How To Customize Your Holiday Gift: Beauty Edition

I call this the art of giving. While I like the ease of holiday sets, nothing is more special than customizing your gifts. It’s like opening a box full of chocolates- sweet, nutty, moist. Everything is an eye candy!

It all starts with a cute makeup bag. You can find inexpensive yet chic styles at Ross or Target, like this $6.99 bag from Sonia Kashuk

It’s cold and dry skin is a common dilemma. I see you hoarded limited edition lotions and creams from Bath and Body Works. Throw in a hand cream por favor!

She’s a makeup noob? Wet n Wild eyeshadow palette won’t disappoint. Good thing, it won’t break your pocket!

‘Tis the season to shine. Highlight those luscious lips with a gloss. Nyx mega shine lip gloss is affordable with undeniable superb quality.

Spruce up the style babe. Give your bestie a pair of fabulous earrings. This dainty dangles from Forever 21 is only $7!

Mascaras have shorter shelf-life so probably it’s about time to toss hers. Milani runway lashes is a good addition to her stash.

Party with sparkles! A new glitter nail polish is a no-brainer. Wet n Wild Fergie is worth a try!

    Love this idea. I have three sisters so I usually put together four (one for each sister + my mom) little sets of different makeup for Christmas. It's really fun picking what to put in each set.
