Womanista Beauty: Holiday Makeup Gift Picks

‘Tis the season for picking up fabulous makeup gifts for yourself and your glamazon loved ones! Some of the top names in beauty a bundling up their goodies for the holiday season in pretty packaging…and you can get some serious deals! Check out a few of my favorites!

Yves Saint Laurent Holiday Set: YSL Beauty makes some of my favorite products, and they all happen to be in this gift set. I use the Touche eclat highlighter, Golden Gloss, and their mascara regularly in my makeup routine.

Throw in a mini waterproof eye liner and you have the perfect set of handpicked makeup items from YSL. Plus, the makeup case that it comes in basically doubles as a clutch (it’s like a mini “muse” bag). It retails for $65 from Sephora (regularly $107).


Tarte Cosmetics “Treat Yourself to Gorgeous” Gift Set: This is the ultimate makeup-lovers gift! TODAY ONLY (seriously, this is a can’t-miss buy!) you can get $244 worth of Tarte goodies for only $49!

This kit features 28 luxurious items, including 20 amazonian clay eye shadows (my hands down faves are the gold and bronze shades. They are super rich with a hint of shimmer!) four waterproof eyeliners, and 4 divine shine lip glosses.

Plus, it comes in three different cases, so you could keep one for yourself and gift the other two (or just keep them all for yourself!).

e.l.f. “Smokey Eye” Beauty Book: This kit gives you all the tools to create the perfect smokey eye in several party-perfect shades!

It comes with six eye shadows (3 for highlighting and 3 for smoking your eyes out!), an eye lid primer (so that your shadow doesn’t crease and your makeup stays on all night), and a rich, black eyeliner pencil.

Plus, it comes with step-by-step instructions on exactly how to create a gorgeous smokey eye. Did I mention that it’s $5??? Yes. FIVE. DOLLARS. You can get one for yourself and a few friends. This kit also makes for a great stocking stuffer!

Enjoy these makeup goodies this holiday season, womanistas!

xo, the Womanista
