Our lovely friend Jessa Blades, natural makeup artist extraordinaire, teamed up with eco fashionista Greta Eagan for an eco photo shoot. And what eyeshadow did they use? Alima Pure, of course! Read all about it here.
This year’s featured goddesses are Isis and Artemis. Isis was the Egyptian goddess of motherhood and magic. (Really, what’s the difference?) She was the ideal mother and wife. Greek goddess Artemis was the patron of women in childbirth and the guardian of young children and wild animals. Isis has a medium beige matte base, but with a generous helping of golden sparkle added. Artemis is a deep, matte eggplant with a brown undertone.
The collection comes in our adorable Alima Pure travel bag that houses four beautiful signature Alima Pure eye brushes as well as the Goddess shadow duo. The brushes are the #33 (Angle Liner/Brow), the #36 (Crease), #37 (All-Over Blending) and #39 (Large Shadow). The brushes are tucked into brush slots on one side of the bag, and the shadows are located in a zippered pouch on the opposite side. The two sides come together with our signature bird as the zipper pull.
The collection, with a value of $83 if purchased separately, is just $47, for a limited time only.
How to wear it:
With the #37 or #39 brush, apply Isis from lashes to brow. With the #36 brush, swirl a touch of Artemis in the outer corner and crease. Then line with Artemis and a damp #33 brush. In keeping with the goddess theme, wing your liner up and out just a bit at the other corner.
It has become something of an Alima Pure tradition--over the past several years, we have offered a set of nine deluxe samples as our gift to our customers with orders over $65 (before shipping and after any discounts) during the month of December.
