About LimeLight Foundation

LimeLight by Alcone's Perfect Foundation is a wax based foundation used by makeup artists around the world. As a professional grade foundation, you'll be amazed at the coverage you get with such a tiny bit of product. This is because our foundation is more pigmented than traditional products. In fact, most foundations have less than 20 percent of color (aka pigment) and LimeLife by Alcone's foundation has over 50 percent.

You may be thinking that sounds great, but not quite sure what it means for you? Well, it means that you use less foundation because just a little bit will give you the color you need. I love this because it means that it saves you money, which is something I'm all about. And using less product also makes the foundation lighter, more natural, and more comfortable to wear.

How to Choose LimeLight Foundation Color

Finding the right foundation color match starts with understanding your skin tone. And more importantly, the undertone. If you are not quite sure how to know what your undertone is, you are not alone. I mean when you talk about pink undertone vs peach undertone it can sometimes be tricky. But don't worry, here's a little trick to help. Think about how your skin reacts in the summer and this can be a clue to understanding your skin tone. Also, looking at the color of your veins can help. Let's take a look at each undertone and the tips for identifying each one. Knowing your undertones is the key to how to choose limelight foundation color.

LimeLight Botanical Foundation For Cool Undertones

If you have skin that burns when you're out in the sun, then you have pink or red undertones. This is also known as having cool undertones. There are a couple of easy steps to determine your skin's undertone. The first is to look at your veins. When you look at your veins, if they look more blue then you have a cool undertone. And, silver jewelry usually looks better on you than gold. The foundation colors that would fit your skin tone are numbers 2 (formerly called Ivory), 24, 4(Olive 1), 5(Olive 2), 6 (Olive 4), 20(DM4), 21(DM5), 31, 22(DM6) and 33.

Perfect Foundation For Neutral Undertones

People with a neutral undertone have a balanced tone. There isn't too much pink or yellow in the skin tone. I like to think of neutral tones as more of a peach tone. Your skin tends to burn at first, but then turns into a tan. Your veins may look either blue or green. And, you can pull off either silver or gold jewelry. It truly is a balanced tone that falls right in the middle.

LimeLife Foundation for Yellow Undertones

The last group of LimeLife foundation colors fall into the yellow category. This category is also referred to as having warm undertones. If your skin has yellow or orange undertones it tans easily. All of the former Shinto shades fall into this category. Skin with yellow undertones has gold, yellow, or orange underneath. Your veins appear blue-green in color and gold is definitely your preferred color when wearing jewelry.

Color Match LimeLight Foundation

I hope seeing all of the pictures and taking our LimeLife foundation quiz helped you find the right foundation shade for you. The quiz also gave you the perfect concealer color that goes well with your foundation color. You can purchase our foundation individually, or in a combo palette with our concealer.

I love this palette because you custom-build it to be perfect for your skin tone. Pick your foundation and then add 2 concealers. I like going with one concealer color that closely matches my foundation and skin tone. I use a second concealer shade that is lighter. A lighter shade is great for applying under your eye, or as an eyeshadow primer. However you build it, you get great value with our Perfect Complexion Palette.
