    But it’s the steamy shower I long for!
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted3 months ago
    Post-show, when I’m in my dressing room, I count on MAC’s industrial-strength, mineral-oil-free Cleanse Off Oil to dissolve everything away. Coconut oil is another fabulous natural option.

    I wanted skin that resembled that of a porcelain doll. I pulled it off, and it looks amazing in photographs.

    cases where the foundation shade is different from the skin tone, it better be expertly applied. As such, it was with a combination of patience and luck that I covered my arms, chest, and legs in a milkier-than-usual foundation for one red carpet outing some years back.

    A thick, not-of-this-world layer of body makeup under the blinding lights of a catwalk or stage can appear like flawless skin.

    No one should be able to see my bare skin,” I urged him. “It must be spackled on.”
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted3 months ago
    Don’t be shy. Lay it on thicker. It’s all right to use the whole bottle.” But the poor makeup artist was sending me out of my mind.

    Applying body makeup is a craft, one not all professional makeup artists have mastered
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted3 months ago
    This foundation step is followed by a good powdering. On another plate, I mingle Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder and MAC Iridescent Loose Powder in Silver Dusk. I may even add a loose powder with sparkling pink or blue tints for effect. I apply it with a grand ten-inch puff custom-made for me by my accommodating friends at Ricky’s beauty emporium in New York City.

    A wet towel to clean my hands is always nearby, as is an assistant to coat any hard-to-reach spots on my back and to serve as a second set of eyes to survey my work.
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted3 months ago
    My hands are my best tools when it comes to applying body makeup, and no cranny is left without a good slathering. Should my G-string so much as creep up a nanometer during an act, no one in the audience is the wiser.
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted3 months ago
    I sit on the floor in my dressing room, atop a towel in front of a full-length mirror, hair in rollers, full face of makeup, blending this concoction on a plate.

    The latter is one of those products used by makeup professionals for full coverage of tattoos, veins, and bruises; I like that it’s also water-resistant, especially for those performances involving water. To lighten it up a bit further, I stir in a squirt of white MAC Face and Body Foundation, as well as MAC’s iridescent skin booster Strobe Cream.

    Backstage, I combine a mixture of Revlon ColorStay Foundation, MAC Face and Body, and Dermablend Leg & Body Cover, all in the palest shades.

    I have a separate kit just for showtime
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted3 months ago
    Clean hair is the best hair to start with, and even on show day I always start with a freshly washed head. If I had to set it for a TV appearance earlier in the day, I always make the time to wash it again before heading to the theater, using a drop of shampoo followed by conditioner, or I skip the shampoo altogether to maintain color.

    My most lavish production to date, “The Opium Den,” took four years from daydream through development to take to the stage.
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted3 months ago
    From the turn of the first hot roller to the final sweep of shimmering powder, the time I spend on beauty is all of ninety minutes before the curtain rises.
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted3 months ago
    Even the best face-lift in the world will require a follow-up within a decade or less.
    Menna Abu Zahrahas quoted3 months ago
    I’ve always said that cosmetic surgery, cosmetic procedures of any kind, is a dramatic form of makeup.
