Raise your glass and say “saluté!” Infused with powerful age-fighting superstars like Resveratrol, Grapeseed Oil and a serving of good-for-skin ingredients, Beauty Off The Vine celebrates all the things you love about red wine. This hand-picked beauty collection also includes my next-generation Baked products, in juicy, fresh-off-the-vine shades that let you create an ever-youthful look instantaneously, plus a lovely wine-glass charm to top off this get-gorgeous “bottle”! Enjoy!
This kit introduces you to the best of the original Baked Collection: Balance-n-Brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation and Baked Highlighter, and my new Baked ImPRESSions. My love of rich strong Italian coffee inspired me to infuse each of the blush and eyeshadow shades with good-for-you qualities of Arabica Extract and Caffeine for maximum, full-bodied color. The warm, flattering-for-all shades of Mocha Mauve Latté and Espresso Yourself each bear a coffee bean design. To complete this collection is my Color Drenched Lip Gloss in Café Au Lait—a lightly coffee-scented lip gloss that combines rich color with out-of-this-world shine. Brew up your best look ever! It’s all here, in Fresh Brewed Beauty.
Inspired by the amazing architecture, breathtaking scenery and overall allure of one of my favorite places in the world, my Lip Pops trio captures the thrill of a romantic Italian getaway. Palazzo Petal, Milano Mauve and Venetian Vino give you brilliant shine, a gorgeous wash of color and creamy texture. Plus, you get the stay-put qualities of a lip stain, thanks to a non-sticky, waterproof formula that also packs in Cottonseed Oil and Vitamin E, for the softest, most satiny results. I’ve also added the subtle aroma of strawberries for a sweet cap to this vacation-inspired collection.
If there’s one thing that can complete your look, it’s lipstick. On hectic days, you can forget about the rest of your makeup, but not lip color. And, what better way to cover your pretty-pout checklist during this busy, party-filled holiday season than my new collection of gorgeous Italian Marble Lipsticks! This swirl of light and dark pigments creates a vibrant depth of color on the lips, while its unique formulation provides deeply smoothing and softening benefits, thanks to moisturizing emollient oils.
Get swept away by the gorgeous sun-warmed colors in this collection! Never miss a beat when it comes to perfectly pairing your cheek and lip colors with this summer-inspired duo. Complementary shades of Ethereal Blush in Sateen Subtle Sunswept and Dream Creams Lip Palette in Sunswept give you that glowing, just-back-from-vacation look.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the amazing women out there. Enjoy your day!

Knowing how to use your make-up brushes properly is very important. Here are a few easy tips for some of my favorite brushes and applicators.
the perfect complexion powder brush
Designed specifically for my Baked complexion products, the Retractable Kabuki Brush picks up just the right amount of powder with its synthetic fibers. Each bristle has a gentle wave that allows it to readily pick up powder. The synthetic fibers cleanly deposit the product on your skin for a flawless finish. Perfect for all over face powders and blush. The synthetic taklon hair helps keep your brush clean by not absorbing make-up or oils from your face.
To use: dip the brush into your powder and lightly tap it to remove excess. Dust powder all over your face.
the perfect multi-tasking brush for all-over face powders and/or blush
Just like the Retractable Kabuki Brush, this brush is designed to pick up just the right amount of powder. Use it to apply any of my Baked face or cheek products.
To use: dip the brush into face powder or blush and apply where desired. For more concentrated coverage, retract the brush halfway, so bristles are stacked closer together.
the skin-perfecting paddle
The first time I ever went on air on QVC, this ingenious product took the make-up world by storm, thanks to its skin-perfecting, airbrush-like qualities. Made of real wool, this soft blending paddle caresses your face, absorbs excess product and smoothes make-up in place.
To use: after applying your foundation, concealer and blush, use the paddle to blend and buff your face for a flawless finish. You can also use it as a powder and blush applicator.
the brush to brighten your face
Don’t underestimate this brush! It’s perfect for use with any of the Baked Highlighters. Double-ended applicators make it great for both face and eye application.
To use: with the smaller end of the applicator, apply the highlighter on the bone just under your eyebrow, or use the larger end to apply directly above the cheekbone.

