Marc Almond’s Dressing Table (2018)

I’ve got a thing for Marc Almond’s dressing rooms. The British singer is often on tour, and he frequently posts pictures of the make-up products he wears in concert. The one above was taken in June 2018, backstage at the Let’s Rock Bristol festival.Starting from the left, there are NARS Soft Velvet loose powder and Dior Nude Air pressed face powder.benefitbrowsetter_bornunicornecotoolsbrushes_bornunicornThe silver tube topped by a ball is BeneFit 24-Hour Brow Setter clear brow gel. In a plastic sleeve there’s a face brush by EcoTools.kikocreamcompactfoundation_bornunicornEyebrow Filler Light Touch Pencil 06kikoconcealer_bornunicornThere are several products by Kiko – two silver compacts (which could contain foundation or pressed powder), an eyebrow filler in pencil form and two concealer compacts.benefit_browzings_bornunicornbeccaevermatteporelessprimingperfector_bornunicornnarscoconutgrove_bornunicornThe silver compact near the Kiko compact is BeneFit Brow Zings, an eyebrow shaping kit. There’s also a tube of Becca Ever-Matte poreless priming perfector. Last, there’s a single eyeshadow in a dark brown shade by NARS.

Marc Almond’s Dressing Room (2018)

On December 19th and 20th, 2018, Marc Almond performed with the Jools Holland Orchestra at the Newcastle City Hall. The pictures he takes of his dressing rooms are the best, because they always feature interesting cosmetics (in this case, interesting books too!)

One of the two Kiko Milano silver compacts definitely contains the cream compact foundation; the other could be a pressed powder.

Marc Almond’s Dressing Room (2016)

wp-1457544346539.jpgMarc Almond posted this picture on his Instagram account. He was in France to appear in the tv show Les années bonheur and took a selfie in his dressing room.

One is La Fluide liquid foundation (you can see the box in the transparent plastic bag); the other is – I think – the loose powder, judging from the shape of the box on the right and from the round pot in the bag.

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.


diorskin_nudeaircompact_bornunicornflorisnightscentedjasmine_bornunicornOn the table I can see some items I spotted last May (MAC Mineralize Skinfinish and Dior Cannage compact), plus some additions. 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.

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.
