Must Have Makeup Palettes for Mom This Mother’s Day, 2016 Style!

My mom got me hooked on makeup when I was a teen! She taught me how to apply eyeshadow, how to line my eyes with eyeliner (thank goodness!) and the importance of mascara. Over the years my mom fell in love with a certain Chanel eyeshadow shade which I gifted her bi-annually (Christmas and her birthday). Unfortunately that eyeshadow was discontinued late last year. I searched high and low, I contacted various retailers in the hopes that I could find an eyeshadow that was similar, but unfortunately nothing compared…well, that was until I got her hooked on a certain Urban Decay makeup palette a few months ago. I just bought a new one and somehow that one has disappeared as well! 😉

If you’re searching for a great gift mom will love and she’ll have fun with, I’d definitely say go with a makeup palette or a makeup gift set! She may just find there’s a new color she loves, it’ll give you gals a chance to have a “beauty day” if she has you do her makeup and who doesn’t love makeup? Here are a few must have makeup palettes and gift sets for mom (and you too)!

I just started using the Urban Decay palettes about six months ago and I love them! My mom has hazel eyes and she really likes the Urban Decay Naked3 palette. My eyes are blue, and I absolutely adore the Urban Decay Naked palette.

Tom Ford makeup is everything! I adore his lipstick and can’t wait to try his amazing eyeshadows and bronzer. How fabulous is this Tom Ford eyeshadow quad? It comes in a variety of colors, but this neutral palette will suit every woman!

It’s true in life that you definitely get what you pay for, and in my book Chanel eyeshadows are tops! For my 18th birthday I had a Chanel makeup artist do my makeup and he used one of these quads. I never received more compliments than when that quad existed. If there’s a color or a quad that you love, your best bet is to pick it up right away as you never know when they’ll “retire” certain colors.

This quad is very close to the one I had years ago. It’s gorgeous! It’ll make blue eyes really stand out.




Adore this beautiful palette!

My mom got me hooked on Lancome eye makeup remover when I was a teen and I’ve been hooked ever since. As I mentioned above, my eyes are very sensitive and this is the only makeup remover I’ll use. I’ve tried a variety (even oils) but nothing and I mean nothing compares to this eye makeup remover! Love that it’s in this amazing makeup set which includes an eyeshadow palette, eyeliner, mascara primer and mascara. It’s the perfect kit! PS: You’ll even receive a gift with purchase!



Like many of you, I am obsessed with this contour kit, and so is my mom! Your “look” isn’t complete without it.
