Happy Friday — so excited to share my official first gift guide of the year on Oh So Glam, now that it is December 1st! In all seriousness, it feels like time is flying even FASTER than usual this holiday season. We’re in full holiday mode over here at OSG HQ — hopefully you checked out the 1st annual GLAM Holiday Magazine, and if you haven’t yet… what are you waiting for?! There are a ton of holiday looks, beauty tips, holiday entertaining tips, and a massive gift guide for everyone on your list!
Back to this gift guide — we all know that girl in your life that is OBSESSED with anything and everything beauty. This list is for HER!
BEST BEAUTY BUYS 2017
T3 Featherweight Hair Dryer — I’ve had this hairdryer for the last 2 years and LOVE it. I’m also hooked on the brush that came with it!
Sigma Beauty Classically Beautiful Brush Set — The new year is always a good time to switch up brushes and start fresh. This set has everything you could ever need for your face and Sigma is one of the best brands there is!
T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wands — My go-to styling set! I’ve had just about every hair style since I got this set a few years ago and have been able to use all 3 wand attachments (depending on the length of my hair). Right now, I’m using the 1″ wand (the curls last for DAYS), but I love the tapered wand for beachy waves and the larger wand for when I want an undone look right away!
Personalized Makeup Case — My cosmetic cases always end up filthy, so I love a replacement and a good monogram!
Microneedling Regeneration Tool — This is all the rage and I actually had microneedling done professionally last spring (and my skin was in amazing shape for months). This is a lighter version you can do at home (for a fraction of the cost) and other beauty bloggers rave about this one!
Drybar ‘Detox’ Dry Shampoo For Brunettes — One of my favorite brands for dry shampoo, I love this one for brunettes (since I’m back to dark). It’s a game changer for your roots and blends so much better into darker hair than white formula!
Beautyblender Keep.it.clean Set — This is on my list this holiday season!
Butter London Triple Treat Set — I actually have this set and use it on my toes during the winter months, but it’s perfect for your nails in the summer!
Neulash Lash Enhancing Serum — My new BFF. I stopped going for lash extensions this fall because I was doing so much traveling and couldn’t find the time for the lengthy appointments! I started using this serum while I had my lash extensions so when the last one fell, my lashes would be in great shape! It took about a month, but this stuff really works and I totally get the hype! I’m stocking up since I’m already almost through my first bottle!
Aveda Wooden Paddle Brush — You all know my love for anything Aveda! This brush is heaven!
Vanity LED Mirror — Another item on my list this holiday season! I have a lot of makeup tutorials in the works for this month and into 2018, so this will come in handy! Santa, pretty please?!
Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist — This is the most amazing smell in the world. I love carrying mist around with me and keep this in my purse at all times. My skin is usually very dry (and even dryer in the winter months), and I always have a fear of my foundation looking cakey or cracked. I spritz this on when my skin is feeling dry during the day and it helps keep my face makeup looking fresh!
Jo Malone London Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne — I went into the Jo Malone store in London and this was my favorite scent!
Ouai Wave Spray — Probably the best wave spray I’ve ever used! I actually like to use this on second or third day hair to break up my curls and give them more of a wavy texture!
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage — My go-to in the winter months. This formula is super creamy and I love that it doesn’t crease after wearing. I also love that there are two colors within the palette so you can really mix and match to get your perfect concealer color.
La Mer The Renewal Oil — You know my love for La Mer. I use the face cream (below) in the winter and have heard the most amazing things about this face oil!
Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle 24K Gold Intense Wrinkle Sheet Mask — A GOLD face mask?! Does it get anymore GLAM than that?! I have a few of these and save them for special occasions (day of a wedding, holiday party, etc.)
Lancome Eyelash Curler — My go-to lash curler! I’ve had mine for about 10 years (no joke).
Charlotte Tilbury ‘Luxury’ Palette — I’ve seen this palette in person and drool over it every time. I’ve been trying to get more into eye shadows to make my eyes pop and might have to take the plunge on this one!
La Mer Creme De La Mer Moisturizing Cream — The BEST OF THE BEST. Worth every penny and then some. I can’t rave enough about this cream, especially this time of year. My nose usually gets SO dry and red — I rub a little on before bed and it takes away that “winter nose” look I dread having.
Urban Decay ‘Naked3’ Palette — Every beauty lover’s go-to.
Oribe Signature Moisture Masque — My hair also gets super dry this time of year from all the indoor heat. I love using this masque once a week on my whole head and will use it on my ends when they’re feeling extra dry!
