Here’s what I’m hoping the big guy will leave under the tree for me (and what I’ve giving my nearest and dearest beauty fiends):

An eye shadow smorgasbord: Urban Decay’s Vice Palette ($59, urbandecay.com). So many fun shadow shades to mix and match in a travel-friendly case. If this one is a little too funky for your giftee, try their more subdued (and extraordinarily popular) Naked 2 Palette ($50, urbandecay.com).

A lip gloss for every mood: From barely there nudes to juicy watermelon, this set of six Benefit High Flyin’ Glosses ($26, benefitcosmetics.com) can be given as a set or broken into stocking stuffers. If your giftee is less glossy, check out Fresh Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Trio ($28, Sephora.com).

A makeup case that sparkles: Kate Spade’s Glitterball Coin Purse ($50, katespade.com) may be meant for spare change, but it’s just the right size to stash a lipgloss and powder for on-the-go touch-ups.

For the dudes: He may think he’s doing just fine with the usual minimalistic grooming routine, but here’s a hint to step it up a notch: Jack Black Clean & Cool Body Basics Set ($56, getjackblack.com), or focus on his face with the brand’s Core Collection Gift Pack ($52, getjackblack.com).

For the nail polish addict: China Glaze’s Holiday Charms set (from $10, sallybeauty.com) includes miniature sizes of party-ready shades.

A gift that makes you pretty on the inside: A monetary donation to these charities helps make the world a more beautiful place:The Skin Cancer FoundationOperation SmileGirls Inc
