Better late than never, right?! You guys know I love all things BEAUTY – so I put together this guide of the products I often recommend in this space. Lucky for you, it’s dropping right before Christmas and most of these items can be found on amazon or in your local target! Check out the links below as well as descriptions for why you or any beauty lover would love to receive any of these recommended products!
Glamcor Riki Skinny Mirror : let’s first address the elephant in the room that this is definitely the biggest splurge on the list. BUT I also get asked about this item the MOST and I use this mirror every. single. day. The Riki mirror is the best quality mirror I have ever used, it has a phone mount attachment for recording videos, and it is FLAT so you can literally take it anywhere with you while traveling. I have wasted so many $$ on cheap makeup mirrors, it’s worth just investing in a great mirror to use every single day! Anyone I have ever recommended this mirror to, loves it!
Eva NYC Dry Shampoo : About a year ago, I worked with Eva NYC and fell in love with some of their products and hot tools. Ever since, I have been obsessed with this dry shampoo… I’ve tried a TON and this is my favorite. It is afforable, light, leaves no white residue, and really does absorb oils while leaving hair feeling fresh. You won’t regret trying this dry shampoo!
Real Techniques Everyday Essentials : you cannot go wrong with real techniques makeup brushes! I specifically love their shadow/eye brushes best, but if you are looking for a good, affordable, set of brushes with a good mix of face and eye tools, this is your best option!
The Original Makeup Eraser : I was totally late to the game on trying this makeup eraser, but everyone has great things to say about it! It’s literally a re-usable washcloth that basically removes all your makeup (even waterproof!) with just water. So underheard of, and so sustainable. Give this a try or drop in your sisters stocking!
Sonia Kashuk™ Weekender Bag : this is my very favorite makeup & toiletries travel bag. It holds SO MUCH product, lays flat in your suitcase, and has different pockets for different categories of toiletries. I have it in two colors and they have lasted me forever. This is a must have!
Sincerely Jules Clips : no long explanation here – I just love these hair barrettes and you get 3 sets for just $7.99 (gold, silver, and rose gold.) I wear these allll the time to take my “do” up a notch.
Hot Tools 1.25in Iron : Hot Tools makes amazing hot tools – imagine that. 🙂 This is the best curling iron and the size I most often recommend! The clamp is great, the quality is great, and my curls always stay when using it. It’ll last forever and is a classic must have.
The Billie Razor : Have you heard of this razor subscription yet? The quality of this razor is LEGIT and comes with refills for just $9. You put in how often you shave and it tells you how often it’ll send refills. No more spending $25 at the drugstore on refills. If you’re like me, you’ll only get sent a $9 every few months. Freaking awesome.
Sonia Kashuk Dry Brush Spray : this stuff is the bomb. You spray it on your makeup brushes and then swipe on a towel – it leaves behind a clean, dry brush. It is honestly the strangest thing ever but SO amazing! I’ve tried other dry brush cleaners and they often are very expensive or leave behind a funky smell. This one is awesome and lasts forever! You have to give it a try.
Amazon BS-Mall Brushes : these makeup brushes are so afforable and can be found on amazon. I’m not THRILLED about the eye brushes that come with this set, but I love the face brushes. At just $10, it is worth buying for those. If you want great eye brushes, check out real techniques. I have had this set for over 18 months and I am SHOCKED at the great quality!
