Your Lip Shape Personality Guide + Our Recommendations

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup colour balm lipstick lip shape personalityApparently, it’s not just our eyes that say something about our personality. Our lips have something to tell too and Miami-based Makeup Artist Marissa Nemes names the different lip shape personalities she knows of. Here’s the list and recommendations from ELES:

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup colour lipstick full lips scarlett johansson angelina jolie megan fox
Full and Curvy – Confident, Agressive, Seductive

Having full lips means you do not need too much attention on your lips after all. To not take all the focus to your lips, lessen or skip the lip liner and stick to subtle pink or plain lip gloss like CELEBRATE. But if you want to look really, really sexy for a date, by all means, go full red in CLASSIQUE.

You are independent and would love to take charge. Any colour suits you and to match your personality, ELES recommends SIREN.

Thin lips are naturally sweet and neutral, pinky beige would be a perfect match. We recommend SOPHISTICATE.

Keep it glossy and charming with a bright shade like PARTY.

It’s all or nothing for this lip shape. It’s either you go full lippie or just plain nude. Use a lip liner to define your lips, applying jus inside your natural lip line. For daytime look, use a light shade like NUDE and go CLASSIQUE in the evening.

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup colour balm tips to look after your lips

Tips to look after your lips

ELES Cosmetics Makeup lips

  1. Drink Water. Rule of thumb for healthy body and skin, drink water! Lips show first signs of dehydration and will not take well to Lipstick or Gloss, so be sure to keep moisture levels high for soft, supple lips.
  2. Exfoliate. When you exfoliate your face gently massage a small amount your lips to rid them of flaking, dry skin. Your lips will also be more receptive to the hydrating balms to apply.
  3. Prime to perfection. Primer for the face allows for a long lasting, flawless coverage of foundation, and this is exactly what the ELES Pro Lip Primer SPF 15 does for lips! This multi-tasking wonder evens the texture and tone of your lips for a perfect application of lipstick. It also plumps, softens and smooths lips with a formulation of collagen and peptides. Here’s a handy tip: use at night alone before bed for a night time treatment to perfect your pout.

  4. Nurture lips throughout the day and night, not just before applying a lipstick! How many times have you gone to apply lipstick at the end of a work day, before dinner only to realise your lips are parched, heavily creased and anything but ready to show off your favourite Micro Bubble Lipstick colour?!Be sure to keep lips smooth and supple during the day. Ditch the dry out with the Colour Balm! A superior pigment and high shine that doesn’t compromise hydrating or protecting benefits as age defying properties and vitamins E and C deliver antioxidant protection.ELES COLOUR BALM
  5. Blot lipstick or lip gloss to your liking. Convert an ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick to a lip stain by first applying the lipstick, then blotting with a tissue and following with the Super Gloss in Clear. You will have a gloss finish and lighter shade, always a great tip for when lipstick fades from the lips.

Out of sight, out of mind: Concealer tips to be in the know…

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup makeup concealer tips.

  1. When using powder foundation apply Dual Action Concealer BEFORE. When using liquid foundation apply Dual Action Concealer AFTER foundation to allow concealer to set onto skin.
  2. For best results don’t rub Dual Action Concealer but gently pat onto skin and allow it to sink into skin.
  3. To avoid spreading bacteria, always work a little Dual Action Concealer onto your hand and apply with a fresh brush or fingertips onto skin. This will also slightly warm the product to easily work into skin.
  4. Don’t go overboard! A little concealer goes a long way especially when you gently pat into skin rather than rubbing over skin.
  5. When concealing large areas combine Dual Action Concealer with a little primer to make more fluid but keep the long lasting wear and beautiful coverage!
