Our Favourite #Selfie Foundation

ELES Cosmetics Makeup Australia - Favourite Selfie FoundationNational Selfie Day may have ended in June, but you can capture your best self all year around with the ELES HD Luminous Foundation. It’s formulated to deflect imperfections so you won’t need the blurring filter for your next selfie. This new tech foundation will do all the high-tech work for you. Plus, you’ll have a luminous glow all day long.

Let’s start with the coverage: It feels very light, you can barely feel it on the skin and you can build it with layers that give you any desired effect from super-light to full. A little goes a very long way! You may need concealer; a little under the eyes and on blemishes if you want the “perfect skin” look, however most are happy with the coverage and don’t feel the need for added cover up.

One thing we love is the flexible pigments in HD Luminous that float above lines and wrinkles and adjust to your facial movements, giving you natural-looking coverage that won’t crease or crack. Great news for those of us with fine lines!

What’s inside? Pro Barrier Complex helps protect and repair damaged skin. This complex contains LCA Complex for advanced moisturization, multi-layer skin renewal and antioxidant protection

It is formulated with ceramides, cholesterol and essential fatty acids to aid in restoring a healthy lipid barrier over impaired skin making it ideal for all skin types, including sensitive and rosacea-prone

It also has specially-engineered Titanium Dioxide which helps scatter light for a more even skin tone and Optical Diffusion Technology which helps minimize the look of lines and wrinkles and acts like a “soft filter” for the skin.

If that’s not enough we’ll throw in some Ascorbyl Glucoside, which slowly releases Vitamin C for all day skin radiance and Silk Powder to help hide pores.

Finally White Water Lily, Indian Jasmine, Vitamin C and Vitamin E help brighten and condition skin.

So all up this foundation is so much more than makeup, in fact, if you took away the pigment you’d have a wonderful anti-ageing skin care product!

And the exciting news is we’ve added two new shades! Welcome Linen and Cream Beige, two of our most popular shades in the Liquid Mineral Foundation.

What’s more…this month when you purchase a HD Luminous Foundation, you’ll receive a free Pro-Blend Sponge, an indispensable tool for getting an airbrush effect to your base!

10 essential makeup tips to conceal rosacea

ELES Cosmetics Makeup Australia - Rosacea Awareness MonthSuffering from facial redness? Flushing? Visible blood vessels? Pustules? Chances are you have rosacea and so do over 45 million other people around the world!

Believe it or not rosacea is actually one of the most common skin conditions and with the right treatment can be kept at bay. However we all know, no matter what our skin type that some days our skin just doesn’t look its best and needs a little bit of makeup loving to conceal those flaws and make way for what appears to be the perfect complexion!

Follow these nine makeup tips and have your flushed skin looking nothing short of flawless in a matter of minutes.

  1. First steps

Make sure you cleanse and moisturise your face with soothing and calming skincare. This will hopefully reduce any inflammation and prepare your skin for makeup application.

  1. Keep things simple

Less is more when it comes to concealing rosacea. Think less products, less likely to aggravate your skin. Opting for multi-tasking products is also a great solution!

  1. Mineral makeup is best

Make sure you select a range of breathable products that are only going to enhance your complexion not clog up your pores and irritate skin even more. Opt for mineral makeup products.

  1. Prime your skin

Using a primer will create a smooth foundation for your makeup while ensuring it stays in place all day. It’ll also create a barrier between your skin and your makeup preventing any further irritation. Try ELES Retexture Crème Face Primer. This deeply soothing liquid-cream made with Aloe Vera leaf extract, Roman Chamomile, Witch Hazel, Calendula, Mallow Flower and Centaurea Cyanus Flower extract, leaves skin with the smoothest sensation. It soothes, hydrates, retexturizes and refines, so foundation applies effortlessly and endures impeccably for hours longer.

  1. Colour correction

Rather than covering up your redness with a thick layer of concealer and foundation, opt for a colour corrector which will help visually correct redness and even out skin tone. Using one with UV protection will also help shield your sensitive skin from exposure that can aggravate rosacea. Try ELES Luminous CC Cream 20. This lightweight, oil-free colour correcting cream with broad spectrum protection, multi-tasks like no other!

  1. Set your makeup with an oil-free foundation powder

A mineral powder is the best choice as its ingredients are usually non-irritating. Apply with a brush rather than a sponge, which can harbour bacteria. Try ELES Mineral Foundation Powder. Highly compatible with common skin sensitivities, this lightweight powder easily adjusts from sheer to richer, more opaque coverage while effectively camouflaging imperfections.

  1. Don’t forget to blush

You might think blush would be the last thing you should apply after concealing any facial redness but by using the right shade it’ll actually distract the eye from problem areas and enhance your complexion for the better. Select peach tones rather than pink or reds though and try a mineral makeup blush – ELES Mineral Matte Blush in Adobe.

  1. Choose extra-gentle eye makeup Eyes can be sensitive so it’s important to treat them as you would your face – gently. Again think mineral makeup shadows – ELES Mineral Matte Shadow (neutral shades can be less irritating since they have less pigment) and hypoallergenic, sensitivity-tested, fragrance-free mascaras. Use ELES Sensitive Mascara.
  1. Choose for a neutral lip colour

Choosing red shades may exacerbate the look of any redness in your skin. Try ELES Moisture Crème Lipstick. This innovative, instantly nourishing lipstick formula provides long-lasting wear and a burst of hydration in one smooth application.

