Bold Teal Liner using Laura Geller Makeup

Today's look using Laura Geller products is a little more daring than yesterday. Today is a bit more edgy using a bold teal liner, and really keeping the rest of the face soft to make the liner the focus.

I started today with my same routine as yesterday- Bare Minerals Stroke of Light, then Balance n Brighten as foundation and baked vanilla highlighter.

My blush today is the Baked Monochromatic blush is Bora Bora

With blush

Laura Geller Chocolate Mousse shadow- This is a universally flattering shade of brown that has a cult following in LG land.

Chocolate Mousse on lid and blended up into crease.

Now the fun part! Laura Geller I-Care waterproof liners in Bone and Ocean. These are the best liners on the market for sensitive eyes! They are non irritating and long lasting!!
 
 
I applied Bone on my lower waterline and inner corner. I then tightlined with Ocean on the upper lashline as well as winging it out a bit for some drama. This is easy to do with the rubber tip of the liner pencil. Notice how this teal intensifies my natural eye color!!!

Really work this liner into the lashes as to not have any space between the liner and the lashes.

Finished Eyes!

Tropics lip set. Unfortunately I could not find this lipstick in Tropics for sale anywhere. The City Lights lip gloss is still available. I love this packaging! This lipstick is said to be the one shade that goes with anything. Perfect for this look!

Finished face!!

Before (from yesterday)
After
 
I would like to draw attention to how smooth and airbrushed this foundation makes my face look. I have huge pores and it really blurs them.

Curious how this makeup wears throughout the day? I thought you might be!

Here is me 8 hours+ later:

My shadow has faded but my liner has not budged.

No flakes, smudges or smears. My face is shiny compared to the matte look I had this morning. My blush has faded, but all blushes do on me. Of course the lipstick wore off by lunch time. I never re-apply my makeup through the day. As far as the foundation- My flaws are still covered! I don't even mind the shine as it looks natural to me. I could simply apply some mattifying powder if going out and still look as fresh as this morning.
