Need a Mother’s Day Beauty Gift? We’ve Got You Covered

05-MothersDayGiftGuide-Thumbnail05-MothersDayGiftGuide-Header

Our mothers and mother-figures in our lives have taught us a lot. They’ve taught us how to talk and walk, they’ve taught us about love and relationships, and they’ve taught us all about beauty. Even if you didn’t grow up with a glam mom who spent hours each week on her hair and makeup and had the product stash to prove it, chances are you’ve absorbed beauty habits and tricks from her anyway.

Our beauty rituals say a lot about who we are and where we come from, so to celebrate the women who helped make us who we are, we’ve put together a Mother’s Day Gift Guide. Whether your mom or mother figure is the ultimate beauty lover or just deserves a little self-care, we know she’ll love these beauty gifts (while you’re at it, order an extra for yourself—we know you’ll love it, too). Keep scrolling to see the beauty gifts your mom deserves this Mother’s Day, and head over to IPSY Shop to shop these gifts and more through May 9th.
