Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be stressful at times. Whether you’re shopping for your mom, sister or best friend, these beauty gifts will impress without breaking the bank this holiday season. Make this festive season a beautiful one, too, with hair products, makeup brushes and even eyelash extensions.
For the Jetsetter
When traveling we all want to carry every product we use in our daily beauty routines, but that isn’t always possible. That's why we love Jentry Kelley Cosmetics' holiday mini brush set ($99) with eight makeup brushes labeled for easy application.
“They are great for anyone you know who travels, has a love for little things on the go (like myself), or for anyone who loves all things makeup,” Kelley says. The brush set is available at jentrykelley.com and eight Houston-area salons and stores, including Alira Spa, Eyebar and Shine in the Heights.
For the Drama Queen
Susan Nguyen, co-owner of Wink Lash Bar, says the gift of eyelash extensions ($150) is perfect for anyone. “Even for those who are blessed with naturally long lashes, it takes away the fuss of having to apply mascara,” she says. After all, maybe the best gift is the loads of compliments on your dramatic eyes at all the holiday parties you’ll be attending this winter.
For the Best Tressed
Even beauty experts discover and fall in love with new products sometimes. The latest obsession for Jessica Cortez, founder of Houston's Beautifully Bronzed, is the ‘You Are Loved’ boxed set ($26) by Olivine Atelier. The Love + Roses beauty mist silkens skin and refreshes hair and makeup with a blend of essential oils, flower essences and waters. The Love + Salt hair mist instantly adds volume to create beach-like waves. It's infused with Himalayan pink salt, which is also great for hydrating skin. In Houston Olivine Atelier products can be found at Sola Salon in the Heights.
