I love painting lace and black is perfect for any party! This design will look good in any colour though.  Follow these steps and create your own sexy mask!

A good brush is essential and I love the consistency of Diamond FX, as it's almost chalky and flows beautifully.

Supplies used:

Diamond FX - Black
Global Colours - Deep Magenta
Eliza Griffith Powders in Black, White and Gold
Paint Pal Swirl Round Brush #1
Paradise Petal Tip Brush #818
TAG Round Brush #3 (for powders)
Bling by Acacia Tanner

I originally planned to use a liner brush for the fine details. But the Paint Pal Swirl # was amazing and I could have done it all with one brush!

Method

I began by placing some of Acacia Tanner's beautiful bling in the centre of my forehead. Using a body glue/pros aide. Let the glue get tacky before applying the bling.

I was wearing a light day make-up, so I already had some White powder on my eyelids and brow line. It's good to highlight those areas, especially when the eyelids are small like mine!

Next I painted 3 teardrops on either side of the bling and then marked out the eye area. For this I used a swirl number 1 and Diamond FX black facepaint.

I then added swirls in the 3 points around the eyes.

Teardrops and swirls are brilliant for masks. I connected the bottom swirls and it pulls the design together.

Continuing with the same brush and paint, I added more teardrops in the centre and swirls coming into the centre.

I continued to add more teardrops on my forehead and around my eyes.

To fill the gaps under my eye area, I added more swirls, using the same brush.

I added some black lines on the brow line, as I wanted to slightly change it around my eyes.

I then continued to add more teardrops, to add interest and fill any big spaces. I also added more details to the nose area.

The next step surprised me. Usually I would use a liner brush. But the swirl number 1. Has a lovely fine point which worked just as well!

I joined up the teardrops in the same way as painting a spider web.

I filled the area on the brow line with a swirl in the centre and continued adding more lace detail. When painting lace, all lines must be connected.

Eliza Griffith black powder is my favourite for creating shadows. I also used it to shade the eye socket. I then covered the eyes in a gold powder also by Eliza Griffith.

Finally I choose deep magenta by global for the lips. I could of used red, but purple fits perfectly and it's a colour of royalty, so if your going glam you can't get a better colour!
