ELES 12 TRENDS OF CHRISTMAS 2014

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.

  1. BARE FACED BEAUTY

8

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!

  1. THE COLOUR PURPLE

2

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.

  1. RETURN OF THE RED LIP

3

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.

  1. THE MESSY CENTRE PART

4

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.

  1. SOFTER MORE NATURAL BROWS

5

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

  1. HAIR ADORNMENTS

6

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

  1. GRAPHIC EYELINER

7

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

  1. HIGH SHINE

primer

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

  1. HIPPY CHICK

9

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.

  1. THE LOW PONY TAIL

10

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!

  1. THE MIDAS TOUCH

11

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

  1. MULTI-COLOUR NAILS

12

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!
