Happy almost turkey day! I’m currently loving a gorgeous, soft smoky eye paired with nude lips and you don’t have to break the bank to get it. I’m rounding up the best beauty buys for your Thanksgiving weekend—all under $25!
SEPHORA COLLECTION VIP Pass Eyeshadow Palette, $10: Pocket-sized palette contains 8 eye shadow shades that can give you a variety of nude to smoky looks. Palettes are especially great for traveling because it won’t take up much room and you don’t have to worry about losing or breaking single shadows. For just $10 this is such a steal!
STILA Smudge Pot, $20: Stila Smudge Pots are still gel eye liner favorites of mine—they apply silky smooth and last throughout the day. I prefer the intense black shade, which I can lightly smudge for a smoky look.
NAILS INC. Nail Polish in The Thames, $9.50: Simple and classic yet totally unique, The Thames is a pretty grey shade that is absolutely perfect for fall and winter. I’ve been obsessed with greys this season so this nail polish will fit into my collection nicely.
TARTE Powder Couple Amazonian Clay Blush & Bronzer Duo, $20: Multi-taskers are perfect for busy weekends and most especially if you’re traveling. I love products with a dual purpose, such as this blush and bronzer duo.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Brow Powder Duo, $23: You cannot forget about the brows and using a quality brow product is a must. I prefer brow powders and this one is a must, you get two shades in one so you can easily create a natural, and smudgeproof, brow.
BAREMINERALS Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Take Charge, $18: For me, a pretty nude pout completes a smoky eye look and this lip color is absolutely perfect. I love the gold limited edition component! Can’t find this limited edition lipstick? Try the regular Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in the shade Be Free.
SMASHBOX Try It Kit: Kits with sample sizes not only make great gifts but they’re fantastic for letting you try a mix of products and again, perfect for travel. At $19 the Try It Kit from Smashbox is fantastic for completing this look. With foundation primer, lid primer, pencil eye liner, mascara and a nude gloss this kit has it all!
AHAVA Starter Kit, $20: You can also find great deals on skin care kits this time of year, which allows you to try the products without splurging for the full size. With a travel bag included and products in travel sizes, this kit is perfect for on-the-go and long weekend trips. Kit contains: Mineral Botanic Cream Wash, Mineral Hand Cream, Essential Day Moisturizer, and a Purifying Mud Mask.
Have a beautiful Thanksgiving!
