Bet you’ve never been to Alcone?

Makeup artists in the know flock to Alcone to stock their makeup kits for fashion/beauty photo shoots and for specialty makeup effects/prosthetics like scars and blood for movies and TV. Started in 1950 as a pharmacy that also sold cosmetics and false eyelashes to Broadway showgirls and starlettes, their philosophy is to find the best makeup products from around the world and offer them at affordable prices so everyone (not just the rich and fabulous) will benefit. Goods include makeup brands they consider best picks plus Alcone’s own, technical tools, how to instruction, free samples and more. Alcone, 322 West 49th street, or shop online at alcone.com
