Lovin' it!

"I bought an Ali Hamylton lipstick (Joyce) in a chemist shop in Perth in January '08 and have been ordering it ever since. I just can't find one like it in any other range! It's nice on its own and great overtop of any other colour. I've also tried a few other lipsticks in the range and love using them :-)"

Thanks"

"I have used Ali for approx 5 years.  I use it b/c the coverage is perfect to my skin tone and will last all day long.  It is not oily and does not show 'powder residue' like other powder foundations.  I always recommend it, but due to lack of suppliers in the ACT, it is 'too hard' for others to continue to use/buy.  My product that I CAN NOT and WILL NOT live without is Burdekin powder foundation...and my concealer...and my blush :o)"

It is a staple in my makeup bag. I love when wearing it people comment on how good my skin looks. Now that's a product every girl needs."

"I love the dual foundation. I apply it wet with a sponge and it has a great finish. It does not react with my skin which is very sensitive. It covers great but looks natural if you use the correct shade. I've used it on and off for 10 years but keep coming back to it. The only reason I buy anything else is because there not many stockyard around."

"I've been using your makeup for aprrox 3 yrs, as I've aged my skin has gone blotchy & I depend heavily on your concealer, it is the best out of all the products that I've tried."
Carol C...8th Sept '11

*****

"I had a free makeover using these products in 2001 and have never looked back. I don't wear a lot of makeup. I do my eyes - foundation- thats it. The liquid liner is divine and the ESK dual foundation is all I need. I rarely need to use a concealer or liquid foundation.  ESK lasts all day. I really appreciate the quality of the product. Nothing on the market comes close to feeling so light and natural, all the other mineral makeup versions feel a little funny on my skin, But not Ali Hamylton.  Everything  of yours that I use smells good (natural) and gives no irritation. I will be devistated if it ever gets discontinued. love it!"

I loved my makeover so much that I bought a whole range of Ali Hamylton products..foundation, concealer, bronzer, eyeliner, shimmer eye shadows, the works!! I have never done that before, so I must have been impressed!
I am an Ali Hamylton convert for sure, and highly recommend the products to friends :)"

"I have used the dual foundation for many years. About 10 I reckon! It is the most amazing product, no other compares to it as it gives the best coverage! I also use the concealer, blush and eye shadow and have quite a few shimmers too. But the dual foundation in Esk is unbeatable. Love it!

I have  never used anything as good as this foundation & have introduced it to lots of my family.  Only hassle I have is my local chemist no longer stock it & I have to travel an hour to purchase or buy online which makes it hard when your running short and havn't ordered any in advance...keep up the great products not sure what I'd do if I couldn't get them anymore!!  Deirdre x"

"I've used these cosmetics since my friend who was a beautician introduced me to them in 2000. I don't wear a lot of makeup, however the Bulla eyeshadow used with your brow brush is pretty much a daily occurrence since I first started using it. I use the shadow as an eyeliner and it is the best eyeliner I have ever used. I often have comments on my eyeliner and always say the brand I use. I hope that this product will always be available as I don't know what I'd do otherwise as I have never found anything that compares to your product :-)"

"I have been using the foundation for a few years now, it was recommended to me by a sales assistant in the chemist where I shop. Only recently have I started using the other products. I have recommended the product to family and friends who also use the products all the time now. My favourite would have to be the foundation. I don't wear a lot of make up and sometimes just apply the foundation. I usually don't like the feel of powders on my skin but I don't even know I have this on, it just feels so light and is easily applied. The other product I really like is the lip balm, I apply it all the time. Thanks Diana"

"I don't often buy makeup. I've used my current stores right down to the bare bones and I knew I couldn't put off buying some any longer. My skin is very fair and tempermental and it's very difficult for me to find easy to apply makeup that looked good and stayed looking good. I stayed at a friends place and borrowed her Ali Hamylton Makeup Book and I fell in love with the foundation, I looked awesome when we went out and when I got home it looked just as good! So now I want some of my very own! Thanks Ali!"

