Hi, I'm Anastasiya

Who doesn’t want to spoil their lady, especially on an extra special day?

Listen, you can go to Sephora any day of the week and find something lovely for your girl. But, if you wanna make her feel extra special and need an idea for a Valentine’s Day gift, then consider taking a trip to your local Sephora and picking her up something sweet.

Now, whether or not your lovely lady frequently uses makeup, skincare, haircare, etc., it’s always a nice gift idea.

And coming from a certified Sephora girl like moi, I can guarantee that seeing a Sephora bag show up at my door is always going to get me excited…

And trust me, regardless of what you pick up, whether that be makeup, haircare, skincare, body care, or a fragrance, you’re guaranteed to find something that your girl is going to gush over.

I know I would.

So, before you start shopping, my recommendation is you get a sneak peek at your girl favorite’s list on the Sephora app, pop into a Sephora together and take pictures of the products she gets excited about, ask her which products she’s had her eye on lately, or simply take her to Sephora and tell her to pick her favorites…

Totally up to you on which method you prefer, but these are some of my suggestions that I think will work best for you.

Remember, what you think she might like or want might not be the case…especially when it comes to fragrance.

So I recommend getting an idea of something you know she’d like before you stop into the store, or just remember to ask for a gift receipt so she can exchange it if need be.

Other than that, I hope you know that your girl is going to be so giddy to receive a gift like this from you.

She already really likes you or better yet loves you, so the fact that you’re paying attention to her interests and want to make her feel extra special by gifting her something from one of her favorite stores is something she’ll always remember.

Let’s get into the list, shall we?

It’s a long one for a reason, there are so many goodies to choose from so I wanted to make sure you had a variety to choose from.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Category #1: Makeup

Pat McGrath Labs – Skin Fetish: Sublime Skin Highlighter

Oh my god, this highlighter from Pat McGrath is the highlighter of my dreams.

The shade is Nude Opal – coral champagne with iridescent pearls and looks divine on any skin tone. It’s absurdly beautiful and is a gorgeous gift all on its own. I highly recommend it, ESPECIALLY if you’ve got a makeup girl, she will love it…

If this is a little pricey for you, a great 2nd option is the Glow Seeker Highlighter from Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Natasha Denona – I Need a Nude Eyeshadow Palette

The ultimate neutral eyeshadow palette with extra sparkle for any occasion, day or night.

Goodness gracious, I love this palette. It may not seem very special when you look at it online, but I promise you, the versatility of the tones and the texture of the formula is superior to most eyeshadow palettes.

If you’ve got a girl that loves a good neutral palette and appreciates quality, then she’s gonna loveee this.

A great 2nd option is the mini version, My Mini Dream Eyeshadow Palette.

Patrick Ta – Major Headlines Double-Take Crème & Powder Blush Duo

I never thought I would gush over blush so much, but everything Patrick Ta touches turns to gold, especially his blush duos.

They’re extremely popular for a reason, they are beautiful on everyone, last forever, and the packaging is sleek and sexy.

A great 2nd option is the Gucci Luminous Matte Beauty Blush or BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush from Tower 28.

Charlotte Tilbury – Pillow Talk Beautifying Lip & Cheek Secrets Set

Always a winner in my eyes, everything Charlotte Tilbury is a wonderful gift.

Every product she creates not only looks gorgeous but applies gorgeously. You really can’t go wrong with anything from Charlotte Tilbury, but her Pillow Talk collection is extra special.

Fenty Beauty – Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

Probably my favorite lip gloss on the market.

The shade is beautiful, the texture is perfect, and it works for anyone and everyone.

Sephora Favorites – Fresh Face Makeup Kit

Such a great gift with a little bit of everything.

Rare Beauty – Nice & Neutral Lip Gloss and Liner Duo

A lovely shade and perfect duo.

Patrick Ta – Major Dimension Eyeshadow Palette

If your girl is looking for a quitessential neutral palette, this is it.

