When shopping for holiday gifts for friends and family, I often shop in the beauty department. This time of the year you will find great deals on trendy eyeshadow palettes, the best skincare essentials, BeautyBlenders, holiday gift sets and stocking stuffers. When I was in my teens my mom would buy me makeup brushes, lipglosses, and eyeshadow palettes for Christmas. I must admit her gifts have always been my favorite! New eyeshadow palettes are fun because they contain colors you may not typically wear.
If you’re searching for a fabulous new eyeshadow palette, holiday gift set or beauty inspired stocking stuffer, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share the BEST beauty gift sets for the holiday season.
Eyeshadow Palettes Make The Perfect Holiday Gift

You Can’t Go Wrong With Makeup Brush Sets
Brush sets make great holiday gifts for any woman! Last year or the year before I purchased a Tarte brush set during a Sephora Sale, and I’m so glad I did. I’ve owned their contour brush for years, and it’s my favorite makeup brush of all. I figured since it was high quality, their brush sets must be too. Boy was I right! This Merry Metals Brush Set includes the same brushes I have:

Don’t you just love the rose gold handles? I do, too!

My Favorite Skincare Products For Dry, Sensitive Skin
I have been a fan of Fresh beauty products for a few years now. The Fresh Lotus moisturizer is amazing for every skin type, especially those of us with dry, sensitive skin that tends to break out! This Radiance Romance Gift Set includes a Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer, Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask, and Lotus Youth Preserve Dream Night Cream. I shared my review of the Fresh Moisturizer last year, if you’d like to check it out!
Over the summer, I felt like I needed to upgrade to a moisturizer that offered more hydration. I bought a similar Fresh Rose N’ Shine Skincare Set, and I’m so happy I did! I’m now obsessed with Fresh Beauty’s rose moisturizer. It is phenomenal and extremely hydrating. As someone with mild rosacea, I’m thankful that it doesn’t irritate my skin. The best thing about gift sets like this is it gives you a chance to try a multitude of best selling products at a fraction of the price. This set includes:
- Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner
- Rose Deep Hydration Moisturizer (MY FAVORITE!)
- Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask (Obsessed with this mask!)
- Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15
This may not be a skincare product, but this Makeup Eraser definitely makes taking off your makeup much easier! I bought my mom a Makeup Eraser years ago, and she still swears by them. Her skin is phenomenal by the way! She’s 70 and doesn’t have any wrinkles. I’m so jealous, I wish I had her beautiful skin! If you’re looking for a great Christmas gift for your mom, she’ll love this Makeup Eraser Wild Hearts The Original Makeup Eraser Duo!
My Mom Found The Fountain Of Youth With This Moisturizer
My mom has the most gorgeous skin! She turned 70 earlier this year and doesn’t have any wrinkles at all. I envy her gorgeous skin. She has been using Lancome Renergie products for years. I actually tried an eye cream in one of her gift sets recently and really love it! This Lancome Renergie Lift Multi-Action Set includes a light moisturizer, a night cream and their eye cream! It’s such an amazing deal and will make a great gift for mom, your aunt, grandma or yourself!
Lip Gift Sets That Make Great Holiday Gifts
I’m new to Charlotte Tilbury makeup. Over the years I’d heard great things about the brand, and finally splurged on her nude lipstick and “lip cheat” lipliner. To say I’m obsessed is an understatement! I absolutely love these products. They’re my go-to lipstick/lip liner. By purchasing this Charlotte Tilbury Gift of Pillow Talk Lips Set, you’re saving $10 on the most popular lipstick and lipliner in the shade “Pillow Talk.” This is the perfect holiday gift set for any woman on your list!
Have you had a chance to try Rihanna’s brand Fenty Beauty? I purchased a FENTY lipgloss last year and I’m obsessed! It’s the best lipgloss, and is super affordable too. This Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Bomb Baby 2 Mini Lip Gloss and Highlighter Set is perfection. It includes the $weet Mouth lipgloss, and Killawatt Foil luminizer in the shade “Sand Castle.”
This Laneige Kiss Me at Midnight Lip Mask Kit is a must! I have the original berry scent on my nightstand and use it every night. It keeps my lips hydrated. They never get chapped! This set includes the original berry scent, and limited edition Mint Choco and Sweet Candy!
I’ve shared my love for Fresh skincare products time and time again, and I have to admit their lip products are just as amazing. Fresh lip balms are hydrating, have SPF 15 and provide the perfect hint of color. This Fresh Sugar Lip Legends Gift Set includes:
- Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy Translucent (Satin)
- Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 in Honey (Satin), Rosé (Satin), Petal (Satin), Berry (Satin), Orchid (Satin)

I have long been a fan of Chanel lipgloss! The colors are amazing, they’re hydrating and they aren’t sticky – which is an added bonus! This Chanel Sheer Brilliance Gloss Set is under $100 and includes:

Too Faced Lip Injection is my FAVORITE lip plumper. It does sting a bit at first, but it makes your lips look much plumper! This Plump Lips That Last Set is in my cart because it’s a rarity to ever find them this at such a low price.
Mac lipglosses make great holiday gifts for your coworker, best friend, sister, sis-in-law and more! This Mac Lucky Stars Lip Gloss Kit is currently on sale for less than $21! Be sure to grab it ASAP before it sells out at this great price.
The Best Hair Tools and Hair Products
Over the years I have shared my love for Drybar hair products and how they’ve helped repair my heavily damaged thick hair! If you love Drybar as much as I do or looking to try a few new products, this is definitely for you. The Ultimate Frizz-Free Blow-Dry and Styling Set includes a Buttercup Blow Dryer, Jump Start Quick Dry Blowout Serum, a Full Pint Medium Round Ceramic Brush, Detox Dry Shampoo, Hot Toddy Heat Protectant Mist, The Tress Press Straightening Iron, and Triple Sec 3-in-1 Finishing Spray.
Jump Start is my favorite hair product of 2019! It not only helps my hair dry faster, but it gives great volume and is a heat protectant! If you’re looking for just a heat protectant, Hot Toddy is the best! Speaking of the best, the Tress Press Straightening Iron is it. I’ve had my flat iron for three years and it still works so well. It flat irons my hair and curls it too. It is one of my favorite tools on the planet! I love this set and think it would be an amazing gift.
