Talking Makeup had an exciting opportunity today to join Avon and Jillian Dempsey, their Global Creative Color Director, in a special Lipcast and get a sneak peak to hot summer lip trends.
In addition, Avon is launching 3 very innovative lipstick and lipgloss this season: Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick, Pro 3-in-1 Lip Wand, and SpectraColor Lipstick.
Economic datas may be falling down but lipstick is still selling like hot potatoes at Avon! I like to hear that women like to look good, even when times are tough.
Avon Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick, Pro 3-in-1 Lip Wand, and SpectraColor Lipstick are all multi-tasking, times saving, and simple to use. They come in very modern, wearable and versatile shades.
According to Jillian Dempsey the color inspiration for Avon latest lipstick and lipgloss collections comes from her love looking and observing people. Jillian likes to watch women in daily life and see which colors they like to wear depending on their lifestyle.
You’ve guessed it right Jillian Dempsey
is Patrick Dempsey’s wife.
According to Jillian Dempsey, the hottest lipcolor for the summer is coral, and different variation of coral ,such as: a pink coral, strong coral, or pale coral. Also, look out for bright pinks, lots of nudes and neutrals.
Best way to pick the right lipstick according to Jillian, is to pay attention to the shape of your lips. Are your lips thin, medium, or full?
If you have thin lips stay away from dark shades of lipstick, or do not over lined them with a dark lip liner. Work with your natural lip contour. Hard lip liner or a dark lip liner is one of the biggest mistakes women tend to make when it comes to makeup, according to Jillian.
Full lips can get away with nude, pale, or neutral shades of lipstick because these shades help in balancing your lips with your overall look, without making an overpowering lip statement. Jillian pointed out that Angelina Jolie for instance who has very full lips tends to wear nude and neutral colors. Other variables that go into the decision of choosing the right lipstick for you can be your eye color, hair color, and skin tone. Lipstick is a very personal thing girls:)
