The Ultimate Beauty Gift Guide

Beauty gift guides are my favorite gift guides to round up! I’m always searching my favorite retailers finding the beauty products that are trending and up and coming. Whether you’re looking for a gift for yourself, your friend, or cousin, these gift ideas will not disappoint! As a beauty junkie, these are products that I personally recommend myself as well as products that are on my lust list. I don’t know about you guys, but I think I’m going to have to add all of these items to my cart for myself (LOL).  

A curated collection of Ultra Slim Lipstick refills paired with a limited edition pink applicator that can be used with all 15 shades. $340, Nordstrom.

You can never go wrong with gifting makeup brushes. Even if you’re looking to give them to yourself, makeup brushes tend to get expensive so it’s always best to buy them in a holiday set. $49.50, Mac Cosmetics.

Laura Mercier always have the best gift sets. The Eye Lights set includes two caviar stick eye colors in shimmering shades and one deluxe lash building mascara. $35, Saks Fifth Avenue.

The Shiny Things goody bag includes the all new slim eyeshadow pallete with shimmery and matte shades that can be used wet or dry to create the perfect smokey eye look.

The Phase 1 set includes three of the essentials items you need from Glossier such as the Boy Brow, Generation G lip color, and Stretch Concealer. $40, Glossier.

Facial rollers and tools have been all of the rage this year. The Skin Gym Rose Quarts workout kit helps to smooth out wrinkles and depuff while giving your skin a healthy glow. I like to keep my jade roller in the fridge to give my skin that cooling effect. $49, Nordstrom.

If you guys have been following me, you guys know how obsessed I am with this serum. I use it every morning and night and I have see a huge difference in my skin.

I was a little apprehensive to add this to my gift guide because of the price, but the Dyson Supersonic Hair dryer has been the topic of conversation for the past couple of years now. Is it worth the price? Why spend that much for a har dryer? But I have been reading nothing but great reviews and I think it’s a great gift! $399, Nordstrom.

I wanted to add this to my gift guide because it’s like having 3 gifts in 1. The T3 trio interchangeable curling iron set helps create polished, defined, or voluminous curls. $325, Nordstrom.

Sleeping a cotton pillowcase is a huge no no for your hair. Cotton dries out your hair and it’s not gentle at all. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase allows your hair to stay hydrated and healthy. $85, Urban Outfitters.

Not only is the packaging aesthetically pleasing, Gisou is a hair oil that is infused with honey, almond oil, and coconut oil to maintain your hairs moisture, for stronger and healthier hair. $88, Revolve.
