Hi from my green room at QVC!
Many of you have participated in my “Celebrate a Milestone Looking Beautiful” contest and I must say, the beauty tips that you have shared were wonderful. It was amazing to see how many of you had tips that were passed down from generation to generation. It was incredibly hard to choose the top three (since you are all winners in my book), and I spent the entire weekend reading them over and over again. The 3 tips that touched my heart the most were:
"Apply a white liner to your waterline. It really makes your eyes pop and brightens the whites of your eyes."
"I like to keep my Primer (Spackle) in the fridge: it's a nice cool treat. Plus, it minimizes
your pores! Try!!"
"Take the tip of your mascara wand and use that on the outer corner of your lashes after an initial coat. It really makes those lashes longer and opens up your eyes."
On a separate note, I always love to meet new Geller Girls at my New York Studio, and am excited to report that we have two upcoming events in early June.
On June 8th, I will be holding a “Meet the Masters” event starting at 5pm. Come meet me, along with Dermatologist Extraordinaire, Dr. Doris Day and Author of the new book “The Best of Everything After 50,” Barbara Hannah Grufferman. We’ll sip on some delicious cocktails and speak about all things beauty! We will also hold a fun raffle where one lucky winner will receive a gift valued at more than $1,300. For those who want to attend, please RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our Facebook page!
On June 10th, my international makeup artist, Johnny Ottavino and I will host a night of cocktails and questions. We would love to meet you and give you the answers that you need to go from “how to wow!” Please RSVP at email@example.com!
I have one more show tonight on QVC at 8PM EST but the fun doesn’t stop there! Click here for a list of all of my remaining show times!
Love you all!

I would like to start off by saying a big THANK YOU to all of my Geller girls who watched me on the Q yesterday. It was a busy but fun-filled day as Johnny and I showed you some of my “favorites.” I hope you all enjoyed the new kit!
In light of our ULTA launch, the first 5 fans who post a photograph of themselves standing in front of one of the new ULTA counters on my Facebook Fan Page wall, will be treated to a complimentary Baby Cakes Blush Palette! Be sure to include why you made the trip to ULTA and what you picked up while you were there!
Looking forward to seeing all of your photos!

I have just returned from the WWD Beauty CEO Summit in Palm Beach, Florida, and as you can see from the picture above, the weather was simply gorgeous. This made me think about all of you, and what a shame it is that some of us have to go all the way to another state or country to receive that beautiful sun-kissed glow. Well, not anymore, Geller girls! I have found a way for each and every one of you to have your own sun-kissed glow!
Start with my Spackle Tinted Under Makeup Primer in Bronze. It has the same benefits as my revolutionary Spackle, but now adds shimmer with a sheer bronze tint! And don’t worry if you’re fair – this works on everyone!
Then apply my Barely There Tinted Moisturizer. Not only is this tinted to help achieve that sun-kissed glow, but it also contains a SPF of 20 and we all know that during these warm months, one will need much protection against UVA/UVB rays. It is lightweight but will still give you coverage! You can wear this alone or with my Bronze-N-Brighten.
Follow with my Baked Body Frosting. Why? Because it adds a sexy little shimmer to your arms, legs, shoulders, back, décolleté, and even to the nape of your neck.
Now you are ready to go with a glow that makes it look like you just arrived from the Caribbean! Enjoy gals!

As many of you know, Mother’s Day was this past Sunday. I must say, I feel so very fortunate to still have my mother in my life, and to also be a mother myself. As I write this, I remember a moment I had with Daniel last week while taking him to school. He asked me, “Mom, did you always know you wanted a child?” I told him, “Yes,” to which he replied, “At what age did you know?” I answered, “I knew I wanted to have a child since I was 12 years old.” His questions didn’t stop there, but it was at that moment that I realized how lucky I am to have Daniel in my life. For the last 10 years, my life seems to have more of a purpose. Having Daniel was the best gift I could have ever given myself. The unconditional love one receives from her child is irreplaceable, just as the unconditional love we receive from our mothers.
Every day, I make sure to talk with my Mom. Our conversations are priceless, and ever since the loss of my Father, I know to never take our talks and time together for granted. My Mother is the only person who still cares about everything that is happening in my life, even if it is as simple as going shopping. I can remember being 15-years-old, and having my Mom sit at the edge of my bed as we both listened to each other’s stories. It is a tradition that I have still kept alive with Daniel as I put him to bed (and also because that seems to be the time when he is the most talkative).
I also wanted to take the time out to thank everyone who took part in my Beautiful Like Mom contest on Facebook. Your stories were extremely touching and I will forever keep them in my heart. Picking the top three entries was extremely difficult, so I wanted to make sure I let you all know that each and every one of you is a winner!
Sending much love to all of the moms out there.
Many of you braved the heat and humidity this past Saturday to stop by the NYC Studio for Mini-Makeovers, champagne and snacks - and what a blast we all had! I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed spending time with all of you, hearing your stores and getting to know you. We had some Makeover event veterans, first-timers and even very dedicated husbands and fathers who wanted to see what all of the buzz was about! Check out the video below for some fun footage from the day. I am so looking forward to the next event!
