IDIOM - "somebody's mask slips"

Post  Vincent Law on Sat Sep 08, 2012 7:35 am

If someone's mask slips, they do something which shows people their real personality, when they have been pretending to be a different, usually nicer, type of person.

Usage notes: A mask is something that covers your face to hide it.

Ex: "His mask had suddenly slipped, and she saw him as the angry and cruel man that he really was."
