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.

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.

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.
