So I must admit.. I’ve had the worst writers block over the last two weeks. I can blame it on work, family events, or laziness but I swear I’ve sat at my desk with intent to write and 5 minutes later I’m checking out all the awesome holiday sales. Maybe this writers block is a blessing in disguise because I have gotten every Christmas gift out of the way. All that’s left are stocking stuffers! Now I think it’s fitting for me to help you get your shopping done. Here’s a beauty gift guide to help you choose gifts for those special people in your life. I’ve chosen all products below from Sephora with a $50 budget in mind! P.S. To my friends & Family: Do not get any ideas! These aren’t spoiler alerts and I didn’t get these gifts for you. Sorry 😉 ! For Your BFF: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette Urban Decay has launched 2 Naked palettes before this one and they have cleverly launched #3 just in time for the holidays. The Naked3 Palette has every beautiful shade of brown and beige with and without glitter which makes this palette a perfect fit for every type of woman. If you know anything about makeup, you know that your BFF will LOVE you if you buy this for her. Retails at Sephora for $52. For The Beauty Who Only Wears Chapstick: Fresh Sugar Treasures We all know a beautiful girl who literally only wears chapstick. Even though we may not agree with her lack of love for eyeshadow we should embrace the fact that she takes care of her lips! Fresh Sugar Lip Conditioners are a personal favorite of mine. I have one stashed in my car for when I need a little hint of color but mostly silky smooth hydration.. Especially in this weather! And since you may not know her shade, She’ll have 6 to choose from which will last her a long time! Retails at Sephora for $50. For The One Who Has The Best Blowout, Always: Drybar The Morning After Kit I most certainly need to have the best head of hair at all times. When I have a bad hair day I’m super annoyed at the world and feel like I look really ugly. If you know a girl like this, This is the perfect gift! The Drybar Shower Cap is a cap designed specifically for girls who really want their blowout to last. It holds all of your hair ( Yup, ALL of it ) and protects it from moisture with a terry towel that lines it. The Detox Dry Shampoo is a staple in my cabinet and always refreshes my hair when it gets oily looking. The only advice is to spray far from your head. The powder can easily turn your locks grey if your brunette! Retails at Sephora for $35. For Your Teenage Sister: Ciate Mini Mani Month Nail art has grown to be one of the biggest beauty trends this year. Everyone from your mom to your boss is probably rocking a killer manicure right as we speak. And who knows the trends more than you? Your teenage sister! Having the cutest nails are a must! And she will love that this Ciate Mini Mani Month kit comes with 18 different colors and 6 fun sparkly add ons; Caviar Beads, Sequins, & Glitter. Retails at Sephora for $58. For The Fashionista: Sephora Collection Make an Entrance Clutch Brush Set We tend to forget to think of tools when we buy makeup. How many of you have boxes of shadows, lipsticks, & palettes but maybe 2 makeup brushes? This Sephora Collection Make An Entrance Clutch Brush Set is the perfect gift for anyone who wears makeup. Plus, it comes with a gorgeous clutch. A perfect accessory for New Years Eve! 😉 Retails at Sephora $59. For Your Mom, His Mom, A New Mom: Tocca Beauty Eau De Parfum Viaggio Trio I’ve always noticed Tocca as a brand while smelling scents at Sephora but never ended up choosing it. I don’t know what’s changed but I really really love their gifts for this holiday season! I’ve smelled every scent in the fragrance sets and every scent was different yet feminine and sexy. For a mom you may be gifting that loves to smell good, This is a perfect pick. Each italian glass bottle resembles a “girl” who may speak to you. This set includes; Margaux, Liliana & Florence. Retails at Sephora for $45. For Your Sister, His Sister, His Girlfriend: Benefit Cosmetics Little Love Potions Every time I think of Benefit Cosmetics I think of one word. Fun! The products all have a quirky name that gets you interested and has a straight to the point purpose. It’s perfect for your average gal that likes to wear makeup but likes “natural” makeup. In the Benefit Cosmetics Little Love Potion kit she will be able to try a little bit of everything and easily stash it in her purse or gym bag. Retails at Sephora for $36.00. For The Guy In Your Life: The Art of Shaving The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave If I’m thinking of buying beauty products for a guy there’s only three things that come to mind. A new cologne, A razor for a beard, or a really awesome version of chapstick. To narrow it down a little further.. Most dudes have facial hair. ( Except my brother, Sorry bro! 😉 ) Why not upgrade his man-scaping experience with fancy shaving products that will definitely protect and correct his manly appearance! The Art of Shaving has narrowed it down to the perfect set with a prep, a shaving cream, and an after balm all with the scent of sandalwood. Smooth skin & the perfect scent? A must! Retails at Sephora for $60. For The One With Incredible Skin: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Head to Toe Hydration Kit No matter what skincare routine you have, you will almost always notice a change in your skin once the cold weather comes. Every woman should ( if she doesn’t already ) change her skincare routine for the seasons. And for the holiday season, extra hydration is key. First Aid Beauty is the perfect choice because it’s formulated without parabens, sulfates, and Phthalates making it suitable for ANY person. Even those with skin allergies!
