Make up gift guide!

December 12, 2017

As you all know (unless you are new to me and the blog, then you don't know) I LOVE MAKEUP. I think makeup is the perfect gift for anyone and everyone, only excluding the football man in your life, and even then it might still be a possibility! You can give me makeup year round and I would be elated. Today I'm going to go through a makeup guide that will please everyone from the makeup newbie to the makeup guru in your life. ENJOY

 

For the Newbie:

 

A Morphe Brush set:

 

Morphe brushes are the ultimate makeup brushes, they're affordable, versatile (I'm currently using a blending brush as a highlighter brush) and have such a luxurious feel. These are my go to brushes and a cult favorite! The best part is that Morphe sells the most amazing brush sets, here are some of my favorites: 

 

This is the first Morphe set i got a few years ago and some if the brushes are still my everyday go-to's, and i mean THE PRICE!! 

 

 

Morphe Eye Shadows:

 

These eyeshadows are LIFE. If your girl needs shimmer, its here, if she needs matte its here, if she wants both, ITS HERE! This is the palette to end all palettes believe me.

 

Sephora Collection Contour Palette:

 

Amazing quality and versatile for most skin tones, and so much more affordable than the name brands!  

 

Setting Spray:  

 

If its not obvious, every girl needs a good setting spray so that their slay can last all day. 

 

 

For The Girl That Has Almost Everything: 

 

Sephora Liquid Lipsticks: 

These are the most underrated matte liquid lipsticks on the market, i discovered them by accident and now own more than i like to admit. So many colors, soft finish, and long lasting, you really cant go wrong. 

 

 

Huda Beauty Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette:

 

This baby is my GO TO. Huda is a beauty GODDESS, and this palette was nearly impossible to grasp when it first launched but its in stock so jump on it before it vanishes. 

 

 Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit: 

 

I use this on the daily, it has amazing blendable shades and is truly worth all the hype and the price! 

 

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette: 

 

This baby is hard to come by, I don't have it yet, and I yearn for it daily. Dramatic? - maybe - but true. Thank me later. 

 

 Beauty Blender: 

 

She has all the knock offs, get her the real deal. 

 

 

 

For The GURU: 

 

FENTY BEAUTY: 

 

I have nothing to add, like you really cant go wrong, everyone wants to try these babies. Believe me, you cant go wrong. 

 

 

 

 

Glam Glow Face Masks:

 

These masks are a cult fave and have proven their worthiness, every glam queen needs to have a smooth canvas to apply their makeup and this is the perfect way to achieve that. This pack of sample size masks is the best opportunity to try out all of these favorites 

 

Kat Von D Lolita Obsession Collector's Edition: 

 

Lolita is the most incredible lip color on the market, it lasts all day and when it does fade, it fades naturally and smoothly. This kit has both Lolita colors, lip liners, cream lipstick and Lolita colored blush. This baby is my DREAM! 

 

 

 

The Jaclyn Hill X Morphe Palette:

 

Jaclyn Hill is the Beauty Guru of Beauty Gurus, this palette is a must have if you love or hate her, creamy shadows in a wide array of colors.

 

Desi & Katy X Dose of Colors:

 

This line is INCREDIBLE, Desi and Katy did an incredible job curating this amazing collection of makeup, it is a limited collection, and rapidly went out of stock a few times and when its gone, its gone. Desi and Katy have a large following and are my personal favorite beauty gurus, your girl is sure to love these. 

 

 

Makeup Ring Light: 

 

If the beauty guru in your life wants to start their own makeup channel, help them get started with a ring light, this baby will glam up any video they film.
