If you're heading for New Orleans for Mardi Gras (lucky you!) or a celebration close to home, to really get in the spirit of the day you need to think about your look. Will you dress in the purple, green, and gold colors, wear an elaborate mask, or a fetching costume in accordance with the traditions of Mardi Gras?
It can be a hassle to find costumes or a mask, but not so when it comes to makeup. Mardi Gras makeup is a lot of fun and if you have the right colors already in your stash, it is very striking. All you need is some inspiration and some mardi gras makeup tutorials.
