Holiday Gift Guide for Beauty Gurus – 2023

I love finding the best beauty products! They’re probably my favorite products to test out! Here’s my tried and true faves. Find more of my favorite products over on the TRAVELER gift guide.

Shine Cosmetics – I’ve been using Shine for years and they’ve never failed me! Goals is my fave lip gloss ( I created it 😜) , I can’t live without their BB Cream, love their bronzer/ highlighter sticks, AND they just launched new makeup brushes that are amazinggggg. Code TARA saves you 10%!

Cozy Confidence Curl Band – Heatless curls were a huge trend this year and this was the best band I found BY FAR. Comfortable to sleep in and the curls turn out amazing. Code TARA saves you 10%.

Dyson Airstrait – I wanted to hate this product because of how expensive it is.. But, IT’S SO GOOD. Seriously a game changer for those of us with curly hair. You can check out my IG highlight bubble about it for all the facts/ how I do my hair with it.

Eyelash Serum – The best eyelash serum I’ve used ever. I have super sensitive eyes so I had to go through a couple days of irritation before they got used to it, but it was worth it. My lashes are thicker, fuller, and longer. I had one of you DM me to put it on after your makeup for the day is on vs at night because we are less likely to rub our eyes and irritate them. GENIUS.

Nutrafol – I equate a lot of my hair growth to Nutrafol! You have to take it for 4-6 months before seeing results, but the results are incredible.

Coco + Eve Tanning Mist – Did you think there would ever be a product that would give you a glowy tan without touching your face? I sure didn’t! This is amazing because you spray and and over the course of a couple hours you’ve got a beautiful glow. Code TARA15 saves you 15% on single items!

Kerastase Hair Oil – A day doesn’t go by where I don’t use this. Super hydrating hair oil.

Dior Cuticle Cream – When I think about my holy grail beauty items, this is pretty close to the top of the list. One jar will last you years. It hydrates your cuticles so well.

Dior Lip Oil – If you are wanting a HIGH GLOSS look this lip oil will achieve that! A ton of color options too, all are super subtle.

Ice Roller – An ice roller can help decrease face puffiness/ inflammation. Plus it feels soooo good. Code TARA saves you 10% on this one!

Ursa Major Face Wipes – I originally bought these when we went camping to be able to quickly clean my face and have taken them with me anywhere I travel ever since! So convenient.

Glossier Perfume – A perfume that smells a bit different on everyone? Sounds pretty cool to me! Overall this is a very clean and refreshing scent.

Kiehl’s Faves – You guys have introduces me to the world of Kiehl’s and I now understand the hype around it! My faves are the avocado eye cream + rare earth cleansing mask. The eye cream is thick and mega hydrating and the mask purifies and minimizes pores so well.

Eyelash Comb – I share my eye makeup faves a few months ago and was surprised that not a ton of people has heard about this! It gets rid of clumps if you have any after putting your mascara on.

Gel Polish – I’m a Red Aspen girl through and through, but I know they aren’t for everyone! I just picked these colors up to add to our gel nail collection! Em + Anisten love doing their nails!

Bio Ionic Curling Iron – Got this for Anisten last Christmas and had to go back and order myself all the sizes because it’s AMAZING. The best curling iron I’ve ever used. They occasionally have coupons that make it under $99 so watch for those!

OSEA Malibu – You literally can’t go wrong with OSEA. Code TARAHOLIDAY will save you 10%. They have some great holiday bundles on their site right now too! Their products are the best of the best. My faves are:

ColorWow Dream Coat – A hair product that makes your hair shiny + silk smooth! A lot of you love this too.

Night Gloss – Slap this on at night for some seriously replenished lips when you wake up. It’s got hyaluronic acid in it which helps a lot.

Cordless Tanning Machine – My old tanning machine crapped out on me earlier this year and I was on the hunt for an even better machine and I found one in this. LOVE that it’s cordless and it sprays vertically + horizontally. It’s amazing! Grab this tanning wall while you’re add it to save your shower walls.

Clean Skin Club Face Towels – Gone are the days of drying your face with with the same dirty towel every time you wash your face. These are absorbent and super soft! They’re also massive so you can cut them up so they last longer if you want. You can also get this bamboo drawer for them to make it look pretty.

Dyson Airwrap – You’ve heard so many people hype this puppy up, but I promise it’s worth the hype. It has so many attachments and is the perfect all in one tool. Grab this diffuser attachment from amazon too if you want to do your hair curly without needing an entire other tool.

Jack Black Lip Balm – Our entire family loves this stuff and it’s an essential in the summer because it has SPF in it.

Cosmetic Case – This is what I keep my makeup in at home!

Elemis Cleansing Balm – I’ve used this for years, basically melts your makeup off. Love it so, so much.

Peter Thomas Roth Eye Firming Cream – This is an insane products! It temporarily tightens under your eyes, perfect for special events or pictures. Honestly, you could wear it everyday if ya wanted.

TULA – Another brand I’ve loved for years! Here’s a few of my fave products.. Code TARA for 15% OFF site wide!

  • Tula Under Eye Kit – The “Eye Balm Extravaganza” is the perfect name for this trio. Comes with a glow and go cooling balm, rose glow and go cooling balm, and the day and night treatment balm. 
  • Holiday Kit of Exfoliators – I love to use these to get my spray tan off! The holiday scents are sooo good. 
  • Purifying Cleanser – This is a great size bottle. Gentle and doesn’t dry out my face. 

Dior Blush – This went viral on TikTok, it looks pretty on everyone skin tone I’ve seen. I was afraid it would be too pink, but it’s beautiful on! I love the other colors too.

Dr. Dennis Gross Eye Mask – This light therapy mask works wonders on fine lines + crows feet. It’s got a timer so it’ll automatically turn off once it’s done. I use it every day. I also love their daily peel masks!

Shark Styler – This is a little less expensive than the Dyson Air Wrap! This Shark gives me a smoother blow out because of the brush attachments and more volume.

Red Aspen – If you’ve followed me for awhile you know how much I love their products!

  • Nail Dashes – A 2 week manicure for under $20 is a perfect gift in my book. There are soooo many designs and colors that you’re bound to find the perfect one for anyone on your list!
  • Eye Shadow – Red Aspen doesn’t just do nails right, their makeup is amazing. I love the eye shadow palettes!

Amber Roller – This is the perfume I keep in my purse. It’s fairly strong, but I love it!

Glow Beauty Brush – This feels like you’re getting a scalp massage every time you brush your hair. The bristles are metal and the quality is unmatchable. It was made by cosmetologists too! Code TARA saves you 10%.

4 Pack Tweezers – Tweezerman makes my favorite tweezers, this pack includes different angled ones.

Kitsch Products – Kitsch has so many hair products I love! Shop my faves HERE. If I had to choose just one product though, it would be the hair towels!
