Perfect Lips on Sale

I love a good lipstick. 💋

♥ You too? Well, I’ve got you girl! I’ve found you a sweet sale you seriously can’t miss dropping December 23 – 28 that’s going to get you that perfect lip you’ve been looking for!

♥ Check out LimeLife’s new sale on lippies starting this week!: After you select your choice of one Enduring Lip Liner or Perfect Lip Gloss, you can then add one Perfect Lipstick or Enduring Lip Color for $28 USD/$36 CAD. It’s a savings of $12 USD/$16 CAD!

How to:

First, here’s our Enduring Lip Liners! Pick one of these:

These lipliners are the bomb.com for real as is all of the professional LimeLife makeup and skin care. I. want. it. all. The automatically self-sharpening packaging sharpens the tip with every twist of the cap to create perfectly lined lips every time! Crazy! The semi-matte, high coverage formula lasts 6 hours or more without feathering or transferring and has a lightweight feel.

This liner works equally as a liner, as a chic, matte look on its own or as a long-lasting base for your favorite lipstick or gloss. Whether you’re creating a bright, bold lip or staying understated with neutrals, our 12 highly pigmented shades perfectly complement any lipstick or skin tone. They seriously look gorgeous on. Cruelty free, gluten free, tree nut free, and peanut free. Paraben Free. Leaping Bunny Certified. Vegan. Need!

OR one of our Perfect Lip Gloss’s (ugh, that packaging alone!!):

Years ago, Alcone sold jeweled lip glosses similar to these as a holiday gift. They sold like hot cakes. So when we were looking for packaging for our glosses, we remembered those jeweled containers and how much women loved them. Sometimes, you just need a little sparkle to remind you that life can dazzle! This non-stick formula can be used on its own or on top of your favorite Perfect Lipstick or Enduring Lip Color to add shine and the appearance of healthier, more voluminous lips. These lip glosses are cruelty free, gluten free, tree nut free, peanut free, corn free, and soy free. Paraben Free. Leaping Bunny Certified. Vegan. Hello clean makeup! 17 Shades available! Ok, count me in, 17 times, how about you?!

Then pick a Perfect Lipstick:

Our lipsticks come in two professional formulas, opaque and sheer, so you can change how much color emphasis you want on your lips each day. The Power Pout formula is opaque and highly pigmented while Take A Hint applies sheer for a subtle hint of color that lasts. Apply on its own or after applying Enduring Lip Liner in a coordinating shade to create a longer lasting pout. The sheer, Take A Hint formula can be built in layers to achieve the perfect amount of coverage desired. 16 Shades available! Cruelty free, gluten free, tree nut free, peanut free, corn free, and most are soy free (contact me for list if needed). Paraben Free. Leaping Bunny Certified. Vegan. Yes please!!

OR Enduring Lip Color (or both if you can’t decide)!

Enduring Lip Color is a liquid lipstick that comes in 19 shades! This professional formula applies as a liquid and transforms to a matte, velvety finish with long-lasting, intense, opaque color. Use alone or in combination with other shades to create unique color combinations. This highly pigmented Enduring Lip Color creates the perfect matte lip. The unique formula keeps lips hydrated with a comfortable cushion of richly pigmented colour that applies as a liquid and transforms into a matte, velvety finish. The extreme longwear formula evenly applies intense colour that does not bleed, flake or feather. I love how these pair so well with the Perfect Lipsticks and Lipliners as well! Add a Perfect Lip Gloss on top for some shine!! The shades are to die for! Cruelty free and gluten free. Paraben Free. Leaping Bunny Certified. Vegan. I’ve got my eye on Birthday Cake!

In LimeLife Love: Professional, Organic, Vegan, Makeup + Skin Care

I’m in LimeLife love! 💄

⋆ You’ve been waiting for the news. Well here it is. I’m now sharing beauty products with other women like myself who also want professional and clean skin care and makeup in their lives. I’m now a LimeLife by Alcone Beauty Guide!

⋆ Ok, wait, why LimeLife, why makeup…wait, what’s going on?? I’m so glad you asked! I’ve been looking for a makeup and skin care line to partner with for a couple of months now that is industry-credible, professional, clean, and that also gives back. It had to line up with my mission and goals as a fashion and beauty blogger, and as an entrepreneur with Christian values. I want to give my followers the best products out there, and to be honest, this was not an easy check list to meet! For awhile, I was considering going with another company and then I saw many of the women I was following starting to leave it. I dug a bit deeper and found that some of that companies’ values didn’t seem to line up with mine. That led me back to the drawing board.

