Pur Cosmetics Festival Palette Tutorial

Happy Wednesday, y’all! I took a little break from blogging and social media since last Thursday. My husband and I went on a little vacay to Disney World over the weekend. Aside from all the excitement and just not having time to do any blogging, it’s healthy to take a break every now and then. Even though social media is basically my job, I’m such an in the moment kind of person and almost never think to pull out my phone. In today’s society, that’s a quality I hope to never lose! But now I’m back and I’m kicking things off again with a tutorial featuring the Pür Cosmetics Festival eyeshadow palette.

Priming the eyes is always the first step, and for this look I’m using the Milani eyeshadow primer. This is a great option for every day because it’s completely nude. It doesn’t have any shimmer or color undertones to alter the shade of the eyeshadows applied on top. It’s also one of the best options if you have extremely oily eyelids, like me!
Going straight into the palette, I’m taking the shade called Epic and blending that all over my crease area with a fluffy blending brush. This is a beautiful warm tan and it’s packed with pigment, so this isn’t one you’ll have to spend a lot of time building up.
Because I can never make up my mind, I decided to combine the shades Hidden Desert and Sunset. Hidden Desert is a slightly deeper matte warm brown, whereas Sunset is a little lighter and has a glitter/satin finish. The formula of these can be slightly difficult to blend, so I prefer to pack them into the crease and outer corner area with a dense brush. Once I have the color placed where I want it, I go in with a separate, empty loose-bristled blending brush to clean it up.
Going back into that first shade called Epic, I’m placing that right at the edge of where the other colors stop in the crease and brow bone area. This will help to soften the look even more and add some extra dimension between the shades.
For the eyelid, I went with the brightest shimmer shade in the palette called Free Spirit. This is a more dry shimmer formula than what I’m used to with Pür Cosmetics, but it’s still very bright and pigmented. I applied this shade using the Luxie #209 Large Shader brush that was included in last month’s Boxycharm, along with this palette and other products featured in this tutorial.
This palette doesn’t include a matte highlighting shade, so I reached for Ulta’s Naked single eyeshadow -- my favorite! I applied this to my brow bone with that same large shader brush and switched to a smaller smudge brush for my inner corner. This will help to brighten the whites of the eyes and lift the brows.
The eyeshadows would’ve been perfectly fine leaving it at this, but I decided to add in a little bit of the Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in the shade Summer Haze since it was another Boxycharm product. This powder is extremely messy, so I lightly tapped my finger in the product and patted it right on the center of my lid. I do think it added a little something, but it’s not completely necessary.
Moving on to eyeliner, I’m taking the darkest matte brown eyeshadow in the palette called All Night and placing that right at the lash line with an angled eyeliner brush. This eyeshadow is pigmented enough to do the job, but if you wanted to make it more intense or extend its wear time you could place a pencil liner underneath as a base.
Finishing up by curling the lashes and adding three coats of my favorite mascara ever -- Benefit’s Roller Lash. Depending on how dark you made the outer corner shades and eyeliner, this is a look that would pair nicely with some falsies if that’s what you prefer.
Here’s a close-up of the final look:
And a quick, more condensed guide recapping every step for easy reference:
The only other product I used from my Boxycharm to finish this look is the Appeal Cosmetics holographic lip gloss. I layered it over my favorite Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip in the shade Really Rose. I love the way this lip combo pairs with a warm eyeshadow look!
As much as I wanted to feature the pressed glitters in the palette, they’re (unfortunately) a complete waste. The texture is disgusting and they’re almost impossible to work with. If you like color, this palette definitely has a few options with the pink and purple. I don’t ever see myself using those, though, so I wanted to focus this look on how such a colorful palette could also provide something more wearable for every day.
