As women on-the-go, we often talk about multitasking makeup. We love when we can use use our foundation as a concealer or our eye shadow as a highlighter—the list goes on. So, when the
Pure & Simple Makeup Kit was released, we were very excited. It’s the ultimate makeup kit for women with a busy schedule, and it’s also a great gift for your friends who haven’t tried our products.
ABOUT THE PURE & SIMPLE MAKEUP KIT
Before we continue gushing about the Pure & Simple Makeup Kit, here’s a rundown of all of the products included in the palette.
So, why do we love this kit? It’s simple—or, pure and simple, if you will—we love it because it’s all you need to create an entire makeup look. Put this palette in your bag with a couple of your favorite brushes and a Hydration Spray, and you’re ready for anything. You could take it when you go backpacking around the country, or if you’re like us, you’ll put one in your weekender bag for trips to visit the family.
GETTING THE PURE & SIMPLE LOOK
There are plenty of ways to create a natural makeup look with this kit, so we tapped our Global Makeup Educators to show you how to get four different looks, which are beautiful for any age.
The wonderful part about the products included in the Pure & Simple Makeup Kit is all of them can be used in multiple ways.
By itself, PurePressed Base is a multitasking miracle worker. It’s a semi-matte foundation that contains broad spectrum SPF protection, and can be used as a concealer and setting powder. Plus, it’s packed with ingredients that have skincare benefits, like Pomegranate Extract that helps fight free-radical production and protect your skin. In the Pure & Simple Makeup Kit, we included two shades of PurePressed Base. Here’s why:
We also had our reasons for including Oyster and Supernova PurePressed Eye Shadow. The first is, both shades are universally flattering. They also pair well together for a soft, yet defined eye makeup look, and they can easily double as other products.
You can use Oyster, the shimmery pearl shade, as a highlighter on your cheekbones, brow bones and your cupid’s bow. Any place you want a little extra glow, this eye shadow can be applied.
Supernova is a shimmery copper, eggplant shade, we recommend using it as the contour shade in your eye makeup look. Additionally, you can use it as an eyeliner if you wet the sponge applicator (or an Angle Liner/Brow Brush).
DOUBLE THE BLUSHES, DOUBLE THE FUN
The Pure & Simple Makeup Kit only contains one PurePressed Blush shade, but the Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain allows you to double up on your cheek color. This little lip product is a friend favorite for good reason. It uses your skin’s pH to develop a shade of peach (Forever Peach) or pink (Forever Pink) that is unique to you, and it lasts all day!
When we want to add subtle color to our cheeks, we use either PurePressed Blush or Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain, but when we want our cheekbones to pop, here’s how we do it:
