If you ever need help with a gift for the ladies in your life, you can’t go wrong with makeup/skincare/hair products! Actually, you could even do a Sephora gift card and we would more than happy to go pick it all out ourselves, right ladies?
For those of you that like to give a little something, I have gone through all of my tried and true beauty must-haves and listed them here for you. There are so many more I could have added on here but I thought I would start with the basics and if you need any more ideas, I am here to help!
♥ Becca Highlighter – amazing non-yellow highlighter for the girl that just wants to shine without the gold look on her face!
♥ Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation– I love this foundation because it can be used for a more natural look to cover up anything (for me its redness) or you can build it up for a night out. It is definitely a cult favourite you have to try! Sephora has the best colour matching tool on their website to find which one is your match. I am shade 3N1 (Ivory Beige).
♥ Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick – if you haven’t tried her lipstick, you are missing out sista! Another cult favourite, especially in the colour ‘Pillow Talk.’ Its the perfect nude and seriously looks good on everyone!
♥ Better than Sex Mascara – I use this for everyday and I use Benefit They’re Real Mascara as a base and then the Too Faced as a top layer when I am going out. It makes them super long and voluminous if you layer them.
Tip: Don’t let the first layer dry before you put the second on or it doesn’t work as well!
♥ Beauty Blender – best makeup hack invented. Yes, it’s pricey! I have yet to find a better sponge blender and I have tried them all. If you take care of it, they will last you a good 6 months!
Tip: Buy the beauty blender cleanser and wash it once a week. Sponges grow bacteria easily, so it’s super important to do this for your skins health.
♥ Nars Blush – I love the shade ‘orgasm’ because it’s not too pink and not too red. It’s the perfect combination and has a bit of shimmer in it as well.
♥ Nars Bronzer – I have used this for years and it lasts a long time! My favourite shade is ‘laguna’ because it has a bit of a shimmer in it and adds the perfect sun kissed glow.
♥ All Nighter Setting Spray – This was a game changer for my wedding day! If I hadn’t used this, my makeup would have melted off my face before the ceremony even started. I spray this on once all of my face and eye makeup is done and before I put mascara on.
♥ Replica Scents – I bought one similar to this for my hubby last year for Christmas and to be honest, I stole one of them. These are so great for men and women and the perfect stocking stuffer!
♥ Tarte Eye shadow Palette – My favourite everyday colours are in this palette and you can use it all year long!
♥ Olaplex gift set – I have all of these individually. I use the shampoo and conditioner daily and the hair mask is THE best mask on the market, in my opinion. Definitely the perfect gift for any hard to buy for lady in your life.
♥ Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – if you are going to buy anything on this list, this is it! I have gotten everyone I know onto this mask. You think you don’t need a lip mask, think again! I promise you will love it. I put it on before I go to sleep and wake up with the softest lips around. It’s perfect for cracked dry lips in every season!
