I hit up so many amazing holiday previews recently and from SpaceNK (who by the way is offering some great discounts and has a curated holiday page HERE), Sephora (my complete Sephora guide is HERE), Ulta to department stores and beyond here are some of my favorite beauty stocking stuffers I’ve scouted. You can also head to glamour.com to see some of my other holiday beauty picks!
