Jillian Dempsey seems to have the best job in the world. She is a top Celebrity Makeup Artist and AVON’s Global Creative Color Director a position she took since 2006. She is married to actor Patrick Dempsey so the mystique about Jillian for me is major. I feel she adds greatly to AVON’s makeup collections bringing to us beautiful makeup inspired by her work with Hollywood celebrities and fashion. Yesterday I was given an amazing chance to get to ask Mrs Demspsey some questions about the latest from Jillian Dempsey for AVON makeup line and AVON’s Spring/Summer 2011 makeup and AVON’s Bridal makeup looks. BTW Did you know lipstick is the best seller product at AVON and AVON just turned 125 years and their moto is all about INNOVATION.
L to R: Jillian Dempsey with model
Marta Walsh: As Avon Global Creative Color Director how do you go about deciding which products are worth creating or re-creating for example the NEW Jillian Dempsey For AVON professional corrector palette and Jillian Dempsey For AVON professional eye smokifier?
Jillian Dempsey: It’s a combination of understanding the latest technologies, what women want, and my experience as a Makeup Artist. This how we come out with the latest and greatest products for AVON.
AVON Spring Summer 2011 makeup look is playful.
AVON’s bridal makeup look
MW: Which makeup look never go out of style?
JD: The smoky eye and the different variations of it.
Marta Walsh says: “I’m so glad to hear this because I love smoky eye and I wear it almost everyday. It’s called beauty addiction. I say don’t be afraid of smoky eye at any age and sounds like Jillian Dempsey approves.”
IT color for the season according to Mrs Dempsey: Popsicle.
What tired mom can use to conceal tired eyes or dark under eye circles from lack of sleep? According to Jillian mixing the pink (that covers grey) with the apricot that covers blue at the Jillian Dempsey For AVON professional corrector palette.
The must-have bridal makeup according to Jillian: waterproof mascara, applying 20% more blush than normal, and translucent powder.
Here is the list of all the AVON products that were used to achieve the beautiful makeup looks by AVON: Spring Summer 2011 & bridal. I must say I love both looks they seem very fresh, sweet, and girly.
