first major cosmetic company to end animal testing. We do not test on animals today. Instead, we use non-animal product safety testing methods. Unfortunately, a few countries require additional safety testing, which may include animal testing. Avon, in partnership with other organizations, works to help advance government acceptance of alternative non-animal testing methods. But if a compromise cannot be reached, we must comply with the testing required by local law. Animal testing is an issue faced by all global beauty companies. Our shared goal is to permanently end all requirements for animal testing wherever they exist, around the world.

Can’t you choose not to sell your products in these countries?

Over our 130 year history Avon has served as an agent of positive change for critical issues, including women’s empowerment, human rights, environmental sustainability, diversity, animal welfare and much more. When faced with challenging situations around the world, our commitment is to remain in the countries affected and work to bring about change, such as the acceptance of non-animal testing methods. Abandoning a market does not help bring about a solution.

As an individual corporation doing business responsibly around the world, Avon does not believe it is in a position to call out specific countries and governments. However, in some countries where we do business additional safety testing is sometimes required by law. We are encouraged to see that China recently eliminated the animal testing requirement for certain products. However the country still requires testing on “special use” products (sunscreens, anti-pigmentation/whitening product, deodorant, fitness/slimming products, breast beautifying products, depilatories, hair growth products, hair perm and hair dyes).

It should also be noted that the laws requiring animal testing in countries such as Brazil and China have changed since PETA decided to boot Avon from its “companies that do not test on animals” list. For instance, in January 2014 Governor Geraldo Alckmin signed a bill that prohibited cosmetics testing on animals in Sao Paulo, Brazil. China has also decided to lift the animal testing requirement on ordinary cosmetics produced and sold in that country.

It is not wholly accurate to say, however, that these companies have “resumed animal testing.”

So again, New Avon, the company that does business in North America does not and has not tested on animals since 1989. No products made or sold in the United States, Canada or Puerto Rico have been tested on animals.
