Hollywood Makeup Kit

This Gerstner makeup kit belonged to MGM’s Ray Romero, who worked for 60 years as a Hollywood makeup artist beginning in 1914.You can still buy Gerstner products, although they are sold (not surprisingly) as tool kits. I love the detail of the photographs he has in the kit. One is of the artist himself.

I was inspired yesterday by my colleague, Janice Kinigopolous, whose modern kit looks and feels like the original. We were backstage at the Ritz Carlton for the Neiman Marcus/Salvation Army Fashion Show with Carmen Marc Valvo.
