Gear up for a splash of color for Spring 2010.

That's the advice celeb makeup artist to the stars and Avon's Global Creative Color Director Jillian Dempsey has for beauty junkies looking for their next fix.

But don't worry, it's not an impossible dream you'll only see on the runway.

The mom of three, who is married to hottie Patrick Dempsey but won't kiss and tell about him (we asked!), is designing products for Avon that blend current fashion trends with easy application for ladies on the go just like herself.

"My philosophy has always been that makeup should be quick, easy and beautiful. I find inspiration in my everyday life; I'm a mom, a wife, a makeup artist and I need products that are multifunctional, easy-to-use and provide real, long lasting benefits," Dempsey tells StyleList.

A fan of products that do double duty -- like makeup that also provides skincare benefits -- Dempsey is most excited about a chubby pencil she designed for Avon called the Multi Pencil.

"It's a three-in-one, versatile pencil with creamy, blendable color for eyes, lips and cheeks. Each double ended pencil has a highlighting eyeshadow color on one end and a creamy lip and cheek color on the other, which is perfect for multi-taskers like myself," says Dempsey.

And the most modern way to head into Spring is to balance the color on your face with a pop of vibrance on the lips and neutral eyes.

"A dramatic lip with light eyes is going to be a big trend for spring. Look for high-definition color with vibrant lipsticks and lip glosses," advises Dempsey.
