13 Beauty Gifts Our Editors Are Giving This Year

It’s November, which means scrolling through curated gift guides is as habitual as reaching for a sugar cookie when 3 p.m. hits. To switch things up from the highly-specific lists that break down the best gifts from Target or what to get your dad based on his star sign — both of which are pretty damn clutch — we’ve decided to make it more personal. Because everyone knows that the best gifts come from the heart.

Ahead, we’re breaking down the full list of beauty-related gifts our R29 editors are actually wrapping in ribbon and giving our loved ones this year. Warning: If you’re a mom, little sister, or SO of our team, stop here or you might ruin the surprise. Everyone else, go ahead and scroll through for our picks and you just might find that elusive gift you were looking for.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

“Of all the various hydrating products that have entered his orbit via me — and, because we share a 900-sq.-ft. apartment, there have been many — my boyfriend prefers First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Cream above all. He goes through the 6 oz tubs at an alarming rate… but then again, I have personally witnessed him scoop out a handful, slather it over his face and neck, then his arms and hands, then his eczema-prone ankles in a single motion, so maybe I shouldn’t be so surprised. He’ll get a lot of use out of the full-size jar in this set, and he dabbles in a serum from time to time, so I imagine this one will enter his rotation, too. I’m sure he won’t mind that I intend on taking the cleanser, mask, and peel pads for myself.” —Rachel Krause, Senior Beauty Writer

First Aid Beauty Skin Summit, $48, available at Sephora

— PAID —

“This lip gloss treasure chest is going straight to my sister, who — like me — has recently come to re-embrace the glossy, vinyl lip look in all its ’90s glory. Between the pearly light pinks and vampy dark plums, there’s a shade in the mix for any occasion from the casual brunch to the glitzy night out. Not to mention, a minty, moisturizing gloss is way more fun than regular old lip balm when warding off winter’s chapped lips. You can thank me later, sis!” — Jennifer Mulrow, Fashion & Beauty Writer

Beautycounter Mini Lip Gloss Vault, $89, available at Beautycounter

“I have created a monster out of my mother by spoiling her with beauty gifts — now she just cuts to the chase every time I see her by asking if I “have anything Tom Ford” for her. The answer is generally no, but for the vague, non-denominational holidays my family celebrates every year, she’ll be getting something from the king of luxury. Specifically, this fancy trio of Boys lipsticks, in three mom-approved shades of soft rose and mauve.” — Krause

Tom Ford Beauty Boys Soft Lipstick Trio, $98, available at Nordstrom

“The beauty of this gift is that it’s a gift that keeps on giving: I could gift any of the nine soaps individually, or I could gift the entire box to someone who is bound to keep a few for themselves and then gift the rest away, even if they say they’re going to keep them all. For my own sake, I’ll be taking the first approach and pass the shea butter-infused soaps out like (sexy, artfully illustrated) candy at the next holiday gathering.” — Krause

Claus Porto Mini Soaps Gift Box, 9 x 50g, $70, available at Net-A-Porter

“If money were no object, I’d give one of these pillows to everyone I know. But money is an object, so I’ll have to be discerning about who deserves to sleep on the most luxe mulberry silk, which not only keeps hair and skin safe from the usual pillowcase wreckage but also absorbs light — kind of like sleeping on a sleep mask. It’s also just wildly comfortable, and doesn’t get all hot throughout the night the way some other silk pillowcases do.” — Krause

Discover Night NIGHT Pillow™, $150, available at Discover Night

“My holiday isn’t started until I light up one of my Nest holiday candles. This year, the new scent is the Sparkling Cassis, which is the perfect blend of cranberry and Champagne. I’m gifting these minis to my friends who travel often. The tiny votives are easily thrown into a suitcase to freshen up a foreign hotel room.” — Jessica Cruel, Deputy Beauty Director

NEST Fragrances Petite Candle Trio Set, $64, available at Nordstrom

“As I approach 30, sleep is becoming more and more important. I already own the This Works Oil Diffuser, and it’s made such a difference in my sleep routine (along with my favorite sleep tea from WelleCo). Now, I can lay down for a full 7.5 hours, even if I’m anxious about a big meeting or coming off hours scrolling through Instagram. I want to gift that same peace of mind to my younger sister this season, and this set is packed with five lavender-scented products and a sleep mask.” — Cruel

