How to Get Free Makeup and Skincare

At LimeLife we just launched an exciting new program, the LimeLifer Program.

We designed the LimeLifer Customer Appreciation Program to thank you for supporting LimeLife and for helping spread the word about our brand and mission to your friends!

Here’s how the program works:

You get Stars for your support.

Every $1 on LimeLife Product Purchases = 1 Star.

Every Qualified Customer Referral = 40 Stars

A qualified customer is someone who opens a new retail customer account and spends $40 USD or more cumulatively with LimeLife.

As you earn Stars, you progress to new LimeLifer rands and earn more rewards

Here’s how the rewards work:

5% Product Credit Earned:

When you earn 500 Stars, you earn your first rank promotion to Lifer! Ever Star you earn after that will reward you with 5% product credit toward future purchases, rounded to the nearest dollar.

* If you spend $100 USD on LimeLife products at Lifer status, there will be $5 (or 5%) in product credit waiting for you at checkout on your next order!

Shipping Perk:

As a Silver Lifer, you will have access to free flat rate shipping on one order per calendar month. We will then increase the shipping and handling method as your status progresses to Gold Lifer and then Platinum Lifer.

Status Gift:

As a Gold and Platinum Lifer, you will earn exclusive LimeLife merchandise. After you achieve this status, you can add your free gift to your next order.

When you introduce your friends and family to LimeLife, you are introducing them to a family brand that cares about their health and confidence, while also helping your Beauty Guide build his/her business. The LimeLifer Referral Program rewards those acts of kindness!

Here’s how referrals work:

Share the LimeLife products you love with your friends and family. For each first time customer you refer who spends $40 or more on products, you will receive 40 Stars and a $5 product credit to be used on your next order.

What’s more, you will introduce your friends and family to safe, high-quality, professional beauty products they will love and help your Beauty Guide expand their business!

This is a circle of support where everyone wins – which is what being a LimeLifer is all about!

What to earn 20% commission on those referral orders instead of stars? Become a LimeLife Beauty Guide! Check out this post for more perks of being a Beauty Guide.

We have such an amazing community here and my customers mean the world to me! THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH for being such a huge support for my family and I!! I appreciate you more than I could ever express!

As always, if you have any questions, please reach out. I’m more than happy to answer them for you!!

What Eyeshadow Colors to Wear for Your Eye Color

Ever wonder what eyeshadows would be best for your eye color or skin tone? I have the answer from the pros!

Celebrity makeup artists, Danessa Myricks and James Vincent, have teamed up to take the guesswork out of eyeshadow selections for you! We understand how intimidating picking out eyeshadow colors can be in the sea of shades that is available. James and Danessa are officially LimeLife Educators which means that they will help provide LimeLife Beauty Guides and customers with guidance and education about the beauty world. Working on movie sets, theatre, models, and celebrities like Lady Gaga, Reece Witherspoon, these are true pros!

They have curated a 4-well palette for each eye color: brown, hazel, blue, and green. As well as 6 well palettes based on skin tone: light/medium and medium/deep.

What’s even cooler is that Danessa and James have created YouTube videos for us so that we can refer back to, if we need help on shadow placement. Let’s check these palettes out!

Eyeshadow Palette for Brown Eyes:

Includes Shades: 04, 42, 49, 21

Coordinating YouTube Video…

Let’s see what looks some beauties have already come up with!

I love how Felicia used the blue to underline the eye! So pretty!!

And because there are no rules for makeup, lets see this palette on blue eyes!

Eyeshadow Palette for Blue Eyes:

Included Shades: 48, 29, 04, 16

Coordinating YouTube Video…

Check out this palette at work!

I love this palette on brown eyes also! Teena is rocking this look!!

Eyeshadow Palette for Green Eyes:

Included Shades: 33, 46,41, 20

Coordinating Video… Roll that beautiful eyeshadow footage!

I just love seeing what people have done with their palettes!

Another rebel! Just kidding, this palette looks incredible on everyone!!

Eyeshadow Palette for Hazel Eyes:

Coordinating video for this palette…

This palette is so stunning!!

The hazel eyeshadow palette is stunning on all eye colors

Eyeshadow Palettes Based on Skin Tone:

Eyeshadow Palette for Light/Medium:

Includes Shades: 07, 09, 26, 08, 01, 28

Eyeshadow Palette for Medium/Deep

Includes Shades: 34, 02, 05, 08, 09, 29

Special Gift!

If you order any of these preset palettes by the end of August, you will receive a FREE eyeshadow brush! EEKKKK

Available while supplies last. Subject to change to a brush of equal or greater value.

When ordering, don’t forget to throw in a mascara and eyeliner to complete the look!

Edit to Update!!!

LimeLife launched a product that was much needed and it sold out in just a couple of hours!! Because of this, we have created VERY similar palettes in the same color families. You can still achieve your desired looks with these palettes. Instead of selecting one of the preset palettes, you can just start building your own customized palette with the shades you would like! Introducing, Eyeshadow Palettes for Eye Colors 2.0

Again, you can chose whether you want a 4-well or 6-well palette, you just create you own with the shades that you’d like, and the makeup brush will still be included through August!

Important to remember that free shipping starts at $77 and there is a 30 day money back guarantee!

When you check out, be sure to start a customer account. There are rewards that you can earn with every order AND a referral program that I’ll be telling you all about VERY soon! 

If you have any question, please let me know. I’m happy to help! 

P.S. August is my birthday month and to celebrate, I’m doing a super fun giveaway in my Facebook beauty group. Click here to join my group so you can have a chance to win! And while, you’re at it, follow my Facebook page for more beauty tips. If you’re more of an Instagramer, no worries I’m there too

Make today great!