"So far I have only used the Burdekin Dual Foundation. It is a fantastic product, & as I needed a refill I decided to try more of the Ali Hamylton range."
Colleen F... 2nd December '10

*****

"I have used the Saxby dual foundation since about 2001, and find it ideal because of the correct skin shade for my skin, and because it conceals imperfections without clogging my pores or being difficult to use.  It is also long lasting, my skin feels natural with it on, not heavy or sticky.  If my skin is oily it lasts even better, if my skin is dry I can use a suitable moisturiser.  I like it because I don't want to be caked in foundation - I don't want to look perfect and flawless, but rather just to feel confident that I look ok.

I have rarely tried to find a better alternative, even though I was living in the UK between 2002 and 2009, since most powders and foundations are either to white, or too pink, or too heavy, and bronzing powders seem to highlight pores and imperfections."

Charmaine S... 26th November '10

"When I was training to be a beuty therapist I started using your products.  I love the colours, the foundations and I guess the main thing is I understand the product so i know how to use it.  I would love to have more traing with some of your new products.  I have used your products for 6 years and I have recomended others.  Its funny some times i try other foundations and so on but I always come back to Ali.  My favourite product is Shirl lipstick.  I would like to be able to purchase the two tone eyeshawdows you supply in the book, individually. Thanks Mel"

"Love love LOVE this foundation!!!! I used to wear Ali Hamilton Dual Foundation years ago, it was stocked at my local chemist, a total lifesaver and the only foundation that would cover my blemishes, stay on all day and reduce redness. I was absolutely devistated when the chemist told me, to my dismay, they were no longer stocking it as the product had been discontinued. Nothing I have tried since has come even close to Ali Hamilton. I recently tried googling Ali Hamilton just on the off chance my much loved foundation may have come into existence once again, and to my disbelief I found this website!  I have just placed an order for my favourite "Saxby" foundation and am very much looking forward to recieving it in the post. Very happy to be able to purchase this product once again. Thanks guys, Love your stuff!"

It has awsome coverage without feeling heavy and is a perfect match for my skin colour :) so have been using it ever since!! There was only one place in WA that I could get it and when they stopped stocking it I had no choice but to brave the internet order system and was plesantly surprised at how easy and customer friendly it was!!

"As a natural redhead, it's been virtually IMPOSSIBLE for me to find a foundation light enough for my skin that doesn't end up making my face go brown against my pale pinky complexion. Ali Hamilton's make-up has made me finally find the shades perfect against my complexion, and no signs of brown-ness after a day at work! You've solved a huge issue for me, and I'm incredibly thankful to finally find something light enough and natural against my skintone! Thankyou so much Ali Hamilton Makeup!"

"The part-time manager of a pharmacy in Bondi Junction, who had significant experience with many cosmetics brands, made me up one day with your cosmetics. I got exactly what I'd been after for years but didn't know how to get - a natural look that was flattering and didn't take more than 10 minutes to put together. I had lots of compliments and friends and family asking me what I'd done. I've never hestiated to recommend Ali Hamylton to them and my mum actually had Kylie show her how to do her make up too. It's helped me to look more professional and I'm sure didn't hurt my chances with the lads back when I was single :) thanks, Lou"

I had to leave this testimonial as it is because I loved it soooo much! 

"Sorry, Kyile, I don't know where to put my appriciation words about using your product for more than 6 years.
It is a creamy white base eyeshadow Eliza which let my makup stay in perfect condition from early morning till night. I'm 61 yrs of age and I noticed that my skin on eye lid didn't get affected by using non stop this cosmetic.
In a meantime i tried other ideas, but it was only a wast of money. Sorry for my english, but words come strait from my heart.
If you wish to edit please do and please attach my feelings on the "opinion wall" for others.
I wish you all the best on your further carrier, as I bless your Mum Ali!!!!

