Dare to mix Cold and Warm

Posted on December 15, 2011 by terresa | 0 Comments

Dare to Mix Warm and Cold You have probably been told that when you apply your makeup, you need to pick either warm or cool colors and stick to them for your entire face. While that isn't bad advice, there are exceptions to the rule, and conveniently, our Cold Outside and Warm Inside collections contain some of the very best shades with which to break the rules!

Justine is wearing shades from both Cold Outside and Warm Inside. We started with her Beige 4 foundation. We brushed Rosy Cheeks form the Cold Outside collection on the apples of her cheeks.

On her eyes, we applied Candlelight from the Warm Inside Collection from lashes to brows. On her lids, we applied Mulled Cider, also from Warm Inside. Then we used a damp #33 Angle Liner Brush to line her upper lid with Jack Frost from Cold Outside, winging the liner at the outer corner just a bit.  When you are thinking of mixing warms and cools, remember that golden shades look especially beautiful with blues and purples.

We finished the look with a light dusting of shimmer powder Fire Light from Warm Inside on the tops of her cheekbones, and shined her lips with Organic Nourishing Lipbalm in Mango. Who knew breaking rules could be so pretty?

Stuff a stocking in a snap!

You've probably whittled down your holiday shopping by this point, and maybe you're stuck where many of us at Alima Pure are...the teachers, the co-workers, the cousins, the "I should have something handy in case so-and-so forgot were weren't going to exchange gifts this year." We think we have the perfect solution--our Under the Mistletoe Collection!


This handy set of three of our Organic Nourishing Lipbalms comes packaged in our signature Alima Pure bag, all you really need to add is a ribbon and gift tag. And the shades cover a wide range, so they will work for most everyone!

Acai is our palest, shimmery pink - perfect for when you just want a hint of color, but a lot of moisture.

Rhubarb is a medium pink with no shimmer - on fair skins it really shows up, on medium and deeper skin tones, it provides a subtle, warm pink.

Fig is a deeper, bronzed plum shimmer - in all honesty, we have never found anyone that can't wear it.

This perfect little set is available now through late December for only $16, and is a $28 value.

It's so cozy and Warm Inside

Posted on November 23, 2011 by terresa | 1 Comment

You've seen Cold Outside on a real person, and now here is Warm Inside on Jessica!

We started with her foundation, Beige 2.  Then we applied Candlelight from her lashes to her brows and Mulled Cider on her lids.  We brushed Hot Toddy into the crease, and concentrated a little bit at the outer corner of her eye, then applied it with a damp #33 brush along her upper lashes.  A touch of Satin Matte Eyeshadow in Raven filled in her brows.

We swept Firelight Luminous Shimmer Powder  along the tops of Jessica's cheekbones with the #23 Kitten Brush, and dusted what remained on the brush across her forehead.  We added a touch of Satin Matte Blush in Pink to the apples of her cheeks, and finished the look with a sheer layer of Organic Nourishing Lip Balm in Sweet Pea.

Baby, It's Cold Outside

Posted on November 10, 2011 by terresa | 3 Comments

Cold Outside If you've been eyeing the Cold Outside holiday collection, but wondering if you could really pull off those vivid, cool tones, we hope this helps.  We applied the colors to our model, Nikki, so you can see how fantastic they look on a real person.

Nikki is wearing Beige 4 foundation and the entire "Cold Outside" collection.  We applied Snowdrift from her lashes to her brows, and then put Snow Angel on the inner 2/3 of her lid.  With a damp brush, we lined under her lower lashes with Snow Angel.  We then applied Jack Frost to the outer 1/3 of her lid, and blended it gently into the crease.  With a damp brush, we lined her upper lashes with Jack Frost.

We gently applied a little Rosy Cheeks to the apples of her cheeks, and slicked on some Cranberry Organic Nourishing Lip Balm as the finishing touch.  We think Nikki looks beautiful! Her image is unretouched.

Holiday Brush Collection

Posted on October 28, 2011 by terresa | 0 Comments

Brush sets are classic holiday gifts.  Nearly every woman wants high-quality makeup tools, but not every woman can justify buying them for herself.  Here's your chance to make a friend, sister, mother or daughter swoon this holiday season!  Alima Pure's Irresistible Brush Set includes four of our incredibly soft makeup brushes in a beautiful signature bag for only $55, a savings of $30!

The set includes our cult-favorite #25 Foundation Brush, the plush and perfect #17 Blush Brush, the does-it-all #39 Large Shadow Brush and the oh-so-handy #35 Eye Detail Brush.  The bag is easy to clean and features our adorable Bird zipper pull.

The #25 Foundation Brush was created by Alima Pure for the most efficient and beautiful application of our Satin Matte Foundation.  It's synthetic bristles are gently domed to easily reach all of the contours of your face.  The #17 Blush Brush will deliver your blush or bronzer without a hint of the itchiness or scratchiness that animal-hair brushes can cause.  The #39 Large Shadow Brush can be used to cover the entire lid with a base shade, or turned on it's side to contour a crease or lid; and the #35 Eye Detail Brush can quickly smudge a liner, cover a blemish or polish a lip.

Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Posted on October 21, 2011 by terresa | 1 Comment

Okay, maybe it isn't exactly cold yet, but we know it is coming--the winter chill and the holidays. Whether you prefer strolling through the snow or snuggling by the fire, Alima Pure has you covered with two Limited Edition holiday collections that can be worn separately or together.

The Cold Outside collection features three cool-toned shadows and a blush.  Snowdrift is an off-white shimmer with a hint of silvery blue.  Snow Angel is a light-to-medium blue with silver sparkle.  Jack Frost is a deep, blue-toned purple shimmer.  Rosy Cheeks is a gorgeous, just-in-from-the-cold pink blush.

For the Cold Outside look, apply Snowdrift from crease to brows.  Apply Snow Angel on the lid form the inner corner, and over 2/3 of the lid.  With a damp brush, line under the lash line with Snow Angel.  Apply Jack Frost to the outer 1/3 of the lid, and lightly blend into the crease.  With a damp brush, line the upper lid with Jack Frost.  Swirl a bit of Rosy Cheeks on the apples of the cheeks.  Finish with Organic Nourishing Lip Balm in Cranberry.

Warm Inside features three warm-toned shadows and a shimmer powder.  Candlelight is a pale gold shimmer.  Mulled Cider is a medium rose-gold sparkle.  Hot Toddy is a deep, shimmering bronze.  Firelight is a warm gold Luminous Shimmer Powder.

For the Warm Inside look, apply Candlelight from the lashes to the brow.  Add Mulled Cider to the lid, and sweep Hot Toddy into the crease and at the other corner.  With a damp brush, line upper lashes and outer 1/3 of the bottom lashes with Hot Toddy.  If desired, dust a little of your favorite blush on the apples of your cheeks.  (We really like Satin Matte Blush in Pink for this, or Rosy Cheeks from the Cold Outside collection!)  Then highlight the tops of the cheekbones and around the temples with Firelight.  Finish with Organic Nourishing Lip Balm in Cranberry.

The Baby, It's Cold Outside collection is available only at www.alimapure.com for a limited time.  Each set contains three full-sized eyeshadows and a full-sized blush or shimmer powder, packaged in a beautiful Alima Pure gift box.  Cold Outside and Warm inside are $36 each, with $2 from each set going to the Global Fund for Women.
