We’ve long been a fan of celebrity makeup artist Samuel Paul and the beautiful looks he creates. You can see his work gracing the pages of magazines, in fashion advertisements and at red carpet events – and chances are you have seen them often!
He has worked with Olivia Munn, Nikki Reed, Azealia Banks and many more. We recently had the honor of chatting with Samuel and caught up on topics like what we can find in his kit, beauty trends for 2015, the best makeup tips and much more.

Punk and grunge looks heavily influenced this season’s runway shows—and none more so than Saint Laurent. We saw models walking the runway in plaid shirts, baby doll dresses and combat boots. The look was updated by a slightly more polished and made up beauty look, which you can get in just a few steps with some of your favorite Pür Minerals products.
Want that naturally flawless look seen in the hottest celebrity magazines? You don’t need an army of makeup artists to get it. Pür’s new Bare It All 4-Piece Collection (link no longer available) is your secret to highlighting and contouring like a pro. Inside, you’ll get our exclusive Pure Black Precision Eyeliner, Mineral Blush in Peep Show, Au Naturel Lipstick and Contour/Highlight Powder Duo for enhancing your natural features with expert ease.

Caroline Sims knows how to handle a beauty emergency. The UK-based makeup wizard has worked on some of the most demanding photo shoots and fashion shows there are, including projects for Vogue and Tatler and behind the scenes for Armani and Marc Jacobs. When faced with an unexpected blemish or discoloration, she reaches for Disappearing Act™ 4-in-1 Concealer. Here’s why she loves it and how she uses it on and off the set:
“[Disappearing Act is] a fantastic correcting and camouflaging concealer for covering dark circles and imperfections. It’s not just a cover-up, as it purifies the skin while you wear it. Apply to the skin with a synthetic brush and then pat with your finger to soften edges for a flawless result.”

Ever wonder who’s rocking Pür behind the scenes and on camera? We caught up with Rochelle Aytes from the hit new ABC series “Mistresses” on her way to PIX 11 News in New York. The ever-stylish star was seen touching up her look (created by celebrity makeup artist Saajida O’Quinn) with one of Pür’s hot new Lip Gloss Sticks. Talk about a screen-worthy pout!

At the 2014 Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader calendar shoot, Pür pulled out all the stops to make the girls camera-ready! We used 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup to erase imperfections and Balancing Act to banish shine but still leave the girls looking fresh-faced. Our Lip Gloss Sticks were perfect for last-minute touchups because they provided just the right amount of sheer color and shine in one convenient jumbo pencil. Of course no swimsuit shoot would be complete without our famous Mineral Glow bronzer and waterproof Eye Defining Pencils. We had to keep those girls looking hot—not melted!
When we last saw our hero, she had prepped and perfected her complexion—all thanks to Pür’s famed 4-in-1 products and skin-correcting primers. This week, prestige beauty manager Christina Stevens completes the look in our epic final conclusion.