"I have used Ali Hamylton products for about 3 years now. The products are far more superior than normal cosmetics and I get many many comments asking... "what product do you use?". Simply stunning products for all ages, I have a daughter heading off to highschool and she does look very pretty with the products on for the Holy Communion & Graduation Days... Would not use any other product, so happy to find ALI and I have been doing  Makeup for 30 years!"

"Ali Hamylton products are worth taking the time out to let people know how wonderful they are. My fav product is the Burdekin dual foundation, I have never found a makeup that goes on so easy and doesn't even look like you're wearing makeup, and best of all doesn't even feel like you have makeup on. I can't live without it. Thankyou for creating such a wonderful product."
Tammie Louis... 24th August, '09.

"I used to sell Ali Hamylton products and they are fantastic. I use the Bulla eyeshadow as my eyeliner both on bottom and top lids and love it. It stays put all day and when people find out that it's a shadow, then they're shocked. It looks as good as an actual pencil liner and with results as good."

I used to work in a pharmacy that stocked AH and I fell in love with them and have used them ever since (I have strayed occassionally - but always return!). I love the dual foundation - it is often all I wear, provides great coverage without the 'overdone' look. I've recommended to many of my friends and they often use the shimmer sticks too."

Back to School Makeup

Isn't it funny when you get to the stage in your life when you catch yourself consistently saying "when I was young..."?  I am well and truly there!  I find that I am talking about the differences between my childhood and that of my children all the time.  It's not as bad as "when I was young we didn't even have shoes", but it is more like..."when I was young there weren't so many preservatives in the food, when I was young there wasn't so much to watch on TV, when I was young hanging out with your friends meant going to the beach or the latest doozy... When I was young we weren't even allowed to wear makeup to school!"

The moment I said that I created a makeup monster.  You see, I said no makeup to school, so the makeup was put on at school, and slowly, slowly the makeup got heavier and heavier and heavier.  By judging whether or not the makeup should be worn, I missed the opportunity the teach HOW to wear the makeup.  It wasn't until one night when we took the kids out for a birthday dinner and I took a photo and saw my little makeup monster staring me in the face that I saw the error to my ways.  There she was, foundation too heavy, wrong colour, no blush so looking pasty and a little ill, tooooooo much eye liner (what is it with teenagers and eye liner?!) and covered in pimples from not cleansing properly...I was ashamed of myself.  Here I was being pious and missing out on something fantastic.  So we finally sat down and had that "makeup for school" lesson.  One of those if you cant beat 'em, join 'em moments.

The first thing we did was cover how to remove your makeup properly.  She took a little bit of convincing, all her friends said that using an oil on your face is bad, and they should know!  I mean who am I with my 20+ years of experience, what would I know?  But she listened and tried the coconut oil out.  It took two weeks and a couple of amazing breakouts, but after that her skin was clear as a bell (and believe me bells are clear!).  So take a look at my skin care blog for that lesson.

Then we covered foundation.  The very best foundation to wear for school is the dual finish, applied with a brush.  No concealer, that is just too obvious.  The dual finish with a brush is soft, subtle and gives you just enough coverage.  If you need a little help with colour matching, or if your daughter needs more coverage than that for school then send me a photo and I can design something specific for her.

Then we went on to the blush explanation.  The thing is, if you wear a foundation you must wear a blush.  The funny thing is you end up looking like you have less makeup on if you do...wear more to look like less.  Wearing foundation takes all of the natural colours out of your face, mainly the colours that you don't want which is good, but you have to put the good colours back. Sydney is a perfect, soft blush just for this purpose.  It's not too peachy or pink and no shimmer to catch the sunlight, just a natural shade of warmth (if warmth is a shade!).  Apply a little to the apple of the cheek, (that's the front of the cheek bone, stand in front of the mirror and give yourself a huge grin and you will see the two little apples I am talking about), and then blend in small circular motions back toward your ear.  Be careful here, we don't want stripes, remember we are going for subtle.

