Holiday Makeup Gifts for the Drop-Dead Gorgeous

Share this:

The time of the year for buying winter holiday gifts is once more upon us. Nothing can put a damper on the season quicker than looking for beauty gifts suitable for the glamorous ghouls in your life. What should be a pleasurable experience is made eternally frustrating by searching for something special in a world that seemingly worships rose gold packaging, nude lipsticks, and the billionth iteration of the neutral brown palette. In the spirit of the season, we did the work for you and put together this showcase of darkling-approved beauty products. Don’t forget to pick up some goodies for yourself while you’re at it.
