So you want to get a loved one some beauty goodies? Here is a helpful guide to the best budget buys for the holidays whether you are a little late to the party or want to get a head start on Boxing Day shopping!
Mascaras are always a safe option for anyone on your shopping list. You don’t need to worry about shades or skin tone so it is a fast buy. My favourites are from Maybelline (Push Up and Lash Sensational) because the brushes are so unique and their formulas are always top notch.
A good matte lippy can be hard to find but for the whopping total of $3 you can get some great picks from ELF. E.L.F is one of those brands that is totally underrated. You are good with any of their lip colours. If you absolutely have no idea what to get your gifee with a price like this you can get the whole range! Pictured I have the Matte Lip Colour in Natural.
While you are out getting deals from Topshop (UP TO 50% OFF END OF SEASON SALE) you can also pick up some beauty finds while you are at it! This Christmas Smokey Eye Kit is great for all year round. You get 3 cream smoke sticks and a liner. Such a great gifting idea.
Can’t make it to Topshop but want to really treat a friend? Try your local Walmart or Shoppers to get some budget eyeshadow palettes. This one is from Maybelline called The Blushed Nudes can will flatter all skin tones. There is also palettes from L’Oreal and Revlon that are worth checking out.
Extra brownie points to the person who gifts this during the holidays. This is the Cream Contour Palette from E.L.F. and is only $6 and you get 4 gorgeous shades including a brightening shade. They have a great promo with free shipping over $35!
Add a little glow and sparkle with my last two picks. You can never go wrong with a good nail polish. And because it is the holidays a little sparkle will go a long way this is Topshop’s Heart of Gold. If you want to get advanced then this Topshop Glow Highlighter in Gleam will take the cake. It is soft and light and perfect for holiday parties.
I hope you enjoyed this Drugstore gift guide. I have one more gift guide to share with you all so get ready to get cozy!