ROSE INC – The Cream Color Lip & Cheek Set

Such a sweet lip and cheek set. The color is gorgeous and I love everything from Rose Inc.

Charlotte Tilbury – Luxury Eyeshadow Palette

Ooof, the prettiest little eye palette.

It’s so pretty I’m saving it for my wedding day. It’s perfect for everyday, a special occasion, and for trips.

Category #2: Skincare

Fresh – Cleanse & Deeply Hydrate Set

Probably my favorite skincare brand of all time, you can’t go wrong with Fresh.

It’s luxurious, smells delightful, and feels like heaven.

Laneige – Berries ‘N Choco Kisses Set

I LOVE Laneige. Actually, everyone loves Laneige and there’s a reason for it.

Their lip products are not only super cute but really easy to just throw in your purse. Also a great gift for your girl if she’s not too into makeup, but loves skincare and luscious lips.

Gisou – Honey Infused Hydrating Lip Oil

The loveliest lip oil of all. Gisou is and will always be a fan favorite.

It’s a simple lip oil but looks and feels beautiful. It really feels like skincare rather than lip gloss. Very hydrating and ideal for everyone.

Tatcha – The Kissu Lip Mask

Who doesn’t love a luxurious lip mask, especially on Valentine’s Day?

This is an adorable little gift that is not only lovely for your lips, but a wonderful everyday lip mask for hydration.

Dior – Lip Glow Oil

Anything Dior is always a good idea.

The Lip Glow Oils have been around for a while, but are making their way into every girl’s makeup collection. So even though this is technically makeup, it barely feels like it and feels more like a designer lip oil.

We love it.

MERIT – Great Skin Instant Glow Serum with Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid

Such a beautiful and glowy serum, especially to wear under makeup.

This is definitely an underrated product, but trust me, it’ll make your girl’s skin glow with or without makeup.

Caudalie – Pores & Glow Duo Minis Set

Caudalie is my top favorite skincare brand from France, and I’ve yet to find anyone say anything negative about them.

This is a great mini set for someone who hasn’t tried it yet to see how your girl’s skin will react to it. I love the natural ingredients and have only had great experiences using their products, but when getting skincare for someone, it’s always great to start with minis to see if it works for them.

Laneige – Glowy Makeup Serum

Oooh, another underrated product that is such an essential for glowy skin.

Again, it can be worn with or without makeup and just melts into the skin.

Fresh – Rose Hydration Pore-Minimizing Mist

Like I said, Fresh is heaven in a bottle.

Your girl may or may not use a hydration spray on a regular basis, so this is a wonderful gift idea that she’ll love to use every day.

Category #3: Hair Care

Morroccanoil – Morroccanoil Treatment Hair Oil

My go-to and the one thing that makes my hair smell like a tropical vacation.

It’s extremely hydrating, especially for thick hair or anyone living in a dry climate. And did I mention it smells absolutely amazing as you walk by or snuggle?

JVN – Complete Scalp & Hair Oil, Airy Dry Cream and Recovery Serum Set

JVN isn’t as well known as it should be and that’s a real shame.

These three essentials are so delightful to use and so good for your girl’s hair. Get it, you wont regret it.

OUAI – Treatment Mask for Thick Hair

Who doesn’t love a great hair mask?

If your girl’s got thick hair, get her this mask, she’ll love it.

Gisou – Honey Infused Hair Perfume

I love this hair perfume.

Personally, I love using a perfume for my body, then a separate perfume specifically for my hair. And this is one I adore. It’s gentle and a bit sweet, so I think your girl will love it.

Drybar – The Half Shot Blow Dryer Brush + Prep Rally Hair Primer Set

If you wanna get the ultimate hair gift, this is it.

It not only comes with the famous Drybar Dryer Brush but with every mini product for priming her hair. I think this will work on most hair types, but just in case ask your girl if she already has something like this. This type of dryer brush is a lifesaver for me, so I can imagine your girl is gonna freak out with joy and excitement when she unwraps this.

