If you've been eyeing the Cold Outside holiday collection, but wondering if you could really pull off those vivid, cool tones, we hope this helps. We applied the colors to our model, Nikki, so you can see how fantastic they look on a real person.
Nikki is wearing Beige 4 foundation and the entire "Cold Outside" collection. We applied Snowdrift from her lashes to her brows, and then put Snow Angel on the inner 2/3 of her lid. With a damp brush, we lined under her lower lashes with Snow Angel. We then applied Jack Frost to the outer 1/3 of her lid, and blended it gently into the crease. With a damp brush, we lined her upper lashes with Jack Frost.
We gently applied a little Rosy Cheeks to the apples of her cheeks, and slicked on some Cranberry Organic Nourishing Lip Balm as the finishing touch. We think Nikki looks beautiful! Her image is unretouched.
Brush sets are classic holiday gifts. Nearly every woman wants high-quality makeup tools, but not every woman can justify buying them for herself. Here's your chance to make a friend, sister, mother or daughter swoon this holiday season! Alima Pure's Irresistible Brush Set includes four of our incredibly soft makeup brushes in a beautiful signature bag for only $55, a savings of $30!
The set includes our cult-favorite #25 Foundation Brush, the plush and perfect #17 Blush Brush, the does-it-all #39 Large Shadow Brush and the oh-so-handy #35 Eye Detail Brush. The bag is easy to clean and features our adorable Bird zipper pull.
The #25 Foundation Brush was created by Alima Pure for the most efficient and beautiful application of our Satin Matte Foundation. It's synthetic bristles are gently domed to easily reach all of the contours of your face. The #17 Blush Brush will deliver your blush or bronzer without a hint of the itchiness or scratchiness that animal-hair brushes can cause. The #39 Large Shadow Brush can be used to cover the entire lid with a base shade, or turned on it's side to contour a crease or lid; and the #35 Eye Detail Brush can quickly smudge a liner, cover a blemish or polish a lip.
Okay, maybe it isn't exactly cold yet, but we know it is coming--the winter chill and the holidays. Whether you prefer strolling through the snow or snuggling by the fire, Alima Pure has you covered with two Limited Edition holiday collections that can be worn separately or together.
The Cold Outside collection features three cool-toned shadows and a blush. Snowdrift is an off-white shimmer with a hint of silvery blue. Snow Angel is a light-to-medium blue with silver sparkle. Jack Frost is a deep, blue-toned purple shimmer. Rosy Cheeks is a gorgeous, just-in-from-the-cold pink blush.
For the Cold Outside look, apply Snowdrift from crease to brows. Apply Snow Angel on the lid form the inner corner, and over 2/3 of the lid. With a damp brush, line under the lash line with Snow Angel. Apply Jack Frost to the outer 1/3 of the lid, and lightly blend into the crease. With a damp brush, line the upper lid with Jack Frost. Swirl a bit of Rosy Cheeks on the apples of the cheeks. Finish with Organic Nourishing Lip Balm in Cranberry.
Warm Inside features three warm-toned shadows and a shimmer powder. Candlelight is a pale gold shimmer. Mulled Cider is a medium rose-gold sparkle. Hot Toddy is a deep, shimmering bronze. Firelight is a warm gold Luminous Shimmer Powder.
For the Warm Inside look, apply Candlelight from the lashes to the brow. Add Mulled Cider to the lid, and sweep Hot Toddy into the crease and at the other corner. With a damp brush, line upper lashes and outer 1/3 of the bottom lashes with Hot Toddy. If desired, dust a little of your favorite blush on the apples of your cheeks. (We really like Satin Matte Blush in Pink for this, or Rosy Cheeks from the Cold Outside collection!) Then highlight the tops of the cheekbones and around the temples with Firelight. Finish with Organic Nourishing Lip Balm in Cranberry.
The Baby, It's Cold Outside collection is available only at www.alimapure.com for a limited time. Each set contains three full-sized eyeshadows and a full-sized blush or shimmer powder, packaged in a beautiful Alima Pure gift box.

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.
