Mineral Makeup for Acne Prone Skin

Posted on August 14, 2013 by Clarissa Fong | 0 Comments

The very first step to working with makeup for acne prone skin is to make sure your previous makeup application removal is thorough. While keeping up with a good cleanser and moisturizer that works well with your skin is necessary before any application of makeup, the makeup brushes you use and the care you take of your products may be equally important.

Get The Look: Karen Elson’s Natural Makeup

Posted on July 30, 2013 by Terresa Clark | 0 Comments

To create a gorgeous, natural makeup look for summer like Karen Elson's, start with the Satin Matte Foundation that matches your skin tone. If you haven’t found your match yet, you might want to use our Foundation Selector. To keep your look dewy and light, try mixing your foundation with some of your moisturizer in the palm of your hand and apply as you would a liquid foundation. If you prefer to use your foundation dry, sweep a little Lumina Luminous Shimmer Powder across your cheekbones and forehead.

For a natural flush, Satin Matte Blush in Pink on the apples of the cheeks works for almost every skin tone. Then using the #37 Eye Blending Brush, sweep a little Pearluster Eyeshadow in Champagne on your lids. Using the #33 Angle Liner Brush, line eyes with Pewter Satin Matte Eyeliner. Dampen your brush for a defined look, and then smudge a bit of dry powder around the edges of the liner.

To complete the look, groom your brows, apply a coat or two of black mascara, and sweep Sweet Pea Nourishing Lipbalm on to your lips. Voila, you are ready for a day at the beach or a night on the red carpet!

Searching for Sensitive Skin Makeup? Try Mineral Cosmetics.

Posted on July 25, 2013 by Brynn Opsahl | 1 Comment

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.

Oh, Deer! Fun Makeup Tutorial for Kids

Posted on March 11, 2013 by Terresa Clark | 0 Comments

Recently, we were contacted by Portland-area photographer Diana Sell with an interesting question. She wanted to do a photo shoot for her son's Kindergarten class as an auction project, and needed a little help with the makeup. Now, normally we aren't fans of kindergarteners wearing makeup, but Diana had found an on-line tutorial on how to do deer makeup. Since her son attends Deer Creek school, it seemed like a natural!  But the tutorial showed all sorts of makeup that didn't seem like the best things to put on the sensitive skin of young children, so Diana reached out for a little advice.
