    The Masskara (a blend of the English word “mass” and the Spanish “kara,” signifying “face”). I do NOT think this is the origin of “MASSKARA” as suggested. It comes from the Spanish word “máscara” (pronounced, ‘mas cara). A ‘máscara’ or sometimes referred to as ‘careta’ is something you wear or put on your face to hide the true physical identity of your face so no one would know who you are.
