Revlon Directional Makeup looks for Carnival 2012

Revlon enlisted the help of Tribe Costume Designer and renowned Makeup Artist Sandra Hordatt to create three directional looks highlighting makeup trends for Carnival 2012. Fireworks were the theme behind this year’s dramatic looks.

Inspired by the bright palette of colours available in Revlon’s new Colorstay 16 hour Shadow line and the glitzy new shades in Revlon’s Colorburst lip glosses and lip butters Sandra created three looks each based around a name from each of the products used: Ignite, Bombshell and Alluring Amber.

Each look was designed to complement the dramatic costumes loaned from the Tribe and Bliss 2012 Carnival Presentations ‘Take Me To…’

‘Creating the looks using Revlon’s Colorstay line ensures that our models’ makeup will last through hot sun and sweat.’ commented Dianne Mongru, Revlon Trinidad’s resident Makeup Artist, ‘Revlon’s new Colorstay 16 hour shadow is designed to not crease, fade or smudge so it looks freshly applied all day’.

Alluring Amber
Ana Rosa Banfield in the rich orange costume ‘Santorini’ from Tribe wears Colorstay Liquid foundation in Toast, Colorstay 16hr powder in Medium Deep. Sandra dusted her cheeks with Colorstay Finishing powder in Sunkiss for a bronzed finish and brushed her lips with Colorburst Lip butter in Tutti Fruitti for a final touch. Ana Rosa’s dramatic right eye was created using new Colorstay 16hr shadow in Bombshell, Inspired and Delightful. Sandra used Revlon Matte lipstick in Really Red as a base on the eye to create a fiery effect. Her left eye was given a smokey finish using Colorstay 16hr shadow in Addictive. Eyes were finished with Colorstay Eyeliner Black, false lashes were added and given a coat of Grow Luscious plumping Mascara in Blackest Black; amber crystals were added to her right eye for dramatic effect. Her nails were polished with Revlon Core nail enamel in Alluring Amber.

Kristen Chin Cheong in the bold red costume ‘Ibiza’ from Tribe wears Colorstay liquid foundation in Natural Tan, Colorstay 16hr pressed powder in Medium and Revlon powder blush in Tender Plum.
Sandra used Revlon Beyond Natural Creme shadow in Plum Berry and Colorstay 16hr shadow in Brazen to base the eye before applying a layer of red glitter on the lid. She finished the look using Revlon Colorstay gel liner in Black and Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen in Blackest Black to create the bold lines and finished with red crystals and false lashes coated in Revlon Fabulash mascara Black. Kristen’s lips were brushed with Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Candy Apple and Colorburst Lipgloss in Ignite

Cristiane Steel in Bliss’s colorful ‘Tahiti’ costume wears Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation in True Beige. Colorstay 16hr pressed powder in Medium and Colorstay Mineral Finishing Powder in Sunkiss. Sandra used Colorstay 16hr shadow in Bombshell, Seductive, Brazen and Inspired as well as Revlon’s crème Matte lipstick in Really Red to create the three tone effect on Christiane’s eyes. Crystals in varying sizes were added for dramatic effect and her eyes were finished with Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner in Blackest Black and false lashes topped with Revlon Double Twist Mascara in Black. Christiane wore Revlon Colorburst lipgloss in Decadent on her lips.

The shadows on all three models were applied wet to increase the intensity of the colour. For more detailed information on how to achieve these looks visit
