As promised, here's the first look at some of the new goodies that you can pre-order at Nordstrom's Anniversary Pre-Sale. I fell in love with this nine-piece After Party Beauty Kit ($58) and four-piece After Party Brush Kit ($38). Both provide the perfect amount and combination of cosmetics and mini-brushes for a polished look. If you don't already have a set, I can't stress the importance of investing in a good set of makeup brushes enough. Having quality tools of the trade will greatly improve the way your makeup looks.

The After Party Beauty Kit comes in a really cute pewter metallic bag filled with - three eye shadows, a cream eye liner duo, black mascara, lip enhancing gloss, a blush/soft lights powder duo (for color and highlighting) and its famous photo finish foundation primer. The After Party Brush Kit includes a concealer brush (#4), an eye cream eye liner brush (#9), an eye definer brush (#15) as well as a blush brush (#16). If you've been looking for an all-in-one kit, either of these will give you everything you need. And considering the quality, the price is quite reasonable.
