Ah yes! That time of year is here again, the sweet sound of soca is in every direction, every street corner, bar, savannah and pan yard is ripe with bacchanal, and, our rich culture is on display for the whole world to see. Yup!It’s Carnival time in Trinidad & Tobago!

By now, you’ve collected your costume, tried it on, began practicing your ‘candid’ poses so that even in the revelry you could get a dope picture, and have been scouring makeup looks to send to your MUA so that when you sit on that chair at 3am on Tuesday, she’s prepared. BUTTTTT, there’s one thing missing, that one small detail to highlight your entire season- It’s Body Shimmer!

Not to worry though, check out these Trinbagonian brands bringing you that glow life!
