BeautyNew Year, New Line

Perhaps the best kept beauty secret of 2018 so far is Elcie, a luxurious and comprehensive line of makeup by talented makeup artist Lilit Caradanian. I’m sharing a few of my favorites from the collection which have had the greatest impact on my daily routine and are a delight to use!

My favorite product from the line is the Hydra Enhancer, an alkaline facial mist which elegantly captures the heavenly scent of Jasmine. I love keeping it at my desk as a quick spritz will liven up and restore moisture to my skin, while refreshing my senses. This moisture blast is particularly important to battle the effects of the extremely dry air that indoor heating produces. The Hydra Enhancer is also perfect under makeup and periodically in order to help makeup set and stay put. Antioxidants fight free radicals to slow aging, and anti-bacterial properties keep blemishes at bay. The mist absorbs quickly and feels feather-light. My little secret of this enhancer has also served me well: after an evening including a few cocktails, I spritz generously just before falling into slumber and then immediately after waking to restore moisture and nutrients to skin, and it looks like I got ten hours of sleep!

The Glow Enhancer Dry Face Oil is lightweight and non-greasy, absorbing quickly to boost moisture and illuminate the skin with shimmering minerals. I add the dry oil to my daily moisturizer to boost the moisture level of my skin. It’s a great way to liven up my complexion and to sprinkle a little pixie dust, both literally and figuratively. The effect on skin is a deep, healthy glow which gives a youthful look. It counteracts the tightness and pulling on skin that cold and dry air brings on, allowing it to plump with moisture and feel more elasticized and firm. Meadowfoam Oil locks in natural moisture, Jojoba Oil is an anti-inflammatory and soothing agent which contains vitamins A and E. Rose Hip Oil reduces fine line and wrinkles as it’s chock-full of vitamins, fatty acids, and antioxidants. Miranda Kerr uses it regularly, a strong testament to its benefits! Just shake the bottle to activate and apply 2-3 drops which is enough to work into the face and neck along with moisturizer. The Glow Enhancer leaves my skin incredibly soft and and a perfect canvas ready for makeup.

The Bronzer is a must-have for a sophisticated runway look. I was shocked at the cheekbones that suddenly appeared as I applied a modest amount (the medium shade is perfect for my fair-olive complexion). I shy away from pink-toned blushes, as they often make me look too juvenile or “made-up.” The warmth and contour from the bronzer make it a large-impact part of my makeup routine, and accent what I have naturally. The Bronzer can also be used in a lighter shade with a more diffuse effect to produce a sun-kissed look, even in the dead of winter!
