Carnival Makeup Pics from C2K9

Well, I can finally put some 'pen to paper' and talk about my experience with Carnival and the makeup applications...It was fun, hectic and of course didn't get a chance to do all the makeup I would have liked to do...but I am happy with how they turned out.

From 1:00 a.m. we were out from Point Fortin and our first stop was at Woodford Street. From then on we went straight to the Mas Camp and it has been pace since body still is recovering.

Check out some of my pics! My album is on my both my website (see on the right) or facebook page!

I just want to say again thank you for your patience and your willingness to wait for me...I really hope it was worth it.

Next year, I am going full on airbrush with not just the makeup but the body as well (as in abs etc), so look out for that.

DAJ Signing out!

Makeup Ideas for C2K9

My intention for masqueraders this carnival is to have really pretty & seemingly elaborate eye makeup. Check out some of the pics above that I have drawn inspiration from and also intend on DOING for this season!!

Now, these will only drive the inspiration and of course some variations are going to emerge. Another site that carries, I think, exciting makeup is Queen of Blending -

I am really looking forward to putting my own spin on them and I will definitely post the final looks on Wednesday!

Signing Out!

The mas camp we are with is 'DreamTeam' - This is for the Tuesday alone however, so if you want rocking makeup, please come EARLY!!!

We know that it will be really early in the morning to be out there, so we have arranged for light beverages such as coffee, tea, water to be made available for persons that will be there/patiently waiting for their makeup. :-)

This mas camp is located on Hamilton Street, Woodbrook. In fact, the camp was so thoughtful, they also included a map!!

Time to get excited!!!!!

Skin Care for that Carnival Heat

I had a ton of questions as to whether the airbrush makeup will last the heat of the day into the evening and I will say my experience and on my own face, I have noticed that once my skin was given a mask and exfoliated, the makeup held on for dear life!

It created a glow that I know cannot be created external to the face. It even reduces the amount of makeup that is required on the face, leaving it clearer and having more of your own skin on show.

I recommend that you invest in a good cleanser that is specific to your skin type. I have noticed that most people suffer from the combo skin - shiny 'T' zone and dry everywhere else. Especially for the heat, something that carries SPF but NOT OILY!! Preferably one that mattifies the skin.

Another golden rule, drink lots of water to keep the skin hydrated and the mas bands have the portable 'potties' so you don't have an excuse not to drink. Remember, the alcohol can also wreak havoc during that very hot day on your body, so please do in moderation.

So ladies and men (yes men), I implore you, please improve the skin care, even after Carnival. It refines the face, reduces spots and lines. I can go on and on but basically for the very vain of us out there, spend the money on the skin care first and then the makeup.

Update on Location & Info on Airbrush Makeup

Hi folks!

My team and I are finalising our 'home'/location for the Carnival Tuesday, so don't feel that I have forgotten to contact you...its taking a bit longer than I would have hoped but we will get there...

I hope you recall in a previous blog, that not all the Makeup Artists would be using Airbrush Makeup. In fact, out of the three of us, I would be the only one doing it so its really 1st come, 1st serve, apart from those that have already booked, of course!

Just some more info on the type of makeup I will be using - Temptu. Check out the link here!
