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

What are the biggest trends in 2017 for Skin Care

Luminous Complexion is the trend for 2017 …

What this means is that getting the luminous complexion of our dreams has never been easier (or less expensive, for that matter) especially with our Limelight by Alcone Natural Skin Care and Professional Grade Makeup.

1. GREAT SKIN STARTS IN THE GUT.

“Research has shown that the bacteria in your gut interacts with your immune system, which leads to changes in your skin. Harmful bacteria in your gut can lead to inflammation—like redness, acne, and rosacea. I always tell my patients to incorporate foods and drinks that are rich in probiotics, like yogurt, miso soup, sauerkraut, and kombucha. I also recommend taking a supplement. Using a topical probiotic is beneficial, as it offers a protective shield and triggers the production of natural moisturizers in the skin.”

2. GREAT SKIN STARTS WITH DRINKING WATER *MINERAL PREFERRED 

Improves skin complexion … “2017 will be the year of beauty from the inside out.”

3. GREAT SKIN STARTS WITH CLEANING YOUR SKIN WITH PRODUCTS THAT HAVE NO CHEMICALS, NOT CLEAN USING HARSH CHEMICALS.

“New research has shown that the pH of our skin is incredibly delicate, and harsh cleansers strip natural hydrators and barriers of the skin, flaring inflammatory conditions like acne, eczema, and rosacea. The trend seems to be to clean smarter, not clean harsher. All those crazy find-it-in-your-kitchen cleaning techniques on Pinterest? They’ll be replaced by more intelligent cleaning options that are pH balanced and less likely to disrupt the natural normal healthy flora we need on our skin.”

Limelight by Alcone has 11 Skin Care Products that are all natural, chemical free. Our product assortment has 2 Cleansers, 2 moisturizers, 2 Masks, 3 Boosters, and 3 Body Products. Request a catalog from me and we can visit on your skin issues and how you can create luminous glowing skin at any age.

One of our purest skin care products that I want to highlight is our exclusive One Drop Wonder, and its secret is incorporating antioxidant-rich serum to your skin. Take a moment and visit my site and learn about this one ingredient amazing product. We are also listed on the #LeapingBunny site for clean, cruelty free skin care companies. I look forward to being your Beauty Guide and prepping your skin to stay dewy and hydrated to a luminous glow that is your best kept secret to your personal beauty from the inside out.

Much Love,

Jana (949) 929-1733
