MAC Cosmetics has put up their famous Halloween face charts! These are great to copy, find inspiration from, or simply admire. In fact, they are perfect for Temptalia’s October contest, too. I included a few more of my favorites, but there are many more to view at www.maccosmetics.com.

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.
