Paint Cosmetics was masterminded 5 years ago by one of New York’s top stylists and multiple salon owner Richard Rubenstein. Being in the hair industry for over 25 years he saw a growing need for a cosmetic line that catered to salons. His vision was to create a line of products that would be beneficial to salon owners, stylists, makeup artists and clientele alike. A line that was just as amazing in the salon for a makeup application, on location for a photoshoot or on a bride’s special day. But also a line that would be fun, unique and right in line with Richard’s unmistakable New York club scene flair. Paint Cosmetics was born, and it quickly grew with multiple locations in high end salons, spas and beauty schools throughout the New York area. Paint’s strong social media presence and makeup artist following helps the brand continue to grow.
Paint Cosmetic’s extensive product line consists of cruelty and chemical free products that are hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. With Paint Cosmetics you can create a perfect look from start to finish! We carry a full product line for face, eyes, lips and brows.
Our tell-tale makeup counter displays consist of a custom made paint ladder and paint cans, as well as beautifully designed media displays featuring our Paint Cosmetics models, beautified by our Paint Makeup Team artists.
The Paint Makeup Team consists of highly skilled and artistic individuals whose work has appeared with Paint Cosmetics in magazines, on television, on celebrities and for New York City fashion week, as well as many other publicized events.
Paint Cosmetics participates in many fundraising and charity events and loves to give back to the community. We work alongside many charities including The American Cancer Society, where Richard is an executive board member for the Long Island Hospitality Ball which benefits the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, hosted by Alec Baldwin. Paint Cosmetics is also an official sponsor of The World of Pink Breast Cancer Foundation where we sponsor and teach makeup classes for breast cancer patients and survivors.
