Beauty Jobs – Last Minute Beauty Gift Guide

Friday, December 22nd, 2017

When it comes to gift giving, the gift of beauty is always a good idea. Especially during the holidays, when everyone’s skin can use a little extra TLC. This Christmas pamper your loved ones with these amazing beauty items that we’ve rounded up below.

RMS Beauty Luminizer X Quad Palette
We’re a huge fan of RMS Beauty, and once we saw this mini palette we know it would make such an amazing gift.  It comes with a quad of shimmering highlighters, each shade can be worn alone, blended together for a custom glow or mixed into any product for added luminosity.

Amopé Pedi Perfect Gift Set
Who doesn’t love a good pedicure, especially one that can be done at home! For under $60, this limited-edition gift set comes with Amopé’s Pedi Perfect Electronic Foot File with Diamond Crystals, an extra coarse roller head (for pesky stubborn skin), coarse roller head (for hard skin), the soft touch roller head (for buffing feet), a roller cover, cosmetic bag, and batteries.

Hard Candy Advent Calendar
Whoever says you can’t get an advent calendar after Christmas has never checked out Hard Candy’s incredible beauty advent calendar. For less than $10, you get 12 various products, each surprisingly pigmented. It’s a great way to sample a number of the brand’s items.


Hard Candy’s All Lit Up
For the woman who has every beauty item under the sun, this kit gives her the best of all worlds as she can sample a number of products. This kit includes a contour kit, a blush kit, perfecting primer, eyeshadow primer, and a setting spray.

SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque
Every beauty lover will appreciate a soothing facemask, especially during the holidays. This Phyto Corrective Masque helps reduce visual redness, discomfort, and heat – leaving you with healthy glowing skin.

Elizabeth Grant’s Beautiful Colour Lip Stain
Every woman needs a red lipstick for the holidays, especially a lip stain that will stay on through all the parties and cocktails. Elizabeth Grant’s Beautiful Colours Lip Stain is a semi-permanent lip stain containing pigments of colour that adhere to the lips for colour that lasts and lasts and lasts.

French Girl Body Oil Duo
Anyone that’s tried the French Girl line before understands how addicting these products are. That’s why we love this duo set, as it allows your favourite gals to sample two popular items: the Bronzing Oil and the shimmery Moonlight Oil.

Fenty Beauty Lip Stain
This gorgeous red colour is perfect for the holidays and leaves you with high-impact colour and low-maintenance long-wear, so you only need to apply it once for a big night out.
