Alima Mineral Makeup
Makeup made from fine-textured, earth-based minerals, like zinc oxide, mica or titanium dioxide. Often, mineral makeup is free of potentially irritating colors, chemicals, fragrances and preservatives, making it ideal for rosacea, acne-prone or sensitive skin.
Alima is an affluent (tributary river) on the right bank of the Congo river, in the Republic of Congo's territory.
Today I tried Alima's Dove matte eyeshadow as a cheekbone contour. Above the bone is highlighted with M*A*D*Mineral's Fair foundation. Over everything, I dusted a little of bareFacedMinerals' CinnaBear blush.
I've been playing with different colors for contouring a while now. Once upon a time Lumiere's Cappucino matte eyeshadow rocked it for me, but I've gotten a little too tan for it. Bronzers or blushes are usually too colorful. Most darker shades of foundation just don't look right. Contour shadows need a little grey to look like natural shadows.
I think Alima's Dove is a great contour color.
