Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that's a full month in which we'll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life.
The beauty sphere is an oversaturated beast. If it seems daunting, that's because it is! It's also jam-packed with beauty vloggers and influencers, like James Charles, who dominated YouTube in 2019. So chances are you have a person in your life hoping to hop on that runaway train and make it big. Perhaps a cousin who is always going live on Instagram while doing her makeup or a friend who keeps a running list in his Notes app of potential beauty content ideas. To give them the best start possible, I've compiled a comprehensive starter kit of beauty gift ideas that will entitle you to at least 5 percent of their future royalties.
From Rihanna's and Victoria Beckham's makeup to face masks that make for the perfect Instagram selfie to random items that no one really needs, but look great in the back of a YouTube tutorial, ahead, the 14 picks for the aspiring vloggers in your life.
Charlotte Tilbury, Hollywood Flawless Filter, $44, available at Sephora.
The best product for mixing in foundation, highlighting, wearing alone, slathering all over your body, etc. You don't think you need it until you have it.
Victoria Beckham. Lid Lustre, $36, available at Victoria Beckham.
A very luxurious lid-topper from Posh Spice herself.
Nurse Jamie, UpLift Facial Massaging Beauty Roller, $69, available at Nordstrom.
I'm still skeptical that face rollers actually accomplish anything, but they do look very nice on Instagram!

A great option for those who love to take selfies while masking.
Youth to the People, Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask, $48, available at Sephora.
Yes, the beauty market is oversaturated with face masks, but this Allure "Best of Beauty" pick is too good to pass up.

Why wear normal eye patches when you can wear gold eye patches?
