The course of true love never did run smooth...

Alima Pure’s Midsummer Night’s Dream collection is inspired by one of Shakespeare’s most accessible and best-loved comedies. Featuring love potions, mischievous fairies and star-crossed lovers, the play is filled with beautiful Elizabethan-era imagery. With these four colors, you can create a look worthy of the Queen of Fairies or an eloping noble’s daughter.

  • Helena is a romantic, medium pink with a pearly finish.
  • Hermia is a bright, shimmering lilac.
  • Titania is a lush, pearly gold.
  • Oberon is a regal bronze shimmer.

Queen of the Fairies look

Apply Titania from lashes to brow. Add Oberon in the crease and outer corner, and apply with a damp brush to upper lash line.

Sweep a bit of Luminous Shimmer Blush in Sahara on cheekbones. Slick Fig Nourishing Lip Balm on lips.

Lovelorn look

Apply Helena from lashes to brows and Hermia in the crease and outer corner. Line the upper lashes with Oberon and the lower lashes with Titania.

Apply Satin Matte Blush in Pink to the apples of the cheeks, and finish with Rhubarb Nourishing Lip Balm.

The Midsummer Night’s Dream collection is available for a limited time for $30, with $2 from each purchase going to the Global Fund for Women.

(The headline, "The course of true love never did run smooth" is a quote from A Midsummer Night's Dream, spoken by the character Lysander to his love, Hermia. If you have never read the play, we highly recommend you read it on a balmy summer evening!)

Hello!
Your collections always look very nice.
But it could be great to show us how to use it, how to combine colors. Actually i can say it about all your eye shadows: why not to show us different ways of blending colors? Just as inspiration for alima-lovers) You can just post sometimes shadows (or eyeliners) application tips to make me happy!) Thank you!
