The color is a dark purple with a more blue tint than a modern Ben Nye "Misty Violet".
[[uafcostumeshop_images/histcollection/makeupkits/1/PICT0051|]] [[uafcostumeshop_images/histcollection/makeupkits/1/PICT0054|]] [[uafcostumeshop_images/histcollection/makeupkits/1/PICT0057|]] Greasepaint stick in "Very Pale Flesh Color" a light peachy-pink tone.
[[uafcostumeshop_images/histcollection/makeupkits/1/PICT0056|]] [[uafcostumeshop_images/histcollection/makeupkits/1/PICT0058|]] Stein's Liner sticks in pale blue and Carmine red, similar to a modern lipstick.
The 3 small black sticks appear to be made of commercially rolled paper with a point apparently intended as an applicator for liner colors, (artist's tortillons), they show traces of black and the deep purple on them. The paint brush, which still is covered in black greasepaint appears to be an ordinary and cheap watercolor brush. The larger brush has been destroyed by having some sort of transparent grease left in it and it is unclear how it looked or what it's use was before it died.

Probably a grease based mascara considering the kit contains the heating pan below.
[[uafcostumeshop_images/histcollection/makeupkits/1/PICT0064|]] [[uafcostumeshop_images/histcollection/makeupkits/1/PICT0065|]] Heating pan perhaps for softening black eyelash mascara makeup labeled "M. STEIN'S MAKE-UP NEW YORK" in pressed in letters.

Greasepaint stick in "ruddy old age" color which is as shown, a pretty strong pink base color.

Two large tins, one for Stein's face powder in very pale peach-pink, the other for J. F. Grotta's Knickerbocker cold cream which has separated into a rather repellant oily mess.

Page 9: [[oldkits9|DSCF6034.JPG (3369624 bytes) c. 1900 Stage makeup kit from the U.S., probably for a white male specializing in drunks and bums.]]
Make Up Book for Professionals by F.W. Nack, Chicago, c.1900 a complete facsimile of a copyright expired lithographic pamphlet on stage makeup from around 1900. It shows clear diagrams of the common types of theatre makeup used for portraying popular characters and types on the American stage at that time. These diagrams are not only interesting for the study of the history of stage makeup, but also for the study of various stereotypes of race, gender and age prevalent in stage works of the time, including blackface, yellowface, and redface.
