Last Tuesday, Alima Pure was honored to host two visitors from the International Visitors Leadership Program (IVLP), in partnership with the World Affairs Council of Oregon, at our office headquarters in SE Portland. The visitors were members of the African Women’s Entrepreneurship Program (AWEP), which aims to enhance professional partnerships to link capital, business development and market access among female entrepreneurs worldwide.
If you haven’t read the first blog article on how to find your mineral foundation, start there. Once you have sorted out your skin tone, it’s just one more easy step to finding your ideal foundation color. At Alima Pure, our foundations fall into six foundation shade ranges, each with its own unique mix of pink, yellow and green pigments, to blend flawlessly with your skin.
The latest installment of our 3 for $30 Eyeshadow Collections are now available, and they are just right for gift-giving on a budget. Do you have a flower-lover on your list? What about someone who craves coffee? Or someone stricken with the urge to travel the globe? Let your gift of mineral makeup illustrate that you know what is close to their heart!
Flower Bouquet is a collection of three of our floral named shadows. Soft pink, matte Daphne pairs beautifully with the sweet blue-purple tones of Pearluster Viola. Finish the look with the nearly-black Satin Matte Eyeliner in Black Violet. This collection is stunning on both green and brown eyes!
Coffee Break combines the beautiful peachy tones of Luminous Shimmer Chai with the deeper bronze of Pearluster Cappuccino. Satin Matte Eyeliner in Espresso, always a favorite, completes the look. Great on eyes of any color, this trio is especially gorgeous with blue eyes.
Exotic Getaway gives a girl glamorous options! These three Luminous Shimmer Shadows can be worn in pairings, or all three at once. Apply Paris all over the eye area, then choose from Milan or Martinique for the crease, and to use damp as a liner. Don't limit yourself to just one, use Milan in the crease and line with Martinique or vice-versa. Because this collection includes neutrals and a purple-ish toned shadow, it is perfect for any eye color!
If you have ever wished that there were an easy way to introduce someone that you care about to Alima Pure cosmetics, we have just the thing for you! We know buying a foundation for a loved one can be a tricky proposition, but who doesn't love to receive a gift of color? With three of our best-selling shades in three of our customer-favorite products, we think these sets will make it easy to convince your friends and family to ditch the chemical-filled products and join you in appreciating the beauty of natural makeup!
The Natural Beauty Warm set includes our popular Satin Matte Blush in Carnation, an earthy pink; Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow in Chai, a constant best-seller; and Organic Nourishing Lipbalm in Mango, a warm pink that brings brightness to a wintertime palette.
The Natural Beauty Cool set includes best-selling Satin Matte Blush in Antique Rose, a soft red that works for almost everyone; Pearluster Eyeshadow in Taupe, a soft neutral that creates a polished look; and Organic Nourishing Lipbalm in Fig, a bronzed plum that won't overpower your lips.
Individually, the products in these sets would retail for $39.50, but through the holidays they are value priced at only $30 each. But best of all, these sets are a perfect to prove to skeptics that natural cosmetics can be gorgeous!
When you look up the phrase "joie de vivre" in your French-American dictionary, we're just about certain you will find a picture of this months Naturally Gorgeous model, Mary, there alongside the definition. Mary is passionate about life and experiences, and has a serious case of wanderlust! She's equally comfortable hiking up a steep incline, trying a new way of wearing her makeup or moving halfway around the world! Whether you need a partner-in-crime for a night on the town, or someone to help you clean out your closet, Mary is the sort of friend you'd want to have on speed-dial!
Back in May, I had the opportunity to work as the makeup artist on an amazing project. Joni Kabana, an award-winning visual artist and photojournalist, and the woman behind the camera on our Naturally Gorgeous model shoots, was going to be shooting a calendar for a local yoga studio, and needed makeup for the models. Being familiar with my work, and the way that Alima Pure photographs, Joni asked if I would come and help out. The project, she explained, was to spread the word about a series of classes at The Yoga Project, a studio in the Sellwood area of Portland, called “Yoga for The Larger Woman.”
