EauMG’s 2018 Holiday Gift Guide for Vintage Beauties

Janet Blair Christmas

I apologize for posting my gift guides so late this year. I’m busy and I keep telling myself better late than never.  I know that I mainly make these guides for myself so my thought is that it doesn’t matter when I post these. These are merely reminders of the sort of things I want to buy myself. 

Here’s my annual holiday gift guide for glamorous types that would be happy to have back-seamed stockings in their stocking! This is the gift guide for those that appreciate the timeless elegance of red lipstick, perfectly set… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Question of the Week: Are you buying anything during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sale?

EauMG’s Answer: Oh, good question. I’m trying my best to be “good” but there are so many tempting things! I haven’t bought anything (yet).

Question of the Week: Have you ever bought a product JUST because you want the GWP (gift with purchase?)

Question of the Week: What is your HG eyeshadow palette from the drugstore?

EauMG’s Answer: There are actually many drugstore palettes that I like. For neutrals, I think L’Oreal Colour Riche La Palette Nude 1 is good (it’s like Lancôme at a cheap price). I also love Makeup Revolution Ultra Eye Contour Light & Shade Palette. It’s all matte. Another great matte is e.l.f. Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette
