Holiday Gift Guide 2018: For the Beauty Queen

We all have that person in our life whose impulsivity goes off the charts the moment they step into Sephora and can explain the benefit of retinol without missing a beat! These gift ideas are for that person. While it might seem like they have it all, a beauty queen ALWAYS has her eyes set on the new gold nugget that just hit the shelves!

If you’re curious about anything in regard to my beauty regimen [hair, skincare, etc.], head to the BEAUTY page here on the blog!

Scrunchies help protect your hair from breakage. While they may not hold your hair up super tight, I have noticed that I have less breakage and less split-ends since using these when I want my hair up around the house and at night. This brand Kitsch has a lot of other cute hair accessories.

While it’s a bit pricey, I can attest that it is the best hairdryer I have ever had. It dries my hair [without extensions] in five minutes! That’s insane considering my hair holds A LOT of water.

This is the new contour brush I’ve ever using. I like this one because the bristles are shorter and allows for more control but it’s still plush enough to blend your contour line beautifully!

These microfiber hair towels really help get a lot of the moisture out of my hair before blowdrying it which, in turn, cuts down on dry time! This would make a great stocking stuffer or co-worker gift!

Since switching to only cruelty free beauty products, I had to figure out a different way to take my makeup off. I use this Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm. I love the way it makes my skin feel afterwards and it smells great!

All of my makeup is stored in Glamboxes. They are amazing and so chic! One of these would be an amazing gift for the beauty lover in your life! If it’s too pricy, get multiple people to go in on it with you!
