(StatePoint) The holiday shopping season can mean long lines, crowded malls and uncertainty about what gifts to buy-- but shopping for all the women in your life doesn’t have to be a source of stress.

The perfect gift could be right under your nose and not at the mall. What woman doesn’t want to look and feel beautiful? Enter a beauty brand, such as Mary Kay, that not only understands women, but makes it easy for you too - it’s like having your very own personal shopper. 

Treat everyone on your “nice list” right this season with tips from Mary Kay Glam Squad beauty experts.

Festive Reds

Every woman can and should wear red – lips that is. “Red lips just scream festive!” says makeup artist, Raychel Wade. “I love playing up lip color during the holidays.”

The Mary Kay Viva Red! Set, contains all of the essentials for stunning red lips, including age-fighting lip primer, a bright red lipstick, red lip gloss for shine and lip liner for staying power.

Merry and Bright

A recent survey by Mary Kay found that 90 percent of Americans feel more confident when they have a “good skin day.”

Give the gift that every woman dreams about: a vibrant, clear complexion. Instead of a spa gift card, consider a gift that keeps on giving, such as the Pamper Plus Spa Set, including a gel mask and 3-in-1 cleanser.  This three-step routine makes it easy to achieve beautiful, glowing skin. 

“For busy moms wanting to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, or for students always on-the-go, an easy skin care routine is crucial, and makes for the perfect holiday gift,” says aesthetician Maria Lekkakos.

Scent of the Season

“A new scent is all about making memories and capturing special moments,” says celebrity stylist Suzi Grgurich.

Choose a memorable gift by opting for something special for women of all ages, such as the Mary Kay Limited-EditionThinking of You Holiday Set. The set includes eau de parfum, moisture rich shower crème and a fashionable, functional parfum pendant for on-the-go fragrance.

“The perfume pendant is a beautiful addition,” Grgurich adds. “I like to keep a small perfume with me in my purse, and this just puts it closer to my heart!”

Dash of Color

“Having pops of color in makeup is so on-trend right now,” says beauty vlogger, Caitlin Ellsworth of Glamourista16.

Look for a set appropriate for any skin tone, such as one with rich plum shades. The Mary Kay Limited-Edition Purple Passion Set makes it easy to create a day look and transition it to night, with the perfect combination of plum-colored mascara, a trio of eye shadow and an eye crayon.

With more than 15 holiday sets and a wide variety of other products to choose from, Mary Kay has a present for everyone on your gift list. For more ideas, visit www.MaryKay.com.

Get the gifts they really want, without the yearly shopping battle, and enjoy the holidays stress-free, once and for all.
