On Trend: How to Create a Barely-There Base

From the runways of MBFWA to the recent red carpet arrivals, when it comes to building a make-up base, less seems to be more. Barely-there dewy skin is the way to ace your base right now. Plus, it’s easy to replicate and complements a myriad of beauty looks including our Autumn trend metallics.

We’ve already shown you how to nail metallic eyes so now we’re going to show you how to create the glowing, dewy skin of the moment…

Prime: Begin by applying Retexture Cream Face Primer to face and neck. This deeply soothing liqui-cream leaves the skin with the smoothest, hydrated base for foundation.

Conceal: Apply Mineral Illuminator Medium over imperfections and dark under eye circles using the warmth of your fingers to press and blend into the skin.

Base: Apply a small amount of Mineral Sheer Tint – Natural Glow to face and neck blending well to ensure a flawless finish.
ELES TIP:
When it comes to metallic moments, it’s all about subtlety. You want your skin to look like it’s been lit up from within and that can be very difficult to achieve if you’re using a thick, heavy foundation. Our Mineral Sheer Tint provides coverage to even out the skin tone but has a barely-there look that will perfectly complement your glow.

Balance and Highlight: Using a blush brush apply Mineral Blush – Rose Marble to the high points of the cheeks to create a beautiful flush and glow to the skin.

ELES EXTRA: Want more glow? Dab a little Mineral Sheer Veil to the high cheek bones and any other area you think needs a little highlight.
