No cheekbones? Here’s how to fake them

This is how you fake it ELES Cosmetics supermodel cheekbonesIf you love watching runway fashion shows and scanning through fashion magazines, you’ll notice that trends vary from season to season. And while seasonal looks change in a blink of an eye, classic makeup never ever goes out of style. If you envy those supermodel cheekbones and think you’re far from gifted, good news girl, you can fake them and still look natural. Here’s how:

Create a dewy base

Transform your skin’s texture from pale to a natural, healthy glow with your favourite liquid foundation/BB cream mixed with a little illuminating serum OR try our NEW luminous CC Cream. A clean canvas always makes a great artwork and this can easily be achieved using premium mineral makeup. Top with a finishing powder to seal.

We recommend: ELES Liquid Powder Foundation, ELES Age-Defying BB Cream 30, ELES Luminous CC Cream 20, ELES Liquid Illuminator, ELES Mineral Gemstone Finishing Powder

Contour

Always aim for a natural look. You might want to skip the overly chiseled cheeks like those of the runway stars as you don’t want to look fake while you’re out dealing with your usual stuff. Using a blush brush, lightly apply a mineral bronzer one shade darker to the hollows of the cheeks and you’ll see a slimmer shape of your face starting to form. Apply highlighter right on top of the apple of your cheeks and on your t-zone for a natural shine.

We recommend: ELES Mineral Bronzer

Blush

Let your cheeks stand out! Using the right shade, apply blush on the apple of your cheeks. The rich colour of the blush against the bronzer will create a beautiful contrast and will fulfil the contouring technique.

We recommend: our highly pigmented ELES Baked Blush

Selecting and applying the right colour of blush correctly could be an even harder task. Below is a quick guide on how to apply blush according to your face shape and if you want more tips on picking the right shade for your complexion, read our post: Blushing Beauty 101: How to select and apply the perfect blush

Our secret to looking like a VS angel

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup model face contour highlightThis Spring, transform your skin from dull to delicately luminous and emerge like an angel (yes, just like the look of the VS angels ❤︎). As you know, it’s the season of flowers and it’s also the perfect time to bare a little. Show nothing but glowing beauty this spring by following these tips:

  1. Prepare your skin. Use a gentle exfoliating facial scrub to get rid of dull skin from the past season.  In a few days, you’ll notice your skin clearing up and you’ll have a pretty smooth canvas to begin with.
  2. Pick a good base. Always choose a foundation/BB Cream/sheer tint one shade lighter than your facial skin tone.
  3. Keep it simple. Spring look is supposedly light so you’ll blend with the refreshing environment. A little blush, very minimal eye makeup and a light colour balm would be great.
  4. Top it with this “liquid light” we call the ELES Mineral Sheer Veil to brighten and enhance your skin. Remember your contour lines? Instead of highlighting with just a regular powder, add a light sweep of this on areas to be highlighted and look like an angel!Bring these features forward and downplay any chubby areas.

  • Centre of your forehead
  • Length of your nose
  • Cupid’s bow
  • Centre of your chin

Flawless Makeup Look in Two Minutes

Wouldn’t it be great to have all the time in the world to spend on making ourselves look pretty 24-7? Sadly as a working mum this concept will never become a reality.

Instead I have a few spare minutes in the morning before my toddler clambers over me and demands attention and in that time I want my makeup application to be as smooth and fast as possible as well as looking presentable of course!

Even for those who aren’t busy mum’s, I’m sure we’d all love to spend those extra minutes curled up in bed every day and now you can! Just follow these simple steps on how to achieve a flawless look in just two minutes!

  1. Firstly apply our Age-Defying BB Cream 30 to the face & neck, this multi-tasking wonder cream has it all! It primes, tints, nourishes and evens out skin tone all while helping to strengthen and protect skin! So no need to worry about applying a moisturiser, primer, sunscreen or foundation!

  2. A good blush or duo bronzer is a must to achieve a fresh, healthy glow in an instant. Just that touch of colour to the cheeks can be the perfect pick-me-up remedy if you’re looking tired. Using the Powder Blush Brush  apply Mineral Finishing Powder Bronzer Duo in Mocha Mates to the cheek contours blending well to achieve a soft natural look.Duo Bronzer Compact
  3. Line the entire lash line with Powderliner pencil. This eyeliner is so versatile! Smudge it over the lids for a soft shadow effect, line your eyes for gorgeous definition or smudge it out for the perfect smokey eye using the smudger end of the pencil. Follow with Lush Mascara to really make eyes pop!ELES-2013-Powder-liner-Tornado_resized
  4. If time allows finish with a sweep of Liptox Lipgloss to add that little something to the look. Lipgloss is quicker to apply than a lipstick and a little shimmer always makes you feel younger!Etched Precious -Liptox

Voila! The look is complete and not a second over two minutes and I promise you these products deliver the biggest punch with the least amount of time and effort, yet the results speak for themselves!
