Holiday Beauty Sets for the Make Up Lovers on Your List
I have to honestly say that I am not really a make up person. For me make up is putting on some tinted lip gloss. I know it’s crazy for some but that’s just me. My daughter though is a little beauty queen and she loves all thing make up. Thankfully I have some great friends from college to help her learn all she’ll need to learn once she’s old enough to start wearing make up daily. I received two beauty sets for inclusion in my holiday gift guide. Both are great gift ideas for make up lovers.
When you’re shopping for different people it’s great to know what they like. I’m not a big beauty person but I recently connected back with one of my auxiliary line sisters from college and she recently left her day job to follow her passion for hair and make up. She’s an official MUA so I knew these sets would be perfect gifts for her. If you have anyone on your list that loves make up and making themselves and others look beautiful then these are the route to go. According to my line sister the Real Techniques are her favorites. She was so excited about them she couldn’t wait to use them for her next event. Here’s some for information about both sets and my line sister’s thoughts on why she would recommend both sets of brushes.
The EcoTools Mini Essentials Set is perfect for travel. They’re compact and great for when you want something on the go. The set comes packaged in cute holiday packing making it a perfect stocking stuffer. As a leader in eco-conscious beauty care products, EcoTools strives to help women look and live beautifully. All EcoTools products are made with cruelty-free, innovative earth-conscious materials. The set includes a powder brush, eye shading brush and angled liner brush. The EcoTools set features a rich two tone chocolate two-tone bristles and a deep color bamboo handle. The full powder brush can be used to apply pressed or mineral powder and can also be used to apply blush. The eye shading brush and the angled liner brush are all you need to create the prefect eye look. My line sister said she loved these brushes because they were not only compact but they are all you need to create a show stopping look. She love that the brushes all have great strong bristles than do not fall out easily, don’t pick up a lot of make up and and they are easy to clean.
You can purchase the EcoTools Mini Essentials Set from www.ecotools.com the MSRP: $5.99.
The Real Techniques Nic’s Picks Exclusive Holiday Set really made here excited. She was super excited about these brushes and she was talking about them for at least an hour after I gave them to her. These brushes were actually on her shopping list so she was over the moon to get the set and not have to purchase them on her own. She said she liked these brushes because they are professional brushes as an affordable price. She already owned two of Real Techniques individual brushes and she loves how they apply make up to the skin. She even said they make her work look better. She had nothing but praise for this brush set and she highly recommends it for any beauty lovers on your shopping list.
