// WELCOME TO BRAZEN FAITH, LLC Featuring LIMELIFE BY ALCONE //
Hello and a warm welcome to you from Anchorage, Alaska! I’m Jean Lucas, owner of Brazen Faith, LLC and LimeLife by Alcone Independent Beauty Guide. I’m also a Founding Global Beauty Guide serving clients in Canada, UK, France, Italy and Brazil! My goal is to share all of my knowledge and help people look and feel as bold and beautiful as *their true selves*, and NOT how the world sees fit. Life is too short for anything less. If you feel great, believe you’re taking care of yourself (inside and out), and are helping others in whatever way you can, I’ve done my job!
Skincare and cosmetics can be scary (and have scary ingredients!) but I’m here to show you that it doesn’t have to be. LimeLife by Alcone has taken the guesswork out of it and it’s truly some of the best on the market and improving each day! I’m not a professional makeup artist, but I’m learning from celebrity makeup artists and professionals. I’m also a researcher and know quite a few tricks from over the years. We all have to start somewhere, so have no fear! I’m truly honored to have you here to share this journey together. We all have a little of something to learn and to give- this is a great place for it!
// WHAT’S IN A NAME? //
A name can hold a lot of meaning and history. I chose the name “Brazen Faith” because we all need to be reminded that we can be authentic, bold and brave; to have unwavering faith that we can fearlessly overcome our challenges and serve others in the process. Whether that faith is in God, in yourself, in others or all of the above, the journey is as rewarding and miraculous as you can imagine.
Back in 2007, I was diagnosed with endometriosis. It’s a medical condition (affecting mostly females) that interferes with the natural ability to conceive/carry a baby and can cause severe pain on a daily basis, among other medical and visible issues like bloating and hormonal acne. The majority of the pain I felt was emotional and mental. I was marked “infertile” and over the course of 4+ years, my Mister and I did everything we could to have a baby in our arms- and didn’t. The best doctors in the world told me that I would never have biological children. My body was resistant to drugs and surgery only helped so much. I had miscarried 4 babies. I felt like a failure, broken, unwanted, invisible, and small.
Life moved on and one day, I miraculously found a couple of pink lines on a pregnancy test! I had a relatively uneventful pregnancy and despite my birth plans going out the window and needing an emergency C-section 20mins. after arriving at the hospital, we now have the silliest, most observant and energetic 7yr. old on the block! Our prayers were answered and now his daily prayer is to have siblings; we’re hopeful for that, but are so grateful to have him in our lives. If you’re waiting for your own little person, or resolution in your heart, keep the faith and know I’m praying with you!
I’m sharing my very personal story with you because I want you to have hope. I want you to feel successful, loved, alive and unstoppable. I know that life tends to convince us all too often that we’re imperfect, unloveable, and worthless, but it’s all a lie. I never want to feel like that, or for YOU or your loved ones to feel like that… and I certainly never want my son to see me in that sort of darkness. I want to show him the beauty of life, (despite it being a little broken here and there) but I want it to be on MY terms, not because of our circumstances.
I believe that people are fragile AND strong.
I believe that knowledge is power, and questioning that knowledge is even more powerful.
I believe in taking that leap of (brazen) faith when all you have to stand on is doubt.
I believe something as simple as lipstick, a new hairstyle, a kind act or compliment, a day at the spa/the wilderness, a special piece of jewelry or outfit can make someone feel like a million bucks.
I believe one can be successful and proud of their accomplishments while respecting others who may not have chosen the same route. People are still loveable, no matter their education or profession.
I believe you’re worth more than rubies and diamonds or anything on this world! Don’t let anyone or anything convince you otherwise.
// WHY LIMELIFE? //
I discovered LimeLife by Alcone during a difficult time in my life. It was a time of change; in a matter of moments, family emergencies followed, one after the next. My other business venture had to be put on hold, as I was away from inventory and I needed something to start, to get my mind and myself moving towards freedom. Freedom from inventory, freedom from the mundane household tasks, freedom from the emotional chains that I somehow allowed to imprison me. The culture at LimeLife by Alcone is so different than anything I’ve ever experienced.
