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!!!!!!!

And people here in Trinidad are getting ready for The Greatest Show on Earth!!!! People running ’round de Savannah at all hours, panmen fine tuning their Panorama pieces and there is an all-inclusive fete every Saturday and Sunday.  Once of the most popular aspects of Trini Carnival is the Parade of Bands featuring ‘pretty mas’ i.e. masqueraders, mostly women, in beautiful, skimpy costumes.  This is yuh time to get on!!!!! Mas camps spend all year designing and creating productions centred around a theme.  There are many bands of various sizes, but three of the most popular large-sized bands are Tribe, Spice and Island People.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be showing makeup looks and ideas, inspired by the 2010 presentations.

The first look comes from Tribe, probably the most popular mas band in the country.  For real, the costumes are gorgeous and so vibrant!!!!! This will be real eye candy on the streets of Port-of-Spain!!  Tribe’s 2010 presentation is entitled ‘The Secret of Silk’ which is basically paying homage to all the regions in the world that have produced this fine material for centuries.  One of the sections that caught my eye was Tyrian Purple (I wonder why!!!LOL!!)