What better way to welcome in warm weather than with a fresh, floral-inspired look!
Spring Into Baked (available on QVC.com) includes a Baked foundation and bronzer that smoothes and color-corrects, a dreamy blush that creates the healthiest looking flush and an eyeliner-eyeshadow pairing inspired by the happy
hues of my favorite season.
All of my Baked products are carefully crafted in Italy and have one other thing in common: smooth, luxurious texture with unbelievable color payoff. Swirls of liquid pigment are poured onto terracotta tiles, slowly baked for 24 hours and hand-finished into silky domes of powder by Italian artisans. The result is a unique and velvety formula that looks amazing on every skin type.
Create the look
BALANCE-N-BRIGHTEN Baked Color Correcting Foundation
Featuring swirls of creamy neutrals, my skin-perfecting foundation combines the creaminess of a liquid with the silky feel of a powder. Mineral oil-free and paraben-free formula contains antioxidants Centella Asiatica and White Tea Extracts.
TO USE: Using the Powder Brush, apply Balance-n-Brighten all over the face, targeting sides of the nose, blemishes and redness.
BRONZE-N-BRIGHTEN Baked Color Correcting Bronzer
Natural-looking bronzer creates gorgeous, sun-kissed radiance, with a dewy finish. Mineral oil-free, paraben-free, with antioxidants Centella Asiatica and White Tea Extracts.
TO USE: After Balance-n-Brighten, apply Bronze-n-Brighten where the sun naturally hits: your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin—or all over the face for a smooth, sun-tanned look.
BLUSH-N-BRIGHTEN Baked Cheek Color in Dreamsicle
The perfect candy pink hue swirled with banana and luminous fuschia that leaves cheeks with a soft, satin glow. Paraben-free formula contains antioxidants Centella Asiatica and White Tea Extracts.
TO USE: Apply blush on the apples of your cheeks, blending up towards the hairline for a healthy, rosy flush.
BAKED EYESHADOW DUO in Shimmering Sand/Emerald Waters
Two flattering shades for eyes to perk up your look!
1. With the eyeshadow end of the Double-Ended Shadow & Liner Brush, apply Shimmering Sand from lashline up to the crease.
2. Use Emerald Waters to contour along the eyelid—blending toward the outer corner.
3. For richer color and a more dramatic finish, dampen your brush and use these buildable eyeshadows wet.
TIP: Wash your brushes regularly using mild shampoo or gentle soap. Rinse until water runs clear, return the brushes to their original shape and dry on a towel before storing.
I-CARE WATERPROOF EYELINER in Charcoal
The instant you try my I-Care Eyeliner you’ll discover something extraordinary: Its waterproof formula virtually floats into place and lets you create expertly lined lids that last!
TO USE: For a fine line, sharpen the tip and draw a line as close to your upper and/or lower lashes as possible.

You already know I am all about beauty ingenuity, so it was a no brainer for the Laura Geller Beauty team to develop our brand new BB Cream All-In-One Skin Perfecting Beauty Balm SPF 21 (available at ULTA stores and on ULTA.com).

Condition and protect your pretty skin with antioxidants Ginseng Root and Ginkgo Biloba Extracts, Vitamins A and E, plus a Multi-Mineral Complex rich in Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc. This formula is also mineral oil-free, non-comedogenic and dermatologist-tested.
Simply apply your BB Cream over your favorite Spackle® Under Make-Up Primer with a foundation brush or your fingertips until perfectly blended. You can’t do this wrong, gals!
P.S. By the way, our BB Cream All-In-One Skin Perfecting Beauty Balm SPF 21 is made in the USA!
