Skin Care, Makeup & Fighting for Our Health Tips

  1. GLOWING SKIN – A skin care routine, weekly masks and facials, oils, moisturizer, sun screen
  2. Mindful of a light hand – a little goes a long ways.
  3. Have more than one look… be able to go from a minimal look, an updated natural look, to a professional or even applying new trends.

I think people think glowing skin is natural but it is not. What you put on your skin, the water you drink, the food you eat, using a routine for cleansing, masks, exfoliation, sun screen it all plays a key role in how your skin looks. As we age we can get a dull finish, drying skin and our natural oils need to be replenished. We need to hydrate our skin twice a day, more in the summer months, and way more than we used too when we were younger. Also, it is important for me to know that the ingredients in my skin care were good for me with no chemicals or toxins. You have to really work on your skin to keep it glowing. Trust me it’s not natural unless you are very young.

I think the most important tip is being mindful of a light hand. I think what happens to many of my customers they have one look and that’s what you see for every day or night. I would have a minimal look for staying at home, a natural look for everyday out and about, and then for those times that you are going to dinner, and other places that you want a more polished look. I think it’s fun to try some of the trends and being mindful what season we are in from summer to fall looks.

PREP is EVERYTHING 

4. I use and recommend our Dew Date Oil, along with an anti-aging product, and a hydration moisturizer. I let the skin care products set for about 5 minutes before you apply your foundation. I do use a primer that is loaded with vitamins and minerals. All of our sprays from primer to finishing are a must if you want to extend your look for more than 16 hours. I never have to touch up and I feel like my look lasts all day long.

5. Your foundation can be applied as a BB cream (sheer) to a full coverage which is a perfect way to take your makeup from a minimal look all the way to a polished look. I love our botanical foundation because you can apply it as sheer as you want to full coverage and being able to cover scars and rosacea. I also use many tones of our concealer for my eye primer, covering redness and purple tones, sun spots and brightening under the eyes. The goal is to hide discoloration and remember a little goes a long ways. To enhance your complexion to one color tone is very flattering and healthy looking. Our concealers are 84% pigment and foundation is 54% most products on the market are between 18 to 22%. Obviously, you have to use more to get the coverage when the pigment isn’t there. That is why our foundation is so special for women over 40 years old. Retails for $36 and lasts from 4 to 6 months. Most of my customers have tried everything from Bare Minerals to high-end foundations and ours truly is one of the top 3 in the entire makeup market and used by professional makeup artists for decades.

6.  FILLING IN THE BROWS We have to fill them in for all looks and my preference is eyeshadow. I think it looks more natural than a pencil and the color options are great. If you have the funds the best procedure that I have had done is microblading. It’s expensive but so worth it. If you are in the UTAH area, my recommendation is Olya, she is the very best in my opinion. Here is a link to her website: UtahMicroblading

7.  I use very little setting powder and it has to be translucent powder so it functions as it should. I don’t put it under my eyes and only on my nose, middle forehead and chin, if at all. 

8.  LOVE our BRONZER I pat it on the top of my hairline on my forehead, under my cheeks for contouring and my jaw line and down the middle of my neck. Our Bronzer can also be used as eyeshadow. If you want a beautiful sun touched bronzer take a look at ours… Retails for $24.

9.  I use a very light blush sometimes in the peach or pink tones depending on my lip color. I apply it on the highest part of my check bone in an upwards motion. I have to admit I go very light on my blush. I know in the past I was applying too much blush and more on the apple of my check. We need to go lighter and apply it higher as we get older.

10.  Mascara is a must and I love our $20 tube. In fact it has been the #1 item every month since I have been retailing LimeLife which is almost 2 years. It’s a fiber building, curls lashes and the more you apply the more bold it looks. So you can take it from a minimal look to a heavy black bold eye.

Tips from taking your makeup to different levels really comes to how you address your foundation, lips and your eyes. Obviously you would go from a sheer to a full coverage, nude to a more colorful lip, and for the eyes creams and light taupe to deep rich colors.

Blending is everything from pressing in your foundation to blending your powders. ALWAYS clean your tools once a week if not more (if you are getting breakouts first place to look is the hygiene of your brushes and tools.)

