2013 Holiday Beauty Shopping Guide

The holiday shopping season will officially begin with Black Friday, and for many, so too does the pressure to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your holiday shopping list. The Makeup Examiner is sharing a few of her tips, from apps to product suggestions, that will help ease the stress of what should be a joyful time of the year.

Although you may be focused on the beautynistas and suavenistas in your life, don’t limit your gift giving to beauty products. A new set of makeup brushes is always a welcome gift, as are men’s grooming sets. Peruse through the List to find helpful holiday shopping hints, and don’t forget to check out “Beauty codes for beautiful Cyber Monday deals” and “Birchbox holiday happenings and Cyber Monday deals” for even more ideas and holiday shopping discounts!
