I was given the opportunity to bring my makeup kit on site to three beautiful triplets that wanted a little pampering for their first junior prom. It started with a trial. The challenge in my mind was to give each of these identical girls a unique look that fell in line with their personalities. A challenging task because I had never met the girls before. Once I met them and their parents in their home and had to quickly assess how I would pull an individual look for each one.
I started with girl with the shortest hair because her look screamed “rocker,” but she clearly didn’t want to have a lot of makeup since she wasn’t very girly. For her I did a smokey brown eye using the Lottie for LimeLight Dream On palette (which she insisted I keep blending to take more off), along with a light cheek and lip (lips with Macaroon Enduring Lip Color, and Faith Signature Lip Gloss on top) and added touches of #6 blush as a pretty highlight.
Next, I moved on to the girl who seemed a little more outgoing. I decided it would be fun to add “Mills” by Lottie from the Dream On palette (@LotStar Instagram) in her crease along with “Lament” which is more of a gold shimmer. This gave her a bold eye to go with her black and white dress. I then did her cheeks with a warm bold blush in #7 which looked brilliant against her skin tone. I showed her lip shades in Candy Apple, Cherry Pie, and #104, and we settled on the true blue red in Cherry Pie. She was a little scared of the boldness of the color but once everyone (including mom) saw that color, everyone agreed it was perfect.
Lastly, I felt compelled to do a subtle but super pretty Instagram look. I did a subtle cat eye using only shadow, and kept most of the shadows in matte shades including mauve and brown. I went back and added “Crystal” from the Dream On palette to her inner eye and just a touch on the center of her lid. I also added “Crystal” to highlight the tops of her cheeks and the cupids bow, and just the tip of the nose. I chose the same cheek color in #7, and then the lightest shade of lip color in “Mia” another Enduring Lip Color by Lottie.
All girls were so impressed with their looks (and mom was too) that I’ll be back to do the look for their big prom day. Pictures are coming soon!
As the weather cools down and the nights stretch out longer, we start thinking about the holidays. This year I’ll be hosting my first (what I hope to be, annual) boutique and Toys for Tots toy drive! Start your holiday shopping early and knock out those hard to shop for family members. We’ll have gifts for babies, kids, parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and even your furry (or feathery, or scaly) family members. Entry is absolutely free, but in the spirit of giving please bring a new, unwrapped toy for donation to Toys for Tots. All of our vendors are donating a portion of their proceeds to Toys for Tots as well. So bring your wallets and help some of the less fortunate have an amazing Christmas this year!

Where would you be without mom? She is that special woman who puts her kids first. She is the person that has nurtured you and unconditionally loved you. Mom is the one that forgives you when you mess up. She has kept your secrets safe when she knows dad’s going to lose it on you. Maybe mom isn’t your birth mom. Maybe she’s your best childhood friend’s mom. Or a step mom. She could also be your mother-in-law. Whoever mom is to you, this May we will honor moms all around the nation and celebrate this special day for her. It’s the day that historically generates the most phone calls – why? Because we know mom is important, and we wouldn’t be here without her.
LimeLight by Alcone has pulled together a limited time, limited quantity special collection just for mom, with a guarantee to deliver directly to mom on time for Mother’s Day. LimeLight wanted a special collection that was not makeup oriented and could pair well with any of our skin care products (just in case mom is already an avid LimeLight client). We call this special Mother’s Day collection The Inspiration Collection and it’s available for pre-sale starting today! Hurry because quantities are limited.
