Holiday Gift Guide: The Beauty Addict
Hello again! I mentioned last week that we would be featuring a holiday gift guide every week. Last week was crafters, this week we’ll do a gift guide for your friends that are interested in beauty and love all things makeup and skincare.
The above are my favorite products that are totally worth it and I think your recipients would love.
Elizabeth & James Dry Shampoo
This is amazing. Not only does it make your hair smell delicious, but it eliminates all the oils from my hair. I don’t wash my hair every day and this is my lifesaver. It actually makes my hair look and feel clean. It’s crazy.
If you’re wondering why I don’t wash my hair daily, it’s because I dont want daily shampooing to strip my hair and scalp from its natural oils. You have to train your hair to not be washed daily, but now I can go 4-5 day without washing and my hair has seriously never been healthier even though I process and bleach my hair snd use styling products.
This mirror is perfect for anyone who loves doing makeup. The lights act as a perfect lighting for your makeup and the mirror is slightly magnified to really see the detail work. I would also check your local Marshall’s, sometimes I see them there and you can save some cash.
If you have a friend who’s really into beauty and makeup then they no doubt would have heard of Jaclyn Hill. She teamed up with Morphe Brushes and created this bomb palette. It is filled with the perfect colors and you can even pick it up in certain Ulta’s !
Now this is tricky, because you really have to be careful with foundations. It all depends on skin type, color, tone, intent of coverage and probably so much more that I don’t know about.
This YSL foundation is the most highly rated foundation on Sephora.com. So, it must be pretty good. The reason people like it is because it has full coverage, feels light, and can be worn on dry and oily skin. It leaves a matte effect, so if you’re dry like me I would just make sure to moisturize or wear a hydrating primer.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir
I am going to be honest…this is stupid expensive. But I absolutely love it. It has a fresh minty scent and just makes my face feel refreshed. It also helps my makeup penetrate and not look so cakey or heavy on my face. The spray allows my makeup to look more like my skin rather than makeup.
I also use this after the gym to calm down my beat red tomato face (#cardio).
Nars Liquid Lipstick
This is the BEST. I want every color of these. They last forever, easy to apply and feel like im wearing nothing. HIGHLY recommend.
