Wow! I can’t believe we’re on the final day of the 12 Days of Christmsa Gift Guides series! It was hard work putting all of these guides together back to back, but I’m so proud that I pushed myself. It was a tall order, but the point is that I fulfilled it, just for you guys. I hope you all got some great gift ideas from the posts.
Today on Day 12, I’ll be sharing some awesome beauty gifts for mom! Who says you can only celebrate the most special lady in your life only once a year?
With this Christmas gift guide for mom, this will be your chance to one up on all the gifts everyone handed her on Mother’s Day. Now you can tell your older brother Joe he can take his boring little 5 in 1 coffee maker down to the Goodwill, because you’ve got something up your sleeve that’ll knock her socks off!
Let’s get started!
Makeup Gifts for Mom
Yves Saint Laurent is pure luxury. Their makeup line has so many impressive selections, incluing their lipsticks. This nude shade is universally flattering for just about any skin tone you can think of, and comes with a lovely nude lip pencil. The pencil liner is great for a plumping effect, and sets the foundation for the lipstick to glide on smoothly, although in my opinion, either works just wonderfully fine on its own.
This under-eye setting powder was specifically formulated too blur away the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, blend into the skin effortlessly, and give a soft, radiant glow that makes you look like you just woke up from a beauty nap!
This mascara from Benefit has been a popular favorite for many years, because it really is that good. It lengthens short lashes like a dream, and elongates longer or curlier lashes easily. It’s perfect for people with more mature eyes due to the way that it opens up and brightens the eyes.
This concealer can cover your deepest darkest secrets! It’s thick enough to do the job, but doesn’t get cakey unless you pack on too much. A little goes a long way with this.
The Nars sheer glow is a beautiful foundation that feels weightless on the skin, covers imperfections and blends seamlessly. Don’t be fooled by “sheer”, this has a medium, buidable coverage that will make your skin glowing and radiant all day long. It’s suitable for all skin types, including combination/oily skin.
You can’t possibly show me noe person on Earth who doesn’t look absolutely stunning in a red lip. This set from MAC is everything you need for the perfect pretty red pout. This set contains a bullet lipstick in shade “MAC Red”, retro liquid lipcolor in color “Feels So Grand” and lip pencil in “Ruby Woo”. I adore MAC lip products because they have endless colors and finishes, and they just about never disappoint me.
Tom Ford may be one of the most luxurious makeup lines in the business. The beauty about his makeup is that you certainly get what you pay for: high quality! This palette features two shades of cream blush that are gorgeous to wear on bare skin, and blend seamlessly with face makeup. The nude shade is perfect for low maintenance looks and daytime wear, and acts almost as a subtle highlighter. The pop of pink shade will be gorgeous on those who want even more color and vibrancy.
