Bella is no stranger to rocking effortless glam makeup looks, so create a look that emphasizes and enhances the natural beauty of your complexion without the excess oils that leave skin feeling like a sweaty mess!

According to Oquendo, “The key thing about mastering a “no makeup” look is not that there’s actually no makeup, but that it’s done masterfully with precision. It’s all about a balance,” he said in a W Magazine article. “For every glowy product, you have a matte product to balance it out”

This full face beauty regimen is summer-proof with longwear makeup capabilities, skincare-infused formulas and radiance-boosting skincare ingredients that create a natural, lit-from-within finish.

Everything You Need to Know About Identifying Your Undertone

We’ve all been there –

Perusing the aisles of our favorite beauty store trying to locate the perfect foundation shade. Whether you’re looking for an everyday staple or shopping for a major event, it’s no secret that foundation sets the tone for a flawless makeup look. Thirty minutes and ten arm swatches later and you’re struggling to find the perfect shade. Whether it’s too light/dark, gives skin a gray cast or makes the complexion look muddy, foundations, if not in the proper shade, can leave behind a less-than-favorable base. Luckily, learning how to identify your undertone could be the secret to finding your perfect match!

While it’s easy to decipher which skin tone, or surface skin tone category, you’re a part of, selecting an undertone can be quite the task. Undertones refer to the subtle hue underneath the surface. For years, makeup artists and skincare professionals have gone by three universal undertone categories: pink (cool), golden (warm) and neutral (a mix). And while your surface color may shift throughout the year, the undertone will always remain the same.

Meet the Undertones

  • Pink
    Pink, or cool, undertones often display hints of red or blue.
    Perfect Pairing: If you have pink undertones, try the following shades of our 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation: Light, Blush Medium, Medium Tan, Deep
  • Golden
    Golden, or warm, undertones often display hints of yellow or peach.
    Perfect Pairing: If you have golden undertones, try the following shades of our 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation: Porcelain, Golden Medium, Light Tan, Tan, Medium Dark, Golden Dark, Deeper
  • Neutral
    Neutral undertones display characteristics of both pink and golden undertones.
    Perfect Pairing: If you have neutral undertones, try the following shades of our 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation: Porcelain, Light, Golden Medium, Light Tan, Tan, Medium Tan, Medium Dark, Deeper

Identifying Your Undertones

  • Vein Test:Taking a look at your veins is a great way to indicate what color undertones you have. Golden undertones often have veins that appear green or olive, while pink undertones often have veins that appear blue or purple. If you have neutral undertones, it’s common to have veins that appear blue-green.
  • Sun Test : While we always recommend that PUR beauties load up on the SPF, your skin’s natural reaction to sun can help determine your undertone. For example, if you burn easily without achieving a tan, it is likely that you have pink, or cool, undertones. However, people with golden undertones often tan fairly easily. Lastly, if you burn and it eventually leads to a tan, you likely have neutral undertones.
  • Jewelry Test: Observing your skin using jewelry and metals can help you determine your undertones. Keeping with the name, golden undertones look amazing in gold or earth-toned jewelry. While cool, or pink undertones look best in silver or white metal. If both gold and silver metals compliment your complexion, you likely have neutral undertones.

PRO Tip: When testing a new foundation, apply the shade to your jawline and wait a few minutes to access how the formula reacts to your complexion. To ensure a perfect match, observe in different lighting. 

Behind PUR’s New Out of the Blue Collection

If you’ve perused around your local ULTA or visited PUR’s Instagram account, you might’ve seen the new Out of the Blue Collection featuring innovative, light up components and a unique ingredient twist that’s perfect for tech and makeup lovers alike. It’s no secret that living in a digital age filled with tech devices, like smartphones, tablets, computers and televisions has drastically changed our everyday lives. But, how does this influx of blue light exposure impact our complexion?

We’ll explain.

Blue light is part of the visible light spectrum and studies have shown that it can have damaging effects on the skin. As it penetrates deep into the skin, high energy visible blue light can cause oxidative stress, which could lead to visible signs of aging.

We took to Tisha Thompson, PUR’s Vice President of Marketing and Innovation, to get a behind the scenes look at building the Out of the Blue Collection. From highly pigmented complexion products, nourishing lip enhancers, eye-catching eyeshadows and a gorgeous mascara, this one-of-a-kind collection was formulated with blue light defense for a healthier-looking complexion.

Q: How did this collection come about? Were you inspired by any new research in particular or trends in the skincare industry? What gave you the AH-HA moment to create Out of the Blue?
A:
As a skincare-focused cosmetics brand, we are always looking for ways to create beauty products that not only help cover skin imperfections, but also help correct its overall appearance. With emerging tech usage trends and an ear to the skincare industry, we knew there was a need to build a collection catered towards blue light defense. We’ve seen it done in skincare products, but never in color, so this was our opportunity to do so.

