Gifts for the Beauty Lover

I’m back today with a new holiday gift guide that focuses on items for the beauty lover in your life! In my family, I am definitely the beauty lover of the group! I absolutely love testing out new products and finding favorites!  The items I have rounded up for this gift guide are items that I personally use on a daily basis and have found work well. These tried-and-true beauty items would make great gifts for a beauty lover in your life. Please let me know if you have any questions about any of these products, I would be more than happy to answer!
Nume Curling Wand | I will be the first to admit that I am still working on my curling wand technique! Believe me, some days my hair turns out crazy (my own fault!) But I can say without a doubt that this is m favorite curling wand that I have owned. The one I got has 3 wands in 1, so I can get different curls based on which wand I use! You can get any of the classic wands for only $30 with code OHJOY.
Jo Malone Fragrance Set | I’m sure you’ve heard all the rage about Jo Malone products, but if you aren’t sure which fragrance you like best, this set is the way to go, so that can you test them all out! 
Beauty Blender | In the past year this has definitely become a “must have” in my cosmetic bag. It helps blend my foundation (and concealer) so well. It’s very simple to use, just wet it before applying your foundation, and mine has lasted quite a while!
Clarisonic Mia 2 | I received a Clarisonic from my grandmother for Christmas about three or four years ago and have used mine almost daily ever since. I pair mine with philosophy face wash and use the sensitive skin brush on mine. It helps prevent break outs, provides a deep clean for my face, and leaves my skin feeling amazing afterwards.
Philosophy Fresh Cream Body Wash | This is another item that my grandmother introduced me to and I haven’t looked back since! This body wash is great for sensitive skin and smells amazing. It also comes in different scents, as well!
Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray | I began using makeup setting spray about six months ago for photo shoots and ended up loving it so much that I wear it daily to allow my makeup to last throughout the day. After trying a few different brands, the Urban Decay spray is still a favorite.
Perfume | I almost always get perfume for Christmas. My signature scent is Versace Bright Crystal because it smells clean without being overpowering and the scent lasts all day long.
Becca Glow On the Go Set | I absolutely swear by my Becca illuminator and this gift set incudles it plus the spotlight wand!
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette | This eyeshadow palette takes the best “basic” colors from the other Naked palettes and combines them into this smaller, less expensive one. These colors generally look great on everyone and this makes a wonderful gift!
Sigma Brush Cleaning Glove | This kit is the easiest (and most efficient way) to clean your makeup brushes.
It! Cosmetics Brush Set | It! Cosmetics makes some of my favorite makeup brushes ever. They are very high quality and feel great on your face! 
P.S. I wanted to share a new H&M opening tomorrow for my NC readers! H&M will be hosting a Grand Opening tomorrow at it’s newest location in Valley Hills Mall in Hickory, NC at 12pm! The Grand Opening is always a good time (I’ve hosted a few-read about them here) with a DJ and a lot of grand opening deals that you won’t want to miss! I’m currently loving this sweater, this faux fur vest, and this dress for the holiday season!
