Limelight by Alcone Products You Will NeedAs a busy Mama, you want to look put together and not like you were up all night with your baby. One of the most important parts of speeding up your makeup routine is having the right products on hand in an organized work space. Here is what I typically use:
- Limelight by Alcone Waterproof Complete Concealer. As a busy Mama, we all seem to carry some extra "baggage" under the eyes. Cover those bags up quickly with a quick dab of Limelight concealer under each eye.
- Limelight by Alcone Botanical Foundation and Blenderful. Applying Limelight foundation using the Blenderful sponge goes on quick and evenly with just a few swipes.
- Limelight Perfect Pressed Powder. This no-color pressed powder is one of my absolute favorites and is a top pick for make up artists who do high definition television makeup. It is simple and light and makes your skin look flawless and natural in one quick and easy step.
- Limelight by Alcone Enduring Lipcolor is a long lasting liquid lipstick that will stay put for hours. Who has time to reapply lip color while chasing little ones around the house? Have an extra minute? Use these liquid lipsticks alone or as a base layer with the Signature Lip Gloss for a long-lasting look that will not dry out your lips.
- Limelight by Alcone Perfect Mascara. The Perfect Mascara is an inexpensive, ONE step fiber mascara. The mascara contains a buildable formula so you control just how big and bold you want those lashes to look for preschool dropoff. The brush head separates and evenly coats each lash for a perfect application every time!
- Limelight Perfect Bronzer. Create the illusion of sun-kissed, glowing skin with Limelight's Perfect Bronzer. Its natural brown tone flecked with golden shimmer can be used to contour the face or all over to enhance your natural glow.
- Limelight by Alcone Perfect eyeshadows. Create a 4 Well Custom Pallette of neutral eyeshadows that compliment your eye color. Having all of your eyeshadows together in one customizable palette avoids wasting time digging around in your make up drawer for your favorite eyeshadows.
- Limelight by Alcone 10 Years Younger Finishing Spray. As busy Mamas, we just don't have the extra time during the day to think about touching up our makeup. To cut down on makeup touchups and reduce the signs of aging, use the 10 Years Younger makeup setting spray to keep makeup from setting into fine lines and wrinkles...and bags! It also guarantees to prevent makeup from melting or sliding which is essential for all busy Mamas.

Even though you now have all of your basic makeup essentials, sometimes you just need to multi-task and apply your makeup on the go. By keeping all of your makeup handy in your Limelight Cosmetic bag, it's as simple as grab and go. **Tip: Keep an extra cosmetic bag of Limelight essentials in your car just incase you skip your morning makeup routine at home.**
How to Apply Your MakeupNow that we have all of our Limelight by Alcone essential make up supplies in place and organized, let's go through our make up routine in 5 easy steps.
- Apply your concealer first then foundation. Using your Limelight Blenderful does help the foundation go on quick and evenly, saving you time from checking and double-checking your face for foundation lines. To save even more time, only apply the foundation to problem areas.
- Using a large foundation brush, soften your foundation by applying a light layer of Limelight pressed powder. It lightly sets your foundation and takes away any shine.
- Apply a light layer of Limelight's Perfect Bronzer to your cheeks and in other places on your face where the sun would normally hit like your hairline and on each side of your nose.
- Dust a light layer of neutral eye shadow to your eyelids and choose one shade deeper to upper crease and the outer "V" of your eyes to create a quick and easy smoky look. If you have an extra minute, use an angled eye liner brush to rim under your eye lid with the deeper eye shadow shade. Apply one light coat of Limelight's Perfect Mascara. With the fiber's already included in this one-step formula, one coat is sometimes all you need to complete your look.
- Add a quick coat of long wearing Limelight Enduring Lip Color and/or lipgloss. Finish the look with a quick spritz all over your face of the 10 Years Younger Finishing Spray.
