Carnival season brings about an annual transformation to our city, and it also transforms the way people look. On Mardi Gras morning, step outside and you’ll find revelers in masks, headdresses, and otherworldly makeup. Artist Ingrid Victoria is best-known around town for transforming people’s eyelashes. She’s the founder of Chimera Lashes, and she joined NolaVie’s Kelley Crawford in the studio to talk about her eye-catching creations.
