Alcone NYC is where all the professional makeup artists go to get their goodies, whether prosthetics or powder. The shop carries unusual stuff like neck-lifting kits (the cheapest face-lift around) as well as your everyday eye shadows (only they’re $6 instead of $16). You can find the best eyelashes to flutter and entice for $2.75 a pop. Alcone has a great selection of products, but one of the best benefits of shopping there is that all of the associates are real working makeup artists with knowledge of all the trade secrets. Talking to an Alcone artist is like taking a class, and she will always point you in the right direction.
