Want radiant, glowing skin with a flawless finish and subtle flush of colour in your cheeks? The Laura Geller Today’s Special Value collection launching on Sunday 9th February is the answer. From primer and foundation, to lip colour and blush the collection has everything you need to spring clean your make-up.
We asked make-up artist Sarah Jagger to cast her professional eye over the collection and give us her verdict. Sarah has worked with top designers and celebrities, creating flawless looks from the runway to the red carpet. Here she gives us the insider info on how this TSV make-up collection can make our dull winter skin glow again!
Sarah: We’re all looking forward to seeing Laura over this side of the pond again for what is set to be an incredible Today’s Special Value!
Long before Laura Geller and I became friends, a make-up artist colleague of mine introduced me to Laura Geller Cosmetics. Like most women who try Laura’s unique baked make-up formula, I was amazed by how creamy, fresh and youthful skin appeared after application. I noticed with my clients that it didn’t matter whether I was working on a young model, a male sports star or a more mature actress the results were always flawless looking skin.
Not only are the results dramatic, application only takes a few seconds. As a make-up artist (and a time-poor Mum) I know how valuable time is. When I realised Laura’s products made me work faster and achieve flawless results I immediately added the products to my professional make-up kit.
There are always new products to try too. Recently I was lucky enough to try the Today’s Special Value collection; a five-piece collection that includes primer, foundation, lip, cheek and eye, colour and brushes. I now use these products everyday…
1. Spackle Primer in Ethereal
Winter can play havoc on our skin, dulling the complexion and making it less radiant. The Today’s Special Value collection includes one of my favourite products for this time of year – Spackle Primer in Ethereal: an under make-up primer to revive and re-texturize the skin for a flawlessly smooth finish while extending the wear of your make-up! Packed full of skin loving antioxidants and Aloe Vera, this primer has a subtle pink hue to put the luminosity back in the complexion.
2. Balance n Brighten Foundation
At the heart of the collection is Laura’s iconic Balance n Brighten Foundation in your choice of shade. I’ve always been such a fan of Balance n Brighten because it truly is the only foundation I’ve ever found that doesn’t need to be colour matched exactly. It really is as simple as selecting between four shades and this clever baked formula will intuitively adjust to match your complexion.
3. Apple Custard cheek colour
Everyone is going to love the Baked Brûlée in Apple Custard – a cheek colour with swirls of long-wearing baked pigments in warm bronze, nude and medium. Not to mention the Baked Eye Stripes in Plum Torte (three stripes of eye shadow: ballet pink, medium taupe and deep purple), which are the ideal neutral hues for day-to-night looks and special occasions.
4. Cherry Almond Luscious Lips lipstick
I’m so often asked to recommend long lasting lipsticks and this Today’s Special Value collection contains the ultimate long-wear answer to the perfect pout: Cherry Almond Luscious Lips is a pinky nude colour with an incredibly weightless look and feel.
5. Large retractable Kabuki brush & mini double ended shadow & liner brush
As a make-up artist, I understand the importance of good brushes. They are very important to the work I do and I love both the brushes included in this collection; the mini double-ended shadow and liner brush and the large retractable, angled Kabuki Brush – a perfect partner to the Balance n Brighten foundation.
We would love you to join us when we showcase this incredible line up of beauty must-haves. The Today’s Special Value collection is perfect for anyone who wants versatile, wearable make-up shades and is in need of a make-up ‘pick-me-up’.
Laura and I will be sharing our tips, with quick and easy ways to use these soft and bold colour combinations to allow for universally flattering looks, both day and night.
See you then!
