It’s that time of year again, with the holidays rapidly approaching, that we start making our holiday gift lists, and maybe even adding them to our own wish lists. Getting something special for everyone on your list may seem like a daunting task, but we hope that our 2022 gift guides help you find the perfect present for everyone. We are starting with our makeup gift guide for the makeup lover in your life.
One way to reduce the stress of the holidays is by being organized, and completing your task lists early. The more time you save means more time for holiday fun. There are now holiday apps to get your gift-giving organized and even holiday apps to get you in the holiday spirit. This leaves you with more time to enjoy holiday baking, hosting a holiday baking night, decorating, or watching Hallmark Christmas movies and playing Hallmark Christmas Movie Bingo (click/tap here for a free printable bingo card). A fan favourite!
This makeup gift guide has options at a variety of price points and some items can be grouped together in a basket, given on their own, or even added to a stocking. Also, there are many ideas if you aren’t familiar with someone’s makeup preferences, but you know that they enjoy makeup, no matter if it is a fresh no-makeup look or full-on glam.
Makeup Gift Guide 2022
SEPHORA COLLECTION Wishing You Advent Calendar: This might look like an advent calendar, but it’s so much more. Anyone would love to receive this, as a holiday gift, as it has everything in it. The Sephora Collection is a great line with awesome products. By giving someone this gift, you are giving them the chance to sample, and try new products. Some of the products include Mini Big By Definition Defining & Volumizing Mascara, Mini Eyeliner Pencil, 2 Eyeshadows, a Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick, a Mini Lip Liner, a Mini Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator Moisturizer, a Cherry Lip Mask, a Watermelon Clean Face Mask, a Caffeine Clean Eye Mask, a Makeup sponge, a Hair tie, a Mini gua sha tool, and more.
Too Faced Christmas Bake Shoppe Makeup Set: The set contains 3 palettes in Ginger Snap, Chocolate Chip, Sugar Cookie and a Better Than Sex Mascara. This is a “set of three Christmas cookie-themed eye and face palettes that smell as good as they look.” You could even break the sets up, and gift one palette to three different people, if you are doing a gift swap night, with a limit- or maybe even keep your favourite palette for yourself.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Wishing You Blockbuster Multi-Use Makeup Palette: This is one hot item, that goes fast-so order early. Perfect for someone just getting into makeup or for someone who doesn’t like to have a bunch of palettes to sift through to find the one colour they want. This has virtually everything in it, as it comes with “88 shades of powders and creams in various finishes (matte, shimmer, pearl), so you can create an infinite variety of looks with colours ranging from nude to bold. These highlighters, blushes, bronzers, eyeshadows, eyeliners, brow powders, and lip glosses can be used over and over to highlight your face, eyes, and lips.” This is the ultimate all-in-one gift set.
Makeup Brushes BS-MALL Premium Synthetic Foundation Powder Concealers Eye Shadows Makeup 14 Pcs Brush Set (A-Rose Golden): No one can ever have enough makeup brushes. Brushes are the workhorse of our makeup routines, but they rarely get replaced. This is the perfect gift to give anyone who loves makeup, as they probably wouldn’t buy this for themselves.
Makeup Mirror Vanity Mirror with Lights: With a makeup mirror like this one, anyone can achieve their makeup looks flawlessly. This has a “dual power supply; makeup mirror with lights powered by USB charging cable or 4xAAA batteries” which makes it easy to travel with. The mirror also has “2X,3X,10X magnification modes; lighted makeup mirror has 3 panels magnifying and wide-angle viewing.” The magnifying and adjustable angles can help with eyebrow grooming and makeup applications.
Urban Decay Naked Mini Eyeshadow Palette Holiday Set – Includes 3 Mini Palettes: Half Baked, Sin & Foxy – 18 Richly Pigmented & Ultra Blendable Shades – Up to 12 Hour Wear – Perfect for Travel: Mini shadow pallets are a great way to enjoy different colour stories, and gifting these little palettes makes it easier for someone to travel with them. You could also break these up, and put them in different stockings, or add just one palette to a gift, or gift basket.
MAC Cosmetics Velvet Teddy’s Party Crew Vault: Want to give the perfect throwback lip look? Then you need to gift this “limited-edition five-piece lip kit featuring the bestselling Velvet Teddy lipstick shade.” Anyone who loves lipstick will love this gift set. Also, depending on who you are gifting it to, you may be reuniting them with an old favourite.
Billion Dollar Brows Universal Eyebrow Pencil, (Universal Brow Shaping Kit): This kit is worth gifting just for the universal eyebrow pencil- which I first received in my Summer FabFitFun box and I haven’t looked back. The kit has everything you need for grooming flawless brows, it includes straight edge, stainless steel scissors, a professional-grade tweezer, their patented eyebrow shaping tool, and the Universal Brow Pencil. This is a great gift to give to someone who is meticulous about their brows. Plus, you don’t have to guess their brow colour.
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Glow Kit: This is the highlight gift to give. With these four colours, everyone should be able to use at least three of them. And who doesn’t want to glow?
Lay-n-Go Cosmo Drawstring Makeup Organizer Cosmetic & Toiletry Bag: Staying organized either at home or for travel is important. Being able to lay out all your makeup, so you can see it without making a mess is important. This makeup bag keeps you organized and allows you to quickly pack your makeup back up, so it will save you time and space. Plus, you’re less likely to leave anything behind.
Our makeup gift guide has something for everyone on your list, who loves makeup, and hopefully will make holiday gifting a little easier.
Taking time to buy a gift is a way to show people how much they mean to you. If you are really stumped, you can always give them a gift card to their favourite store or beauty retailer/department store. It may seem a little less personal, but if you pair it up with a smaller gift item- it is the best of both worlds.
