You could go the classic round with a card and some flowers this Mother’s Day – but mom deserves the best, and there’s something about a beauty gift that shows you’ve gone the extra mile.
Here are some beauty gift ideas that are sure to please:
- Urban Decay has a new “Backtalk Palette” that’s like two makeup palettes in one. The travel-ready case holds eight nude-mauve, soft berry and muted rose eyeshadows on one side and four coordinating blush and highlighter shades on the other. From 3 Sheets (a satin pinky peach eyeshadow) to Cheap Shot (a medium pink-nude highlighter), the palette’s monochromatic shades will have both your eyes and cheeks speaking volumes. Busy moms on-the-go can apply makeup anywhere with the built in, detachable, double-sided mirror. The palette is $46, available exclusively at Sephora stores or at www.Sephora.com.
- Moms love manicures! Kendra Scott is a popular brand for jewelry, but did you know the company also offers nail lacquer? A fabulous gift would be one - or all - of the brand-new Summer 2018 collection shades. “Pink Agate” is the perfect balance of delicate and daring, “Magenta” is an energizing addition to mom’s look that’s sure to wow, and “Red Mother of Pearl” is just the thing to inspire fearless accessorizing. Each nail lacquer is $16, and is available at the Kendra Scott store at The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens, or online at https://www.kendrascott.com/new-now/trending-now/nail-lacquer.
- Hello Mama Box is the first monthly subscription box of its kind geared specifically towards for mothers. The “Maternal Wellness Self-Care” package encourages moms to replenish naturally at all stages of their journey! Each box contains 3-4 full size and travel size natural/organic products, affirmation cards, tea, and a functional gift. Subscriptions start at $35 a month for a 12 month subscription, and it’s for all moms to take a self-care moment in order to be the best, healthy caregivers they can be. You can purchase online at https://hellomamabox.com.
- Safe for expecting mothers, OSEA skincare is a luxury non-toxic skincare brand which stands for the elements: Ocean, Sun, Earth and Atmosphere.
