“We want to make all women feel beautiful and worthy whether they’re 19 or 90.”~ Laura Geller
Early in Laura Geller’s career, she loved two things: beauty and Broadway. The born-and-raised New Yorker combined both when she landed a job backstage as a theatrical makeup artist. Soon after, she took center stage when she opened her namesake makeup studio on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
During the 20+ years the studio was in business, Laura became known for her wearable looks and magnetic personality–two talents that made her a resounding success on air at QVC. For example, in 1997, the first product from her eponymous makeup line–a highlight and contour kit–sold out in minutes. A few years later, Laura Geller Beauty’s award-winning Spackle Skin Perfecting Primer was born. Two decades later, it remains a cult-favorite.
After Spackle took off, the brand quickly became known for pioneering the primer category and bringing baked makeup to the masses. Handcrafted in Italy, Laura Geller Beauty’s iconic baked formulas are made with mature skin in mind and deliver weightless, silky color that never cakes. This caught the attention of AS Beauty, a parent company that primarily focuses on female entrepreneurs. They added Laura Geller Beauty to the family in 2019.
Two years later, Laura Geller Beauty made the bold decision to exclusively feature women over 40 in advertising, social media, and on LauraGeller.com. As part of these ongoing eforts to celebrate beauty later in life, the brand joined forces with TV legend and activist Fran Drescher and legendary supermodel Paulina Porizkova for its newest campaigns.

Using fitness as part of her healing journey, she set out to design athletic shoes exclusively for US. We're talking shoes made specifically for a woman's unique foot shape, muscle movement, and build — not just a sized-down version of a man's shoe. It's pretty powerful stuff.

Aldean has joined forces with Harper Ellis Style to create a collection of clip-in hair extensions with a focus of finding your beauty icon within.
The line has seven brass-free colors formulated by top color specialists in the industry in what Aldean is calling the Icon Collection. The seven colors will include The Everest, The Maui, The Dolly, The Posh, The Brittany, The Havana, and The Roman—intentionally named by Aldean. "The Maui is for my dimensional golden blondes, and it reminds me of the golden sunsets in Hawaii where Jason and I spent our honeymoon," said Aldean.
Each color will come in two lengths, 16 inches, and 22 inches, and will feature color-coded clips with a color key for insertion. The clip-in hair extensions will also include a silicone band that will allow the hair to lay flat for comfort. The wefts are 100% human Remy hair and double drawn from root to end to provide quality and thickness throughout.
