Art of Making up Actors
Faces A Veteran Be-
How Young Faces rue Mndo to Loot
Old or to RoBemblo Those of tbo
Dead Building up Nose a
New York Sun.
A man , \rhoo face was crcasod by
iumunurnblo expressive lines , loaned
with studied nrgligonco against a post
on Union Square nnd gazed at passers
by with an air of legitimate nnd wall
bred interest. IIo had a strikingly
"professional" look nnd wore his
clothes , which wcro ultra-fashionable
in ' 77 , with n jaunty cnroloesncss that
ignored the whitened reams nnd denied
the shining back. Ilis tall silk hat
was tipped at an tingle over his oycs.
11 o looked contented and loquacious ,
and very much like an nctor. Proa-
ontly , when an acquaintance passed ho
coughed , nodded rapidly , looked ex
tremely waggish nnd naicl :
"Ah , there ! What arc you up to ,
you rascal ? How d * do ? "
"Why , hullo , Billy 1 When did you
got in } "
"Just now , my boy. "
"How was the working ? ' '
"Ah , there , you raacaU" nnd Hilly
burst into n broad and moaning smile ,
and gently shook his head. Ilis friend
went on , and ho turned to the repor
ter nnd said , in n lull , round , oratorl-
oil tone :
"Would you oblige mo with a light ,
sir ? Thank you. The boys will linvo
their little jokes , you know the ras
cals. The obvious meaning from his
question was that I had walked in.
Our combination went to pieces in
Ohio , but wo nil got hero comfortably ,
thogh wo loft many other wricks be
hind. The number oi busted com
panies between hero and the ono-night
towna of Onio would draw tears from
n cast-iron Sbylock. However , I'm
back , nnd I toll you , sir , it docs mo
good'to ' Ijok at Broadway again. "
"Yes : the spring fashions make it
"It isn't the fashion ; its the faces.
To my mind it is the most absorbing
study in the world that of men's
faces. You ace , the thing has moro
interest for mo than for the run of
men oren in my profession , because
I'm enthusiast in n certain senso.
I belone to the time when the study
and make-up of faces was mighty im
portant in the theatrical line. It
wasn't such a long time ago , either ;
but the times have changedaincothen ,
until now there seems to be almoat no
effort at all to make up and look your
parr. I never saw this moro amazing
ly apparent than when I got in last
night. I went in to 'Odette' at Daly V ,
and naw Harry Pitt , who is an actor
of experience , slap the audience , so to
speak , sqiuro in the face. In the first
act he is the injured husband and
father , and looks about forty-two years'
old. By the time the next act is
reached fifteen years are supposed to
have elapsed , which were full of bit
terness and torture to him ; but ho
comes bouncing on the stage , looking
about forty , instead of fifty-sevon
joara old. Of course all the unities
are jarred , and the piece intrinsically
injured , and simnly because he wasn't
made up. The vice is spreading. Ac-
tora won't diaguiao their good looks fern
n part. Does John MtOullough's Vir-
pinius look like an aged Roman father ?
No ; ho looks like what ho is , a mag
nificently matured man in the pnmo
of life. Lsstcr Wallack never makes
up or shaves cff his darling moustache ,
no rnatter what the part , and Toarlo
is always Ttarlo. "
"It must bo a great deal of trouble
to'mako up everv night. "
"Ah , but , mo boy , look nt the re
sult 1 Go d wn to the Thalia Theatre ,
where they still'do it , and if only five
years.lwyo olaped between the acts ,
BCO how it is shown on every face on
the fitatje. "
' It is difficult to mnko up well , is
it not ? "
"Well , no , " said the actor , lighting
a fresh cigar and assuming a moro
confidential poaej "tho rules nro sim
ple enough , and with a little practice ,
alunst any amateur could Jcarn to
make-up artistioilly if ho has any eye
for effect. Somoiiaits ' , like Rumoo ,
Charles Surface , 'Sidney Darroll and
Claude Dttlmotto , requires very little
make-up t < fr a young and good-looking
actor. Thofaco , and neck should bo
thoroughly covered with white pow
der , and the cheek bones and chin
lightly touched with rouge , which
should not bo too rod. Than , as the
lover ought to look handsome , ho
should draw a iino black line under
his lower eyelashes with camel hair
brush and burnt amber. This makes
the eyes brilliant. I'm fluro it isn't
much trouble to make up that way. "
"Other charaotora are harder ,
"Oh , immeasurably BO. But to
make a rrwturcr man , like Casjio ,
lago , Morcutio , John Mildmay , or
Uuwkuley , it requires only a little
moro work. After the actor has laid
on the powder and rouged his face
pretty heayliy ho must take his
brush and limber and trace some lines
from the outer corners of his eyes ,
and other lines down toward the
corners of the mouth from the noso.
