ELES Spring Sixties

SPRING 2013 – Sixties Vibe
This Spring ELES launch the new seasonal makeup look – Sixties Vibe. This look is all about vibrant youthful eyes and with these soft velvety shades of Aubergine and Purple, the eye whites pop! Team the strong eye with a flawless complexion and nude lips for modern Bardot style beauty.

This collection was put together really well and was such a gorgeous gift to receive from ELES - this little pack included a flower garland and a pair of vintage look sunnies.


Prime: Begin the look by applying the Retexturizing Face Primer to face and neck to create the smoothest possible base for foundation. This virtually weightless serum contains opalescent reflectors that diminish lines and leaves a translucent effect on the skin.

We recommend applying the eye makeup before your foundation to avoid fall out on the finished look.


NewQuad Shadow in Debutante

Step 1. Begin by applying the second darkest shade along the eye lid, pat the colour onto the lid then softly blend the edges.

Step 2. Apply the darkest shade in the outer corner of the eye blending up into a V shape and into the crease line, build the colour slowly with a concentration of colour on the outer eye.  Blend the edges well to soften and “smoke out” the effect.

Step 3.  Apply the second lightest shade beneath the lower lashes.

Step 4.  Apply the lightest shade on the inner corner of the eye near the tear duct and beneath the lower lashes about 1/3 of the way in.  Sweep a small amount under the brows to add extra dimension.

NewDimensional Cake Liner in Plum Crazy

Step 1.  Using a wet liner brush pick up some of the colour on the left side of the pallet and press into the upper lash line tapering out to create a soft wing in the outer corner.

Step 2.  Using the same brush (no need to re-wet as this is applied dry) take the shimmery shade on the right and press into the line for added sparkle.

Complete the eyes with a coat of Lush Mascara in Black on the upper and lower lashes, allow to dry and repeat for super thick, feather lashes.

Brows are combed and defined using Browblender Pencil in Dark Taupe.

Clean up under the eyes to remove any shadow fallout and apply your foundation.


Base: Using Mineral Powder Foundation Pressed SPF 15, blend onto face and neck with the foundation sponge to achieve a flawless finish.
Balance and highlight: using a blush brush apply Mineral Blush in Coral Sun to the apples of the cheeks to create a beautiful natural glow to the skin.


Apply Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Nude to the lips for a soft and full pout, apply one coat and blot with a tissue, apply another coat and blot again for a matte finish.

I'm no make-up artist but here is my Spring Sixties eyes 


4 silky pearlescent shades within one convenient compact, magical alone but mesmerising when they merge. Earth-derived micro-minerals produce a smoother application for longer lasting eyeshadow that is crease resistant.

I am a very big fan of the ELES brand as a whole but something I really enjoy from ELES is the quads - they always have gorgeous silky shades that make those babies pop! 
If you're a regular reader then you will know I am usually only sporting brown shades on my eyes but ELES got me out of my comfort area with some purples (the photo doesn't do justice to the colors). 
It leaves you with those gorgeous silk eyes that don't crease and need another round of application throughout the day. 
I love that this quad has a mirror in it - 2 things I think that are so important with the design of eyeshadows is that they need to have a mirror and to have a little applicator brush (which the applicator brush isn't in ELES but hopefully an innovation for future).

Part matte, part shimmer! Pair the two to add definition and drama. Transform eyes with this professionally paired cake eyeliner duo that delivers high definition, real drama and true long lasting colour. Use the matte side to define; the shimmering side to dramatize. Hypoallergenic. Paraben and fragrance-free.

This is the shadows you will be using with the wet brush to give off that vibrant and popping color. My photo above again doesn't show justice to the ELES products (P.N - No photo will ever do justice, you need to see these products are in your hot little hands!) I've never known that you could get a shadow to make an eyeliner so this was really beneficial for me.
I love the shimmer in the shadows - there are like no shimmer shadows I have ever seen! 

This revolutionary, skin-smoothing blush floats over skin to impart a soft, sheer finish while deflecting light away from flaws. Its hypoallergenic silky, satin-like formula is loaded with Vitamins A, E and C to condition and protect the skin. Free of chemical ‘nasties’ it allows skin to “breathe” freely while natural minerals shield against age aggressors.

I'm no big daredevil when it comes to fashion dos and dont's - I like to stick to the comfortable 'blend-in' with everyone with bronzed cheeks because I have tanned olivey skin I can get away with a real dark bronzer on my cheeks but with pinks... not so much!
ELES blush shocked me and I can actually wear it without feeling like I look overdone with rosey cheeks. It is beautifully light and goes on so smoothly.

 Rich, cream colour and protective treatment in one. Creamy, long lasting, feather resistant formula keeps lips soft and colour fresh for hours. High pigment levels deposit rich, opaque colour that lasts while Micro-bubble spheres continually release lip conditioners, while helping to set lip colour.

As you all know I am not a big wearer of lippy but when there is subtle light colors then I'll be in. Micro Bubble Lipstick in Nude was a treat for my lips... didn't wear like I was wearing anything it was so light on my lips and they felt super soft as if I had just applied my lip gloss treatments on. 
I really like the packaging on this lipstick! Would have to be my fav for lippys - it looks like a bullet!

I can't wait to try more of ELES and experience all they have to offer! Future goal right there - try every ELES product!
