If you're not brave enough to sport a Dia de los Muertos skull face this Halloween, makeup artist Erica Davidson has one more makeup tutorial up her sleeve for all the Mad Men and "Zou Bisou Bisou" fans. "I wanted to do a face that would work for a wide range of costumes," she explains. "From a period drama babe to the classic pin-up girl, this look can be used over and over again."
