PUR Epic Illusion Contour Kit


Everything you need to contour at home or on the go is conveniently packed into the fantastic Pür Epic Illusion Artist’s Blush & Contour Palette.  Filled with six beautiful colors with shimmer and satin it has the perfect collection to highlight and contour a variety of skin tones.


I have very fair skin and found this shades were very easy to use without being too heavy and for darker skin tones the powder is very buildable to create the perfect tone for everyone.

My favorite is the Unreal to highlight above my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose. I use a mix of Fable and Fiction to contour under my cheekbone and along my jawbone. And the final touch is Mauvelous from the apple of my cheeks up along my cheekbone.

This palette is amazing and I have even used the shades as eye shadows in a pinch when I was away for the night. The colors have amazing pigment and apply velvety smooth. The best part is the product looks as good at the end of my day as it did at the start. Definitely one of the truest and longest lasting palettes I have used in awhile. Grab one now and keep everything you need for a beautiful contoured and highlighted look all in one easy to use palette.

Teen Choice Awards Makeup Get The Look: Sarah Hyland

Celebrity makeup artist, Allan Avendaño gave Sarah Hyland a simple, yet bold makeup look to complement her yellow two-piece outfit with turquoise jewelry.

Avendaño began creating Sarah’s look starting with the eyes first using the Pür Minerals Cease Crease Eye Shadow Primer to create a flawless base. He then used the Soul Mattes Eye Shadow Palette and applied the Confidant shade all over the eyelid. Using a fluffy crease brush, he patted Sidekick and Alter on the outer corners of the eye and blended the shades into the crease. He used that same shadow combination on the bottom lash line.

“To soften any hard edges, I buffed the BFF shade into the crease and used the Companion shade on the brow bone,” says Avendaño.

He then applied two coats of the Pür Minerals Big Look Mascara on the top lashes and one coat on the bottom before applying individual lashes.

Avendaño used the Pür Minerals Color Correcting Primer Illuminate & Glow followed by the Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation with SPF 15 in Blush Medium with a damp sponge for seamless application. To add dimension to Sarah’s face, he applied the Pür Minerals Mineral Glow on her cheekbones, temples and jawbones. He then applied the Pür Minerals Chateau Cheeks Pressed Powder Blush in Kinky on the apples of her cheeks to add more color.

To highlight, he used the Pür Minerals Afterglow Illuminating Powder on the high points of her cheekbones, the brow bones, the bridge of her nose, the inner corners of her eyes and her cupid’s brow.

To create full and bold-shaped brows, he used the Pür Minerals Wake Up Brows in Mocha and used the highlighter end to amplify the arch of her brow.

Avendaño finished off Sarah’s look by lining and filling in her lips with an orange-red lip liner and applied the Pür Minerals Chateau Kisses Plumping Lip Gloss in Foxy, giving her a hydrated, full and sexy pout.

In order to achieve the perfect makeup look, you need to start with a flawless canvas. Let Pür Minerals help you minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines and imperfections while making your foundation look even better with their selection of color correcting primers:

Years of ignoring how fair my skin is and sunbathing has left me with some unsightly sun spots on my face. And this time of year they definitely become more noticeable. I just had the chance to try the Pür Minerals Color Correcting primer and I am really impressed with the results.

To cover my age spots I used the peach primer. The formula is thick enough to coat well but feels very light going on my skin and absorbs instantly leaving a smooth surface ready for makeup. I really liked the texture of this primer and that it didn’t feel heavy on my skin or clog my pores. Will definitely be starting my daily makeup routine with this powerhouse.

My skin has a very red undertone and I was eager to see how the green Pür Minerals Color Correcting primer could even out my skin tone. As you can see from the photo above half my forehead has primer while the right half has none. The green primer totally neutralized the red tones in my skin leaving it uniform in color and looking much clearer.

The green primer had the same great lightweight texture and feel on my skin. Once I apply it I can’t even tell I’m wearing any makeup. This is great for covering acne, blotchy skin or discolored skin and I like how a tiny bit goes a long way to correct. A great product to create a clean canvas for your makeup.

Pür Minerals Pout Pen Lip Stain and Hydrating Balm

Need a little punch of color for Spring? Check out the Pür Minerals Pout Pen Lip Stain and Hydrating Balm. I am loving this dynamic lip duo.

The lip balm end is super hydrating and it has been saving my lips on these cool, windy days.  The other end is a lip stain pen that leaves a great pop of color. I find the stain wears pretty well and fades nicely without weird streaks.
