A Virtual Spring Bouquet

Posted on May 05, 2009 by kate | 0 Comments

Spring Bouquet

Alima has a garden-full of floral-named shades, and every one of them is beautiful and appropriate for spring.  For cheeks, choose Rosa Luminous Shimmer Blush.  If you prefer a matte look, Satin Matte Blushes come in Apple Blossom, Carnation, Geranium, Mimosa and the roses…Antique Rose, Honey Rose and Desert Rose.

For eyes, you can choose from Black Orchid and Hellebore Luminous Shimmer shadows; Camellia, Daphne and Lilac Satin Matte shadows; and Viola Pearluster shadow.

To create a spring bouquet, apply Daphne as a base, with Hellebore on the lid.  Contour with Lilac, and use it damp to line.  For fair skins, sweep Tulip blush over the entire cheek area, and apply a touch of Rosa on the apples of the cheeks.  For deeper skins, apply Carnation on the entire cheek area and add a touch of Antique Rose or Geranium for brightness.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Alima Pure Mother's Day Collection

Introducing the 2009 Goddess Collection

At Alima, we firmly believe that every mother (and every daughter) is a goddess.  So to celebrate Mother’s Day, we have created three new goddess-worthy shades, perfect for gifting or keeping.

  • Athena – the Greek goddess of wisdom, represented here by a sparkling peach.  What could be more wise than that?
  • Calypso – the beautiful Greek sea nymph that enthralled Odysseus is interpreted as a soft and wearable blue with a healthy dose of golden shimmer.
  • Hera – Greek goddess of marriage and queen of the deities, lends her name to a stunning and shimmering pinked coral blush.  We tried this blush on women of different skintones, and it looked different, but amazing, on each one of them.

To wear the Goddess Collection, apply Athena from lashes to brows.  Depending on eye shape, apply Calypso to the lid or in the crease and outer 1/3 of lid.  Blend, but be aware that the more you blend, the less blue you will see.  Add a touch of Black or Koan liner.  Sweep Hera on the cheeks and apply Mango Nourishing Lip Balm
