MASK(p)arade is a creative fashion beauty photography series by Julia Pogodina that uses the concept of masquerading beauties.

Styled by Dina Yassin, the models flaunt assorted masks and heavy makeup. The masks range from the humorous clownish and sexy Mardi Gras-style masks down to a terror-inducing gas mask and animalistic pig face mask.

My personal favorite is the skin-peeling mask. It reflects someone retiring from living behind a mask and revealing their true self and feelings.
