A MAKEOVER / GIVEAWAY WITH ALIMA PURE

as i mentioned last week, we leave today for a two week east coast trip.  it was initially going to be work mixed with play, but a family emergency has changed the game.  we’re now going to NYC for three days and then headed straight to florida to be with family.  i’ve prepared a bunch of posts for while i’m away, and have a few guest posters that i’m thrilled to have on board with some tasty yummies!  and for today, a giveaway i’m so excited about i can hardly stand myself! 

alima pure recently reached out to me and introduced themselves.  after spending just a minute on their site i was completely smitten, a makeup company after my own heart!  their mineral makeups are gorgeous and their packaging is divine. but even better they contain no toxics, no irritants, no preservatives, and are cruelty free!  beyond amazing.  

they were kind enough to do a little makeup makeover on me, and i’m so thrilled to share my experience!  as you may remember from this post, i’m practically a makeup virgin.  i’ve been wearing the same products for years, with little idea of what i was doing.  and i know a lot of you chimed in that you feel the same!  so i jumped at this opportunity to introduce us all to an amazing line of products that are so easy to use, even a newbie like me can shine.  and i have to say, even though i’m used to wearing next to no makeup, i’m now a convert.  seeing my face all prettified by these beautiful mineral makeups has me hooked and there’s no going back!

and the most exciting part is THEY’RE GIVING ONE LUCKY READER A FACE MAKEOVER TOO!  see all those goodies below… one lucky reader is going to win all of that!  so good, right?!  and in addition to that awesomeness, they’re offering EVERYONE 10% off their order with the code “AHOUSEINTHEHILLS” (valid through August 12th).  hip hip!

in the photo above i’m wearing the products shown- which i’m not kidding you took me no more than 7 minutes to apply.  the thing i love most about them is they look natural, not heavy handed, but still do wonders for my face!  my favorite product is the eyeliner, it makes my eyes pop and was much easier to apply than the pencil liner i’ve been using for years!  plus if you wet your brush you can easily turn the powder liner into liquid liner…how rad is that?!  tips for buying makeup online, applying mineral makeup and details on how to win your own alima pure makeover after the jump!

BUYING MAKEUP ONLINE:

i’ve never bought makeup that i haven’t already been using online  in large part because choosing makeup online can be so daunting (it’s hard enough in the store, right?!)  but alima makes it much easier by offering sample sizes of many of their products so that you can test out a few and see what you love best to order full size.  this was so helpful for me especially when choosing the foundation!  they also have this handy foundation selector to help you narrow it down. and there are so many other resources on their site to help you along through the process as well. i loved this tip for choosing eyeshadow colors!

TIPS FOR APPLYING:

- start with a clean, moisturized face

- shake some powder into the lid of the container and swirl the makeup brush in it to get the makeup into the brush.  blow lightly to remove excess. (this appllies to foundation, bronzer, eyeshadow, etc)

- to turn the foundation into concealer, wet the the liner brush or shadow brush and then add a little foundation powder.  paint onto any areas that need a little extra coverage.  dust with foundation powder when finished!

- just a little bit of the mineral makeup goes a long way, so layer lightly to acheive just the look you’re going for!

 

DETAILS ABOUT THE GIVEAWAY:

winner will receive a phone consult with alima pure to help determine the best products/colors for their skin type and to answer any questions as well as everything shown above, in the colors of your choice!  this includes: 4 makeup brushes, foundation, bronzer, blush, (2) eyeshadows, eyeliner, and a lipbalm.  total value over $200!

to enter visit alima pure and leave a comment below with the product you are most excited to try (i was the most excited to try the eyeliner and shimmer eyeshadow)!  comments must be posted by midnight on friday and a winner will be chosen randomly shortly thereafter.  winner will be notified by email and announced on the blog.  so much good luck to all of you!  xx- sarah

** EDIT** GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED, CONGRATS TO LUCKY WINNER JENN FROM PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA!

