{Giftable} Holiday Beauty Essentials under $40

First off, I can't believe it's officially the holiday season, with Thanksgiving and black Friday just next week I'm starting to realize it about time for me to get my act together and start sharing holiday favorites and essentials. This week, we're kicking things off with beauty and a little help from Katy Perry's new scent, Mad Love (I'm giving one away below, go enter!).

Mad Love does not disappoint. As a gal about super flirty feminine scents this fragrance basically does it for me. I'm all for the playfully addictive floriental fruity fragrance of Lady of Apple Sorbet, Mara Strawberry and Pink Grapefruit with middle notes of Peony Petal, sun-kissed Jasmine and the Bleeding heart flower. Warm up with indulgent coconut wood, skin musk and sandalwood. Love a girly, fruity scent? This is for you. The soft pink bottle and marbleized cap packaging makes it super gift-able, hello perfect fit for a stocking stuffer idea, you can easily find it at Walgreens. With a price tag under $30 I don't feel guilting treating myself to a bottle as well. 

A spritz of Mad Love is the perfect finishing touch to any holiday beauty look. I personally loved it paired with a soft nude lip, a warm neutral smokey eye, bold lashes and glowing skin (grab my essentials below). 

As the season moves into holiday we start to think about adding just a touch more glamour to our beauty routine and I'm sharing just a few of my Holiday Beauty Essentials. Gift to the beauty mavens in your life or treat yourself to something pretty this holiday season, you won't be disappointed...

(psst. they're all $40 or less!)
