Today I have some information that you need if you’re holiday shopping for a beauty addict! It can be very hard to know what to get the girl who already has every single palette, nail polish and skin care tool out there. Her bathroom already looks like Sephora, right?
Luckily, Celeb Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis, happens to also spend some time working at Sephora. And she knows what you should buy! She shared her picks! I’ve added a little commentary of my own below each of Brandy’s picks.
“Being a Beauty Studio Coordinator At Sephora I see so many great holiday items hitting the shelves. Clients are coming in looking for that perfect item that their love one’s would want to unwrap on Christmas Day. But what do you get the girl who has everything at Sephora this Christmas. Here are my TOP 5 beauty items that I think they would enjoy.”
MAKEUP: Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eye Shadow Palette
This palette was just released, and it really is amazing! It is very well pigmented, the colors blend smoothly, and there are neutrals and bright shades that work for pretty much everyone. I’ll be reviewing it very soon, but in the meantime I can’t seem to stop using it!
SKIN: Sunday Riley Power Couple Duo: Total Transformation Kit
This set has sold out online, so you’ll need to hunt it down in stores. It has 2 nightly skin treatments that are about to achieve cult favorite status in the beauty world, for good reason! They have lactic acid and retinoids to help increase skin turnover. Skin is smoother, skin tone is more even, and both aging and acne will improve.
PERFUME: Sephora Favorite Liquid Luxuries Perfume Sampler
There are a few versions of the perfume sets, but this is the best one! There are 15 testers. Once you’ve picked your favorite there’s a coupon to get a full sized bottle.
HAIR: Drybar Peace On Earth Good Hair To All
This set is a steal if you need a new blow dryer! It has an amazing blow dryer, a brush, clips, 2 hair products to help you achieve a great blow out at home, and an amazing shower cap that helps you keep that style going for days.
NAILS: Nails Inc Snowglobe
I have this polish, I love that you can customize how many gold flakes you add to your look! I can’t seem to resist a little gold accent nail for pretty much every single manicure, as seen in this picture.
