Beauty Lover Gift Guide 2019
HAPPPPPY FRI-YAY! It’s NOVEMBER – which means I am kicking off the gift guides early this year. I wanted to do these this month instead of in December because I know if you are like me – you want to get all your shopping done as soon as possible. AND stores are already starting their holiday sales, gift boxes and more. There is no better time to start filling your cart than right now! I’ve got everything you need for ALL things beauty this year from hair to skin to makeup. I’ll be covering it in 3 sections below, so feel free to skip through or bounce around to find what speaks most to you or your loved ones! ALSO – don’t forget you can always shop specific stores by heading to the SHOP tab above! Let’s dive into this.
Beauty Lover Gift Guide 2019
*JUST A NOTE: I do make a little bit of affiliate income off of your purchases through my links. I SO appreciate every time you make a purchase – because it helps keep Blonde & Ambitious up and running. It adds NO extra cost to you. Thank you for helping to support my little space on the internet.*
HUDA BEAUTY Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette: If you are currently looking for a perfect neutral palette to add to your collection that has intense pigments, buttery blend ability and is the perfect travel size – look no further! This palette is PERFECT for that.
FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA Glossy Posse Mini Gloss Bomb Set: I am a HUGE fan of the Fenty Gloss Bomb formula. It’s intensely shiny, super slick and not sticky. It smells incredible. Why wouldn’t you want all four shades?
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Melt-Proof Brow Kit: These are my all-time favorite brow products. This kit has everything you need for picture perfect brows and you can choose that shade that works best for you.
URBAN DECAY Naked Honey Palette: I’ve been sold on this palette since I received it in the mail! I love a good Urban Decay shadow palette – and I personally feel like this one has a better formulation that the other Naked palettes. The shimmers are SO shiny!
NATASHA DENONA Sunrise Eyeshadow Palette: If you are looking to splurge on your eyeshadow this holiday season – this palette is to die for. Yellows, plums, neutrals and nudes – this palette has everything you need for every season of the year.
VELOUR LASHES Naughty But Nice Travel Case: This is my favorite lash brand. I’m not wearing a lot of lashes right now, but these would really be the only two you need if you wanted to start! It comes with a perfectly natural looking pair and a bold, show-stopping pair!
URBAN DECAY Heavy Dose All Nighter Setting Spray Duo: This is my HOLY GRAIL setting spray. Nothing keeps your makeup in place like Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. Stock up with this duo set so you’ll never run out when you need it most.
PAULA’S CHOICE Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid: Guys. This is SAVING my acne-prone skin. My acne scars are lighter and my skin actually feels soft and exfoliated overnight. If you get NOTHING ELSE this year skincare-wise – get this.
PAULA’S CHOICE Resist BHA 9 Spot Treatment: This spot treatment is amazing. One of my all-time favorites. I’m completely hooked on this brand.
SUPERGOOP! Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40: Everyone needs sunscreen – yes, even in the winter. This one is SPF 40, won’t give you flashback under your makeup and sinks nicely into your skin without making your makeup look heavy.
BEAUTYBIO GloPRO® Microneedling Regeneration Tool: Microneedling has a TON of awesome effects like: increased circulation to the face, decrease in wrinkles and fine lines, less redness and hyperpigmentation and more.
SOL DE JANEIRO Bum Bum Carnaval Celebration Set: I have talked about this lotion a LOT on my Instastories – it’s safe to say I’m fairly obsessed. It smells incredible and it is the best hand moisturizer I own.
THE ORDINARY The No-Brainer Set: This is an affordable skincare set that will set you up for success! It has good ingredients without a lot of filler, and if you are looking to revamp your skincare: this is perfect!
CLARISONIC SKINCARE Mia Prima Facial Cleansing & Pore Minimizing Skincare Device: I love my Clarisonic! It really DEEP cleans my skin and makes sure there is no extra makeup hanging around on my face before I go to bed. It’s a great tool to have to clean your face AND minimize your pores (all in one)!
WELL-KEPT Screen Cleansing Towelettes: If only we knew JUST how many germs are on our devices. YUCK. No wonder we have acne flair ups by our cheeks! These ensure you aren’t introducing harmful bacteria to your hands and face from your electronics. It’s definitely worth having on hand.
BEAUTYBIO Bright Eyes Sleep Set: I love these eye patches! I like to throw them on while I’m doing my hair before I do my makeup in the morning. It brightens up my dark under eyes (because hello, new mom here. I’m on team no sleep these days) and plumps them up, too!
BRIOGEO B. Well Vegan Omega 3, 6, 9 + Biotin Supplements for Healthy Hair: There’s nothing like helping your skin from the inside out. I love these vitamins! They help my nails feel stronger, my hair grow longer and makes sure I’m balanced overall with all the extra skincare goodness I need. SUCH a great thing to take daily!
WET BRUSH Detangling Brush: This brush is a LIFE saver! I have super tangly hair, and this is the ONLY brush that actually combs through my hair – pain-free!!
PAUL MITCHELL Smoothing Super Skinny Serum: This is my FAVORITE post-shower hair product. I use it right after I towel dry my hair on the ends and it keeps them silky and smooth for days.
Kristin Ess Dry Finish Working Texture Spray: Ok cue the list of Kristin Ess products I’m in love with. This is the BEST texture spray out there, right up at the top with my Kevin Murphy Bedroom Hair Spray (you can only buy that at salons). It’s affordable and phenomenal.
Kristin Ess Style Reviving Dry Shampoo: Again – one of the BEST. I also love the Batiste dry shampoo – but this one smells better and it looks chic-er on my counter top. 😉
Kristin Ess Wide Tooth Detangling Hair Comb: I love this for styling after I curl my hair. I spray a little bit of texturizing spray on it and comb through my curls! It adds body and volume and just a little bit of hold.
Kristin Ess Pillowcase + Mini French Pin: I have been OBSESSED with French pins lately. Kristin Ess did a tutorial using them on her instagram and from then on I was hooked. They truly make your hair look effortlessly beautiful.
BRIOGEO Banana + Coconut Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner Hair Pack: Ok. I love this stuff. It makes my hair SO SOFT and SO SHINY. It was perfect once I had repaired my hair after all the damage that I did to it bleaching this summer!
DRYBAR Pre-Party Pack Buttercup Blow Dryer Kit: The Drybar is a top brand for me. I am RARELY disappointed with their products, and this set is the perfect all-in-one hair set if you are looking to revamp the products in your bathroom!
ALTERNA HAIRCARE Caviar Anti-Aging® Restructuring Bond Repair Duo: I am firmly convinced that this duo saved my hair. I started using it at the beginning of the summer and have found that my hair is stronger, my split ends and bleach damage is almost completely gone and my hair shaft itself is sleeker and shinier. I’m converted. This is THE BEST I’ve ever used for damaged hair.
BRIOGEO Revive + Repair Power Duo: I use a deep conditioner after my regular conditioner every shower on the ends of my hair. I have fine hair that breaks easily AND I bleach my hair blonde. Briogeo is one of my ALL-TIME favorite brands these days – and these deep conditioner masks work WONDERS.

I hope this beauty lover gift guide helps you find the PERFECT gift for your loved ones this year (or – let’s be honest – add things to your OWN list this year). My own personal goal this year is to be totally done with ALL my Christmas shopping by the end of November. The only things I like to buy in December are stocking stuffers!
