On view from Feb. 8 to May 12, the objects in the exhibit are said to 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 look, 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 and Revlon Emery Boards.
