Share Your Halloween Makeup on Temptalia!

Happy Halloween! :)  My favorite part about Halloween is the candy, but I have a bit of a sugar tooth when it comes to candy bars that needs to be indulged once or twice a year… and Halloween is a good excuse to do so!  (I love Snickers, mmm!)  If you’ve missed it, I’m not dressing up this year–in fact, I haven’t done so for ten years now–but I am dressing up my dog, which is way more entertaining!

I would love, however, to invite Temptalia readers to show off their fun Halloween makeup, because I am sure there are plenty of you going out in full costume and we’d all love to see!  (And perhaps, get a little inspiration for next year!)

How-to Submit Your Look:

  • Three (3) high quality images minimum
  • Pictures must be at least 500 pixels wide
  • You can send me the original file to edit
  • No watermarks
  • List/description of what products you used

Submit your Halloween looks to [email protected]. We’ll take submissions through November 2nd, 2009.

It’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s… SUPERDOG!


Where’s trouble?

Kalie switched up MAC’s Fierce & Fabulous face chart — I love it when someone gets inspired and makes it their own!

Kalie’s Inspiration

I recreated the Fierce & Fabulous facechart. I did change it a bit by adding darker lips, darker more defined brows, and instead of a blush I just did a very intense contour of the face. I thought all of this would make the look more warrior-esque.

Get the Look

  • Eyes: Too Faced Shadow Insurance, MAC Chrome Yellow eyeshadow, MAC Wedge eyeshadow, MAC Vanilla pigment, Prestige white eyeliner, MAC Blacktrack fluidline, MUFE Smoky Lash mascara
  • Face: Bobbi Brown invisible coverage foundation in Alabaster, MAC Strada blusher, MAC Vanilla pigment
  • Lips: Benefit Ms. Behavin’ silky finish lipstick

The team over at Reanamation Studios was inspired by the women of the U.S. military. Reana Leena was the makeup artist, Teresa Wood was responsible for wardrobe and photography, and Natalie Lageder was the model. Enjoy!

Reana’s Inspiration

I decided that there was no need to look around the world for an exotic warrior woman. We are from Oceanside, CA, home of the Camp Pendleton United States Marine Corps base. There are so many brave “warrior” woman fighting in the US military and this photo shoot is a way to celebrate their heroism.

Here’s another entry into our Warrior Women Challenge! This time we have a dark, sultry look by Ina. To clarify, there are no winners, no prizes, and no awards in Temptalia Challenges. Challenges are designed to inspire and share creativity. You will see entries for our latest challenge throughout the week! :)

Ina’s Inspiration

When talking about warrior woman I think about the woman in old Sparta, they lived in a warrior town and were trained to fight and to teach their children to fight for their city. In city of Sparta woman learned to speak their mind, they had more rights then other woman in Greek. They had to be strong to have healthy and strong children. From all Greek people came to se the beautiful women of Sparta fight. It’s from this culture is took my inspiration!
