Cranberry/Gold Metallic eye- Laura Geller Makeup Week

I promised Today's look would be more challenging than yesterday. Today I am applying some of Laura's baked shadows wet! This is more makeup than I have used the past two days and the look is definitely more dramatic.



Naked Face- Agghhh 

With Balance n Brighten. Excuse the liner residue from yesterday. The camera picked up what I didn't really see in person.

Baked Eye Duo- Rome and Milan

Add water to the gold side and apply with a flat brush. Water turns it into a cream, but work fast before it turns back to powder.

Apply on the lid up to the crease.

And around tear duct and lower lashline.

Using the same brush, wet the berry side.

Apply on the outer corners like bat wings.

Blend out the berry color with a fluffy brush.

I applied a little Chocolate Mousse from yesterday above the crease to make a smoother transition to highlighter.

Baked Vanilla Highlighter with Sponge tip.

Heavy handed demo to show where I apply.

Blend out.

I-care liners in Purple Paradise and Pennywise.

Apply Pennywise to lower waterline.

Apply Purple Paradise to upper waterline and outer third of top lashline. I slightly winged out.

I find that bolder eye looks can make dark circles and puffiness more prominent under the eyes, so a fuller coverage concealer is often necessary. Today I used Laura's Real Deal concealer.

You need a tiny amount.

I dabbed it on with my finger.

Then blended out with a fluffy concealer brush.

With mascara and brows done.

Finished eyes.




I wanted to keep the rest of the face neutral. I chose Laura's Tartufo baked blush to warm up my cheeks without competing with my eyes.

With blush.

I wanted a soft neutral lip. I chose Laura's Italian Marble lipstick in Sugared Maple.

Finished Face!



This look is a more glamorous look than my previous ones. I really want to show the versatility of the products.

If you have green eyes like me- watch out! These eye colors will pop them out of your head!!!

These colors are definitely wearable for almost anyone. People who are scared of red toned shadows on their eyes might be afraid, but using them in the right place and away from the lashline will make them work better for you.

Until tomorrow, have fun playing in your Laura Geller Makeup!!!
