A few of my faves that any makeup guru will love!
I fell completely in love with makeup this year and spent an unruly amount at Ulta (Don’t tell Taz! 😉 ) I discovered a lot of incredible products that would make amazing gifts for any girl friend, wife or mom. This year, I put together this beauty gift guide with a lot of my favorite makeup and beauty products so you know what the good stuff is!
L’Occitane gift sets
I love L’Occitane’s adorable gift sets! My two favorites are the Hand Cream Bouquet and the Mini Festive Crackers because it’s a great way to test all of the different products without having to buy full-size bottles. They’re some of the perfect stocking stuffers for any skincare lover!
Ofra holiday palette
I talked about the Ofra Holiday Glow Palette on my Instagram stories last week and HOLY CRAP! It’s one of the best palettes I own. It has eyeshadow, blush, bronzer and highlight all in one place! This palette works really well for me since I don’t have a ton of time to get ready in the morning and I don’t want to be wasting time looking around for other products. The pigments are stunning and they are in a variety of colors for majority of skin types.
Fizz and Bubble Sugar Scrub
This sugar scrub is life-changing! It’s solid like a bar of soap and works really well at exfoliating the skin. I have the vanilla scrub and I don’t know if I will go back to regular sugar scrub again. Fizz and Bubble also has a Lip Sugar Scrub which is to die for! You can thank me later.
Naked Ultimate Basics Palette
Now it’s back to basics! I got the Naked Ultimate Basics Palette over Black Friday and fell in love with the colors. I gravitate towards more matte eyeshadows and these have no glitter whatsoever. This is a great palette for beginners since there are many color spectrums, but with more muted tones.
It’s a 10 Leave-in Conditioner
This stuff is my holy grail! I’m convinced It’s a 10 Leave-in Conditioner is the only way anyone can achieve soft silky hair. (The key is to get the bottle with keratin in it!) Try it out and I promise you will thank me later!
Kristen Ess Beach Wave Spray
I tried this beach wave spray a few weeks ago and now I use it in my everyday hair routine. It adds the lift and volume I need without drying out my hair like other sprays I’ve used. Definitely a hair game-changer!
Sun Bum Lip Balm
These lip balms go in every single stocking! They smell incredible and feel like you’re at the beach. It doesn’t leave lips sticky and I refuse to leave the house without one.
Batiste Dry Shampoo
This is another addition to my hair routine. It’s a dry shampoo that actually WORKS! It dries up oil quickly and doesn’t leave a filmy residue. Last Christmas, I asked for this and got 4 bottles! Since last year, I’ve only used 1 ½ bottles so it will last you a while.
Neutrogena Makeup Removing Wipes
I know majority of girls have tried these makeup removing wipes, but you can never have too many! I use them every single day and it doubles as washing my face in a hurry. These are another thing I can never leave the house without.
Roller Lash Mascara
I love this mascara! I don’t have the time (or money) to continually get eyelash extensions. These do the work for me by curling and lengthening at the same time. I’ve never had longer eyelashes than with the Roller Lash mascara!
Tarteist Lip Paint
Everytime I wear Tarteist Lip Paint on my Instagram stories, I get dozens of messages asking what it is. Well here you go! These are the best formula and absolutely worth every penny. It doesn’t dry out your lips, but it stays for hours at a time (and doesn’t transfer!)
I can’t stress to you enough how much my Beachwaver has changed my life! It is a curling iron that is motorized and curls your hair on it’s own. All you have to do is clamp and push a button! (I have my hair tutorials here and here.) Taz got it for me last year for Christmas and it is easily the best gift I have ever received.
Ofra Makeup Fixer
I bought this makeup fixer spray on a whim during Black Friday and I love it! It’s the best makeup setting spray I’ve used and it doesn’t leave my face feeling sticky like other ones I’ve used in the past.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
This all-day lipstick rivals the Tartist Lip Paint in formula and has the prettiest colors! My friend suggested getting the color Patina first and it is one of my go-to’s!
Stila Glitter and Glow Eyeshadow
I saved the best for last! The Stila Glitter and Glow eyeshadow is my favorite product on this entire beauty gift guide. It lasts all day long and doesn’t have much fall out. I have the color Kitten Karma and I asked for every other color in my stocking this year!
I know that was a long list, but those are all my favorite things that any girl would love to receive! Hopefully, this beauty gift guide gave you some ideas to give (or receive) this year! If you have any beauty faves, share them in the comments below! Merry Christmas!
