The Gift of Beauty

The Gift of Beauty

As the holiday season quickly approaches we all scratch our heads, wondering what to get our loved ones. Life today is so hectic and we all have busy schedules, especially once the holidays kick in! To make life a little easier I’ve come up with some great holiday gift ideas for the special females in your lives!

Every woman loves to feel special, even the ones that don’t like to admit it! Whether it’s your bestie, mom, sister, or significant other, you can do that for her by giving the gift of beauty this year! What better gift than to pamper the special ladies in your life?

Skin care, fragrance, cosmetics

Skin care, fragrance, cosmetics are all great gift ideas! What about gifting her a special service, like a facial, massage, makeup lesson, or spray tan to give her a beautiful youthful glow? Busy women today don’t usually think about doing these things for themselves, which is why the gift of beauty is always such a welcome gift! I offer makeup lessons, applications for special events, AND mobile spray tanning! I’m offering holiday package deals through the New Year! For more info contact me at

Glam Stocking Stuffers

Glam stocking stuffers are also fun! Why not get her the hottest metallic nail colors by OPI or some trendy lip colors by MAC Cosmetics? Another great stocking stuffer is Motives Fiber Lash Mascara, the one-step fiber mascara that lengthens, volumizes but doesn’t flake! The GORGEOUS gold tube makes it a fabulous gift!

Brush Sets

Brush sets are a wonderful gift idea for the holidays! What female doesn’t love a brand new complete set of makeup brushes to give herself that professional touch in her daily makeup application? carries amazing brushes at very economical prices! A great set of brushes is the 504 10-piece Studio Set W/Case by Crown Brushes. This set, in particular, has brushes that are most commonly used in most makeup applications and are a mix of natural hair and synthetic brushes! They are high quality brushes, easy to care for, and they store well in their own case!


Highlighters are still in high demand, especially this holiday season! One of MY all time FAVORITES is Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit! It comes with four shimmer finishing powders that highlight and contour, giving you the perfect glow!

Skin care lines

Amore Pacific is one of my favorite skin care lines. Their product line is high end and can be expensive. But, during the holiday season, they have amazing gift sets that give you the opportunity to try an array of products at a fraction of the cost! Treat your  loved ones! Treat yourself!

Ornaments with Products Inside

Some cosmetic and fragrance product lines make limited edition holiday ornaments with their products in them, ready to be hung on the tree! Merle Norman, Tarte, and IT Cosmetics all have fun ornaments with cosmetics inside and will add extra glam to any girl’s tree!

Makeup Items

There are so many great makeup items you can give her this season, as most cosmetic product lines create gift set items this time of year! I love Too Faced and Benefits product lines for their whimsical themes, but practical makeup sets that come in compacts with eyeshadows, lip, and cheek colors! These sets are great for travel!

Well, there you have it! Treat the beauty in your life to some gift items that will make her look and feel great! Happy Holidays!
