Carnival makeup

Undecided about carnival makeup for this year? We reveal the right advice and some ideas to create an effective one!

For lovers of colours , laughter and disguises, the carnival is certainly the most eagerly awaited party of the whole year. Unlike Halloween, where you dress up as witches or vampires, at carnival you opt for more colorful and fun looks. It's a party loved by both adults and children, and it's the perfect opportunity to show off all our makeup imaginations. Sometimes, in fact, you don't need an impeccable dress or a realistic wig to be the center of attention.

Often the secret to the perfect disguise lies in the carnival make-up! Make up can really transform us into something else: into a fairy, a cat, an Indian… the limit is only our imagination! The key is to be creative and use bright colors that allow you to express yourself. There is no look that is too exaggerated or too subdued – it's just about finding something that works for your style and personality, but still fits into the lively atmosphere of carnivals ! There are so many ideas, from the simplest to the most complex. So let's find out together some carnival tricks for women (but also perfect for the little ones )!

Carnival eye makeup

So, how to do carnival makeup? Before starting with some advice, you need to decide on the final goal. The gaze is the most important part of the whole costume and, with the right colors and brushstrokes, it can express much more than the rest of the costume, without necessarily being difficult to achieve.

Advice? To experiment! We provide you with a basis but to get the result you want there is nothing more effective than standing in front of the mirror and working until you are satisfied with the result.

As a basis there is always pencil, eyeliner, mascara and eye shadow. After choosing the disguise, go and select the colors that are right for you and start "painting". For make-up to be effective it must be clearly visible and, to obtain an excellent result, eyeshadow is your winning weapon . An excellent starting point to create a carnival look, in fact, are the brightly colored eyeshadows. Colors like electric blue, bright pink or even neon yellow are perfect for this occasion!

Smokey eyes is the most popular technique to not go unnoticed, but also a careful use of eyeliner and pencils to outline the contours well can make the difference. Starting from the eyes you can draw an effective and fun mask, then it will be up to you and your skills to add colors and details.

Examples of carnival make-up for the face

Not only the eyes, the rest of the face is decisive, it outlines the character and makes the disguise practically complete. Again, our very first advice is to be patient and try, try, try. There are many examples from which to take inspiration, you can choose to make up your face with the appearance of an animal, reproduce a mask with make-up pencils directly on the skin, or imitate some cartoon character.

For the cat makeup , a true carnival classic, all you need is a black pencil, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick and black eyeshadow (for those who prefer smokey eyes makeup, you can blend the eyelid with light eyeshadow on white or gray). This trick is very simple to make, you can add a mustache, a nose and, to complete the look, a headband with cat ears .

Another very popular make up among girls is the Indiana carnival make up. Also in this case the steps are not difficult at all, you will just have to work with extreme precision to make lines as straight as possible and without smudges that draw a colored stripe that crosses your gaze. To make Indian makeup even more authentic, you can then draw tribal signs and fake tattoos on the face and body.

Carnival make-up: ideas for adults and children

A trick that will never go out of style, both for older and younger girls, is that of Minnie Mouse, Mickey's eternal girlfriend. In this case you should really add an inevitable accessory (a nice headband with Minnie ears and a small red bow with white polka dots).

The eyes will not have a great chromatic prominence, you will have to add a nice little black nose, a generous touch of blush and a nice lipstick : even two mustaches could be suitable and even a pair of freckles to complete the work. As for the dress, we know that Minnie loves to dress in polka dots, so a make-up and a dress with this fantasy is perfect.

Among the ideas for a particular carnival make-up there is also the unicorn make-up. Surely this trick will not let you go unnoticed, especially if you use glitter and bright colors . The watchword in this case is to exaggerate and have fun with rhinestones, glitter, pastel colors and bright colors. As a final touch, a headband with a horn.

Finally, a perfect idea as a make-up especially for little girls is that of a beautiful butterfly on the face. Also in this case you can indulge yourself with colors and shapes. It is good to remember that the skin of the little ones is more sensitive to make-up, so it is essential to use specific, non-allergenic and non-toxic products.
