Gift Giving Ideas (Beauty) |December 3


Such a fun post to make: These are just some fun gift suggestions that would (in my mind) be sure winner for the beauty lover in your life or just a “from me to me” kind of present. I made a list that covers some budget friendly items and some luxury ones.

Cute Makeup Bag

If you are like me, you are running around with an old dirty makeup bag, full of high-end products (go figure). I really think that everybody would love a sturdy vinyl-type makeup bag. I love these two …

Makeup case

I got mine last year on sale at 50% off and I love it. When I go to Beard Man’s place, I always take my case that is already full of my essentials & I add my favourites of the moment. (BeardMan note: Even with a perfect case, she is still bringing her old decomposed bag, and occasionally she still needs to put some in my luggages! If, during your holiday shopping spree you find a carrying case large enough to attach to my car, let me know!)

Neutral Eyeshadow Palette (Matte)

My love of eyeshadows started when I purchased my very first high quality palette. You can never go wrong with any of these (HERE). Shimmery eyeshadows are easily dupable with drugstore’s brands but Matte on the other hands are more tricky.

Vanity Mirror

This is a must for every girl into makeup. What can I say, if it looks good when you see yourself 4X bigger, you know your makeup is on point. Regular mirror just doesn’t cut it. I bought mine at Costco (less than 20$CND).

Lash Curler

I know it’s kind of a weird gift but a very good eyelash curler is “lash” changing ! We always buy the one on sale at the drugstore and it’s ok but when you try a really good one, there is no coming back.

*Fancy* Lip Product


If you know the person well enough to be sure of the colours she prefers, a very well appreciated gift could be a fancy lip product.


Nars Blush Palette

This one is more specific, but I truly believe that every girl of any age would be ecstatic to receive this beauty. I for one is praying really hard. It’s such a great quality and the shades are in my opinion universally flattering to say the least. Available at Sephora

Makeup Organizer

I really started enjoying my makeup collection when I displayed my stash in the bathroom using those wonderful organizers. This is a must and it makes such a great gift. I bought all of mine at Winners (TJ Maxx or Marshalls) in the sale section, and BeardMan, tired of finding makeup items everywhere, bought a few just to make sure that I would declutter once in a while.


If it’s in your budget (or could be a collective family effort), a Clarisonic can be a problem skin girl BFF. This little gadget has made wonders on my skin. I won’t ever be without one. I had mine for more than 2 years and it still as good as new.

Makeup Brushes

You are only as good at putting makeup as the brushes you use. That being said, I don’t believe that you have to spend a fortune. Real Techniques & Bdellium Tools are among my favourites.

Holiday Sets (Sephora Favorites)

All in all, the Sephora Favorites are making great gifts. Who doesn’t like to receive a lot of different products to try !?!

Note: There is still a lot of these sets in-store !!!

I hope it gave you some ideas of bulletproof gift for the coming holidays 🎅🏻


Have a great day my beauties

  3. I want a train case!!! It’s been something I’ve eyed for years but I need to snag a deal like you did – otherwise they’re so pricey!
    Great list! 😀
    Also, is that supposed to be a representation of us at the end there? 😆
