The Colour of Love

Monday, February 02, 2009 | Tips & How-Tos, application tips

With the day of love now just weeks away, our hearts are aflutter with thoughts of sweet chocolate treats and bountiful bouquets. Whether you’re dining with that special someone or spending the evening with your best girlfriends, embrace the warmth of the season with a soft, romantic look. Here are our Pür Minerals get-gorgeous beauty faves for a Valentine’s Day glow from head to toe.

Get silky-smooth, touchable skin with Pür Body Butter. We promise you’ll fall in love with the light, non-greasy texture and refreshing, lemon-sage scent. Pür Tip: Apply after you get out of the shower when skin is damp (not drenched) to lock in moisture and leave skin soft all day long.   

Face & Cheeks
Known as “the look of love in a compact,” Pür Radiance mineral powder gives skin a warm, healthy glow with just a hint of sparkle. The secret? It’s made with the light-reflecting mineral mica to catch the light from different angles and impart radiance to the skin.

Universal Marble Powder in Pink is the pür-fect way for lighter skin tones to give cheeks a natural, rosy glow. Use the Powder Brush or Blush Brush to dust onto the apples of cheeks and blend up to the hairline. Darker skin tones should try Pressed Mineral Blush in Cherry Opal.

The eyes can say it all on Valentine’s Day. Don’t go too dark with a smoky eye, though. Instead, keep things light and lovely with natural looking liner and shimmering shadows. Sweep shades of pink, purple and champagne over your lids and top your lashes with a lengthening mascara to convey a subtle allure.

Pür Picks: Pressed Mineral Shadows in Rose Quartz, Violet Iolite and Champagne Citrine.

No Valentine’s Day look would be complete without luscious lips. Classic reds and pinks are a pür-fect way to enhance your pout. A chic, matte lipstick or a shiny gloss are each stylish and sexy in their own right, just be sure to use a nourishing, hydrating formula to help keep lips soft and kissable.

We love love love Mineral Shea Butter Lipsticks in Frosted Tilasite and Rose Garnet and Pout Plumping Lip Glosses in Pink Quartz and Rose Opal. Sheer colour works best with those fair ladies, while rich, deeper hues complement darker skin tones.
