I always say that when it comes to gifting me something for the holidays or my birthday it’s super easy. You can pretty much give me anything beauty related and I’m a happy camper. These beauty gift ideas include everything from makeup to skincare and haircare for all of your beauty lovers on your shopping list. Many of the products listed are tested and loved by yours truly. Other products are simply things that I’ve had my eye on for a while. Santa if you’re listening I’ve been good this year! Keep reading for some beauty gift ideas!
When it comes to cosmetics there are a few brands that never disappoint. Charlotte Tilbury is a classic so you can’t go wrong with any of their gift sets. Fenty Beauty is another brand that has built a cult following. Some of my favorites are the Gloss Bomb, Kilawatt Highlight, and the Body Lava.
Another favorite beauty product is these magnetic lashes by Lola’s Lashes! They have to be the easiest lashes to apply. All you have to do is apply the liquid liner and the magnetics on the lashes will cling to the liner! And the pair that I received (it was a gifted item but opinions are always my own) looks so natural!
When it comes to beauty skincare is where it’s at. More and more people are focusing on healthy clear skin rather than loads of makeup and I’m here for it! Glossier (a brand I have yet to try – I know crazy!) is known for its focus on dewy clear skin. Their Skincare Edit is on my list as it has a bunch of their top-selling items.
As for skincare products that I’ve actually used and loved this Pink Clay mask by Sand and Sky is a favorite. So much so that I’m on my third jar! I use it once a week or every other week in order to keep my skin clear of acne. I really think this is what has been helping my skin look so good over the past few years. Skin Owl is another favorite brand as their products are clean and smell (naturally) amazing!
You guys know that I am a huge fan of Mani Me! They make stick-on nail gels that come in amazing designs and last for about two weeks. If nail gels aren’t your thing (but you should really try them cuz it’s so easy) then OPI is one of my favorite brands. Olive and June make adorable nail stickers to jazz up your manicure.
Skincare tools have been having a moment over the past few years and for good reason. They make it easy to get spa-like results at home for a fraction of the price. Right now I’m obsessed with anything that you can use to massage your face. Like gua sha, jade rollers, and this skin owl roller. This PMD Cleansing Device is also a regular in my skincare routine since receiving it in my Causebox a few months ago.
Some beauty tools that are on my wishlist include this pore extractor/serum infuser ( I mean how cool does that sound?) and these ice globes. I’ve read that any kind of ice roller can do wonders for inflammation and sculpting your face!
Over the past few months, I’ve been trying out a lot of new hair products and have discovered a few new favorites. If you’re looking for a versatile hot tool, check out this 10 in one curling iron. It’s under $50 and will give you so many options for any kind of curl look that you are going for! I’ve also been loving the Revlon hot blow dryer as it helps me to achieve that salon blowout that’s so difficult to get at home.
If you’re looking to give the gift of hydration Coco and Eve make lovely hair masks. As does Somerfield Beauty. If you’re looking for stocking stuffers I am a big fan of the Invisi Bobbi and these hair ties that are amazing for thick hair. I mean they really hold my hair through my workouts and are perfect for thick-haired ladies looking to create a high pony!
