Competition: Trick or Treat? Hallowe’en Challenge

October 29th, 2020

October 29th, 2020

You didn’t think we’d do Halloween without a #WarpaintChallenge, did you?  Our lovely friends at The Makeup Armoury are offering the most fantastic prize for all you ghoul and ghost lovers out there.  All you need to do is create an original piece of work to celebrate all things gruesome.

Your theme is Trick or Treat: you decide which one flicks your switch. Trick embodies the dark side of All Hallows Eve with monsters – or their victims – while Treat is your chance to present a more glamorous, fantasy creation.

You could win a Ben Nye Basic Moulage Special FX Makeup Training Kit, worth £195.  This sell-out kit contains everything required for a variety of traumas and is perfect for anyone looking to start practising their SFX Makeup skills.   It includes sufficient makeup products to create dozens of lacerations, wounds, burns, cyanosis, fractures and more.  Ideal for both student and experienced MUAs.  It contains both products, tools, guidance documents and comes in a carry case.  Click the link above for the full contents.

The challenge will be judged by Alice Lennon, Co-Founder and Director of The Makeup Armoury and the Warpaint team.


Your work must be on yourself or someone you share your home or social bubble with.

Cosmetic products only are to be used, no craft paints, craft glitters, etc.

Submissions are to be a maximum of three photos or one video.  Post these on your wall, if you post them in stories they will have expired before the judging.  They must be good quality so the judges can see the details clearly.

Tag @themakeuparmoury and @warpaint_mag in your entries – tag the photos please not just in the caption to ensure they are visible to be judged.

This must be new work created specifically for this competition.

Just be creative and – most importantly –  have fun!  What are you waiting for?

Terms and conditions

The decision of the judges is final.  Prize is non-transferable and there is no cash alternative.   International entries are welcome but you will be responsible for any import duties or custom charges that may be payable if you win.

Closing date is 12 noon (GMT) Monday 9th November 2020.  The winner will be announced on Instagram by 20th November 2020.
