As the saying goes, you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. Whether it’s a celebration like graduation day a promising job interview (cue nerve-induced upper lip sweat) or meeting a new client for the first time, you want to look as good as you feel — or maybe even a little better. And what better way to accomplish this than picking your favorite feature and taking it to the next level? We are talking bold brows, intriguing eyes and standout pouts.
Read on to discover how to define your favorite feature, helping give you the confidence to create that solid first impression.
All About The Brow
The brows are your nonverbal communication’s communicators — potentially revealing all your emotions (nerves, excitement, surprise) during a first impression — which is why it’s important to keep them bold and beautiful.
After a quick grooming session, pencil your brows with a shade no darker than two hues deeper than your natural color. We suggest Avon’s Glimmersticks Brow Definer for smooth, glide-on application. Next, apply an illuminating eyeshadow like Avon’s True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Berry Love. Brush a layer right below the brow line, as well as the inner corner of the eye to highlight and brighten the brow’s surrounding area. Keep the rest of your regimen simple so the focus stays on your fierce arches.
Read Between These Lines
Experts say maintaining solid eye contact is one of the most crucial steps in making a good first impression. So why not draw attention to those deep browns, baby blues or ivy greens with an elevated liner? Grab Avon’s Glimmersticks Eye Liner in Blackest Black and line the entire eye. Then balance out the intensity of this technique with a flawless dewy glow. Take a light foundation, we suggest Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation, and swap the powder for an illuminating bronzer like Avon’s Glow Bronzing Pearls.
Give Em’ Some Lip
Looking for an instant confidence booster to calm the inevitable first impression jitters? Look no further than an eye-catching lip. A saturated, semi-matte hue — we are partial to the vibrant shade of Ultra Color Indulgence lipstick in Rose Bouquet — can help you feel polished to perfection. Swipe on Avon’s SuperExtend Winged Out Mascara, and you’ve created an unforgettable look in two simple steps.
