Artist in Residency: Pati Dubroff’s ‘90s Dream
Welcome to Artist in Residency, our new series that brings the industry's most innovative makeup artists to Rose Inc. for a month of creativity and inspiration. Each week, you'll discover an original look—and the story behind it—created by an artist we love.

The chances of maintaining a career in Hollywood—as an actress, director, makeup artist, or the like—increases exponentially when both feet are planted firmly on the ground. For Pati Dubroff, being ‘down to earth’ isn’t a passing platitude, it’s a lifestyle of yoga and meditation that’s grounded her through 34 years as a professional makeup artist, a feat reserved for only a select few who balance refined talent with emotional perseverance and mental flexibility.

“I'm really lucky that I found it and it found me,” Dubroff says. “There's no way that I could do what I do without the centeredness.” With a storied background working under greats like Francois Nars; a star-studded client roster that includes Margot Robbie, Priyanka Chopra, and Laura Dern; and a gig as a Chanel Makeup Artist, Dubroff is one of the most prolific artists of the time. For these reasons and more, Rose Inc. is delighted to feature Dubroff as this month’s Artist in Residency.

This month, things are personal. Dubroff found inspiration for her residency in a tattoo inked on her wrist: Shapes that form a daily reminder of the elements that keep her grounded. With Earth, Water, Air, and Fire in mind, she dreamt up modern looks, then artfully brought them to life on a first-time model she’s known for 16 years: her daughter, Bianca.

BEHIND THIS LOOK:

The more care that goes into the skin, the less makeup is needed, so Dubroff mimicked her go-to red carpet strategy on Bianca: An intraceuticals oxygen treatment, microcurrent, a sheet mask, and, finally, the Victoria Beckham Augustinus Bader Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturizer on the perimeter of Bianca’s face. “I can do makeup fast,” Dubroff says, “So more and more time gets used for skin prep now.”

Once dewy and hydrated, Dubroff brushed Serge Lutens Spectral L'Impalpable Foundation only where needed, then buffed telltale edges with a small, clean foundation brush. Dubroff then contoured Bianca’s face using Chanel Les Beiges Eau De Teint in Light Deep. “It’s like a liquid tint,” she says, noting that it’s the fastest way to warm up the complexion. For a little color, she dabbed Sunnies Face Airblush in Biscuit onto Bianca’s cheekbones.
