It’s that crazy time of year when we are all running around trying to find the perfect gift for the special people in our lives. Every beauty blog and youtube channel is pumping out their holiday gift guides and most of them seem to feature the newest holiday kits from all of the biggest brands. I wanted to do things a little bit differently and share my favourite holy grail products from Sephora that I think would make any makeup lover more than happy.
Marc Jacobs Style Eye Con No 7 Plush Eyeshadow Palette ($71) – The ultimate eyeshadow palette, 7 luxurious shadows in beautiful pigmented shades that are beyond buttery soft. The sleek packaging screams glamour and the product inside is worth every penny.
Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette ($34) – Every girl needs a set of basic eyeshadows that work with any look and any other palette. The Naked Basics collection is perfect for mixing and matching or you can use it alone to create a number of simple, matte looks.
Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow in Thunderstruck ($25) – The perfect multipurpose eyeshadow. The Metal Crush formula is gorgeously creamy and packed with pigment, Thunderstruck is a stunning metallic pearl that looks amazing all over the lid and as a highlight for the face.
Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($46) – Contouring, Highlighting and Strobing are all the rage right now and a good powder highlight is essential. Becca makes the best of the best and they have a shade for every skin tone.
Benefit Cosmetics Watts Up Cream to Powder Highlighter ($39) – I personally think it’s imperative to have both a powder and cream highlighter to use alone or combined for different occasions. Watts Up is a beautiful cream to powder formula with a stunning champagne glow.
Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12 Hr Blush in Exposed ($34) – The Amazonian Clay Blushes are some of the best on the market, they come in an array of intensely pigmented shades that can withstand a hurricane. Exposed is the perfect mauvey nude shade for day to day wear.
Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizers ($43) – An innovation in makeup primers, the Skin Equalizers combat every issue from hydration to colour correction and help extend the wear of your makeup.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks ($31) – The makeup world is obsessed with liquid lipsticks right now and the Stay All Day lipsticks from Stila are the best of the best. They are pigmented and full coverage while feeling weightless and comfortable.
NARS Audacious Lipsticks ($39) – For a lipstick lover there is nothing better than an Audacious lipstick, the luxurious packaging, bold colours and weightless feel make for an unstoppable formula.
I think that a beauty lover would be thrilled to receive any of these makeup gems. What is on your wishlist?