Now, as much as they will protest, no bronzer!  The shimmer monster is in that bronzer, and this is the culprit that will get your girl busted for wearing makeup at school.  Bronzer out of school is great, add a little extra life and glow to the face is brilliant!

Now for the eyes.  My suggestion is to have groomed brows and lashes.  You can do this yourselves, just watch my video on how to tint and shape your brows, and also to have a regular eyelash tint, this way we don't need much mascara to get the definition that she will be looking for.  Then I would use a soft, subtle, brown liner.  Get as close to the lashes as possible with a sharp pencil, put a fine line on the outer 3rd and then blend it with a cotton bud.  Then curl the lashes and put a very small amount of mascara on the outer tips.  Finally a little bit of lip balm and voila! Beautiful, soft, virtually undetectable makeup.

I hope this helps you, let me know how you go.

Let's play this year...

Well, Happy New Year everyone.  I trust that you have all survived the silly season and are now ready to sit back and enjoy the rest of your summer.  I have to confess that I find the two or three weeks that surround the Christmas/New Year period really challenging.  I eat more than I should, drink more than I should, shop more than I want to and feel obliged to buy presents for people that I would otherwise not consider… how "bah humbug" is that?!  But it is reasonably true.  Of course there are the people that I love buying gifts for, and that does make up for the downside a lot.

Then, New Year comes around and you feel obliged to do two things.  One is reflect on the year gone by… how quickly they come and go!  It's like you turn 30 and time seems to go at a different pace!  I once read an article that said that this is actually a true phenomenon, that there is a hormone that effects our concept of time that we create less and less of as we get older (though I am sure there are a bunch of elderly people out there sitting in chairs watching time go round so slowly that would argue that theory with any budding genealogist!).  

Anyway,  back to reflection.  2011 was a year full of much change.  I had to include a full time job to my already full time job,  many changes with my growing children and Ali moved to Queensland just to name a few.  And all of this seems to have lead to me doing a "not so good job" on ThatMakeup.  It's not all bad, I did OK, you all got your product and 99.9% of the time it was on time and correct (though there was the odd slip up, you know who you are and you know how sorry I was :(  

No, my crap job has been on this blog, soooo many promises, sooooo many good intentions and sooooo little follow through.  I think I know why though, and I think I know how to fix it.  You see I just find it hard to talk about makeup all the time, I have heaps to say, but it isn't all makeup related and I end up sitting at my computer with that spare 30mins up my sleeve to wow you all with my brilliance, and I just get stuck on the inspiration stakes.  So my answer is to change things around a little.  I am just going to write.

Sometimes it will be about makeup, but sometimes it will be about some other wonderful thing that has taken my fancy.  I am not going email them all to you, so you wont be bombarded, it is all just going to sit here waiting for you to come and play.  So here's to 2012, I look forward to playing with you all much more this year.

My Skin Care Routine

Lucy asked if AHC is going to bring out a skin care range, and I guess one could say that the lip balm is our first foray into just that… but boy oh boy would I love to bring out a full range one day, that is a long way off though.  As I said earlier, we are just in the process of moving Ali and all her boxes, shelves, couches, goods and chattels up to Queensland, the idea of getting to any new products gives me a headache! 

So what do I do for skin care?  Well, I do my best to keep it as natural and simple as possible.

  My makeup remover/cleanser of choice is 100% pure Coconut Oil.  I can hear gasps of fear emanating from my readers…. "I'm not going to use an oil on my face!"  But don't be so quick to make that decision.  Coconut oil is a miracle product if ever there was one.  And the very next product in the Ali skin care range would be just that, 100% pure, cold pressed coconut oil... who knows, might not be as far away as it sounds.

There have been all kinds of accusations of the poor coconut.  Once upon a time it was believed to be bad for your heart because of its high saturated fat content, but it has now been proven to help prevent heart attacks, not cause them!  But what has that got to do with my skin you may ask… well, coconut oil is really high in Lauric Acid, it's 50% lauric acid actually!  And when lauric acid is present in the body it is converted to monolaurin, a monoglyceride that exhibits antiviral, antimicrobial, antiprotozoal and antifungal properties.