This Works the big sleep (6 piece), $100, available at DermStore

“I’m not good at committing to gadgets and gizmos in my beauty routine (isn’t using 10 products time-consuming enough?). But if Viola Davis is using this machine every night — and she told me once that she does — then I need to get me, my mom, and my grandma one.” — Cruel

NuFACE Gold Trinity® Complete Skin Toning Collection, $325, available at Sephora

“Each of my best friends has a signature lip color. One loves purples, another goes for red, a few like nudes, and me, I’m all about vampy brown. For me, lipstick minis are the best part of the holiday season because I’ve never finished a full tube of lipstick in my life and I can split up a set like this so that every one of my girlfriends is satisfied.” — Cruel

Stila With Flying Colors Mini Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick, $39, available at Sephora

“It wasn’t until my baby sister went off to college this past September that I realized she’s not a baby anymore. She’s no into makeup, but she often calls me complaining about her skin, asking which cheap moisturizer she should buy on Amazon. We deal with similar skin issues because of genetics — uncomfortably dry in the winter, with pesky hormonal breakouts along the jawline — and since everything in this four-piece Tatcha set works for me, I know she’ll love working these shiny polished bottles into her routine for her second semester.” — Megan Decker, Beauty Editorial Assistant

Tatcha The Starter Ritual SetUltra-Hydrating for Dry Skin, $59, available at Tatcha

“Hair accessories make the best holiday gifts. No one buys them for themselves — because they’re so seasonal — so unwrapping a soft velvet bow scrunchie is always met with squeals of excitement. These ones are Jennifer Behr -level chic — but at a fraction of the price — so I’m gifting one to my four best friends. The hardest part is picking who gets which color. ” — Decker

Chloe + Isabel Velvet Bow Scrunchie, $30, available at Chloe + Isabel

“Skin care can be tricky to give — especially if you’re gifting to someone who may take your generous clay mask as a sign that they have oily skin. That’s why I stick with products that don’t just work for every skin type, but come in beautiful packaging that can double as bathroom decor. This kit from Herbivore ticks all the boxes. It comes with three products, the brand’s Rosewater Hibiscus Facial Spray, Pink Cloud Moisturizer, and Prism Toner. The trio will gently slough away dull skin and hydrate.” — Mi-Anne Chan, Beauty Writer

Herbivore Botanicals Rosewater Hydration Trio, $59, available at Sephora

“As a beauty writer, my friends love to ask me for BeautyBlenders all year long, as if I’m a makeup sponge dispenser. That’s why this year I decided to get my bestest of friends this set that doesn’t just give two of what they’re always asking for, but also serves as an adorable reminder of our friendship. And on top of that, the heart-shaped packaging doubles as a storage with a perforated back that allows for the sponges to get air and dry properly.” — Thatiana Diaz, Beauty Writer

Beautyblender beautyblender BBF, $40, available at Sephora

“My roommate and I are going our separate ways as our lease comes to an end this holiday season, so I want to get her a gift that serves as both a housewarming and Christmas gift. What’s a better present than a holiday set of masks that she can store in her bathroom cabinet? In my time living with her, I observed that she was a huge fan of Peter Thomas Roth masks, so I knew this set would be perfect to keep her stocked up in her new place. And when I go over to catch up, we can have mask and wine night.” — Diaz

Peter Thomas Roth Mask Frenzy, $75, available at Ulta Beauty

Why This Fashion Blogger Started The #MakeMySize Movement

Shopping, as fun as it can be, is a real pain in the ass for lots of women. Not necessarily because we don’t have time or are picky about what we like to wear, but because of the crappy way clothes fit.

For so many women, trying to find clothes that properly fit is practically impossible. Lots of companies use tactics like vanity sizing, which leads to nothing but annoyance and confusion (if you’re a size 8 at one store, how can you then be a size 14 somewhere else?).

So it’s no wonder that shopping, especially for women who wear anything larger than a size 8, can be a truly frustrating experience. While many women openly lament the lack of clothing options for those who wear larger sizes, one woman is taking the conversation a step further.

Katie Sturino, who runs the fashion blog The 12ish Style, has started the hashtag #makemysize, which is set up to openly call out brands for not making more inclusive clothing sizes that women so desperately need. Sturino started the hashtag after an online clothing order she received was full of clothing that didn’t fit. Understandably pissed the fuck off, she took to her Instagram account to bring attention for her all-too-common problem.

