Masquerade Makeup: Drama if you dare.

A few weekends ago we went to a masquerade ball. Of course I wanted to do big, dramatic makeup for it lol. It was a really good night... when they started playing good music lol. The dress code was meant to be strict but there were quite a few people in short club dresses and people without masks... which is not what a masquerade ball is about! lol. Anyway, apart from that, it was reallly hot in the ball area and because my mask was tucked into my hair it was hard to take it off without my eyes smudging lol.

 Before changing:

Australis Paparazzi Perfect fdtn
Coastal scents concealer palette
Nars Orgasm
Nude by Nature Eye Definer- contour
Nyx Chrome White E/S- Highlighter

Nyx JEP Black Bean- Cut into crease, outer lid, lower lash line. Cut
Nyx JEP Cottage Cheese- Inner lid, highlighting.
1. Stila Kitten- Inner Lid
Sleek Bad Girl- 2. Gun Metal 3.Underground 4. Noir
5. Blade 6. Innocence
Glitter: MKA Glitter.
 BYS lashes- Starlette

Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brule & Nyx Sugarpie L/G

To get the sharp line in the crease firstly I made a rough line with Black Bean and a small eyeliner brush and then I went over it with Noir & an angled eyeliner brush for further definition. I really like how it turned out :)

A few things I'd like to point out:
Eyelashes: One went on weirdly so I had to pull it off and put it back on, removing some of the eyeliner. I  fixed it after the pics.
Also the eyes aren't completely even, but I didn't want to ruin the whole thing to fix that lol. And I wasn't too keen on the lip colour for some reason IDK why... but I didn't reapply anyway lol.

In my dress  (Don't have any full length pics yet!)
 Looking creepy in my mask ahah.

Thanks so much for looking, hope you like! xx


  1. Your eyes look stunning here. Both eyes look pretty even to me! But I know what you mean because I feel like my eyes are never even. Ugh I hate when people don't go all out for dress-up events like that, it takes away some of the fun! Btw NARS Orgasm looks amazing on you... and I really like the lips even though you didn[t =) I really wanted to nomiate you for this blog award by the way but the requirement was that they have less than 200 followers :( XOX

    1. Thanks so much lovely lady!
      I know right, what's the point of having a theme then!? I thought well I wont be going to a ball for a while so why not get dressed up properly, lol.
      Thanks hun I don't think the blush really showed up in these pics... and I may or may not have mixed it with another blush haha. And the lips... IDK I like the colour but I think it washes me out?
      Aww that's ok its the thought that counts, anyway!

    2. I *always* feel like super nude lips wash me out too! But then I see them in other people's pictures and it looks so glamorous... So you look glamorous :D haha
