Halloween is our kinda holiday! And, let's be honest, who does the scary night better than makeup artists?! For today's Throwback Thursdays, our beauty crew submits pics from Halloweens past. Enjoy. And, please, try at home.
(PICTURED ABOVE) This is the makeup I did for Hamish Bowles as the late Cabaret star, Marlene Dietrich, last Halloween. Transforming Hamish to channel icon Marlene Dietrich was a lot of fun. However, trying to catch him a cab after when the first blizzard fell on New York City was not.

I did my sister Ashley's make up, my husband's make up (picutred with me) and my own make up. Our inspiration was "The Haunted Mansion" at Disneyland. We all wanted to look like dead people from the past. Its amazing what a little make up and hair can do!

In 2011 I was lucky enough to work on the amazing foster kids from an organization called Kids Save International. He wanted the Incredible Hulk and I didn’t know what I was doing but he liked it!

Two years ago, for Halloween, I dressed up as the Queen of Hearts. I was inspired by the Tim Burton movie Alice in Wonderland. I thought that the Queen had such fun makeup in the movie and I wanted to try to duplicate it on myself! I went to a Halloween party that weekend and I had such a blast saying "Off with their heads!" I met a couple of Mad Hatters at that party too. Lol

This is the look I created for Kelly Wearstler for Halloween in 2011. The costume was inspired by corpse bride but with a modern twist: top-hat, pearls, etc. I wanted her to look scary in a really cool, sexy way! I used a pale foundation to wash out the natural skin color and created "eye-sockets" as you would see on a skeleton skull, using a combination of black cream and powder eyeshadows. I added big false lashes for the sexiness. And of course, black lips completed the look.

I wish Día de los Muertos was in May… or maybe even June. And while a monster mouth is appropriate all year long, I find it particularly fun as a Spring/Summer look. It says, "Hey, just because the sun is shining doesn't mean my inner goth has to stay hidden." As demonstrated by my frequent accomplice Beck, just add some pretty Chanel eyeshadow and you have a Tim Burton couture look!

Tomorrow marks the official start of fall. And these October covers are just what the doctor ordered to put us in the autumnal mood. Thanks to our artists for reminding us that be it a bright lip, tousled tresses or waxed denim; the most coveted gloss for the Fall season can best be found in the pages of a magazine.
