Your Under the Dryer team continues its Carnival countdown with make-up pro Sasha Bowie. Oh, what a difference lashes can make!


Here's How To Get these looks:

1. Apply a primer; for this look use two to increase longevity of wear. First use a hydrating primer such as MAC's Prep & Prime Fix + spray. Allow face to dry and then apply a primer that will make skin tacky for the foundation to adhere to it and last longer (eg Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser.)

2. Now apply your foundation and set with any translucent setting powder.

3. To increase longevity of wear and to help make your make-up water-resistant use a setting spray at this point in your make-up application. (Try Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix setting spray.)

4. To get model Adrianna's first Carnival make-up look adhere two clear rhinestone gems to one side of the face using the cosmetic adhesive spirit gum. Here a flower design was made around each rhinestone using a stencil, glitter sealant & different coloured glitters. This step is optional.

5. The eyes were the real focus of this make-up design. Use a deep blue eyeshadow over the eyelids. In a circular motion work in pink or purple eyeshadow in the outer corner of the eyes. Blend the eyeshadow colours well with a fluffy eyeshadow brush.

6. Add any colour feather lashes at this point. Pink goes well with blue eyeshadow. There are a few key steps that make adding false lashes easier and last longer. First, curl lashes with an eyelash-curler. Apply waterproof mascara to the lashes. This will curl and lengthen lashes making application of the faux lashes easier. Use a waterproof eyelash adhesive (eg DUO eyelash glue) to adhere the feather lashes to your own lashes. Next, tweezers can be used to carefully squeeze faux lashes to real ones at the very base of the lashes. Lastly use a mascara wand to brush lashes upwards with feather lashes on causing them to come together even more.

7. To complete this look, apply a bright pink liquid to matte lipstick, or any colour of your choice (e.g. Maybelline Matte Ink Stay lipsticks.)

8. Finish off with a short bursts of setting spray all over the face, again.

For model Adrianna's second look a slight change was made that gave an instantly glam Carnival make-up look. Adrianna is wearing this make-up design in her bejewelled swimwear. Read more on the simple change to achieve the look.


1. Follow all the steps above, except the application of the stencil flowers.

2. Instead, after adhering the two rhinestones to the side of the face. Use spirit gum and add clear rhinestones to the face, making a circular pattern around the original rhinestone. Instead of having a stencil flower, this design looks more like two rhinestone gem flowers. A very simple difference, giving a bolder Carnival make-up design!
