Roll Call

With open registration today at TRIBE and Island People's online starting sometime next week, I wanted to get a "head count" of who is playing with what section/band. I know several people have left comments saying that they are playing with Island People but they used "anonymous" so I cannot list them here. Don't be intimidated by all the TRIBERS who regularly visit this blog, please let me know which band you are playing with and what section by leaving a comment and I will update the following list as I get the information. Island People is leading TRIBE in my poll so I know there are lots of people who visit this blog and are playing with Island People!

Those of you with the asterix by your name let me know what section you got in.

Glitz, Glamour and Fantasy

Since I have been receiving a lot of enquiries about Professional Makeup I went into my archives and found this advertisement, which was on earlier this year offering makeup services for 2006 Carnival.

After further research I have discovered that the address on the flyer is the same for Ephraim Hunte Productions Ltd. who has a website which lists all his contact information. Mr Hunte also writes a beauty column for the Trinidad Guardian Womanwise Magazine.

The Trinidad Guardian it seems is also the place to find articles on professional make up artistes in Trinidad. They have profiled Kirk Thomas and Leigh Rachael Marhue, with Kirk also writing a beauty column for the Womanwise Magazine. Leigh Rachael Marhue has done work for TRIBE's band launching and is out of the country at this time but will be returning to Trinidad in January.

Other well known make up artists in Trinidad are Kamla Koon-How Regrello, who is the head make up artist at Sacha Cosmetics and author of a make up guide which is free to download online, Arlene King (who does make up for Lisa Wickham) Leasel Rovedas and Sandra Hordatt.
Leasel Rovedas can be contacted through TRIBE and Sandra Hordatt through Island People Mas, though I doubt either of them will have time to do make up for Carnival seeing as they are both involved in producing sections for their respective bands. If anyone needs a contact number for Arlene King, send me an email.

At the Dream Team's Launch I met the make up artist Tsahi Baxter who was responsible for doing the faces of the models, that was the first time I personally saw her work and I took her contact information since she informed me that she also does Carnival make up including applying face jewels. If you are interested in "airbrush make up" (not airbrush body painting) I have been informed that "Makeup Artistry by Jamie" provides that service. I also got a contact number for the person who did TRIBE's body airbrushing and his name is James and his number is listed below.

Now, I don't do the professional makeup for Carnival since I really don't have the time and the only makeup artist I have used and give my personal recommendation, is Arlene King. If anyone has had any negative experiences with anyone that I have listed and would like to share this information for the benfits of others please do, just keep it clean of personal attacks.
