Holiday Gift Guide for Beauty Lovers (Under $30!)

This post contains affiliate links.

It’s crunch time for Christmas gifts, so today I’m sharing a gift guide for beauty lovers.  If you know someone who is a makeup addict, then these are perfect gift ideas! You may even see something you would like on the list:) Everything on the list is from Sephora, which is one of my favorite makeup stores.

ONE // Stella McCartney Pop Mini Gift Set  ($27)
I received a sample of this in one of my subscription boxes last month and really loved the scent. I took it to Vegas with me. This scent is different and fun! It smells so good!

TWO // Too Faced Love at First Kiss ($19)
Ok, I actually like smaller sized makeup, especially when it comes to blushes and lipstick, because it takes me forever to get through a big blush or big lipstick.  I love Too Faced products, and these are such pretty color!

THREE // Tarte Tarteist Pro to Go Amazonian Clay Palette 
This palette is pretty! I love the colors, and they’ll make good transition colors for spring. The only drawback is that it doesn’t have a highlight shade, but for $23, you can’t beat it!

FOUR // Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick Duo in Opal/Jam ($14)
This two-in-one lippie is so cool! The dark Jam shade is so on trend, and I love a good iridescent lip color!  You can wear the colors separately, or layer together for a night out.

FIVE // Smashbox Covershot Eye Palettes in Softlight ($29)
OK, I just ordered this palette.  It’s tiny, which means that it’s perfect to carry with you on the go, but there’s a decent amount of product.  It will be so pretty for spring! There are actually SEVEN different versions of the Smashbox Covershot Eye Palettes. I also love Ablaze and Smoky, or even Bold!

SIX //  Sephora Collection Glitter, Gold, & Everything Bold Clutch ($18)
OMG, this is on my Christmas wishlist!  This pouch is actually a really good size.  It makes a great gift by itself, or you could purchase other items on this list and fill it up!!!

SEVEN // Smashbox Light It Up Mini Eye, Lip, and Contour Palette Trio (sale $29, reg. $39)
This trio is actually the best deal on the list!  It comes with an eye shadow palette, lip color palette, and contour palette.  The packaging is so pretty, which is always a plus! You get a lot of product for the price.  You could even split these up as stocking stuffers for different friends.

EIGHT // Sephora Precision Makes Perfect Mini Airbrush Sponge Set ($10)
I love Sephora Collection blenders.  They come at a great price point, especially when compared to the Beauty Blender brand. While these are technically minis, I love the size and use them all the time. The colors are bold and bright too!!!

NINE // Stila Bright & Bold Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick Set ($20)
While you all know that LipSense is my fave (and you still have a couple of days to order it for it to arrive by Christmas), I also really like Stila Stay All Day lippies. This is the perfect set of colors, and will be perfect to wear now through spring and summer!!! And once again, you could even split these up as stocking stuffers, or split them into three gifts by pairing one of them with one of the Smashbox trio each!!!

FYI, Sephora is advertising that you can get your gifts by December 23 if you order by today at 11:59 pm PT for select fragrances and other restricted items, or order by Monday, December 19 at 11:59 pm PT for standard shipping. Shipping is FREE over $50, or you can purchase Sephora FLASH, which gives you unlimited 2-day shipping for $10/year with no minimum purchase required (check expected delivery time for this option for Christmas delivery though!).
