Make up forever LASHES and Waterproof Make Up!!

Even more dramatic false eyelashes from Makeup Forever, a brand which also produces waterproof makeup! The lash bar features lashes that are natural, dark, feathered and decorated with sparkles. Available online at Sephora:








One other product caught my eye from Makeup Forever, it is a waterproof Eye Seal that makes any regular eyeshadow waterproof, something that would have come in handy this year when it rained on Carnival Tuesday.


only at sephora Eye Seal, $20
PRO TRICK: Waterproof your favorite eye powders and pencils for extra staying power
Eye Seal transforms powder products and eye pencils into waterproof eye makeup with an extra pop. It dilutes and moistens colored powders, thereby bringing out the intensity of the color and boosting its longwearing abilities. Bring on the heat, humidity, and perspiration—they don't stand a chance with this steadfast formula.

# DANY SANZ'S PRO TIPS:To naturally brighten a look, combine eyeshadow or Star Powder with Eye Seal and trace the color along both the upper and lower lash lines. Then smudge it quickly using a fine, dry brush before Eye Seal dries to score a waterproof, smoky look.
# Blur the edges of stark eye pencil lines around your lash lines and brows by covering them with Eye Seal.
# To fix Glitter and Diamond Powder, use a damp brush to combine with Eye Seal or apply Eye Seal after tracing them across the skin.
# Use Eye Seal while using multiple eye colors. Just be sure to distribute the colors rapidly before the product dries out. You can always reapply a layer of Eye Seal to soften the shadows or liner for easier distribution.
# Always wait for Eye Seal to dry before moving your eyelids.

Lets talk makeup

Yesterday's topic was lashes, dramatic, fanciful and exotic lashes that most of you will not use. The idea is to take tips and incorporate them into your Carnival planning, for instance though feathered lashes might be too extreme for some, you can do individual lashes to get that extra definition in the eyes. To me we spend so much time obsessing over choosing the right costume, getting matching footwear and hitting the gym to fit into the skimpy costumes that it is short changing yourself by stopping short on putting the finish touches by not paying attention to makeup.

You do not need a professional makeup artist to put your best face forward, just some simple tools to get the job done. The basics would be primer, coverage such as a tinted moisturizer or foundation or powder, eye shadow in at least two colours to match your costume, eye pencil, mascara lipstick/gloss, fix it spray and blotting sheets. Additional decoration such as face jewels are easy to apply; just make sure and get some spirit gum or eyelash glue, matching stones (which you can get at a craft store or Samaroos in Trinidad) and have an idea of the design. One tip is to apply the glue to your face exactly where you want the stones to be placed as opposed to putting the glue on the stone itself. Blotting sheets are to be used AFTER your makeup application to absorb any excess sheen, use throughout the day instead of reapplying powder which will just cake when mixed with oil and sweat.

These are some examples of faces seen on the road for Carnival 2007; some are simple yet effective while others are more flamboyant in the decoration but I think all the ladies pictured here look great:

ORACLE SECTION X

Only two more sections of the Oracle to be revealed; section XI in 1 day and 18 hours!

SECTION X FEMALE (option a blue/green or option b red/orange) - $2,650



After the wreckage, there remains only the most vital of information,knowledge that will ultimately help in the designing of the highest image we hold of ourselves. For a time there will be a peace and serenity in this new found light of 'gnothi seauton' we have weathered the storm and found our truths in the process,we have also found many things that require urgent attention.


SECTION X MALE (option a blue/green or option b red/orange)- $2,550


Many things remain to be done, but knowing who we are is a giant step, if only it is to find out that who we are now, is not who we will be tomorrow, then the process must begin again, for some this process will be a cycle that finds it's end in theirs, for others this process will not even be visited, either which way, we will all one day return to the full knowledge of who we are, everything else is just the makings of a good story.
