 Christmas, Christmas time is here. Time for Ghosts and time for fear…

 Once upon a time a small child wrote a letter to Santa. This child asked Santa to deliver the toys of their dreams. Unfortunately, the child sent the letter by the postal service. Several weeks later, the letter landed on the desk, not of SANTA Claus, aka St. Nick, but of his nemesis, SATAN.

 Upon receiving many letters from the post office addressed to him, asking for things, The ruler of the underworld decided this was a good opportunity to terrify small children. He gathered his imps, created his own special workshop and started producing toys.

 Show us one of the toys those small children received.

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.
