Winter Wear: Outfit 1

Winter Wear: Black + Plum + Gold.

I’ve been wearing a lot of black-on-black lately. I don’t know why, as I’m usually pretty colorful, but perhaps it’s the change in seasons that has me constantly turning to my favorite black skinnies (The AG Stilt Skinny, $168.00). I also can’t stop wearing a new lipstick (MAC’s Rebel, $16.00 ) that I heard about from Cupcakes & Cashmere and bought instantly. It would also be great if we could put these Phillip Lim boots ($675.00) at the very top of my holiday wish list. The rest of it: Helmut Lang Cross Front Top ($160.00), ALDO Kristin Earrings ($8.00).

Pretty Little Gifts

Holiday Gift Ideas: BareMinerals Buffing Beauties Brush Set + The Magic Act Palette.

Gift Giving Season is upon us and over the next few weeks I’m going to be featuring some of my favorite products from Bare Minerals. I’ve been a long-time fan of their products (I spent a year working at their boutique in Rosedale, Minnesota) and have never been disappointed when giving or receiving one of their products as a gift. Over the past few weeks I’ve gotten to play with, test out, and scrutinize all of the new kits and products that they are unveiling for the holidays and I’m excited to share them with you! Today’s highlighted products are the Buffing Beauties Brush Set ($49.00) and a tiny compact full of fun colors called The Magic Act ($39.00), both of which make great gifts for your sisters, best friend or even your mom.

Holiday Gift Ideas: BareMinerals Buffing Beauties Brush Set + The Magic Act Palette.

Nothing gets me super excited the way a fresh set of brushes does. The Buffing Beauties Set retails for $49.00 and comes with 5 beautiful brushes + a brush roll case.  I have definitely spent well over $30.00 on a single brush, so it goes without saying that this is a tremendous value. The price point is perfect for your sister, best friend, or mom, and with proper care the brushes will last them years. I love the flat, tightly-packed bristles, which help create a soft, flawless finish and I love the interior of the brush roll (black and white stripes)! Get it here.

Another adorable product that Bare Minerals has available for holiday is The Magic Act. This little compact retails for $39.00. The kit is tiny, so it really does seem like magic when you open it up to  reveal 4 shades for cheeks and 6 shades for eyes! The palette contains colors that will look great on anyone—making it a perfect gift. I love the idea of gifting this to a woman on-the-go who travels frequently and needs to pack lightly! I have already put a pretty good dent in “The Natural High” the pinkest of the blushes (which looks very similar to NARS cult-favorite blush, Orgasm) and also “A-Ha” the sparkly brown eyeshadow.
