Every Day Make Up Featuring Pur Minerals
I find it incredibly hard to take pictures of myself without coming across increasingly unhinged. There’s something about trying to capture your make up looking good, that gives you a certain psychotic glint in your eye, one which is inexplicable, yet most beauty bloggers can often be seen echoing it. You know what I’m on about. But in a new found pledge to myself to show more of my FACE on my blog, here’s a bit of an ‘every day’ make up look for y’all to have a look at today – that’s what the real bloggers call this kind of thing, isn’t it?
So, for the BASE ON MY FACE LONDON *duhduhduhdu dud ud uduhhh* I’ve been sticking to the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hour Foundation, because why only wear your make up for 24 hours when you can stick it to the man and get 25 hours worth! YEAH! It’s a good foundation in my opinion; full coverage, long lasting, and easy to apply leaving a slightly dewy finish. For a fiver, it’s worth a try if you’re on the look out for a new high street foundation to have a go of. I’ve successfully covered the dark circles around my eyes with the help of the soft focus setting on my camera and the Pur Minerals Liquid Ink Concealer. I’m a sucker for concealers lately and have been trying any I can get my hands on, from the Nudestix Concealer Pencil to my all time favourite Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer, This Pur Minerals Concealer is up there on the top 5 list at the moment, and I love the way it kind of melts in to your skin. It’s one of those effortless products you can just use anywhere, on the go.
Coming soon to Beauty Expert, the Pur Minerals range is all equally as impressive. When I first saw the shades of the Soul Mattes eye shadow palette, I did think they’d all be too pink and not very versatile. But as you can see from the pictures, the shades really aren’t that pink at all! And they blend like a dream. I’m not usually one for matte eyeshadows and I’ve been opting for gold shades a lot recently, but I’ve switched this up on a daily basis for these. Even the brush inside is great! Not to mention the actual box too. I mean, have you ever seen an eyeshadow box concertina out in such a way before? I haven’t. But maybe I’ve just led a sheltered life.
For the lips I’ve simply used my new favourite Essence Lip Stick which I mentioned in this post. It’s such an easy to wear shade and you don’t have to worry about smudging it on your face or getting it on your teeth either. The eyeliner is also the Essence Liquid Ink liner from the aforementioned post. It’s got to be the best eyeliner I’ve used. It slicks on with no hassle and stays put all day.
I did also get to try the Pur Minerals Liquid Veil spray foundation, but unfortunately the shade was too dark for my pasty face, so I can’t really give a proper review of it. However, I have donated it to my mum and she’s going to give it a go. It’s interesting to see a foundation in a spray can! I had some great ideas about being Banksy of my own FACE when I first opened it too *sigh*
