Carnival make up

It's Carnival Tuesday and your arrive to meet, your band. All the ladies in the band have fab make up, but all you have is a light dust of eyeshadow, eyeliner and glitter, can u feel anymore drab? Thus this post is inspired to help ladies look FAB on the road! It's Carnival and carnival is about creativity, so get creative on those eyes!

Now there are stations around town and Woodbrooke that offer this make up service for a small fee of lets say $100.For the persons who want to do it at home,here are some tips

Tips to apply carnival make up for yourself.

  1. Apply sun block to face first. ( make sure it's at least spf 30 don't want to end up looking toasted on Ash Wednesday)
  2. Let sun block settle, don't apply anything else to face for about 10mins.
  3. Apply foundation and concealer
  4. Dust a little powder to settle foundation with Powder brush
  5. Spray make up fixing spray
  6. Apply primer
  7. Apply make up. When applying eye make up, persons believes that face jewels make the make up look pretty and stand out. This can be found at your local wonderful world.. Wonderful world carries all shades of make, so looking for an unusual shade that's your store. Also applying a little iridescent fine glitter dust to over lip gloss, looks majestic also.
  8. Apply another coat of powder to settle in make up and finish with fixing spray
