Do you remember the time when mineral makeup became the trend on the market? I remember that it was quite about the time I was still a makeup newbie. At first, these were being sold simply by the sample gram sachets or tiny jars in Ebay or in Multiply resellers.
Mineral makeup claims a natural, dewy shine while covering flaws without that heavy feeling. It is also makeup that’s talc-free. Mainstream brands even produced their own nutrient makeup line in line with this trend. Mineral makeup had its cult following in YouTube vloggers and several beauty bloggers both international and local ones.
Since a huge jar of imported nutrient makeup can get too expensive for the startup makeup artist or university student, they were resold from imported brands and repacked in plastic material ziplocs and sold in 1-gram test sizes. Ellana minerals is a local mineral makeup brand that became a cult hit among a lot of girls, makeup designer or not. It’s affordable and it’s really got a lot of yellow-toned tones, named in such yummy-sounding titles like almond latte, cafe breve, and french vanilla latte. The loose nutrient foundations melt seamlessly to your skin making it appear like we genuinely have naturally beautiful and even skin with no visible huge monster pores at all.

Then Back, Ellana can be found in Multiply, Ebay resellers, and SM Makati bazaar stalls. In the past, it still got this look. I still use this as a setting powder after makeup, especially to male models or grooms, who just need to look like they have naturally good skin instead of wearing makeup.
I was asked at the relaunch of Ellana nutrients, which also released new product packaging and their new showroom. The new packaging features artwork created by Manila’s top lifestyle illustrator, Soleil Ignacio. I did say they have makeup tones that fit our Asian skintones right? Well morenas ought to be happy for they have a dark shade too that won’t switch red, ashy, or grey as well.
Love our very own skin. The number one complaint though with nutrient makeup is that they can be quite sloppy to take with you for on-the-go touch ups, since they come in loose form. Thankfully, Ellana now has the Ultimate Pressed blushes and Basis that can come in compacts. For individuals who want to be shine-free throughout the day, maintain your loose powder at your home vanity and take the pressed form with you in your purse. For individuals who just want to look fresh without much coverage, you may use the pressed form since it provides medium to light coverage. And it’s really so quite it appears nice in your purse, office drawer, or touch-up kit.
All you need now are tools for proper makeup application. Obviously, quality makeup wouldn’t be complete if not for brushes. I’m happy Ellana also offers very reasonable brushes so we won’t break the bank for our makeup fix. An individual choice of mine is the smooth angled kabuki clean, which can get makeup in hard-to-reach areas for better coverage.
Not harmful to Php350. For pressed or loose, this is all you need. There’s also dual-head brushes for concealer, brows, lip area, and eyeshadow. The clean cleanser (php 400) is another personal favorite of mine. The refreshing is cherished by me cucumber melon scent it offers. Ideal for quick-cleaning in summertime gigs, or on super stressful gigs.
Brush facial cleanser is important, especially if I’m doing more than one face, say in weddings, fashion shows, or makeup demos. It keeps colors true of being muddy instead. In addition, it prevents the buildup of gel liner in my own gel liner brush so my application continues to be precise. Starting MUAS who can’t afford expensive makeup primers can use Ellana Minerals makeup primer, which functions equally well as the expensive brand. It fills in pores and fine lines, helping us attain naturally flawless skin. It literally says goodbye to shine as it mattifies your skin. I can use this for everyday priming up, and save my expensive one for clients or special occasions.
