December truly is the most wonderful time of the year, but nothing gets me more excited than NYE. Dressing up, champagne kisses at midnight, glitz and glamour, fresh start, friend and family, it doesn’t get any better than that. To assist in any holiday look this joyful season, Pür Minerals, offers an array of different beauty products to help create long lasting festive looks.
Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation is not your typical pressed-powder foundation, in also doubles as a sunscreen, foundation, powder, concealer in one. When layered, it provides the same coverage a traditional liquid foundation, but without the heavy and weighted down feel. It’s also a fairly good concealer, covering minor imperfections and blemishes, although I don’t think it would cover dark eye circles or major hyperpigmentation? The fact that it has SPF 15 is an added bonus on days you forget. It has a beautiful smooth, somewhat dry texture that applies evenly and effortlessly to the skin for an extremely natural finish. It provides a light to medium coverage that can be built up to medium to full. Although it has a matte finish, it gives a beautiful soft glow that keeps your complexion from looking flat or one dimensional. It retails for $32.
To go hand-in-hand with the Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation is the Chisel Mineral Makeup Brush. It’s incredibly soft, yet somewhat stiff bristles, allow you to buff the foundation into the skin for a seamless, natural finish. It retails for $26.
