Carnival makeup 2018: The Lost Tribe “Virginia” inspired look

We are in the throws of Trinidad & Tobago Carnival 2018! Fetes are ramping up and the debate over the Road March continues. Are you #TeamSavannah or #TeamKingdom?

There are hundreds of thousands of people playing mas this year, so I decided to finally film a Carnival makeup look. I have definitely done looks in the past on my blog, but I have never posted one on YouTube. I decided to get inspiration from the section “Virginia” from The Lost Tribe Carnival “7 Sisters” 2018 offering. A pretty light blue costume with gold accents. I also looked at the makeup looks done at the Lost Tribe launch done by global makeup artist for M.A.C. and one of my faves, Romero Jennings.

Here’s how it turned out….



So check out the Virginia section of The Lost Tribe in collaboration with Dirty Dozen J’ouvert.

So check out the video below and all the products used will be listed.

Summa Soaka Series! – The 14 Best Waterproof Makeup Products & Brands – Face & Lips

Welcome to Part 2 of my #SummaSoaka Series! This time, I’ll be looking at waterproof makeup options for face and lips – you know foundation, blush etc. My last post focused on waterproof makeup for eyes. If you missed it, here’s the post 🙂

Again looking at brands that specifically offer waterproof or water-resistant makeup. Also, there are a lot of longwear products available now, especially for lips, but this does not necessarily mean that they are also waterproof.

So here’s my list of readily available waterproof makeup products for face and lips.

All products mentioned are listed below.

Trinidad & Tobago Carnival 2015…in review

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Oh, how are you all going?

I am still recovering from Carnival. I got the opportunity to go home this year to experience Carnival. And I had a blast! It was great to step out of my normal routine and reacquaint myself with the splendor of Carnival!

I also did a few makeup looks for mas on Carnival Tuesday! It was fun working on a different style of makeup. Primarily, I used the Mehron Precious Gems Powder mixed with M.A.C. water-based Mixing Medium on the lids as the colour, Mehron Ad Gem as the glue to adhere the gemstones and OCC Lip Tar on the lips.

Makeup by me!


Makeup by me!


So here are some pictures of the colour, the feting, the parading and the jouvaying!

Big up to Dirty Dozen J’ouvert! Epic year! We did it big!!

Anyone else did Carnival this year?

Moko Jumbies! I love seeing children playing traditional mas!
