Perfectly polished with just six products

Posted on May 17, 2011 by Shopify API | 2 Comments

To illustrate how few products you need to use to create a perfectly polished everyday look, we sat down one of our Order Processing Experts, Theresa in the makeup chair.

Theresa wears Beige 5 foundation, so we applied a sheer layer, with another layer just in the areas she needed a little extra coverage.

For blush, we used Soft Plum Satin Matte Blush on the apples of her cheeks, and blended it back towards her hairline.

Theresa has gorgeous eyes, so we wanted to use a nice light color with some sparkle to draw attention to them. We applied Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow in Paris with a damp #37 brush, from lashes to brow. To contour, we used Satin Matte Eyeshadow in Lilac in the crease and outer corner, applied with a #39 brush. Since this was an everyday look, we opted to use the shadow dry so it wouldn’t be overly dramatic or colorful. We finished with Satin Matte Eyeliner in Black, applied damp with the #33 Angle Liner brush.

To complete the look, Theresa slicked on some of our new Organic Nourishing Lip Balm in Fig. Gorgeous!

I just learned about Alima through a newspaper article and I can’t wait to try your products!

The 6 product post was great to read; I do believe less is more. I think you accomplished a beautiful look and it’s nice to hear a company advocating for people to use less or just what they need.

We have an eye brush collection available right now, our Goddess Collection. As far as a set for face and eyes, we might look at those for holiday, but we have no immediate plans.
