Behind the Brush
by guest blogger Tamra Compton
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!

Tips & How-Tos
On a recent trip to my favorite hair salon, Azar Salon in Atlanta, owner Michael Azar helped me finally find the answer I needed to the burning question: which is better, gloss or glaze?
Q: My natural red hair looks dull and is starting to show a few gray streaks. I’d like to try a gloss or a glaze, but what’s the difference?
A: A gloss adds shine, adjusts the tone and lasts two to four weeks. A glaze coats the shaft with shine and semi-permanent color.
My choice: I went with a semi-permanent glaze that looks super natural, covers the gray and gives me healthy shine. Love it!

Tips & How-Tos
Need to transform yourself into a bronzed beauty in a flash but don’t know where to start? I am obsessing over the look I created this week by simply mixing two parts of my all-time favorite moisturizer, Palmer’s Cocoa Butter, with one part Pür Minerals Eternal Summer Body Bronzer. Apply to the skin as you would any lotion, and in a flash you’ve got a streak-free glow, complete with subtly shimmering copper and gold undertones. It’s a super simple way to step into summer with confidence!
