Ultra-glam beauty gifts are fun to give, of course, but it’s often necessary to consider what the recipient might actually be able to wear in her everyday life. Not everyone has a job where teal eyeshadow and fake lashes are things that would be considered appropriate, and not everyone has the kind of outside-of-work life where they’d be considered fun or necessary.
And some people just don’t like loud makeup. For them, there are gifts like the Laura Mercier Baked Eye Color Palette. Mercier is know for her muted colors and high-quality products, and these five shadow shades give the recipient a dozen different ways to design their eye look. It’s neutral without being schlumpy, just as workplace makeup should be.
