Mardi Gras Mask by Ulianka

Posted by on

Mardi Gras celebrations are very close, so today I am painting a one stroke mask inspired by Mardi Gras parades.

Mardi Gras Mask Makeup Tutorial

1. With a pink/orange/yellow palette and a 3/4 inch flat brush paint in a mask.

2. Add white at the top of the mask elements and brown on the bottom parts.

3. With the side of a 3/4 inch flat brush, paint a feather shape around the central element. I used purple/blue/yellow colours.

4. Use some gems or  bling to decorate the centre. With a liner brush and plum colour, add more detail to the feather.
