Blue, Red and White – the colours of freedom and love

Happy Australia Day!

We hope you’re having a great LONG weekend. Before we all finally get back to our usual routine tomorrow, we thought we should remind you to make a glam comeback by sporting chic Aussie nails using the ELES Brighton collection! Look at what our girl Joey did as a weekend nail art project:

You can also wear this gorgeous eye shade to give your eyes a bright pop:
ELES Mineral Eye Shadow in Turquoise

Apologies for my thick brows. I’m growing them so I can achieve brows as thick as Lily Collins‘! I applied the ELES mineral eye shadow in Turquoise (an old favourite) using a wet brush and extended it a little bit above the crease so that the colour can still be seen even if my eyes are open. I applied it several times to make it as vivid as this.ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Australia Eye Shadow Turqoise

The Australian flag color combination just makes us feel good and think of freedom and love. We hope we inspired you to do your own Aussie flag nail art and turquoise blue eyes! Take a selfie tomorrow and show us how well you did it.

We felt you’d ask — What’s the difference between the ELES BB Cream, Mineral Sheer Tint, and Liquid Powder Foundation?

All these three provide good coverage plus protection, helping you hide the blemishes while nourishing your skin with special de-ageing formula carefully studied and crafted by ELES. You just have to know when  to use each.

Remember these three things:

  1. The ELES Age Defying BB Cream 30 is for daily use. Achieve a porcelain finish and a healthy, natural glow.
  2. For days when you have to stay outdoors (BBQ day, a trip to the beach, pool party, fun run, city tour), go for the ELES Mineral Sheer Tint with SPF 20 because it holds on to your skin for a longer time. Don’t skip the hydrating sunscreen for added protection.
  3. The Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation SPF 15 is a good base for heavy makeup and would make you look really flawless under the spotlight. The powder finish is perfect for evening affairs.

Is it necessary to have all three? YES! BB Cream is for the healthy glow, Sheer Tint is for longer skin protection, and liquid foundation is for maximum coverage.

This summer, give your face that healthy glow and keep it radiant looking at any time of the day.

Lucky Colors for the Year 2014

No, we’re not superstitious at all. It just feels great to be in the know with what’s trending and what’s not. Chinese zodiac posts explaining feng shui colors are everywhere (believe me, I really want to know so I think I clicked not less than 10 links this morning!) and after getting all confused, I finally found it!

2014 is the year of the wooden horse and the lucky colors for this year are (TADAAA!) wood shades Brown and Green. Water and Earth colors which were popular in 2013 are also in this year because according to Chinese zodiac, water and earth help form, grow and develop wood so you may also accessorize yourself with anything blue for water and black for Earth.

We think the ELES Goddess Gift Set is perfect this year then! Why don’t you send your close friends a “New Year” present? Or maybe give yourself one for a treat? After all, Chinese New Year is on the 31st of January so it’s not really too late. =)

Are you a Chinese zodiac believer?

Even if you’re not, we think it will do you no harm. Some people do it just for fun. You can change the shades anytime you want to anyway. Pantone, for one, declared Radiant Orchid their color for the new year.ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Australia Pantone Radiant Orchid Lucky Color 2014
