"Live to Give"

My father's life motto. He is the most generous man you will probably ever meet. I grew up in a household where a generous spirit was and still is believed to take you far in life. And with this comes the act of giving..."Live to Give"

Gifts! Who doesn't love to receive presents? But sometimes, finding the right gift can be a challenge. Let's review some guilt-free beauty finds that will make perfect gifts for those you adore. Sisters, moms, friends, best friends, cousins and so on. You don't need to break the bank to show your affection. It doesn't matter if you can't afford all of these ideas-- pick one or two!

For the makeup fiend: Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition Coral Cosmetic Case, $12.99

The perfect size with different sized pockets on the inside for all the goodies. Small enough for the traveler, but large enough to hold all the necessities and luxuries.

For the simplistic type: Sonia Kashuk Double Zip Foldover Costemic Bag- Floral, $9.99


An adorable print and small enough for the purse! With a price you can't beat. No luxuries in this bag-- just the ever day needs-- gloss, concealer, mascara.

For the bold: MAC Mineralized Duo Blush, $22.50

We all know my love for MAC. This blush is gorgeous-- baked in minerals to create a crystal effect on your cheeks. Layer depending on how dramatic you want the color. It will last forever and gives you two shades so you can blend perfectly to your desired tone. An awesome gift! I received this from my best friend for Christmas and I'm still using it. Touche!

For the drama queen: Sephora by OPI Digital Diva Collection, $9

OPI bumped up their collection by partnering with Sephora and creating a fantastic collection of nail colors. $9 may seem steep for a nail polish, but this stuff is like butter for your nails. Goes on evenly and smooth and rarely chips. The Digital Diva collection is great for the dramatic type-- bright and sassy.

For the free spirit: NARS Lip Lacquer, $24.00

Thick, soft and long-lasting, this lip color sits in a deep dish and gives awesome color. In a great variety of shades, it's perfect for the free spirit, individualistic. A small amount goes far. Hot pinks and deep plumbs, my favorite to give is Baby Doll or Eros, shades to match most tones.

Bee generous!
