MAKEUP:

TARTE 9 WAYS TO SHINE CHEEK WARDROBE // This is such a steal. It’s 9 shades of blush and bronzer for $35. If you’ve been wanting to try out a blush or bronzer, this is your chance!

BEAUTY BLENDER DUPE // These are the closest dupe to a beauty blender. You get 5 for $9 compaired to $20 for one beauty blender.

TOO FACED BORN THIS WAY CONCEALER // This is like the shape tape by tarte but less drying and never cracks. I hate wearing face makeup but I love this stuff and it does a great job covering up any blemishes.

TARTE CREAMY MATTE LIP PAINT // This lip color goes on so smooth and it lasts forever. It’s not drying and it’s not sticky even though it’s liquid. My go-to lip for every single season is the color “tbt”, I am literally wearing it in almost every photoshoot I’ve done over the past two years.

LANCOME TRAVEL SIZE MASCARA PRIMER // This eyelash primer goes on before your mascara and makes your eyelashes look so long. It also helps your eyelashes not clump together once you’ve applied mascara.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS CLEAR BROW GEL // This is a high quality brow gel that keeps your brows smooth and in place throughout the day. You can use this on it’s own or with other brow products.

NARS LIPSTICK // This is a great matte color without drying out your lips. My go-to color for Fall and into Winter has been “banned red.”

TARTE “TOASTED” EYESHADOW PALETTE // This is my favorite go-to eye shadow palette. It is beautiful neutral palatte that you could easily use every day.

TOO FACED BETTER THAN SEX MASCARA TRAVEL SIZE ORNAMENT // This mascara is the best of the best. This cute gingerbread ornament makes it the perfect stocking stuffer.

URBAN DECAY GIFT SET // This includes their eyeshadow primer, all nighter setting spray, and perversion mascara. It’s a great price for the value.


HAIR:

GHD FLAT IRON STYLER // I have used a variety of straighteners and this is by far my favorite! You get what you pay for and it’s worth the cost.

WET BRUSH // I have naturally curly, tangly hair and this is the only brush I will ever use. It’s such a good price for the product.

NEXXUS DRY SHAMPOO // This is my favorite dry shampoo and it smells so good. I feel like the majority of dry shampoos that actually work smell awful. I use this literally every single night before I go to bed.

HAIR CRIMPER // This is coming back into style and I kind of love it. It’s an Amazon Best Seller! This is on my Christmas list this year!

KRISTIN ESS PURPLE SHAMPOO // This is salon quality for a much lower price. It brightens really well and very quickly (so be careful how long you leave it in your hair.)

ROLLED-EDGE ELASTICS // I am a scrunchie girl through and through but since I cut my hair short again, it’s been more difficult to not have them swallow my hair. So I started using these. They are super thin, don’t crease your hair, and they hold really well.


SKINCARE:

TULA ROSE GLOW AND GET IT, COOLING AND BRIGHTENING EYE BALM // a total game changer for no makeup days or a middle of the day pick me up for your face since you can apply it over makeup as well.

MARIO BADESCU FACIAL SPRAY TRAVEL SET // This gift set includes four of Mario Badescu’s facial sprays in the perfect size for travel. These could be a great stocking stuffer!

PEPPERMINT SUGAR SCRUB // Everyone needs a good sugar scrub to keep everything feeling smooth. This would be a great festive holiday gift or stocking stuffer.


MISC:

MAKEUP BRUSH CLEANING MAT (2 SET) // This is such a good deal for the price! This is on my list this year because I’m currently cleaning my brushes on a washcloth but this seems worth the $10 investment.

LANEIGE LIP SLEEPING MASK // This will become your best friend during the cold months. You put it on your lips before you go to bed, it’s keeps them hydrated throughout the night, and then you rub off the excess in the morning to remove your dry skin. Here is a gift set of 3 different “flavors” that would be a great stocking stuffer.

12 DAYS OF BATH GIFT SET // This gift seet includes everything you could ever need for a relxing bath. This would be the perfect gift for a friend, mom-to-be, or mother-in-law.

POO-POURRI // I love this stuff and they have so many different scents to choose from. They’d make the perfect stocking stuffer. They also have a holiday, Secret Santa scent if you want a more festive choice.

COOLING EYE PADS // This reusable cooling eye pad is perfect to refresh tired, puffy eyes. This would be a perfect stocking stuffer and it’s only $6.

SLIP ULTIMATE BEAUTY SLEEP COLLECTION // This is a high priced item but it includes a pure silk pillowcase, silk sleeping mask, and a variety of silk scrunchies which are great for your hair. This would be perfect for a new mom or your mother-in-law.
