As I mentioned yesterday, this week is going to be ALL ABOUT THE GIFT GUIDES! Today’s post is about high end beauty. Most of these picks are $100+ and luxe splurges, but fear not if your budget is a bit more modest. Tomorrow’s post will be about beauty gifts under $100. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect, luxurious item for the beauty addict in your life, you’ve come to the perfect place. Let’s get to my favorite high end beauty gift ideas.
Consider the fact that one Tom Ford eyeshadow quad will run you $82, this $155 palette includes a blush and highlighter to complete your look in TF’s iconic, elegant white and gold packaging – beautiful enough to leave out on display with the performance to match in creating impeccable makeup looks. Order here.
If you haven’t tried the original, Clarisonic facial cleansing brush, then the holidays is a great time because the brand comes out with tons of little sets like this one. I have the original Clarisonic Mia with the longer handle, but the Fit version is cute and compact. Pick yours up here.
You may think, why is this mirror on the high end list?! Well, this baby is $159.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond (bonus: use a 20% off coupon for extra savings!). It’s a magnifying mirror that is able to replicate multiple different natural lighting scenarios, ensuring your makeup looks perfect no matter the occasion. With a 4.3/5 rating, it’s sure to please even the most meticulous beauty lover. Find it here.
Six, generously sized, popular Peter Thomas Roth face masks make for an excellent gift idea for the beauty buff who loves skin care and pampering (or even moms who don’t have the time for a spa day). This set includes something for any skin ailment… or split them up and gift them to multiple people for efficient shopping.
This high end foundation is not just skin-smoothing and flawless with medium/buildable coverage, but it also has La Mer’s proprietary “miracle broth” in it for added skin care benefits! Being revered by beauty bloggers/vloggers everywhere, it’s one to gift because nobody has time for a $110 foundation on the regular, right!? Splurge on it here.
Another item you can split up and gift to multiple people, the By Terry Ombre Blackstar cream/stick shadows are touted as being the best in the cream/stick shadow category. Gorgeous finishes, flattering colors and great wear-time make these a cult favorite. Pick it up here.
Bobbi Brown’s brushes are some of the best-made brushes on the market and often cost $40+ per brush, so this $200 full face set is actually a great deal covering nearly all of your makeup application needs with a carrying case for travel. These are the type of brushes that will easily last 10 years or more with proper care. Invest, invest, invest. Get yours here.
There are many cheaper brands on eBay or Amazon you can find, but the CosmoCube is said to be made of sturdier, higher quality acrylic (read: thicker). I loved this particular design because the bottom drawer is large enough to fit nail polish bottles standing up! Order here.
There are ten different sets available in this collection, but I recommend the Dolce Vita set above the rest. I haven’t talked about Charlotte much lately, but that’s just because I’m enjoying the products I have (and a few are already included in this set). The ten sets include everything needed to get the look with the exception of a foundation and optional concealer/powder. Also includes adorable makeup bag.
The most affordable item on this high end list, the Slip silk pillowcase is ideal for anyone who is looking to avoid wrinkles, damaged hair or extending the life of a blowout. This pillowcase has a 4.6/5 rating on Sephora.com and comes in five different colors to match her bedding. If you think sleeping on silk is silly, Google “silk pillowcases for anti aging” and then come back here and place your order. You’re welcome 😉
I personally loved putting together these high end beauty gift ideas and hope it helped you find the perfect fancy gift for the beauty babe in your life. Tomorrow we’ll be chatting about beauty gifts UNDER $100.
