Rosario Viñoly: Memory of the ephemeral

Rosario Viñoly was born in Montevideo in 1956

At a very young age she began to work as a make-up artist in theater and television. Motivated by curiosity and the desire to do, she entered the carnival in 1983. Her technique and creative flight allowed her in a short time to capture works that generated impact, highlighting the item and transforming her name into a quality seal.

Pioneer in the role of makeup artist in carnival, she also ventured into costume design, debuting in that area at the 2004 carnival with the counterfarsa murga.

Requirement, technique, flight, are its qualities.

Rosario Viñoly began her journey marking a before and after in the history of carnival makeup. In the search to create without repeating herself, she changed her aesthetics, applying a maxim that has always accompanied her: a good makeup must always be at the service of the wardrobe.

He designed carnival costumes for Contrafarsa, Zíngaros, Los Diablos Verdes, Los Muchachos, Don Timoteo and Los Saltimbanquis.
