HOLIDAY GIFTING: for the beauty gal in your life

It’s the last weekend before Christmas, and what better way to spend it than running a couple last minute errands. That’s what I thought, truth is, I shopped the below for myself (#shameless, so technically the tittle of this post should be “HAUL: a non related thread on long romantic walks through the drugstore’s make up alley” (ok, now I’m hesitating if that should be the tittle for this, right?! *stares into horizon while contemplating it, to change or not to change, that is the question*). I thought with the holiday season around the corner they’d make for nice ideas on what to gift the beauty lover in your circle, invisible friend gifts for her, stocking fillers et al.

We are all about that glow, ’bout that glow, no trouble













LAURA GELLER Highlighting Trio and Individual Highlighters & BENEFIT Dandelion Powder and Highlighting Stick



‘A woman needs ropes and ropes of Pearls’ Coco Chanel




So a little more on the affordable side than ropes and ropes of Pearls, but honestly just as beautiful, Physicians Formula  Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls, it’s my third time re-purchasing this, I love to dust it as highlight when it’s new and as the shimmer wears off (it does have an over layer of excess), as setting powder for an overall glowy and brozed complexion; plus the packaging is beautiful so it makes for a bougie looking present.



him: babe, send me nudes? 🙂





Maybelline Matte and Glossy Lipsticks



Age 18: Spends 2hs before leaving the house doing hair and make up

Age 25: Can I wear Dry Shampoo 4 days on a row?




Created by Ruth Crilly from AModelRecommends, this dry shampoo smells like a little piece of heaven, it claims to AND doesn’t leave a white cast in your hair, brunette babes you can thank me later




‘Is your muffin buttered?’

‘Ew, Jason why are you such a skeeze? You can go shave your back now’ 



Bath and Body Works cream and OM beauty serum, moisture moisture moisture, ho ho ho!



Let me guess, Rose Gold, right?





We all love Rosie Huntington Whiteley, her beauty collection is to die for, the packaging is bougieeee and her lipsticks creamy AF, her eyeshadow sticks super pigmented and long lasting. I included a nail polish I actually received recently as a gift because, despite wearing acrylic nails, I found the new concept from Sally Hansen to be quite cool, moroccan oil infused nail polish, I mean, if it’s good for body and hair…



All in one, easy peasy lemon squeezeeeeey





This Holiday palette by TanyaBurrCosmetics has become one of my absolute go to’s, the highlighters are gorgeous, so is the bronzer, and the eyeshadows super longwearing, also, can we appreciate the pre wrapped packaging, no wrapping you say? I’m in!






I hope this gifting guide will serve as a trigger for ideas on what to get ’em beauty obsessed ladies in your life; I think the packaging in all of these goodies is very pretty and girly and festive, *lustingggg.


Don’t forget the true gift of giving comes from the heart, and nothing will ever surpass a hug, a kiss and a smile.
