Your guide to having luscious lips

ELES Cosmetics Australia Mineral Makeup Quote lipstick enchant the world with logo

“To instantly make a connection, charm him with your eyes.
To make a lasting connection, charm him with your lips.”

And although the latter could mean conversing well and saying the most interesting of things, we’d like to add that on romantic evenings, your words are muted and all a guy sees are your luscious and kissable lips.

Here’s how you could make your lips smooth and pretty, always…

  • Lip Scrub. The winter season could dry up your lips’ moisture so the first thing you should do is to get rid of the dry skin. Wet your lips with a gentle oil that’s good as a makeup remover, massage for a minute and when you see the skin soften, gently scrub with a soft makeup sponge in one direction.
  • Uneven lip colour? Not a problem! Look for a serum that has redefining qualities, one that has the power to brighten lips and define lip contour. We found this wonderful elixir with retinol called Youthful Lip Concentrate by Pevonia. Try it!
  • Plump it up. Get rid of the wrinkles surrounding your lips and iron those fine lines out with with the Pevonia Youthful Lip Cream and emerge with young, naturally plump lips.
  • Use quality lipstick. Invest in good quality lipstick in a bold shade you love and have more time to socialise, rather than retouching your pout so often you’re missing a huge chunk of party fun. Our Micro Bubble Lipsticks are superstars!
  • Pick lip products with long-wearing formula. Gone are the days when matte is the star. Who says gloss can’t go a long way? Try our New ELES Colour Balm in vivid earth colours.
  • Prime. Using a lip primer helps achieve a bold, even lip colour. Not only does it hydrate and protect your lips, a lip primer also helps keep your lipstick smooth and even for a longer time. Try the ELES Pro Lip Primer that makeup artists love.

3 steps to perfect lips

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Red Lips

I have a lip liner (from mom’s overstock train case) but I only touched it once. I traced my lips like a kid working on her coloring book, filled the shape in with a matching lipstick. Guess what! I looked like a duck with over-sized chappy lips. Eversince then I resorted to using lipstick, just that. I want my pout sharp and sexy just like the ones in magazines. What should I do to get sexy lips like the one in the photo above?

In dire need of help,
Never Been Kissed
P.S. I have a confession to make. I’ve never used a lip primer EVER.

Dear Never Been Kissed,

Well we’re not surprised. You are not the only one. Though there are lots of tutorials online and beauty experts seem to say the same tips over and over again, girls are still having a hard time creating a perfectly luscious pout. Take our advice:

1) Thin lips or full lips? By knowing this basic info, you’re narrowing down the list of shades that fit you.
For thin lips, try light but not bright shades like ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Bon Bon and Micro Teaberry and anything that shimmers like ELES Liquid Lustre Lip Gloss. For extra plump lips, use ELES LipTox.
For full lips, try vivid red and earth shades like ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Red and Micro Melon.

2) Innocent or Seductive? Know the personality you wish to project on a particular date or event.
For innocent look, try anything pinkish like ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Tickled Pink and Micro Flamingo, ELES Super Gloss in Super Candy or ELES LipTox in Precious.
For seductive look, deep red would be perfect! Try ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Red and Micro Melon and top with ELES Super Gloss in Pomegranate.

3) Fail safe shade – go NEUTRAL.
For job interviews / office look, try ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Sachet and Bronze,
For first date and ‘Meet the parents’ date, try ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Flamingo and Micro Blush,

4) The power of lip liner. You’ll know the power of a lip liner once you’ve learned how it can change the shape of your lips. See the image below from evalrielin.blogspot.com.

Lip Primers: essential for lasting, luscious lips

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup LIP PRIMER MICRO BUBBLEPrimers are essential to long lasting makeup. Eye primer increases the longevity of your eye shadow for minimal fall out, face primer ensures the smoothest possible base so your foundation whether it be liquid or powder, can easily glide over your face. So what about a lip primer?

Lip primers do the exact same thing but for your lips, to enhance lipstick. A smooth base is created filling the fine lines to prevent your lipstick bleeding away from the lips while ensuring a smooth application. I for one have two toned lips, they are pinker in the middle than they are on the edges. A lip primer provides a base for my lipstick to keep the colour true and even across my entire lip.

The ELES Pro Lip Primer SPF 15 is the secret weapon of every beauty pro! While amplifying lipstick wear it also makes lips appear fuller and more sensuous, thanks to the ELES exclusive peptide plumping complex. Super-antioxidants and SPF 15 combine to shield lips from sun damage, dehydration and environmental stress.

But don’t just take my word for it, check out the review from beauty blogger, Quest Jen who can tell you more about this secret little weapon, essential to every beauty bag – http://www.questjen.com/2013/09/do-you-need-lip-primer-for-your-lipstick.html
