Patti LuPone’s Dressing Room (2017)

pattilupone_warpaint4_bornunicornIn 2016-2017 the multi-Tony and Grammy winner Patti LuPone added an extraordinary role to her already stellar career: she performed as Helena Rubinstein in the musical War Paint, based on the 2004 book by Lindy Woodhead which chronicled the long-time rivalry between beauty enterpreneurs Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden.

This photoshoot by Lauren Klain Carton was published on Vulture to illustrate an interview she had with Jason McHenry: it features backstage pictures, which mean dressing room pictures, which mean cosmetics!

And now the make-up. The products up front are by Make Up For Ever – the super matte loose powder in the round plastic pot and the high-definition pressed powder in the black compact.

Marc Almond’s Dressing Room (2015)


diorskin_nudeaircompact_bornunicornI love when Marc Almond posts on his Instagram account the dressing rooms he visits while on tour. Today he posted this picture, taken yesterday at the Assembly Hall in Turnbridge Wells. The first item which has caught my attention is the beautiful silver Cannage compact by Dior, which could contain Diorskin Nude Tan sun powder or Diorskin Nude Air compact powder.

Thanks to my reader Sara for the MAC id.
