For all of you last minute shoppers looking for a stocking stuffer or that perfect little something to top op a gift, you're in luck! Here are some of my favorite beauty minis that won't break the bank.
Beauty Blender- This magical sponge is well deserving of all it's hype. Get the sponge wet and squeeze out all the excess water, then dip into your favorite face makeup and stipple (tap) all over your face. The sponge has a nice bounce that makes application a breeze and feels like a face massage!
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl- I love all the Nars lip pencils but this color is sexy, bold and perfect for the holidays (or anytime you want to rock a red lip)! It glides on smoothly and the blue-ish red looks great on any skin tone.
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray- Urban Decay makes 3 setting sprays and they are all great! Best part, they come in this mini travel size so you can throw it in your purse or pack it in a carry on. It's basically hair spray for your makeup and keeps you looking flawless all night long... perfect for New Years Eve!
Josie Maran Argan Oil- Argan oil is an all natural moisturizer that does wonders for your skin. You can apply it to clean skin in the morning for an extra glow and at night to keep your skin moisturized and soft. This mini version is the perfect option because a little goes a long way!
GlamGlow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment- This celebrity favorite really does make your skin glow, but at $60 bucks a pop the $19 mini is the perfect trial run. Apply this to cleansed skin for 10 minutes and your skin will feel completely rejuvenated.
Rosebud Perfume Rosebud Salve in a Tube- This old school favorite does wonders for your lips! I love the tube version because and you don't need to get your fingers sticky.
Christmas is just around the corner and everywhere you turn there are gift guides and flashing lights enticing you to buy things for everyone on your list, and let's be honest, yourself too! When I'm hitting the mall for my holiday shopping I want to be sure and get the most bang for my buck and feel like I am getting a good value by taking advantage of all the specials this time of year.
Whether you are looking for the makeup maven on your list or you need to restock your makeup bag for all the holiday parties on your calendar, this is the best time to buy makeup and beauty products. Brands wait all year long to compile their bestsellers and they're also trying to get rid of everything that didn't fly of the shelfs. Check out my favorite value sets!
Beauty, clothes and jewelry... what more can a girl ask for!? Last Friday Carleylu went from digital to boutique at Korner Kloset in Redondo Beach. I joined two friends, Korner Kloset and Origami Owl, for a one-stop-shop for the fashionistas and beauty queens on everyone's Christmas list. Carleylu featured holiday gift bags packed with my favorite NYX Cosmetics products along with 3 quick steps to go from work to your holiday party.
I am very excited that this event was the first of many more to come so stay tuned for the next event at Korner Kloset and be sure to leave comments if there is anything you want to see at the next event!
