Best Beauty Gifts: Holiday Gift Guide 2016

Shopping for the beauty lover in your life can be tough: chances are, she’s already picked up that latest must-have item! I’ve pulled together a list of must-have beauty gifts that she might not think to buy herself. It shouldn’t shock you that I have one of each of my own!


Tarte Tartlette In Bloom Palette, $54, is a palette that can easily go from everyday to New Years Eve glam. Packed with 12 gorgeously pigmented shades, this is the perfct palette for anyone on your list!

Benefit Cheekathon Blush & Bronzer Palette, $75 is like a greatest hits set of her favourite Benefit face powders. Silky, softly scented and beautifully pigmented, this all-in-one set will be her everyday go-to (it’s mine!).

Lise Watier Arabesque Powder Brush, $32, is a can’t-resist vanity favourite for the beauty lover in your life. She may never use this teddy bear-soft brush, but she’ll love how it looks on her Instagram feed.

Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque, $117 will get her on that masking trend in the most luxurious way. Perfect for any skin type, this mask is like a hangover cure for her face and gives an instant beauty boost.

Atelier Cologne – Collection – Cedre Atlas , $130 is a beautiful, unisex, earthy, woody scent. Melding into the skin with notes of Sicilian lemon and Moroccan Atlas Cedarwood, it’s unexpected.

Fresh Skincare Treasures, $90, can be the start of a beautiful new skincare routine. Packed full of favourites from the cult beauty brand, she’s sure to find her new go-to.

Inkbox tattoo, starting at $18 USD, is a happy medium when you love the look of a tattoo but aren’t ready for the commitment. While you can’t simply wipe it off at the end of the day – this organic tattoo lasts 2 weeks! – it lets you experiment without the ouch. Bonus: the truly artistic can draw on their own custom tattoo with the freehand ink!

Burt’s Bees Mani Pedi Kit, $19.99, will keep her hands and toes in tip-top-shape, just in time for that beach vacation! This kit is especially lovely for the DIY type or that person who lives to maintain their impeccable mani/pedi.

Which of these items is on your wishlist? I have just *one* more holiday guide for you this season, so keep an eye out for that later this week! Happy (last-minute) shopping xo
