Holiday Gift Guide 2018 – A Bag for Everyday

Bags are an integral part of our lives – whether we care to admit it or not. Where else would a woman store all her dearest belongings? And could anything get more personal than a bag? We think not.

Think about it. If you were to open your purse right now, what would you find? We’re guessing – by order of importance – your keys, your wallet, your makeup kit and all the little miscellaneous items you just keep for absolutely no reason at all. With that in mind, picking a bag that is both timeless and fashionable can be quite tricky because after all, you want a handbag that will last forever and stands the test of time. For those exact reasons, a handbag is the perfect gift to spoil yourself or others with.

So ladies, this festive season, pamper your loved ones with a selection of must-have handbags.

Easy Festive Party Glam 

It can be overwhelming getting yourself ready for all the holiday parties, so here’s what I like to do to keep beauty anxiety at bay. I basically come up with a look and just repeat it throughout the week to make it easier for me. Here is a go to look that doesn’t take too much time. 

I start off with the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup applied with my Beauty Blender. Then, Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer is perfect to give me the coverage I need with barely any rest. After filling in my eyebrows, I’m ready to start on the eyes. Using the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper Black, I line my eyes with a little cateye flick at the end. After applying Afterglow Blush in Rapture by Urban Decay, I’m ready for lips and MAC’s Ruby Woo Retro Matte lipstick is perfect for this look. After lots of mascara and preferably some falsies, I am ready to go. You can change this up by adding more eye makeup, but I like to keep it clean and just focus on the liner and bold lips.
