While glamming up with lipstick, eye shadow, blush and bronzer might not be for everyone, some women (myself included) love the stuff!

Yes, I know it’s Belize, and in these tropical climates, many choose to opt out of wearing the stuff all together. Some reserve applying a pop of glam only on special occasions and others love adding life to their outfits by extending their looks with a bit of contouring and natural gloss.

You see for me, make up is an extension of my attire and can seriously make a difference in adding that extra oomph to your look.  I enjoy make up, and trust me there has been times when my wallet has suffered the side effects of our little romance! But for me it’s totally worth it to splurge on something you love every now and again, right?! Exactly.

There are occasions however when you just don’t feel like doing it yourself, maybe you have yet to master the smokey eye without looking like you’ve been punched in the eye (LOL) or contouring; it can be tricky!

For graduations, weddings, birthdays and more a lot of islanders have been getting glammed up by local make-up artist Stephanie Manuel! Trust me, her work is amazing, so much so that she’s been a go to make-up artist for several of the Belikin Calendar  shoots, and make-up artist to the esteemed Miss San Pedro Pageants, and Miss San Pedro herself Michelle Nunez! Steff even did my make up for my baby shower a few months ago, and does it for many others as well.

About the Author: Tamara Sniffin

I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
