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 a $60 prize (half in MAC, half in other high-end 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.

I thought I’d share my personal skincare routine, which isn’t much, with everyone. I’m still tweaking it a bit in some areas, and I’m hoping to add a bit to it eventually. I definitely don’t think any of these products will make a departure from the routine, though – that’s for sure!
I love makeup remover wipes for easy removal – no fuss, no mess, and it’s so quick to do. I find that these are perfect for those nights when you want to crawl in bed so badly, but remember you can’t sleep in makeup (so, so bad!). Grab one of these and you’ll be able to go to sleep guilt-free knowing you rid your pores of all the day’s dirt and grime. Always use these when I’m wearing super heavy eye makeup – like my all black smokey eye – because that’s just too much to rinse off! I don’t have a brand favorite; I’ll often buy whatever is on sale or even the generic brand. I don’t buy the ones in the container because these keep well in the plastic packaging. Or else just use any air-tight container you have at home!

What beauty product have you been wanting, but haven’t bought yet? Why haven’t you bought it yet? Too expensive, need to see a review on it, what keeps you from committing to the purchase?
What’s your favorite facial feature [on you!]? What feature of yours do you love to play up? Do you have pouty lips, wide eyes, adorable nose, envy-inspiring cheekbones – tell us!
Tweezerman has this darling travel set with their bestselling point and slant tweezers. If you think travel size is too small, think again — I swear by Tweezerman slant tweezers, and I only own the travel size. These babies are so precise and easy to use. The compact size gives you more control to get last stray brow hair gone (for at least a few days, ha!). Tweezerman will donate $1 for every set sold towards breast cancer awareness. $25 @ Nordstrom’s
