Trick or Treat

The icon of this season? You know it, PUMPKIN!  So handy in so many ways and even for beauty! Trick: This season try a lip gloss in a soft orange hue like the celeb favorite from Girlactik in Orange Twist, or Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12 hour blush in Tipsy a coral type color that is sure to flatter any skin tone. (not to brag but this blush was Allure's Best Blush of 2011) 

Pumpkin is rich in Vitamin A, C, beta-carotene, and Zinc so it is soothing and moisturizing. It's especially wonderful for sensitive skin or environmentally sensitized skin, but is beneficial for all skin types. 
Prep your skin before the makeup for best results with none other than a DIY pumpkin mask:

Pumpkin Pie Face Mask
              2 teaspoons cooked or canned pumpkin puree 
one-half teaspoon honey
one-quarter teaspoon milk (or soymilk) (alpha hydroxyl acid, enzymes digest dead skin cells)
or for Oily Skin add one-quarter teaspoon apple cider or cranberry juice

Treat: Use the rest for a pie!
