You may not know his name but it's almost certain you've seen his work. He received seven Academy Awards including the inaugural statuette for Best Makeup and Hairstyling for his work in An American Werewolf in London. This honor was repeated with Harry and the Hendersons, Ed Wood, The Nutty Professor, Men in Black, How The Grinch Stole Christmas and The Wolfman. Remember the wolf creature in which Michael Jackson transforms in Thriller? He did that too! No wonder he's got his own star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame!

On M.A.C's website when you click on the makeup drawing of your choice you will get all the information needed to recreate it. The great thing about these is that they are just makeup, no prosthetics. With a little practice the illusion can be quite spectacular...
Here's the tutorial where Rick Baker shows how to achieve the makeup shown above...
Here, the collection created specifically to recreate these looks.
You can view the entire collection on M.A.C website, here.
Sadly I don't have anything planned for Halloween but these palettes are both beautiful
