Last Month's Challenge


April Makeup Challenge

Runs until April 30, 2019

Hello! Thank you for visiting the MostlyDead challenge page. PLEASE READ EVERYTHING THAT FOLLOWS!

Each month we hold a new challenge that is open to everyone. Each month we give away a gift cerificate code to the lucky winner, and sometimes other prizes as well.

Winner receives a $100 gift card and if there are 10 or more QUALIFIED entries into the contest, we will also give out 2nd and 3rd place prizes as well, so if you have friends that you think would enjoy this contest, please tag them in our social media announcements about it, or send them a link to this page.

We are starting 2019 out with a series of challenges that pay homage to our favorite classic horror monsters. Most of them will probably have a little twist, because we are a little twisted…


 Is it April already??? Apparently it is. Sadly, that means that this is the last month for our Classic Horror Monster series. Don’t worry though, I’m sure we’ll come up with something just as thrilling for the next few months.

 So…which monster is going to be our final one for this series? Well, as spring sets in and the cold weather melts away and the ground starts to thaw, the earth is left moist and pliable...which is a great opportunity to crawl out of your tomb and find your long lost love while wreaking havoc on the world!

 Yes, this month we are on an ancient archeological dig looking for that long dead prince...the one who has been dead and mummified for hundreds of years...the one who will rise up and… win the Mostlydead Makeup Challenge!

 Bring us to your mummy! 

Now, we’ve seen all kinds of mummies through the years. Everything from Boris Karloff wrapped in bandages-to that guy that kept chasing Brendan Frasier around -to Ceelo Green hanging around with Adam Sandler in a big old castle - to our very own “Hungry Zombie” mask starring (well, at least on the cover) as an ancient mummy who feeds on college students…

(It’s true...don’t watch it)

But this month it is all about your very own mummy...whether wrapped up tight in gauzy fabric or donning an ancient egyptian headdress, we know you love your mummy, so chant the words to that curse and bring your mummy to crisp, clear, HD digital life.

...We’ll be waiting up!

THIS PART IS NEW: We are thinking that it is time to split this contest into 2 separate groups because we have been getting a large range of beginner artists and experienced ones. This month we would like you to state in your email whether you consider yourself a beginner-intermediate makeup artist or an experienced-professional makeup artist. This way we can start to split up the groups. This month we will do the prizes like we normally do with the caveat that if we get some beginner/ intermediate artists, we will give away a special prize for that group as well.

NOTE: Some of you have been submitting the names and social media ID’s of your models and photographers. It’s great that you are crediting everyone involved, and we encourage you to do so on your social media pages, when you post the photos to social media. We always post the social media ID's of the MUA so people can visit their page and see other credits there, but since this is a makeup contest for makeup artists, we will only be announcing and tagging the names of the makeup artists. There should only be one MUA working on each piece, so there will be one name mentioned for each entry. Your models and photographers absolutely deserve credit for their work, but this is up to you to put on your page. Our announcements will only mention the makeup artist. 

Winners will be announced through social media so make sure you are following us on Facebook( or Instagram (@mostlydeaddotcom)
