ELES Winter Look – Retro Classique

Although we’ve been feeling the cold for some time now, it is officially winter today and, although there are more than a few things we dislike about the season, there is much to love including ugg boots, hot chocolates and our new look – Retro Classique.

We’re looking to the past for inspiration this season and we’re absolutely loving berry coloured lips that look good enough to eat and subtly sultry eyes.

Here’s how you can achieve this look to seriously heat things up over winter…

Face First…
Prime: Begin by applying Retexturising Face Primer to face and neck. This virtually weightless serum contains opalescent reflectors that diminish lines and leaves a translucent effect on the skin, creating the smoothest possible base for foundation.
Conceal: Apply Hydra Bright Line Diffuser over dark under eye circles starting with the primer end followed by the tinted end. Use the warmth of your fingers to press/roll and blend into the skin.
Base: Apply a small amount of Liquid Powder Foundation – Porcelain to face and neck blending well to ensure a flawless finish.
Balance and Highlight: Using a blush brush apply Mineral Matte Blush – Adobe to the high points of the cheeks to create a beautiful neutral glow to the skin.

Eyes On:

Begin by applying a wash of Mineral Eye Shadow – Antique White over the entire lid up towards to brow.
Follow with Mineral Eye Shadow – Cashmere across the entire eye lid and slightly above, blending well in the crease to contour.
Finally apply Mineral Eye Shadow – Teak to the lid only, being careful not to go above the crease.

Brow Now:
Define the brows using short feathery strokes of Browblender Pencil – Dark Taupe. Follow with the brush applicator to comb through in an up/outwards motion to soften the pencil and lift the brow hairs.
Complete the eyes with 2 coats of Lush Mascara – Brown on the top lashes.

Lush Lips:
Line and define the lips with automatic Lip liner Earth Red, then apply Micro Bubble Lipstick – Cranberry to finish the look.
