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!

Getting Ready for the Holidays + Christmas Giveaway: Makeup Gift Sets

The holidays come with a long list of to-dos — decorating your home, organising parties, grocery shopping, gift shopping, dress and makeup shopping, the list is endless. Is “get myself ready” on your list too?

Here are some tips on how to have a truly happy holiday:

  1. Organize your to-do list. Group them in categories — home decor, groceries, gift shopping schedules, and the most important of all – ME.
  2. Make a list of the parties you’re attending so you can prepare your dress (especially if it’s a themed party), your makeup look, and your gift (you don’t want to come empty handed).
  3. Make a list of the gifts you want to buy and group them according to family, friends, godchildren.
  4. Get “generic” gifts. It’s hard to give gifts that you will have to return to to shop to be replaced for a bigger size. But oh, keep the receipts just in case!
  5. Personalize generic gifts with cute gift cards or include an item that you think they’ll love. For family and close friends, you might want to know their wishlist!

And the most important of all:

Give yourself a gift! You deserve to be pampered for working hard this year. Get a set of outfit or two, new makeup to welcome 2017, and a ticket to your favourite holiday destination. No, that’s not splurging. It’s called loving yourself a little bit more. Happy holiday!

Concealer tips and tricks to have your skin looking flawless in next to no time!

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Phototouch Concealer Dual Action

A concealer can offer a multitude of benefits while hiding a multitude of sins! But not every concealer can tackle every issue in one application. In general concealers are formulated to target something specific so it’s best to decipher what you want from your concealer and then select which is best for you!

Dark circles

The best way to conceal dark circles is with an under eye corrector.  These are fine textured concealers that have a strong “peachy” tone that counteracts the blueish tinge of the shadows.  By using a good corrector and a lightweight concealer you’ll have the cover you need without a thick mask that falls into fine lines and looks cakey. Try Dual Action Concealer

Redness/broken capillaries

Green correctors used to be the best solution for concealing redness, however they can make the skin look flat and lifeless.  CC Creams (colour correction) with photo-optic filters will help reflect back light on the skin greatly reducing skin redness and the dark red of broken capillaries. Try Luminous CC Cream 20

Pimples

For pimples, an antibacterial concealer is ideal, oil free and non-comedogenic cover ups are best and many now have skin enhancing benefits to sooth inflammation.  Avoid mineral oil, lanolin and talc based products which tend to block the pores and exacerbate the acne. Try Photo Touch Concealer

Rosacea

Avoid oil based products on the skin or occlusive products that trap heat.  CC Creams, Water-based foundation, Mineral Makeup and foundations with soothing ingredients are best. Try Luminous CC Cream 20

When you have selected your concealer follow these top tips to achieve the best coverage you can;

When to apply concealer

If you use a powder foundation, always apply your concealer before your foundation.
If you’re using a liquid foundation, you should apply your concealer after foundation.

A little goes a long way

Don’t go overboard with your concealer because you think it’s necessary to hide that blemish, if you’ve selected the right concealer for you a little really will go a long way.

How to avoid concealers sinking into/accentuating lines, wrinkles and crepey skin

There is a very fine line between over-preparing the skin and causing the product to slip off and under-preparing the skin and causing it to absorb into the skin.  The area should be well hydrated without being greasy so a good eye cream around the eyes and a hydrating concentrate will help prepare the skin for makeup.  Allow time for the product to absorb and settle. The key is not to apply too much product, keep every layer fine and light and you’ll have a more natural and lasting result to your makeup.

Change the Consistency with Primer
If you’re covering larger areas and you want a concealer that is a little more fluid, combine a little with some primer to change the consistency. Try Pore Perfecting Face Primer

How to maintain concealer’s longevity

Avoid touching the concealer with fingers or directly onto the skin, apply concealer with a clean concealer brush to avoid contamination and ingredient breakdown. Try Small Concealer Brush

For the month of June, 2015 when you purchase the ELES Dual Action Concealer OR Photo Touch Concealer receive a Small Concealer Brush for FREE
