I️’ve always been a beauty product junkie and love trying new makeup, skincare, etc., but sometimes I️ find it hard to splurge on the pricier items on a regular basis. Fortunately, many of these things last for a while, so they’re well worth the investment. I️ often include them on my birthday and Christmas wishlists, since it’s harder for me to splurge on myself! 😉 I️ thought I️’d put together a little beauty gift guide if you’re looking for ideas for yourself, your mom/MIL or a good friend this holiday season!
My Beauty Gift Guide Favorites

Becca Undereye Primer | This stuff works miracles! It brightens and wakes up your eyes first thing in the AM before you put on your makeup.
Tarte Shape Tape | I️ put this concealer over top of the Becca Eye Primer and it really hides my dark circles (because, mom life). It is by far the best covering concealer I️’ve tried!
Benefit Roller Lash | I️ always tell myself the drugstore mascaras work just as well, but when I️ open a fresh tube of this Roller Lash, I️’m reminded that they don’t come close to being as good! This gives my lashes so much length and they don’t clump together.
Bare Minerals Loose Powder Foundation | I️’ve been using this for over 10 years, it’s that good. I️ can’t handle cream foundation on my skin – it’s too heavy and causes breakouts. The Bare Minerals powder has great coverage but doesn’t clog my pores and isn’t cakey on my skin.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask | I️ got a sample jar in a Sephora order last year and I️’ve been hooked ever since! My lips tend to get super dry in the colder months and this keeps them smooth. I️ use it day and night.
I️sle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops | I️’m a self tanning junkie too (I️ finally realized tanning beds were bad news in college), and I️’ve tried so many different products over the years. I️ love these drops, since you can add a few to your lotion or face moisturizer for a natural-looking glow.
St. Tropez Self Tan Express Bronzing Mousse | I️ like to use a self-tanning mousse once a week to get a deeper glow. This St. Tropez Express Mousse is my favorite for a natural tan and doesn’t have that orange-y look that some self-tanning products have.
Buxom Plumping Lip Gloss | Remember when we could actually wear lip gloss and people could see it? Maybe one day we’ll be able to do it again! Ha. Either way, I️ love this gloss and how it makes my lips look.
LORAC Unzipped Eyeshadow Palette | This palette is by far my favorite, as the shadow blends well on my lids compared to some others. The warm neutrals are my favorite and look nice with any outfit!
Moroccanoil Hair Treatment | I️’ve been using this for many years and love how it smooths my flyaway hairs. I️’ve tried others and keep going back to this one, it’s worth the price!
Olaplex No. 4 Shampoo & No. 5 Conditioner | I️ just recently switched to Olaplex shampoo and conditioner a few months ago from Living Proof Perfect Hair Day and I️ like it better! Both brands are great, but my hair feels so soft and so clean after using the Olaplex set.
Beautycounter Counter+ Charcoal Mask | I️’ve tried numerous charcoal masks and this one is my favorite! You can visibly see the mask working on your skin as it clears out your pores and it really helps keep breakouts away.
Beautycounter Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel | I️ swear by this stuff! Not only does it help prevent breakouts, but it keeps my skin smooth and not flaky, even in the cold months. My friend, Elizabeth is a Beautycounter rep and she is a great resource if you have questions!
