THE GLAM TEAM of iHeart make-up (Kamilah Codrington and Shanelle Estwick) has been the go-to make-up artistes for Baje International Grand Kadooment band for the past five years.

Estwick said this year was a big difference in terms of their creativity for the looks.

“We do a meeting before to gauge the look Baje International wants for each year so our creativity matches. This year they wanted to step outside the box.

“So we matched the eye shadows to go with main colours. “There is a look in particular where we used orange on the eyelid and complement it with orange holographic glitter.

“There is a turquoise in the backpack that we picked up and used underneath the eyes and used gems that reflected that same colour.”

Estwick said iHeart make-up also did the launch for the costumes and the photo shoot for the pictures seen here on the page.

“We had to get help for the launch as there were about 20 girls to get ready . . . Big thanks to Nicola Maynard and Akeem Francis.”

The team of iHeart said the routine was glam so it was “high cheekbones and heavily highlighted face with a flawless clean finish”.

“The main make-up that stood out was the section Firebird owned by Jin Forde . . . .  She gave us four or five looks.
