How do I really less heavily on the mask when singing high?

When singing higher in my chest voice, I feel like I'm overusing the mask. I'll sing "Dying in LA" by Panic! at the Disco and at the end I feel like my mask is saying "PLEASE... STOPPPP". Is there a way to remedy this?

    You generally do use more mask up high, but you also need to be aware of the trap of sounding nasally. Practicing getting the sound to project from further back might give you some room to move once you are up there so you aren't relying too much on it.

    Thank you @Wigs ! I always close my nose with my fingers when practicing (at least every now and then) to make sure I'm not singing nasally. By strengthening my chest voice and increasing range, could that help reduce reliance on the mask?
