What:Naked Palettes

Who: Nude eyeshadow lovers,All

If you follow me on social media (@katscoverup), then you know that I have been raving about these palettes.  I highly recommend the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette (rose-gold shades), the Naked Ultimates Palette (matte shades) and the Naked Smokey Palette (shades for a smokey eye).  These are great for those who like to stick with neutral shades but don’t want the same boring look every day.  There are so many different combinations, so you don’t have to repeat the same look

Beauty lovers rave about this palette.  The shades are perfect for colder seasons and are extremely pigmented.  This is great for those who love to experiment with darker eye looks.

Burt’s bees are my go-to for everything.  It’s by far my favorite lip balm brand.  Treat the beauty lover on your list to the holiday set which contains must have products.

Real Techniques’ brushes are some of the best brushes around for an affordable price.  These have a super cute print that any beauty lover would be excited to display.  The kit contains the buffing brush, contour brush, stippling brush, deluxe crease brush and the base shadow brush, which are all the basic brushes needed to get started.

What:Kat Von D MetalMatte Eyeshadow Palette Limited Edition 2016

The new MetalMatte Eyeshadow Palette was recommended to me by a Sephora employee.  It has been highly raved about  and contains a wide range of colors.  There are a few neutrals, but this palette is more for someone who loves to experiment with color!  This has a great combination of matte and glittery shimmer shades.  This palette will give the beauty lover in your life plenty of looks to experiment with.

Everyone has that friend who is always on the go and never sits down.  This kit is great for those who are on the go.  It contains a gorgeous variety of eyeshadows, a blush, bronzer, and highlight as well as  mascara, eye liner and a lip color.
