To make your holiday shopping a little easier, try our Mamiverse Holiday Beauty Guide. Department and cosmetics stores are chock-full of enticing gift ideas for the women in your life, from fragrance to skincare to makeup. But where to start?

Start with a good foundation
Skincare gifts often get passed over in favor or showy makeup palettes. But a flawless face starts with great skin. Here are our top skincare picks:

  • For supremely improved skin quality, Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme is a “multi-action” moisturizer that delivers benefits wherever your skin needs them, whether increased suppleness, fine line correction, dehydration and more. $50-$75.

  • Who likes to admit to tired-looking eyes and dark circles? Still, Repechage Opti-Firm Eye Contour visibly corrects these common eye “issues” and brightens the eye area immediately. $59.

  • SinCare offers skincare with a sense of humor. What was your sin? Smoking? Sun damage? Bad diet? There’s a product to address the specific needs of your sinned-upon skin. $80.

  • For faces over 50, Vichy’s new Novadiol GF line is specially formulated to tackle skin problems related to hormonal changes, and it minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. $42-$55.

Then add the color
Now that your giftee’s skincare needs have been addressed, it’s time to shower her with some color—in the form of these great makeup options.

  • Start with a smooth base. Vitamin and antioxidant enriched, and with SPF 30, Lancome’s Bienfait Teinté Beauty Balm provides lightweight, natural looking coverage and color correction. $45.

  • Coordinate eyes and lips with Clinique’s Sixteen Shades of Beige, a new line of pretty, soft beiges, from rosy to peachy. These colors are really versatile, and provide a finished, but not overly “made-up” look. $12.50-$36.
