Limelight by Alcone Part 5: Blenderful

LimeLight is excited to announce the launch of its new non-latex sponge, Blenderful! Half egg-shape, half wedge with great "squeezability," this sponge is super-versatile! Its pointed and angled edges can be used to cover blemishes, reach the corners of the eyes, and cover around the nose; while the flat bottom can be used on larger areas such as the face, neck, and décolletage.

Use the Blenderful to apply our Botanical Foundation, as well as our Perfect Eyeshadows, Blushes, Bronzer, and Pressed Powder. Contact your Beauty Guide or visit limelightbyalcone.com now to be the first to get yours! ‪#‎Blenderful‬

Limelight by Alcone Part 3: The Concealers

I personally don't use concealers that much. I try not to use them on my clients. But I must say, these Waterproof Complete Concealer and Primer is something to check out. 

Made world famous by amazing makeup artist like the late great Kevyn Aucoin these 7 camouflage cream concealers are considered the best professional cover up. From dark circlers to covering tattoos, these are long lasting, waterproof, and opaque yet feels light on the skin. 

I will say, a little goes a long way. The best way to use this is to scoop a little out and place on the back of your hand and then apply to the area to cover. 

Check out these swatches from San Diego Professional Makeup Artist Jennifer Bueno. 

Limelight by Alcone Part 2: The Foundation

I've always been the type that never had a holy grail foundation. I would really like a foundation but then after a few months, I wouldn't so I would move on to the next one. I loved Makeup Forever's Face and Body and I still like it but it's not my holy grail. 

But I do believe I've found my holy grail foundation.

It's Limelight by Alcone's Perfect Coverage Botanical Foundation. This mineral oil Free, Lanolin Oil Free, Fragrance Free creme foundation is so perfect for dry to oily to even sensitive skin. It was developed by world renowned makeup artist Vincent J-R Kehoe. As President and Director of Research Council of Make-up Artist, he designed and produced a foundation that has been the choice of professionals and celebrities for almost a decade. 

We have 12 beautiful shades for $36.00.  And I hear more shades are coming. 

These foundations blend so beautifully on the skin. A little goes a long way. 

I know you're asking "But Nicol, I love my (insert favorite foundation name), what's the difference?"  The difference is, this is a professional brand of foundation that almost every top makeup artist has in their kit. It has 50% more pigment compared to department store brands that have about 12 - 20% pigment that you're use to. That means, a little goes a long way and this will last you a lot longer even with everyday usage. You will get your money worths. 


Check out these swatches from San Deigo professional makeup artist Jennifer Bueno.
