ELES Cosmetics The Big Smoke winter makeup looks

ELES Cosmetics have recently released their Winter makeup looks, The Big Smoke.  I received Mineral Matte Eyeshadows in Hyacinth and Teak, as well as Powder Liner in Copper, to play with.

The Big Smoke winter makeup looks are all about beautiful skin with contoured cheeks, a fruitily kissable lip and a new take on the smokey eye.  Muted on top and smoked out underneath with shades of metallic copper and rich teak, highlighted with a pretty pastel lavender.

I’m sharing some winter makeup looks using ELES Cosmetics.  I recreated ELES Cosmetics The Big Smoke winter makeup look, as well as creating my own take on a pretty day look and a sexy evening look.

ELES Cosmetics | Winter Makeup Looks for Day

For my day winter makeup look using ELES Cosmetics The Big Smoke winter collection colours, I started with ELES Cosmetics Age Defying BB Cream and concealer.  I applied a little ELES Cosmetics Mineral Bronzer in Rio de Janeiro under my cheekbones and some shimmery highlighter around the outer orbital bone.

I smudged a little Mineral Matte Eyeshadow in Hyacinth along my lower lashline, patted a little Mineral Matte Eyeshadow in Teak onto my lids and then blended Mineral Matte Eyeshadow in Hyacinth over the lid for a more subtle day look.

I added blush in plum, highlighted with rose gold shimmer powder, to my cheeks and applied a dark plum berry toned lipstick, along with lashings of deepest black mascara.

ELES Cosmetics | Winter Makeup Looks for Evening

For this sexy evening look, I made up my face using a luminous primer, concealer and velvety finishing powder.  I contoured my face using my How to Contour guide.

Using the ELES Cosmetics The Big Smoke products, I switched the eyeshadow look I created for my day winter makeup look.  I lined the lower lashline with Mineral Matte Eyeshadow in Teak, and applied a little more along the upper lashline.  I intensified the upper lashline with Powder Liner in Copper.  Then I applied Mineral Matte Eyeshadow in Hyacinth heavily to the eyelid, concentrating the colour in the outer corner of the eyelid.

ELES Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Mixed Berries warmed my cheeks, and I used ELES Cosmetics Mineral Bronzer in Rio de Janeiro to contour under my cheekbones, along my jawline and around my temples. I used a pretty shimmer powder to highlight above my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow and under the brows. Lots of mascara for a luxe lash look completed my eyes.

The final step was filling in my lips with Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Nude.  The subtle colour keeps the focus on the sultry eye look.
