Through a chance encounter during a recent visit to the UK, I had the great opportunity of meeting Sarah Jagger—a fellow make-up artist who has seen it all. She has worked with some of the biggest names in the fashion world, creating looks for designers like Vivienne Westwood and magazine titles like Elle, Grazia, Vogue and Glamour. And what a stroke of luck that Sarah is a make-up artist who uses my products, including our iconic Spackle® in all of her shoots! After chatting one day over coffee, I realized my dream of having a local UK back-up guest was sitting across from me—can you believe it?!
My UK GGs are in for a treat with Sarah Jagger on QVC UK (wink, wink). What she loves about Laura Geller Beauty is not only the quality and performance of these products, but the joyful, judgment-free spirit behind this brand. Just like me, she loves to help women become their most beautiful self – and to make them smile when they look in the mirror.
Keep an eye for her on QVC UK later this year during Laura Geller Make-Up Shows.

Summer is here in all its glory, and nothing reflects the healthy-skin trend of the season like a natural looking flush on the cheeks! To capture that lit-from-within glow, I’ve created an array of Baked blushes in universally flattering colors. Because these silky domes of powder begin as liquid pigments that are then baked for 24 hours on terracotta tiles, they don’t require additional fillers—and that means the color is not only more pure, but also weightless in feel—perfect for summer months when you don’t want your make-up weighing you down.
My tried and true Blush-n-Brighten Baked Cheek Color is an award-winning customer favorite. Rich tones of marbleized pigments are swirled together in a soft, silky, powder for a glow-giving blush with universal appeal. Each of my blushes blends multiple pigments for just the right shade of color for all skin types. For a matte finish, opt for Sugar Free Blush-n-Brighten.
For mix-and-match options on the go, you will love the Baby Cakes Baked Blush Palette with Retractable Brush, which offers 4 shades in a variety of hues and finishes.
Ethereal Rose Baked Radiant Face Powder creates a subtle allover glow you can wear every day. The marbleized tones of pink and pearl cast a flattering glow on your complexion. Now you can easily get that beautiful summer radiance with this make-up bag must-have.
Baked Monochromatic Blushes offer the most gorgeous, universally-flattering cheek colors ever! The velvety-smooth powder has a sateen formula that is paraben-free and contains the antioxidant protection of Centella Asiatica and White Tea Extracts. These blushes are mono shades, available in flattering pops of color).
Ombré Baked Blush Gradient Cheek Color with Double-Ended Blush & Highlighter Applicator is an ingenious palette that lets you sculpt a perfect flush. Choose any of the five stripes for an easy glow, or mix and match shades for a custom blended blush. You can also use this palette as eyeshadow!
Baked Cheek Dreams Blush and Highlighter Trio includes two great blushes plus a stripe of Baked Highlighter in French Vanilla in a single, take-everywhere compact that fits right in the palm of your hand! The options with this compact are endless!