I tried to rank these in order of importance and hopefully you can look at your skin care and makeup and keep what you love and come shopping with me for some new natural skin care or professional grade makeup. Shop with Jana

Top Mistakes Women Make While Applying Makeup

Thank you for allowing me to SHARE what I have learned over the last 10 months while sharing LimeLight by Alcone Beauty Brand with my customers and friends. XO Jana Jana Clinton Beauty Guide LimeLight by Alcone

In General: The most common mistakes women make when applying makeup are not applying it in the proper light (use a natural light or a lighted makeup mirror) and not using their hands as blending tools, along with good vegan synthetic brushes (that you can use in wax and powder, and only purchase once.)

  1. Not Following a Good Skincare Regime: The best makeup in the world can’t make up for neglected skin. How you prep your skin makes all the difference in how your skin transforms with makeup. Unfortunately, so many of us make the same mistake of applying makeup onto dry skin. Foundation set on dry skin will cause it to flake and will not be able to blend in, instead sitting on top where it looks like you have caked the makeup on. Exfoliate, moisturize and then apply the makeup for best results.
  2. Brow’s – Don’t skimp out on your Brows. Why do we avoid them like we do! Most of us have over plucked our brows that they no longer grow in a shape that is flattering. We have a beautiful eye shadow that allows for a natural look and the top color is #40. It’s a perfect way to have a soft brow look. Shop here http://NaturalLimeLight.com
  3. Wearing the wrong foundation color…This is a good rule to follow that foundation isn’t a bronzer. It’s not designed to change the color of the skin, only to match your skin tone perfectly for that natural glowing look. We don’t want to see our foundation. Tip: Use a translucent no-color powder to seal in the foundation so that it keeps looking fresh throughout the day. No touch up’s and also I always suggest our finishing sprays (10 years younger). Lasts 16 hours! Most women choose too light (a pale) color. Always blend down so that you ensure your face is the same shade as your body as seen on your neck.  If you would like to take our foundation color quiz here http://foundationcolorquiz.com then text me the color and we will make the decision together on the perfect foundation match for you.
  4. Blending is critical to the application. Without blending makeup properly, it’s not going to look natural. This applies to foundation, blush, and eyeshadow, which all need to be blended in a smooth and seamless way. The right tools make this much easier to do. It’s well worth it to invest in an assortment of makeup brushes, and our line carries vegan synthetic brushes (new launch November 15th). Keeping your brushes clean and free from bacteria also improves your finish.
  5. Too much BRONZER. We all love our bronzers! It’s nice for skin to have a healthy glow and the right bronzer can make that happen. However, it’s easy to go too far with bronzer. I have to admit I was using my bronzer all over and even as my blush. Now I know bronzer is best used for contour building the cheek bone, along the hairline, under the chin (remove chins) and under the jaw line.
  6. Mascara – spend time applying especially with our fiber building mascara. As you choose your look from a light natural look to a bold look it all comes down to how much time you spend on applying. Our fiber building mascara is a good example of building the product on your lashes. Also all beauty consultants say to curl your lashes… Don’t miss that step!
  7. Too Much Powder… yes we need it so our makeup lasts but too much takes the glow away. An excessive amount of powder can make the skin look dry and unhealthy. Healthy skin has a natural glow to it too, and too much powder can eliminate that glow and produce an unhealthy and unnatural look. I personally use a smaller brush and strategically apply under eye, eye lids, chin, nose and forehead my T Zone. I only use a small amount then I apply our finishing spray. Perfect combination for long wearing and no touch ups. I always use Must Dew (oil) in addition to my moisturizer to give my skin that healthy glowing look, not oily. It’s just right!
  8. Applying too much blush and wrong placement. I was not blending enough, and I was applying too low and too close to my nose. Now, I’m blending a pretty soft color not Bronzer and placing on my upper cheekbone. Instead of the streak, opt for a slight swirling over the apples, coming just a little on the higher side and emphasizing a fuller face.
  9. Lipstick well-known beauty tip for your lips is applying to your lips with a papaw ointment. After a few minutes, apply your lipstick. The added moisture will ensure your lipstick doesn’t wear off right away and that it glides on much more smoothly and evenly. It’s one of my favorite tips. Be careful with wearing too dark a color. If you want to do the wine or berry colors, as they are in especially in fall, go for something sheer, a lip stain instead of a lipstick.
