This holiday season, POPSUGAR Beauty tapped some of our favorite influencers, including popular brand owners, bloggers, pros, and celebrities, to share the gifts they would like to receive or give. Find more gifting inspiration here.
We want Wende Zomnir's life: she spends her days surfing on the beach in California, being a mom to her sons, and creating the empire that is Urban Decay Cosmetics. The brand is beloved for its sexy, longwear makeup — settings sprays, Naked eye shadow palettes, and longwear lipsticks are just some of the top sellers.
Since Wende has such fantastic taste when it comes to creating products you love, we figured she would be savvy at choosing the best beauty gifts to give this season.
"I couldn't survive the holidays without online shopping," she told POPSUGAR via email. "I like doing it from my desk after my boys go to bed, so that I don't miss any time with them during the holiday season. And I can do it when I travel. It's fun for me to give gifts of beauty because I'm always being asked my opinion on makeup, skin care and hair care — a beauty gift is the three-dimensional expression of all my advice!"
Wende also has a theory on present presentation. "Unless you love wrapping, I believe in spending the extra money for gift wrap and direct shipping if you are giving to an out-of-town friend or family member. Save the time and spend it with your people! And speaking of spending time with people, my resolution is to look around, look my gift recipient in the eye, and never glance down at my phone while we enjoy the festivities together, in person, in the real world."
