Carnivále Mask Makeup Tutorial.

 Hey Guys:)
I finally got around to trying out my first ever mask makeup!!
I was inspired by Carnival, Galway's Arts festival, Gypsy aesthetics & Fortune tellers. And I was largely drawing from my love of the brilliant TV Show "Carnivále" which I was obsessed with when I finally discovered it. (It's amazing, ye should really check it out!!)
Anyhow, as with my previous artistic Makeup tutorials in this vein, I made it up as I went along and was pleased with how it turned out!!
Let me know whet ye think ^_^
(Oh and that massive Bindi on my forehead has been sitting in my drawer for almost 10 years unused, crazy!! I think I bought it in a shop in London somewhere. I actually think it's a belly button design!!)
