Holiday Gift Guide: Beauty & Makeup

It's really fun trying new products and even more fun when you find products that you really like and that work! Today I will be sharing some of my (Hannah's too - we are literally two peas in a pod..even when it comes to makeup and beauty swags...haha..) favorite products that I really love! A lot of these products will make a great gift for your girl-friends, mom, aunts, cousins, and of course yourself! ;)

1) Perfume
Chanel Chance: You guys, this perfume is amazing! I'm very picky about scents, but I fell in love with this perfume since college and have been wearing it since! This one is really light - not overpowering, and very clean, but still sexy.
Tory Burch: I got a sample of this awhile back and loved the scent so much that I bought a full sized one too! This one also has a clean and fresh smelling to it - nothing crazy!

2) Blush + Bronzer
Bobbi Brown Blush: I use "nude pink" and "rose" - Nude pink is a great color for summer/spring, and I love using the color Rose during the winter time! This is the best blush I have found, the pigments are amazing and slide right onto your skin!
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer: This bronzer is everything!! It's a little on the expensive side, but its wroth every penny! I especially love using this during the winter time - it gives your the perfect sun-kissed glow.

3) Mascara
Better Than Sex: The name of says it all (haha...), but really - you have to try it!
L'Oreal Double Extend: Since my eyes lids covers all most of my eye-lashes (ugh Asian probs), I use a coat or five... of the primer (white side) to help my eyelashes look thicker and longer! You have to try it, whether you are Asian or not...hahah

4) Contour Kit & Brows
Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit: Trust me on this one - you will be so happy if you get this kit!
Water Proof Brow Color

5) Beauty Blender
Beauty Blender: I consider beauty blender a little expensive considering you have to change them out so often, but I absolutely can not do my makeup without them! Before I discovered BB, I would literally only use my hand to blend in foundation (yeah.....you live and learn ladies....struggles) so this is major "omg moment" for me..haha...

*Tip: dip your BB in water before use - it will blend your makeup even better! This will make a great stocking stuffers! 

6) Brush Cleaning Mat 
Sigma Beauty Brush Cleaning Mat: If you would consider yourself as a "make-up guru" and have a lot of brushes, the Sigma cleaning mat is definitely worth buying!

7) Hair Products
Wet Brush: The only brush that doesn't break my hair!
Hair Therapy Deep Conditioning Hair Wrap: I try to deep condition my hair at least once month depending on how much heat I put into my hair. This hair wrap not only works but also smells ahhhmazingggg! 
Oh, I also use It's a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product after I wash my hair/ before blow dry. I have been using this product for almost 5 years now and lets just say, it really does create miracles....hahaha...

8) Lipsticks
YSL "Beige Tribute": This is by far my favorite nude color I've tried!
M.A.C "Snob" & "Rouge"
Anastasia Lip Gloss
Chanel "Rouge" Lip Gloss: This was Hannah and I's very first lipstick/gloss "investment". We still laugh about it till this day because of how upset we got after we bought it! We thought we were so dumb for spending $40 dollars on a lipgloss when could have bought 10 jars of pb pretzels.....hahah...but you really do get for what you pay. This gloss is long lasting, creamy - its not try or sticky, and leaves the perfect finish! BUT we also love a good NYX Lipgloss - $4 dollars, yes pleaseeee!

9) Facials
Origins Charcoal Face Mask: Hello clean pores!
Tsubaki Oil Deep Hydration Mask: This mask will do wonders to your skin! It has a great moisturizing effect and will literally make your skin look plump (in a good way) and glowy afterwards. I love taking face masks with me when i'm traveling!
Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm: This may seem odd to you at first, but you have to give it a try. It takes off your makeup and adds moisture to your skin at the same time. I swear by this stuff.
Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads: Hannah LOVES this stuff! This is what I used too before I switched to the cleaning balm!

10) Natural Glows
Jergens Natural 3 Day Glow
Jergens Glow Foaming Moisturizer
Both of these products are great to use in between spray tans!

11) Clarisonic
Mia Fit: I love love love my Clarisonic! If you are lazy like me, you will love this too! It does all the scrubbing for you! and it really does do a wonderful job of deep cleaning your skin/pores! The Mia fit is great for traveling! The Clarisonic Mia 2 is currently on major sale!! Would highly recommend getting one!

Alright, andddddd that is a wrap! Hope you guys will try and love some of these products! Have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
xo, amy & hannah
