Lais Ribeiro uncovers her Glittery Carnaval-Makeup Look
During the week-long festival of Carnaval, a huge number of individuals develop onto the streets of Rio de Janeiro as partygoers and musicians dance all through the Brazilian city. Past the showstopping costumes, festive makeup is an absolute must—simply ask Piauí-born model Lais Ribeiro, who shared her fantasy Carnaval look with Vogue on a recent New York afternoon.
“It’s one of my favorites,” Ribeiro says of her playful makeup strategy. “It’s always so happy, with a lot of colors and a lot of glitters.” To prep her face, Ribeiro cleans her skin and applies a hydrating face mask. “Because my skin is so dry, I do moisturize again before my makeup,” she clarifies while praising on a lighting up serum and cream. In conclusion, a hydrating essence gives the ideal priming base.
“People take all year long to prepare the costumes,” says the model, who’s attended her fair share of Carnaval experiences. “Everyone uses glitter,” she explains, “so that’s what we’re going to do here today.” For a flawless canvas, Ribeiro mixes a cocktail of two different-color foundations and pats them in with a Beautyblender. To create the perfect festival-ready eye, the model swipes a reddish shadow onto her lids and a sparkling emerald hue underneath. “As a good Brazilian, you have to put yellow and green in there.”
Next, the model features her cheekbones and includes a dab of chunky glitter to the area. “Everybody is covered in glitter,” she says of the Carnaval crowd. “You hug someone, you kiss someone, and you have glitter all over your face. I love it.” Adding to the sparkling appeal, Ribeiro applies a sprinkling of star-and moon-shaped crystals to her upper eyelid.
Lips are defined and mascara applied; at that point for the final touch, the model clips a feathered headpiece (repurposed from a trip to Burning Man) onto her air-dried waves. This isn’t her first rodeo, all things considered.
