What is Professional Makeup? Why is it different?
In order to give a fair pro makeup review of LimeLife by Alcone, you need to know what professional makeup is and what the BEST foundation is.
You’ve probably seen it on runway models, in magazines, news anchors on TV or celebrities in movies.
You may have even seen it on performers in a Broadway or Las Vegas show.
If you’ve seen my profile photo here or on Facebook/Pinterest/Instagram then you’ve most definitely seen it!
Professional makeup is something we see every day and likely don’t think twice about, but it is perfectly suitable for use every day on the “ordinary” stay-at-home-mom/career woman and wanna-be-celebrities alike! In fact, if you use makeup every day, you SHOULD use professional-grade makeup. This pro makeup review of LimeLife by Alcone and the Perfect Foundation will explain it all.
Professional makeup: is higher quality, lasts longer and requires fewer touch-ups than drugstore brands and even higher-end brands from the mall. Any makeup of this caliber will have more pigments (actual color) than filler ingredients. Foundation is usually the first/main product examined when determining a brand’s “professional makeup” credibility. As an example, most liquid foundations on the market have between 18-23% pigment to liquid ratios whereas theatrical and amateur production foundations average a ratio around a 30-35% pigment to waxes/oils. The best foundation has the highest amount of pigment to filler ratio for versatility, more even blending, and the best-staying power.

How can LimeLife by Alcone professional makeup save you time and money? More pigments.
LimeLife by Alcone’s Perfect Foundation has a pigment to ingredients ratio of 50%. That’s at least 15% MORE than theatrical foundations used in shows/movies. It is vegan, has no perfumes, lanolin, petrolatum nor mineral oil like most other brands; because of this, it’s less likely to trigger allergies, breakouts or give you excess shine. It’s also cruelty-free (even better, Leaping Bunny Certified), gluten-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, soy-free and corn-free. The company has recently developed a paraben-free formula and it’s currently exclusive to LimeLife by Alcone customers! Woohoo! Would you agree this is the best foundation?

Best foundation for sensitive or problematic skin conditions.
Many individuals who have sensitive skin, acne/scars, rosacea and eczema favor LimeLife’s Perfect Foundation, even over higher-end brands. These brands often have questionable ingredients or simply cost too much for what it offers (typically less pigment or less product). I used a powder foundation for years and it didn’t come close to the amount of coverage this foundation gives. I also tend to get hormonal acne (I have endometriosis) and scar easily; the marks don’t fade for a long time, so coverage is important to me. LimeLife by Alcone’s Perfect Foundation does not have lanolins, petrolatum nor mineral oils and will not clog your pores, so that means you’ll spend less product trying to cover up blemishes and you get to enjoy nicer skin! It’s truly the BEST out there.
Now with the NEW Dynamic by Danessa Myricks collection in the line, even those with the deepest skin tones will benefit from LimeLife by Alcone’s Perfect Foundation. Read about the amazing, industry-leading collection here.

Perfect Foundation Lasts Longer & There’s No Oxidation
LimeLife by Alcone’s Perfect Foundation also lasts longer. I’m not a regular makeup user as I’m a work-at-home, homeschooling mom, but my foundation pan is barely halfway through and it’s been 8-9 months! Due to having so much pigment, you’ll use significantly less product and will need less effort to maintain your look. A container of the best foundation currently retails for $36. USD and depending on how much coverage you need and how often you use it, it can last between 2-6+ months (even a year). That’s between less than $6 to $18/mo. for one of the world’s best foundations!
Touch-ups are hardly ever required, so no need to waste time re-doing your makeup in the afternoon. Who has extra time for that anyway? Put on your makeup before the kids are up and don’t worry about it for the rest of the day! It’s like instant luxurious sleep/coffee/magic in one product and you’ll look and feel so put together with very little effort.
Are you familiar with oxidation? It’s what happens when something comes into contact with oxygen. Do you notice how some foundation brands look darker on your face after an hour or so? It’s not just “drugstore” brands, even higher-end formulas do this and if you’re fair-skinned, the lightest shade might not be light enough after it oxidizes. Well, LimeLife’s Perfect Foundation stays the same color, hour after hour.
Coverage is Customizable
Having the 50% pigmentation gives you the flexibility to adjust coverage as needed. You’ll save money; forget buying 3 different types of foundation. If you want full coverage, this foundation will take care of that for you. If you need medium or light coverage, a dampened Blenderful Sponge or Classified Brush mixed with a few drops of Dew Date is PERFECT! Want a tinted moisturizer? Mix up a tiny bit with LimeLife by Alcone’s Skin Therapy moisturizer! Need a sunscreen that plays well with makeup? Try the brand new Perfect Sunscreen- not only does it protect, but it’s also a moisturizer and primer too! Mix up a bit of it with the Perfect Foundation and you’ve got the “Perfect” coverage for warmer days or days you want lighter coverage.
The eyeshadows, blushes, and powders are all highly concentrated with pigments as well; a little goes a very long way. Paired with the amazing all-natural skincare in the line, (my first love of the LimeLife by Alcone brand) you’ll need less makeup and feel confident enough to not wear makeup at all! The best foundation is truly not needing any, am I right?
