Shopping may seem easy for your friends who have makeup tutorials bookmarked on their browsers and cabinets full of skin care. But with so many amazing products out there, how do you choose? Don’t worry, we got you! From a lipstick vault to a stunning new palette, shop these gifts for all the beauty junkies on your list this holiday season. (And don’t forget to treat yourself, too!)
Mirror, mirror on the wall — this is the smartest gift of them all. Not only can it analyze your skin, it also lets you track and manage all of your skin care products and maximize their results. You can use it to connect to Alexa, Spotify, and social media, too, and it has an array of different lighting options perfect for applying makeup.
OK, you may not necessarily think hair ties when you think holiday gift, but why not? Just make sure they’re cute, like this set of Invisibobbles. You get nine of the (snag-proof, crease-proof) elastics, in three different colors. Practical gifts for the win.
Four whipped body creams — in yummy scents like fresh fig and almond coconut milk — come housed in a perfectly giftable box (AKA no wrapping paper required). Also nice: They’re all travel-sized, so whomever you give them to won’t have to worry about flying back home with them.
Give the gift of complexion perfection. The Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush uses 18,000 (yes, you read that correctly) to help buff and blend any base seamlessly into skin; here, it comes with the beloved IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream.
Astrology fans and lipstick lovers alike will appreciate these 12, Zodiac-inspired mini lippies. The shades range from classic red to glittering gold, all with the same creamy texture and high pigment pay-off. It might be worth keeping one for yourself…just saying.
Three of the brand’s best-selling nail polish shades make this perfect for any mani moment. Prim is an opaque beige that works on all skin tones, Ardor is a glamorous and festive red, while the shimmering gold Gala screams New Year’s Eve party.
When in doubt, give a palette…especially when it’s an Urban Decay palette. This latest iteration looks just as cool on the outside as it does on the inside, with 19 never-before-seen shadows, plus an iridescent transformer shade that can be used underneath or over the others to totally change up the finished look.
You may not be able to give someone a vacation, but you can help them look like they just came back from one, thanks to this kit from Drunk Elephant, a fave brand among the in-the-know beauty crowd. It comes with bronzing drops for that sun-kissed color, marula oil for a glow-y finish, and lip balm, too.
