Copy the og pattern into the pattern maker and redraw it with the rows/columns you need, that way it's easier to see the modifications that need to be made to the picturehklolly

If the mask isn't tall enough to cover you from nose to chin, add rows on top of the design. If the mask doesn't sit far enough out from your face, then you need a longer seam at the nose bridge. You'll need to take some beads out and make the V part you sew together deeper, so it makes a bigger pyramid that sits away from your face. You might need to add rows on top *and* deepen the V to make it fit your face.

(I haven't made a kandi mask before, but those are the adjustments I would make to a sewing pattern. Good luck!)
