Twelve Days of Christmas Beauty Gift Giving Ideas

 

Makeup Couture (MUC) is celebrating the holidays with the Twelve Days of Christmas, so over the next 12 days , MUC will post each day an item or an idea for gift giving or to assist in getting you all dolled up during this festive season.

1st Day – Skin Care

Today being or 1st day of Christmas, we’ve selected my favorite luxury skin care cream by La Mer either the original formula for winter, and or La Mer Face oil to fight the winter dry dull skin. This is great gift for yourself, or any other important women in your life. Protecting your face from the elements is important in preserving your youth in your facial skin.

2nd Day- Eyebrows

My true love gave to me a set of two beautifully shaped eyebrows with the help from   Chantecaille Waterproof Brow Pencil – Smudge proof so you can arrive to dinner from a winter storm looking flawless.

3rd Day- Hair Care

It’s Friday night you have a big plans tomorrow, your hair needs to look on point.  The following three items will keep your hair looking flawless… whether it be at home or in the salon, start with Olaplex treatment to keep hydrated.

4th Day- Manicure and Pedicure

The 4th day of Christmas Beauty Gift Giving lands on a Saturday, you got your brows done and hair is looking glam now lets look after your hands an feet with Amope Manicure set & Amope Pedi perfect.  This product will have your hands and feet ready for your date night.

5th Day- Eye Colour

On our 5th day of Christmas I have decided on choosing the perfect “Eye Colour” this is also the best time of year to get a good deal on eye palette gift sets from some great brands such as MAC, Bobby Brown or Nars to name a few.  But we are just focusing on two great eye colors from MAC  Jest and Naked Lunch.  Soft and simple for your everyday pretty , they work great with most skin tones and eye colours so you don’t have to worry about getting the wrong shade for the wrong person.

6th Day- Cheek Colour

We are now less than a week a way from Christmas, and we have covered skin, hair, nails, brows and eye colour, now let’s think about our winter rosy cheeks.  MUC’s pick is Chanel’s blush 370 Elegance, but  you can’t really go wrong with any of Chanel’s blushes. They are the perfect texture for all of your winter environments.

 7th and 8th Day- Pick Me Up

It’s not uncommon this time of year to feel a little rundown with our social calendars filled, the shopping and of course work and taking care of our families.  So it’s important that we get enough sleep and not over do it.  We’ve combined both the 7th and 8th beauty gift giving ideas together.

Bronzer

Feeling pale and not well? Try using  some Bronzer to give yourself a glow, this time of year.  Our preferred choice is,  Mac mineral Bronzer, Warm Soul.

Fragrance for Her

When things busy and we need to unwind, pour yourself a bath and add a luxurious fragrance, bath oil or shower gel.  A great fragrance for yourself, or your mother or great girl friend is Miss Dior, Eau De Toilet.

9th Day- Fragrance for Him

We are in the final stretch of Twelve Days of Christmas Beauty Gift Giving.  Today is the 9th day! We have given a lot of thought about our needs, and significant women in our lives needs now we should give some thought about our men.  A man should always smell good!  Our favorite cologne for a man is Tom Ford, Noir Extreme for him.  This luxury fragrance has been described as an amber-soaked, woodsy Asian fragrance with a tantalizing and delectable heart.

10th Day- Makeup Brushes

On the 10th day of Christmas my true love gave to me  a set of beautiful make-up brushes.  This is the best investment you make.  Having the correct tools is key to applying and blending makeup flawlessly.  Here are my favorite brushes to add to your makeup kit.
  • Mac 170 Synthetic Rounded Slant Brush–  This brush applies  foundation  flawlessly! This brush gives it an almost airbrushed finish without eating up your foundation
  • Mac 209 Eyeliner Brush 15 cm– This eyeliner brush applies fluid lines with ease and precision.  It is also a great tool to create a wonderful wing. 
  • Morphe brush G2- Setting your under eye has never been easier. This full and fluffy brush creates the perfect level of coverage with powder products so your makeup is undetectable but eye-catchingly beautiful.
  • Tom Ford Cream Foundation Brush– This brush makes expert makeup application completely effortless, the brush is custom designed and developed with natural hairs, which makes it slightly more expensive but well worth it.

11th  and 12th Day- Hair Appliances

Christmas is here, so whether you celebrate Christmas Eve or Christmas Day I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas!

So to end our 2017 list ouir final gift giving ideas are Hair Appliances that anyone with a head of hair will appreciate under the tree!

 Amika The Accomplice Hair Dryer:  delivers results specifically in reducing drying time, creates little noise and vibration and gives hair smooth and frizz-free results.

Hot Tools 1″  Professional Marcel Iron- This curling iron saves time as it heats up fast, create great curls and last forever. In my experience the  curling iron has great ability to hold a curl, even on the slickest of strands.  The long lifespan on this tool you will have it for years. Moreover, this curling iron “is great for any type of hair” and that “it distributes heat evenly and it doesn’t damage the hair.  Its a great tool and a great investment.
