Sorry I pushed Makeup Monday to Tuesday. Trucco is Italian for makeup. I was ill and by the time I was home after forcing myself to work a full day, all I could do was lay on the couch and whine for my doting fiance to bring me another sparkling water.
So, ya get Trucco Tuesday, and you’ll like it, see? That was supposed to be a mobster voice, continuing with the Italian theme. Wow, really, Kaitlin? You’re going to put that in the blog? Did I mention I’m trippin’ on cold medication?
Anyway, I’m not saying I have good taste, but I have exquisite taste. Here are some awesome things I think would make EXCELLENT gifts for any friends or special people in your life that love makeup. Or could use a makeover. I’m not here to judge.
The Holidays in the makeup world (or maybe in my head) are all about gift sets. Here are some I love.
1) Things involving nails
Sephora by OPI Tinsel Town Collectors Set
Perfect for people like me who adore nail polish in every color.
Butter London Sparkle Sparkle Holiday Lacquer Collection
2) Things involving eyes
Stila Seeing Stars Eyeliner Set
Perfect for the holidays! This is a great value for a great product.
Urban Decay Ocho Loco Eyeliner Set
Perfect for the dramatic person in your life.
Cinderella Collection by Sephora
Perfect for the Disney Lover in your life, or for a preteen. I say that only because I really was not impressed with the formulation of these shadows. But the packaging drew me in like a FOOL.
Laura Mercier Artist’s Palette
This is perfect for the demure professional in your life.
MUFE Aqua Eyes Set
Another great eyeliner set. I don’t know how you’ll choose.
Urban Decay’s Smoked Eyeliner Set
Seriously, I don’t know how you’ll choose. Better shower your lady love in all the eyeliner she could ever want.
3) Things involving smells
Clinique Complete Happiness Coffret
A delightful selection of Clinique’s scents! Perfect for the lady who loves Clinique/ collections of small things.
Sephora Fragrance Sampler
Perfect for if you want to give the gift of scent, but don’t know what you’re lady love will lady like. Or if she is indecisive. Or if she likes a lot of different smells. Again, I’m not here to judge.
4) Things involving lips
NARS Kiss Coffret
Perfect for the classy lady who likes having shiny lips.
Smashbox Studio Pop Set
Delightful for the daring woman who also likes shiny lips.
OCC Pro’s Picks Set
I didn’t know this existed and I want it so, so, so, so, so bad. Perfect for your artisty lady friends who love mixing their own colors and also love excellent quality. Not for Makeup N00bz.
Sugar Kisses Mini Trio
Great for the woman who likes cute things and moisturized lips.
Sephora Give me Some Lip Set
Again, perfect if you are completely overwhelmed by this post and hate makeup now more than ever.
Giver her a little of everything. And kiss her no matter what’s on her lips.
And that’s that.
Ladies, happy shopping, and show your man this post. Men… you’re welcome.