In short , ho must make the crow's
feet that are visible in all mmi who
have lived over thirty yeara in this
tantalizing world of ours. Then the
chin should bo touched with a little
blue powder , which makes it look as
if recently shaved. Theao precau
tions will make the most juvenile face
look mature. If ho has to go further ,
and look like old ago , as in such characters -
actors in Lear , Virginius for , as I
said before , Yirginiua was an old man
Richelieu , Sir 1'oter Teazle , and BO
on , moro work is necessary. Heavy
fatso oyobroiva must bo pasted on , and
the eye hollow darkened and fairly
crowded with lines. Wrinkles must
bo painted across the forehead , fur-
ro-ya down the checks , downward
lines from the corners of tlu mouth ,
and ( very important ) three or four
heavy wrinkles painted around the
neck to give it the shrivelled appearance -
anco common to old ago. The hollow
over the upper lip should bo darkened ,
and also the hollow under the lower
lip , This gives the mouth-iho pinched
and toothless look. A littlopowdored
antimony on the cheeks makes thorn
look fallen in and shrunken. Then
tone the face down with n delicate
coating of p arl powder and you'll
Imvo its old a looking man as you'd
cnro to sce < "
"How does it nil fool ? "
"At Grsl yonr fncc fools tightened ,
and the muscles don t play oft } but
nftcr n few grimaces it comes all right.
It's a great relief to got it oir , hotr-
over , aflor three hours' work. "
"It must caiuo rather mournful
forecasts when n man looks on his
own face made up for the ago of say
eighty years ? "
" .Not so bad ns when ho makes up
for a corpse , however. I'll never forgot -
got the first glnnco I had nt my face
after it had boon made up for Uaaton's
death scone , when plaving the 'Man
in the Iron Mask * in ' 02. It positive
ly appalled mo , sir , nnd I lay awake
nil that night thinking of it , and
dream * ! of myself in n cnlliu for n
month nf tor wards. "
"How ia it done ? "
"Well , it varies slightly. You BOO
such characters na Lear , Virginia ,
Werner nnd Beverly nro bolero the
audience some time before they actu
ally die , nnd therefore their faces can't
1u mndo so very corpse like ; but
Tatthias , in 'Tho Bolls , ' Louis XL ,
Goaton nnd Danny Man nru discover
ed dying when the scene opuns or nro
brought in dead , so that their faces
can be made extreme. For iho liut
njrics the f : < co nnd neck should bo
spread with prepared white ,
and afterward touched up with
Dutch pink to give it n livid hue in
place. Then put n deep shading oi
powdered antimony under the eye
brows nnd well into the hollow of the
tyo , on the checks , throat nnd temples.
This is very clFectivo , as it gives the
face that dreadfully cunkou appear
ance nR in death. The sides of the
nose and over the upper lip should
also be darkened and the lips powder
ed blue. Then the face will look
about as dead as it would three hourr
after n real death. "
"In iho make up of grotetquo faces
do they use false noses and chins ? "
"Very rarely. Usually the method
is to stick some-wool on the nose with
gum and mould it in whatever shape
you will ; then powder and paint it as
you would the natural nose for gro
tesque or comedy parts. Paste is put
on with Rum , instead of wool , some-
times. Clowns have to encase them
selves fairly with whiting , and they
find this trouble enough without build
ing up nosca or checks. Grotesque
artists have to work hard with thuir
faces as a rule , but they often are re-1
paid by discovering neat points.
Many of our best Du'ch and Irish
comedians ere their first lift to a
lucky made-up. "
"I suppose there are types for the
representation of different national- !
"Well , n gentleman is usually made
up the same , no matter whore ho may
be supposed to belong , but the carica
ture it * usually onu of the well-known
make-ups. A Frenchman has to bo
powdered with dark rouge , and has
his eyebrows blackened with Indian
ink. All dark characters , as mulattoes -
toes , creoles , Spaniards and so on , , are
done with whiting and dark rouge ,
with plenty of burnt cork and um
"Is tnuch work necessary on the
hands ? "
"In witches it is of throat impor
tance that the hands and arms should
be skinny and bony. This is usually
done by a liberal pondering of Dutch
pink , and painting in between the
knuckles with burnt umbar. Painting
between the knuckles , you see , rnaEb's
them look largo are bony. But this
sounds u good deal like ancient history
now , does it not ? The art is falling
into disuse , me boy , and I've no'doubt
but that the timo'a not far : ° ff when
wo shall havoyoungsters playing old
men with signs on their back reading ,
'Please sir I'm old '
, , eighty yeara ,
while their faces are as fresh as
daisies , "
'To what do you attribute this
tendency ? "
"Lizincss. The theatrical ago of
to day IK n profound wonder to mo.
The entire profession wanto to stir.
An actor plnyu old men now simply
for n living , while ho matures lib plans
for his contemplated starring tour.
An actress doca old women heavies , or
juveniles , only until she can find a
capitalist who will enable her to star ,
and none of them seem to take any
pride in the minor parts. Honcothoy
don't _ take the trouble to make up
artistically , and the stage is robbed of
its chief charm realism. "
Ho buttoned his coat with great
nicety , tipped his hat a trifle further
forward , and , after a hearty hand
shake , loft the .reporter and strode
jauntily up Broadway , his shining hat
bobbing w'th automatic regularity
above the Easter bonnets , until lost to
view in the crowd ,
