Gift Guide: For the Beauty Buff
The time is now, according to one make-up artist, to stock up on generously packed and reasonably priced all-in-one kits.
“These [cosmetic] companies realize that for a lot of people, money is really tight and they’re packing a lot into a make-up kit,” says Shereen Nicole, owner of SN Makeup (SNMakeup.com) and an NYC-based professional make-up artist of 11 years.
"Now, you can get products for a complete [made-up] face for half the price," she adds. "That’s never happened."
