Inside Frank Sinatra's Makeup Kit
Written by: Bobbi
One day, out of the blue, a girl walked into my then studio and dropped off a bag and asked the team to give it to me. I’ll never forget opening it and pulling out this cool, vintage makeup kit and reading the note. It was Frank sinatra’s makeup kit.
When I finished reading, I learned that it was a gift from the daughter of Frank’s New Jersey makeup artist, that always did his makeup when he had any performances in New York or New Jersey.
It is the most incredible thing. Inside is everything from hair tape to vintage, cool metal round packages with some very, very, old bright blush colors. Very technicolor. There are so many interesting things in there and a lot of cool packaging. My only regret is that I don’t have the girl’s name to properly thank her, so hopefully she reads this! I’d love to learn more about her father’s work.
