Last Minute Gifts // Beauty Obsessed
Guys! This is such a great time to gift someone some really great BEAUTY products – a close BFF, your mother-in-law or secret Santa/White Elephant gift exchange with the girls?!
Lets be honest. We all have a BEAUTY Pinterest board…right? You read magazines while waiting in line at the checkout checking out makeup looks or fashion trends? Do you chat about beauty trends in makeup and products with your friends? Do you like to change up things in the New Year like your beauty routine or hair? Is your makeup OLD and you need to refresh your entire stash? Do you need a new cleansing/skincare/anti-aging routine? Do you just want to relax?!
Well, if you answered YES to any of the above I want to share a quick list of MUST HAVES that would be great holiday gift items for the BEAUTY OBSESSED.
First up, I want to share this super pretty wood grain aromatherapy essential oil diffuser. Guys, I use to seriously not be a believer in EO. But, after dealing with sniffly or feverish kids overnight who need to settle and sleep a EO diffuser has been the only cure! A few drops of Lavender, Sleepy-Head, or On Guard into the diffuser overnight while the kids sleep and they sleep all night! I also diffuse PURIFY during the day in the living room to get rid of unpleasant odors and purify the air in the most natural way. So, to recap I have a diffuser in each kid’s room and one in my car! The winter months can be so brutal with cough and colds and just an overall MEH feeling. Last winter I had ordered a USB Car Essential Oil diffuser and what a difference in my van! Kids love to watch the lights and I like that my van doesn’t smell like french fries and goldfish. Grabbing an EO diffuser for a beauty lover is a great gift to get them feeling less stressed during this chaotic time of year!
A really good lighted makeup mirror is another great item for anyone who uses any sort of beauty item. I have one that attached directly to my bathroom mirror by suction cup, but I also have one that sits upright on a small stand. I use both daily and can’t remember life without it! Great for daylight/nighttime makeup looks, seeing your skin really close up (YIKES) or men who shave!
A good set of makeup brushes is always a great item to gift! I mean, what is better than getting an entire pro set of brushes? I often say I’ll get a good complete set or buy a new single brush as a replacement. But, that is not a reality! Once in a while I’ll replace ONE and then another year goes by! I often use the brushes that are included with a product. But, it is so nice to have more than a few options!
A really beautiful eyeshadow palette is a great starting point to building your makeup collection. I love how you can get so many options from one piece! This LORAC PRO Palette is beautiful and includes an eye primer as well to keep your eyeshadow looking fresh all day long. A bit of a splurge around $44, but such a good value for this lux brand. 16 ultra-pigmented eye shadows infused with soothing botanicals. Formulated without sulfates, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs, or triclosan.
I love the look of a gel manicure. Have you tried one? The color lasts for a solid two weeks and stays ultra shiny and chip-free. If you can’t make it to the salon, ESSIE makes it SO EASY to give yourself the same gel manicure at home without the UV light and high price! I recently tried the ESSIE Gel Couture and was very impressed. A three step process and quick drying time. two coats of color and one top coat. About 5 minutes total and you have a beautiful manicure as if you went to the nail salon.
I grabbed this fragrance about a year and a half ago and it has easily become my FAVORITE! TOCCA Stella are beautifully bottled in an old world style. My favorite is the STELLA with scents of blood orange, Freesia, Spicy Lily, Sandalwood. This little sampler would be a great gift to treat someone to three scents!
