Today’s gift guide is for those of you who have women in your lives who love makeup, but don’t always like spending on themselves. Christmas is the perfect time to treat them to a special beauty item that they wouldn’t normally buy! Some of the above are tried and true items that I know and love, and others are products that I haven’t personally tried, but have heard great things about and are on my own beauty wish list. What is nice about these is that many of these would make lovely gifts on their own and are readily available at either Sephora or Nordstrom. So, get a piece of paper out, make your list and cross those last people off your list!
The Foreo Luna is something I’ve had my eye on for awhile because it claims to be more gentle and hygienic than others like it. This would make a great gift for someone who is into skincare.
I know what you’re thinking about the next product. Forty dollars for a lipstick? And while I would normally agree with you, I can’t this time and I’m sorry. I treated myself to this lipstick during a sale at Sephora and haven’t looked back since. It’s THE perfect colour, moisturizing, smells fantastic and has beautiful packaging. The only negative thing I have to say about it is the price.
The next two are products that I’ve heard great things about but haven’t tried myself. I haven’t yet delved into the world of Charlotte Tilbury makeup but this might have to be my first entry. It looks like the perfect everyday matte palette. Likewise, the Marc Jacobs blushes have great reviews and this one looks like the perfect, everyday flush of colour.
I know a concealer on a Christmas gift guide sounds a bit weird but hear me out: it’s the best concealer I’ve ever tried. This is probably something I’d recommend getting for a girlfriend or sister who you know is into makeup, because I hate to imagine the reaction you’d get on Christmas morning after your partner opens up a gift of unsolicited concealer. However, it covers beautifully and leaves a nice finish. I highly recommend it!
I couldn’t have a beauty gift guide without including a LORAC palette. Again, I haven’t tried this product myself but have heard wonderful things. It can be difficult to get your hands on in Canada which is why I think it would be a great gift for the beauty lover in your life.
The GLAMGLOW Supermud set would make a great gift for someone who hasn’t tried the brand yet. It contains three of their bestselling face masks that have great reviews.
