-Apply our Eye Rimz in Blue Voodoo to your lids for a skeleton stare that smolders.
-Create "eye sockets" by drawing in large black circular shapes around the eyes that you will fill in with I-Care Eyeliner in Black.
-With your I-Care, draw lines on the outer corners of the mouth that mark the hinges of the jaw, and thin lines on the mouth to create the spaces between the ‘teeth’.
-Brush on some of our GlamLASH Dramatic Volumizing Mascara.
-For a standout skeleton look, finish with our Color Enriched Anti-Aging Lipstick in Cab Crush, a creamy plum color.
-With our Baked Marble Eyeshadow in Pink Icing/Devils Food, sweep the lightest shade across your lids blending up to your crease. Apply the dark shade to your outer lashline and outer crease and blend well for a sophisticated eye look.

-Still using the Inkwell, create the pronounced tear ducts by drawing a vertical quarter-inch line from your inner top lash lines past your natural tearducts.
-Then, fully line your top lash lines extending the line out past the outer corners of your eyes creating a fierce cat-eye look.
-Apply our GlamLASH Dramatic Volumizing Mascara for long, gorgeous, feline lashes.
-Finish with our Color Brilliance Lustrous Lipstick in our vibrant rose shade, Flirt.

I am SO excited for my upcoming seven hours of QVC U.S. event shows coming up June 27, 28, and 29—and I’m celebrating my make-up merriment by sharing my seven favorite new beauty must-haves for my Geller Girls!
Retro glam has never looked so good. Inspired by the fabulous fashions of 1950s Italy, Ciao Bella creates sexy, dramatic eyes and soft, kissable lips. The best-selling bronzer creates a perfectly sun-kissed hue--like you just returned from the Riviera! The eye shadow duo highlights and contours for eyes that stand out. Amp up the drama with a sweep of waterproof eyeliner--subtle, smoky, or a you-can-do cat eye. Lips get a whisper of sheer, protective color with SPF 15 lip balm.
The ultimate full-face collection of top-selling products and shades from Laura Geller Beauty! Spackle® Under Make-Up Primer preps skin to a perfect canvas and allows makeup to apply more smoothly and wear longer. Spackle® and Baked Brûlée Blush are infused with Centella Asiatica and white tea extracts. Baked products begin as liquid pigments and are then baked and hand finished by Italian artisans. Italian Marble Lipstick delivers balm-like texture.
Treat skin to the best of both worlds with this makeup/skin care hybrid formula. The mousse-like liquid foundation hydrates skin while providing natural-looking, sheer-to-medium coverage and SPF 25 UVA/UVB protection. Skin is nourished with mineral water, vitamin E, goji berry, and an antioxidant complex. With a veil-like texture and velvet matte finish to blur the look of fine lines and wrinkles, Skin Elements leaves skin radiant, even, and healthy-looking--the elements of sun-protected beauty! Available in 6 shades!
A moisturizing lip stain in a range of beautiful shades that flatter any complexion. The Lasting Love Lip Stain is a gel-like crayon that glides on lips to impart lustrous, matte, buildable color. Laura Geller Beauty has reinvented the rules of lip stains by combining deep moisture and long-lasting wear--for the perfect pout that lasts.
It's your secret weapon for flawless skin! Whether you want an easy-to-use, oil-absorbing finishing powder or a natural, no-makeup look, this one-shade-fits-all powder delivers undetectable color correction. Mint green pigments minimize the look of redness, flecks of lavender brighten sallow tones, and soft peach hues illuminate, helping your skin look instantly healthier and more even.
A modern and indispensable colored lip balm that protects with broad-spectrum SPF 15 coverage. A mix of vitamin E, mango butter, and coconut oil help to nourish lips, while a hint of semi-gloss color creates a natural, sporty look. Combined with SPF 15 broad-spectrum protection, each Sun Kissed Lip Balm is the perfect recipe for a beautiful look.
The ultimate eyelid primer to create the perfect canvas for color lay-down that won't budge for up to 16 hours of wear.

With spring here and summer fast approaching, festivals are becoming more and more popular!
Festivals are all about good times with friends and making amazing memories! We love the make-up, fashion and accessories, also! Self-expression and creativity is half the fun of going to a festival!
Here are our four festival beauty essentials.
1. Photo Ready Face
Create a flawless, photo ready face and protect your beautiful skin with SPF (after all, you’re going to be outside for a while!)
Our all-in-one beauty balm multitasks to the max! Creamy yet lightweight formula combines six skin-perfecting products in one tube: moisturizer, broad spectrum SPF, water-resistant foundation, anti-aging complex, antioxidant protection and complexion brightener. Contains antioxidants Ginseng Root and Ginkgo Biloba Extracts, Vitamins A and E, plus a Multi-Mineral Complex rich in Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc—all of which condition and protect skin from environmental damage. Optical brighteners instantly diffuse light and diminish the appearance of fine lines and blemishes, while Licorice Root brightens and helps even-out skin tone over time. Mineral oil-free, non-comedogenic and dermatologist-tested.

4. Faux Glow:
Create a sun-kissed glow that all festival-goers seem to have!
Baked Body Frosting is for whenever you want to show a little skin, and your skin deserves to be polished to perfection. A moisturizing, silky smooth powder that adds the warmth of bronze, or pearly luminosity, to the body. Thanks to the buildable coverage, and wet-or-dry application, Baked Body Frosting can smooth on a subtle hint of luminosity, or build up in layers to a satin-sleek radiance. When applied wet, it will give your skin a diamond-like sheen.
