The Best Beauty Gift For LIPS

For the Beauty Pro: Buxom Leave Your Mark Full-on Lip Polish & Lip Cream Set ($59): Buxom makes some of the best lip products out there, so this set is a must-have if you’re a lip color devotee. The fun colors in this set (that purple!) are great for holiday parties, just sayin’.
The Best Beauty Gift For CHEEKS
For the Beauty Newbie: Bobbi Brown Blush in Pale Pink ($28): This universally flattering blush will give you the healthy pop of color your skin needs this time of year. A little goes a long way, so this one will last awhile.
For the Beauty Pro: NARS Steven Klein Despair Cheek Palette ($65): This palette has it all: four pretty shades of high-quality blush, a legit brush and a cute compact. It’s limited edition, so be sure to snatch one up for the collector in your life.
The Best Beauty Gift For BROWS
For the Beauty Newbie: Glossier Boy Brow ($16): This creamy pomade is a great beginner’s brow product because it gives you enough pigment to fill in your brows but is natural looking, making it hard to overdo it. They’ll also stay in place all day thanks to the wax.
For the Beauty Pro: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pro Palette ($88): Eyebrow people, this palette is for you. Flawlessly fill in brows of any color with this 11-shade palette that will leave you with a very strong brow game.
The Best Beauty Gift For NAILS
For the Beauty Newbie: Essie Gel Setter ($10): Use this magical top coat to transform any of your normal nail polish shades into a long-wearing gel formula that won’t budge — even after you tear through all those Christmas presents.
For the Beauty Pro: Ciaté Geltox Starter Kit ($99): Why go to the salon when you can give yourself a pro mani in the comfort of your own cozy home? This kit has everything you need to get a gel manicure — LED lamp included — and the formulas don’t contain parabens, sulfates or phthalates.
The Best Beauty Gift For SKIN
For the Beauty Newbie: Dr. Jart+ Water Replenishment Cotton Sheet Mask ($8): These super hydrating masks come ready to put on your face, so they’re a great gift option for skincare newbies who need a quick, easy dose of moisture. Winter skin blues are no match for the replenishing formula.
For the Beauty Pro: skinnyskinny d/s Organic Skin Serum ($76): This powerful organic serum is one of the best out there (seriously, it’s my absolute fave) because of its light-feeling but heavily moisturizing qualities that won’t clog your pores. Slather this stuff on day and night and you’ll notice super smooth, hydrated skin in no time.
The Best Beauty Gift For HAIR
For the Beauty Newbie: Vive Blowout Subscription (from $65/month): There’s nothing better than having someone else do your hair for you, especially if the whole blowout thing still feels a little intimidating to you as a beauty beginner. This rad service is like Netflix for blowouts, so you don’t have to stress about your locks looking on point.
For the Beauty Pro: Kardashian Beauty 3-in-1 Ceramic Hairstyling Iron ($82): Be prepared to show off your hair skills with this iron that lets you create bouncy curls, loose waves or straight-as-a-board hairstyles. The ceramic plates are also infused with black seed oil, so your hair will be super shiny when you’re done!
