Must-Have Beauty Products and Gift Ideas for the Holidays

Must-Have Beauty Products and Gift Ideas for the Holidays

It’s that time of year again! Time to make my laundry list of fabulous Christmas gifts. But in the spirit of this blog, I have assembled a list of this season’s must-have beauty products. From the best beauty books to the perfect holiday rogue, here is a quick guide to some of my favorite beauty products I would love to see tucked under my Christmas tree:

1. Sephora Prestige Luxe Brush Set

This 12-piece set of makeup brushes will keep you covered for Christmases to come. From the traditional powder brush to the smudge brush, Sephora’s collection of brushes and travel case are the perfect gift for the makeup-lover on your list.

2. Conair You Curl Curling Wand

Forget traditional curling irons. Conair’s You Curl Curling Wand gets just as hot as professional flat irons without the kinks of a traditional curling iron. This clamp-free wand is a must-have for women of all hair types.

3. Beauty Rules by Bobbi Brown

I’m not going to lie. I couldn’t have gotten through my awkward teenage years without the help of renowned makeup artist Bobbi Brown’s Teenage Beauty book. Her newest book, Beauty Rules, follows her philosophy of being yourself but prettier and more confident. Picking up where Teenage Beauty left off, this is a wonderful book for the young woman on your lost looking for some beauty inspiration.

4. Smashbox Artificial Light Luminizing Powder

Get the perfect holiday glow with Smashbox’s Artificial Light Luminizing Powder. You’re look won’t be complete this season without it!

5. Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet

Red. Velvet. Need I say more? Chanel’s Rouge Allure lipstick in Velvet is the season’s sexiest lip color. Whether you’re going comfy casual or dressed to impress this Christmas, a dash of Chanel’s Rouge Allure will perfect any holiday look.

6. Glo Minerals Shimmer Dust

You can never have too much shimmer during the holidays. And Glo Minerals Shimmer Dust packs just the right amount of shimmer for the face, body and hair. Available in Glisten Gold and Sleigh Bell Silver, this Shimmer Dust is a coveted beauty product by celebrities and beauty mavens alike.