How to Find Your Perfect Foundation Shade

Picking out a foundation shade can be the most nerve wracking part of getting new makeup. Even in the stores it’s hard to tell if the color you see in the bottle will match the color of your skin.

LimeLife by Alcone has the best foundation that I’ve ever tried, and I feel like I’ve tried them all! In fact, many celebrity makeup artists use the same foundation. I’ve written another blog post, foundation 101, where I’ve talked about this before but it’s been a year. We’ve added some new shades so I thought I would make an updated post!

LimeLife brought in professional makeup artist, Danessa Myricks, to help expand our makeup line to be more diverse. With this, came more foundation shades for darker skin tones, so we needed a new quiz. Professional makeup artist to the stars, Kat Aragon, created this incredibly accurate quiz. She’s a genius when it comes to color matching!

Here is the link to the color matching quiz!

When it comes to LimeLife, the names of the foundations can trip people up a little bit. If you have a pink undertone to your skin, you will be in the Olive shades. If you have yellow undertones then you will be in the Shinto line. Here are a few visuals that will help.

Now I’m not going to be able to go a whole makeup post without showing some before and afters 🤪 They’re just so dang good! LimeLife’s Perfect Foundation is 50% pigmented which is more than double most high-end makeup brands. It’s noncomedogenic, which means it won’t clog your pores. It’s truly perfect! Okay so let’s check out these incredible beauty guides that have shared their results with us!

Stunning right?!

Now that you’ve seen the amazingness, take the quiz here and if you still feel unsure, feel free to leave me a message on this post, contact me on Facebook, or Instagram. Include a picture of yourself in natural lighting like this and I can tell you which shade is best for you!

Tips

– When applying your foundation be light handed. The pigment in LimeLife’s foundation is much more than others. A little goes a long way! It’s buildable so feel free to put on a small amount and you can always add more for more coverage.

– I recommend setting foundation with a setting powder. It will help it last longer and give it a more matte finish. If you need a new powder, LimeLife has a great setting powder that is translucent and will work on all skin tones.

– LimeLife has a 30 day money back guarantee, with a super simple return/exchange policy

– Free shipping starting at $77

Ordering

Don’t forget your tools! If you need a new makeup brush, I love the diffuser brush #17. My personal favorite way to apply this foundation is with a damp blenderful.

To order your foundation click the link below!

LimeLife Botanical Wax Foundation

I can’t wait for you to try your new foundation! It’s been a total game changer for me!

Talk to you soon!

November 2019 Amazebox

I haven’t shared an Amazebox reveal in a few months so I thought I would give a look at my latest box! If you don’t know what an Amazebox is, its LimeLife by Alcone’s monthly subscription box. You can read more about it in my blog post here.

One thing I love is each box has its own theme. The theme of the November box was Gold. Even the signature black AmazeBox was turned gold this month, which I thought was a really cute detail. I’m a packaging snob and LimeLife’s packaging is always on point. 👌

Here were the contents of the November box:

I was so excited to see all this goodness in one box! Each box contains a little inspiration card.

And a sticker that coordinates with the theme of the box.

This box also contained a little card about our Brighter Together Foundation. You can read this post to learn more about the foundation.

Lush Mini Powder Brush

Now on to the good stuff! First, this mini powder brush. LimeLife offers a full range of professional makeup brushes. They don’t offer this mini brush but I do think it’s a great representation of their brush line. Often times when you find mini makeup brushes they are low quality and the bristles are thin and sparse. This brush is quite the opposite. I was surprised to see how thick and lush this little brush is. Perfect for throwing it in your travel bag!

Forty Cure Creme

Forty Cure Creme is one of my favorite skincare products! It’s an all natural hand and body cream that contains Tamanu Seed oil. If you haven’t heard of Tamanu Seeds, they’re harvested from “The Forty Cure” tree in Tahiti. It’s like a magic potion when in your skincare and is used to treat wounds, rashes, burns, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dry skin, stretch marks. Like literally 40 things. This is also the only lotion that my daughter with eczema will let me use on her. It heals her up quickly and it doesn’t “burn” her skin like a lot of lotions do. Plus I can use it without worry because it’s harsh chemical free! We always keep Forty Cure Creme in stock at home. I’m thankful for this mini bottle because it’s easy to keep in my bag. While I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they make mini bottle available to purchase, you can get a full size tub here.

Check out some of these before and after of Forty Cure Creme amazingness!

Full Sized Bronzer

Included in my Amazebox was a full sized bronzer. If you’ve been wanting to try makeup from LimeLife, you cannot go wrong with trying one of the blushes or bronzers. They’re all amazing! LimeLife offers 7 different shades of bronzer. I received bronzer #1 in my box which is their original bronzer. It has a touch of shimmer to it. It’s not at all glittery or overly shimmery. It’s very subtle and a beautiful color. There are 2 Shimmer bronzers and 5 Matte bronzers. Here are some swatches to help you decide which shade you want.

Full Sized Masque of Zen

Masque of Zen is an acne fighting mask that contains Montana Clay, Tea Tree Oil, White Carrot Oil, and Cinnamon Bark. These products together fight against the major causes of skin imbalance. This mask helps reduce acne break outs, can be used as an overnight spot treatment, and will improve the health of your skin. For a full regimen for acne prone skin, check out this post. Here are some pics to demonstrate the power of Masque of Zen. All natural skincare that works!

Subscribe to Amazebox

What comes in the Amazebox:

Each box contains at least one full-sized product along with samples and/or travel-sized products for you to try. There will also be included information on why the products are amazing and how to use them. Each box will also include fun additions such as recipes, motivational quotes, stickers, and more!

Each box contains $50-$100 worth of products and costs $38 per month.

You will find the AMAZEBOX under the NEW Tab on my website www.mellissahayes.com It will appear as a product with a subscribe button. See below:
