Masked Ball Makeup featuring YSL Violet Edition Glossy Stain

 

Hello from Canberra!

A few months ago, when I was still living in Melbourne, I went to a charity masquerade ball. It was my first masked ball, so of course I was pretty excited about coming up with a hair and makeup look for the night. I like the idea of a dark vampy lip worn with a venetian mask- there’s a bit of drama and mystery to the vampy lip that I think works well here. I regret not taking a picture of my mask- it’s a black lacy looking cats eye thing.

This YSL Glossy Stain lasted me all night through eating and drinking, it really is phenomenal in terms of longevity.
