Beauty Gift Guide | 25 Beauty Gift Ideas | Christmas 2017



Christmas is almost upon us. Now is the time a lot of people start thinking about gifts. Sometimes you just can't seem to think of the right gift. Today I bring you a Beauty themed gift guide with items from under $15 up to $35 for the beauty lover in your life!




GIFTS $15 AND UNDER

Elf Cosmetics


elf is a great company and all of their products are $15 and under! Most are under $10. Some speciality items and sets are over $15 but all of the single range items are $15 or under. On their website, they have free shipping over $25 and have free shipping on any order flash sales!


$1 to $15











Colourpop Cosmetics - $4 to $8


ColourPop is amazing! So many bloggers talk about them! Everything in the single range is $4-$8 and the palettes and sets are $16-$18. They have a huge range of colours in their eyeshadows and lip products!








Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette - $15


The worst thing about makeup is having to clean the brushes. It takes so long and when you just use your hands you are never sure if you are getting all the product and/or soap out of the brush. There are a bunch of brush cleansing palettes out there. I recommend the Real Techniques one because their products are always of amazing quality and you know this one will not fall apart.






Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

$6 - for a single

$10 - for two


I love these sponges so much! I haven't used a brush for foundation or concealer since I got my first one! I have bought a couple more since then. This is a great tool that I will never be able to live without again!






Real Techniques Core Collection - $12


2020 Update: They have discontinued this set. For similar brushes try the Flawless Base Set ($20)


These were the first Real Technique brushes I bought. I fell in love instantly. This set is such a great starter! I use the buffing brush for foundation, the contour brush for blush, the foundation brush for concealer and the detail brush to clean up edges. It's such a great set. Plus it comes with a case!




Real Techniques Powder Brush - $10

I adore this brush! It's so big and fluffy. It perfect for powder! Everyone I've ever know to try it has loved it!


Real Techniques Bold Metals 203 Tapped Shadow Brush - $13


2020 Update: They have discontinued this brush. For similar brushes try the Instpop Eye Duo ($9)


This is one of the bold metals collection. This line is so beautiful. They run a bit higher in price because they are of higher quality. They are super nice and insanely soft.





Sinful Colors Nail Color - $1.99 each


I discovered this nail colour brand in May and fell head over heels. It has an amazing formula and it's so affordable! It stays so much better than expensive polishes! I was amazing and now I'm addicted to buying them!


GIFTS $25 AND UNDER


Real Techniques Start Set - $16


2020 Update: Real Techniques discontinued this set. Try the Everyday Eye Essentials Set. ($20) It's basically this set and a couple more brushes too.


These eye brushes are so useful! This set contains 5 brushes. An angled brush great for brows, two amazing shadow brushes, one is packed and the other is fluffy and two little detail brushes that I use to add highlights and clean up edges. And just like the Core Collection, this set comes with a case!






Real Techniques Bold Metals 300 Tapered Blush Brush - $19

2020 Update: This brush is discontinued. They now make a pretty much identical brush, Cashmere Dreams Powder Brush ($13)


Another beautiful brush from the Bold Metals Collection. This is a fluffy blush brush that comes to a point. This one is especially pretty because the handle is rose gold. I honestly can't get over how soft these bold metals brushes are.




Real Techniques 100 Arched Powder Brush - $21

2020 Update: They discontinued this brush. Try the Light Layer Powder Brush ($9) for a similar shape and feel.


This brush is really fluffy. It is a rounded powder brush with flatter sides. It is great for face powder, bronzer, and blush!


Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks - $17


You can't go wrong with this lipstick! It's soft and rich! There are 135 shades and 7 finishes to choose from. It's one of the nicest wearing lipsticks I've ever used. I fancy the shades 714 and blackmail the most.

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick - $19

I love MAC retro matte lipsticks. The formula is great and the colours are beautiful! Retro matte means it is a truly matte finish. No shine at all. I recommend the shade, Ruby Woo.



GIFTS $35 AND UNDER


Urban Decay Original Naked Basics Palette - $29

This is the perfect matte nude palette. I use it with almost every look and I currently use it for my eyebrows. I take this little palette with me everywhere!


Smashbox Ablaze Cover Shot Palette - $29


This is a beautiful warm toned palette that is nice and compact so it can easily fit into your makeup bag. The shades in this palette suit all skin tones! This is a great little palette to keep in your makeup bag.




BONUS SPLURGE $40 to $65

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette - $54


This palette is gorgeous! It has been blowing up since its release this summer! And for good reason. Urban Decay makes such amazing quality shadows! This palette has beautiful warm tones and berries!



Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Palette - $45


This palette is just as the name would suggest, peachy toned mattes! This palette has been doing quite well as most all matte palettes are nude tones. This palette is beautiful and the shadows are soft and smooth.





The Urban Decay Naked Palettes - $45 Each


You also can go wrong with the classics. Now the LORAC palettes are very similar to the UD palettes. At this point, it is a preference of which shadows you like better. The UD palettes however only have 12 shadows and do not have the even matte to shimmer ratio that the LORAC palettes have.



Original Naked (Discontinued)


Naked 2


Naked 3










Personally, would love to get any of these products under the tree! These are great for any beauty lover in your life!
