Holiday Beauty Gift For Beginners!

Beauty lovers always love getting makeup and skincare as gifts. It’s in our nature…we see beauty products and we want to get our hands on them. What’s more exciting than unwrapping a gift to find a fresh, new product to devour? Even people who aren’t crazy about makeup love to receive a treat in the beauty realm, such as perfume or skincare treatments.

Read on for my guide to gifting beauty for the holidays! Just a few ideas to help you consider all the options out there…

LiveGlam Subscription 

Beauty subscriptions are the greatest gift ever. You don’t just get one lot of product-induced joy, you get it month after month! Sign up a beauty-loving friend to LiveGlam and choose from a monthly, 6-month, or annual brush, lipstick, or eyeshadow palette subscription. If they’re a lippie addict, go for the Lipstick Club, KissMe, or if they like to play with eye looks, go for the Eyeshadow Club, ShadowMe. If they want to quickly build their brush collection, the Brush Club, MorpheMe, is the way to go! Each club is only $19.99 a month with free shipping in the U.S. Learn more here!

Luxe skincare

Do you have friends who aren’t so much into color cosmetics, but they’re completely crazy for skincare? I do, (those friends somehow always look so clean, polished and young…hmmm). For these kinds of gift receivers, go all out and find a new serum, oil, cream, or even a decadent treatment mask you know they don’t already have.

Or, you may have friends or family who doesn’t buy themselves luxe skincare (some people are very virtuous and hate treating themselves, I wish I was like those people). For these loved ones, treat them to a skincare set like this one from Tatcha ($60). It’s high-end, high-quality and comes in gorgeous packaging. This kind of gift is a thoughtful way to spoil someone special who deserves some luxury in their busy lives.

Treatments

For any tired, hard-working, completely badass friends in your life, force them into a much-deserved pamper session with a treatment gift card. Facials, massages, or even a full spa day are always amazing to receive. You could give them a gift card to a trusted local spa, and tell them to choose any treatment they desire. Sometimes the best gifts are the gifts of time and relaxation.

Perfumes

Now, this one is a little trickier. Perfumes are super personal. What smells heavenly to you might smell repugnant to someone else. However, if your friends are anything like mine, they’ll have little perfume samples all through their handbags. They probably always have their eye on a scent they can’t quite justify buying…so here’s where you come in. There’s something so sweet and lovely about it, like receiving a box of chocolates in beauty form. The trick is to subtly extract their perfume wants from them without letting the secret out of the bag.

Multitasking Beauty Products

Multi-tasking products

Receiving beauty products is great, but receiving beauty products which you can use in a multitude of ways is even better. Products which can be used on the eyes, lips, and cheeks are always incredibly handy. You don’t want to give someone a product which is gorgeous but will spend most of its time cluttering their makeup drawer. Give them something they can throw in their bag or keep front and center on their vanity, they’ll thank you every time they reach for that handy little thing!

I love these options for all-over face and eyes:

Benefit Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain ($30) great for minimal beauty gals

Stila Convertible Color ($25) the handiest cream product for brightening eyes and cheeks any time

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look Eyeshadow and Face Palette ($75) a luxe palette for an entire face and eye look on the go

Conclusion

Whichever beauty gift you buy for your loved ones, they will adore it for the thought and effort. If you’re stuck on which products to buy, remember there’s always a beauty subscription, skincare or luxe treatments too. Happy shopping!
