Holiday Gift Guide | Beauty Buys

The holidays are always a fun time to shop for beauty products. Brands always come out with limited-edition products and there are tons of deals and opportunities to get free gifts with purchases. It’s also a great time to splurge on something you’ve been eyeing (#treatyoself) or snag an impressive deal for the makeup hoarder in your life. My favorite type of beauty gift to give is always a gift set. There are so many tempting ones out right now in every category from makeup to skincare to fragrance, plus the packaging is always really cute and festive 🙂

Beauty Holiday Gift Guide
Clinique Pop Party Gift Set

I love gift sets because you get a sampling of products– it’s a great opportunity to give someone the chance to test a few colors or types of products instead of just giving them one item in a large size. Gift sets are always discounted too so you get more bang for your buck.


Clinique Pop Party Gift Set

Clinique Pop Party Set $29.50 ($65 value)

When you purchase this limited-edition Clinique lipstick set you’ll also receive a free Clinique sample bag with a bunch of goodies including a mini cleansing balm, moisturizing gel, Chubby Stick balm and a mascara.


Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Fragance
Clarisonic Mia 1 Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush System

YSL Black Opium (shop the Holiday gift set here| Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb (shop the Holiday gift set here) | Clarisonic Mia 1, Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush System

Perfumes and fragrance gift sets make great holiday gifts! These are two of my favorites 🙂 And if you really want to impress the beauty addict in your life (and keep their skin looking fab) get them a Clarisonic. This little guy exfoliates and removes dirt and oil 6x better than if you washed your face with your hands!

Kusshi Makeup Bag & Organizer

I love anything that helps keep my makeup and toiletries organized when traveling. If you know a person that’s always on the go, consider surprising them with a new cosmetics bag and brush roll. I love this set from Kusshi— the compartments in this brush roll are all different widths so you can fit makeup brushes and products of all sizes.

Makeup makes great stocking stuffers! How cute are these two compact sets?


Last but not least: hair! I included a few products and gift sets from my favorite brands below.  If you’re not comfortable purchasing someone haircare, then I’d suggest going for a tool. Hair dryers and curling iron are things that people use for years and never think to replace. Surprise them with a new one under the tree 🙂
