Last year's beauty palette post was such a hit and really, who doesn't love a great palette?!
Makeup Palette Math
Simple Beauty Math: 1 base colour (lid) + 1 contour colour (crease) + 1 liner (lashline) = Gorgeous!
Drama Beauty Math: 1 base colour (lid) + 1 contour colour (crease) + 1 liner (lashline) + 1 Highlight (tearduct and brow bone) = STUNNING!
TIP: Eyeliner applied heavily onto the inner rim will add a quick smoky effect. Try grey, brown, plum or basic black.
Here are the must-have beauty items for Holiday 2011, whether a selfish Scroogette who wants them all for yourself or for gift-giving these are my pretty picks:
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks are a staple in my makeup kit. This is a great new addition for holiday as well as fab for highlighting a gorgeous bridal makeup.
Urban Decay Nail Polish Set $28.00 USD by Urban Decay at Sephora If you have girl sextuplets you can divide these into their stockings. I love mini bottles of polish. I actually buy these for my nail kit when I can since I never use up a full bottle of polish.
Stila Holiday Dream in Full Color Palette ($366 value) $39.00 USD by Stila at Beauty.com Always a fan of the Stila palettes, the shadows are easy to blend and this palette will give you endless possibilites.