In an Instagram post highlighting her other incredibly popular hashtag, #SuperSizeTheLook, Katie shared her motivation for starting #MakeMySize:

“I polled you guys and 97% of you felt that there were not enough cute clothes in your size. @huntermcgrady and I are both wearing a US16 and I can’t tell you the frustration when I’m shopping (and I’m a blogger! In NYC!) So while I applaud brands who are making changes to include more sizes, I’m going see if we can work together to let other designers know that they have a whole demographic that wants to shop. Please tag a brand you wish made your size below! I’m starting the #MakeMySize Movement!”

Instagram Photo

In an interview with Health, Sturino further elaborated on the struggle that lead her to start this movement.

“I had an online shopping order come in and nothing fit me,” she explained. “I’m a fashion blogger in New York City and I have a really tough time finding something to wear. And if I have a tough time, imagine how the regular woman who’s not a fashion blogger feels. I’m hoping that designers will take note and extend their sizes. And if they don’t already have plans to introduce extended sizing, I want them to see how many beautiful women they’re missing out on.”

Instagram Photo

The comment section of her IG posts call out the many brands that don’t make clothing to accommodate larger sizes, even though most American women are somewhere around a size 14. Of course, many are higher end brands, but some women called out more mainstream brands for relegating much of their plus-sized clothing options to online retail spaces, where it is hard to know if the clothes will fit when they arrive.

“What I find so frustrating is they may have my size but it’s ONLINE ONLY! Why can’t it be available in the store too??!!” reads one comment on Sturino’s original post.

Instagram Photo

Many women on Instagram have embraced the #MakeMySize campaign and for good reason. Size should not be a deterrent from wearing cute clothing that makes you feel good. It is not hard for brands to know that the average American woman wears a size 14, so why are they still designing exclusively for women who are a size two? And forget about women who have a larger chest or butt/thighs. These are commonly the reasons women need to adjust their clothing size.

Instagram Photo

“Awareness: finding pants &/or jeans when you have curves is hella nightmare. Many brands don’t make pants for curvy girls. They’re just pencil straight, not even stretch. 1. It is even more difficult to find clothes that fit when people tell you you need to loose weight in order to find clothes that fit. Curvy womxn don’t need to loose weight. & 2. We shouldn’t be obliged to go online to find clothes our size. The #FashionIndustry needs to make our size. Period,” reads a post from Instagram user @allofmylights.

Instagram Photo

It is absolute bullshit that in 2018, women still can’t find clothing that is fashionable and fits them. Your size shouldn’t be a barrier. Any woman should be able to walk into a store they love and walk out with something that fits and makes them look and feel amazing.

If more brands don’t get the memo, then they’re behind the times. Katie Sturino and #MakeMySize are hopefully going to force those conversations to happen. We hope the fashion industry is listening.

Meghan Markle’s beauty evolution, from her Deal or No Deal days to becoming a British royal

Meghan Markle’s beauty evolution, from her Deal or No Deal days to becoming a British royal


Meghan Markle’s beauty evolution, from her <em>Deal or No Deal</em> days to becoming a British royal

Meghan Markle has recently undergone a major beauty and fashion transformation. From Hollywood actress to British royalty. It’s been a real treat to see how Meghan‘s new role has inspired her beauty and fashion looks.

The former Suits actress has always had a timeless style, but there’s definitely been a shift in the last few years. Lately, it’s been rare to see Meghan wear bold makeup, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t played around with her looks before becoming a royal. While she’s embraced a more natural look more recently, it’s fun to see her past beauty choices.

Let’s take a look at Meghan Markle’s beauty evolution, shall we?
1. 2006
Paul Drinkwater/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images

Meghan Markle hit the scene as a briefcase model on the game show Deal or No Deal. Her makeup was more on the heavy side. It was matte, with a bit of contouring. Her eyes were also heavily defined, though not overlined, with big, fluttery lashes. It was super glam.

2. 2006
Rebecca Sapp/WireImage for Ink PR Group/Getty Image

At an event for The National Kidney Foundation, we saw the very beginning of Meghan’s legendary messy bun. She paired it with smoky blue eyeliner and a pink lip. She looked super youthful and sweet.

3. 2007
Amy Tierney/WireImage for Primary Action/Getty Images

Meghan attended the Golden Globes gifting suite with long, wavy hair. Those parted long bangs were so 2007, too. She was also rocking a similar eyeliner and pink cheek look as the year before.

