The Gift of Beauty this Holiday

clarins the essentials palette

Honestly, the malls are a nightmare during the holiday season. Online shopping makes it easier for me to buy all my gifts, and with free shipping codes and special online-exclusive promotions, there’s no reason that shopping in-person is necessarily better.

If you’re still looking for the perfect gifts for those special people in your lives, check out these picks below. And if you’re already done, how about treating yourself after being so generous this year?

clarins the essentials palette review

Gifts are always a beautiful opportunity to encourage loved ones to explore their hobbies or experiment with new interests. An eyeshadow palette like the stunning Clarins The Essentials Eye Makeup Palette ($45 US) does both. The mix of classic nudes and more high-drama colors gives your recipient the chance to play with makeup in a sophisticated way.

The Essentials Eye Makeup Palette doesn’t feature shades that are too intense, instead focusing on the versatility of the colors, which can be layered and blended with ease. The shimmery hues clearly have a place for the holiday season, but by pairing them with the more neutral mattes, this palette can easily be worn year-round.

We all know how frequently and easily beauty and fashion collide. Nine times out of ten, your best friend that carries around a bag full of lip colors (for options!) is a fashionista too. Appeal to both her passions with the Thursday Friday Diamonds Here Pouchette ($35 US). It’ll be a welcome gift as a stylish makeup bag.

The above features a print that looks like the lust-worthy Chanel reissue 2.55 bag, but if your gift recipient is more trendy than classic, Thursday Friday also makes varying bags that features images similar to the Proenza Schouler PS1 bag.

To bring even more delight to your lucky loved one, stuff the makeup bag with festive goodies like candy canes and glitter polishes. Bonus! Take 30% off your order at Thursday Friday with code STYLE30.

For that Secret Santa gift or perfect stocking stuffer, the Philosophy Holiday Handbook Gift Set ($20 US) is a sure winner, featuring three deliciously scented and festive hand creams. The Tocca Meet the Girls Fragrance Collection ($62 US) is like the beauty version of a box of chocolates; let your recipient sample everything with this set of mini sprays. And just because, the NARS Beautiful Stranger Mini Nail Polish Coffret ($35 US) brings classic and bold, all beautiful, to the table.
