Bold Beauty Gift Ideas

Give your boldest friends the gift of can't-miss-me makeup this year. Here are 3 recommendations for the beauty queens on your list: 1. Lime Crime Candyfuture Lipstick, $16. This is true color saturation for the brightest star you know, complete with unicorn packaging. Sweet!

2. Lippmann Collection Happy Birthday nail color, $18. This polish is like a holiday party in a bottle. It's the perfect punch-it-up accessory for a little black dress. Glitter, glitter, glitter!

3. Bramble Berry Mineral Makeup Kit, $45. Anne and I made our own eyeshadows one afternoon, and it is F-U-N. (Though if you mix all the colors together, you get muddy brown -- best to follow their guidelines for prettier hues.) You end up with makeup that's something like Bare Escentuals and the products we love from The All Natural Face. The kit is pricey, but you can make 10+ different colors, so think of it as $4.50 per personalized gift!