    I'd love to try the foundation! My wedding is at the end of August, just around the corner. I've been hesitant to buy traditional foundation because I don't want to commit to a whole container of foundation that might bother my skin. I'd love to give it a try! And the luminous shimmer powder! Lovely!

    Hi Sarah!! For me the excitement is stemming from they are creulty free!! 10 yrs ago I made a conscious decision to cut certain practices out of my life, and I have lived a creulty free life for about 8 yrs. Unfortunately CF makeup always seems to fall a little hort on quality products, so this line sounds amazing!! Can't wait to try the shimmer shadow and lip balm!! Clare

    OK I know this post is about makeup but I really like your ombre hair color & printed this out to show my colorist. I have summer highlights now but in aug, would like to ombre it this way. I cant do foundation from any brand as skin needs to breathe. Will check out the site but usually go to Sephora as seems easier.

    The bronzer – as a SF girl our "summers" consist mostly of foggy days so I always need to add a little color to my routine!

    I have been on the HUNT for good, natural makeup! I'd love to try the shimmer and matte eye shadows but that Delicious Summer kit on the website has my name all over it!

    I'm most excited about the Delicious Summer collection. Those shades are shimmery and summery and so versatile, so they can be worn on a daily basis.

    This seems like a great line, and it's so great to find a line that doesn't contain any irritants and that is also animal friendly! I would say, I'm most excited to try the foundation, considering I have yet to find a foundation that's right for my skin.

    I'm definitely most eager to try the foundation. I am half Swedish, half Filipino, so finding the right foundation to match my skin tone is a NIGHTMARE. This brand looks promising!

    I'm most excited about the matte eyeliners- I received a sample in espresso from Spirit Beauty Lounge and loved the fact I could line my eyes with it AND define my brows. In my move to "clean" makeup, I was missing all my go to eye products… But Alima gives me hope! Yay, no toxins!

    I am most excited to try the hypoallergenic brushes! A good brush is essential so my sensitive skin doesn't get irritated. Have a lovely trip, travel tingles are the best :)

    I've struggled with health issues for five years now– I've had several "un-official" diagnoses– Chron's Disease, IBS, Colitis. On top of many symptoms my skin has become extremely sensitive, and I've developed many allergies. I'll the make up I've tried has made me breakout in a rash. Many people have told me to try natural, good quality mineral powder, even if it's pricey, they say it's worth it. I haven't been able to afford the purchase yet– but, it would be such a blessing to win such a deal. I'm most interested in the Satin Matte Mineral Foundation. I would truly love to try it!

    Ooh … I'm interested in so many things :) An organic oil and butter based lip balm is always appreciated and a lightweight concealer with great coverage works wonders too. Can't wait to try both!!

    I would LOVE to try the Nourishing Lipbalms! The colors look gorgeous, and it's hard to find such a wide variety in natural brands. I would also love to try the Luminous Shimmer Eyeliner. I so look forward to checking your blog everyday, it's my little moment of relaxation! My not-guilty pleasure! :)

    I would love to try the luminous shimmer blush because I have seen what a difference blush can make in a makeup routine. As someone with freckles, foundations and bronzer often don't work with my skin tone, but blush usually does the trick!

    I was so happy & excited when I came across this post & contest. I have very sensitive skin and noticed little white pimple like dots forming around the rims of my eyelids (yucky!) and stopped wearing any face make up to see if they went away. I have been rocking a make-up-less face for over a month and have been itching to test all natural products to see if I have the same reaction.

    The Pearluster Eyeshadow sounds amazing. I love the fact that you can wear it wet or dry – sounds like a fun product!

    I was just reading about the Alima concealer on another blog! The reviewer had nothing but praise for the incredible quality of the products (as well as the very reasonable prices). I'm so curious about their foundation– I need something with more coverage than powder alone, and this seems ideal. Thank you for this giveaway!
