Beauty is a very personal affair. It's tough to guess what people might love — everyone has their die-hard favorite products and tried-and-true go-tos that they know look good on them. But the holidays also present a perfect time to show the beauty-lovers in your life how well you know them! We'd argue that giving someone a spot-on palette or serum can reflect the closeness of your relationship, and be an extremely meaningful gift.
No matter who you have on your holiday gift list this year, we're giving you a jumping-off point for beauty presents that will wow everyone from your mom to your high-school-age cousin. Whether you're seeking cosmetics, skin care items, or beauty tools, e.l.f. Cosmetics has a huge range of products — it's a one-stop shop for all your eye, lip, and face needs.
It doesn't matter if your mom is a makeup pro or prefers to go bare faced — she could always use some gorgeous, hydrating products that make every day a spa day. You can't go wrong with a sheet mask; grab one for yourself as well and spend a holiday morning masking together! While you're at it, show her how to use her new e.l.f. facial massager for a moment of relaxation with an added depuffing bonus. If she loves a smoky eye or a more subtle shine, the Haute Chocolate Palette has her covered from morning to night.
Treat your BFF like the queen she is with products that will only amplify her natural beauty. Everyone loves a highlighter; choose the shade based on her skin tone and watch her shine like a diamond. Set a date for a girls' beauty night in — do mani/pedis and face masks (the e.l.f. Charcoal Bubble Mask is seriously crazy) and cheers to your baby-soft skin.
Your Favorite Coworker
Unless your coworker is also your best friend, you probably want to stay a little bit more general when it comes to beauty gifts. Get her a set that has multiple products or a palette of relatively neutral colors. Then again, if she regularly wears a bold lip, go for that high-intensity red! You also can't go wrong with a nice sheet mask, no matter her beauty regimen.
