Limited-Edition Holiday Collection 2020

There’s nothing that compares to the feeling of home. But the home itself can take on so many different meanings. For some, it’s a person or group of people; for others, it’s a city or set of surroundings. It might be the place where your story began or where you go to start a new chapter. As we turn the page to the holiday season, we hope you enjoy the warmth and wonder wherever it feels like home.

Because There’s No Place Like Home….

Wizard of Oz themed Holiday Collection

Wizard of Eyes

Create an endless variety of wicked looks.

Whether you’re feeling curious, adventurous, or even a bit wicked, there’s an Enduring Eyeliner Pencil to match your mood. The gel-based formula glides on smoothly for even application and intense color payoff. The Wizard of Eyes Collection bundles together five duos, for a total of ten long-wear colors!

Check out these beautiful swatches!

Going Places

It’s not about where you go, its who you meet along the way.

They say there’s no place like home, but we think taking the comforts of home to-go is even better. Bundled together for travel, the mini Lemon Drop Hand Sanitizer instantly sanitizes and moisturizes, while the mini Forty Cure Crème and Classic Perfect Balm combat dry, jetlagged skin and lips.

Skin Courage

Feel confident in nothing but your skin.

Find courage from top to tail with two of our best-selling confidence boosters. Apply One Drop Wonder on its own or mixed with your favorite moisturizer to hydrate and smooth facial fine lines and wrinkles. Treat the rest of your skin to Dew Confidence, made with aromatic essential oils to visibly firm and tone.

These are two products that I use every single day without fail! Dew Confidence deserves its own blog post, I’ll write about that soon. It’s provides some incredible results! Check out these before and after!

One Drop Wonder has had its own clinical trial! Look at these results!

Waterproof Makeup Routine

Beach vacations, lake, pools, oh my! How will I not scare everyone with my under eye bags during all these water activities?! Worry no more friend, I’ve got the products for you! This is how I achieve my waterproof makeup looks!

SPF and Primer

This all natural sunblock is also an amazing primer! SPF 30 contains organic and plant based ingredients to moisturize and protect your skin from damage from the sun plus fights the signs of aging!

Concealer

LimeLife by Alcone’s concealer is waterproof…its also a primer and is great to use for an eyeshadow primer. Hey now! The concealers come in 7 different colors.

Check out all these hot babes that have just used waterproof concealer for their complexion!

Concealer 0 – very light. It can be worn on its own as a cream highlight, or mixed with other shades to lighten them

Concealer 1 – Fair, has a yellow undertone to it and works best when covering redness

Concealer 2 – Fair/Medium

Concealer 3 – Medium


Concealer 4 – Darker Medium

Concealer 5 – Light Dark

Concealer 6 – Dark – can also be used for a cream contour for people with lighter skin tones

Eyeliner

This Enduring Eyeliner Pencil is waterproof and wears 24 hours. Plus it goes on as smooth as buttah. Check out this video I made so you can see them in action!

Mascara-

My favorite waterproof mascara is CoverGirl LashBlast Volume. I will add a disclaimer that its almost impossible to get off but……. you wont come out of the water with mascara dripping down your face.

Lips

If you haven’t tried Enduring Lip Colors, you’re really missing out! These liquid lipsticks dry matte and are very long lasting. They are not a stain, you don’t need a special product just to remove it, and it wont dry your lips out. There are 18 colors available.

Here I used Ruby Chocolate Enduring lip color for my lipstick, blush, and eyeshadow! You can see it in action on my Facebook Live. While you’re over there, hit the follow button so you can join me on my makeup tutorial videos!

5 Crucial Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before Joining a Direct Sales Company

Direct sales, multilevel marketing, network marketing… whatever you want to call it, is taking over, and there’s a reason why! People are making money through these companies, in their spare time, as a “side hustle” or they’re working them full time. These companies are no gimmick! 82% of women who make $100K+ per year do it through these home-based businesses.

The business market is changing. With more and more brick and mortar stores closing and shopping from your phone is the new norm, it couldn’t be a better time to take your slice of the online shopping pie.

It seems like everyday, a new company, with a new product comes out of the market. So I’ve compiled a list of five crucial questions to ask yourself before choosing which company you want to represent.

1. Is the industry sustainable?

Whatever the product is that you’re looking into, make sure that it isn’t just a trend. Beauty products, weight loss, oils, patterned leggings, what have you, take an honest look at the products sold and determine if these products will stand the test of time. Trust me, they all won’t.

2. Are the products consumable?

In order to sell products and make money, you need to make sure that the products you offer will eventually run out. The goal is to have a consumable product, meaning your customers try it, love it, and when it’s gone, they want more!

3. Do the products bring your customers value?

Again, playing off the consumable part, your products have to actually work. You want your customers to be repeat customers. Plus if your products don’t work, then you are just ripping people off, and you don’t want to do that!

4. Is the company credible?

With home based businesses becoming ever more popular, lots of new businesses are popping up. You want to make sure you sign up with a company that is going to stick around and also has its sales field’s interests at heart. Do your research and if it’s a company who was just founded and only owns a multilevel marketing company, do some digging on the CEOs. You don’t want to damage your reputation because you decided to represent a company who was unknowingly untrustworthy.

5. Are you required to keep stock of inventory?

This one is a big one and where people can get themselves into trouble. Some companies encourage or require their sales field to purchase products up front, and then find people to buy them. Sometimes people either want to hit promotions in the company, or whatever their reason and they chose to buy lots of stock…only to find out they can’t find anyone to sell it to. One of the benefits of joining a direct sales company is that there’s is usually a small fee to join, sometimes a small monthly fee, but at the end of the day, it is little financial risk. Buying hundreds or thousands of dollars in products up front is NOT what you’re wanting to do. Plus, companies who encourage their sales field to stock inventory, are looking to make money off their salesman, not the clients. That my friends, is a HUGE red flag!

How I answered these questions

In 2017 I decided to join my first direct sales company, LimeLife. LimeLife has been a game changer for so many reasons for me, but all that will have to be on another post. I wanted to give you the example of how I answered these questions for myself before I joined:

1. Is the industry sustainable – The makeup industry is one of the most rock solid sales industries in the world.

2. Are the products consumable – The products offered by LimeLife are professional quality products. That means that they offer higher pigmentation than high-end brands with comparable pricing to those products.

3. Do the products bring customers value – Clients worry less knowing that LimeLife skincare is all natural, and that the makeup is paraben free. The skincare is very effective and the professional cosmetics provide women with more self confidence.

4. Is the company credible – LimeLife was founded by Alcone. Alcone is a staple in the professional cosmetology world. They have been offering movie and theatre cosmetics to industry professionals since the 1950s. When LimeLife was founded, it was the first time that everyday men and women were able to purchase these products.

5. Are you required to keep stock – Absolutely not! It is something corporate warns not to do when you’re a beauty guide. Also, buying stock just to promote within the company is against compliance.

If you have been considering becoming a Beauty Guide with LimeLife by Alcone but have more questions, leave me a comment here, send me an email (address in the contact section) or find me on social media. LimeLife is in the middle of a global expansion so there has never been a better time!