So what does this mean to your skin?  Well most acne is caused by bacterial infection especially if we pick that spot (which we say we don't/wont but we always do!) and then it gets red and inflamed.  So ideally we would eat more coconut oil to keep our monolaurin levels high, but even when it is present on the skin coconut oil does all of these things as well as being moisturising!  WOW!

I use about a teaspoon of oil on a warm, damp face and gently rub it all over my skin, through my makeup until I look like something scary, and then I wipe it off with a wet microfibre cloth.  I use a microfibre cloth as these little wonders not only gently remove all of that makeup, they also slough off dead, flakey skin so you can kiss that scrub goodbye, no need for that extra step!  After that I splash some extra water over my face to get any excess off.  Now, while it is still wet your skin is going to feel like it's oily, but fear not, as soon as you dry it voile it will feel super clean and so, so soft.

After that I go to bed, no night cream for me :)  According to Dr Haushka "The skin is most active at night and 'night creams' do not allow the skin to breathe and detoxify naturally. They can actually be counterproductive. Before sleeping the skin should be simply hydrated, cleansed, then conditioned or toned."  Now, I don't tone because when you cleanse with Coconut oil the ph level of your skin balances out over time, but if you are a mad keen toner then it's totally up to you (to me it is just another unnecessary expense and step).

Then, in the morning I cleanse again… you would be amazed at what comes out of your skin at night!  After that I moisturise with Phyts Creme Ylang on my face and Phyts Fluid Contours around my eyes. What a beautiful product Phyts is, the efficacy of their certified organic range is amazing, and the Creme Ylang is so soft and gentle that my ridiculously sensitive skin doesn't go crazy with it!  There are heaps of fantastic moisturisers to choose from in this range, ones that hydrate, oxygenate, deal with rosacea… you name it.  If you would like a hand in choosing one that would be right for you drop me an email and let me know about your skin I would be more than happy to help.  I have to admit, I have been a big part of fixing MANY skin care problems with this simple process.

You can buy good coconut oil from most health food stores, make sure it is cold pressed and preferably organic.   Not that I think organic is the be all and end all of everything, quite the contrary, I truly think that there is a whole lot of hog wash that goes along with the "organic" industry as I don’t believe that the cost of production is as much as the increase in price, but when you buy an organic cold pressed coconut oil it hasn't been heated and no chemicals have been used to extract the oil so you know you are getting the good stuff for your skin.  You can buy microfibre cloths from Bunnings if you like, I do as they sell them in bulk packs.  I buy a pack of 10 every few months.  And you can buy Phyts by clicking on the Creme Ylang image or through the following link;

I hope this has been helpful for you, let me know how you go with it, you will have to commit to it for at least 6 weeks to get some true results, I look forward to hearing your success stories!

Eating Humble Pie

Yikes!  I am so far behind the eight ball it is not funny!  The last 4 weeks are a blur of cooking, planning, flying, working, eating and nowhere near enough sleeping!

Not only did I go to Switzerland with Paul for the world congress on the Alexander Technique, with a crazy 14 hour stop over in Abu Dhabi, spend 3 nights sleeping on someone's floor in Milan, go for a mad day trip to Venice, but I have also been moving Ali Hamylton Cosmetics to Queensland!  Yes, Ali is on her way to the Sunshine State for ever!  Believe me I have been working on this for years so I am extremely happy.

Needless to say that is why I haven't given Kerry her "How To" video on "Smoke Eye perfection", or why I haven't written that skin care blog for Lucy!  Or why I haven't told you all about the All New Total Cover Charlotte!!  Holy Moly, there is so much to share, so… needless to say I am on it!  Expect a few more blogs, emails and some serious Facebook action over the next week or so. (and the odd European Adventure snap)

Thanks in advance for waiting!

The New Starlight Duo Eyeshadow... gorgeous! 

