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!

I’ve been pretty equally split this year buying Christmas presents from department stores and small businesses (mostly Etsy), and honestly I’m the most excited about the small shopping I’ve done. Not only because the gifts are personalized and unique, but also I’m proud to support small and local businesses, and wanted to highlight a few women I know personally IRL who have hustles and heart. Consider shopping with them this holiday season because you’ll be supporting a woman making moves for herself, and often her family.

Olivia: Crimson Treasures

My business Crimson Treasures is just my idea of interesting handmade jewelry that I myself would wear. I like quirky and out of the box things so I try to make my pieces very unique. My pieces also all include crystals that have unique healing properties which adds to the quirkiness. Crystals have always been a big part of my life and I love to use them in every piece that I make.

The only recommendation that I have for other women owned businesses is just to do what you feel is right. Make and produce things that you love and never change for anyone. You created your business for a reason and you need to stick to it. Also, have fun!

My favorite product is this rainbow titanium aura quartz necklace. I love rainbows and these crystals are just amazing with their colors. 


Julie: Mary Kay

I started my Mary Kay business 4 years ago. I used Mary Kay makeup prior and liked the quality of the products. It wasn’t until I became a consultant that I started using the Timewise Miracle Set skincare line.

My favorite pamper my skincare gift bundle is the Mix & Mask, it is a Hot new multimasking trend!

You use different Mary Kay masks to target different areas of your face and address specific skin needs all at once. 

The bundle includes:

  • Clear Proof Deep-Cleansing Charcoal Mask: This triple-action charcoal mask deeply cleanses skin and helps clear the way to beautiful, clearer-looking skin.
  • Timewise Moisture Renewing Gel Mask: Instantly hydrates, locks in moisture, de-stresses, purifies, nourishes, calms, firms, smooths, softens and minimizes pores.

If you’d like to purchase from Julie, please contact her via her Facebook!

This Rosé all day gift set is a chic and affordable holiday treat! Featuring best-selling luxe studs and the perfect pouch to pair it with.

 


After Christmas, I’ll highlight where and what I got from small businesses, but I don’t want to accidentally give away any surprises. What’s your favorite way to shop small?

Don’t forget you can also shop small from ME on my Etsy & Zazzle shops!
