Carnival Inspired Makeup

If you’re a longtime follower, you know that I LOVE Carnival time. I haven’t played mas since 2014, but I watch Machel Monday, Soca Monarch, and other streamed events online. Being upset I missed another carnival, I created a look inspired by my costume for Caribana 2013.

I started out by moisturizing, filling in my brows, applying foundation and setting my makeup with a translucent powder. I also used a contour and blush palette to sculpt my face and a little highlighter to glow.

I finally used the Trolls Eyeshadow palette. The colors used were Branch, DJ Suki, and Karma.

Carnival is all about being bold and creative. I came out of my comfort zone by using a liquid eye shadow and lipstick n my lips for an ombre effect. I think I did a pretty decent job for the first try.

As mentioned in my Carnival Prep post, you can definitely add lashes stones and glitter to stand out more. Since my travel plans are done for the year, I’m hoping to make it to Carnival 2018. I’m still not sure if I want to play mas, but I have more than enough time to decide.

Do you have interest in any Caribbean Carnivals?
