Make Her Up Must Have's 2014


For the makeup lover who has it all, spoil her with something from the much anticipated  Karl Lagerfeld and Shu Uemura Shupette Holiday collection.  A collection inspired by a cuddly white cat with piercing blue eyes. This must have collection is here for a limited time.



The collection contains 15 pieces, including the Shupette Has-It-All Eye & Lip Palette, two eye trios, two rouge trios, blush singles, eyeliners, face powder, and a glitter set. Also included in are faux lashes, nail polish, cleansing oil, a brush set, and an eyelash curler.

A very feminine collection filled with soft pinks, cool blues and soft golds. I sampled one of the eye-need shu eye trios and it doesn’t disappoint!

You can also win the entire collection by entering this contest on Shu Uemura’s website!

This eye trio is perfection. The colors are so vibrant and I love all the ways I can combine these shades for different looks. I really like that the shimmer is kept to a minimum to show off the color and not overdose on glitter. You can’t go wrong with a gift from this limited edition collection.

Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have #5: BareMinerals 2014 Holiday Collection – the Eyes!


Make Her Up was sent some samples of BareMinerals Holiday Collection. Over the next couple days we’ll be sharing with you what we’ve tried and what we loved (and we loved it all!). Remember MHU doesn’t receive payment for these posts…. just some pretty fantasical products.

First, check out one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE palettes, the Ready Convertible Eyeshadow Palette! This Limited-Edition palette is just as gorgeous as it looks, trust me. I have this one from last year and I’m STILL using it! This thing will last an eternity! BareMinerals Eyeshadow really, truly is about as good as it gets. With the use of a primer (here’s my favorite) this shadow will stay on for 24 hours. Okay, it will stay on for 48 hours, and I’ll just let you think that I wash my makeup off every night like a good girl.

The possibilities are endless with this palette. Hundreds, thousands, MILLIONS of looks are possible with this gorgeous set! Did you notice that the center pops out into a cute mini-palette when you want something smaller? I mean c’mon, it’s genius.


This beautiful palette is only $39 – and that is a STEAL! Don’t wait! This limited edition will be gone before you know it! 


Next we have I Love the Nightlife and Afternoon Delights! Each come with 5 Lasting Line and Long Wearing Eyeliners. These go on so easily and beautifully you will be shocked with the results!

Combine these two products together – and imagine the possibilities!
