I think you know where I stand on this category. Beauty addicts unite, these are my absolute must-haves for this year!

Facepaint : The Story of Makeup by Lisa Eldridge ($20) | Lisa Eldrige is a woman to admire. An incredible makeup artist who embraced the social media movement with one of the first real makeup tutorial YouTube channels. This coffee table book is for the ultimate beauty fans. 

Charlotte Tilbury The Gift of Red Carpet Skin Travel Kit ($85) | This is a fabulous way to try some of Charlotte Tilbury's skincare range, which I personally use and adore. Favorites include her Goddess Skin Mask (I use before special events!), Wonderglow (a delicious radiant primer), and her Magic Cream. 

Violet Grey TSA-Approved  Hair & Skincare Set ($125) | For the ultimate jetsetter who wants to look fresh right off the flight. Any gift from Violet Grey is special. 

Nudestix #TooCute 3 Mini Lip & Cheek Set ($24) | A perfect little stocking stuffer. This is great for anyone, but especially those teenage girls who you never know quite what to buy for. This comes in three gorgeous shades including an exclusive matte red. (Look on Nudestix's instagram to see beautiful founder, Tayler, wearing it and you will be sold!)

Charlotte Tilbury Rose Gold & Night Crimson Makeup Bag ($45) | This is the third edition release of her famous 'kiss' makeup bags and my personal favorite. 

Smith & Cult Diary of a Beauty Junkie Nail Polish Set ($54) | The name says it all. For the beauty junkie who loves nails. These polishes are beautifully packaged with a beautiful formula to match.

By Terry Baume de Rose Gold Lip Balm ($31) | By Terry's signature cult favorite lip balm is infused with gold micro-particles in limited edition ornament packaging. Cute to hang on the Christmas tree! 

Frasco Double-Sided Mirror ($150) | The brass trimmed mirror comes in 3 fold or 7 fold magnification. Great for travel and comes in a velvet pouch.

May Lindstrom The Good Stuff Radiance Oil ($110) | Every single one of May Lindstrom's products are heavenly. I have repurchased her Jasmine Garden facial mist time and time again. I have yet to try her Blue Cocoon, but that is next on my list. This stunning oil smells of cocoa and leaves the skin thoroughly hydrated with a shimmer from the mica. 100 percent natural and organic. 

Slip Pure Silk Pillowcase ($79) | Sleeping on silk has countless beauty benefits such anti-aging, anti-creasing, anti-bedhead, and the fact that it's just plain luxurious. Getting into bed will become an instant treat.
