Not only are your eyes the window to the soul, but they’re also your key to choosing the right eye shadows. Choosing the right eye shadow shades can be tricky, but the color of your eyes can help you determine which hues are right for you. The goal is to choose a colour palette that complements your eyes without blending in or contrasting too much. Here are a few tips from Pür Minerals on how to create a beautiful, bright-eyed look that suits your eye color.

How did you find out about Pür Minerals?
One day, while I was checking my e-mail an advertisement came up about Pür Minerals. I have a mild case of rosacea and was always looking for something to cover it. After reading all of the advertisement, I knew right then I had to try it. I am so glad I ordered that day because it was an answer to covering my blemishes.
What is your favorite Pür Minerals product and why?
My favorite is Pür Minerals Colour Correcting Primer in Green. It tones down the redness and discoloration of my skin. Plus, it keeps my face soft all day and holds in the moisture that my skin needs. After applying the primer, I put on the convenient 4 in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup SPF15 which gives me more protection from the sun. The Mineral Shea Butter Lipstick and Pout Plumping Lip Gloss condition my lips and are filled with hydration. I also love the kits because they are put together for what your skin needs and don’t contain harmful chemicals.
What do you see as the chief benefits of Pür Mineral products?
Quality, Convenience, Protection and Hydration. It is great for sensitive skin and covers so well. It feels like a feather, so light like you are not wearing makeup. My face has a Mineral Glow! My friends and family have noticed a difference. Pür Minerals is not time consuming, but I love playing with the eye shadow and the lipsticks. Their colors are so rich and so easy to apply. The Mineral Brow Perfection is just that—perfection. It doesn’t look like it has been drawn on, it is more natural looking. The Mineral Blush brings out the softness on your cheeks and brings it all together. I have felt so much better knowing my skin is so healthy and feels smooth and alive. Pür Minerals is a wonderful product line and the answer for becoming self-confident and beautiful.
How does Pür Minerals differ from other makeup and skin care brands?
First of all, Pür Minerals is compacted, not loose powder that can be spilled everywhere or like the liquid makeup which looks cakey and feels heavy. I love the clean, tingly feeling from the Pür Polish exfoliator and Revitalizing Facial Wash. The Skin Perfecting Serum gives me a healthy glow. The price is affordable and I like that it is not tested on animals. My skin feels renewed and healthy. It’s just a wonderful product with great results. After using the BEST, I would never go back to liquid makeup or any other makeup that makes you feel MADE UP!

For me, the start of spring brings to mind three things: warm weather, longer days and gold eye shadow. As a gilded lid enthusiast, I love the way this ultra-wearable beauty trend awakens the complexion and looks great on all skin tones. This season, turn to eye shadow shades of champagne, golden yellow and deep bronze for a sophisticated, up-to-the-minute spring look.
A Softer Smoky Eye
Just because winter is over doesn’t mean you have to ditch your favorite smoky eye look. Swap those darker hues of onyx and charcoal with rich gold and bronze shadows for a softer take on the classic smoky eye. Lighter, brighter shades of gold eye shadow are more versatile and wearable—perfect for the office or an evening out.
How to Apply Gold Eye Shadow
1. Start by creating a base with an eye primer, such as Mineral Eye Prep by Pür Minerals, to ensure flawless eye shadow application with a long-lasting look.
2. Next, use an Eye Shadow Brush to sweep a pale, shimmering yellow or taupe shade over the entire lid up to the brow bone. Pür Pick: Pressed Mineral Shadow in NEW Sunlit Gypsum
3. To create more depth and dimension, use a Crease Brush to blend a deeper, gold shade into the crease of the eye and work toward the outer corners. Pür Pick: Gold Dust Shadow
4. Follow with a lighter, sparkling gold or champagne to add highlights. Dab a tiny bit of the shadow onto the inner corners of your eye and just under the brow bone. Pür Pick: Pressed Mineral Shadow in Champagne Citrine
5. Add definition by applying a gel liner (brown shades work best with this look) to the lash line. Start at the inner corner of the eye and work your way outward with short strokes. Lightly smudge the colour to create a blended, smoky effect. Pür Pick: Pür Intensity gel eyeliner in Coffee Quartz
6. Finish the look by applying a coat of Triple Impact Mascara to lengthen, thicken and curl your lashes.

While most of us are aware of the internal benefits of dietary vitamins, the external benefits on the skin are just as dramatic and well-documented. More than just a beautiful surface, our skin is a reflection of our overall health. As a result, when the body is poorly nourished, the skin often suffers. By supplementing the skin’s specific nutritional needs, we can better account for the dietary deficits that can compromise our complexions. Here are a few things that every skin needs for a healthy radiance:
