INSPIRATION AND ADVICE

YOUR MARDI GRAS PARTY LOOK

By Justine Fedorowycz, 28 February 2019

*Frantic voice* Sydney’s 2019 Mardi Gras Parade is mere days away, people. Marking over a year since Australia voted in favour of same-sex marriage (more on that here), this year’s Mardi Gras – which celebrates LGBTQI lives, culture, communities and creativity – is all the more significant. And if, like us, you’ve spent more time planning your outfit than your hair and makeup, then keep scrolling for some colourful Face + Body looks to get you in the party mood.

If video tutorials aren’t your thing, then fear not, because these two makeup looks are super easy to recreate (see ya, emergency face wipes). Start by enlisting the help of your most colourful eyeshadow palette, then simply play with pigment by applying and blending individual colours. To finish, grab a couple of face crayons and get doodling for an abstract, brushstroke effect.

 

Alternatively, you can keep things simple (sort of) by applying a few coats of blue mascara for an electrifying bolt of colour. One of the great things about this look is that it’s quick and easy, so you can spend less time getting ready and more time getting your party on.

Is it even Mardi Gras if you aren’t flexing something neon? Go full on saturated with instant hair colour to help you stand out from the crowd. You can even co-ordinate your hair with your eyebrows if you have a little extra left over, as demonstrated above. And if you don’t fancy living the highlighter life for the foreseeable, just shampoo it out the very next day – easy.
