Natural Makeup Haul feat. Alima Pure!

Hello beautiful! I have a new video up today featuring some awesome new goodies from Alima Pure. They were so kind to send me some of their products to try out and they are beautiful. I discovered the brand a few months ago when searching for natural cosmetics and I was really pleased with their formulations. Their Satin Matte Foundation, for instance, only contains 4 ingredients (one of which is Zinc Oxide, which can actually help with calming inflammation so it's great for acne prone skin types). It's been my go-to foundation these last few weeks and I love the feel of it. It's very light but definitely provides buildable coverage. It's the foundation I have on in the video and I think it does a pretty good job concealing the blemishes I have going on at the moment. If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, I would definitely recommend looking into natural beauty products. Conventional makeup is unfortunately loaded with harmful ingredients (not only for our skin, but also our bodies - 60% to 70% of what we put on our skin gets absorbed into our blood stream), and there are lots of great alternatives out there for everything from foundation to lipsticks to mascaras to blushes. You can learn more about this from the book I mention called The Green Beauty Guide by Julie Gabriel.

I get asked if I wear makeup everyday and the answer is definitely no :) I love wearing makeup on occasion, but day to day I leave my skin bare and if I feel like it, I glam up my eyes using mascara, liner and some concealer. But it's great having natural mineral products to use when desired, without worrying about the ingredients used :) Hope you enjoy the video! XOXO
