HUDA BEAUTY Metallic Lipstick
Whether you're going to be strutting your stuff through the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade or are planning a viewing party at home, Mardi Gras is a great time to let your makeup freak-flag fly.
It's also the perfect opportunity to play around with some colour. Here are 10 of my favourite Mardi Gras makeup ideas. (If you're after outfit ideas, check these out.)
Mardi Gras takes its name (though not its mission) from the classic New Orleans festival. The official colours for that event are purple, green and gold, and it's a great combo to deploy.
The rainbow is a staple symbol of the LGBTQI community. Creating one with eyeshadow lets you play with a bunch more colours and get super creative.
If you've got the confidence to pull it off then PLEASE go in full drag, but you don't have to be a drag queen to rock this makeup look. The art of drag is for absolutely everyone and the looks can be incredible. As drag legend RuPaul would say: Shantay, you stay.
Glitter can be overused (and can pose an environmental threat). Glitter freckles represent a cool way to incorporate sparkle and flair. It's also a great look if you're nervous about going big with colour. Stick to the neutrals you know and love but add a little shimmer and sass.
Bold colourful eyeliner is one of the hottest makeup trends for 2020 (thanks, Euphoria). It's also a lot easier than doing a seven-shade eye makeup look.
You didn't think I was going to only have one rainbow look, did you? I'm putting this look in here because I'm literally begging for someone to recreate it. Begging.
Brows are super-important. Create the ultimate statement brow by chucking in some stars to really bring home the "brows on fleek" award. (Disclaimer: I made that award up.)
Your makeup doesn't even need to be applied in the traditional way. There are some killer non-traditional looks on Pinterest including lightning bolts, flowers and my personal favourite, red hot flames!
If 2019 gave us anything (besides bad memories) then it was the glossy eyeshadow trend. If it's something you've been wanting to give a try, then this is the perfect opportunity.
Let's CELEBRATE LOVE! This is what Mardi Gras is about at the end of the day. And what better makeup look than this? It's cute, it's bright, it's fun and it really shares the lurrrrve.
