Best Holiday Beauty Sets for Your Money - 2013
'Tis the season, my beauties! Just about every brand you’ve ever heard of is coming out with one (or twelve) bargain sets, perfect for gifting to your best friends or to yourself! These sets are meant to be convenient and cute, as well as a huge value for what you’re getting. I’ve been shopping around since the first inkling of the holiday season began, and here is my list of my personal favorite gift sets! From makeup to skincare, these collections will be sure to please every beauty lover on your shopping list, and are such a bargain you’ll be buying one for yourself as well! Keeping all price points in mind, I tried to group similar items together for easier splurge/save navigation. Happy shopping!

Hello! I have lots of posts all about the subject, let me direct you to the tags -
Hi! Wow, that’s really awesome, thank you!! <3
Bronzer is applied along the perimeters of the face (hairline, temples, jaw) as a part of the contouring technique. Contouring shouldn’t just be done in the hollows of the cheeks, or it will look fake. Blending the contour color out into the areas of the face that would also naturally have shadow is a part of making it all look more natural. A face without some kind of color will look flat and one-dimensional! :)
*Note that the dark “stripes” are bronzer, or contour color, and the white “stripes” are luminizer, or highlight color*
Hope that helps, thanks for being such a loyal follower! It really means a lot to me <3

As for the cranberry color, it gets a little more tricky to find one, especially at the drugstore level. I love that shade on the eyes.. it’s very fall appropriate and enhances every eye color. There are a couple affordable ones to choose from, and I also recommend trying out blush on the eyes. Some blushes look really gorgeous on the eyes, because many have pretty golden shimmer to them.
L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow “Glistening Garnet” - $5
NYX Eyeshadow “Rust” - $5
Also try ELF Baked Eyeshadow “Burnt Plum” and Wet n Wild Color Icon Blush in “Berry Shimmer”.
Hope that helps! :)
