Having trouble finding yourself a great carnival makeup look this year? Fear not, we’re here to help with a Rihanna inspired makeup tutorial!


If you know Rihanna then you’ll know that she has consistently attended the Barbados carnivals over the years, so much so that she’s officially known as the ‘Queen of Carnival’. As one of the biggest events of the year there’s no doubt that you’re probably sitting at home wondering what to wear and how to do your makeup. Well the good thing is, Carnival is all about OTT outfits and exaggerated makeup looks, so the bigger the better! In this article we break down the 10 steps it takes to achieve this look, inspired by Rihanna’s 2015 carnival makeup . We’ll be concentrating on the eyes and lips, and leave the creative gem designs, hair and headdress to you. After all, it would be pretty embarrassing to look to your left and see someone who looked just like you!
