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: 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.

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!

Festival Hair Inspiration

Osheaga hits Montreal and Veld Music Festival at Downsview Park in Toronto for a full 2 days this long weekend, and we’re excited to see what hairstyles will be making their way through the crowd. If you are looking for the perfect “do” to complete your look, we have some ideas for you!

 

The Flower Crown

One of the most obvious festival hairstyles that was popular at Coachella, the flower crown is at the top of our list. Crowns can be created with any flower, the bigger the better and the bolder.

Beauty Note: For extra holding power, start off with second-day hair & if you need an additional boost, spritz Garnier’s Dry Shampoo.

 

Waves & Braids

There are a lot of waves & braid combos, from side braids to braid crowns. For this particular look, braid sections of the hair back and pin it into a loose bun. Finish off by braiding the piece of hair directly below.

Beauty Note: Don’t forget your finishing spray! It will keep these locks into place as you dance all day and all night with Pantene’s Flexible Hold Spray.

 

Flower Accessories

Not into the flower crown? No problem! We have a pretty solution – flower accessories. You can find these little gems at any beauty supply store.

Beauty Note: For extra hold, spray the pin ‘prongs’ with hairspray before securing it in your hairstyle. You can add these pins to any look, a messy bun, a ponytail & more.

 

The Milkmaid Braid

Sarah Hyland‘s hairstyle at the Golden Globes is a perfect festival “do.” It keeps the hair up and out of your face, ideal for summer weather.

Beauty Note: To keep the braid in place, don’t forget to place bobby pins throughout to keep it secure.

 

Which festival hairstyle is your fave?
