Welcome to Beauty Diary: seven days of getting glam with an industry insider. From publicists to professional makeup artists, this a week in the life of someone who lives and breathes beauty.

In honor of Halloween, we asked pro face painter Melissa Munn to document a week in her life during "high season." Melissa's work began at her daughter's fifth birthday party, and ranges from painting pre-school princesses to adorning model bodies for fashion week. The high concentration of costume parties this time of year means long days filled with lots of Liquid Bling for the girls and Mike Tyson requests from adult men.
