Tip to Toe Tutorials: Inception Make-Up
Step by step instructions by @lailamwah
Costume day brings all the glitz and the glamour that carnival is world-renowned for. Once you've donned your costume and heels (well, trainers, let's be honest, it's a long ol' dance route), it's time to get your face on. Carnival is girls girls girls after all. Ent, Fay-Ann Lyons?
Why not give your fave look a practise run on Carnival Friday at our One Famalay Carnival Concert? You can grab your tickets to London's BIGGEST EVER Soca gig here.
Step 1 - Start with a fresh base.
Step 2 - Apply an orange cream or concealer to the lid and blend in.
Step 3 - Apply an orange shadow on top to intensify the colour.
Step 4 - Add a clear lid gloss to seal the colour and pat over the shadow.
Step 5 - Apply mascara or fake lashes to finish.
Step 1 - Apply a primer or concealer over your lids to create a blank canvas.
Step 2 - Place a light purple or pink into the crease of your eye, and blend upwards.
Step 3 - Build the colour with a deeper purple into the crease.
Step 4 - Keep building with a bright pink shadow onto the lid, blending into the purple.
Step 5 - Finish with lashes and a pop of neon green in the tear duct area.
Step 1 - Apply a black eyeshadow base to the eyelid.
Step 2 - Blend upwards and outwards to create a cat eye shape (top tip: you can use a dusty pink eyeshadow to blend the edges for a softer, smokier look).
Step 3 - Apply more black eyeshadow on top of the base and keep blending!
Step 4 - Grab chunky glitter and some adhesive (you can use from fake lashes), and place on the inner corners of your eyes. Don’t be afraid - there’s never too much glitter!
Step 1 - Apply an orange shadow across the lid for a wash of colour.
Step 2 - Apply a pink shadow on the outer corners of your eye and a lighter gold on the inner - this will create a gradient effect.
Step 3 - Map out where your glitter happy tears will go.
Step 4 - Apply adhesive (you can use the adhesive that comes with your fake lashes) and place gold glitter in these areas.
Step 5 - Finish with lashes and perhaps even more glitter...
Step 1 - Apply a base on the lids and blend upwards - this is to ensure maximum colour vibrancy.
Step 2 - Add a wash of purple into the crease and upper crease.
Step 3 - Define the crease further with a deeper purple eyeshadow.
Step 4 - Begin to 'cut' your crease using a tacky eyeshadow base or concealer.
Step 5 - Pack on a light coloured eyeshadow to this area.
Step 6 - Add lashes and a pop of blue eyeliner on the waterline.
