Beauty Tip Thursday-Holiday Glam Gift Guide

 

Now that the holidays are rapidly approaching, we thought that we would dedicate this week's tip to glamorous gift items for everyone on your list from our friends at Sephora!

1. Luxe fragrances.  Pick her favorite statement scents.  Some our new favorites are Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh, Michael Kors Very Hollywood, and Coach Poppy.  If you are unsure of what scent to buy, then consider checking out their Collector's  Edition Fragrance Sampler.  It features 10 fragrance mini-bottles as well as voucher for a full-size bottle that the recipient can turn in for their favorite scent.  The sampler is $75, but is valued at $175.

2. Essentials for Him. Must haves for the modern man.  Our all-time favorite is Kenneth Cole Black, for Men, but if your guy is picky when it comes to scents (or maybe you are), then there are lots of options.  Just like their Collector's Edition Fragrance Sampler for women, Sephora also offers a Deluxe Fragrance Sampler Set for men.  For $50, you will receive 14 samples in a designer gift box, as well as voucher for a full-size product to be redeemed at a later date.

 

3. Big Deals.  Beauty items that are beyond worthy!  One of the best values at Sephora is their amazing gift sets, where you can get some of their best -selling products (and your favorites) bundled with new products that you haven't had a chance to try.  One of favorites is the The Bestsellers, which retails for  $75 and features 10 of Sephora's best-selling products, including 6 full-size items.  It includes everything from makeup to moisturizer to fragrance and more!  Our other favorites are Lashstash, Give Me Some Lip & Glitz & Glam, all for obvious reasons and all for under $50!

4. Palettes of Plenty. Color me pretty.  While some our most favorite palettes are from BH Cosmetics, Sephora offers plenty of wonderful palettes from Smashbox, Urban Decay, Sephora Collection, Bare Escentuals and many more!  One our favorites is the Urban Decay Naked Palette, which features 12 eyeshadows, an eyeshadow brush and Primer Potion for $48.

Just because it is the holidays doesn't mean you have to spend tons of money on gifts.  One our favorite things to do for our family and friends is make homemade gifts with a little flair,  Add a nice hair flower or small lip gloss to plate of cookies or your favorite drink mix.  Always remember to look in the travel size area at your favorite store for cute, mini items to get the most bang for your buck!

We hope that these gift ideas help inspire you this holiday season and we look forward to posting more tips next year.  Also, be on the lookout for a new feature in 2012...Wedding Wednesday, where we will feature one of our recent weddings every Wednesday!

We wish everyone a very Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!