4. 2009
Amanda Edwards / Stringer/Getty Images

At the DPA pre-Emmy Lounge, she opted for a more natural look, one that we’re used to seeing today. Her makeup was a lot more subtle with a hint of blush and minimal eye makeup.

5. 2010
Charley Gallay / Stringer/Getty Images

Meghan visited the Some Kind-a Gorgeous Style and Beauty Lounge at the Chateau Marmont. She looked like a total L.A. cool-girl. Her look was casual and sleek. Meghan kept her hair straight and paired it with soft, pastel makeup. The pale pink blush, icy eyeshadow, and lip gloss were very on-trend for the time.

6. 2011
Michael Kovac /Getty Images

Looking like the duchess we know today, Meghan arrived at the Anti-Defamation League Entertainment Industry Awards Dinner with fresh-looking makeup. She kept her lips nude and her blush subtle. Her hair was also longer than we had seen it, and she added layers and caramel highlights, too.

7. 2011
Charley Gallay / Stringer/Getty Images

At the launch of Alexa Chung’s Madewell Collection, Meghan went for her signature natural look, but she spiced it up with a frosty pink lip. It gave her a fun, summery vibe.

8. 2012
Alexandra Wyman / Getty Images

In 2012, Meghan started upping the glam factor. Her dress was more sophisticated, and it perfectly matched her long, wavy hair. We also love her flirty, sultry eye makeup and bold brows.

9. 2012

The pop of purple on Meghan’s eyelid was a fun twist to her usual style. She definitely brought some glitz to her look without really straying from her aesthetic. We love the combination of her simple, slicked-back ponytail with her makeup.

Meghan gave us a ’70s vibe with her retro-inspired outfit, sultry makeup, and big curls.

Meghan showed up at a Golden Globes After-Party with elegant and timeless makeup. She wore her hair in what has now become her signature loose chignon, minus the middle hair part. Her skin looked radiant and glowy.

The actress was an absolute vision at the 2013 Elton John AIDS Foundation Enduring Vision Benefit. She looked positively regal. Her hair was in its trademark chignon. Her makeup was even more subtle than ever before.

We love how sweet and subtle Meghan’s cat-eye was at the NBC Upfronts. She kept her eye makeup glam with false lashes and black eyeliner. Her hair was also simple, but not boring.

Meghan brought the glamour to the CFDA Awards in 2015. She went a bit heavier on the foundation and added a dramatic smoky eye, but she perfectly paired it with a nude lip. Her makeup didn’t look caked on or overdone; it was perfect for the occasion. And by flipping her hair to the side, she gave it a touch of sultriness.

Meghan briefly brought back her baby pink lip and rosy blush. It complemented her wispy false lashes beautifully. Since her hair was pulled back, it really let her features shine.

In one of her most dramatic makeup looks yet, Meghan wore a berry red lip with a bold smoky eye and loose waves.

Meghan clearly loved wearing long, full lashes in 2015 and 2016. It gave her a lot of room to go more natural with the rest of her makeup. The soft pink lip, her rose-colored cheeks, and full brows gave her an Audrey Hepburn-esque look. She is still rocking this style today.

During this time, Meghan was dating Prince Harry. She went as his date to the opening ceremonies of the Invictus Games. She had her classic middle hair part and fresh-faced makeup. Her eye makeup was a bit heavier than usual, but she looked smoldering. She was starting to skew more conservative in her outfits but still stayed true to her own aesthetic.

Who can forget how gorgeous Meghan looked when she and Prince Harry announced their engagement? Her hair was voluminous and perfectly wavy. She even had subtle caramel highlights. Her makeup was natural, and very much styled the way we’re used to seeing her now.

Christmas 2017 was the first time we saw Meghan in a very British look. She, of course, knocked it out of the park. She also kept her hair simple with loose waves. Her beige coat and fascinator are what really stole the show.

Meghan spent the winter before her wedding going to royal events. While these would’ve intimidated most of us, she stayed true to herself the entire time. She refused to let go of her beloved messy bun. Fly-aways be damned!

We can’t forget Meghan’s royal wedding beauty look. She started a new trend of fresh-faced bridal beauty. She had the most natural makeup in the history of royal weddings and she even had her go-to chignon. It was flawless and unforgettable.

Post-wedding, Meghan has maintained her style beautifully. Rumor has it that she does her own makeup, and we love that she’s kept it subtle yet sexy.
