She's dangerous AND ethical! Tonya Kay is the world's ONLY professional female knife thrower (as seen on History Channel's "More Extreme Marksmen"). She also restores hot rods, dances with fire (as seen on NBC's "America's Got Talent") and shoots guns. The Most Dangerous Woman in Hollywood doubles as a long-term raw vegan, aggressive environmentalist and green philanthropist. She may shoot guns, but never at animals or people. She may crack whips, but only those which are leather-free in construction. She may sit in studio make up chairs, but on-camera as well as off, Tonya Kay insists that her cosmetics be cruelty-free. Look for Tonya Kay in cruelty-free cosmetics on Showtime's "Live Nude Comedy" (premiers July 16). Tonya Kay performs her Bullwhip Burlesque solo wearing exclusively Alima Pure mineral cosmetics, proving that the greenest option can also yield the best performance.
Tonya Kay has been an Alima Pure customer for several years and in the office, one of our favorite things is hearing what she's been up to. And she's always up to something interesting! We've seen Tonya Kay in a Trace Adkins video and a "We Can Solve It" commercial; we've read her e-book about eating raw vegan; and we've followed her experiences hanging out with elephants in Thailand. She leads an interesting life, and those things just barely scratch the surface.
Tonya Kay's commitment to treading lightly on our planet is not just talk--she walks the walk, but she does it with a sparkling smile and contagious joie de vivre. While we recognize that her latest project, "Live Nude Comedy" might not be everyone's cup of tea, her enthusiasm, ethics and "all-in" attitude are something most everyone can support. We think she's adorable and admirable.
"Live Nude Comedy" features actor/comedian Andy Dick along with a host of talented comics in a lively half hour of laugh-out-loud television hosted by American Pie's Shannon Elizabeth. 28 minutes of music, dance and pure hedonism fill each of "Live Nude Comedy's" 6 episodes, premiering July 16th at midnight. After Showtime's sexy special, watch for Tonya Kay playing the reoccurring CASSIDY in October's premiere of "Secret Girlfriend" on Comedy Central. To see what else Tonya Kay has been up to, you can check out her website, www.TonyaKay.com.
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.
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 New Year!
Valentine’s Day is definitely all about living “the sweet life.” With that in mind, Alima Pure has created La Dolce Vita - four seasonal eyeshadow colors to bring a little extra sweetness to your look, all without one extra calorie or fat gram.
Cupcake is a sweet, shimmery pink, as light and frothy as it’s namesake.
Petit Four is a sparkling beige with sparks of gold, as irresistible as the little cakes of the same name.
Tiramisu is a much-loved shade making a return appearance. If you were lucky enough to receive last year’s “Alima Signature Colors” stack of three shades, you have seen Tiramisu before. A shimmery, light-to-medium brown, Tiramisu will surely be a go-to color for many.
Mousse is named for dark chocolate mousse; deep enough to satisfy but not so heavy as to overwhelm. Our Mousse features a lovely golden shimmer.
As an added bonus, you will receive a deluxe sample of Meringue, a sparkling white.
La Dolce Vita “Sweet” look
Apply Cupcake from lashes to brow. Sweep Tiramisu into the crease, blending well. Apply Petit Four under lower lashes, from the outer corner and stopping about 2/3 of the way in. With a damp brush, line the upper lid with Mousse.
Use a matte pink blush like Pink or Raspberry on the apples of the cheek and apply a tiny bit of Cupcake shadow on the tops of cheekbones.
Finish with a pink balm like Acai or Rhubarb.
La Dolce Vita “Sultry” look
Apply Meringue from crease to brow, and Petit Four from lashes to crease. Use Mousse as a liner on top and bottom lashes, smudging well. Place Tiramisu directly above Mousse on the upper lid, blending it upwards toward the crease. Add a bit of Mousse to the outer corner and crease, blending well.
Apply a soft, earthy blush like Carnation to apples of cheeks and blend back towards ear.
Use a deeper lip balm like Cranberry, and apply liberally, then gently blot to leave a soft stain.
Le Bon Marché, in Paris, is considered by many aficionados to be the most exclusive department store in the world. The store is stunningly gorgeous, and they carry some of the loveliest merchandise you can find anywhere. And now, it's even a little more beautiful, at least in our humble opinion. Alima Pure is available at Le Bon Marché! We stopped in on our recent trip, and were delighted to see our lovely little jars in such a sophisticated setting.
You'll find the Alima Pure corner in the natural cosmetics department. So on your next trip to Paris, between fabulous meals and sightseeing, stop by Le Bon Marché and get yourself a little something that you know you'll use!