Want bonus points? Get her a gift card to Drybar to see exactly how they use their products with her hair type and texture.

JVN – Complete Blowout Styling Milk

A lovely add on to her haircare routine.

She most likely has never heard of this product, so it’s a nice surprise.

Briogeo – Superfoods Mango + Cherry Balancing Shampoo + Conditioner Duo for Oil Control

Maybe you wouldn’t usually get your girl something like this, but I think this is a lovely gift. Plus, her hair will smell amazing, and Briogeo is known for its quality ingredients, so she’ll appreciate the thoughtful gift.

Color Wow – Extra Mist-ical Shine Spray

Who doesn’t want extra shiny, gorgeous hair?

I don’t think your girl has heard of this product…I recently just discovered it as well. So in that case, get your girl something that’ll bring vibrance to her hair.

OUAI – Melrose Place Eau De Parfum

This is a wonderful hair perfume.

The scent is unique and light and she can put it in throughout the day.

JVN – Complete Nourishing Hair Oil Shine Drops

Smells like summer in Italy.

Ahh, I love this hair oil, it instantly brightens my mood whenever I use it.

Category #4: Body Care

Tom Ford – Mini Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil

This is a product I use every day and love so much.

Sol de Janeiro – Beija Flor Jet Set

The perfect set.

Fenty Skin – Lil Butta Dropz Mini Whipped Oil Body Cream Trio

Everything Rihanna creates is worth it, especially this body cream trio.

Caudalie – Moisturizing Fig Body Oil Elixir

An extra step to a skincare routine that everyone should start including is a body oil.

If you’re going to use one body oil, it should be this one.

Herbivore – Coco Rose Exfoliating Body Scrub

Scent has always been my strongest sense, and when I can use a body scrub that melts into my skin and leaves my skin nourished and soft, it’s the best.

JLo Beauty – Body Discovery Trio with AHAs + Caffeine

A fantastic trio.

OUAI – Cleansing Scalp & Body Sugar Scrub

OUAI has created by favorite scents. This is a nice one for anyone.

Herbivore – Coconut Milk Bath Soak

Who doesn’t love a bath soak?

Fresh – Milk Body Cleanser

Add to cart, right now.

Rare Beauty – Find Comfort Hydrating Hand Cream

Sweet and simple, but absolutely necessary and a lovely reminder of you whenever she uses it.

Category #5: Fragrance

Dior – Miss Dior Eau de Parfum

One of my favorites, especially for everyday and in the warmer months. It’s never too heavy.

Versace – Bright Crystal Eau de Toilette

Definitely a stronger scent that Dior, but this is one my personal go-to’s for a night out.

Valentino – Mini Donna Born in Roma & Donna Born in Roma Intense Perfume Set

Valentino is the epitome of the romance in my eyes, and this mini set is the perfect introduction to Valentino, or to keep in her purse.

Marc Jacobs – Daisy Love Eau de Toilette

My top 3 perfumes of all time. It’s divine.

Jo Malone London – Mini Sakura Cherry Blossom/ English Pear & Freesia Set

Jo Malone London has been in the game for a long time and is worth it.

This mini set has two of my favorites from their collection, and is bound to be your new favorites too.

Armani – Mini My Way & Acqua di Gioia Perfume Duo

Has anyone every said they don’t love My Way? Never.

Jo Malone London – English Pear Discovery Trio Collection

What’s better than one product? An entire set. It’s a well though-out gift.

Prada – Mini Paradoxe Eau de Parfum Set

Ooof, this is a good one. It’s strong and sweet, but unique.

Glossier – Glossier You Eau de Parfum

I can’t get enough of Glossier’s You, I drown myself in it and still can’t get enough.

Sephora Favorites – Mini Deluxe Perfume Sampler Set

Can’t choose? Get a sampler set!

Great, you made it to the end of this post, way to go!

I hope there’s at least a handful of things that remind you of your girl, and make you excited to drive over to Sephora right now and pick something up for her for Valentine’s Day, or just as a mid-week treat.
