I am so excited for this gift guide, you guys, mostly because I think there will be something for everyone here! There's a lot to cover, so let's get started straight away. I'll begin with the top left corner, and will work clockwise:
If you know of someone in your life who is either interested in getting into makeup, or, who is well-seasoned but could use some new brushes, look no further than the Zoeva Rose Gold Brush Set. It rings in at $86.00, which I'd say is pretty good value for money when you consider what you're getting - eight really solid, do-their-job-to-perfection brushes. If you want to add a makeup product with this brush set, I really recommend the Zoeva Caramel Melange palette! This palette has the most perfect-for-everyday neutral shade selection, including a few beautiful, festive shimmers.
Have a natural beauty lover friend or family member? Three really wonderful natural brands to check out are PYT Beauty, Burt's Bees, and RMS Beauty. What you should try from each brand: PYT - the No BS eyeshadow palette contains beautiful, wearable, blend-able shades that will have you covered from day to night, and their blushes add the prettiest fresh pops of color to cheeks (my favorite is the above shade, Head Rush); Burt's Bees - I am absolutely loving the brand's Liquid Lipsticks - they have more of a glossy finish, which I prefer to matte, they have really wonderful color payoff, and they never leave my lips feeling dry; RMS Beauty - this brand is perfect for someone who loves a good natural glow - their highlighters and lip shines are two of my all-time favorite products.
For the blush mavens out there, Glossier has a deal on their lovely Cloud Paints - you can get 2 shades for $30. This cream blush is perfect for any level makeup user; you really can't go wrong. They are super easy to apply, and blend out beautifully for a natural flushed look.
If you know someone who likes a bit more glam, please head over to Charlotte Tilbury, my personal favorite makeup brand! The best eye duo of life, in my opinion, is her Exaggereyes Palette + Rose Gold cream shadow. The combo is currently sold out on the website, but I am hoping she'll bring it back for holiday shopping (or, you can purchase separately). Another favorite product from the brand is definitely a luxe item - the Hollywood Flawless Filter. Again, this could be for anyone, in my opinion, who wants to add some natural glow to their makeup look.
For the lip obsessed, I have a few really gorgeous glosses, and a lipstick formula that won't let anyone down. The Kylie Cosmetics glosses come in a great variety of shades - from creams, to gorgeous fine shimmers. They are also super comfortable, non-sticky, and have incredible color payoff. A similar option is the Nars Full Vinyl Lip Color - really gorgeous shades (Conquest is above, a stunning bright pink), non-sticky, and long-wearing. As for lipsticks, how stunning is Pat McGrath's packaging?! All of her formulas are, in my opinion, really comfortable on lips, and have great wear-time. They are also so aesthetically pleasing, and I'm sure any beauty lover would appreciate having one of these beauties to open!
That's it for this gift guide, guys! I hope you're able to draw some inspiration from the above, and best of luck with your holiday shopping!
