My Review: Baked Marble Eyeshadow

laura_geller_baked.jpg

I recently tried this eyeshadow, and I totally love it!  The marble of colors is so beautiful – it is unlike any ordinary eyeshadow.  There is such depth in the color, it is gorgeous!

Baked Marble Eyeshadow by Laura Geller is baked powders for the eyes that feature multiple infusions of color.

The shadow can be used by swiping the brush all over the entire compact and stroking over the eyelid. Or, you can identify different shades and tones within the palette and apply them individually, use darker tones in the crease and at outer corners, brighter ones to highlight.

All of these gorgeous combinations are designed to use wet or dry, and the deeper tones work beautifully as an eyeliner.

Barely There Makeup!

GET THE LOOK: “I wanted the makeup to reflect Leighton’s beautiful and effortless dress,” says makeup artist Christopher Colbeck, who created this neutral-toned look on Leighton Meester. “We decided to keep the colors very soft and subtle with notes of cooler tones.”

INSIDER TRICK: Colbeck kept to the following neutral palette of products: Lancome tinted moisturizer, Chanel bronzing powder, golden sand Dior eyeshadow and icy beige M.A.C lipstick. He finished the look “with a light dusting of pearly white shimmer powder on the cheeks, eyelids, shoulders and legs to complement the cooler tones of the look.”

I love that Dior palette! Okay, I love any Dior palette.  I wish I had money, I’d buy this right now!

Blue eye makeup is IN and not in a Marcia Brady way. Check out the latest blue beauties along with expert techniques on how to apply BOLD BLUE color in a feminine, fashionable way…

“Blue can be gorgeous or a little 70′s prom, so it must be dealt with cautiously,” remarks Too Faced Founder and Creator, Jerrod Blandino. “Brown eyes tend to look better in brighter hues like teal, peacock, or turquoise. Green eyes look great in a plumy or lavender based blue, (think iris or periwinkle), and naturally Blue eyes look best in navy or smoky cobalt.”

Those who read this site, know that I love me some palettes.  My makeup box is filled with mostly palettes, I probably have at least 10.  This one will have to join my collection.  I love the colors, I think they’re so beautiful!  I’ve not quite perfected how to wear blue or green eyeshadow…so I may have to do a little researching.  Have you worn blue or green before?  How do you wear it?

The Precious Pearl Palette ($130 Value) is an opulent shadow palette featuring six iridescent eyeshadow shades—all infused with genuine crushed pearl.

Stila The Precious Pearl Palette features six new silky smooth eyeshadow shades that are infused with genuine crushed pearl. A natural wonder, pearl minimizes the appearance of fine lines and leaves skin with a youthful, radiant glow. It also contains minerals and proteins which nourish the skin leaving it smooth and soft. These six must-have eyeshadow shades, that can be worn alone or together, create an endless number of brilliant looks. They are tucked inside a vintage-inspired compact with real mother-of-pearl detail.

This set contains:
- White Gold (soft creamy white with gold shimmer)
