Amira has worked at Alima Pure since she was in high school, when she came after class to make samples. Now she's full-time and one of the people who you can ask just about any Alima question, and she'll know the answer!
On her lids, we used her (current) favorite shadows, Luminous Shimmer Shadows in Mink as a base, from lashes to brows, Black Orchid on the lid and Ombra as a liner. We added a touch of Raven to her brows.
Several years ago, we did a special gift of a limited edition lip color, Sweet Pea. Amira loved it so much, she made a case for us to make the shade permanent when we launched our new Organic Nourshing Lip Balms. So naturally, she's wearing Sweet Pea in the photo!
Alicia is here in Portland for the summer visiting family (her aunt, Kate O'Brien, is the creator of Alima Pure), and so she's spending some time helping out in Production. She's proven to be a hard worker and very fast learner, and she brightens up the office with her sweet smile and calm disposition. She will be sorely missed when she returns home! College in Oregon, Alicia? We think so!
Since she is relatively new to Alima Pure products, our makeup artist helped Alicia select some new favorite products. We started out with Satin Matte Foundation in Neutral 2, which was perfect for Alicia's fair skin. On her cheeks we used Luminous Shimmer Blush in Freja and then warmed everything up with a light dusting of Bronzer in Mauna Loa.
To highlight Alicia's beautiful eyes, which go between blue and blue-green, we used Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow in Buttercream from crease to brow, and in Brown Sugar on her lid. Luminous Shimmer Eyeliner in Paparazzi on a damp brush lines the upper lashes, and a hint of Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow in Leone with a dry brush is under the outer corner of her lower lashes.
We finished Alicia's look with Organic Nourishing Lip Balm in Sweet Pea.
Sara is more than just one of the longest-term Alima Pure employees, you could really call her the Alima Pure muse! Back when Sara was approaching the age when her mom had promised she could begin wearing makeup, mom began to have some concerns about what Sara would be putting on her young, beautiful skin. That's what prompted Kate O'Brien to create Alima Pure!
When we needed a photo for a blog post we did on Alicia Silverstone's blog, The Kind Life, we recruited Sara to model for us. We asked her to pick out her five favorite products to take for the photo shoot, and the results can be seen above. Sara is wearing Satin Matte Foundation in Warm 1, Satin Matte Blush in Pink, Pearluster Eyeshadow in Silk, Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow in Tigereye and our Organic Nourishing Lipbalm in Rhubarb. The result is soft, gorgeous and so easy to apply!
Mariama has worked at Alima Pure for three years. During the school year, she splits her time between Alima Pure and a teaching job, teaching handwork to elementary students. When she is off teaching, we miss her infectious laugh and dazzling smile, but we know the students are benefiting from our loss!
Mariama wears Satin Matte Foundation in Warm 6, so we applied that over her entire face. Then we highlighted her cheeks with Satin Matte Blush in Melon, which Mariama loves because it looks so natural.
We used Mariama's favorite shadows, Luminous Shimmer in Leone from her crease to her brow, and Satin Matte in Bayou on her lid. Then we dusted a bit of Luminous Shimmer in Brown Sugar over the whole thing. We finished with Luminous Shimmer Eye Liner in Maya in the crease and used damp as a liner. A touch of Satin Matte Eye Liner in Espresso filled in her brows.
The finishing touch was our Organic Nourishing Lip Balm in Cranberry. This super easy look has enough sparkle to fit Mariama's personality, but is quick and easy enough to apply before rushing off for a day of teaching little people!
Karin has worked at Alima Pure for four years, and is superb at keeping orders flowing out the door, from individual orders that customers place on line, to orders going around the world to our distributors.
As a working mother of three boys, Karin appreciates the fact that she can apply a handful of products without spending a lot of time, and have a perfect, glowing look that enhances her natural beauty.
On her eyes, we used two Luminous Shimmer shadows, Chai from the crease to the brows, and Sienna on the lid. Satin Matte Eyeliner in Espresso, used wet, lined the upper lashes, and Satin Matte Eyeshadow in Raven filled in the brows.
As the finishing touch, Karin applied our new Organic Nourishing Lip Balm in Holly Berry. It's just that easy to look Naturally Gorgeous!
