Holiday Gift Guide: For the Beauty Lover

I’m starting a new series called ‘Holiday Gift Guide’ (so original, right?) where I’ll be sharing all the best picks from around the web for that special someone in yo life. Every week leading up to Christmas will be focused on a different categories (fashion, tech, foodie, etc) and this week is for the beauty lover! Little shoutout to all my friends and family, check this post out, I want it all 😍 What is your favorite from this guide? Are you hoping for a beauty item for Christmas? Let me know in the comments! 


1- Tiered Vestige Cosmetics Holder: I recently counted out how many tubes of lipstick I had, it came out pretty close to 100. I only wear about 20 of those colors on a weekly basis, haha! Being such an organized person, this little holder would show off my favorite lipsticks without looking cluttered! Plus, whoever you get this for wouldn’t have to spend 5 minutes looking through their makeup drawer looking for that one lipstick tube. Win? Totally.

2- Bobbi Brown Twilight Pink Lip & Eye Shadow Palette // The holidays are all about showing off that sparkle and this palette definitely takes the lead. The cutest little palette that works for those who love to add a little color during the holiday to both their eyes and lips! Help out that special lady of yours with getting her this Bobbi Brown palette (she’ll love it 😍).

3 // Homemade Beauty: For any of your all-natural beauty friends out there, this book is for them! 150 simple beauty recipes that you can make yourself. Not only is it a great stocking stuffer, but it’s perfect for those who love to learn how things are made (in this case, makeup). And who doesn’t want to know how to make their own foundation?

4-  MAC ‘Stroke of Midnight’ Kit (sold out, similar): The ultimate holiday beauty set! Ring in the new year with some new beauty products that works flawlessly for going to day to night. Plus, it offers an array of products for your eyes, lip, and face! Sadly, this one is all sold out, but I’m linking a similar set that offers more products and is equally gorgeous!

5- Aquarian Soul Bath Soak Vial // After the crazies of the holidays, all we want to do is get into a hot bath and relax. How gorgeous is this bath vial? It comes in 4 different scents and is made from all natural ingredients! The scent from the image above is ‘Full Moon’ and is scented with calendula flowers, lemon balm, and chamomile flowers.

6 // Slip Silk Pillowcase: You’re probably wondering why I included a pillowcase in this gift guide, right? Silk pillowcases are magical for keeping your hair intact and looking flawless right when you wake up. Any beauty lover knows the pros of having a silk pillowcase, but not a lot own them because they tend to be a little more expensive then a regular cotton pillowcase. This would make a fun stocking stuffer!

7 //  essie Holiday Mini Nail Polish Kit: This kit combines the hottest colors from this year, including blush and gold! This would be so cute as a stocking stuffer (I’m a huge fan of stockings, can you tell?)

8 // GLAMGLOW Sexy Kissable Lips Set: I don’t know about your beauty lover, but my lips get so dry in the winter! Not only does this lip set nourish, it exfoliates and plumps the lips (win win win). Plus, packaging is so chic!

    I’ve always heard about how silk pillowcases are a god send, but have never gotten around to getting one. Also, that lipstick holder is super cute! I can’t believe you have that many lipsticks!

      Thank you so much Carly! I still have yet to create a list of all the people I need to get gifts for this Christmas. I love giving gifts, so unless I have a list and stick to it, I could spend my entire bank account on giving gifts haha!
