Sexy as your LBD!

It’s the only colour in the universe that could go from  totally punk to extremely ritzy! Wearing this shade requires either off-the-edge style or utmost elegance. It is not every woman’s go to nail polish and definitely not something you’d pick when you want to play it safe. It is simply bold. Plain is an understatement. BLACK is as sexy as your treasured LBD.

And when the ELES ladies are totally in the mood for some art lovin’, or when our neurons need a break, we paint our nails. Here’s our moodboard for today (a Launceston Cup special). All photos were grabbed from Pinterest and we totally imagined to do all these with the matt-gorgeous ELES Phantom Black from our Masquerade Collection.

What the experts are saying about the ELES Summer Look Earth Goddess

A hot, long (and at times unbearable!) Australian summer lends itself to a soft, natural and hazy makeup look to see the warm days through.

The ELES Earth Goddess Summer combines earth tones with a warm bronze to exude a healthy, sun kissed glow. Created by using the Age Defying BB Cream, Mineral Sheer Bronzer for skin the shines through with a glowing radiance; Signature Quad in Naturalist & Dimensional Cake Liner in Chocolate Spice for smoky buildable earth tones and Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Mocha for natural lips with a creamy finish.

Brows are soft and natural and lashes long, voluminous and feathery to softly smoulder. The ELES Earth Goddess embodies the natural, sun beaten landscape and carefree essence of an Australian Summer!

Want to know more? Read what expert beauty bloggers from across the nation had to say about this gorgeous look, reminiscent of a hazy warm summer.

Age Defying BB Cream 30 in Light
“The coverage is excellent, plus gives a beautiful dewy look to the face.”

Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Mocha
“It is far more mauve than it appears in the tube and gives the lips a pretty natural colour whilst allowing the eyes to take focus. It wears beautifully and is comfortable upon the lips. Not to be underestimated!”

Mineral Sheer Bronzer in Rio De Janeiro
“It is actually sheer so doesn’t require the precision touch of a butterfly to get it right. Want more? Just layer on more. I absolutely adore this bronzer and it has made it to my daily face list.”

“The Mineral Sheer Bronzer in Rio De Janeiro was a perfect shade for contouring to create a sun kissed look. I’m always wary of orange-toned bronzers however this one was very natural looking.”

“For the eyes, this Eyeshadow Quad in Naturalist provided the staple shades to create a smoky brown look.”

Micro Bubble Lipstick
“I have about 5 different [ELES] shades and cannot fault a single one. They are moisturising, pigmented and a breeze to apply.”

Age Defying BB Cream 30
“This BB cream gave me nice, even coverage and felt really lightweight on my skin. With a Broad Spectrum SPF 30, this is perfect for summer and I have rarely seen other BB creams on the western market that provide this high of an SPF protection.”

Age Defying BB Cream 30
“I have found the BB Cream to be sheer but easily buildable. Make sure you blend it thoroughly, as it has a tanned tinge to it. It packs an SPF 30 punch and is paraben free, so looks after your skin!”

Signature Quad in Naturalist
“ELES have released an on point Signature Quad in Naturalist which consists of all matte shadows that are extremely blendable, last all day and of high quality.”

Mineral Sheer Bronzer in Rio De Janeiro
“It’s an incredible bronzer and I’d go as far as to say that I prefer this one over Nars Laguna purely based on the beautiful formula. It is worth noting that this is oil, talc and fragrance free so if you’re sensitive to any of those this is the perfect bronzer for you.”

3 steps to perfect lips

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Red Lips

I have a lip liner (from mom’s overstock train case) but I only touched it once. I traced my lips like a kid working on her coloring book, filled the shape in with a matching lipstick. Guess what! I looked like a duck with over-sized chappy lips. Eversince then I resorted to using lipstick, just that. I want my pout sharp and sexy just like the ones in magazines. What should I do to get sexy lips like the one in the photo above?

In dire need of help,
Never Been Kissed
P.S. I have a confession to make. I’ve never used a lip primer EVER.

~♥~♥~♥~

Dear Never Been Kissed,

Well we’re not surprised. You are not the only one. Though there are lots of tutorials online and beauty experts seem to say the same tips over and over again, girls are still having a hard time creating a perfectly luscious pout. Take our advice:

1) Thin lips or full lips? By knowing this basic info, you’re narrowing down the list of shades that fit you.
For thin lips, try light but not bright shades like ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Bon Bon and Micro Teaberry and anything that shimmers like ELES Liquid Lustre Lip Gloss. For extra plump lips, use ELES LipTox.
For full lips, try vivid red and earth shades like ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Red and Micro Melon.

2) Innocent or Seductive? Know the personality you wish to project on a particular date or event.
For innocent look, try anything pinkish like ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Tickled Pink and Micro Flamingo, ELES Super Gloss in Super Candy or ELES LipTox in Precious.
For seductive look, deep red would be perfect! Try ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Red and Micro Melon and top with ELES Super Gloss in Pomegranate.

3) Fail safe shade – go NEUTRAL.
For job interviews / office look, try ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Sachet and Bronze,
For first date and ‘Meet the parents’ date, try ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Flamingo and Micro Blush,

4) The power of lip liner. You’ll know the power of a lip liner once you’ve learned how it can change the shape of your lips. See the image below from evalrielin.blogspot.com.

Is RED your favourite colour?

It’s raining hearts today and we’re expecting the love bug to float around until the end of the month. Everybody seems to be extra nice today, giving away candy hearts, warm hugs, and plenty of kisses. We see red everywhere like it’s everyone’s favourite colour!

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Red Lips Blur

What does the colour RED say about you?

  • Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love.
  • Having red as your favorite color identifies you as extrovert and optimistic, courageous and confident person.
  • You are action-oriented and physically active (you know what this means!).
  • Ambitious and competitive, you are a go-getter and wouldn’t settle for second place.

And a deeper research on this colour:

Light red– joy, sexuality, passion, sensitivity, and love
Pink – romance, love, and friendship. It denotes feminine qualities and passiveness
Dark red – vigor, willpower, rage, anger, leadership, courage, longing, malice, and wrath
Brown – stability and denotes masculine qualities

Can you relate? Are these true for you?
