Here are my favorite holiday palettes this year:
Stila Snow Angel Color Palette ($39)-
This snowflake-shaped set includes 12 cheek colors, 18 eyeshadow colors, a mini Stay All Day waterproof mascara, and a look-book with tips on how to apply the various shades. This palette is for the makeup-lover because there's SO much to choose from. This is also great for someone who might be more conservative with makeup (mother-in-law?) because the shades are all extremely wearable.
|Real life rundown: the shades are highly pigmented so this little palette will go a long way.|
NYX cosmetics Wicked Dreams palette ($15)-
This palette makes the list because everybody has that friend that wears enviable eye makeup when they go out. This girl will pass out from joy if you gift her this for the holidays. It's for your bestie or for your sister, and it's at such an affordable price that you can't lose. There are 24 shades that will cover all this girl's needs, from neutral day shades to jewel tones for nighttime.
|Real life rundown: there's no occasion that this can't get you ready for!|
Nordstrom Fall Essentials beauty palette ($29.50)-
Did you know that Nordstrom came out with their own beauty line? It just hit stores and I have to say they did a really good job at creating the product at a great price. They have a ton of palettes out right now (as well as single shade colors) but this palette goes on the list, possibly for a co-worker's Secret Santa gift, because it's perfect to keep in your desk at work. It contains 9 eyeshadows, 2 eyeliner pencils, 8 lip glosses, 8 blushes, and 4 bronzer shades.
