Pür Cosmetics Eyeshadow Tutorial
I hope you enjoyed Wednesday’s review post on the Pür Cosmetics Glitz and Glam palettes. I really wish there was a way you could feel the texture of these, they’re so amazing! Even more creamy and buttery to the touch than my Makeup Geek shadows that I’m always raving about. I have seen these palettes, especially the Day Dream Eye palette, for sale online. So I figured it’d be fun to show you one of the looks I like to create with it. This is mostly an all matte eyeshadow look that’s very easy and very simple. Let’s get started!
Beginning with primer, I’m using my favorite one from Milani Cosmetics. This one is amazing if you have oily eyelids! However, it can get a little too tacky sometimes so you’re gonna want to set it with a base shade before we start applying colors. I’m using Hope from the palette on a very fluffy eyeshadow brush, making sure not to apply too much. We just need a light sweep of this powder to help the other colors blend more easily.
I’m taking quite a bit of Whisper on a Morphe MB23 brush and applying that carelessly into my crease and outer corner of the eye. This shade isn’t very pigmented, so you don’t have to worry about going overboard with it. This is just to create some dimension between the shades and keep things looking blended.
I’m taking Desire on a more dense blending brush from the Sephora Professional Collection and only placing that on the outer corner on my eye. I’ll bring whatever’s left on the brush into the crease, but not much. I also don’t want to go too far in on the lid with this shade because I’m aiming for a very light and effortless look that’s not too dark.
On that same blending brush, I’m applying Allure halfway in my crease. This is why I didn’t want too much of Desire going there. I still wanted some dimension between the shades, keeping the purple on the outer corner and the more pink shade in the crease. Since I’m aiming for a more light look, I don’t want to take Allure all the way to the inner corner of my crease. That will make things look a little too dark and will close off my eyes, making them appear smaller.
This would also be a good time to mention that I always clean my brush off on a towel in between each use. Doing so will keep my brushes clean longer and remove any excess color that is still left on the brush. And as always, I alternate between my more fluffy Sonia Kashuk blending brush after each step to prevent harsh lines.
Moving on to the lower lash line, I’m using a mixture of both Allure and Desire on a small pencil brush. Although I am trying to focus most of the color as close to the lash line as I can, I am also taking it a little lower than usual since we’ll be skipping eyeliner. Bringing the color under the lower lashes keeps things from looking too top heavy on the upper lid.
For the inner half of the eye, I’m using Charm and applying that with my finger first. Applying it with my finger will give me a more intense and pigmented result. Then I go back and clean up the lines with a small fluffy eyeshadow brush. The one I’m using in this tutorial is a Morphe M153, which is very similar but just a bit bigger than the BH Cosmetics one I always feature. This shadow is very pigmented, but be careful blending it in the crease because it can mix easily with the darker colors and fade away.
To brighten the inner corner, I’m using Hope on a small smudge brush also from the Sephora Professional Collection. Usually when I have matte shades all over the lid, I like to use a shimmery inner corner highlight. But I like the dimension between these two shades. This one is also very pigmented and is great for highlighting underneath the brow, which is what I did with a Morphe M208 brush.
Since this is such an effortless and light look, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend pairing falsies with it. But you can always load up on a ton of mascara, as per my usual routine. I’m still loving Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara, but I can tell that this travel size is getting pretty dry already and it’s messing with the formula so it’s about time to toss it. I’m gonna miss it in my rotation as I work through my backstock of mascaras I have piling up.
Here’s a close up of the final look:
And a quick reference guide recapping every step we just did:
I am so beyond happy with the way this look turned out and am still in complete disbelief at how amazing these eyeshadows are. Every time I swatch them, it feels like butter and looks like paint. I cannot believe it and definitely want to look more into what this brand has to offer. In the final picture below, I paired this look with the Tarte blush and lip paint duo that I received as my Sephora birthday gift this year. The blush shade is Paaarty and the lip is Birthday Suit. Such a perfect combo!
