Hi there, it’s Amanda Ramsay @amandaramsaymakeup and I'm your over forties makeup expert.

Lunchtime Live is your weekly makeup inspiration session for over 40’s. It’s hosted on @amandaramsaymakeup every Thursday. It’s been a long year for our Sisters in Victoria and New South Wales and with the holiday season fast approaching there is some much-needed light at the end of a very long tunnel! Yes we are all feeling far more hopeful and looking forward to reconnecting with the peeps we love the most.

In this week’s live makeup session (click here if you missed it), we introduce you to some of the Holiday Gift Kits. Magnificent makeup, skin and beauty gifting ideas that you can shower your much-missed loved ones with this holiday festive season. Hugs, picnics, reconnection and sharing gifts of love, Christmas is coming early this year. Below is a sneak peek of what we’ve carefully curated for the over 40’s women in your life (plus a couple ideas for the teen’s and mean) … you may even choose to add these to your own wish list (and not-so-subtly start dropping those hints).

Now I know it’s only October, but we are planting that seed of Christmas and holiday gifting now, as the old postal service in this amazing country of ours, is under the pump. So 2021 is not the year to be a last-minuter. Heaven knows what our friend Corona has in store, and ya know, we just can’t see around corners. Below are a few of our top picks.
