If you have ever wished that there were an easy way to introduce someone that you care about to Alima Pure cosmetics, we have just the thing for you! We know buying a foundation for a loved one can be a tricky proposition, but who doesn't love to receive a gift of color? With three of our best-selling shades in three of our customer-favorite products, we think these sets will make it easy to convince your friends and family to ditch the chemical-filled products and join you in appreciating the beauty of natural makeup!
The Natural Beauty Warm set includes our popular Satin Matte Blush in Carnation, an earthy pink; Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow in Chai, a constant best-seller; and Organic Nourishing Lipbalm in Mango, a warm pink that brings brightness to a wintertime palette.
The Natural Beauty Cool set includes best-selling Satin Matte Blush in Antique Rose, a soft red that works for almost everyone; Pearluster Eyeshadow in Taupe, a soft neutral that creates a polished look; and Organic Nourishing Lipbalm in Fig, a bronzed plum that won't overpower your lips.
Individually, the products in these sets would retail for $39.50, but through the holidays they are value priced at only $30 each. But best of all, these sets are a perfect to prove to skeptics that natural cosmetics can be gorgeous!
December may just be the most difficult month to take care of yourself. Because we know most of our customers are spending the month thinking of (and doing things for) others, we want to give you a little treat. We have created a beautiful, limited edition shade of our popular Organic Nourishing Lipbalm...Quince! Now you may be wondering, "why did they make a yellow lip balm?" But Quince is not the color of the quince fruit, but the Quince flower. A delicious, bright red, with a slight hint of sparkle, Quince is brighter than Holly Berry and more red than Sweet Pea.
Tips for how to have a safe Halloween are everywhere this time of year, but most of them overlook the importance of safe Halloween makeup. Many costumes require a bit of makeup, but the ingredients of those pre-packaged Halloween makeup kits that are in all of the stores right now are more frightening than the looks they create. So here is proof, you can create some great Halloween looks using only Alima Pure mineral makeup!
This months Naturally Gorgeous model, Kristen Ulmer, enters a room like a power surge, crackling with enthusiasm and energy. But ask her to sit, (to have her makeup done) and she is still; calm and centered. Just seeing how easily she shifts from one mode to the other and how entirely comfortable and joyful she is in her skin, it makes you wonder...how can I get some of that? And you can, visit Kristen's website to learn about all she offers! Kristen has mastered the art of living in the moment, and she is living each moment to its fullest. To say she is inspiring to be around is an understatement!
Oxblood, burgundy, wine, maroon, and cranberry... this luscious fall hue goes by many names. One thing is for certain; it's the go-to color this fall. As summer transitions into fall, do you find yourself craving rich colors? We certainly do here at Alima Pure, and pops of cranberry are what we’ve been craving. So, we put our heads together to come up with a few lust-worthy incarnations of this fall favorite.
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.”
