I May Destroy You S01E12 (Ego Death)

One of the first places we are introduced to in this show is Ego Death, a London bar with a prophetical name. It’s the place where the protagonist, Arabella, and her best friend Terry (Weruche Opia) often return to in an attempt to exorcise it as a negative symbol and find closure to the traumatic event the show opens with.

In this scene, Terry is retouching her make-up by applying a MAC lipstick in a nude shade.

Seeing this lipstick here is not a surprise, because MAC was the brand of choice of the movie’s make-up artist, Nicki Ledermann, who used Chromacakes to create the protagonist’s clown looks.
