As a makeup artist and beauty blogger, respectively, my sister and I start making our beauty holiday lists well before the season is upon us. Whether its stocking up on an old favorite or discovering a new must have, out of all the products Ele uses in her kit, or we have in our personal makeup bag, these are the stocking stuffers that you should tell Santa that you want. Perfect gifts for young, old, men, woman, and everyone in between.

I don’t normally buy into trends especially cutesy animal shaped packaging that’s pink, but I don’t know what came over me upon learning Elena had a stopover in Seoul. This meant Korean beauty products. I searched the internet, frantically emailing Elena screen shots and links of what I wanted before her 4 hour layover ended.

DECIEM – THE ABNORMAL BEAUTY COMPANY
“What’s this bustling energy in here?” “I know it feels like a San Fran start up!” DECIEM’s head office in Toronto’s East end has a cool energy. Elena and I could feel it the moment we walked through the door.
I love discovering brands. Sometimes I walk into an apothecary, I scroll across a nail polish line on Instagram, or Elena sends me photos from a cool boutique in Bangkok. The latter is how I discovered cosmetics company Uslu Airlines. My sister knows what I like.
