Kristen StewartThe eyes have it! Kristen Stewart rocked a smokey sultry eye, drawing attention to those gorgeous green eyes. A strong eye is a great way to add an element of drama without the high maintenance of a red or bold lip.

Recreate the look by lining the eyes with ELES Powder Liner in Coal.  Use the sponge end of the pencil to gently blend out the line. Intensify the drama with ELES Mineral Matte Shadow in Teak and brighten eyes by patting ELES Mineral Shadow in Pearl to the inner corner of the eye.

Oliva Munn MET 2014Olivia Munn mixed a subdued eye with an orange lip and perfectly groomed brows.

To create the look first use the spiral end of the ELES Brow Blender Pencil to groom eyebrows into place. Using the pencil gently fill in the eyebrows with soft strokes to achieve a natural yet well-defined brow.

Finish with ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Bronze. Blot with a tissue and apply a second coat to the centre of the lips to create a coral stained semi-matte effect. Don’t forget the fresh complexion to set off the look!

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - ArrivalsLavender locks, a matte complexion and nude lip was Nicole Richie’s look of choice!

Perfect your complexion with ELES Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation SPF 15. The beautiful foundation glides on like silk for a soft-matte, powder finish and is buildable from light to full coverage. A nude lip completes the look allowing the hair to steal the show. Apply a kiss of ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Nude for the perfect peach toned nude.

What was your favourite look for the 2014 MET Ball?

Flawless Makeup Look in Two Minutes

Wouldn’t it be great to have all the time in the world to spend on making ourselves look pretty 24-7? Sadly as a working mum this concept will never become a reality.

Instead I have a few spare minutes in the morning before my toddler clambers over me and demands attention and in that time I want my makeup application to be as smooth and fast as possible as well as looking presentable of course!

Even for those who aren’t busy mum’s, I’m sure we’d all love to spend those extra minutes curled up in bed every day and now you can! Just follow these simple steps on how to achieve a flawless look in just two minutes!

  1. Firstly apply our Age-Defying BB Cream 30 to the face & neck, this multi-tasking wonder cream has it all! It primes, tints, nourishes and evens out skin tone all while helping to strengthen and protect skin! So no need to worry about applying a moisturiser, primer, sunscreen or foundation!

  2. A good blush or duo bronzer is a must to achieve a fresh, healthy glow in an instant. Just that touch of colour to the cheeks can be the perfect pick-me-up remedy if you’re looking tired. Using the Powder Blush Brush  apply Mineral Finishing Powder Bronzer Duo in Mocha Mates to the cheek contours blending well to achieve a soft natural look.Duo Bronzer Compact
  3. Line the entire lash line with Powderliner pencil. This eyeliner is so versatile! Smudge it over the lids for a soft shadow effect, line your eyes for gorgeous definition or smudge it out for the perfect smokey eye using the smudger end of the pencil. Follow with Lush Mascara to really make eyes pop!ELES-2013-Powder-liner-Tornado_resized
  4. If time allows finish with a sweep of Liptox Lipgloss to add that little something to the look. Lipgloss is quicker to apply than a lipstick and a little shimmer always makes you feel younger!Etched Precious -Liptox

Voila! The look is complete and not a second over two minutes and I promise you these products deliver the biggest punch with the least amount of time and effort, yet the results speak for themselves!
