Out of sight, out of mind: Concealer tips to be in the know…

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Makeup makeup concealer tips.

  1. When using powder foundation apply Dual Action Concealer BEFORE. When using liquid foundation apply Dual Action Concealer AFTER foundation to allow concealer to set onto skin.
  2. For best results don’t rub Dual Action Concealer but gently pat onto skin and allow it to sink into skin.
  3. To avoid spreading bacteria, always work a little Dual Action Concealer onto your hand and apply with a fresh brush or fingertips onto skin. This will also slightly warm the product to easily work into skin.
  4. Don’t go overboard! A little concealer goes a long way especially when you gently pat into skin rather than rubbing over skin.
  5. When concealing large areas combine Dual Action Concealer with a little primer to make more fluid but keep the long lasting wear and beautiful coverage!

An Everyday Look You’ll Finish in 5 minutes

ELES Cosmetics Australia MIneral Makeup 5 minute look everydayWinter does make people look pale, but you can definitely have that natural pale face without looking sick.

Here’s how:

  1. Base. Use a BB Cream that perfectly matches your skin tone. Unlike foundation powder, BB Cream  provides your skin with a base that projects a more natural glow. A BB Cream with moisturiser, sun protection, primer and great coverage is a good catch, like the ELES BB Cream 30.
  2. Contour. Define your face’s beautiful features by lightly contouring your face using the ELES Mineral Bronzer in Rio de Janeiro. Using a bronzer also adds a healthy, bronzed finish to your skin.
  3. Blush. We all have that signature blush that fits us well and we’ll hoard lots of it to keep up looking naturally fresh for many years. Meet every beauty blogger’s soulmate — The ELES Mineral Blush in Coral Sun — ready to give your skin a burst of sunshine on a cold winter day.
  4. Smoke it out. Your eyes alone can make a huge statement. Forgetting to have it made up can make you look years younger or like you just got out of your bed. Come looking lusciously pretty anywhere you go with the ELES Powderliner in Chocolate.
  5. Add volume. Lush lashes are always, always stunning and beautiful. Pick a mascara that’s hypoallergenic because it gets to the eye sac easily. Our Lush Mascara would be perfect.
  6. Color your pout. You need the perfect nude lipstick to get that natural look and that is because our lips’ colour may sometimes be uneven. Depending on the temperature, our lip colour changes and you certainly don’t want to look like you have super dark lips because of the winter cold. The ELES Micro-Nude is a shade you’ll love.

Keep these 6 must haves in your capsule makeup bag and always look
glowing and naturally healthy, anywhere you go.
