Avon Beauty Vision Personal Color Computer

 

The Avon Beauty Vision Personal Color Computer is an altered Toshiba T1000 computer specifically for Avon. was designed to read a persons basic skin tone, the computer produces a printout of compatible cosmetic shades. This was a offered as a free service that could either be done in your home or a Beauty Vision get together usually held in an office, a mall or even one of the Beauty Vision representative's homes. This computer was made to help steer consumers to colors that would always look good on them.

How the system works is the skin tone analyzer is held against your cheek to take a series of readings that determine the skin's light range and color content. The computer then categorizes you into one of four color categories, cool, ultra cool, warm and ultra warm and prints out an analysis and color recommendations. The corresponding color groups are soft and classic, clear and vibrant, rich and earthy and bright and sunny. The printout recommends two foundation shades, one that matches your natural skin tone and another for a more enhanced look in the evening or a summer tan. The analysis also provides recommendations for blush, lipstick, eye shadow, mascara and eyeliner colors for three distinctive looks, casual polished and evening.