With the hot and humid weather upon us, I want to share some great suggestions for long-lasting eyeliner. There are so many gorgeous options that are perfect for the summer months!
My eyeliner staple for any season is I-Care Waterproof Eyeliner. With a built in sharpener and blending tip, this is a great all-in-one option. Soft, smooth, and super long-wearing, this water-resistant formula virtually floats into place. This unique liner is called I-Care because its treatment-like formula contains beneficial and nourishing ingredients perfect for the delicate eye area. The highly smudge-proof formula helps to perfectly line the inner eyelid. Unlike most eye pencils, I-Care Eyeliner has a retractable point. Easily take your summer look from day to night with shades like Rose Gold, Lapis and Purple Sapphire.
If you’re looking for versatility, try Eye Rimz Baked Wet/Dry Eye Accents, which offers everything you need to complete your eye look—shadow and liner. Best of all, it sets into place for transfer-proof longevity. Eye Rimz is a buildable and versatile shadow/liner that creates endless incredible looks. The swirl of rich colors creates multi-dimensional results for a stare that smolders.
Some of my other Baked eyeliners include Baked Cake Eyeliner Duo and Baked Marble Eyeshadow and Baked Cake Eyeliner Duo—both can be used wet or dry for versatile looks.
Shadow Rimz Baked Marble Eyeshadow Eye Rimz Duo and Baked Sateen Eyeshadow and Eye Rimz offer the same versatility, with a variety of finishes, from solid to shimmery.
For easy-to-apply precision liner, look no further than Inkwell Waterproof Gel Liner. This is one of the best, silkiest and most long-wearing gel-based liners you’ll ever get your hands on! A special gel formula gives the no-budge, transfer-resistant liner its luxurious feel and crease-free finish. Unlike other gel liners that tend to dry out, Inkwell stays soft, moist and emollient, thanks to a well of skin-loving ingredients: Vitamin E, Wheat Germ Oil and Jojoba Oil. You’ll love how easy it is to apply. And, once it sets, you’ll forget it’s even there.
You can also create a precise line of color with The Perfect Pairing Waterproof Liquid & Powder Eyeliner, which is a two-part system, with a super-shiny, intensely dark, waterproof liquid liner on one end to set off your eyes and make the color pop.
For gel precision in a pencil form, use INKcredible Gel Eyeliner Pencils. These unique pencils are waterproof! Glide-on color stays put from day to night, delivering powerful, vibrant, multi-dimensional color.
Last but not least, I want to share with you one of my favorite classics—Powder Pencil Eyeliners! These vibrant, wearable shades feature a cream-to-powder formula. What does that mean? It means application is a breeze with a creamy pencil that never tugs or pulls. Let it dry a few seconds, and you’ll see it sets to a powder. That means no running or smudging.
You can shop all of my eyeliners 24/7 right here on my website!

Parties, picnics…and, let’s be honest: perspiration.
While you’re busy filling up your calendars with fun summertime to-dos, don’t forget to jot down “keep make-up fresh and shine-free!” I know many women like me who want to be beautiful in the summer, but just can’t find the right melt-proof make-up. Enter the brand new Skin Diffuser Baked Loose Powder!
This state-of-the-art Baked loose powder can be used as a light foundation or a finishing powder to help control oil and lightly mattify skin throughout the day, thanks to oil-absorbing Silica. Now you can party pretty, shine-free. Not only does this multi-tasking (dare I say) miracle absorb unwanted oil, it has optical blurring refiners that provide the ultimate in flawless coverage.
The light-as-air powder diminishes the appearance of imperfections and gives skin a soft-focus effect. No more un-tagging photos on Facebook, gals. Now you’ll always be photo ready! And since we all want to pamper and protect our skin, we’ve powered up Skin Diffuser Baked Loose Powder with antioxidants Centella Asiatica and White Tea Extracts to protect your skin from environmental damage.
Skin Diffuser Baked Loose Powder starts life just like my other Baked products – as liquid pigments that are Baked for 24 hours. It is then jet-milled to create this beautiful, feather-light loose powder. As a result, it is lightweight enough that you can use it as your finishing powder, but it’s also buildable, so you can use it as a light foundation, perfect for summer.
Here are some really simple tips for use:
Twist clear sifter guard to the left to release powder. Rather than shaking the compact up and down to have the product come out, gently shake it to the left and right. This will easily and cleanly dispense product. Using Stippling Brush or Puff, apply Skin Diffuser Baked Loose Powder on entire face for a softly diffused look. Twist guard to the right to close. Replace puff.
For lighter coverage or to set make-up, use Stippling Brush to sweep powder over skin, paying attention to oil-prone areas. For fuller coverage, use Puff and gently press on the skin to ensure perfect application.
As you know, I always like to include a mirror with all of my products – but I must admit it’s a little messy with a loose powder. But here’s my trick gals, I take my Stippling Brush to grab the extra powder on the mirror! That way I am achieving a perfect finish and keeping my mirror clean at the same time.
I know you will love this product as much as I do. Shop this product now on QVC.com.
