Turn Heads, Not Stomachs This Halloween

The first rule of Halloween dressing is to leave the ghouls to the guys – while maintaining the theme, you still want to look at least semi ‘on fleek’. Apart from anything, one never knows where the afterparty will be… I once went to a Halloween party dressed up (or rather, dressed down) as a ‘Smoking Pregnant Chav’ – which was amusing until the private member’s club hosting the post-party, refused to grant me entry on their no ‘riff raff’ policy #fail.

The first rule of make up application is, if you are going for a caked on (green or white or orange) base, make sure your canvas is as smooth and even as it can be, otherwise your make up will soon look rather ghastly and won’t last the party, let alone the after-after party.

So, if you want something to give your skin a professional level of exfoliation, look no further than Peter Thomas Roth’s {Pumpkin Mask} with it’s triple-tier smoothing action. Pumpkin enzymes dissolve pore-clogging surface debris which can compromise skin’s light-reflective capabilities, AHAs melt the ‘glue’ that binds the uppermost layer of cells to skin’s surface and aluminium oxide crystals physically polish dulled skin to perfection.

Unlike other exfoliators, Pumpkin Enzyme Mask has become so cult because of its 3-in-1 action and is formulated with the same aluminium crystals used in professional microdermabrasion treatments. Just apply, gently massage in a circular motion to polish with the aluminium crystals, then lie back and enjoy the ultimate spa experience in the comfort of your own home” Peter Thomas Roth, founder.

Result? Skin as smooth as glass, make up as airbrushed as a glossy magazine and the party staying-power of Kate Moss. Plus, it smells like cinnamon-infused pumpkin pie… perfect to get you in the mooOOOood 🙂
