Masquerade Party

Okay, so I didn't exactly go to a masquerade party, but the pics above are from an event held at my university. I love fancy masks, so I just had to take pics with the masks on. Each mask is so different & it's amazing to look at all the details. I was actually going to buy one around 2 years ago, but it was for around $50 & I decided I'd rather spend that money elsewhere instead of on a mask that I'll probably never wear.

In my previous post (a fresh take on a spring look) I mentioned that for the 2nd part of Janet's contest I did a masquerade themed look. I tried to keep the colours somewhat similar to the spring look, so I used lilac & pink. It turned out to be a major flop but it was my first try at this kinda look & I was on a study break so I didn't want to do something that would require too much blending, so here's what it ended up looking like.

I know, it doesn't do the masks shown in the first pic any justice. Nothing too fancy. Didn't go all out either. If I didn't have exams I def would've done something better. But oh well, at least I took something out of this look. Now I def know that if I ever do a masquerade look again , instead of having that pointy thing downward on my nose, it should be the other way around. I thought it would look too much like goggles if I did it that way, but what I have in the pic, makes my long nose look even longer, lol.

Did you have a good laugh? :P
