Ack! There’s only three days left ’til Christmas! Have you finished your shopping yet? (Have you started your shopping yet? Some of us around here, ahem, have not. Oops.) Thankfully we have until the fat man sings to get our gifting acts in gear. I for one am counting on that last-minute inspiration to propel me to the finish line so I can slide my presents under the tree just in the St. Nick of time. I work best under pressure, in fact, and shopping is no exception!
When it comes to the gals in your life, the easiest (and often most successful) gifts are those little indulgences that your recipient secretly longs for but wouldn’t buy herself. You can’t go wrong with soft and lovely winter beauty essentials to ease her out of the holiday chaos and into a beautiful new year! And because I recently went on a treat yo’self shopping spree, I can personally vouch for each of these picks. They’ve been on constant repeat in my beauty routine lately.
On chilly days, a spritz of Le Labo Thé Noir 29 will heat things up with feminine spice, while the romantic drama of the Voluspa Vermeil series turns evening tub time into a luxurious escape. For a complexion perk-up, True Nature Botanicals Pacific Mist refreshes even the driest skin; Chantecaille’s uber-soft Zebra Kabuki brush glides over wind-chapped cheeks; and Marc Jacobs Beauty Under(cover) Primer contains refreshing coconut for a tropical glow that belies the grey skies. Or gift even more healthy radiance: W3LL PEOPLE Purist Blush is from the cleanest makeup brand on the market today! Finally, the color selection in the NARS Steven Klein lipstick can’t be beat, especially for that price. Tuck it all into a striped linen makeup bag that’s so pretty, you can skip the wrapping paper altogether!
