Budget-Friendly Holiday Gifts

The holidays are upon us! This year, I chose not to go shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday. I love a deal as much as the next person, but I’m over elbowing strangers for a $40 DVD player. Which means I’ve still got a lot of shopping to do!

Here are my pics for beauty gifts under $25.

Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System

At just $21 (Amazon.com), the Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System is perfect for those who want to try the Clarisonic, but don’t have/want to spend $200 on a facial brush.

Andis Ceramic Ionic Styler Hair Dryer

This hair dryer has made blowdrying my hair a breeze. With it’s easy to hold handle and detachable combs, it cuts my flatironing time in half.  (Find it at your local Target for about $20, or on Amazon.com for $15.79).

The American Music Awards 2014

Good morning! Last night, downtown LA was swarmed with celebs for the American Music Awards. The AMAs “pay tribute to today’s most influential and iconic artists,” or, you know, whoever they can get to show up.  This year saw performances by 5 Seconds of Summer, Iggy Azalea, Mary J. Blige, Garth Brooks, Charli XCX, Fergie, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Imagine Dragons, Jessie J, Wyclef Jean, Lorde, MAGIC!, Nicki Minaj, One Direction, Pitbull, Sam Smith and Taylor Swift. But let’s be real – I watch for the fashion! Here are my pics for the beautiful and the BUSTED.

Let’s start with the beautiful:

Tip of the Day

zitcartoonGot a nasty zit? Conceal it like a pro by following the steps below:

  1. Wash your face.
  2. Apply your favorite acne treatment to the zit.
  3. Moisturize your skin. Be sure to use an oil-free moisturizer to prevent further breakouts or exacerbate your current one.
  4. After applying foundation, apply just a dab of concealer to the zit.
