GIFT GUIDE FOR BEAUTY PRESENTS
These are great gift for anyone who enjoys or loves beauty products! Here are my recommendations for beauty gifts!
Cosmetics Organizers and Cases
I received this cosmetics organizer for Christmas last year from my sister-in-law, Chea! It’s awesome having it on my bathroom counter. Check it out this cosmetics organizer on Amazon. It’s also available here, and it’s less expensive.
My husband gave me the gift of a new handbag for my birthday this year and said I could choose it whenever I wanted. It took quite a few months to find the handbag I was looking for before finding this super-cute blush pink crossbody bag. This adorable black Ted Baker Makeup Bag that matches was irresistible, and I ended up getting both. The makeup bag is a convenient size to put inside a medium or large handbag. It’s perfect for anyone who retouches their makeup on-the-go.
This MAC Cosmetics Travel Case is much more than just a travel makeup case. It works great for travel, storing your makeup at home, or transporting makeup if you like to apply your makeup when you’re out for the day.
This Better Beauty Case Deluxe Set also has four velvet pouches. Makeup, skincare products, toiletries, and jewelry can be stored in the pouches. It can be used at home, on the go, or for traveling. The pouches can be attached for hanging storage or they can be individually removed to put one in a purse. The rectangular design is great for traveling because it will fit better in suitcases than a round or odd-shaped travel bag.
This Better Beauty Set comes with two beauty cases and one jewelry case. Again, these work well for home use, on the go, or for traveling. The rectangular cases can easily be packed in suitcases.
Makeup and Makeup Tools
Great makeup is essential to a pretty makeup look. Using the right makeup tools is also key for good, long-lasting makeup application.
Younique Makeup is a fabulous gift for anyone who wears any makeup. Some of my favorite Younique makeup products that would be great gifts: Pouty Lip Liner, Loveable Lip Gloss, Precarious Eye Liner, Eye Shadow Palette 1, Eye Shadow Palette 2, or Eye Shadow Palette 3.
Dr. Perricone The Art of Beauty Set is lovely makeup to wear on its own or as a base to a more dramatic makeup look. Dr. Perricone makeup is one of the most natural ingredient makeups available, and it has ingredients in the makeup to help improve skin, too.
Dr. Perricone Perfectly Polished Set is similar to the makeup set above with the addition of lipstick, mascara, and moisturizer. This set does not include the highlighter.
Dr. Perricone The Vault Collection has everything for a beautiful and very natural makeup look. A fabulous and ultimate makeup gift to give.
If you know someone who loves lipstick, this is a great present for them. It goes on liquid and dries to a matte lipstick. It lasts for hours! Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Lovely is a a pretty pinkish nude shade.
This is another beautiful lipstick color. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Dusty Rose is a nude mauve with a matte finish.
This Younique Eye Makeup Brush Set comes with 7 different eye makeup brushes on 5 brush handles. These brushes make applying eye makeup so much easier.
The Younique Face Makeup Brush Set has 7 great face makeup brushes on 6 brush handles. For a limited time only, get a bonus brush case.
This is the Younique Complete Makeup Brush Set that I have and love. I use these makeup brushes every day I wear makeup, which is usually every day. This is the ultimate makeup brush set, and it comes with a cool brush case.
Makeup blenders are a must for every makeup kit. Blending buds are what I use to apply and blend my concealer and foundation. You can see how my makeup looks after using blending buds in my fashion posts. A makeup blender also uses less makeup. So, makeup foundation and concealer should last longer when using a makeup blender.
This is so smart. The Blotterazzi Pro is a washable and reusable alternative to blotting papers. No more having to buy blotting papers or losing your makeup because it’s rubbed away on a paper towel you tried to blot with. Oil that appears throughout the day can be taken care of with the blotterazzi without affecting makeup. It even has its own carrying case.
The Beauty Blender 5-Pc. Pro on the Go is the ultimate beauty blender pack! It has three beauty blenders, including a small beauty blender pro and a beauty blender pro. It also has a blotterazzi pro and a black mini blendercleanser solid pro.
Makeup Brush Cleaning
Makeup brushes need to be cleaned at least once a week. It can be a fairly long process without the right tools. Here are some fantastic tools to make makeup brush cleaning easier and maybe even a fun process. Find out why, how often is good to clean makeup brushes, and How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes.
