“Makeup techniques ranged from prosthetics to out-of-the-kit aging products like Bluebird FX Stipple,” explains Williams, who was also head of makeup at Hulu’s Pam & Tommy. “Skin Illustrator palettes have been our most used product in prosthetics.” To mimic Angelyne’s porcelain complexion, Biscoe used foundation by French cosmetics brand Le Maquillage, Chantecaille Future Skin, Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer, and Clé De Peau Translucent Setting Powder, which Biscoe calls “the best.”
Anastasia Beverly Hills’ now-discontinued Alyssa Edwards eyeshadow palette was used for her Technicolor eye makeup, while Paula Dorf’s Baby Eyes pencil was applied to Rossum’s waterline to make her eyes appear larger. Kate Tokyo’s felt-tip eyeliner was “up, down, or wobbly depending on the decade,” says Biscoe, adding, “it never lasts and never runs.” You can use the felt tip to draw a very precise line.” The brows were created using Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duos and some bleach. “Emmy bleached her brows to the lightest blonde to match her skin tone and make them invisible. That way we could shape them or color them with powder either red, blonde or black depending on the time period without having to use tweezers,” adds Biscoe.
While there isn’t much information on what specific products the real Angelyne uses (though she sells her own brand of pink lipstick for $60), Biscoe did find a photo of her applying a specific lip liner that she uses could use for show. “It’s a lip liner from Stein called Lake that I still have,” she says, describing it as “an old classic lip liner that’s really hard to come by, I don’t know if that company is still in business.” Besides Stein’s liner also used Kevyn Aucoin’s The Flesh Tone Lip Pencil in Bloodroses, which always applies “smooth and creamy,” – without blending – to line Angelyne’s heavily defined, heart-shaped mouth. Other lip products included L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Last Lip Color in Infallible Red for Angelyne ’70s, while the brand’s Mesmerizing Merlot shade, along with Maybelline New York Super Stay 24 Super Impact Lip Color in Eternal Cherry for the scenes, that took place worked in the 80s and 90s. The modern version of Angelyne appropriately wore Maybelline New York Superstay in Pink Goes On. “The long-wearing lip colors were so useful because they gave us one less thing to touch up when there was so much prosthetic work going on,” says Biscoe.
Creating Angelyne’s Abundant Fortune
“There isn’t a look that she doesn’t wear some kind of prosthetics, whether it’s a nose or a combination of a nose and breasts and cheeks. She’s always busy,” explains Van Dyke, describing her work Angeline as “kind of a makeup artist bucket list job.” He goes on to say that Rossum was “entirely covered in prosthetics” and that the “palms” were the only visible parts of her that were real. “She had a choker that rises under her chin, encircling her entire neck, collarbone and breasts, then below the bust line and sort of ending in the armpit. she has a chin [prosthetic]Cheeks, a prosthetic upper lip, prosthetic noses and bridge of the nose, forehead, polka dots on their lids, prosthetic earlobes, arms and hands.” Biscoe says the crew would try to keep a fan for Rossum on a hot day, but it was pointless because the air didn’t hit her real skin.
