The very first step to working with makeup for acne prone skin is to make sure your previous makeup application removal is thorough.

With naturally sensitive skin, finding the right mineral makeup can be extremely difficult. After disappointing test runs with many sensitive skin beauty products claiming “natural” or “herbal” properties to prevent reactions and keep you feeling fresh and healthy, we can understand the desire to give up the search. Here at Alima Pure, we deeply believe in the idea that less is more. Products should be simple, clean, pure and feel good, no matter how often you use them. This is why our mineral makeup works well with sensitive skin—the fewer ingredients put into the product, the less likely it is to irritate the skin.
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.