I want to be able to call something my own and to live my dream of making a difference in others’ lives while being my own boss; I can do that with LimeLight by Alcone. I dream to not need someone else’s income and I dream to live my life with my double miracle son, fully. I felt led to Homeschool him for Kindergarten and it’s been such a blessing; I want to continue that. (Teachers have a tough job, but having all of those students must be so rewarding!) LimeLife by Alcone is both challenging and fun. I sometimes share that I was voted “Most Likely to Succeed” in high school and although my life is complete with my son, I feel like I can do more for him and for others. LimeLife by Alcone is the BEST tool that will help me do more and be more.
// SKINCARE //
What attracted me first, was the skincare. I needed cleanser/moisturizer, as the 60-day supply of some “other stuff” (with a cancer warning on it!) was running low. (I was desperate, ok- please don’t judge me! LOL I promise not to judge your choices.) Anyway, I was skeptical, as it was a line from a company with 65yrs. of experience in the *cosmetics* industry, but it delivered! I tried so many natural products in the past that weren’t effective and the expensive, chemical-laden products didn’t give me good results. I was so excited about the LimeLight by Alcone products, that I started more research into the company.
I found out that the all-natural skincare line was inspired by a woman named Margaret, who so bravely lost her personal fight with breast cancer. Through LimeLife, she may help others to survive cancer or avoid it altogether. Skincare can reach the bloodstream in under a minute (it’s designed to penetrate into the skin), so if you’re looking to make positive, healthier changes in your beauty routine, skincare is where to put your efforts first.
// COSMETICS //
This line includes the BEST SELLING products from the 65yr. old Alcone Company in New York. These are PROFESSIONAL-grade products only sold to makeup artists working on CELEBRITIES in Hollywood, the runway, Broadway, television and the entertainment industries. Our particular team has a high concentration of professional makeup artists for a reason; they know what works best! In fact, one of my leaders works with celebrities and uses LimeLife on them quite frequently! These are some of the highest quality cosmetics on the market; you end up using less, shorten your beauty routine, and get your money’s worth.
While the makeup line was never intended to be “all-natural” like the skincare line, it is quickly becoming that: entirely cruelty-free, and free from gluten, peanuts, and parabens. The majority of the line is vegan (all should be vegan by the end of the year) and most are free from treenuts, soy, and corn. Our CEOs, Michele and Madison, have pushed manufacturers to remove all of the harmful chemicals that are traditionally in cosmetics. The company continues to replace questionable ones with cleaner, toxic-free ingredients.
// L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE //
Another bonus that I liked? The partnership with L’Occitane en Provence! With this prestigious company’s help, we’re moving on up to GLOBAL expansion. That’s right- our products have been under the scrutiny and standards of THE WORLD. The U.S. isn’t known to have the strictest standards, but Europe? You better believe they’ll be checking our ingredients! Our first country is Canada, next up is the United Kingdom. Do you have a global network of family or friends?
I am amazed each week as I watch the company experience massive growth. Not only are we expanding our market globally, we’re adding products to our line and making a name change! I enrolled in Oct. 2017 when there were 20-21k Beauty Guides and hundreds more enroll every month. The more we grow, the more respect I have for our CEOs. The culture encouraged at LimeLife is one of mutual respect and a level playing-field; respect to our networks by promoting in non-spammy ways, and a general and genuine love for others. I feel right at home as a customer and a Beauty Guide. I hope you’ll get to experience this too!
I’m so honored to have you here. Take care of yourself and give back to others in every way you can. It’s the little things that often count the most. Thanks for learning with me and supporting my small business!
Live with brazen faith. You can be authentic, bold and brave in all that you do. Believe it! I believe in you!

With love and gratitude,
