It’s already that time of year where we’re starting our Christmas shopping! A fail-proof gift to get a loved one is usually an awesome beauty product. As beauty professionals we see and test out a whole lot of product. So here it is, your ultimate guide to beauty gifting this season!
MaskerAide Face Masks – serious skincare for the most fabulous of lifestyles. These facial sheet masks are made from a thin fibrous material and perfectly shaped to contour to your face. Soaked in a highly concentrated serum, it's infused with vitamins and nutrients. They are super hydrating, provide instant brightening, are eco-friendly and are very affordable. Give the Gift of glow in this limited edition holiday pack containing one of each of the 6 different kinds of face masks. ($42 CDN at Schulz Make-up & Beauty Studio).
Bobbi Brown Universal Lip Palette – One of Sephora’s exclusive limited edition Holiday 2015 make-up items is the Bobbi Brown Holiday 2015 Lip Palette. This winning gift offers a mix of 12 nude, bright, and bold shades that can be worn alone, mixed, or layered to create virtually any look. The artist-inspired palette is super handy and allows you to carry all the colours you need when you’re on the go. Know a lady who loves her lippies? This is perfect for her! ($70 CDN at Sephora)
Fresh: Sugar Lip Party Favors - A fool-proof gift that any woman can use are these Fresh essentials. The Sugar Lip Polish is a must have for kissable lips, especially in the harsh winter; it gently exfoliates and conditions, while the lip treatments deliver nourishment and a subtle colour. These 5 items - which range in colour from bright to bold, are amazing as they glide on easily and will match any skin tone. It’s tempting not to scoop one up for yourself at the same time! ($45 CDN at Sephora)
Make Up Forever: Artist Palette Volume 1 (Nudes ) - This convenient eye-shadow palette has 9 must-have Artist Shadow formulas in neutral tones. Personally we think these colours are to die for – highly pigmented, the perfect amount of shimmer, and highly-blendable. You can never go wrong with neutral tones as well! We recommend this palette over the more colourful Volume 2 palette, since it's also great for those new to makeup. Whether you’re creating a chic, natural look or a smoky-bronzed look, this palette will be your go-to and suitable for all skin tones. ($49 CDN at Sephora)
Deborah Lippman: Dressed to the Nines’ Nail Colour Collection – Create the perfect holiday manicure with this set of Deborah Lippman nail polishes. With 9 gorgeous shades in this limited edition collection, you’ll always have a shade to match each season. Stay polished all year round, whether it’s a girls night out in the spring or a romantic winter date night. ($63 CDN Nordstrom)
Tom Ford Lips & Boys Set – Ok this set may not be as realistic of a holiday gift but we had to include this epic lipstick collection called Lips & Boys. With over 10 colour families, this 50-shade set comes with a hefty price tag of $1,950 USD. But, can we just admire the beauty that is Tom Ford lipsticks below? For the record you can totally buy just one of the lipsticks at ($55 at Holts), or divide the mini lipsticks among friends and family for birthdays and holidays year-round.
*For those GTA girls who’ve ever dreamed about having Drake on your lips.. Tom Ford released a “Drake” shade as a part of the collection 😉
Last but not least, a gift certificate for a beauty service at Schulz Make-up & Beauty Studio makes for the perfect customizable gift.
