I am a “plain jane” kind of girl most of the time. I haven’t bothered with makeup very much, and when I did I often bought the cheapest stuff I could find at the drug store. However, in the last year I have really noticed changes in my skin and my appearance. I’m starting to look my age, and that does not make me happy. I will be 40 in 388 days (yes, I’m counting) and I don’t intend to look it. I picked up some new makeup a few months ago, and thankfully it was the cheap stuff because my kids thought it was great, especially when mixed with water, and once again I had no makeup.

So, I was happy to try out Pür Minerals and once again try to cover my wrinkles and uneven skin. I have never used this type of makeup, and had to watch the video (below) to know how to apply it. It is so quick and easy to apply, and I don’t feel like I’m sitting under an inch of paint when it’s on. You can see for yourself the difference it makes…

Now that I see just how bad I look without makeup, I will be using my Pür Minerals every day! I followed the directions from the video below, and it took me about 5 minutes to go from the before to the after look. I did add a little eyeliner, mascara and lip gloss along with the Pür Minerals, but the powder alone covered my dark circles under my eyes, the pimple on my nose (I had no pimples as a teenager, but in my thirties…yes, lots) and my uneven skin tones.

This is the kit that I used…
