2018 Ultimate Beauty Gift Guide

I love doing posts like these because that means I can pretend to go shopping and then make a list of everything I like! Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?  Well I want to help you out and offer some suggestions for the beauty lover in your life.  Below are some suggestions for the ultimate beauty gift guide for every woman in your life.

I’m like a kid in a candy store when I step into a cosmetics store.  I could spend hours checking everything out and it only intensifies during the holiday season.  All the cosmetic companies bust out there shiny, sparkling eyeshadow palettes, gift sets and items that they only feature once a year.

With all of these options in the beauty industry and especially at this time of year, it is overwhelming.  If you are like most people, you have beauty/make-up lovers in your family and friends circle.  Below are my recommendations for beauty lovers and hopefully this will help you with your Christmas list.

Ultimate Beauty Gift Guide

Palettes & Gift Sets

I thought I would highlight palettes and gift sets because you get more bang for your buck with them and they’re great for traveling and gift giving.


Contour + Highlighter

Smashbox Holidaze Contour SetSmashbox Holidaze Contour + Spotlight Palette:  If you know that woman who loves to contour and highlight, this is the palette for her.  There are 3 matte contour and highlight shades and 6 complimentary spotlight highlighter shades.  Beautiful packaging for the holidays.

Eye & Face

Ulta 3 Sided Eye + Face Palette:  This would make a great gift for the beginner beauty; someone who is just starting their make-up collection or someone who likes to travel and doesn’t want to bring their whole make-up collection.  It comes with 21 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, 2 highlighters and 2 bronzers.  Perfect!

Also check out my review on the Too Faced Limited Edition Beauty Daydreamer Collection, which also makes a great gift for a make-up enthusiast!

Gift Sets
