Mardi Gras 2014 – Look

Guess What Today is ?!?

Mardi Gras Beads I’ll give you a clue… it has to do with colorful beads and lots of happy people.. You’ve guessed it… It’s Mardi Gras. Usually when people think Mardi Gras they think about the music, parades, picnics, floats and excitement in New Orleans.

For those of you who don’t know… Mardi gras is the carnival celebration due to the French, Spanish, and other colonial influences on the settlements over the history. It is also known as “Fat Tuesday“.

Did you know that more than 500,000 king cakes are sold each year during the Mardi Gras celebration? King cakes colorful cakes with a plastic baby inside to represent baby Jesus.Now these days you can even order king cakes online.

So your wondering? What does this has to do with my beauty blog? Good question, Mardi Gras involves tons of colorful costumes and bright makeup. What a great chance for me to show you guys how to get creative at home.

This is the look I came up with for my Mardi Gras mask look. The lights kind of wash away the makeup so I am hoping you’ll be able to see it.

So when Inglot emailed me this beautiful ad promoting their products for Valentine.

I  . . . . 

A) Rushed out and and bought their products?

B)  Called up all my besties and talked about how awesome their products are?

C) Made my husband go buy me their products for my valentine gift?

Answer:

Sorry guys! Trick question! I RECREATED their look.

I used their face chart to recreate their look. I did used Inglot eye shadows but you can easily use what you got at home. The trick is to draw a black cat eye then go over it a few times with a bright purple eye shadow. Personally, I think this look screams Valentines Day with the girly colors of pink and purple. If this look is too much for you, you can always replace the hot pink lips with a more natural lip like nudes.  This is not a sponsor review but I LOVE Inglot eye shadows. They’re the best shadows for the price. I go crazy during their Black Friday Sale every year.

I used Inglot #359 on the lid and Inglot #325 for the cat eyed and Inglot gel eyeliner #76 gofer the base.
