In 2016-2017 the multi-Tony and Grammy winner Patti LuPone added an extraordinary role to her already stellar career: she performed as Helena Rubinstein in the musical War Paint, based on the 2004 book by Lindy Woodhead which chronicled the long-time rivalry between beauty enterpreneurs Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden.
This photoshoot by Lauren Klain Carton was published on Vulture to illustrate an interview she had with Jason McHenry: it features backstage pictures, which mean dressing room pictures, which mean cosmetics!
The first products I’ve identified are Take the Day Off, a make-up remover by Clinique, and T. N. Dickinson’s Witch Hazel astringent.
And now the make-up. The products up front are by Make Up For Ever – the super matte loose powder in the round plastic pot and the high-definition pressed powder in the black compact.
The white-cap bottle on the left is MAC 2-in-1 tinted serum from the Lightful C collection.
On the right side of the table there are Make Up For Ever Brow Gel tinted brow groomer, BeneFit Roller Lash mascara, Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow eyeshadow crayon, Aqua Lip lip liner and Rouge Artist Intense lipstick. There’s also a MAC Pro Longwear Fluidline eye liner.
The picture above also includes a bottle of MAC Studio face and body foundation.
This shot is great: LuPone in full Rubinstein attire, ready to step on stage. The product I’ve spotted here is Schwarzkopf Professional Osis+ hairspray.