⋆ Then I found it! Thanks to a video from my now beauty and business mentor, I saw a company that was industry-respected because they just had great stuff! I had to know more before I decided. LimeLife wasn’t always available to every woman. This family-owned company was founded in 1952, selling stage makeup to starlets out of a small store in New York City. Their products were the pro-makeup used only by makeup artists — you had to be an industry professional to even get your hands on the stuff. Many celebrities have used it and spoken highly of it such as Kim Kardashian and so many others such as Sarah Jessica Parker, the Blue Man Group, Broadway musicals (The Lion King, and the list goes on and on!). It was also made famous to the masses by Oprah a few years ago when she choose the LimeLife by Alcone Riki Mirror as ‘One of Oprah’s Favorite Things’! (Just one of the many LimeLife things on my personal Christmas list this year!). Featured in:

Around the web

LimeLife recently decided to make their products available to everyone just 5 years ago and since 2018 here in Canada. At the heart of their expansion was that makeup artists began to refer their clients to them to learn about their favorite products. LimeLife recognized that same drive, to help people get excellent quality makeup and pursue passions of their own, in so many others, hence LimeLife by Alcone was birthed. If you want to get your hands on this stuff you have to either go to one of their Beauty Guides (me, me, me!!) or go to their store in NYC with a pro makeup artist card.

⋆ So what’s so great about it? First, it not only looks amazing but it’s clean! All LimeLife skin care is Leaping Bunny-certified cruelty-free, organic and chemical-free! Our professional makeup is Leaping Bunny-certified cruelty-free and as natural as possible without sacrificing its performance. I LOVE this. As I age, I’ve come to realize I don’t want to continue to put just any old garbage on my face. I also want to try and slow aging and make my face look as dewy and youthful as possible (the needs definitely change as you hit middle age girls)! I only wish I would have done this earlier, in my 20’s and 30’s, and helped prevent much of the skin damage and aging I’m now seeing in my skin.

Honestly, if all I bought out of this was this lip gloss I would be happy! That packaging! 😍 photo credit: LimeLife by Alcone

⋆ Additionally, all LimeLife packaging can be refilled and when you do so, we make a donation to the ‘Brighter Together Foundation’ to help your good deed go even further. We’ve also partnered with TerraCycle® to offer a free recycling program for the rest of our skin care and makeup packaging. Everything from bottles and tubes to pumps and caps can be mailed in to become raw and reused material! What a bonus for those of us who care about what kind of planet we are living in and leaving to the next generation.

⋆ If you know me, or have been following my business journey over the past 3 years, you know how important it is for me to give back as an entrepreneur. It’s part of the vision and mission of all I do with Trumpet + Tassel and beyond. LimeLife is a ‘soul sister’ or ‘bosom friend’ to what I already do. When you purchase one of our Brighter Together Collections, you help provide entrepreneurial field training and support to women in the world’s most impoverished countries. Come on! Helping women in developing countries find empowering entrepreneurial opportunities so that they can become independent and thrive is definitely a dream of mine coming true!

“We pass 100% of our funding onto our charitable partner, Project Concern International’s (PCI) Women Empowered (WE) Initiative. WE members pool their savings and make loans to one another, and PCI gives the women guidance to start their own successful businesses. Together, we have already helped over 13,000 female entrepreneurs become leaders in their communities.”

⋆ So yes, I’m excited! I’m excited because these products are pro, natural, vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and Leaping Bunny certified. They give back and help women gain credible entrepreneurship. ☑☑☑☑☑☑☑

Boho Love + Self-Care

Rock it.

⋆ That’s what I’ve been trying to do. Rock the quarantine. Rock the depression. Rock the gray hair. Get up, show up, and level up. Ok, ok, some days I don’t want to get up and other days I don’t even get up but I tell you, nothing helps the doldrums more than a fresh face of makeup and some new clothes!

Get up, show up, and level up.

⋆ I should have showed you the ‘before’ photos. Yikes. Prior to this ministry break I was burnt out, tired, unhealthy, and on the verge of letting bitterness take root in my heart. Ladies (and men) don’t let people, or yourself for that matter, tell you that self-care isn’t important or isn’t spiritual enough. It is. You can’t give people anything if you are completely worn out or worse yet, dead. You have a calling here? Take care of your spirit, but also your mind AND body too so you can fulfill it! I’m learning. Self-care is so important.