Q: What does Out of the Blue mean?
Tisha:
With this collection, we wanted PUR Beauties to breathe easy knowing that this collection is formulated to help them enjoy their lifestyle (and appearance) with skincare-infused products. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your lifestyle to achieve overall skin health, so Out of the Blue simply means keeping skin protected from the damaging effects of high energy visible blue light, while enjoying the PUR formulas you know and love.

Q: What inspired the packaging?
Tisha:
The packaging found in this Out of the Blue Collection was the most exciting part for me during the product development phase. I had a really cool idea to add vanity lights to the components for on-the-go makeup application. After months of working with suppliers and our internal team, we created a super luxurious range of components that make it easy—and fun—to touch up your makeup wherever you are. From the lip products to our cult-favorite Fully Charged Mascara and fold out vanity eyeshadow palette, this added feature makes these products a must-have in your collection.

Q: What’s your favorite product in the collection?
A:
The Out of the Blue Light Up Vanity Eyeshadow Palette is my favorite because it has the perfect mix of matte and shimmer eyeshadow shades. It’s versatile enough to transition your look from everyday to super glam and the vanity component makes it the perfect palette to travel with. We worked heavily on the formulas to ensure they have the buildable and blendable qualities that PUR Beauties love from other products.

Q: What “blue light” device are you guilty of being on the most?
A:
As a working mom that’s constantly on-the-go, I am guilty of being on my iPhone all the time. From emails, calls, social media and virtual meetings, it can be a lot. I make sure to incorporate this Out of the Blue collection into my daily routine so that I don’t have to worry about the visible signs of aging induced by high energy visible blue light.

Out of the Blue is available for purchase at purcosmetics.com and in-store and online at ULTA.com.

Perfect Pairings—Out of the Blue Collection

Technology has integrated itself into our daily routine, just as sure as our morning cup of coffee or our commute to work. The convenience of instantly ordering those cute shoes you saw on social media, listening to your favorite songs, and organizing your life right in the palm of our hands, comes with logging some serious screen time.

According to a study done in 2018 by global tech protection & support company Asurion, the average person checks their phone 80 times a day, with 1 in 10 checking their phone every 4 minutes. Millennials report even higher rates of looking at their screen, an average of up to 150 times per day. Each time we check our phones, answer an email at our desktop, or binge-watch our favorite TV show, high energy visible blue light is emitted from our devices. Blue light penetrates our skin in layers deeper than what UVB rays can, causing visible signs of aging. Most of us can’t even think about standing in the sun for 6 hours without any SPF protection on, because we know the damage it can do. Our technological sidekicks aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, so it’s time to get smart about shielding ourselves from aging caused by high energy visible blue light.

PÜR’s brand new collection, Out of the Blue, features makeup and skincare that’s as smart as it is beautiful. Each item contains the proprietary Blue Light Defense complex to protect the skin from damage caused by high energy visible blue light. Xanthophyll & Lycopene (naturally-occurring, plant-based yellow & orange light-filtering pigments) and Rice Germ Oil (skin strengthening & conditioning lipid) create reservoirs in the skin to shield itself when exposed to high energy visible blue light.

Here’s a breakdown of how you can fit these sleek beauties into your routine— the cruelty, paraben, and gluten free way:

4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup + Out of the Blue Light Up Vanity Blush Palette

The cult-favorite 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup has made millions of women rethink powder- and so will this blush. Featured in two universally flattering color combinations, each light up compact provides 2 shades of blush, and 1 luminous highlight. Ceramides, Lactic Acid, and time-released Retinol (Pur’s exclusive Ceratin Complex) give a buttery, cream-like feel to these powders, and improve texture and firmness of the skin over time. After using our Chisel Brush to achieve your desired coverage with 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup, try using the deeper shades of blush on your temples, and applying the lighter shade on the apples of your cheeks for a softly contoured effect. Top off with a serving of glow with the highlight shades, or simply swirl all 3 shades together for an effortlessly luminous look.

What is blue light?
While you may have heard the term “blue light” thrown around in the media, understanding what it is and how it affects the skin may be confusing. Blue light is part of the visible light spectrum, which makes up only a fraction of the electromagnetic spectrum. Confused? Don’t be! Visible light is the only electromagnetic radiation that is visible to our eyes and high energy visible blue light refers to the shortest, highest energy wavelengths of the visible spectrum. It comes from both natural (sunlight) and artificial sources, like tech devices. In recent years, evolving research and new revelations have confirmed that blue light actually penetrates deeper into the skin, which may lead to premature aging.

Meet the Collection
