The holiday season is officially here, and you know what that means—lots of gift shopping! I’ve been getting a ton of requests from you guys for my 2018 holiday gift guide and this year I’m breaking it down into categories. Starting with the beauty lover’s gift guide, I’ve handpicked some gifts including makeup, skincare, fragrance, nails, and tools. These are all from my favorite brands and include products that I already love or have been wanting to try. Some of these gifts are available for a limited time only, and I’ve made sure to include special bundles as well. Take a look at my picks and shop them directly from this post!
