Trendologist-Approved Gift Guide: The Beauty Buff

Don't you just adore your beauty buff friend? She's the gal you go to when you're not sure which eye shadow shade you should wear for a night on the town with your girlfriends, and you better believe her expertise has made your evening skincare regime way more effective. Give your residential beauty junkie the thanks she deserves with one of these ultra chic presents.
Pedi Set Transformation Kit ($199): Every skincare guru already owns a Clarisonic brush (not to mention a bevy of brush heads and cleansers). But do they have the Pedi Set? Popular this year, think of this beautician-approved gizmo as a stay-at-home spa. And since this giftee is obsessed with all things beauty,  being pampered in the comfort of her own home is definitely up her alley. With a buffing head, smoothing disk, and several creams and oils, your favorite beauty junkie's feet will be stiletto ready in no time!  (Photo)
Kate Spade Silver Street Compact Mirror ($30):As every girl knows, makeup doesn't last forever.  From a faded lip to smudged eyeliner streak, it's imperative that a beauty buff keeps tabs on her face at all times. For a chic check-in, get your favorite cosmetics queen a stylish compact mirror. The silver exterior and classic shape are timeless while the fun saying gives this pick a funky touch.  (Photo)
DryBar Blowout in a Box ($199): Even if you have perfectly curled hair, you have to admit that there's something therapeutic about a salon-worthy blowout. While going to your favorite hair stylist on the daily is out of most girls' price ranges, this gift set will give your hair the TLC it deserves. So why wouldn't your favorite beauty junkie want this gift, too? Exactly. Not only has this dryer model been used by over 1,500 hair stylists, the array of hair products will give your loved one enviable locks.  (Photo)

Sephora Fragrance Sampler For Her ($65): Buying a new signature scent for a beauty expert is like a game of Russian Roulette: you never know how they'll react. Some perfumes are too fruity, too musky, or way too potent. Luckily, Sephora has concocted the perfect solution. With the Fragrance Sampler For Her, your loved one is able to test out a slew of different perfumes, including scents from Tocca, Marc Jacobs, Gucci, and Versace. Once your beauty queen has found the fragrance of her dreams, she can use the certificate from her set to redeem a full bottle of the perfume. If you're trying to find a perfect present for that special guy in your life, Sephora also has a male-approved version of this set(Photo)
Diptyque Paris Genevrier Candle ($60): If this person is the resident beauty connoisseur in your life, chances are that she (or he) loves a good scent. Not only are Diptyque candles one of the hottest home accessories of the moment, they smell amazing. My favorite? The brand's Genevrier candle, obviously.  With woodsy notes, this pick will make your loved one feel as if she (or he) is walking in a winter wonderland.  (Photo)
Vestige Lipstick Holder ($28): This pick is perfect for the makeup hoarder who has so many products, but minimal space. Not only is this a great way to organize a handful of lipsticks, sticking this on top of a vanity counter will save a lot of drawer space. Not to mention the brass design is retro chic.  (Photo)
Butter London Backstage Basics Nail Art Tool Kit ($18): Critics say that nail art is on the outs; however, your makeup-obsessed friend is bound to disagree. You know that she's been trying to nail (no pun intended) those stellar designs she's seen on Pinterest, so why not give her a helping hand? If the variety of brushes-- one for cleaning up, striping, and dotting-- haven't sold you, the budget-friendly price makes this pick an ideal stocking stuffer.  (Photo)
3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Minute Cosmetic Bag ($259):Having the hottest beauty products on the market is a must, and having an equally au courant cosmetic case is just as important. With the calf hair details and enough space to fit any beauty junkie's favorite picks, this cosmetic case is basically a no brainer.  Not so jazzed about the leopard print? This cosmetic case is also available in solid leathers.  (Photo)
