The Carnival Beat: MUA Guide

 

Hello Beauties!

July kicked off the carnival season, at least for Trinidad 2018, where we get to do it all over again. As carnival becomes more popular, masqueraders all over, want to look their best on the road. From choosing the best fetes, fete outfits, getting in the gym and now, choosing the best Make-Up Artists (MUA), to beat your face to the gods. Sweat-resistant, luxe eyelashes and a sexy cut crease? YAS! LOL. Let’s get into some of my favorite looks per most attended carnivals. Note: I don’t know of everyone, so please comment  about your favorite MUA below.

TRINIDAD  CARNIVAL

Trinidad Carnival takes place days before Ash Wednesday every year. And while most think they have all t he time of the world to plan, everything in regards to Trinidad, sells out quickly. Costumes, fete tickets, accommodations and yes MUAs too. Some of the most popular MUAs are usually booked by October, sometimes earlier.  There are several on the island, but these three are my favorites.
