Step 1: Gather your supplies! You’ll need: 2 white masks, Benefit tissue paper (available with any Benefit purchase online or at-counter), a water-based adhesive glue, glitter, rhinestones and pretty pink feathers!

 

Step 2: Lay down some newspaper. Grab your white mask, tissue paper and adhesive glue. Start by layering the tissue paper over the mask, then apply a thick layer of glue on top. Once the glue has dried, remove excess tissue paper around the mask and in eye holes.

 

Step 3: Apply one more thin layer of glue, then sprinkle your favorite glitter over the mask. Note: You can never have too much glitter. Let dry.

 

Step 4: Glue any other rhinestones & feathers where you see fit to make your mask the prettiest of them all!

 

Step 5: Grab your bestie & pour yourself a drink!
