GIVING PRETTY

The best gifts are those you know for certain the recipient will use and enjoy, but that they may not typically buy for themselves. Indulgent beauty products fit that category perfectly. From luxurious skincare to packed makeup palettes, this is also the best time of year to get the best value with great gift sets. To help narrow down the search when you hit the mall, we’ve rounded up smart buys with universal appeal (no tricky shade matching required).


In partnership with Cadillac Fairview

• The secret to a flawless face starts with expert skincare, and makeup artists swear by this Japanese line (the dewy skin mist especially).

Tatcha Skincare for Makeup Lovers Obento Box, $80 at Sephora

• • •

• Most people can’t justify splurging $600+ on one of the year’s biggest beauty releases, which makes it the ultimate gift to receive. The follow up to Dyson’s iconic blow dryer is the Air Wrap styler, which uses air, not heat, to safely style hair.

Dyson Air Wrap Smooth and Control, $650 at Sephora

• • •

• What’s the secret to waking up wrinkle-free? A silk pillowcase! (Yes, it’s really that simple.) This limited-edition two-piece set includes a pure silk eye mask to ensure your gift recipient not only wakes up beautiful, but well-rested, too.

slip for beauty sleep White & Pink Collection, $165 at Nordstrom

• • •

• If gifting a spa trip is out of the budget, this luxurious holiday kit with a honey bath soak, body wash, body cream and perfume will more than suffice. (We’ll take one too, please.)

Laura Mercier Luxe Indulgences Ambre Vanille Luxe Body Four-Piece Collection, $98 at Saks Fifth Avenue

• • •

• There’s nothing like a new palette to usher in the holiday season, and this one includes the most gorgeous jewel-tone shades for eyes, tones for highlighting and contouring, and rich brow powders, all at a wallet-friendly price point.

NYX Love Contours All palette, $27

• • •

• Makeup brushes are a fail-safe gift for beauty lovers because no matter their skin type or colouring, brushes are universal. This kit from MAC includes a powder, cheek, foundation and concealer brush — all of the essentials (for essentially a third of the price).

MAC Face Brush Kit / Shiny Pretty Things, $60

• • •

• You can never have too many travel cases (they wear out and stain so quickly!). This beautiful four-piece kit makes organizing everything a cinch.

Love and Lore 4-Piece Travel Set Ditsy Floral, $40 at Indigo

• • •

• Treat your friends and family to a little #selfcaresunday with this masking kit. It has masks for dry skin, dull skin and one-too-many-cocktails skin.

The Face Shop 7-Day Mask Intense Nourishing Kit, $20 at Nature Collection

• • •

• Lend a helping hand this holiday season with this hand wash and balm in one of Aesop’s signature scents. It’s warm, woodsy and sultry.

Aesop Reverence Duet$161 at Nordstrom

• • •

• This universal highlighter kit is the perfect gift to help your loved one really shine. The Bar of Gold Highlighter Palette contains three super pigmented, shimmering shades of long-wearing, blendable gold powder and is packed with a tapered brush for precise application.

Charlotte Tilbury Gilded Goddess Kit, $135

• • •

• For full body radiance, look no further than this travel-sized set. With a lemongrass-scented Sugar Body Scrub, Body Butter in Citrus Mimosa and Glow Shimmer dry oil, it’s the next best thing to gifting a beach vacation.

Beautycounter Shimmer & Shine Body Set, $59

• • •

• Gift this set of hyper-moisturizing tinted balms to that one friend who’s always got 17 lip products floating around the bottom of their purse, or split it up to give as stocking stuffers to each pal in your crew.

Fresh Sugar Jetsetter, $55 at Sephora
