LimeLight Makeup- The Story of Alcone’s Growth

Did you know that the history of Limelight makeup goes back almost 70 years? Some of you may be thinking how can that be? This family-owned business has been around a lot longer than other makeup lines that we hear about all the time. But let me tell you, that's part of LimeLight's charm.

LimeLight by Alcone

Limelight by Alcone began in 1952 in New York City. It began as a cosmetic company that supplied makeup to the theatre district and every Broadway show you know has surely used Limelight makeup.
