Cute Press holiday makeup gift ideas

The season of joy and gifting is upon us once again, and what better way to celebrate the festivities than to give back to our friends and loved ones?

Every year, I rack my brains to come up with practical, functional, and affordable presents for my friends – gifts that all my girlies would enjoy without breaking my bank. And I’m sure by now your calendar is starting to fill up with Christmas dinner plans that would probably require some gifting options. How about giving the gift of glow and fun with Cute Press’ holiday makeup collection?

Here’s how I get ready for the holidays, and while you watch to the end of the video, check out my thoughts on the individual featured products below.

Island-inspired joy with Tropical Breeze

Living in our hot and tropical climates, finding the right makeup that stays put and withstands the constant heat and humidity can be a challenging task. Inspired by and formulated for our tropical weather, Cute Press created a Tropical Breeze makeup collection with 4 eye palettes and accompanying lip tints. And those, are exactly All You Need for that year-end #beachlife vacation.

  • All You Need Palette

With 4 different shade variants designed to suit Asian skin tones, the All You Need Palette is the perfect compact travel companion. What I love about this palette is that it not only houses 4 eyeshadow shades, but also has got a complementary blush shade underneath! How convenient!

Each palette also features a combination of matte, shimmer and glitter textures that are water-resistant and crease-proof – great for our tropical climate. The eyeshadows are highly pigmented yet blendable and are super wearable.

Because of how compact and practical these palettes are, they make for lovely stocking stuffers for the girls!

  • All You Need Fixing Tint

A makeup look can never be completed without lipstick, don’t you agree? Complementing the All You Need Palettes are the All You Need Fixing Tints. These lip tints are lightweight, yet they feel so luxurious and hydrated on the lips. I love a good lip tint that glides smoothly and distributes colour evenly on the lips and this does exactly that.

Infused with hyaluronic lip serum to instantly plump up lips, you can achieve that moisturised, juicy pout for up to 12 hours. They are also long-lasting and smudge-proof, so you can be sure that your girlies’ lips won’t melt in the hot beach weather.

Also, each fixing tint is made to complement the palettes, hence the shades are named after the palettes too!


Sweet, sweet glow with Hya Lip Balms

Give the gift of glow this Christmas! Lip balms are must-haves in any girl (or guy)’s vanity pouch so these Hya Lip Balm Sets will be your best bet. Each set contains 4 lip balms in delicious, fruity flavours and colours – definitely a pop of fun for touch ups on-the-go.

Formulated with hyaluronic acid and natural botanical oils rich in Vitamin E, these easy-to-glide-on lip balms provide up to 12 hours of moisture, ensuring your lips stay glossy and hydrated throughout your Christmas parties.

My festive gifting pro tip: get both lip balm sets, and you now have 8 little presents for your loved ones and yourself! 😉
