Dear Kinworm - I think makeup enhances your personality. It is just not about Halloween but any function or celebration. Try applying some mascara or eyeliner and lipstick. You will fall in love with yourself.

I'll probably be dressing like a witch for Halloween. I don't normally do make-up but I think witches are much more frightening with green faces :)
