If you’re still looking for last-minute gift ideas, here are some suggestions that won’t require expedited shipping.
A personal makeup lesson
My friend Brian is a professional makeup artist who has worked with celebrities and loves to teach his techniques for using makeup to enhance natural beauty. From every day to evening and special occasion looks, he’ll teach you how to be your own makeup artist.
He’s now teaching via Zoom, so anyone can experience a Virtual Makeover at home! You can also purchase a gift card to give a personalized makeup lesson. The gift card recipient (individual or group) can schedule with Brian at their convenience.
To jump start your skincare regimen for the New Year, he’s also put together my three favorite Brian + MW skincare products in a specially priced set! This set includes Firming Neck & Throat Creme, Re-Creation Lip Treatment, and Illuminate & Contour Eye Treatment. (All products are paraben-free and cruelty-free.)
And there’s a special offer for my readers! Use code virtualbeauty for 10% off on all products and makeovers!
A gift that keeps giving all year long…
Each box is filled with uniquely French items, personally selected by Sharon Santoni. (The February box theme is going to be My French Country Kitchen, can’t wait!) Read my recap of the November box HERE.
A blink-and-you’ll-miss-it sale…
EILEEN FISHER is offering 25% off with code JOYFUL, but only until tomorrow.
So if there’s something you’ve had your eye on…
