Masquerade

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.

I'm sorry to say that I took the easy way out when it came to the clothes and simply wore all black.


Happy Halloween!

  2. Too bad the mask kept slipping - it looks great! And I second you on Quo last duo, I bought some last year when I was in Edmonton and it was terrible.

  3. Very cute! I've had the same experience with masks and avoid them now due to the inevitable discomfort. But you look great.

    And kudos for attempting false eyelashes (which get much easier with practice) and red lippy. They are fun things to play with, while being daunting at first. I almost give up on them after my first few disasterous attempts but am glad I didn't.

    Hope you had fun!
