I can’t believe how quickly time is flying! In only a week, I’ll be home in Baltimore celebrating Thanksgiving with the fam. With Black Friday on the heels of Thanksgiving, I wanted to share a few more gift ideas before the hustle and bustle begins, so I present my second holiday gift guide of the season tailored for Beauty Queens. I pushed up the timeline for this post because I’m giving away #16 to to one lucky winner, but the giveaway ends tonight at 7:59pm EST. See this post for details on how to enter.
As a side note, I had so much fun putting this gift guide together! I love finding and sharing items that are cruelty-free/vegan, but may or may not be marketed as such, and this beauty theme is perfect for that. I hope you enjoy reading it/exploring the items as much as I enjoyed making it.
ONE. EYESHADOW PALETTE
An eyeshadow palette is an amazing gift for any beauty queen. I love this tartelette™ palette because mixes mattes and micro shimmers in universally flattering shades. Perfect for everyday use.
TWO. MATTE BRONZER
I’ve been raving about this Too Faced Matte Bronzer since I bought my first compact years ago. Turns out, Allure agrees and made it a Best of Beauty award winner.
THREE. PHOENIX FACIAL OIL
This is the face oil you never knew you always needed. Trust me on this one.
FOUR. PACIFICA NAIL POLISH
These nail polishes are not only quick drying and full color, but they are free of the toxic chemicals you’d normally find in nail polish. I love this neutral blue holiday set.
FIVE. CHARCOAL FACE/BODY SOAP BAR
Don’t think I can say it better than this reviewer: “The actual soap lasts a long time and lathers really well. Helps keep my skin clear and reduces my red acne scars. This is my holy grail when it comes to face soaps and I tell all of my friends and family about it.”
SIX. CHEEK STAIN
Tarte does cheek stains SO WELL. It’s brush-free application, so you just smile, dot and blend it – so easy!
SEVEN. MICRONEEDLING TOOL SET
So, I’ve never tried a microneedling but I’ve always been curious! This limited-edition set definitely has my eye.
EIGHT. TATTOO LINER
Kat Von D is the QUEEN when it comes to eyeliner. Her tattoo liner makes doing cat eyes almost effortless.
NINE. AIR CONTROL™ HAIRSPRAY
Three things you need to know: 1. its most amazing lightweight hair spray, 2. it’s cruelty-free, and 3. Aveda funds renewable wind energy to offset the Co2 associated with this product so it has a net-zero impact on the Earth’s climate.
TEN. T3 STYLING WAND
I’ve had this styling wand for years and love love love it. The interchangeable barrels make it so easy to switch up styles. Lately, I’ve been loving the tapered barrel to get loose beachy waves.
ELEVEN. COCONUT LIP SCRUB
This handcrafted, 100% natural coconut sugar lip scrub would make a perfect stocking stuffer!
TWELVE. SHOWER CAP & HAIR TOWEL SET
Obsessed with this shower cap and hair towel set! I’m such a sucker for palm leaves.
THIRTEEN. DEEP CLEANSING FACE WASH
This Pacifica Beauty Kale Detox Deep Cleansing Face Wash is super affordable and works wonders.
FOURTEEN. THERMAL PROTECTION SPRAY
One of the reasons I started this blog is because I showing amazing products that are also undercover cruelty-free and vegan, and Paul Mitchell Hot Off The Press heat protector is a prime example.
FIFTEEN. MONOGRAMMED CANVAS MAKE-UP BAG
Couldn’t make a beauty gift guide without an adorable make up bag, now could I? I love this one is from Tuckernuck.
SIXTEEN. MOTD ESSENTIAL BRUSH SET
If you’ve been following along you know I totally love this M.O.T.D. vegan make up brush set because the brushes are super soft, don’t shed at all, hypoallergenic, and anti-bacterial (unlike regular animal hair brushes). I’m also giving away a set to one lucky winner. See this post for details on how to enter.
