Turn back the clock with highlighters

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Liquid IlluminatorIf a highlighter is not part of your daily makeup routine, you might as well send your skin to the retirement home.

Long before all other signs of ageing set in, facial hollows, dark bags, lines and wrinkles, sorry to be a Debbie Downer! Your skin begins to lose its glow and becomes more sallow and dull.

But it’s never too late to turn back the clock. A contoured, well defined face with a gorgeous glow is just one product away, that’s right, fake it with ELES Liquid Illuminator.

Used properly, a highlighter can revive a dull complexion, accentuate cheekbones, slenderize the nose and even camouflage skin ageing. In a nutshell, nothing can mimic a facelift like a well applied highlighter.

So how do you use it?

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Australia BEFORE AND AFTER LIQUID ILLUMINATOR 806 x 806

To brighten the skin

Simply add a small pea size amount into your regular foundation or BB Cream for a subtle, luminous glow.

To accentuate the cheekbones

Apply in a “V” directly to the high points of the cheeks patting out to the hairline and coming back just under the brow

To emphasise the neck and decollete

Apply to high points ie: down the centre of the neck, on the collar bones and on the chest avoiding the cleavage.

To slim down the nose

Simply pat a fine line down the centre of the nose, the longer the line, the longer the nose will appear.

To brighten the eyes and reduce a fatigued look

Apply a very thin layer to the inner eye area at the bridge of the nose and follow with a deeper layer around the tear ducts in small “V”.

To accentuate a pout

Give the illusion of a fuller pout by applying a small dab just above the cupid’s bow on your lip.

ELES Liquid Illuminators come in 3 gorgeous shades:

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Liquid Illuminator composite

Champagne for fair and cool skin tones.

Your guide to having luscious lips

ELES Cosmetics Australia Mineral Makeup Quote lipstick enchant the world with logo

“To instantly make a connection, charm him with your eyes.
To make a lasting connection, charm him with your lips.”

And although the latter could mean conversing well and saying the most interesting of things, we’d like to add that on romantic evenings, your words are muted and all a guy sees are your luscious and kissable lips.

Here’s how you could make your lips smooth and pretty, always…

  • Lip Scrub. The winter season could dry up your lips’ moisture so the first thing you should do is to get rid of the dry skin. Wet your lips with a gentle oil that’s good as a makeup remover, massage for a minute and when you see the skin soften, gently scrub with a soft makeup sponge in one direction.
  • Uneven lip colour? Not a problem! Look for a serum that has redefining qualities, one that has the power to brighten lips and define lip contour. We found this wonderful elixir with retinol called Youthful Lip Concentrate by Pevonia. Try it!
  • Plump it up. Get rid of the wrinkles surrounding your lips and iron those fine lines out with with the Pevonia Youthful Lip Cream and emerge with young, naturally plump lips.
  • Use quality lipstick. Invest in good quality lipstick in a bold shade you love and have more time to socialise, rather than retouching your pout so often you’re missing a huge chunk of party fun. Our Micro Bubble Lipsticks are superstars!
  • Pick lip products with long-wearing formula. Gone are the days when matte is the star. Who says gloss can’t go a long way? Try our New ELES Colour Balm in vivid earth colours.
  • Prime. Using a lip primer helps achieve a bold, even lip colour. Not only does it hydrate and protect your lips, a lip primer also helps keep your lipstick smooth and even for a longer time. Try the ELES Pro Lip Primer that makeup artists love.
