We all have a beauty-guru in our lives.
She is the one who is always in the know about the best new foundation, can contour like a Kardashian and is the first to jump to try out the latest skincare trends. Maybe that person is you– still, we’re always looking to give the gift of makeup and skincare to someone in our lives in the month of December.
Beauty gift sets are one of my favorite parts of the holiday season. Bundled up products with a value price tag is always a great way to play around and discover some great new products that may be otherwise you and/or your beauty-loving bestie had been hesitant to invest in.
Earlier this year I had the opportunity to take a sneak peek at some of the great holiday gift sets at Ulta was blown away– I’m talking 3 floors (in what was once the home of Elizabeth Taylor… but minor detail) oozing with all the makeup and skincare goodness.
Today I’m sharing with you some of my favorites!
I love that there is a little of everything in this set! With 25 eyeshadow shades, two blushes,a matte bronzer, two Tarteist lip colors & golden champagne highlighter you can create a full-face look, from dreamy to dramatic.

I simply cannot express my love for IT Cosmetic brushes enough. Individually, they can be a bit of an investment, but this set (Valued at $150) allows you to test drive some of the brushes you’d use for every day for just a fraction of the cost AND comes with a super cute glitter bag.
