Here's the look:
1. I started by drawing the outline of a mask and filling it in with white cream makeup (the kind you get at Halloween stores). I also applied my eyeliner and mascara at this point.
2. I filled in the whole mask with different colors of eyeshadow - I used the UD♥NYC palette for this. The white cream acted as a great base for the colors I was using.
3. Then I added jewels using lash glue. I picked up a set of assorted faceted jewels (840 pieces) at Michael's for just a few dollars.
4. To complete the look, I added long feathery lashes.
For my lips, I applied a light pink lipstick. For my hair, I used a 1-inch curling iron to add some loose curls and volume.
I loved creating this look. It's colorful and much more fun than just buying a mask at the store. It didn't take too long either. The only part that was time consuming was filling in the mask with eyeshadow; everything else was really quick.
How do you like this masquerade look? Would you try something similar?
