I really like Pur Minerals, especially their mascaras! I don’t know of any beauty lover who wouldn’t want these items for the holidays! Let’s start with the mascaras!
Fully Charged Powered by Magnetic Technology is a mascara that contains a “magnetic” polymer matrix that wraps each lash. The magic of this mascara is that it lifts lashes, gives volume and adds deep color. My lashes don’t clump with this, it doesn’t wear off during long days, my lashes look just as good in the evening as when I applied in the morning.
This one may be my most favorite mascara of the year!
If you want serious volume, try Volume Vixen! The 4-in-1 Full Volume Mascara with Keratin strengthens with the keratin and also hydrates, adds rich color, creates a “false lash” look that is dramatic and noticeable! I love really long, dark eyelashes and this one really creates a bold look. Even my light, thin lashes look like I’m wearing lash extensions!
A little dab of Bronze Your Selfie/Skin-Perfecting Face and Body Liquid Bronzer makes skin glow from head to toe! Use it by itself or add to your foundation for an extra pop of radiance. If you tend to be paler in the winter like me, this is amazing for warming the complexion. I use just one little dab in my foundation to add some light, sun-kissed color.
Use by itself on arms and legs (or where ever you want some bronze!) or add a little to body oil or lotion. If I were wearing shorts or a skirt, I would keep this close to adding a bronzed look to my legs!
The Hydrating Setting Spray is a multi-use product that infuses skin with a burst of moisture! It also wakes up tired skin in need of a bit of hydration AND it can be used to set your makeup. This is so perfect for women over forty who are wanting to set foundation without having it creep into fine lines and wrinkles. Setting powder and matte foundation often make me look older and I want to look healthy and hydrated!
If you have dry skin, you will love how this makes skin look dewy! I have also used this on a clean face, before using a moisturizer or after a good face mask!
I LOVE THIS! The Correcting Primer is an A+ item!
My own skin tone can be uneven depending on how much sleep I get, allergies etc. This primer completely readies my skin for foundation. It hydrates and balances out oil, complexion even, and it creates a clean, smooth palette for foundation and concealer.
If you have oily areas of your face, you will love how this keeps oil in check all day yet it does not dry out skin. Redness appears calmer and the primer also makes foundation stay on all day.
If your skin is super oily or oily just in the T-zone, this Make It Matte is what you need! When I was a teenager, I had super oily skin and I would have used this daily instead of feverishly applying face powder.
You can use this mattifier under makeup, over makeup, throughout the day, whenever you need it. Shine is eliminated, but skin doesn’t look dry. The size of this is perfect for your purse!
I really love and frequently use palettes like the one above and below! The Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette is absolutely beautiful with colors that you will use over and over. Copper, bronze and neutral colors come together in a sleek palette.
These colors are in constant rotation, they blend beautifully. On days when I’m out running errands and don’t need a dramatic eye, I use the lighter colors, but going out at night, I like a smoky eye so I use the darker colors.
You don’t need much with these, they are very pigmented! Use a light hand upon application!
This one is called the Goal Digger Vanity Palette. These are rich, pigmented colors! The little round compact includes four eyeshadows, a blush, bronzer, and highlighter all in one cute round mirrored package.
This one is perfect for travel, you have everything you need in one palette including a decent sized mirror.
