With so many festivities to take part in, comes the fun of curating fabulous outfits and a holiday makeup routine to put our best cheerful-foot forward. Let’s not forget that it is also the season of giving! And sometimes this can pose quite a challenge when you just can’t think of what gifts to give. But don’t fret because in this post I’m sharing beauty items that work great for a classic holiday makeup look & work just as well as gifts for this holiday season.
When it comes to makeup and my style, a classic and elegant look is always at the forefront of my mind. So a classic holiday makeup routine seemed like a wonderful idea for me to put together and share with you.
To bring this festive makeup look to life, a little help from Clinique & The Belk Department Store would be required.

This complete package includes the Chubette’s Gift Set, the Clinique Happy Gift Set, and the Merry and Bright Gift Set.

Next up on this holiday makeup list, the Merry and Bright Gift Set by Clinique. Literally, every piece you could need to create a classic holiday look is in this set.

This classic holiday makeup look requires, an eyeshadow set with shades that work during the day but also will also make a statement at night.

The possibilities for your holiday beauty routine, with these sets, are endless.
While they help create a classic makeup look for the holidays they also can be wonderful gifts to share with those lovely ladies in your life.
I’m not going to lie, when it gets close to the holidays I’m usually behind on shopping for gifts. On top of that, I really struggle when it comes to gift ideas. However, I can easily see these sets as wonderful gifts because each set is versatile enough for those with different tastes.
With the Chubettes, there’s such a large selection of colors, I’m pretty sure any gal could find a few shades in this collection that’ll make her heart sing.
I’ve also found, after trying the colors myself, that mixing a few different shades together brings out colors I love the most. Who doesn’t love something that’s custom made to their own liking? We’re all unique, aren’t we?? And I always love having many options so this my loves, is a win-win when it comes to a perfect beauty gift!!
As for the Clinique Happy Gift Set, it features a fragrance with very subtle & fresh scent. For some women, perfumes that have too strong of a scent can be a total turn off but this one I think is just right which makes for a good gift as well.
And again the Merry and Bright Set has just about every essential needed to create a look that will be holiday glam or even classic and understatedly elegant.
