7 perfect gifts for the beauty guru


It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is already upon us! 2020 has definitely been a wild year, but I am so excited for the cheer and festivities that come along with the holidays. Year after year I find myself stocking up on beauty products from Sephora for all of the ladies in my life because they are truly a no fail gift option. I like to give gifts that you can use on a daily basis, and makeup fits the bill! I also love how when you’re gifted beauty items it opens the door to trying products that you typically might not buy for yourself!



Today I’ve put together a list of 7 beauty products that would be the perfect gift for your mom, your sister, your best friend or really any of your girlfriends!

Sephora just started early access to their Holiday Savings Event to Rogue Members on Friday and right now is the perfect time to make your list, check it twice and get ahead for the holiday season! Incase you’re unsure of when you get shop, here is a savings event breakdown for all beauty insiders…

  • Rogue Members: 20% OFF from 10/30 – 11/9
  • VIB Members: 15% OFF from 11/3 – 11/9
  • Insiders: 10% OFF from 11/5 – 11/9

All you have to do is use the code HOLIDAYFUN when you shop online OR in stores AND bonus, if you’re not a Beauty Insider, you can sign up any time! It is seriously one of the best deals of the entire year and I encourage everyone to sign up!


7 perfect gifts for the beauty guru

biossance uplifted and bright set

This little biossance set is perfect for the girlfriend in your life who values skincare! With retinol serum, rose oil and repair cream all in one box, you really get the best of both worlds. I have used and LOVE all 3 of these products and also love that biossance is cruelty-free and uses clean ingredients! All 3 of these products will help brighten your skin and leave you feeling glowy and vibrant. This could also be the perfect stocking stuffer!

laneige lip sleeping mask

Ya’ll have seen me post about this mask before but it really has changed the game for my lips! This is another great stocking stuffer idea since it’s so small and compact, but it lasts a surprisingly long time for it’s size. It’s a product that I use every single night and now I can’t live without it! Makes your lips feel so soft and so luxurious! It also comes in a few different flavors – mint chocolate might have to be my pick for the holiday season!


charlotte tilbury airbrush flawless finish setting powder

This setting powder is a great makeup gift because you don’t necessarily have to know a person’s exact shade, and it’s a product EVERY makeup routine could benefit from! It really gives your face a flawless finish and also helps your foundation stay on longer! This setting powder is an under $50 find but it’s such a high quality product. It’s a staple in my makeup bag, and after using it I’m sure it’ll become your girlfriend’s new favorite too!

charlotte tilbury bejewelled instant eyeshadow palette

This is a stunning eye shadow palette for anyone on your list! Love the mix of shimmer with neutrals, and the colors could really be worn year round! I also like how it mixes purples and pinks for the more adventurous makeup wearer, but also has classic colors like gold and taupe for everyday wear.

charlotte tilbury mini filmstar bronze and glow contour duo

This mini set would make a great stocking stuffer and is one of my fave makeup products for highlight and contour! It’s the perfect shade of rosy pink and subtle gold, and looks beautiful on every skin tone. Could also be a fun option for a secret santa gift exchange with your girlfriends! Less than $30 but a little goes a long way!




olaplex holiday hair fix kit

this set is an amazing value – $60 for all 4 products and olaplex is one of my favorite hair brands of all time! These hair products are especially amazing for anyone who has color treated or damaged hair or wants to grow their hair out. I also love using this in the winter because my hair naturally dries out with the cooler weather. I’ve gotten a few of my friends and family members hooked on olaplex and they all rave about it! Definitely a great option for any hair type or texture.

charlotte tilbury pillow talk lip secrets set

One of my all time fave pink + neutral lip colors in an amazing set! This color is the most universally flattering shade of pink and would make such a great gift no matter your coloring or skin tone. It includes matte lipstick, mini lip liner, lip gloss and collagen gloss and it’s under $50! You really can’t go wrong adding this to your gift list!



What’s your favorite makeup item that you’ve ever been gifted? There are so many great makeup items that I’ve added to my daily routine after they were given to me as a gift! I love it. Thanks for reading you guys! Happy (early) holiday shopping!