Now on to outfit deets!

⋆ As you know, I love a good basic tee. This one is from Ardene’s in an XL because I don’t love a cropped top on a 50 year old! I went a little bigger than usual so I would avoid biscuit-tummy hang-out and it also gives me some room for a cute front tuck. If you don’t like skin-tight shirts either then size up. I also love neutral colours, one of which is olive green. I honestly think this shirt was only $6 CDN. Score on this find.

I went a little bigger than usual so I would avoid biscuit-tummy hang-out.

⋆ I have to admit, the faux leather pants look is amazing! I had a pair a year or two ago, before it was cool I guess. They’re too small on me now so I got these ones at Ardene’s. Let me tell you, these leggings are so comfortable, not hot (my prior ones made me so sweaty), and they look fantastic dressed up or down! Don’t want your butt to show? Make sure your tee is longer in the back or pair it with a cardigan!

⋆ Obviously I love my accessories. I don’t think I would have spent the past 3 years handmaking custom jewelry for women if I didn’t. Accessories can really bring an outfit from drab to fab in seconds! I love layering necklaces and bracelets and really showcasing my mood and personality with the pieces I choose. You can too by going classic with a simple gold chain or by going more bold with bright colours or statement accessories. Tassels add that trendy boho look that, so far, doesn’t seem to be going out of style.

⋆ The things that you purchase can even help change the world. 10% of my brand’s income goes to world-wide non-profits that are making a difference in the world. Right now I’m trumpeting The Canadian Cancer Society, just one of the many non-profits that we have given to over the past few years. There are lots of amazing brands out there, jewelry included, that are socially conscious and kingdom-minded. Watch where you spend your money and, when you can, try to partner with businesses that align with your values.

⋆ Now let’s talk makeup. I’ve been wearing makeup since the 7th grade. For real. My sister is 4 years older than me so I had lots of beauty influence and help as a young girl growing up. Over the past few years, I haven’t really taken makeup and beauty stuff too seriously. My biggest requirement in a mascara was that it wouldn’t run when I led worship (come on where’s my church girls at?!) Most days I don’t wear any makeup, especially in the summer, but I LOVE to experiment and create with it! Honest post right here – I got completely addicted to watching YouTube makeup video’s during this quarantine. Yes, I said it. I love watching these amazing women transform themselves from pretty to gorgeous with colour, powder, and creams. It’s just so fascinating and satisfying! If you’re at all creative you probably enjoy it as much as I do or trust me, you will if you watch just one video.

For this look, I used—
  • Rimmel Insta Flawless Primer
  • Stila Hide & Chic Liquid Foundation in Light 3
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Concealer in Porcelain (not recommended)
  • Nars ‘Orgasm’ blush (sorry mom)
  • Maybelline Master Chrome in Molten Gold
  • Physicians Formula Bronze Booster bronzer
  • 3 colours from the 35OM Morphe palette on the eyes with a lighter colour from the Marcelle Quintet quad
  • Ardelle lashes
  • some sort of Rimmel brow liner in Hazel which I still have to change; since my hair is so ashy now it doesn’t work but it’s all I have
  • L’oreal Infallible Eyeliner in black, Rimmel Transparent Powder
  • and a combo of L’oreal 401 and Maybelline 540 on my lips

⋆ I really don’t own that much makeup right now so I’ve been just throwing together whatever I can dig out of my drawer. That being said, since I’ve been doing more fashion and beauty posts (and enjoying those makeup videos), I’m going to be aligning with a professional makeup brand! I haven’t started yet but I can’t wait to introduce y’all to it and to wear it in my upcoming beauty posts! I’ve been trying to find a brand that is professional, excellent quality, good for the skin, helps others, and looks amazing, and I have found it! Watch for upcoming posts to find out more and to see some looks. You’ll even be able to purchase what you like and what I wear as well from me! So exciting!

To me, the essence of truly modern makeup is the freedom to be yourself, to express who you are.

—Francois Nars

Style is something each of us already has, all we need to do is find it.

—Diane von Furstenberg

I love being super–tough, but if I need to put on a dress and do my hair and makeup, I can do that too.

—Elizabeth Rodriguez

⋆ ‘Free-spirited-creative-artsy-rocker-babe’. I didn’t really set out to accomplish that look but this outfit is definitely giving off that vibe! What’s your favorite part of this look and what would you give a try in your own wardrobe? Let me know, I’d love to hear from you! ♥
