Can't find the right costume?
Look no further than your or your mom's -- with permission, of course -- makeup stash. If you have a friend with an artistic eye and steady hand, maccosmetics.com features dozens of looks created by the company's makeup artists.
Categories include abstracts, accidents and stitches, animals and insects, monsters and sci-fi. The skeletal look shown at left is Skin Deep, with the serpent Surprise at right. Figuring prominently in both looks is the eye shadow Carbon ($13.50) and, in the latter, the eye kohls Hyacinth and Fascinating ($13.50 each).
There's also a guide to getting the look of Pamela Anderson or Christina Aguilera, which for some could be just as scary as any Halloween ghoul.
