Alima Pure – Black Tie Gala – Face – Limited Edition Holiday Collection

Hi everyone!

Today’s post features 2 very lovely limited edition holiday collections from Alima Pure. If you’ve been following for a bit, you may know about my love for Alima Pure’s loose powder foundation and that love has now extended out into their line of eyeshadows and other great mineral powders that they offer. If you’re unfamiliar, Alima Pure offers some incredibly high quality mineral cosmetics including a unique line of loose eyeshadows, blushes, powder foundations and much more! They even offer natural makeup brushes! All of their products are cruelty free, BDIH certified, and free from harmful ingredients such as bismuth oxychloride.

For the holiday season, they are offering 2 great mineral makeup collections that are limited edition which feature some really lovely colors!

Black Tie Gala – Face – Clockwise – Tuxedo, Chandelier, & Red Carpet

Alima Pure – Black Tie Gala – Eyes – Limited Edition Holiday Collection

What I really love about these collections is that they both really represent the holidays very nicely with appropriate colors and combinations, but they also include a lovely glow in their eye shadows, blush and highlighter included in these collections just seem really warm and beautiful in a way that can be applied for a natural, understated holiday look or built up for a more glamorous and bold one. I love that their products are so versatile and customizable for many looks.

Eye Shadows – From top left clockwise – Minaudiere, Bijou, Stilettos & Ballgown

Eyes Swatches from Left to right – Stilettos, Ballgown, Minaudiere & Bijou

Here is My Finished Look Using Both Collections:

@AlimaPure Black Tie Gala for Face & Eyes!

Sorry for the half- face photo, but I was in a bit of a rush and I just wanted to give you an idea of what can be done. I’ve used all the shadows in the Black Tie Gala for Eyes Collection on my eyes in this photo. I also used the highlighter, blush and eyeliner from the Black Tie Gala for Face Collection, though it’s not really discernible in the photo. I even mixed the Red Carpet blush with a bit of lip balm for a tinted lip. For my lashes, I used the Dior Diorshow Extase Mascara.

Either or both of these collections would make great gifts for mineral makeup enthusiasts or those looking to get a lovely makeup look without all the harmful ingredients.

      Thank you! It does take patience, but then this was such a fluke. Normally I mess up 99.9% the time lmao. It’s a brand made here in the USA in Seattle or Portland? (drawing a blank there) and they are really lovely and affordable love them!! x
