Additional Craft Information:

When attending a masquerade party, you go over-board with the kind of Venetian masquerade masks you will wear, hardly giving a thought to your makeup if not to your costume. You can use the following tips and avoid over or under doing your makeup and costume.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

You don't have much to do when it comes to makeup as most of your face is covered, but you can be creative and experimental when it comes to costume. Here are a few tips that will help you prepare for the Venetian carnival masks party.

When doing your makeup there are a few tips to remember before you get started.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).
  • Wear a water proof or water resistant makeup. Even though the party place isn't hot your face is bound to sweat, as it is covered under the Venetian Masquerade masks.
  • Give your face a clean look; avoid heavy makeup or face shaping. Rather use a light colored blush that will give your face a sharper look.
  • Wear a bold lipstick to match your mask.
  • Concentrate your makeup on eyes as they will be prominently seen under your Venetian carnival masks.
  • Don't extent your eye makeup beyond where your mask is going to lay, because one it will stain the inside of your mask and two it is of no use.
  • Apply thick smudged eyeliner both below and above you eye.
  • Use eye shaded that complements your costume.
  • If your eyelashes are not sharp and long, you can consider artificial eyelashes.
  • Contact lenses will also enhance the look of your eye, giving you a new look and confidence.

Costume Tips:

  • Themed Costume – Pick a famous character or someone who is despised or adored. Wear a character styled costume that will work well with the mood. You can dress up as a French aristocrat.
  • Mysterious look – Wear an all black outfit and appear as a dark mysterious stranger who tries to blend in the crowd. You can wear a black suit, or a long black dress, or a black slack with polo sweater. Black will also help disguise the body shape and make you look thinner. Team your outfit with a hat to give you a perfect look.
  • Flamboyant Star – Wear a lavish red or black evening dress with a flamboyant mask. Match it with a glittery, captivating and dazzling costume. A feather scarf around your shoulders will make you look like a star.

Party goers can choose to dress extravagantly or be incognito or as the belle of the ball for a masquerade party. Whatever you choose to were, make sure your outfit perfectly reflects your mood of your mask.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
