I love love giving the GIFT OF BEAUTY during the holidays.
I also love checking people off of my holiday shopping list in advance because last minute shopping drives me CRAZY!!
So if you’re wondering what to get that girly girl in your life, I have made a video of my TOP 5 Beauty Related Gifts that are guaranteed to put a smile on one lucky gals face this season! Click on the arrow above to start watching.
And keep reading towards the bottom of the post for links to shop all of the products online. (because who doesn’t love clicking “add to cart” instead of fighting the store crowds!!)
All 5 of these gifts are products I personally own, use, and adore. As a makeup artist and mom, I am sharing my most practical gifts for the makeup minimalist as well as beauty gifts for that makeup maven in your life! So there is something for everyone!
Gift #1 : Fizz & Bubble lip scrub ($6) and Fenty Beauty Universal Gloss Bomb lip luminizer ($18) This yummy tasting lip scrub is the perfect start to a pretty pout. Then after those lips are nice n soft, add Rihanna’s latest and greatest universal lip gloss that works on EVERY skin tone…I kid you not!! That’s why she only created ONE single gloss in her new Fenty Beauty line. She wanted one sexy neutral lip gloss option that worked for everyone. This is an inexpensive home-run beauty combo for all beauty lovers.
Gift #2 : it Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quois complexion palette ($42) I have talked about and recommended this palette for quite a while now. It is best for fair to medium skin tones (I think the blush is too light for super dark skin just FYI). But it’s got all the makings of a great complexion – pretty pink blush, the best highlighter, non-orange bronzer, and a poreless setting powder. All in one hanging palette with a huge mirror! You can check out my original YouTube video here showing how I use this awesome all in one palette.
Gift #3 : Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Icons Collection ($75) The ultimate beauty gift for the gal that lives and breathes celebrity makeup artistry! Charlotte is known as one of the top celebration makeup artists in the world (works with JLo, Penelope Cruz, Catherine Zeta Jones, etc!) and she has an amazing luxury beauty line. This boxed collection has mini versions of all of her favorite items from her line, like her must have Magic Cream, Glo lotion, lipstick, mascara, and a full sized Pillow Talk lip liner.
Gift #4 : Sephora “Life Is Short, Wear More Makeup!” canvas cosmetics bag ($24) When in doubt what to buy a makeup lover, get her a new travel makeup bag. And bonus points if it’s got a funny clever saying on it like this one!! I could easily fit a full face in this sturdy canvas bag. I’ve found some other cute honorable mention cosmetics bags here and here.
Gift #5 : Simple Human Sensor Mirror ($200) If you’re gonna wear makeup, you’re gonna need a mirror. And although $200 might sound a little pricey for a mirror, let me tell you, this one is TOTALLY worth the price tag. I’ve owned this mirror for over two years now and I can’t live without it. It’s got a ring light with a sensor that senses when your face is near and turns on and off automatically. The head swivels and the magnification shows every little stray eyebrow hair so you can pluck away!
