Giving beauty gifts can seem daunting. From navigating all the brands to choosing shades, those of us who aren’t well versed in the world of makeup might be inclined to slowly back away. When done well, though, these can be some of the most personal gifts around.
We tapped Nabela Noor to round up the beauty gifts her friends will be getting this year, and with her guidance you can’t go wrong. Nabela’s two million collective followers depend on her expertise for everything that goes onto their faces, and she compiled ten gifts that will have the makeup junkie in your life asking, “how did you know?”
“This is what I wear on my face and what I love,” says Nabela. “My beauty essentials that I would gift to anybody that I love in their stocking.”
Her own gifting style is hyper-personalized, and we could learn a thing or two from her observant ways. “I feel like I’m a detective whenever it’s the holiday season because I’m just listening in on what my friends say they want or are taking an extra second to look at when they’re shopping,” says Nabela. “Maybe they just don’t splurge on themselves. I’m definitely that girl, so it’s always nice when people figure it out because everyone deserves a bit of a splurge.”
Scroll for Nabela’s thoughtful beauty picks for everybody. “Everything here is tried and true, these are my must-haves that I would absolutely gift to somebody else and give my seal of approval for.”
Why she chose it: “This is a bit sentimental and personal to me, and it’s also an amazing highlighter. I’m going to be gifting it to so many people in my life this Christmas, and it just made sense to include it. It’s what I wear every day and it’s personal to me because it’s a big achievement in my career.” Nabela says it’s something that really works for everybody, too. “It was made to be universal and great for anybody. There’s a lot of stuff that anyone can enjoy, a one size fits all type of thing.”
Why she chose it: “I included things that I can’t live without. Iconic beauty products that everyone should have in their beauty arsenal. The Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray is just iconic.”
Why she chose it: “One of my closest friends, Jackie Aina, collaborated on this Anastasia eyeshadow palette. I made sure to include it because you’ve gotta support your besties.”
Why she chose it: “My favorite foundation that’s just been classic in my beauty regimen is the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation.” Plus, this gift is a very personal one. “If you know somebody has trouble finding their foundation shade, Estée Lauder has a huge foundation range and helping find that perfect shade for them is so thoughtful.”
