Mardi Gras is a celebration complete with costumes and masks—I can’t think of a better time to experiment with your makeup. The carnival celebrations are only a week away and I’m feeling festive so I thought I’d share some fun, Mardi Gras-colored makeup.

If you’ve never tried colored mascara, Mardi Gras is the perfect time to test out green lashes. Or try that bright purple eyeshadow you’ve been thinking about. And there aren’t very many opportunities to wear glitter, so take advantage of this one. The best part is even if your look goes totally awry; you can always wear a mask!
