So you can't make it down to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras, but nothing is stopping you from bringing the Boot to you. Celebrate Fat Tuesday in style with a festive makeup look and a grenade—or two— with your girls.
What better way to laissez les bons temps rouler than with a beauty look with a little shimmer? Play-up Mardi Gras' signature purple, green and gold colors by adding a little shimmer. Take a cue from Flawless Beauty By Amanda and add a feline flick for good measure.
If you're feeling festive, turn your eyes into a canvas and bedazzle themwith gliter and jewels like Emanuele Castelli.
Leave it up to makeup artist, Ellarie, to craft a Mardi Gras look that you'll want to wear all year round.
Borrow a beauty look from Carneval and play with purple paint and rhinestone-embellished lashes like Shameless Maya.
