I’m continuing my holiday gift guide series with one of my favorite things: beauty stocking stuffers! Personally, I like getting a mix of items for people – it feels more personal and tailor-made for the individual. Whether it’s travel minis, skincare minis, or just great all-around sets, I’m sure you’ll find the right beauty stocking stuffers for everyone on your list.
I’m breaking up this beauty stocking stuffers list because there is just so much. Let’s get started with my makeup picks.
makeup stocking stuffers
One of the things I think you can never go wrong with is small lipstick mini sets. It gives your gift recipient options in terms of color and lets them try new formulas. There sephora favorites sets are a great choice. They have a nude version and a bold version, so you have different options. The lip-shaped packaging is amazing and they have some great lip products in there. There is a ton of lip sets that I would also recommend because they (a) have a great formula and (b) you get a variety of colors. Some brands, like bite beauty, tarte, and marc jacobs have some amazing lip kits you could also pick up for the holidays.
Typically, eye shadow palettes are a little too big to put into a stocking, but the new huda beauty obsessions eyeshadow palettes are super tiny, super cute, and a great formula at a great price. I purchased the smokey obsessions, which is so beautiful and a good neutral palette. If you have a friend or family member that is a bit more adventurous with their makeup, you could pick up the electric version.
skincare stocking stuffers
Skincare is a little more tricky, but there are a few gift sets that are perfect to stick into someone’s stocking. My first pick is the holiday crackers collection from l’occitane. The best thing about this is you get 3 different crackers in the box, so you can separate them and give it to three different people.
Another brand who has amazing gift sets is drunk elephant. I am a huge fan of the c-firma serum, so I would recommend the rise + glow duo, but they also have a night time version with their highly-popular t.l.c. night serum. If you have a friend that loves their lala retro cream, they have another duo that you could pick up.
other beauty stocking stuffers
I know I mentioned this in my makeup gifts post, but tools are always a great idea. beauty blender also has cute little sets, which usually includes a full-sized beauty blender. Their midas touch set is great – it includes a full-sized beauty blender and a beauty blender solid to clean your brushes.
My final beauty stocking stuffer is one of the elizabeth and james choose your nirvana coffret perfume sets, which has 3 mini versions of their fragrances. There are two options: the floral edition and the warm + spicy edition.
