Here are some “works for everyone” options to help you pick the perfect present.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore, Hilary Duff and Rachel Bilson are all fans of Bobbi Brown. The Mini Bobbi Brights Palette is the perfect gift for the girl who loves to experiment with makeup, as well as the person who wants a lot of options in a small package. It features 20 eye shadow shades in a small compact that’s perfect for your purse or for traveling. There are pretty pastels, bright colors and rich eyeliner shades and it comes with a brush. $70 at www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com.
Looking for a perfect stocking stuffer? CHANEL’s LE VERNIS NAIL COLOUR in PULSION from the Holiday 2010 Collection is the perfect winter pick-me-up. The bright pink shade is universally flattering. $23 at fine department stores and www.chanel.com.
M-A-C has teamed up with legendary Dutch designer, Marcel Wanders, for a colorful holiday collection inspired by 17th century Flemish paintings, especially Vermeer’s famed work, “Girl With the Pearl Earring.” The limited edition collection includes four lipsticks, four lip gloss colors, Sheer Mystery Powder and Air of Style Scent Concentrate, among other items.

Keep skin soft and help a good cause all at the same time! Prices start at $27 at www.kiehls.com.
Victoria Beckham and Jessica Alba are big Jo Malone fans and it’s not hard to figure out why- who the heck doesn’t love to smell good!? The Jo Malone Cologne Collection features six scents that are the perfect size for traveling. The collection includes Grapefruit, Lime Basil & Mandarin, Orange Blossom, Pomegranate Noir (my fave!), Red Roses and Vanilla & Anise. The scents can be worn alone or layered. $95 at www.jomalone.com.