This is just amazing! If you’ve cleaned makeup brushes before, you know it can take a long time for the makeup brushes to dry. Then, what if they don’t reshape to how they were before? Plus, you have a towel full of makeup brushes laid out to dry until they are completely dry, which takes up extra counter space. This Dry’n Shape Tower Eye & Face Set holds up to 24 eye makeup brushes and 20 face makeup brushes. It’s the perfect way to dry and reshape brushes, and it can even have its own place on the counter for regular brush cleaning. If you always do your makeup at home, it could even double as your makeup brush holder if you wash your brushes after each use.
This is the deluxe version of the tower above. The Dry’n Shape Tower Full Set is two towers in one, and it holds up to 92 brushes. It hardly takes up more space because the main difference is the height.
I have a Brushegg, and it gets the makeup out of my makeup brushes much faster than my hand did. It’s simple, cheap, portable, and doesn’t take up much space.
This is a more advanced version to the Brushegg. This Sigma Beauty Power Pair Duo comes with a kabuki makeup brush and an express brush-cleaning glove. This has 7 textures to clean makeup brushes with. This is very portable and also easy to store.
This is the ultimate version to the express brush cleaning glove. The Sigma Beauty 2X Brush Cleaning Glove has 8 different textures to clean makeup brushes with. If you don’t know how much space someone has or how big their sink is, I recommend the brush cleaning gloves.
This is another option if you don’t know how much space someone has or how big their sink is. The Sigma Beauty Express Brush Cleaning Mat is a smaller version to the one below, and it has 7 different textures to clean makeup brushes with. The nice thing with a mat is that you can use both hands to hold brushes, or it can be hands-free cleaning (although, of course, the makeup brushes being cleaned have to be held). The mat can be folded for easy storage.
This is the regular full-size version to the express version above. If you’re getting this for someone or yourself, make sure it will fit the sink. If you can measure the sink to ensure it will fit. This Sigma Beauty Brush Cleaning Mat has 7 different textures to clean makeup brushes with. The mat can be folded for easy storage.
The Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare All-In-One Facial Cleanser with Toner is my favorite cleanser.
These incredible skincare devices below make sure all the makeup and impurities are removed when cleansing and also make skincare products put on after cleansing more effective.
This Foreo Luna Play is an inexpensive, small version of the Foreo. It will still help cleansing be more effective even though it’s not the full version.
The Foreo Iris Eye Massager cleanses and massages eye products into the skin around the eyes. It helps reduce puffiness, dark circles, and crows feet.
This is the best of Foreo. This is a Christmas present from my husband this year. I’d been wanting one most of this year! I’ve already starting using it (with the blessing from my husband, of course!) and I’m absolutely loving it! I can really see and feel the difference. The Foreo Luna 2 Spa Indulgences Collection is an awesome gift to give. It works for all skin types. I love that it’s gentle enough for my more sensitive skin to use twice a day, you can use the anti-aging mode to massage in skincare products to make them more effective, it doesn’t need any replacement brush heads since it’s silicone, and it can be cleaned easily. The Foreo charge lasts for 7 months and is an easy size to travel with. This is a perfect gift for someone who travels a lot.
This Clarisonic Mia 2 is another fantastic cleaning device. It removed dirt, oil, and makeup 6x better than hands. It has two speeds.
The Clarisonic Mia FIT also cleans 6x better than hands and has two speeds. This size is great for traveling and is an especially great Clarisonic for someone who travels often.
The Clarisonic Smart Profile is the ultimate of the Clarisonics. It has 4 speeds and cleans 11x better than hands. It can be used with different brush heads for full body and even give feet an exfoliation.
Nail Polish Organizers
This is a cute and fun Nail Polish Organizer.
If you know someone who loves nail polish and has a lot of nail polishes, this SOHO Nail Stadium is a great gift to display and organize their polishes.
Essie Gel Couture are my favorite nail polishes right now. They are no-light gel and remove just like regular polish. They are easy to apply, dry quickly, and last much longer than normal polish. It’s a two step process: Color followed by Top Coat.
This Essie Gel Couture Set has 8 color sets to choose from and includes the top coat in each set. You save more with this set, but if you prefer more color options you can create your own set below.
Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish Step 1 (Color) means you can choose which color you’d like to give. Just make sure to give the Step 2 (Top Coat) below, too.
Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish Step 2 (Top Coat) provides a shiny look and is essential to help the color above (Step 1) last longer.

BEST BEAUTY GIFTS
Each of the items above are items I use personally and I have bought myself, are beauty gifts I’ve loved receiving, or are items I would love to get!
I absolutely love receiving beauty gifts! As a beauty lover, it is so much fun to try new beauty products, gadgets, and more, even if I already have something similar. That’s one thing to remember when giving beauty gifts: if someone loves beauty products such as makeup, the philosophy is often “you can never have too much makeup”. 🙂
