Holiday Beauty Gift Guide – All Things Pretty

December 17th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The last holiday beauty gift guide is all things beauty.  I’ve broken it down into a few categories and it starts with makeup products.  I’ve been speaking for several weeks about holiday beauty, but these are ones I haven’t gotten to till now.

With a variety of prices, looking gorgeous was never so easy.

For luxury, the Guerlain Vol de Nuit Powder is the ultimate way to shine and shimmer.   You may think it is a perfume, and although it is scented with Guerlain Vol de Nuit scent, it is a shimmery powder that you can give your body that sexy glow.  $87

Julep The Girlfriend’s Essential Nail Vernis Gift Set includes the two most popular Julep shades in Jennifer and Catherine along with the Essential Cuticle Oil.  $28

Laura Mercier Twilight Nail Lacquer – Step away from the traditional red with the deep violet shimmery shade.  Fun and quickly becoming a classic all in one.  $18

Put all your makeup in one place with Tarte Puttin’ on the Glitz Clutch and Color Collection.  This cute silver clutch contains beauty to go on the inside.  Three interchangeable color palettes with a mirror and pockets for credit cards and a spot for the gloss and you are sure to look beautiful all night.   The palettes range from sultry, sophisticated and earthy. $48

Mark Glitz & Gloss Mini Purse and Go  $14 gets you this cute little holiday-inspired clutch with 4 mini lip glosses.  From clear to deep tones there is a lip gloss in there to fit every beauty look.

Head-to-Toe-Skintastic!  Getting your skin and hair prepped before putting on makeup and going out is top priority.  Here are some of my favorites for the holidays.

Votre Vu It Kit is $86, but has $143 worth of product inside.  Included is the delicious SnapDragon Beauty Beverage full of goodness and tasty too (wonderful if you have a winter cold too), the Duette hand lotion and lip balm in one – brilliant idea and the Tout le Monde eye gelée for those party-tired eyes, and its all encased in a tote.

Venus Embrace Girl to Goddess Essential Kit comes in a fun printed zip bag and includes a Venus razor, shaving cream and Secret deodorant.  Now those are essentials every girl can use for less than $15.

A perfect stocking stuffer is the holiday-exclusive Shiseido Honey Cake bars of soap.  At only $7.50 each these are a cult classic since 1956!  The French-milled soaps with honey give you silky-soft skin.  They are available in either the red or green package.

Becca & Mars Winter Ginger 2-Piece Hand Candy Sugar Scrub Set.  Keep your hands in tip-top shape with Winter Night and Lemon Ginger Hand Candies scrubs.  Believe me, your hands will thank you.

What can I say, I love, love, love the Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare line and especially the Cleanse & Polish Hot Cleanser. This comes in a holiday limited edition size for $32.50 and includes a must-have muslin cloth.

Who doesn’t carry a L’Occitane hand cream in their handbag?  Really?  You don’t?  Well, you should.  And with this Hand Cream Bouquet gift set of 6 scented hand creams, you can give one or two as stocking stuffers and keep the rest to yourself.   Your desk drawer or handbag will never be without again.  $50

During the holiday season all the busy parties, shopping and extra things we do can take a toll on the skin.   Be sure to give your face a mask treatment, and this award winning Guinot Hydra Sensitive Face Mask is just the ticket.  Protect your skin from winter’s irritations and stress factors of the season with vitamin E, Sweet Almond Oil, chamomile extract, oak and Epaline and Centella extract protect and replenish your skin.  $39 available at spas and online.

Hair needs some extra lovin’ this season too and Leonor Greyl has this hair set for $107.25 (25% off).  It includes a nourishing shampoo, a conditioning treatment scented with Indian Jasmine Flower and silicone free anti-frizz styling cream.  Made with natural ingredients that your hair will love.

Hydra Mar is an anti-aging and antioxidant line of body products that are paraben-free and enriched with vitamins, and sea minerals. There is a body scrub, body wash and body lotion that will leave your skin feeling silky from head to toe and smelling fresh and lovely too.

Kate Somerville Glow in the New Year kit for $95 includes my favorite face exfoliant – ExfoliKate and Tanning Towelettes.  Your skin will look fresh and healthy when attending all those holiday parties.