For long term treatment of rosacea, use these makeup tips in conjunction with an effective skincare program specially designed to control rosacea. Check out our blog on a great skincare treatment option for those looking for outstanding results. Say goodbye to rosacea once and for all!

Choose your makeup wisely. The best makeup base for your individual skin needs.

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Foundation Base for your skin type

Do you have blemished skin? Dry skin? Sensitive skin? Oily skin? Skin with mature signs of aging? Whatever your needs we are here to help find a makeup solution to have your complexion looking flawless in next to no time.

First things first, determine your skin type and needs then read on to find out what will be best for you.

Blemished skin

Want to know how to conceal those pesky pimples? Need coverage without clogging pores? Blemish prone skin needs extra attention, not only do you want good coverage to hide any imperfections and create the illusion of flawless skin, you also need makeup that will help combat them.

Be sure to use gentle, oil-free make-up. Mineral is best. It allows the skin to breathe freely and is free of heavy fillers and pore clogging ingredients including talc, dyes, fragrance and mineral oil.

Try ELES Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation SPF 15. An outstanding oil-free liquid formula which glides on velvety smooth and sets to a soft powder finish which lasts all day. Its ‘non-occlusive’ formula allows the foundation to enhance the complexion without covering up the skin, allowing it to “breathe” freely.

This product has made a huge contribution to my confidence as I was unfortunately a victim of adult acne. It is gentle and light on my skin, still allowing my pores to breath. I feel like I’m not wearing any makeup at all when I have it on and there is no oily residue. Amazing.” Justine L

Dry Skin

If your skin in notoriously dry then powder is not your friend, it will only accentuate the dry areas — big no-no! Powders tend to sit on dehydrated skin as opposed to blending in and providing the more ‘natural’ coverage we all desire. Arm yourself with a good cream or liquid foundation or BB Cream. The more hydrating the base the better.

Try ELES BB Cream 30. Packed with moisture replenishing ingredients, this innovative treatment cream primes, tints, nourishes, evens out skin tone, and helps to strengthen and protect skin on contact. Upon application, skin immediately appears more uniform, hydrated and luminous.

This is an excellent base and moisturiser in one! My skin has never looked better…” Jenni D

Sensitive Skin

Go mineral all the way! Mineral makeup is always best for those with sensitive skin or prone to breakouts. Ingredients such as talc, artificial dyes, lanolin and mineral oil which may be found in some foundations are proven to be irritating to many sensitive skin types. Mineral makeup is hypoallergenic, mineral oil free, talc-free, dye free and paraben so you really are applying the best of the best on your skin.

Try ELES Mineral Powder Foundation. Highly compatible for even those with the most sensitive of skin, it works as a translucent powder or a buildable coverage foundation easily adjusting from sheer to richer coverage. Non-irritating, chemical free sunscreen also protects again UV damage.

I have sensitive, reactive skin with pigmentation, capillaries and dermatitis. This product is UNBELIEVABLE. Not only does it leave my skin looking hydrated, it has a really healthy glow & for the first time EVER, people are commenting how good my skin looks.” Maria B

Oily/Combination Skin

Good news! If you have oily skin you’re less prone to deep-set wrinkles in the future! But…you probably have trouble getting your foundation to last all day right?. The hero for oily skin types is prepping skin with a good primer which will keep your foundation in place all day.

Try ELES Pore Perfecting Face Primer. The ultimate multi-tasker! Lightweight and oil-free, the techno advanced formula absorbs oil and reduces pore size to combat shine in multiple ways. While you wear it Salicylic Acid keeps pores clean preventing breakouts, while levelling out roughness to keep foundation looking smooth hour after hour.

If you add any product to your makeup bag make sure it is this one! It acts like a magnet to your mineral makeup holding it on all day long even a night on the town is no match. Love, Love, Love it!” Michelle C

Mature skin

We are all on the quest for youthful skin but many are under the illusion that the more foundation they apply the more seamless their skin will look. Too much foundation can actually have the opposite effect – especially on mature skin – as it can settle into fine lines and wrinkles and make them look more pronounced.

Opt for a CC cream which adapts to your individual skin tone or use a lightweight, luminous foundation with light-reflecting pigments that will make your skin look radiant and youthful. Also go for warmer tones that help counteract complexion pinkness which comes with thinning of the skin and exposure of fine capillaries.

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup CC Cream 20

Try ELES CC Cream 20.  A formidable fusion of skincare and makeup, this anti-aging, lightweight, oil-free colour correcting cream with broad spectrum protection sunscreen soothes, protects, moisturises and dramatically corrects imperfections in one lone application. Micro-encapsulated pigments adapt to individual skin tones while sheer, light-scattering optics help neutralise imperfections by reflecting light away from lines and flaws.

Wonderful product, great coverage, looks so natural and skin looks radiant. Love the additional in-built SPF for protection.” Sarah N
