Goosebump’s Shrunken Head by artist @trashleysface.
What’s so striking about this look is the bold pop of green and insane
detail. Just look at those eyes! This is brush technique at it’s best.
The blending, the strokes, the highlights, and shadows all come together
beautifully to create the look of old, weathered skin. The use of
black background and black body paint to void out the rest of the body
really makes it look like this head is floating in space! The artist
uses CreamBlend, Touchup Anti-Shine, and Paradise Makeup AQ to achieve

Fire Skull by artist @damngoodface. This is just
such a cool makeup application. Not only the body paint, but the 3D
props adhered onto the head and shoulder. It really gives the illusion
of being on fire. The artist chose EDGE Face & Body Makeup for the
stark black and white of a classic skeleton and our Paradise Makeup AQ
for the blended hues of orange, yellow, and red flames. This look
brings a beautiful illusion and unique look to a classic Halloween

Sam Hain from the Horror film Trick r Treat by
artist @mannyreymakeup. This artist is another returning contestant in
our contest. He is a master body painter and really takes his art to the
next level with props and accessories. Sam Hain has been a huge
character circulating this Halloween season and we love this artist’s
interpretation of the character, not to mention the long list of Mehron
products used to create this masterpiece! Bald Caps, Spirit Gum and
Remover, Liquid Latex, Setting Powder, Mixing Liquid, Liquid Makeup, and Paradise Makeup AQ all were used in the making of this look.

Soul of Lava by artist @vivantiwari_official. This
was inspired by the film Moana and who doesn’t love a good Disney movie?
We also enjoyed this artist’s take on a classic child’s film full of
colorful cartoon characters, but putting a darker more artistic spin on
it. Anything 3D will always be eye popping as well! This looks like a
time-consuming application with all the pieces of molten rock glued to
her skin and the bright colors of Paradise Makeup AQ and EDGE peaking
through to create the look of scorching lava.

Viperine Snake by artist @makemeunusual. We love
the detail in this look, especially the intricate design on the face.
The artist creates a beautiful illusion of a snake slithering through
her soul and exiting out of her mouth using our Paradise Makeup AQ 30 Color Palette. The entering of the snake turns her into one as well,
hence the snake like features of the eyes and scaly neck. We love the
concept of this and the application.

Male Medusa Skeleton Demon by artist
@christiiquin. This is quite the combo of ideas and looks. Medusa,
Demons, and Skeletons? Why not all 3! This look is so creative and fun.
The detail in the face and neck alone are jaw dropping. We can see why
this artist used our Skin Prep Pro ahead of time to prep the skin to
hold this amount of paint, prosthetics, and accessories. Our Paradise Makeup AQ brings the entire character to life with bold shades of green
and a few hints of red. This artist really stepped outside the box with

Creepy Creature with 1000 Eyes by artist
@bleedinbeauty. Another unique look inspired by Pixies and Devils.
This looks like it came straight out of someone’s nightmare and we love
everything about it. What makes this so interesting is that all of the
eyes are really popping off the skin and have their own 3D lashes. It
brings this character more life as opposed to painting all the detail on
2 dimensionally. We really love that touch. This artist used a ton of
Mehron as well…Liquid Latex, Clown White, Paradise Makeup AQ, and
topped it all off with Stage Blood.
