If you're celebrating Mardi Gras this year, then you're going to need some of the brightest, sparkliest makeup you can get your hands on. Here's what to kit yourself out with so you can join in the fun and be as fabulous as possible.

Sephora Collection, Colorful Magnetic Eyeshadow, $14

There's a whole colour range of these ultra-metallic and ultra-sparkly glitter effects eyeshadows. They come in two luminous effects: metal and sequins. Apply as much as you like for an intense look, and shimmer all night long.

Get super intense colour with gorgeous shades such as Emerald Forest Shimmer from Trinny London. They have an intense buildable pigment so you can just apply them with your finger, and use as much, or as little as you like, depending on the look you're trying to achieve.