  10. Wearing Concealer why they are so important. Covers age spots, dark circles and can be used for contouring. Apply with an upside down deep triangle under each eye. Ask me for a tutorial. This is a product I can’t live without because of it’s high pigment and I can also use it as a tinted moisturizer with Must Dew or Skin Therapist… Ask me!
  11. You’re Putting on Too Much Black Eyeliner. As I have aged I have had too give up the black eyeliner. When age starts to hit and the wrinkles begin to show, which of course can happen from the ripe age of 20 in the form of laugh lines that only get deeper by the time you’re 25 and then 30, try to stay away from too black eyeliner and eye pencils. Darker, dramatic eyes appeal to us no matter what the age, though the sparser brows and thinner lashes certainly can cause a problem as the overcompensation of black eyeliner can in turn only draw attention to the parts of the eyes that we’d rather be covering up. A gray or brown eyeshadow would have better effect in reality, while liquid liners at this point can look too heavy. So when we are younger, we should opt for the liquid and then when the aging process starts, switch to a soft shadows with its softer edges and easy-to-apply characteristics. Browns, Grays, Olives are great choices and I can show you how to still have a dramatic eye with the right shadows.
  12. Forgetting to stay hydrated… huge difference in how the skin looks when we are drinking good water. Everyone needs 1/2 your weight in ounces in water… You can tell if your skin is hydrated.
  13. Forgetting  Sun Screen – Next Summer we are launching a complete line of Sun Screens…
  14. Forgetting to Exfoliate We need too exfoliate, getting rid of the dead skin cells and leaving only a smooth finish on which to draw out our masterpiece. When your skin is grey it’s time to exfoliate. This process should be done at least once a week, but some oily faces tend to like the 3-4 times a week during the shower regime, with the hot water opening up the pores for a deeper clean and then a cool water splashing to seal the clean in. Try our Skin Polish or Mask of Zen Amazing Products that Exfoliate… Shop http://NaturalLimeLight.com
  15. Keeping our Brushes Clean – I now clean my brushes almost daily. Dirty brushes leads too not-so-fresh looks and even major breakouts if you’re not careful. Tons of bacteria can be hiding in your brushes.
  16. Did You Know You Should Be Changing Your Makeup Seasonally? Forget that! Most of us use the same makeup for years on end. It’s prudent to change your mascara every 6 months for sure, but the rest normally lasts a long while.  Make a complimentary appointment for each season and update your look… send email to naturallytransformedskin@gmail.com or jana.clinton@gmail.com and let’s keep you updated and your skin looking beautiful!
  17. Watching a few videos on our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/groups/beautyreveal/ is a great way to stay current. I love sharing these tips and techniques and using a pro grade makeup and natural skin care has made all the difference for me and my personal clients.

I have skin care samples, catalogs, and mini makeover sessions available. Let me know if you would like to have a set sent to you…or make an appointment!

I am a Sales Rep for Limelight by Alcone, based in NYC. My personal experience with these products have changed my life. I have watched my skin become healthier and giving me a natural glow. I have listed my top 10 items that I use daily and over the last few months I have also added One Drop Wonder, which is a natural UV Protection, Repairs Skin, and ODW is a carrier oil. I only use it in the morning and I do use it last because it will activate all the other ingredients and drive all skin care products in deeper.

I will be 58 in December and I have wondered between several brands from opening to high-end over the last few decades and also used Botox when I turned 50. I have not used Botox since November of last year, just prior to starting with Limelight products. I was a consumer first and soon realized that I needed to be a part of this company. My background in retail/wholesale for 25 years gave me the confidence that these products were the real deal. The dramatic results with the value retail pricing allowed me to open up to a direct sales company. The best part was our leadership and CEO is family and they made the opportunity worth my time. Now, it was about helping women get the same results that I experienced, either as a customer or as a sales rep.

Why I become a sales rep with Limelight by Alcone 

1) The membership kit was only $164 and I received $330 worth of skin care and professional makeup. I would spend that on one shopping trip at Ulta.
