With October comes Halloween, on the 31st, and because Temptalia is all about creativity and makeup, we want to see what our readers can come up with to celebrate the holiday through the powers of beauty and artistry!

Introducing… Temptalia’s Halloween Mask Challenge!

Show off your talent by creating a face mask that you might see as part of a Halloween contest — this means the content of your mask is quite open-ended, as there are an endless number of costumes one might wear for the spooky night. The mask must be made using makeup (props are welcome), and it must appear on a person, whether it’s you or a model.

Winner receives $30 in MAC products and $30 in beauty products. There will be one grand prize winner, but there will also be a smaller prize that goes to the person who wins the “readers’ choice” award!

Contest ends October 31st, 2007.

Keep reading to view the details, contest rules, and see some examples of past MAC Cosmetics Halloween face charts for inspiration.

Last reminder! The contest ends on Sunday!

If you haven’t noticed, in the past couple days, I have posted swatches of various products I own by MAC Cosmetics, to help everyone learn what color I mean or how it looks. I’d LOVE to make Temptalia a more comprehensive site with even more swatches and product photos, because I definitely do not have all the bases covered.

This is where you come in! Submit your product and swatch photos of MAC Cosmetics products to us.

What’s the incentive? The person to submit the most usable product/swatch photos from now until September 30th, 2007 will win ~$100 worth of an assortment of MAC Cosmetics products from In 3D, Painterly, Blue Storm, and/or Smoke Signals. If enough people enter the contest, there will be 2nd and 3rd place winners as well!
