Halloween make-up: M.A.C. creations & Chess Board face

The UK and the US went wild this weekend with Halloween madness. Tulisa worked a severe ponytail and smokey eyes as Cat Woman on the X-Factor, and Jersey Shore's Snooki hosted a M.A.C Halloween Face Off challenge on the M.A.C. facebook page ( Six top M.A.C. make-up artists created fabulously wacky, crazy and a little bit scary Halloween faces, the winning look was Tim Burton meets Alexander McQueen inspired, the make-up artists described it as, "Hallow-Queen". To me it was less high fashion, more birds nest of death...! But please do make up your own mind:

If you are planning a Monday night of Halloween fun and still need inspiration, here are some of my favourite creations I captured on my adventures this weekend.

Doll Of Death

Mexican Sombrero of Terror

Boys love to wear make-up at Halloween

And as a little extra, my beautiful assistant Style Belle demonstrates how to create a fabulous chess board face...

Apply thick white paint as your base. I recommend applying with an art store paint brush and pot of paint

Pot of creamy white paint and large paint brush

Use a thinner paintbrush to carefully apply the black squares. Start by painting the outline of the square followed by filling in the middle with straight, thick strokes

Paint onto neck and fill in patchy areas with black. The finished look is almost there...

Add a slick of dark red lipstick and adorn with glam earrings. The chess board face is finished

What look is your favourite? Please do let me know what you think.
