AMW Gift Ideas: For the Make Up Learners and Lovers

Christmas day is less than 10 days away!  I seriously haven't really gotten the chance to sit down and breathe, but I'm not complaining here, my year 2016 is such a wonderful year I don't mind repeating this all over again for 2017!

Now, are you done with your Christmas shopping?  I know I am still cramming for a couple of get-together and reunions!  So I'm definitely panicking (a bit!)  Thankfully, there are a couple of ideas I can share..this time, for our Make Up Loving friends and those who plan to study make up artistry too!

If you haven't seen on my social media posts, well, I have to repeat this again, to celebrate Benefit's 5th Birthday in the Philippines, they are offering 20% off ON ALL PRODUCTS (Except gift sets) until December 18, 2016 (Sunday)  And our favorite HOOLA products are on 50% off!  So please hurry and stock up on your favorite Benegoodies!  

On top of my head, I am definitely stocking up on ---

  • Benefit That Gal Primer
  • Benefit 3D Brow Tones
  • Benefit POREfessional Balm
  • Benefit Gimme Brow
  • Benfit Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW powder and liquid foundation

Now if you want a huge surprise for a friend who plans to study make up artistry, you may want to look into Pro Studio Beauty Exclusive Concealer/Corrector Palettes.

Pro-20 Concealer Palette

Php1,250.00 (priced at Php938.00 at
This palette is indeed God-sent for those who are looking for good quality yet affordable concealer/corrector for make up school or just for practice!  I know I survived expenses in make up school with palettes such as these!

If you think the 20 Palette is too much and wanted something more compact and smaller, you may opt for ...

15 Color Corrector Palette

Php700.00 (priced at Php525.00 at
Note: Sorry for the "perspiring" concealer/corrector, it was hot in the room where I store this palette!  It is still in good condition and consistency is still great!

Both palettes I've used and tested for a couple of months now, they are creamy, highly pigmented and very easy to blend!  So far, I do not have issues with allergies or skin irritations and they are great if set properly!  Truth be told, creams are a bit tricky to work with especially for first-timers, BUT, with a lot of practice, you'll get the hang of contouring with cream products and even appreciate how these different shades can correct acne marks, freckles, sun spots, blemishes and a whole lot more!

If you are gifting your friends with professional makeup products, you may as well include Makeup and Beauty Tools Sanitizer and so far, I am impressed with Laverne.

For the price of Php399.00 for 60ml and Php599.00 for 150.00
They smell really good and can clean my brushes, eyelash curlers and other makeup tools pretty well.  You only need to do a bit of extra effort for brushes with liquid/cream makeup products.

Lastly, my favorite makeup tools brand Nippon Esthetics made gifting easy with their site wide sale!  Everything is 10% off online PLUS Free Shippong on orders over Php2,000!

You may stock on Bohk Toh lashes (my favorite!)  Mythe Nail Polish Remover (which I absolutely love!)  and now, they added a new brand called 1010 TENTEN and I can't wait to try their Magic Nail Polish Remover and their new polishes!  

If you want to reach Php2,000 and you don't what to buy?  Stock up on their sponges, their cotton pads, disposable mascara wands and all the she-bangs of make up artists!  

 I can go on and on and on with Christmas Gift Ideas for the make up lovers!  But I need to catch some rest since this week has been crazy!  I'll definitely collate and add more and will share more news on sales!

What else can you recommend to gift for our makeup loving friends?
