Angel Joseph, founder of Imagine Make-up and Imagine Skin.

There are so many skilful make-up artists in the beauty world, it’s getting hard to keep up! Angel Joseph is one of them. But she isn’t just keeping up with the trends in a fast and growing industry; she also aims to change the game. The 29-year-old entrepreneur and founder of Imagine Makeup has conceptualised ‘Imagine Skin’, which is series of products that reflect Caribbean beauty. Joseph’s latest product, Imagine Skin, which includes Glow, a body shimmer by Imagine Skin, was conceptualised upon Joseph’s belief that ‘skin is in’.

Joseph discovered the world of beauty as a child, however, her entry into the beauty industry was not a direct shot. It wasn’t until after she completed a Master’s degree in Global Studies, that she decided to switch her career path to become a make-up artist.

The popular song ID was first heard on the 2016 hit “Bend Down”. It surfaced again on “Lit” on the Pim Pim Rididm featuring New York-based soca act Lyrikal (Devon Martin) in 2017, “One Woman” on the Ole Ting Riddim and “Jamish Feeling” on the Jamish Rididm in 2019.

A fresh outlook, a pivotal move; soca artiste, Ricardo Drue is proudly asserting himself as a mainstay to the Carnival energy, continuing on his mission to deliver great music, no matter what. This year, even as he stands solo, having exited the frontline of the All Starz band, Drue is driven to give the masses more than they ever expected.

Calypso icons and our current soca stars will once again be sharing the stage at “Calypso Spektakula Thru the Years”, February 1 at Queen’s Hall, St Ann’s; February 7 at Centre of Excellence in Macoya; and February 8 at the Southern Academy for Performing Arts, San Fernando. Can the current soca stars withstand the experience of our calypso legends as they display their versatility in the art form?

The conversation was, during the past couple weeks: What for the road, boy? SuperBlue with “Strange Things”? Mabey Kees Dieffenthaller with his, “Proud,” or the trio of Machel Montano, Skinny Fabulous and Iwer George with “Conchshell”.
