Carnival each year brings a new sense or creative direction to me with make-up; it is my seasonal change of sorts you could say.
The world has the four seasons. I have Carnival. As soon as it approaches things change inside my head.
My head starts to spin with all the wonderful opportunities there are to create something bold and striking, yet tasteful and appealing. Trust me, it can be quite nerve-wracking as well. I see the face this time of year as my raw material for building art and structural beauty, and I want to showcase to you today what make-up can do to evoke the spirit of Carnival that is the pulse of our national pride.
