According to The Guardian, the room was not opened until 2004 and now more than 200 items from the Casa Azul or the "Blue House" are going to be displayed in London. If you were wondering what makeup the painter used for her iconic unibrow and red lips, look no further. The Mexicana used "Ebony" by Revlon for her unibrow and "Everything's Rosy" for her lips.

Other items that will be featured at the Victoria & Albert Museum exhibit include clothes, jewelry, medicines, intimate possessions, and even a prosthetic leg from the artist. The V&A show will showcase 22 of the colorful and often paint-splashed Tehuana garments she wore.

Kahlo often individualized her belongings, such as her corsets that she wore to support her back, by converting them into art. 

“This is the real material evidence of the way Kahlo constructed her identity,” Claire Wilcox, senior curator of fashion at the V&A, told The Guardian.
