Holiday Beauty Gift Guide - Her

Gift giving season is here so I thought it would be a great time to do a "Holiday Beauty Gift Guide". Whether you are looking for items to put on your wish list or you need a last minute gift idea for a women in your life, here are some of my recommendations. Some of the items I have tried and some are items that I have come across and think can make great gifts for anybody whether you love beauty items or not! \

1. Sigma Most Wanted Brush Set - $73.00
For me, Sigma brushes are a must in any beauty collection and this brush set is a great starter kit for those who are new to the brand.  The set includes fan favorites like their F80 Flat Kabuki, E40 Tapered Blending, E25 Blending, E30 Pencil, and F35 Tapered Highlighter.  Sigma brushes are well worth the money as they last through all the make-up applications and cleanings.  I have some of their brushes for a couple of years now and they really don't have signs of aging.

2. Sigma Spa Express Brush Cleaning Glove - $25.00
Cleaning make-up brushes can be a pain but Sigma has made this task easier with their cleaning gloves and mats.  They have a variety to choose from but I think their Express Cleaning Glove is the best. It's small so it's not as bulky as the full glove but you still get the different textures to clean your brushes.  I feel like this would make brush cleaning easier than what it can be and I actually put this on my own Christmas list this year!

3. Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette - $46.00
The Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette has to be one of the most versatile and complete palettes released this year.  With the colors being matte and neutrals, there are so many options and there's no wasted colors.  This palette has quickly become my "go-to" palette and I think it's a great palette for someone who is completely confident with make-up or someone who is just getting started. 

4. Laura Mercier La Petite Souffles Body Creme Collection - $60.00
The winter can be a brutal time for the skin so this collection can make a great gift during the holidays.  The Souffle Body Cremes (love the name!) by Laura Mercier are whipped body lotions that give you complete hydration. The La Petite collection offers six travel jars of the Souffle Body Cremes in the scents Fresh Fig, Ambre Vanilla, Creme de Pistache, Almond Coconut Milk, Creme Brulee, and Tarte au Citron.  The price of this is alittle on the high size but it's nice that you can try six 2 oz jars for the price of a 12 oz jar.

I have yet to try the Souffle Body Cremes but they are definitely on my "need to try" list for beauty. From the reviews I have read, they seem like they are worth the money which doesn't surprised me because Laura Mercier is a great brand.

5. Olivia Palermo x Ciaté London The Fashion Edit Nail Set - $30.00
Ciate and Olivia Palermo created this four piece nail set with colors inspired by the runway.  You get a bright red (Hutch), burgundy (Napa Valley), blue (Brooklyn), and a dusty pink (Sundays). I love little nail sets like this that you can get a places like Sephora and Ulta. It really gives you a chance to try different brands without committing to a full size bottle.

I hope this gift guide will help if you have any last minute gifts to buy for the women in your life.  Stay tuned my Holiday Gift Guide for Him, beauty edition, will be up tomorrow!
