Hello again! Up next in the “13 Days of Halloween Makeup” is my masquerade look! Every since I was little, I have always fantasized about masquerade balls. I admired the beautiful costumes, the elegant black and gold colour-schemes, the gothic ambiance, and the mysterious masks. I sometimes wish I could go to Venice and experience the Carnevale di Venezia first-hand…maybe one day…
Time: 15-30 minutes
This look is very simple and can be recreated in no time (practical for those last minute Halloween costumes!). To start off, I used a white face paint and a translucent white powder as a base. In substitution, you could also use a very light shade of foundation. Then, I put the mask on, and just outlined the shape of the eye holes using black eyeshadow. After removing the mask, I filled in that eye shape with more eyeshadow, and added mascara and eyeliner. Afterwards, I contoured my cheekbones with dark brown, almost black eyeshadow, and filled in my lips with liquid eyeliner. I tied my hair back, threw on my mask, and was good to go!
Masquerade masks are very popular this time of year, and are easy to find in Halloween stores (I purchased mine at Dollarama for only a few dollars!).
