    Sheer Makeup
    Whether it’s your foundation or your bronzer, barely there makeup is the look of summer. Choose a bronzing powder with golden undertones, just a shade darker than your skin tone to give you that bronzed goddess look. Foundation should be light and natural looking for a fresh, radiant complexion.

    Pür Pick: For a natural, sun-kissed glow, opt for Mineral Glow; for lightweight, flawless coverage, go with 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup SPF 15.
  • Nude Lips
    This cult classic has reemerged just in time for summer. From the runways to the beaches, nude lips are back in a big way. For the ultimate nude look, try a matte lip finish. Just fill in your lips with a light–colored lip pencil and top with a neutral lipstick or tint.
    Pür Pick: Mineral Lip Tint SPF 15 in Sandy Quartz paired with Mineral Lip Defining Pencil in Natural Calcite gives lips a natural, taupe tint with a matte finish.

    Shimmering Lids
    What better way to beat the heat than with a cool eye shadow? Sweep a bright blue, an emerald green or a steely gray across your lids to add a sparkle to your summer look. Go light on colour during the day, but don’t be afraid to be a little more daring in the evening.

    Pür Pick: Pressed Mineral Shadows in Blue Lazulite and Burgundy Malachite. While the former is a cool, ocean hue, the latter was deemed a gorgeous gray by beauty editors at W magazine.
  • Pastel Cheeks
    Soft, pink cheeks are the perfect complement to shimmering eye makeup. The right pink will give you a natural, rosy glow to help play up your eyes and light up your whole complexion. Apply a pastel blusher to the apples of your cheeks and blend up to your hairline.
    Pür Pick: Universal Marble Powder in Pink illuminates skin and brightens cheeks with a soft, rosy glow. Bonus: This blushing powder can also be used to add a touch of pink to eyes and lips.
