YOUR MARDI GRAS 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 makeup, then keep scrolling for some colourful Face + Body looks to get you in the party mood.

Contouring, but make it colourful. A more extreme version of the ‘draping’ trend (AKA colour contouring using blusher) that’s recently been doing the rounds on the makeup scene, this vibrant look is perfect for your Mardi Gras celebrations. To recreate it, simply locate your most kaleidoscopic eyeshadow palette and play with pigment by applying and blending individual colours around your eyes, temples and forehead for a dreamy AF aesthetic. Finish with a shiny slick of lipgloss and you're good to glow.

Is it even Mardi Gras if you aren’t flexing something neon? Go full on super 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.
