One look, Two lips- Laura Geller Makeup Week

Today I wanted to use my favorite eye duo from Laura- Vanilla Toffee/ Black Cherry. I think I may have bought a back-up of this duo because I love it so much. This is the look I came up with.

Before

I used Laura's Take Cover liquid foundation in Medium today to change things up a little. This gives similar coverage to the BnB, but has a more satin/natural finish on the skin. I love the mousse texture of the foundation, but find the shade to be a little orange in some lighting.

Got my brows on.

I-care liner in Java.

I lined all around the eye, not too neatly because I am smudging it out.

My beloved Vanilla Toffee/Black Cherry and I also used the middle shade from the Espresso Yourself trio to contour the eye.

Apply Vanilla Toffee to lid dry.

Apply Black Cherry with a flat liner brush by pushing it into the lashline dry. I then took an angled shadow brush and worked some into the outer V as well and blended it inward.

Also, I highlighted the brow bone with Baked Vanilla highlighter.

I then applied my Stroke of Light by BM to highlight my face.

I then set my makeup with my Chanel loose powder and a large fluffy brush.

I am testing out It Cosmetics blush stain in Peony today.

Baked Portofino highlighter.

I wanted a glow to go with the liquid foundation, so I chose Portofino to highlight with.

I have to have my mascara. It brings any so so eye look together and makes it fabulous! You never know if anything looks good until the mascara is on.

I have two lip option here for you. The first is OCC Lip Tar Stained Glass in Rhythm Box.
 

This is a more evening, special occasion look with the Rhythm Box.
 
 
Laura's Italian Marble lipstick in Berry Vanilla was the perfect pinky nude for daytime. 

Finished Look.



  


 
 
This is definitely a look that can be worn by nearly anyone. You could go more bold and apply the shadow wet, putting black liner on the waterline, wearing some lashes. The options are endless.
 
 
I will probably not be able to post tomorrow because my boys are flying in and I am going to pick them up. I promise to have something even better this weekend. How does a Laura Geller swatchfest/collection post sound?