The latest product to grace the Ali Hamylton range is the

"New Starlight Duo
."

These AHC duo's are fantastic because they bring you all the quality that you expect from an Ali eyeshadow with two shades that compliment each other beautifully… all squashed together into the convenience of one little compact!  

This one is the perfect little smoky eye combo, with just a hint of disco to it ;)

Use the shimmery silver as your base, then sexy it up with the charcoal grey.  All you need to do after that is get out your black pencil and line your eyes, then if you are feeling really pro, seal your pencil with some Bulla eyeshadow, it will make you feel sexy like J Lo, and fun like Jessie J.  

If you would like to give this a go, until the end of July, with every Starlight Eyeshadow I will give you a Black pencil and mascara at half price!  That will make your next makeup quick, easy, GORGEOUS and affordable too!

You will get your Starlight, Mascara and pencil for $49.95... that's a saving of $15.90, nothing to be sneezed at this winter :)  Just click on the Buy It Now below and it will all be done for you.

Ali Hamylton's Organic Lip Balm

We finally have our first venture into the realm of organic skin care :)  And what better place to start than a lip balm, considering that the majority of what goes on our lips ends up in our stomach!

Ali's lip balm is made from;


  • Olive Oil - I am pretty sure you will all know what this is.
  • Bee's Wax - And this... makes it smell like honey too.
  • Shea Butter - And this too :)
  • Rhus Verniciflua - In case you didn't know (which I didn't) Rhus Verniciflua Peel Wax is a wax obtained from the peel of the fruit of Rhus Verniciflua... which is also known as the fruit of the Japanese Sumac.
  • Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax - Carnauba wax is extracted from the leaves of the Carnauba palm, Copernicia Cerifera, a plant native to Brazil.
  • Ascorbyl Palmitate - Ascorbyl Palmitate is a compound composed of of Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) and palmitic acid, a naturally occurring fatty acid.
  • Vitamin E
  • Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil - Sunflower Seed Oil


All of these ingredients are certified 100% organic with a NaTrue Certification, so if you wanted you could truly eat it... not that I recommend that! Better to put it on your lips as it is smooth, silky and hydrating with a soft, honey aroma.

AND now for the very best part!  To celebrate this new venture I am going to give it to you to try!  From now til the end of February, spend $60 or more and you will get a free full size sample of the new lip balm (Valued at $9.95).  Easy for me to do because I know you will be hooked for life :)


Happy Shopping to you all,

Back from the Fantasy.

Paul and Me with our long boards.Well we are back from our holiday in the sun... well actually the first part was our holiday in the rain!!  But the sun did come out for the last week so we were happy campers.  As you can see Paul and I got a bit of surfing in, actually I am pretty sure we surfed every day.  We saw dolphins and stingray's leaping through the air, we had good waves, fun days, delicious food, lots of laughs with our children and great friends.  But now it is time to get back to work and have that MakeUp humming through 2011. 

Paul and I want to let you know that we wish you all the happiness that you could ever imagine this year and that laughter is ringing in your ears!  Happy New Year to all.

PS.  Stay tuned for Ali's new, totally organic lip balm! Kxxx

Who is filling your stocking?

The count down to Christmas Day is well and truly upon us! And the question is... what is Santa going to put into your stocking this year?

I don't know about you, but I know that every year Santa miraculously plonks EXACTLY what I want in my stocking, every time!  But as my 5 year old princess said to me yesterday... "he's magic!," so why on earth should I be surprised?!

Now nothing fits better into a stocking than an Ali Hamylton compact, or a lipstick or a pencil or two.  So what I am going to do for "Santa" is gift wrap his little pressie to you for free and if he happens to spend more than $100 on you at ThatMakeUp, I am going to give you an extra little surprise for Christmas from me! (of course this is a present so I am not going to tell you what it is, and it will be wrapped so no peaking, but I am sure you will like it!)

I hope you all have a SUPER Merry Silly Season, and a Wonderful New Year.

Love from
