The highly anticipated film Beautiful Creatures will be hitting theatres on February 14 and my very favourite cosmetics company, Pur Minerals, is celebrating with a gorgeous special edition set inspired by the movie. I recently received the Pur Minerals Beautiful Creatures Collection to review and I couldn’t wait to use it to create some fun new looks.
The set contains eight spellbinding eye shadow shades ranging from innocently light choices to captivating dark colours, Lust lip gloss and Black Magic eyeliner. I decided to check out the Pur Minerals Beautiful Creatures website and create a look based on one of the characters from the movie.
My eyes tend to look best with dramatic makeup so I followed the instructions for creating the dark look inspired by Ridley from Beautiful Creatures. With just three easily applied eye shadow shades, Secret, Supernatural and Fantasy, I had a mesmerizing dark eye that added instant drama to my look. Eyeliner, mascara and a swipe of sweet pink-tinted lip gloss finished the look.
This look is perfect for date night or a special event and while it is a dramatic look, it’s also incredibly wearable for an evening outing. I especially liked the way the Supernatural eye shadow, a pale cream colour, lightened the look to make it soft and subtle instead of severe. In fact, to ensure that my eyes had a wide-open look, I dabbed a bit of Supernatural shadow in the inner corners of my eyes too. This is a great easy trick for making sure that a dark, dramatic eye still looks fresh.
Pur Minerals has a tutorial for both this look and a light look inspired by Lena from Beautiful Creatures available on the website and if you’re dying to recreate one of these looks yourself, you’re in luck! Pur Minerals is hosting an incredible group giveaway and one lucky winner across all participating blogs will receive a $100 Pur Minerals gift certificate and the Pur Minerals Beautiful Creatures Collection! Even better, five secondary winners will receive $25 Pur Minerals gift certificates too.
