Our first 3 for $30 eyeshadow sets were such a big hit that we decided to go a little bit wild with the newer ones. So when we first asked Urmila to model our Vivid! for Brown Eyes eyeshadow set, she was agreeable. Then we told her the colors in the set. “Aegean??? I don’t think I can wear blue eyeshadow,” she said. Of course we told her she definitely could, and we would prove it. The results are here for the world to see!
Dea is one of our amazing Customer Service experts. She answers emails and phones, solving shipping and credit card issues with calmness and kindness. In fact, we can’t think of a time when we have ever seen Dea lose her temper!
Dea’s current favorite product is Keiko Satin Finishing Powder. Keiko is the perfect complement to her Neutral 3 Satin Matte Foundation, and she loves the way it smooths over everything, giving her skin a more refined look, and keeps her matte all day long. But we should let Dea tell you! Continue reading
Have you noticed that it is now just a little easier to shop and select makeup colors on the Alima Pure website? We have been adding little features and hints to make it simpler to find what you’re looking for, even if you aren’t always exactly sure what you’re looking for!
In our website make-over, we added a handy feature that allows you to sort all of our eye products and blush shades by color. Of course, we recognize that our idea of “pink” might not be exactly the same as your idea of “pink,” but keep in mind that we have listed them by the shade we are most likely to call a particular color. While Eden Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow could be called “green” or “gold,” it definitely could not be called “yellow,” so it will show up in a search for “green” colors. Continue reading
The final step of celebrating our website’s makeover is to do the sort of giveaway that our Facebook fans requested. It’s a shopping spree! Enter our giveaway below, and you could be the lucky winner of $100 to spend on at alimapure.com. Wondering what you’d spend it on? We asked a few staffers what they would recommend, and their helpful suggestions follow. They will give you an idea of the different approaches you could take!
Having 61 shades of foundation to choose from, like most things in life, comes with both positives and negatives. On the plus side, we are certain that we can provide a superb foundation match for more women than any other cosmetics brand. On the negative side though, with 61 to choose from, it can be downright tricky to select your best shade.
We’ve definitely tried to be helpful. Rather than give our Satin Matte Foundations beautiful names, we settled on a shade range (Cool, Beige, Olive, etc.) and a depth number (0 for lightest, 9 for deepest), resulting in products like “Olive 3″ and “Cool 8″. We offer sample sizes so that you can pick some choices that might work for you and try them out before committing to a full-sized jar. And we have always had our “Ask the Artist” option, allowing customers to contact our makeup artists and answer a few questions to have the selections narrowed down for them. But we realize that these things don’t solve the problem for everyone. Maybe it seems somehow pesky to write to the artist. Maybe you’re unsure exactly what “cool” and “warm” mean with regards to your skin.
Deep blue eyeshadow is huge runway trend this season and just so happen to be incredibly flattering on most eye colors. If you’re new to wearing blue, don’t fret; here are a few quick tips to get you started. But more importantly, be adventurous and have fun playing!
Pop a deep shade like Navy Luminious Shimmer Eyeshadow or Smoke Luminious Shimmer Eyeshadow into the outer corner of your lower lid and blend out with a #37 Eye Blending Brush. This is a simple alternative to the traditional smokey eye. Try not to blend too high above the crease when using blues.
If you’re like most people and wear a neutral shadow much of the time, try something lighter like Azure Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow. With just a hint of Azure in the inner or center of your lower lid the center you can completely transform your look.
Since summer is slowly inching its way to Portland, we can’t help but dream of taking a vacation to the most “glam” summer vacation spot on the eastern shore. What better way to get in the mood for cocktail parties and sand than by planning a packing list perfect for the Hamptons?
