Because I work for the most fabulous makeup company ever, as the holidays approach the hints and outright requests for makeup start rolling in thick and fast from my friends and relations. I love to put together fun little “collections” for them, and I thought these might spark some fun gift ideas:
Best gift under $50: Chocoholicks, hands down. The adorable packaging, the yummy scent and taste: it’s like giving chocolates and makeup at the same time!
Best gift around $10: Chocoholicks wins again: Buy the set and break them up into individuals. Stuff them in a stocking (or two); or pair them with a chocolate truffle for a great Secret Santa treat!
If that doesn’t cover everyone, let’s look at the lovelies in our lives that we want to delight:
Is she a Twilight Temptress? Give her the look with Pinot Noir Liquid Eyeliner, Rose Gold 24-Karat Gold Dust and Rasberry PureGloss Lip Gloss. Pair them with a little moonstone ring, and you’ve got her ticket!
Do you have a friend you’re dying to make over? The one who is so caught up in more mindful pursuits, she pays no attention to her gorgeous appearance? She may be no fuss, but just a touch here and there…. A flick of Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara, a whisper of In Touch Cream Blush and a kiss of PureGloss Lip Gloss in Just Gloss or In The Pink, and she’s done. Present them with a beautiful blank notebook, and she’ll know you cherish her inner world too.
What to get the outdoorsy gal? She skis or snowboards, she hikes, she bikes, she plays in the garden. Help her protect her skin so she can focus on the activities she loves! Pair Powder-Me SPF Dry Sunscreen, Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer and LipDrink Lip Balm together with a big, broad-brimmed hat (try a brimmed beanie if she’s a snow bunny).
Is the sugarplum fairy in your life still playing dress-up? Give her the gift of shimmer with an assortment of Eye Glosses or the 24-Karat Gold Mine Kit. Put your baking skills to work and pair her pretty gift with this sweet treat.
These are just a few ideas to get you started. Is there someone on your list that has you stumped? Leave a comment below and we’ll do our best to help!
