13 Holiday Beauty Gifts For Every Member of Your #GirlSquad
Gift shopping for your beauty-loving besties can be tricky. Everyone in your squad is likely to have a different personality and preference when it comes to beauty. Your crew might consist of the Kylie Jenner wannabe who is constantly seeking new ways to fake a plump pout, the beauty risk-taker who isn't afraid to go grunge, or the DIY diva who spends hours ripping apart her kitchen to come up with easy beauty remedies.
To make shopping for your team a breeze, we've picked out the best presents for all of the unique ladies in your life. Whether she has rainbow hair or never skips a blowout, there'll be no more one-size-fits-all beauty gifts on your shopping list. These fun picks will be everything your gals have ever wanted. . . and will crown you the best gift giver of the bunch.
For the Fashion-Lover
Your fashion-forward friend knows a classic piece when she sees one. Instead of buying her a clothing item she might already own, gift her this luxe Marc Jacobs Decadence Eau de Parfum ($120). The statement bottle, inspired by an iconic handbag shape, is an instant vanity upgrade. The python-printed cap, gold chain, and black tassel make it pretty enough to be an accessory on its own, and the elegant blend of Italian plum and Bulgarian rose will add a posh, fragrant finish to every outfit she dons.
For the Blowout Addict
The Drybar Peace on Earth Good Hair to All Kit ($199) comes with everything your hair-obsessed friend needs to perfect the art of the at-home blowout. If she's constantly skipping out on girls' night out because her hair isn't done, this gift leaves her with no more excuses.
For the Kylie Jenner Fan
You can spot the Kylie Jenner-obsessed girl in your clan by her most frequent lipstick choice. If her daily look includes a slightly overdrawn neutral lip, then she's probably taking notes from the reality star. The Buxom Pout Out Loud ($19) kit is a great way for her to amplify her pout. The tingly nude gloss comes in handy for daytime, while the deeper berry is a great shade for after-work soirees.
For the Contouring Queen
This friend is likely to spend hours watching YouTube tutorials on how to chisel her cheekbones and won't stop until she reaches Kim Kardashian-level contour status. The limited-edition Nars x Steven Klein One Shocking Moment Palette ($69) is the perfect one-shot gift and has all of her sculpting essentials, including blush, bronzers, and highlighters.
For the Grunge Goddess
We all have a friend who isn't afraid to try the most daring beauty trends — including the latest, grunge makeup looks. If she isn't afraid to vamp up her look, this Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Midnight Black ($20) will make the perfect stocking stuffer.
For the Disney-Lover
For the certified Disney freak, give this limited-edition Disney Collection compact mirror ($32). Each compact features a Disney princess and is an awesome addition to her collection stash.
For the K-Beauty Junkie
If she can't resist a good sheet-mask selfie, then she'll love this Peach and Lily Korean mask set ($20). The set comes with five masks, all of which include snail mucin to fight signs of aging and ginseng to maintain her youthful glow. Not only will your friend's skin be on point, but she can also unwind and let the magic happen without leaving home.
For the Frequent Gym-Goer
You've probably turned down multiple Spin class invites from this active squad member. That's why the Bumble and Bumble All the Trimmings mini dry shampoo kit ($27) is the perfect addition to her gym bag. It will ensure her strands stay fresh after a sweat session, and it also comes with a chic hair tie.
For the Glam Diva
Help your resident diva grow her blinged-out beauty collection with this BaubleBar x Vaseline bejeweled mini lip therapy jar ($45). The sparkly beauty-bag essential is decked out in European crystals and is the first jar design from the fashion-jewelry line. The release is limited edition, so hurry up and grab one for your friend (and one for yourself, too!).
For the Curly Girl
Now is the perfect time to make your curlfriend's dreams come true. The DevaCurl Bright Lights, Big Curls kit ($159) comes with the cult-favorite DevaDryer and DevaFuser attachment to help enhance her hair texture, plus every product she needs to care for her mane. Prepare yourself for some major mane envy once she opens this up.
For the Nail Polish Addict
There's no such thing as too much nail polish for the girl who changes lacquer like she changes clothes. She'll treasure this 24-piece Ciaté London Mini Mani Month polish set ($59) featuring a range of shades (from white to glittery ruby), a nail treatment, and a file. The cutest part is that the kit is built like an Advent calendar, with each polish hidden behind a window to reveal a new lacquer as she counts down to the holidays.
For the DIY-Lover
Your DIY-everything pal will love the Handmade Beauty Box Pink Salt Scrub Set ($34). It comes with all the goodies she needs to make a luxurious homemade body scrub, like coconut oil and pink Himalayan sea salt. There are even tiny jars so she can share the love.
For the Rainbow-Hair-Lover
If your girl is known for constantly changing up her style and sprucing up her hair with trendy colors, then drop a few of these Kevin Murphy Color Bug Hair Shadows ($20) in her holiday gift bag. The easy-to-use hair chalk allows her to experiment with color without a permanent commitment. The pods come in a wide range of fun shades, including neon yellow, pink, orange, and even a shimmery gold so she can really show off her holiday spirit.
