Fabulous Mineral Bronzers for Spring

Posted on February 03, 2010 by terresa | 2 Comments

T.S. Eliot may have considered April the cruelest month but weather-wise, we think February can give April a run for it's money. Months of rain and/or snow have most likely taken their toll on your complexion, leaving you at your annual palest, and probably without that just-in-from-the-cold flush.

Alima Pure’s Yoga Collection

Posted on January 13, 2010 by kate | 4 Comments

Alima Pure Yoga Collection
This time of year, many people give more thought to exercise and stress relief. Yoga is an obvious answer to both of those concerns, providing benefits to body and mind.  To honor the power of yoga, Alima Pure has created our new Yoga Collection to bring calm and balance to your cosmetics bag and morning routine.

These new shades could be called “almost matte” or “semi-shimmery.”  They are a unique blend of matte and shimmer.  In direct light, they look shimmery, on the skin they are matte until you turn your head just so and catch the light. Mesmerizing!

  • Asana is a light peach with a hint of golden shimmer.
  • Namaste is a warm rosy shade touched by bronze shimmer.
  • Mantra is a soft blue-green sparked with gold.
  • Vinyasa is a medium, neutral brown with sparse shimmer.

Although these four shades were created to be eyeshadows, you shouldn’t hesitate to try Namaste, or even Asana, on the cheeks.

Yoga Class Look:

  • Sweep Asana from lashes to brow, blend Vinyasa into the crease.
  • Draw a bit of Mantra along the lash-line
  • Add a touch of Namaste to the center of your lids and the apples of your cheeks.
  • Finish with Acai Lip Balm.

You’ll look polished, but not as if you were too concerned with your appearance!

Ever since I’ve learned of it’s myriad of uses, I’ve kept it on hand in both our bathroom and kitchen. Once you’ve learned more about the ways it can be used, you may be tempted to purchase a jar or two, as well.

Dear Alima Pure Makeup Artist, I live in a VERY cold climate, my cheeks are often very rosy...too rosy in fact. I am starting to feel like I am looking like one of the wee men that work for my husband. Any advise? Would pistachio work? Or do I need something stronger?
