Makeup has a lot of substance to it, both in terms of use and how many complementary products it has to go along with it. Makeup lovers the world over are up to date on all the new trends and looks the icons love, and thus buying for them for Christmas can get a little pricey and a little confusing! Here’s some ideas that will often blow the competition out of the water because of their simplicity and usefulness.

Something to Make Foundation Last Longer…

Squeezing out the last drop of foundation isn’t typically possible because of the packaging the formula comes in, and that means we get frustrated every time it comes to throwing a bottle away. But wait! Before you let the person you’re buying for chuck their bottle in the bin, tap your nose and tell them to hang on for it for a bit longer.

You can get makeup spatulas to scrape out the bottom of a bottle, and scoop out the gloop of foundation at the bottom which we know we should be able to use! This way, we can get a couple more days of use at least, and finally the £30 price tag makes sense.

Easier Ways to Keep Brushes Clean!

Everyone hates having to dunk their brushes in the solution, despite how productive it makes us feel, as it takes our much loved tool kit out of commission for a good while and they need to dry off. However, on the other hand, some people rarely remember to do it at all!

If you’re at a loss at what to get someone because everyone else has already bought the experimental palettes they’ve been wanting for a while, and another person has got them a dress to pair their new look with, turn to the technical. Often, the latter option outweighs the former, so getting someone a Make Up Brush Cleaner they can easily apply and acts as physical reminder to clean off the brushes won’t go unappreciated!

Blotting Materials That Keep Makeup Intact

Everyone who uses makeup knows this struggle: you want to get rid of the excess oils that leak out and ruin a look you’ve spent an hour plus perfecting, but blotting them away smudges everything up anyway! Well, here’s the trick for them!

You can get sponges that are made of the same stuff as beauty blenders, which is immediately a good sign. Blending everything in instead of isolating a patch and wiping everything away is what’s needed here after all. Snap up a couple packets of these and wrap them up as a good stocking filler, or pack them in with the rest of the present you’re planning to buy for your favorite person.

Christmas can be just as pleasurable as ever without any torn hairs! Makeup is confusing and so many products exist that do the same things, so think a little out of the box this year. Your effort always goes rewarded with ventures like these!

Guys, January is almost over already and you know what that means…just eleven months until Christmas!  I’m kidding, but actually now is the time when you can start thinking a little more seriously about summer vacation. You probably already have some ideas in mind but now is the time to put that plan into action. I’m sure you’ll agree that half of the fun of going on holiday is getting it all sorted out right? Yeah, I didn’t think so but not to worry because I’m going to look at a few of the ways you can eliminate the stress and avoid the craziness.

Saving Up Is Hard To Do

We all find we have this problem at one point or another. We want to go on holiday and we want it to be a stunning, luxury vacation. But, alas it seems there’s not enough money in the bank to pay for it. What do you do? Take out a loan, yell plastic is fantastic and buy everything on the credit card or beg your folks for some cash? None of the former. Instead, you should think about saving earlier and putting your money in a high interest account. You should aim to save for your holiday about a year before you go. If you’re booking a popular vacation, you can still get it sorted early with a little deposit. So, there’s no need to panic about losing your spot. Plus, if you save using a high-interest account, you can get a bank to pay for some of your holiday. Sure it will probably only be a couple hundred, but it’s still worth it!

Get Permission Fast

Don’t leave getting permission to travel until the last minute. It might say online that you can register 72 hours before you fly but that doesn’t take into account a problem or a delay. The last thing you want is to get stuck at customs instead of enjoying the hot summer sun of your tropical vacation. Particularly, if that delay then leads to something as unpleasant as a strip search. It can happen! So, it’s easier and best to arrange for a permit from the Official ESTA site for the country you’re traveling to well in advance.

When you’re looking for a little luxury and you don’t have the income of a Kardashian, it can be tempting to take a shortcut. You might see a vacation advertised that looks like everything you wanted at a budget price. Be careful because the words ‘too good to be true’ should be planted firmly in your mind. Remember, a budget holiday will always have issues. It just depends on whether you can live with them or if they’ll ruin your vacation.

Throw Caution To The Wind

Of course, you can forget this idea completely and head on vacation with no plan at all. This is easier if you are flying solo. Turn up at the airport and head on the next available departure. Though please bare in mind, you can only do this if you’re traveling to a region sport luggage, scams, budget, travel, with open travel from your location. For instance, traveling anywhere within the EU from an EU country.

Call me crazy, but I actually love packing to go away- if I give myself enough time to prepare. If I’m in a rush, forget about it and I turn into a raging loon, but if I have the time to sit and do it, packing can actually be quite a zen experience. I love organizing everything I need into perfect sized little bag and checking off things on my list of what needs to be packed. A lot of people travel around the holidays, so it’s the perfect time to spoil the traveler in your life.

I get freaked out in airports, at least until I get through security, so anything I can bring with me to make my travels more convenient + comfortable will definitely be on my list.  To keep my eye on my essentials, I got an adorable passport holder + I always attach something bright like a ribbon or cute luggage tag. To keep my little bits + pieces together, I have quite a collection of cosmetic bags.

One of them hops from purse to purse every day, and another is already ready to go with my toothbrush, hair brush etc. Does anyone else make a checklist while they’re packing their overnight kits? Well, this emergency kit makes it easy, but if you want to stuff your own bag, Sephora has an amazing selection of travel-sized products like these almond delights.

No surprise from me here, but I think every traveler needs a solid backpack to be hands-free when needed. This one from Sole Society is a nice, neutral color and a decent size, but I usually go for something a little bigger to fit my laptop or tablet. The first time my sister and I flew overseas, we were tickled to get our little bags on the flight with mini t00thpaste and an eye-mask, but the nylon mask was so not comfy- or as cute as this one from Wildfox. Lastly, I recommend a travel charger for everyone! I used to always stick one in my purse for a day out, and I need to remember to charge it so I never run out of battery for optimum picture-taking ability.

What are your travel essentials- which of these would you like for a gift?
