I’m not sure if there is anything harder to gift than beauty products. Nor anything that I love more. But with everyone’s skin and personal preferences a lot of times a trip to Sephora can seem a bit daunting this time of year. (No matter how familiar you are with it.)
Young to aging, sensitive to luxury, I created this gift guide for those who are beauty obsessed and maybe a little hesitant to gift beauty.
Skylar perfume set – Skylar is a perfume company I quickly fell for (and worked on their newest scent release) this year! I’m v v picky about my perfumes, which is why you hear me rarely mention them. Luckily, Skylar scents are light + refreshing and pass my ultra picky smell.
Even better is Skylar’s holiday gifts this Christmas. They send your loved one’s samples + a gift card for their own full sized bottle!
**I love mixing the perfumes and my current favorite mix is Willow + Capri**
Quartz roller – a tool that’s often overlooked on tight budgets, but beyond helpful for those who
KEH French Pin – full disclosure this rose gold pin has a bit of a learning curve to it. But once you get the hang of it your five-minute morning routine just got a lot more glam.
R+Co Acid Wash – I think we can all agree that the MVP of the 2000’s is dry shampoo. But with that said we all could use a little refreshing after some inevitable product buildup.
Whenever I’ve tested the limits of dry shampoo (a couple times over) I’ll reach for this handy acid wash. It cuts through the grime to give back soft, smooth and shiny hair. Even better that it’s perfectly safe with color treated hair.
Tarte In Bloom Palette – this little superstar of a palette has left me with some seriously gorgeous lids and plenty of compliments lately. It is perfectly balanced (in my opinion) of matte + glimmering shades.
And truthfully took me a year to justify into my budget, making it the perfect present to spoil your beauty obsessed friend with.
