We recently caught up with Celebrity make-up artist Laura Geller to get some tips for looking our best this summer.
RadarOnline.com: What are three cosmetics a woman needs in her purse at all times?
LG: Lipstick, a freshening anti-shine powder and concealer. When looking to pack for the day, you might want to consider a lip palette for broader options. We might start off wanting to wear a nude or natural lip color, but entering into another environment, we might like to change it up to a brighter pink or red to make a different statement.
RadarOnline.com: How can we get a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow without spending hours in the damaging sun?
LG: Body and face bronzers that are available are my preference over self tanners. Laura Geller Studio has a few great options including Baked Body Frosting Moisturizing Powder (QVC Item #A79751). This could be applied dry for a slight bronzed hue, or applied wet, it transforms into a much more golden color to the body and creates a satiny look. I wanted it to be portable so it can provide instant results wherever you are, so it’s not a liquid, it’s easy to apply, it won’t appear orange and it doesn’t streak. Also, brand new and currently exclusive to QVC is my Soft Touch Air Whipped Bronzer (QVC Item #A202071). This is the quickest way to transform milky white skin naturally, as it warms with the heat of your body. It also has no shimmer or sparkle, so it provides more of a matte finish to the bronzed look.
RadarOnline.com: What are some of the make-up trends we’ll see this summer for both daytime and evening looks?
LG: You’re going to see a lot of peach and coral colors and bronzing is back stronger than ever. There was a time when milky white skin was in, but this year, bronze is really strong so you’re going to see colors that exemplify the summer look – peach, coral, bronze. LASHES are being played up as well, but in a very soft and natural way. The look is not the heavily made-up look, it’s the easy, natural summer beauty look.
