The Ultimate Beauty Lover’s Gift Guide: James Charles, Patrick Starrr, & More Reveal Top Picks (EXCLUSIVE)
The holidays are quickly approaching, and that means we’re running out of time to shop for presents! If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for the beauty lover in your life, we’ve got you covered! James Charles, Patrick Starrr, and more of the biggest beauty influencers shared their top holiday gift picks exclusively with Life & Style at the first-ever American Influencer Awards on Nov. 18. Watch the video below to see what Lipstick Nick, Nicol Concilio, Jake Warden, and Guy Tang suggested!
Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic also revealed his favorite product from Kim’s contour line, if you want to know what to buy for a fan! “The medium contour stick!” he gushed. “I love the consistency of that. I depot them and put them in pots and use them with brushes. You can see the skin through it and I love to contour, but to contour naturally, and that product is perfect for that.” Erin Robinson had another suggestion if you’re into celebrity makeup lines: “If you can get your hands on the Fenty holiday collection, that’s what I want! Santa, are you listening?”
The stunning Liane V also weighed in on her holiday faves, suggesting fans shop her collab with G by Guess. “My favorite product of my collection is the silver jumpsuit,” she revealed. “It’s very comfortable, it’s a statement piece and it just reminds me of being in the disco, it’s so cute!” Need some more clothing ideas? Alisha Marie says “Mid-rise joggers with a matching Boxy hoodie from Hollister” are the perfect gift. “I’m all about comfort this season and every season! These seem like they would be the best comfy clothes to work and lounge in.” Meanwhile, Niki DeMartino says “”I love bulky bombers! Warm and cool tones are my favorite!”
Amanda Diaz suggested that you help your beauty bestie shine bright this holiday season with a killer highlighter. “I’ve been loving Rodeo Drive by Ofra, it’s my favorite of all time, it’s amazing!” Some other things topping her wish list? “The Carli Bybel Misguided collab that just came out and the Pretty Little Thing Kourtney Kardashian collab is beautiful and very form fitting, I love that!”
If you aren’t sure what your pal needs, Rebecca Zamolo suggests buying them Egyptian Magic skin cream. “I use it every night and I wake up with my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated,” she explains. “The best part is you don’t need to use much (a little goes a long way) so it can last for a while.”
The only thing the beauty vloggers were more excited for than Christmas was the American Influencer Awards! For many, this was the first time they would be celebrated for their craft at an awards show, and they were all so excited to be able to come together and support each other! If you missed it, you can watch the full show, here.
