Holiday Gift Guide: For the Makeup Geek

Merry Christmas everyone! In the makeup world, the holidays are an extra sparkly time, filled with limited edition and exclusive sets. I’ve spent quite a bit of time looking at Sephora and Ulta, and today, I’ll be sharing my favorites. 

I recently bought this palette, and I am OBSESSED! The colors are so pretty, the formula is easy to work with, and there are so many different looks you can do with it.

Stila liquid glitters always make for a perfect look. They can be played up, dressed down, or even used as highlighter or on lips. This set comes with three colors that work well with any look, during any time of year. (This set comes in several other color combos, and there is a larger set available too).

The second I saw this lip set, I knew I needed it. The colors can be used a lip colors or toppers, and are really shimmery. They apply almost like a foil, and look metallic, and are absolutely perfect for winter.

Lash lovers, rejoice! With all the essentials for the perfect lashes and eyeliner, this set is sure to create a great look for a party, a photoshoot, or even everyday!

This palette is totally sweet! Inspired by the classic holiday cookie, this eyeshadow set features warm toned and glittery shades. When paired with the matching liquid lipstick, you’ll have the perfect holiday look mastered!

If you want to gift brushes, this is the set to gift. Morphe brushes are soft, blend well, and last a long time. This set comes with a bunch of sizes and shapes, as well as a brush roll for easy organization and travel.

I got this palette for my birthday, and it is so perfect! The colors are gorgeous and extremely pigmented. If you want to gift and eyeshadow palette, this is definitely the one to gift. The variety of colors make it easy to create multiple looks, or a few classic looks for any occasion.

Did someone say sparkles? This highlighter palette definitely brings the glow. Anastasia is known for their highlighters, and this one does not disappoint. A more pink based version of their Sun Dipped highlighter palette, the colors can be applied thinly for a natural look, or layered for a total glow.

Your recipient’s heart will grow 3x bigger after getting this set! With a lip gloss and the perfect shades for the holiday, this is easily the most festive gift you could give a makeup lover for the holidays. Don’t want to gift eyeshadow? This set is part of a whole line, the other items being glittery eyeliners and fun face masks!

We may be celebrating Mickey, but this palette is the true original of makeup lines. The colors are classic and perfect for any occasion, the formulas are comparable to high-end lines, and the price tag is beyond believable (just $24 for 35 colors!). I gave this to my best friend last year with two eyeshadow brushes, and she freaked out. Most makeup lovers have it and want more, or are dying to have it, making it the perfect gift.

I hope you guys found the perfect makeup gift from my list! These items are some of my long-time personal favorites, others are new obsessions, and some are on my wish list! 

Happy Gifting!

Toni
