This beautiful portrait of the Supremes (Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson and Diana Ross) was taken in 1965 by photographer Bruce Davidson, who went into the trio’s dressing room and took pictures of them getting ready for a performance.
Florence was holding a Maybelline eye pencil.
Moving to the centre of the table, we can see a bottle of Estee Lauder Youth Dew cologne.
Right in front of the cologne there’s a bottle of Revlon Touch & Glow liquid make-up.
Seeing the iconic squared bottle of Chanel eau de cologne on this table filled me with joy. I wonder who wore it – Mary Wilson (the bottle is standing in front of her) or the others too?
The small bottle next to the Chanel one is Yardley hand cream.
The large jar in front of Diana Ross is Pond’s cold cream, the classic make-up remover that I’ve spotted in films and on real-life dressing table an endless number of times.
Thanks to Kailey for submitting this post and identifying most of the beauty products. Thanks to Ro in the comments for the Youth Dew id.

It looks like Angel Face powder by Chesebrough-Ponds under The Boss! Miss Ross.
Do you mean the white compact near the brocade bag?
What great shots!
A half-full bottle of Youth Dew by Estee Lauder is also visible.
Thank you. It’s the cologne. Lovely bottle.
