Some of the best beauty gifts, in my opinion, are tools and accessories that will help streamline a routine, jazz up your look, or add something special to your primping ritual. They’re the gifts that keep on giving, and that can really step up your looks or enhance the effects of your products.
These beauty tools will be much appreciated by any beauty lover, but some are practical self-care finds for the average person, too! I’ve curated gift ideas small and large, from stocking stuffers to impressive gestures. Click the picture to find the beauty tool gift online.
1. BH Cosmetics Crystal Quartz Brush Set ($29)
Every makeup-wearer needs a reliable brush set. This one will give them a choice for every step in their routine from face to eyes, plus a travel zip pouch!
2. 100% Silk Pillowcase for Hair and Skin ($24.99)
A pillowcase? What’s that doing on a beauty gift guide? The truth is, sleeping on a silk pillowcase can help cut down on hair frizz and breakage, and is more gentle on your skin if you’re a side sleeper.
3. Miracle Face Erase 2 Pack ($11.97)
Makeup remover cloths are a great eco-friendly alternative to wipes. They’re washable and reusable, and can take makeup off without cleanser! I typically use them with cleanser, though, for an extra deep clean when I’ve got a full face of makeup on.
4. Ulta Beauty Smarts Hair Towel ($12)
A microfiber hair turban helps absorb excess moisture more than a typical towel, and is more gentle on the hair. I always wear one for about 25 minutes before blow drying, and it takes way less time.
5. Simplehuman Lighted Vanity Mirror ($99)
For a beauty gift that will really wow, this mirror takes the cake. It’s my personal favorite beauty tool, as it makes application so much easier. The brightness shows you how your makeup will look in natural lighting, and has a motion sensor that illuminates the mirror when you approach it.
6. Ardell Magnetic Liner & Lash Kit ($14)
Magnetic lashes are all the rage, and these are my favorite budget-friendly option. The kit comes with a magnetic gel eyeliner that attracts the lashes and holds on to them all day. This is great for adding drama to your look without the messiness of glue!
7. Daily Concepts Gua Sha Facial Jade Tool ($16)
The perfect stocking stuffer for a skin care lover! A Gua Sha tool is used for lymphatic massage which can help with fine lines and puffiness. Since a gua sha tool is more sturdy than a face roller, you can use this all over the body for the massaging benefits as well.
8. Tweezerman I-Lashcomb ($11)
One of my secret weapons for great lashes, this lash comb helps detangle and remove clumps if you’ve gone overboard with the mascara.
9. Ion Copper Deluxe Flat Iron ($79.99)
This is my current go-to flat iron for silky straight strands that retain shine and movement. It heats up to 400 degrees and works quickly, even on my thick hair.
10. Sephora The Cleanse: Daily Brush Cleaner ($14)
I think most beauty lovers will agree that washing makeup brushes is a pain. This spray will help spot clean bristles to keep buildup away between washes.
11. The Original Wet Brush Detangler Hair Brush ($7.19)
Everyone can benefit from a Wet Brush. This brush makes brushing hair post-shower so much easier, gliding through tangles like butter without tugging or breakage.
12. Kiss Instawave Curling Iron ($49.99)
I don’t use typical hair curlers anymore, because I love my Instawave so much. This is an automatic curling iron that wraps the hair around the barrel for you, evenly distributing heat for neater and longer lasting curls or loose waves.
13. Fashion Hair Clips Set ($10)
Large hair pins are all the rage right now. This multi-pack has a ton of options for different looks.
