It’s Brooklyn Dolls’ favorite time of year. We just had an awesome holiday party (see above), despite some technical difficulty and a brigade of drunk Santas greeting our guests upon arrival. The desserts, dance party and photos with (our own) Santa made for a pretty memorable evening. And now we get to share with you our top 3 holiday gift picks – in no particular order. Hope you have your notepads handy!
Make Up For Ever: Perfect for a friend (um, or yourself)
If you have a friend you really like (most of us have atleast one or two), then Make Up For Ever’s Wild and Chic Best of Make Up For Ever Kit ($55) is the perfect gift. Fans of the blog know we are huge MUFE fans to begin with, and this set has a little piece of some the brand’s best products, including HD Microfinish Powder (which sets foundation while also giving you a really subtle glow), black Aqua Eyes liner (one of J’s favorites), and cult favorite MUFE HD Microperfecting Primer. Throw in a universally flattering pink lip gloss, black mascara, and taupe cream shadow, and you got yourself a pretty great gift set. In fact, you might as well just keep it for yourself.
Smashbox: Perfect for you!
Now that we’ve covered what to get your female relatives and your friend(s), here’s what you need to buy yourself! We’re pretty much obsessed with Smashbox’s Masters Class 9 Custom Color Set. Yes, the name is a mouthful, but for good reason. In this set (priced at $60, valued at $175) you have eye shadow trio, cream eye liner, two lip glosses, a lip pencil, waterproof eye liner pencil, blush/bronzer compact. Anyone who has worn (and loves) Smashbox knows these are some precious gems. The set comes in light, medium and dark–making this set perfect for every skin tone, so there’s no excuse not to buy. And any pieces of the set you don’t like could be turned into the “little extra gift” (aka stocking stuffer) for a friend.
