Carnival 2010: Last Looks!

Hey guys!

So apparently this is the winter of the decade, snow fuh so!!!!

So here is one last look for all you snow-bound folks, a little taste of sunshine!!!

I did my sister’s makeup for Carnival Tuesday, when everyone wears their full costumes.  She played with Spice in the ‘Greece’ section, which was a vibrant purple and they looked really good on de road, crossing de stage.  They had slightly large headpiecees and the frontline had a lot of encrusted rhinestones which glowed in the sun.

I used:

  • M.A.C. eyeshadow in Beautiful Iris (inner lid)
  • A mix of M.A.C. MES in Odd Couple (purple side) & NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Jolie Poupee (shimmer side) (middle lid)
  • Make Up For Ever eyeshadow in # 92 (outer lid)
  • M.A.C. eyeshadow in Cork (crease and browbone)
  • M.A.C. eyeshadow in Satelite Dreams (lower lid)
  • M.A.C. Fluidline in Blacktrack
  • M.A.C. Dual Edge Eye Pencil in Fab Orchid (lower lashine)/Dash Lily (flares)
  • Falsies
  • Givenchy Phenom’Eyes mascara in Phenom’Black
  • M.A.C. Lipglass in Atmospheric (base)
  • M.A.C. Gimmerglass in Blackfire (top)

Hope you guys enjoyed!!!!

It's Carnival Time again!!! Las' Lap!!!

Hi guys!

This is my last installment of my Carnival looks, inspired by the presentations for 2010!  Today is Fantastic Friday in Trinidad and Tobago and de place is hot like fire!!! Tonight is the Soca and the Groovy Soca Monarch Finals as well as Blue Range Cooler Fete, so there’s lots to do!!!

Back to the looks….

I decided for my final look, to use teals/blues/greens which are very popular colours for Carnival costumes and look amazing under the Caribbean sun!

My main inspiration came from Tribe’s section called Zari, which ‘is a type of thread made of precious fine wire and it is the main material used in making saris and ghararas’.
