It is that time of year again when gift-giving begins. At times it can be overwhelming to think of something to buy for all of the people on your list. Great gifts for gal pals, family members and female co-workers alike are makeup palettes. There are lip palettes, eye shadow palettes, blush palettes and palettes that have a mix of items.
It is a great way to spice up the makeup routine and try some new colors and looks. Palettes usually include colors you wouldn’t normally try or buy, this allows people to experiment without being totally committed. Here are some holiday palettes that we love!
The Edward Bess Baby Pink Lip Palette
This is perfect for any friend that you know of that has more lipstick tubes than pairs of shoes. Baby pinks look great on a variety of skin tones and this palette allows for a little mix n’ match! It is great that it is small enough to carry around in a purse or bag. It includes a brush and a mirror for on-the-go applications.
The Bobbi Brown Bellini Lips and Eye Palette
As if the name Bellini isn’t appetizing enough, this palette features the most beautiful lip and eye shades. We love Bobbi Brown because they make good quality products. Any opportunity to try a few shades at once is one that we don’t want to miss out on!
The Too Faced Natural Face Natural Radiance Palette
Face palettes are such a blessing. We love it when our bronzers, blushes and highlighters are all in one place! Palettes like this usually choose colors that will flatter a variety of skin tones so that they can cater to as many people as possible. Do you have friends going on vacation? This is compact and perfect to take travelling!
The Lorac Eye Candy Full Face Collection
This is an adorable holiday gift to give. The box resembles a box of chocolates and the mini palettes inside look like chocolate bars! Although there may be a half second of disappointment when the person realizes that the gift is not edible, it will be replaced with pure joy when they see the range of colors in this palette. As it says, it is a full face palette and includes colors for the eyes, face and lips – and it is completely adorable!
The Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
We couldn’t write a blog about great makeup palettes without including either the Naked or Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay. These palettes are best-sellers and have rave reviews all over the web. They feature both matte and shimmer colors that can make a plethora of beautiful eye shadow looks that can range from neutral to dramatic.
The Sephora Collection Color Daze Blockbuster
This gift is for your friends that are beauty junkies. Packed neatly in a black and white striped box, it unfolds a multitude of amazing colors that any beauty-obsessed friend would love to experiment with. This palette features 64 waterproof eye shadows, cream eyeliner, eye and lip top coats, 48 lip glosses, 3 blushes, 6 multi-purpose shades for eyes, cheeks and lips – plus 3 luminizers and 3 makeup brushes. Can you say speechless?
