Without a doubt, every client I work with wants to know about my favorite products and how they can use them too. With the hundreds of cosmetic products on the shelves and in stores, it's no wonder women are confused and overwhelmed. I've even had bridesmaids try to buy my used products right out of my kit!
As a professional, I have carried a variety of different products in my kit from various brands -high end, professional and even some drug store brands that really do the job. The thing is, what works for getting the job done, isn't always good for the everyday use. Then there are the department store brands, lots of great products -also high price points and you're paying for more than what you might actually be getting. For four years I have had the advantage of working with a brand of makeup and skincare that came from a professional makeup retailer that has supplied the fashion and production industry with trusted products since the 1950's.
After slowly retailing lip products to my clients and personally falling in love with their natural and organically derived skincare, I now only use it in my makeup kit. From bridal to dance performance and everyday wear, it has not let me down.
Since I began as an artist, I have searched for brands that are not only of the best quality but also strive to be socially responsible. There is a lot of waste with packaging cosmetics and many are filled with chemicals and unnecessary ingredients.
I was so thrilled when NYC based retailer, Alcone, decided to come out with their own line of professional makeup and organic, chemical free skincare that I can offer my clients. Alcone has been selling professional makeup to production companies and celebrities and their artists since the 1950's. This family owned business has seen hundreds of brands and they know the best products on the market. After years of seeing artists asking to come up with a way to sell the same makeup directly to their clients, Alcone decided to create their own line by partnering with some of the top professional cosmetic companies in the industry.
This beautiful line of cosmetics, LimeLife by Alcone, now offers consumers the opportunity to utilize professional grade, vegan, makeup with biodegradable packaging, and customizable palettes. LimeLight also created a fabulous line of organic, chemical free skincare. Both lines are cruelty free. I am so excited by the quality of these products and that I finally have something I feel truly proud to represent and offer my clients to take home with them.
