It is the very end of 2016! The very last day! I am not going to go into how crazy this year has been. I’m going to keep it really upbeat. This is a festive New Year’s Eve party makeup tutorial that will also work for the upcoming Carnival fete season. We are officially in the Christmas period, but since Christmas night, deejays have been playing the latest soca offerings for 2017. We doh make joke with Carnival!
I decided on this look when I saw a video posted by the legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath, portraying her latest Skin Labs offerings. Cream and powder metallic and glitter eye shadows in silver, bronze, gold and copper. I did not pick any of these kits but loved the look so much for its simplicity and its impact.
Here is the look
I could not decide on the lip so I am showing you both!
I am using many of my favourite products for 2016 as well as some more recent purchases. If you don’t have the exact products that I used, pick up some great inexpensive alternatives from NYX, and ColourPop Cosmetics.
The complete video tutorial is below and I have listed all the products used.

Can you believe it? The holidays are here! It’s Christmas! C’est Noël!
This is my favourite time of year. I simply love it. The memories, the sights, the sounds, the food of Christmases past continue to stay with me. For me it is not even about the getting of gifts, it’s the whole atmosphere, the feelings, the parang and the pastelles!
So that is what I am looking forward to this weekend. Christmas. I am home with my family in Trinidad and I am excited.
So best wishes from me to you. Let me know what is your favourite dish for Christmas?
We are well into December, and I am in the Christmas spirit! Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year! There is something about the atmosphere and mood of the place that I love. The smells and sounds of this time of year are vivid in my memories from since childhood. I think I may love the run up and anticipation of the holiday more than the actual day itself. I have been playing parang since October! So, in the spirit of Christmas, I am doing a simple, but glam holiday makeup look, that features a bold red, Christmas-y lip. This is great look to quickly go from desk to dinner or to your company holiday party. I kept the eyes understated as this is all about the lips!
Here’s the video!
