The 48th annual Caribana Toronto Festival is today! This entire weekend, Toronto will be absorbed with infectious feel-goob vibes, music and more, as the vibrant costumes and bold makeup looks dance their way down Lakeshore Blvd. And with over a million tourists expected this weekend, everyone is going to be rocking the boldest colors, the most extravagant looks and definitely the most sparkle from head to toe (literally)!

We have gathered some inspirational photos and tips to create the best and definitely the longest lasting makeup looks.

Beauty Note: For luscious lashes, ones that you can bat the day and the night away, we love Mink LashesFemme Fatale lashes, specifically A Girl’s Best Friend and Mr.Demille (shown below).

Beauty Note: Whether it be sparkly lips or lids, there are multiple ways to help the glitter adhere to the skin better. Firstly, start with moisturizer. Secondly, you can use Vaseline Petroleum Jelly or a mixing medium, which creates base for the glitter to stick to. For your lips specifically, mixing the glitter with clear lipgloss or balm works well.

Beauty Note: To create some vibrant lids, Maybelline New York’s 24HR Color Tattoo Collection is highly pigmented and will last you through the day and all through the night.

Rihanna, Caribana, Caribana Makeup


To end off our list, we had to finish off with the fabulous Rihanna. She shocked everyone last year in this bejewelled number that turned more than a few heads. Filled in brows, black liner on her lids with a touch of shimmer on the inner corners of her eyes, and a matte nude lip was perfectly paired with her glitzy carnival costume.


Beauty Note: To add more “oomph” to those lashes, Dior’s Addict-It Colored Mascaras from their summer collection is perfect. You can match it to your parade costume or simple have your lashes stand out, making a bold statement on their own!
