This is not a list of sparkly gift palettes with bling packaging. Oh no, each one of these gorgeous products has been used in my kit again and again on many skin tones and many ages. I promise, whoever you give one of these to will be delighted – and if they are in any doubt, send them my way to book in a lesson and I will show them how to make it work for them…..
