Revlon Announces Sponsorship of the Brooklyn Museum Exhibition, Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving
Posted on Jan 31, 2019 by Brad McCabe

Global beauty leader Revlon will serve as the presenting sponsor of the Brooklyn Museum's upcoming exhibition, Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving. The largest U.S. exhibition devoted to Kahlo in 10 years, the exhibit will showcase the extraordinary collection of personal possessions, including clothing, jewelry and Revlon cosmetics, belonging to the iconic Mexican artist, presented alongside important paintings and drawings, as well as photographs, related historical film, and works from the Brooklyn Museum's Mesoamerican collection.  

On view from February 8 to May 12, 2019, the objects in the exhibit shed new light on Kahlo and illustrate how she crafted her appearance and shaped her identity. From her eyebrows to her fingertips, her color theory extended beyond the paint brush, with eyebrows accentuated by an ebony-hued brow pencil, and bursts of crimson on her lips and nails, all from her favorite cosmetic brand, Revlon.

"Frida Kahlo has made an indelible impact on art and culture by fearlessly expressing herself through bold, uncompromising art," said Revlon CEO Debra Perelman. "She epitomizes Revlon's Live Boldly platform, which champions self-expression and confident, independent women."

Kahlo's distinct beauty look, which was reflected in many of her self-portraits, has become a universal tribute to true beauty. "Of my face," Kahlo said, "I like the eyebrows and the eyes. Aside from that, I like nothing. I have a mustache and the face of the opposite sex."

The selection of Frida Kahlo's personal cosmetics that will be featured include:

Revlon Lipstick in Everything's Rosy
Revlon Brow Pencil in Ebony
Revlon Nail Polish in Frosted Pink Lightning, Frosted Snow Pink and Top Coat
Revlon Blush in Crimson
Revlon Emery Boards

Trends and products have evolved since Frida Kahlo's time, but red lips and defined brows remain timeless. While her personal, archived products are not available today, her captivating beauty look lives on through iconic products such as Revlon Super Lustrous™ Lipstick and ColorStay™ Brow Pencil. Create a modern interpretation of her signature look with these contemporary Revlon favorites:

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice
