Masquerade Hen Party

Welcome back ladies to Themed Thursdays! This week I uncover how to create one of the most stylish hen party looks! Yes, the Masquerade themed hen party!

A masquerade ball or bal masqué is an event which the participants attend in costume wearing a mask. Masquerade balls were a feature of the Carnival season in the 15th century, and involved increasingly elaborate pageants and processions celebrating marriages and other dynastic events.

Hen Party Masquerade Masks

There is something very seductive about wearing a masquerade mask and it gives that element of secrecy and with so many elaborate beautiful women’s mask available to purchase it’s the perfect way to celebrate your hen with elegance.A good idea might be to have all the hens in the same colour of mask all apart from the bride, to set her apart.(Below)Black Velvet Masquerade Mask with Tall Feathers £8.99 Golden Leopard Print Mask with Feathers £9.99, Masks (Half)Purple and Gold Flower Mask £7.99 White Swan Masquerade Mask £13.99. Pink Masquerade Mask on Stick £6.99 all available from partydelights.co.uk.


Masquerade Outfits

As the masks are quite elaborate I would keep your dress simple and elegant. When I think of Masquerade In think of dark colours and sumptuous materals so for example blacks, dark reds and deep purples .Why not add other accessories such as elbow length gloves in order to give that opulent regal look to your outfit or perhaps statement chandelier earings. (Below) Lipsy VIP Body Dress with Lace High Neck £95 available at lipsy stores or online at lipsy.co.uk. Bespoke Glass Chandelier Earrings £12 from Next. Long Black Gloves £2.08 available from funfancydress.com. Belted Bandeau pencil dress £48 available from ASOS.


Hen Party Makeup

Although there is an endless amount of beautiful masks on the market, and although you want to make an impression with the most audacious, striking, and alluring mask, it’s equally important for your base make-up to look flawless. Keep your make up in tune with the rest of your outfit and continue the dark theme with a burgundy lip and a dramatic black Smokey eye. You will know yourself how dark you can go on your lips for your skin tone but I would suggest that for those of you with fair skin should go for a lighter burgundy or red shade.(Below) Eylure Naturalites False Eyelashes 107 £5.39 available from Boots. .Estee Lauder pure Colour Envy £24 available from Debenhams and Boots store also online at esteelauder.co.uk.

I hope you have enjoyed reading this weeks ‘Masquerade Ball’ themed blog and hopefully it has inspired you for your upcoming celebration. The good thing about this particular theme is that you can still look elegant and stylish at the same time as making your party stand out. You can be as elaborate or understated as you wish by adding on or scaling back on the accessories.

Please come back next week when I will be sharing my tips on the ‘Ultimate Girls Night In’

Have a great weekend!!!
