STEP 1 - CHOOSE YOUR DEPTH OF COLOR

0 level shades appear almost white on the skin, and are suitable for people who seem to burn when they merely think about the sun. People this light are relatively rare, and have difficulty finding foundations light enough for their skin.

1 level shades are extremely fair, but with a bit of color. Level 1’s actually have to go into the sun to burn – for about 3 minutes. People with this coloring wear the lightest shade of foundation available from conventional brands.
2 level shades are basically lightest. If you wear the lightest (or next-to-lightest) shade in a conventional line, then level 2 may be perfect for you.

3 level shades would be considered ‘light to medium’ skin tones. You can take a little sun, carefully (though it’s better not to).

4 level shades are right there in the middle. You might not burn very easily, but it’s still possible. 
5 level shades have caramel skin tones with any undertone.
 
6 level shades are right on the border of medium and deep. Even if you have a cooler skin tone, you probably tan easily.
 
7 level shades work well for those with bronze skin tones.
 
8 level shades are for those with dark brown skin tones.

9 level shades work for those with the deepest skin tones.

STEP 2 – CHOOSE YOUR UNDERTONE
Your undertone is the underlying color of your skin. It can seem a little confusing but you probably already know your undertone. It's easy. There are three basic undertones: cool, neutral, and warm. Think of the colors that you love and feel terrific wearing.  
Cool toned people look best in white, rich jewel tones and blue-based colors (purple, cool red, blue, fuscha, pink), and silver toned jewelry. 
Warm skin tones are flattered by ecru, earth tones (brick red, orange, olive, and warm yellow-based brown), and gold tones jewelry.
If you are neither clearly cool nor warm then you probably have a neutral skin tone. Neutrals generally look great in a variety of colors (though probably no extremes) and both silver and gold toned jewelry. 
If you are COOL toned then you are likely to wear a color from our 'COOL' line. Take a look at the 'NEUTRAL' shades if you're not absolutely classically cool - our NEUTRAL line is a little less pinkish and might also work well for you. 
If you are NEUTRAL toned then you may do well with our NEUTRAL line. It's great for those who can wear some earth tones, some jewel tones, gold and silver, ecru and white. If you think you have a neutral skin tone but favor silver, white and jewel tones this is probably perfect for you.
If you are neutral toned and can wear cool colors but tend to favor warmer earth tones, gold, and ecru then you would probably do well with our BEIGE line. This is our most popular line from Europe to Asia. It's a classic 'warm neutral' tone that works well for lots of people.
If you are WARM toned you look decidedly best in warm earth tones and yellow-based colors. Rose pink, icy blue, and mint green don't work for you. 
If you are GOLDEN toned you have a rich yellow skin tone - warm with an extra dose of yellow. You look gorgeous in gold and earth tones, washed out in cool blue-based colors. Rich 24 karat gold looks fantastic on you.
Finally, our OLIVE shades were also created for neutral skin tones.  These shades are neither yellow nor pink but instead a variety of gradations of 'cafe au lait'. If you see neither yellow nor pink undertones, look great in a variety of earth tones and jewel tones, and can wear both gold and silver you might do well in an Olive shade.  Do note our Olive shades tend to run a little deeper than our other foundation lines.

Light coverage but does not irritate skin
5 Stars

I have been using this foundation for a few years and so far i am very satisfied with it. Apart that it will be quite messy as the powder will fly all over the place, there is no complaint for this product. However, it is very light and the coverage is not strong. So it cannot give the full makeup look. Good for everyday makeup if you want something light yet have some minimum coverage. Not very last though, I will need to touch up every 4 hours, but i guess it is also due to the hot weather in SG. Does not help to control oil but i have no issue with that. I have acne prone skin and so far it is working fine for my skin. Will recommend it if you have sensitive skin and want a light-weight foundation for daily makeup.

Highly recommend
5 Stars

This foundation is the best foundation I've tried. It is very lightweight, and you can build it up to full coverage with a dense brush. For my skin tone, I mix Warm 1 and Warm 2 to get the perfect shade match. On my very oily skin, I do get some creasing, but this foundation holds up better than all the others I've tried. It also does not irritate my sensitive skin or break me out. Highly recommend!

Warm 1
5 Stars

A wonderful powder foundation, not too drying on the face, and provides beautiful finishing. Will repurchase this product whenever I run out of it.

Magic Powder Foundation
5 Stars

I have had tried Alima Pure Satin foundation as well before this, and this foundation is just look like the finishing powder which has 3x coverage than the finishing powder. Whereas Satin Foundation has only 1x coverage compare with this magical powder. I took it to my europe winter trip and it works wonder on my skin indeed. I have combi skin and i choose Natural Beige. I love it and definitely will repurchase again !

LOVE THIS FOUNDATION
5 Stars

I've been battling with acne for several years now and it has come to my attention that the makeup that i was previously using was a part of the cause of my acne. Thus, I decided to give this foundation a shot since Alima Pure's products are known for being natural. Thinking that this may break me out again, i was extremely skeptical. However, this product proved me wrong! This has a medium coverage for my skin and i just love how hydrating it is despite being a powder foundation. However, this does not hold up very well for oily skin gals out there as it gives me a slight glow by the end of the day(which i love -- ps i have dry combination skin with an oily t zone). However, the only downside that this product has is that it clings on my dry spots when i first apply it. But if you leave it on your skin to sit for an hour or so, it will look extremely natural and skin-like and the flakey spots will disappear. All in all, this is a great product for people who have acne prone skin as it doesnt break me out at all!!!

Excellent foundation, highly recommended!
5 Stars

I am a long-time fan of this foundation. It works wonderfully with my oily, acne-prone and sensitive skin. It is lightweight and has very minimal ingredients, which are suited for my skin. The coverage is very much better than you would expect. It lasts fairly long and requires touch-ups on the T-zone maybe once or twice throughout the day. I find that compared to other foundations, this has a natural, brighter result. You can use this above a liquid foundation as well. I cannot stop raving about this! I have medium-deep Indian skintone and I use Warm 5, which works great for me.

Wonderful foundation
5 Stars

I wish I've discovered Alima Pure earlier. This foundation is not shimmering nor drying like other mineral brands I've tried. The minimal ingredients used ensure no breakout and yet work well at the same time, with buildable coverage and great texture.Not to mention the impressive range of shades available. I will highly recommend Alima Pure!

Nice color and texture
