I usually put no thought into Halloween costumes so I was pretty impressed with myself when I bought a mask a week in advance.
I decided to have a little fun with my makeup by using fake eyelashes and doing a bright red lip. (First time for both!) Note to Canadians: don't use Quo lash glue! It comes out very tacky which makes it hard reposition the lashes if you make a mistake. I had glue strings going everywhere! I also decided to curl my hair which is something I hadn't done before either (I'm usually a flat iron user). I used a one inch curling wand and I was really happy with the result.
I picked the mask up at Aldo and I loved it because it reminded me a lot of a Venetian mask. Unfortunately it used ribbon instead of elastic to secure it in place and it kept slipping down my face which made it very uncomfortable to wear. I gave up on the mask after about an hour.
