Makeup doesn't have to be expensive and complicated. The team at Avon are on a mission to make beauty attainable and fun for moms. I recently hopped on a call with celebrity makeup artist Jillian Dempsey to find out about Summer Beauty Trends. Jillian is an artist for the stars. She's worked with so many glam moms like Kate Winslet and Maggie Gyllennhaal. She knows how to make a woman shine without looking overdone.
Jillian joined a group of Avon Blog Ambassadors on a call to discuss summer beauty trends and her new Avon products. The Ambassadors are helping Avon celebrate 125 of beauty. Did you know? Every second 4 Avon lipsticks are sold! What a brand.
For the anniversary year, Avon is focused on new and impactful innovations. Avon enlisted Jillian as Global Creative Color Director and relied in her to forecast new trends.
For this spring and summer, Jillian loves a bronze shadow, pink blush and "popsicle" colored lips. This look is fresh and pretty for every day wear--and perfect for busy moms. Tip: For pictures (anyone posing at BlogHer??) wear 25% more blush than you regularly would.

Momtrends: We hate when our eye shadow creases and our mascara smudges under our eyes. Does powder go on before or after shadow?
Jillian Dempsey:To keep makeup from creasing or smearing, put powder on before, eye shadow.
Momtrends: Which of the color corrector colors (see product below) is best for the dreaded under eye circles from motherhood?
JD:I can relate. Use the pink and apricot. The pink will cover grey hues and the apricot will mask the blue undertones.
Momtrends: If you can only jump on one beauty trend this summer what should it be?
JD:If you can only buy one product, make it a popsicle lip color.
Jillian has developed a line of products canned Jillian Dempsey for Avon. We were lucky enough to try the Professional Corrector Palette ($5.99--I told you the prices were great!). Jillian says, '??My new 4-in-1 corrector palette is my secret weapon for looking flawless. Before applying foundation, just dot and blend on areas that need perfecting. It addresses every concern'?¦all in one compact.'?
