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.”
If you are thinking of trying an Alima Pure brush for your mineral eyeliner, you've probably noticed, we have two different versions. The #31 Fine Liner Brush is a pointed shape (and also excellent for spot concealing), while the #33 Angle Liner Brush (which is also great for filling in brows) is flat and angled. So how does one decide between the two?
