Best gifts for the beauty lover. I’m definitely a makeup lover and buying a new lipstick gives me a little thrill, but honestly, I’ve never been one to love getting it as a gift. For one, I like to pick it out by myself and I’m one of those fickle people who buys items like that on a whim. That being said, however, there are lots of beauty gifts that I would love to receive! They are things that I probably covet but would never buy for myself.
BEST MAKEUP GIFTS FOR THE BEAUTY LOVER
I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t love a gorgeous, photo-filled coffee table book. The thing is that we rarely buy them for ourselves. All of these books are eye-catching enough to leave out on a table, but also informative and inspirational and what could be better than that when we are on the cusp of starting a new year?
Like I said, I generally prefer to buy makeup myself, but then again there are those items that I secretly want but probably wouldn’t buy. They are a little bit more special and will really show your loved one just how much you care.
There’s a pampering kit from Kiehl’s that will be a wonderful gift for any stressed out woman in your life. I’ve also included a neutral makeup palette from Bobbi Brown that would be perfect for any avid traveler. There’s a luxurious Christian Louboutin that any woman would love to have on her makeup stand, as well as lipsticks by MAC and Urban Decay that are sure to excite. These are high quality products that will fit any skin tone and that she will treasure (and more importantly, use) for month to come.
Walk into any drugstore and you have so many perfumes you won’t know what to choose from. These are the ‘designer’ brands. They are brands that most women wear and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. I, however, prefer to have a more exclusive perfume, one that’s made with higher quality ingredients (they don’t make me sneeze and the scent stays on longer) and one that isn’t necessarily everywhere.
I’ve chosen a range of perfumes that I like, some are spicier and more intense, others lighter and more feminine. Whichever you choose, remember that it’s all about making the wearer feel like a million dollars.
Sometimes you have that special someone on your list that you just want to spoil and sometimes money is no object.
For the woman who loves art as much as she loves beauty, why not choose the art box from Revive. Not only does it contain high end creams, but it also comes with a hand selected photograph by celebrated actor Joel Grey. There’s also the gift set from genius makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin that has a full selection of makeup along with a customized bag and his bestselling makeup book.
Not sure which perfume she’ll love? Why not get her Frederic Malle’s exclusive limited edition box of 20, 10ml sized perfumes. This way she’ll have one for every mood.
