Thank you to Nordstrom and Shopstyle for sponsoring this post.

My belief has always been that less is more, that makeup should enhance, not overshadow, and that makeup application shouldn’t take hours. I have a handful of favorite beauty items I use daily for quick, gentle coverage, color, and glow. This holiday season, I’m sharing the gift of simple beauty – lip tints and palettes in my sister’s stockings, small packages with eye tint and lipstick for close friends, and beauty bags filled with my favorite concealer, skin tint, and highlighter. Clean beauty items that I personally use and love, all available at Nordstrom.

Skin Palette

I love to gift an all-in-one skin palette that includes a bronzer, an illuminator, and blush. If you or a loved one are just getting into clean beauty, this is a great place to start.

Red Lipstick

A red lipstick adds a festive touch during the holiday season. Ilia’s lipstick in ‘Tango’ is the perfect red shade to last all day.

Tinted Powder

I use a tinted powder to set my makeup before adding any additional powders. Apply a small amount wherever you use concealer to keep it in place.
