Hero may look honest, but she's not.
Her gentle smiles have fooled you and me too.

Her face is like a mask, disguising shame itself!

Much Ado about Nothing is Shakespeare's famous comedy about the war of power and understanding between men and women and the disguises they wear in their romantic relationships.
