We often get asked – where do I start on this enlightened beauty journey? And it can be tricky knowing what to add to your collection first, let alone knowing what to add next.
From traditional techniques to a makeup bag full of half-used products, the transition to clean beauty is a journey. When people are looking to make the switch to clean, there are certain products we recommend starting with as you transition into a new way of makeup.
Check these Aleph essentials off as you go and find out which products you might have missed in your collection.
Our best seller, Concealer/Foundation is the first step to becoming an Aleph Beauty.
When moving away from traditional products, the first thing to think about is what product you use most, most of the time. Not only is foundation one of the first makeup products that come to mind, but it also covers the largest surface area of the skin.
Considering daily application of foundation is likely to sit on the skin for 8 hours, if not longer, foundations that are formulated with nasties could contribute to your body’s toxic load and be detrimental to the health of your skin.
Formulated with actives which help to improve the appearance of the skin today and over time, Aleph Concealer/Foundation is packed with natural, skin-benefiting ingredients to nourish skin throughout daily makeup wear.

2. Mixing Tool
Double-take. Who knew this silver spatula was so crucial to the application of Aleph? The Mixing Tool has been specially designed to pair perfectly with all Aleph products to allow for the most precise and hygienic application.
Use the Mixing Tool to decant product from the pot and onto the hand. This ensures that you only decant the exact amount needed and makes it easier to mix products together. Aleph is designed to bring fun and creativity back into everyday makeup, so start playing with different colours and combinations.
3. Diffuser Brush
The second essential tool on the list for precise makeup application. This brush is designed to go hand-in-hand with Concealer/Foundation for a quick and easy, even coverage. Together, the Mixing Tool and Diffuser Brush help to get more mileage out of your Aleph products.
The fine ends of the densely packed Diffuser Brush buff product into every nook and cranny of the skin to create a flawless finish. Decant product onto the back of the hand and pick-up the slightest amount with the Diffuser Brush. This prevents excess product seeping into the brush and ultimately washing down the drain.
One of the later additions to the Aleph Beauty collection – Serum/Primer is both a makeup and skincare essential.
This prep product leaves skin silky smooth and strengthens the staying power of pigment for long-lasting coverage. Fresh upon applying and quickly absorbed into the skin, Serum/Primer is a multi-tasking time-saver.
Although it is a light-weight serum, it is packed with potent active ingredients that penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. The deeply nourishing formula may even replace the need for moisturiser, further streamlining your morning routine.
Serum/Primer also provides more versatility when mixing products – mix with Concealer/Foundation for a BB cream effect or mix with Radiance ~ Moon for a glowing base or Radiance ~ Sun for an instant bronze.
5. Cheek/Lip Tint
Time to even out the canvas – when applying Concealer/Foundation to the skin, we can’t forget to restore our natural colouring for a healthy, glowing complexion.
Aleph Cheek/Lip Tints are highly pigmented so a little goes a long way, giving you the choice of a sheered out cheek tint or a high impact lip colour. The compact pots are also perfect for on-the-go with nourishing ingredients that condition the lips each time you touch-up.
With eight Cheek/Lip Tints to choose from, we can help recommend which colour will complement your complexion and suggest which tint to start with. Or if you’ve already found your favourite, try using Cheek/Lip Tint ~ Ascend mixed with Concealer/Foundation to colour correct dark under eyes. Or Cheek/Lip Tint ~ Terra for a soft contour and added definition.
It’s hard to believe that Radiance marks the last on the list, especially as this product is the perfect alchemy to transform your makeup.
Used on the cheeks, lips and eyes, mixed with Concealer/Foundation or Serum/Primer, Radiance is formulated for maximum versatility. With only two to choose from, why not have both?
Radiance ~ Moon adds a stunning champagne coloured glow to the high points of the face, drawing light into the eyes and reflecting out for luminescence. Radiance ~ Sun creates a beautiful bronze effect to add a shimmer of colour to the cheeks and eyes or to complement a tan. Both can be used on the lips to add another dimension and create a unique lip look.
