Marc Almond’s Dressing Rooms (2015)

wpid-wp-1438510334498.jpgI’ve got a soft spot for Marc Almond as an artist, but I love his habit of posting pictures of his dressing rooms, too. The one above was taken on July 26th, 2015 at the Sands Centre in Carlisle (Cumbria), where Marc performed with the Jools Holland Band.

The bottle on the shelf is Night Scented Jasmine by Floris, a fragrance with a citrusy opening, floral heart (gardenia, iris, jasmine, lily, mimosa, narcissus, rose and ylang ylang) and a musky base. Thanks to Marc himself for letting me know about the perfume.

There’s the Dior Cannage compact again, plus several MAC pencils and foundation sponge (in the black plastic bag in front of the mirror), Becca Ever-Matte poreless priming perfector and a couple of ecoTools make-up brushes. The 16-pan palette is Kryolan Dermacolor Camouflage Creme.

Thanks to my reader Jessica for the Kryolan id.

  1. Also a big fan of Marc and his dressing room pictures! Since I am one of his “Afternoon Tea” fans, of course I immediately recognized the tea packets and the lovely brown and white Demerara sugar cubes, but I am fascinated that you recognized the brands of makeup pictured as well! How kind of him to let you know what his bottle of fragrance was!

    Great blog post!

    Best wishes,

    1. Hi Betty!
      Thank you so much for your lovely comment.
      You know, I’m not a tea expert, but I recognized the brand of the white and aqua green tea box on the left (Yogi Tea) because I use the same. I have no idea what the red box is, nor I knew about the Demerara sugar cubes, but it’s all so fascinating, isn’t it?
      Marc was super-kind to take some time to read my post and let me know about the Floris perfume. One more reason to love him!

  2. I believe the concealer palette is from Kryolan and the MAC compact is either their Full Coverage compact foundation or the MSF as you had mentioned 🙂 The compact looks a little flatter compared to the more domed MSF one. #macnerd lol
