How to REALLY create perfect brows – top tips from the ELES experts

Perfect Brows - ELES Cosmetics perfect eyebrows tutorial

Perfect, natural-looking eyebrows are one of the hottest beauty trends right now. Why? Because creating the perfect brows can completely transform your face and make you look 10 years younger! Seriously.

Yes, some people are born with genetically perfect brows (ergh) but believe it or not creating naturally looking ‘full’ brows is something we can all achieve! (yay!) You’ve just got to know how.

We asked Liane Scior, Creator of ELES Cosmetics for her guide on how to create perfect brows at home. Here are her top tips;

  1. Remember your eye brows are sisters not identical twins! They will never be exactly the same and in trying to make them perfectly matched you’ll likely to “over-tweeze”.
  2. Embrace your natural brow shape. Filling in your natural eye brow shape will help you find your perfect fullness.
  3. Don’t overfill the front part of your brow. This area should have soft hair that graduates into more density. If you overfill this area you can make your eye brows look too square and in turn harsh.
  4. The beginning of your brow should be in line with your nostril, not the outside of your nose. If you don’t follow this rule and you have a wide nose, it could mean the gap between your brows will be too large making your nose look wider!

  5. Non-existent brows? You can try to grow thicker brows by applying and massaging oil (castor olive or almond oil best) into the hair follicles at night. Also including fatty fish, nuts, avocado, berries and green leafy vegetables in your diet can promote hair grown and strengthen hair follicles.
  6. Sparse spots in your brows? Use an eye brow pencil and pencil them in. Remember you can literally change your face by knowing how to correctly use an eye brow pencil to fill in your brows. Follow our tutorial below;

  7. Must try: NEW Precision Brow Pencil. It creates “hairlike” strokes for a more natural brow and comes in three shades to suit everyone!
  8. A brow brush will also come in handy when you’ve used too much product and want to soften the look.
  9. Running your brow brush along a soap bar and brushing the brows helps to set them into place, particularly good if your brow hairs grow in every which way.
  10. As well as filling your eyebrows in using a pencil, you can also use an eyebrow powder or shadow. A pencil will help you create a more natural look and conceal sparse areas, while a brow powder or shadow will create the illusion of thicker brows.Try: Brow Sculpt. A two-in-one sculpting product. Long wearing powder helps to fill in, shape and thicken brows while the colour coordinated tinted wax tames and sets the brows.
  11. Make sure you choose the right eye brow pencil or powder shade for you – the colour of your eyebrows should be very close to the tone of your hair. If you choose a colour that is a couple of tones darker than your hair, your eyebrows could look rather unnatural.ELES Cosmetics Perfect Brows - BROW TUTORIAL - Brow-Sculpt-Brunette
  12. Remember to apply your brow product before tweezing your brows, it helps the strays become more visible and will stop you over tweezing.
  13. Before tweezing gently massage facial oil on to the brow bone. This will help strengthen the hair follicles so they won’t easily snap, while also protecting the sensitive skin around the brows from plucking. You can also run an ice cube over your brows to reduce redness and swelling!
  14. Tweeze only every 5-6 weeks.
  15. If you’re not a fan of tweezing and having sensitive skin means waxing for you can equal breakouts or burns and redness, try threading?

Read, digest and go and get yourself your best brows yet!

Proud to be Aussie! ELES was in That’s Life magazine’s “Beauty from our Backyard” article featuring purely Australian skincare and makeup brands.

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup editorial Thats Life Magazine January 2015 Nail Polish


From red lips to glowy skin and the return of low ponytail, read about the themes that occurred again and again at the European spring/summer 2015 fashion shows.



The “no makeup” makeup is a strong theme this season.  Move over heavy makeup and enter the world of tinted moisturisers, BB Creams and Concealers to achieve the perfect bare faced beauty.  We recommend ELES BB Cream, in Light, Medium and Deep for great coverage you can’t see!



It’s a purple haze this season as all the plumb, lilac and violet shades emerge on the eyes and nails to offset warm coral lips.  Try ELES Matte Eye shadow in Hyacinth for a soft icy take on this super-cool look.



Rich berry red, bright orange red and true matte red, they’re all back!  After a season of heavy eyes and “barely there” lips the classic red lip makes a welcome comeback.  Get your pucker up with ELES Colour Balm in Classique for a modern take on an old friend.



In keeping with the trend for “natural and real” beauty, hair partings are moving to centre stage and the aim is to make them less precise and a little askew.



Big, bold, high definition brows move aside for a softer, less defined brow, we recommend ELES Brow Sculpt for a wash of colour rather than a harsh line



Hair is messy but adorned with accessories for an added touch of femininity.  The look is romantic and sweet and anything goes!



Black eyeliner never goes out of style but this year we’ve been more creative; grungy smokey liner, half and half eyeliner (only apply to the outer half of the upper and lower lashes) and heavy bottom eyeliner take over from the precise classic cat eye.  Try our new Gel Liners for lasting and versatile effects



No more powdery, matte complexions, skin is decidedly dewy and luminous. Highlighters, bronzers and moisture rich foundations are the go and the more multi-tasking the better!  We love ELES Mineral Bronzer in Rio De Janeiro, it adds both dimension and subtle shine for a true summer glow



Whether from need to get ready quickly each day or from a desire to return to the 70’s the night time plait and crimpy hair has re-emerged.  This summer the trend is to look relaxed and youthful and less coiffed.  Texturizing hair sprays feature strong in the desire for “bed hair” and soft waves make a comeback.



Always elegant and timeless the low pony makes a comeback, however, put away your combs and brushes the look is more textured and messy.  Think “I’m five years old and doing this myself”.  Great for keeping cool in summer and hiding the “greasies” between hair washes!



Gold is back!  Gold accessories and gold eye-shadow are very on-trend this season and the more the better!  We love ELES Superwear Gel Liner in Baroque, smudge it around your eyes for grungy glitz and glamour



Can’t decide what colour to wear? Easy, wear them all, multi-colour nails take over from fussy nail art and any combination goes.  At $15 a pop you can stock up on ELES healthy nail formulas and go colour mad!
