Five Minute Face.


Fun Fact: my very first job was with Avon.

Door-to-door as a sixteen year old school girl, I spun my love of all things beauty into a job which allowed me to sell eyeshadow and perfume to my Mum’s tennis group and women in my neighbourhood.

It taught me about sales and make-up in equal measure.

So when Avon invited me to take the Avon True Colour Five Minute Face Challenge there was only one answer.

As a magazine editor ‘Five Minute Face’ was a beauty cover line.  As a working mother, it means the amount of time I have to dedicate to my make-up routine each morning.

In this video tutorial, I used just seven, very affordable products from the Avon True Colour range which is all about no-fuss, multi-tasking for women with limited time.

Which would be me.

With minimum skill I managed to achieve a fresher (fancier) look with time to spare.

Avon are giving you the change to win one of FIVE Avon True Colour Packs.
