Bling Mardi Gras Mask by Caroline Step 1
I began by loading a 3/4 short angled flat brush with the green one stroke (Borneo), starting in the centre of my forehead and working my way out.

At the corner of each eye I added 3 teardrops and then swept along my cheekbones coming in towards my nose.

I added bling by Acacia Tanner to the centre of the mask, fixing with body glue.

For the lips I used Deep magenta and the same teardrop brush as before. I then continued to add more teardrops.

Next I changed brushes to the Loew-Cornell number 3 round brush and loaded it with Diamond FX white, I then added more teardrops and dots to fill any gaps.

Finally I added eyeshadow, using Neon pink on my eyelids and white powder the highlight the below the brows.

As you can see I also decided to paint over the white dots I had previously painted on my lips.

I then added black eyeliner and mascara.

My flower crown was the perfect accessory for this mask, this was made by Andrea Moje from creative faces.
