3 min read


In Carnival there's nothing wrong and this is the time when (almost) everything is allowed! From a simple make-up to the most complex the most important is doing something!


Add some color!



Color is the easiest way to give a twist to the look and it can be used in a discreet way or in a most complex make-up. One of our suggestions is change the usual black eye mascara for a colorful one like the Shiseido Controlled Chaos Mascaraink or YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils.

For an more complex look we also suggest swap the usual black eyeliner for a colorful one like the multifunction Shiseido, Kajal inkartist pencil for shadow, eyeliner and eyebrowThey're ideal not only to use for small details but also to give precision in more detailed works.

An excellent option to bold your look is to play with the color of the eye shadows, so our suggestion is to use a palette of shadows of different tones and finishes, from matte to satin and, even with shine to light up your eyes. We highlight the professional options of the LA Girl Pro Eyeshadow Palette.



And because in these days there will be many hours of partying and fun, it is necessary to have the sure that the makeup stays flawless for as long as possible. For this we suggest the application of primer on the entire face such as the Clarins sos make up primer oil free texture or Martiderm flash ampoules. You should know that you can use Martiderm Flash ampoules or Flash serum in your children before Carnival makeups to avoid any unexpected reactions.

We suggest adding some color on the cheekbones with Givenchy Prisme Libre Blush and of illuminator on the light points of the face (top of the cheekbone, bridge of the nose, chin...) with Chanel Poudre Lumière.

For extra fixation, in addition to the primer we suggest finishing with Lancôme Fix it Forget it setting mist.


Lips and Body

Color! At this point everything is allowed and so we propose color in an uniform or gradient application. We suggest matte finish for a high fixation and long lasting. The Tatouage couture ultra-matte liquid lipstick by Yves Saint Laurent has a great fixation and the formula is super light and almost imperceptible on the lip. But if you prefer the traditional lipstick, the classic Chanel Rouge allure velvetluminous matte lip colour is an excellent option.

Glitter and shimmer in festive days are never too much, not even in the body! We then suggest the Self-Tanning Wipes are perfect for a satin and tanned finish. If you want to intensify the shine or just add some shimmer you should apply Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse d'Or multi-usage dry oil golden shimmer.


What about Hair?

Hairstyles are also something important in a party. There are some products that will help to hold and fix any stylingfrom waxes to sprays and even indispensable accessories.

Some accessories such as bobby pins and elastics are indispensable in any hairstyle. For the simplest or elaborate we suggest the Invisibobble Power extra strong elasticand to complement the bobby pins Waver hair clip without metal from the same brand that gives hair hold without leaving marks!

When it comes to stylingit's best to opt for extreme fixing sprays like the Triple take 32 extreme high-hold spray from Redken. If the idea is a hairstyle with some updos that require some extra grip, the ideal will be to combine the styling products with the Redken Powder grip 03 matifying powder to add some texture.
