Makeup Maven Gift Guide

I have to admit that when holiday shopping, I am guilty of buying one item for a loved one and one (or two) for myself. It’s so hard to resist when there are so many good buys. These makeup picks are sure to warm the heart of even the most ardent makeup lover and are more than worth picking up an extra one (or more) for yourself!

1. IT Cosmetics’ IT Girl Eye and Cheek Palette ($48) – This limited edition palette includes 10 eyeshadows, an exclusive shade of IT Cosmetics’ popular Bye Bye Pores blush and Superhero Eye Foundation to ensure eyeshadow goes on smoothly and stays true to its color without creasing.

2. jane iredale Dream Luminizer Trio ($45) – Three beautiful pearlescent powders (white/pearl, pink and gold) that can be used all over your face as an illuminator or as a highlighter on eyes, cheeks and lips.

3. Mehron Celebré Pro-HD Contour/Highlight Palette ($80) – With 12 different buildable pressed powder shades any look is at the tip of your fingers. The powders are oil and fragrance-free and made with antioxidants of pomegranate and vitamin E combined with aloe vera to help soothe the skin.

4. Merle Norman 24K Gold Priming Foundation Primer ($50) – The 24-karat Gold Flakes in this primer help energize skin leaving it glowing, smooth, firm and ready for your favorite makeup. My makeup goes on perfectly every single time I use this serum-like primer.

5. NARS Powermatte Lip Pack – Bold Set ($110) – This limited edition set includes four of NARS long-wearing, lightweight highly-pigmented Powermatte lip pigements in holiday party ready shades (Starwoman, Get Up Stand Up, Warm Leatherette and Light My Fire).

6. Man Ray x NARS Double Take Overexposed Glow Highlighter ($42) –  This versatile highlighter can be used wet or dry, can applied sparingly for a hint of dewiness or more liberally for full on glam. Plus, the Man Ray-inspired packaging and beautifully embossed highlighter are visually stunning.

7. Stila Big Shots Stay All Day Liquid Liner & HUGE Mascara Duo ($25) – This set includes a full-size Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Intense Black and a full-size HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara. Separately these two products retail for $45!
