Makeup Lover Gift Guide

I love makeup! I thinks it's so fun to experiment with different things and getting new products is like Christmas to me! Well not exactly like Christ's birthday... but you know what I mean. :) I thought I would do a little roundup of some of the awesome holiday makeup sets that are available and even a couple old favorites of mine. Any makeup lover in your life would be happy to get their hands on these things. Make sure to act quick though... a lot of the holiday kits sell out quickly! I already missed the boat on the Tarte Holiday Blush palette... darn it!

1- Anastasia Self-Made Palette: I love the wide variety of colors in this palette. There are some great neutral colors but enough splash of color for a night out. Anastasia has great eye shadows and this palette will not disappoint! Plus the $35 price point is awesome for 14 eyeshadows.

2- It Cosmetics Brush Kit- These are some of the best brushes I've ever used. They are so soft and luxurious, don't shed, and blend like a dream. What more could you ask for in brushes?? The only downfall is that they can get a little expensive. This would be a great gift for someone though and since it's in a kit the price is discounted.

3- Shade and Light Palette- Contour kits have been all the rage this year. It seems like every company is coming out with their own version but the Kat Von D palette seems to be the clear winner. It has the best price for the amount of product you get and the powders are super easy to blend. There's nothing worse then looking like you painted a contour onto your face lol.

4- Sephora Favorites: Beauty Closet- I love the Sephora favorites kits because you get to try so many fun items. I always try to find a kit that has at least two or three things that I wanted to try and it basically pays for itself. Well that's my justification :) This kit has 21 different items including a Sephora X nail polish, Hourglass Veil Primer, Smashbox CC Cream, Ole Henricksen serum, etc. Such a fun kit for any beauty lover!

5- Tarte Light of the Party Collector's Makeup Kit- This collection comes with 30 eye shadows, a blush, bronzer, highlighter, mascara, and a double-ended eyeshadow brush. Tarte has great quality eyeshadows and the colors in this palette looks perfect. They are very neutral colors with a couple deeper shimmers that would be great for a holiday party.

6- Fresh Nude Lip Trio- This cute little set is perfect for the super girly girl and even someone who doesn't wear makeup. These three lip balms keep your lips perfectly hydrated while adding just a hint of color. Plus they smell amazing! This would make a great stocking stuffer too.

7- Too Faced Melted French Kisses set- If you haven't tried Too Faced Melted Lipsticks then you need to asap. They are super pigmented and long wearing. Every time I try them on I love the colors and consistency but I am just not a lipstick wearer. I know, I'm boring lol. This is such a cute little set for anyone in your life that likes a little color on their lips. The berry melted lipstick is perfect for the holidays.

8- Formula X Happy Hour- I absolutely love the colors in this nail polish kit. The muted tones in this kit are right up my alley. I love the glitter polishes in the kit as well. They would add such a fun touch to any holiday outfit. I'm hoping someone puts this in my stocking... hint, hint Mark or Mom :) Sephora also has a great glitter nail polish remover that would be the perfect add-on to this gift. Find it here.

9- Beauty Blender and Solid Cleanser Duo- The beauty blender is such a great tool for any woman. You can use it to apply foundation, blend out concealer, apply powder, etc. It's just so easy to use and helps to soak up excess product on your face. I love that this one comes with the solid cleanser as well. I've never tried it but I've heard this little cleanser is perfect for your beauty blender or brushes.
