    Default Accessories and Makeup help needed!

    I know accessories will be fairly minimal... but I need help anyway. I need AT LEAST one item of jewellery to add and I don't think anything I already own will work. I suck with these kinds of accessories.

    Now keep in mind, I'm attending a masquerade ball. I'm allowed to be OTT. Here's what I'm wearing...

    My wig: 74775_10151294594233846_1653917022_n.jpg

    My mask (but I've remade it in red): 1384146_10151951264693846_1293485265_n.jpg

    My dress: peek_a_boo_dress_6.jpg

    My shoes: 4023300.jpg

    I assume red lips will likely be TOO OTT... do I go for a champagne-y coloured eyeshadow as that's what the lining on the dress is?

    And what jewellery? I don't know if earrings will really be seen under all that hair... (I may style the hair differently to the pic, but it will still cover my ears a bit I think)... no room for a necklace... do I do some bangles or something? A ring?

    What nail polish and lip colour?

    I'm borrowing a champagne-coloured bag.

    THANK YOU! I suck with accessorizing. It's not my thing.

    What about champagne eye shadow and maybe a similar coloured choker?

    Beautiful 😊 I think to show off the neckline of the dress and mask I'd wear my hair up. The side part pulled back do in the pic of the mask looked really good. Maybe a nice chic low bun?

    Lips I'd go red.

    I'd wear a bangle with it and that's probably it. I think the dress/mask/shoes are enough.

    I'm no expert but I think your makeup should look like this

    Not red, red lips, but still with some colour.

    I think champagne nails and for jewellery, nothing around your neck, but some earrings and a bracelet. Earrings something like these
