MAKEUP LOOKS FOR 2012 TRINIDAD CARNIVAL

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’.
