How do you make your summer look sizzle? With sultry spice colors, that’s how! Save the bright colors for the day, and let the darker side of summer heat up your nights. Need a little inspiration? Here are a few tips to spark your imagination using Pür Minerals’ Spice It Up Kit. Better step back—things are about to get hot.
Summer Blush (and then Some)
With a mosaic blend of copper, cinnamon and pearl tones, Pür’s Spice Marble Powder adds multidimensional warmth to cheeks, eyes and lips. Why is now the perfect time to wear it? Because the rich spice tones complement summer sun-kissed skin better than lighter springtime shades. Wear it as a blush or an eye shadow, contouring with the darker shades and highlighting with the lighter ones. You can also dab it over your lip gloss for a coppery shimmer.
Smoldering, Smoky Eyes
One of our most versatile eye shadows, Spiced Mica looks fabulous any time of the year—but summer is when it really shines. A rich coppery brown with a velvety finish, it adds much needed depth and dimension to skin that’s naturally darker in the summer. Use it to contour your creases and create a smoky effect for instant nighttime drama. For added intensity and shimmer, highlight eyelids with the pearl shade of the Marble Powder.
Sizzling Summer Lips
Our Spice It Up Kit features two perfectly paired lip products to put the final touches on your summer look. Line and fill in lips with the Spiced Amber Mineral Lip Pencil and play off your spiced eye look with a layer of Pout Plumping Lip Gloss in Spiced Barite. Lightly dab or dust on a hint of Marble Powder for added shimmer that’s ready for a night out on the town.
