Unless you are new over here we all know that I am the ultimate Beauty School Dropout. I have an interest in beauty, I love a good beauty youtube video, but I honestly have no idea what the heck I’m doing 90% of the time when it comes to putting on my face…I mean my current nickname is “The Tinman” because of my issue with all highlighters.
With that in mind, I decided to share the ultimate gift guide for the anyone who loves beauty (like me) but needs the best products on their shelves to support their lack of skills.
So I present to you – Beauty School Dropout – The Gift Guide Edition:
This cult favorite beauty brand should be on everyone’s wishlist. With a vision of skin first. Makeup second. The team behind Glossier have created a collection of affordable products that are easy to use (no YouTube video required.
Even if you are beauty school drop out like me, you still need a little pure beauty in your life. Fresh products serve up a fusion of effective natural ingredients, time-honored rituals, and modern science offers a sensorial experience with undeniable results that is completely unique to Fresh.
The Fresh holiday gifts set are AMAZING this year and I stocked up on the Sweet & Sporty Lip Set for my sister and cousin. This $39 lip kit will nourish, tint and protect wherever you are. I highly suggest snagging it here.
Yes, this may be a bit of an extreme holiday gift, but I am a recent Kybella patient and could not be more pleased with my results. Say goodbye to your double chin and failed attempts at contouring your jawline with me!
If you are in the Bay Area I highly recommend Lieberman & Parikh in Palo Alto and use the code: KatWalkKybella.
With ten locations throughout California, a gift card to this luxury day spa is the ultimate gift. Burke Williams spas offer services from massages, facials, pedicures, manicures, body wraps, and more. I’ve been to three out of the ten locations and I can attest to the fact that each spa is equally fabulous.
