Tu Es Belle: Mother's Day Gifts To Celebrate Her Beauty


If you're looking for a memorable gift for Mom, you are lucky: There are some amazing options out there that celebrate Mom's inner and outer beauty. 

In this selection, we've scoured some wonderful options created by both indie and commercial brands to match every single budget. Let's admit it: Although the best gifts are those which don't come with a price tag, Mom will surely appreciate a little reminder of how beautiful you think she is.



1. Miss Sicily Lipsticks by Dolce & Gabbana ($36/each ): Sensual, emotional, and comfortable, these lipsticks are Dolce & Gabbana's particular homage to women. Inspired by the feminity of Sicilian women, each of the 16 hues in the collection celebrates feminity with buildable long-lasting pigmentation and a dewy sensual finish. Pictured here are Rosalia (the perfect vibrant pink lipstick to compliment brunette's sultry side), Angelica (the perfect nude for every single occasion), and Agata (a deep brick red that celebrates feminity and sensuality.) This is the perfect gift for that fashion-forward Mom who loves to experiment with colors. Available at Saks.com.

2. Seaweed Exfoliating Soap by Pevonia Botanica ($17): One of the best-kept secrets of many European ladies, seaweed is one of the gentlest and most efficient skin detox methods. This soap created by Pevonia Botanica combines the hydrating power of shea butter and almond oil with the detox effect of Fucus Vesiculosus seaweed to create a soap superhero. Designed to deeply cleanse, it helps remove dead skin cells, stimulates circulation, and smoothes cellulite and skin texture. Plus, the scent is so subtle and delicious that it will give Mom permission to start a new beauty ritual where she can pay attention to the person that matters most: Herself.

3. Elite Smoke Palm Brush by Artis ($65): If your Mom lives and breathes beauty, she'll adore this extra-large palm brush created by Artis, the company that disrupted the beauty industry with its designs. Created to deliver a flawless application of any makeup and skincare products on the face and the body, this wondificent brush was invented to fit comfortably in the palm of the hand for superb control. As it literally can do anything, it is the perfect fit for the Mom on the go that needs to pack light. You don't believe me? Just take a look at the list of things that this brush can do: Apply foundation, concealer, setting powder, bronzer, and blush. It also is perfect to contour face and body, as its soft bristles and sleek design allow it to reach every single crevice. Does Mom fear that sunscreen will ruin her perfectly-applied makeup? The Artis Palm Brush can help by distributing it in a thin, flawless layer that won't bulge. Does Mom worry about self-tanner streaks? This amazing brush helps distribute product evenly in the face and the body, making it a superhero in any vanity. If this weren't enough, Mom will surely love the feeling of the ultra-soft fibers on the skin, which offer a quick and soft massage just when she needs to de-stress! This is the ideal gift for the Glam Mom on the go.

4. Daily Renewal Treatment by Golden Door ($88): Let's admit it: Moms are busy creatures. In fact, they are always tending to the needs of others, so they privilege beauty routines that don't take too much of their precious free time to show results. On this note, I have some pretty good news for you: The legendary Golden Door has recently launched of the best serums in the market. Rich in all-natural Alpha Hydroxy, Lactic, Glycolic, Malic and Tartaric Acids, all skin types can benefit from this beauty superhero in a bottle. The cutting-edge formula of the Daily Renewal Treatment gently removes pollutants (aka nasty toxins), reduces the appearance of fine lines, smoothes discoloration areas and reduces the size of the pores for a clear and radiant complexion. Plus, 100% of the profits of Golden Door are donated to charity to end child abuse. This is the perfect gift for that busy Mom that values helping others with her beauty choices.

5. AM to PM candle gift set by Brooklinen ($59): Sometimes, everything Mom needs is an excuse to devote some time to herself. This candle collection from Brooklinen features four 3.5oz votive scented candles that will give her some much-needed respite, as their scents are designed to transport her mind to happy and faraway places four times a day. Wake has the fresh smell of the sea, to start the day thinking of a glorious summer holiday. Magic Hour recreates a sunlit rose garden, with notes of pink pepper, rosehip, and sandalwood. Afternoon Delight is a farmhouse made scent, with notes of freshly cut tomatoes and pear. Finally, Nightcap has notes of blood orange and bourbon, to incite relaxation before going to bed. These clean and inviting scents are a great gift for that Mom that needs to be reminded that she has the right to unwind and take some time for herself.





6. First Blush Makeup Collection by GloMinerals ($58): Does Mom scramble in her makeup bag to find which hues look best on her? We've all been there. That is why I fell in love with this personalized color palette that celebrates an airy, youthful innocence. Combining soft pink hues and fresh neutrals, this curated collection of professional makeup products takes off the guesswork of a perfect rejuvenating Spring look. This pretty gift set includes a cream blush in Guava, an eyeshadow quad with pink and neutral tones, the most delicate pink gloss in Peony, and a cream stay shadow stick in radiant Gleam. With long-lasting finishes and dewy formulas, the products included in this collection will make Mom celebrate Spring even if the weather has been crazy lately.

7. For her fleur musc by Narciso Rodriguez ($100 / 1.6 oz): Following his tradition of creating extremely feminine fragrances that tell a unique story, designer Narciso Rodriguez recently launched his fleur musc version of the world-famous for her. Conceived to evoke charm and grace, this vibrant floral eau du parfum celebrates the profound sensuality of every woman. A sublime rose in a bottle, the core of the fragrance is composed by a generous floral bouquet with vibrant notes that enhance the signature heart of musc with warmth and sensuality. Pink peppercorns and woody amber notes with patchouli illuminate the exit notes of a well-rounded creation that evolves during the day. As it intertwines with each women's own natural scent, the result is a bespoke fragrance that celebrates a sensual confidence.  If Mom has a creative spirit and likes showing her mood by choosing the fragrance she wears, this is the ideal gift for her.

8. Sterling Silver Bow Midi Ring by Robin McGraw Revelation ($189): Robin created this stunning Swarovski crystal bow ring to serve as a reminder to women to take care of themselves. Designed to be worn as a midi ring, its design stems from the idea of tying a piece of thread on your finger to remind you of something. This is a great gift to remind Mom that she's not selfish if she puts herself at the top of her list, for as Robin McGraw defends, Mom needs to take care of herself first in order to take care of those she loves. A wonderful gift for the selfless Mom that gives everything to others.

9. PHYTOKERATINE Extreme Exceptional Transformation Trio by Phyto ($45): If Mom travels a lot, she'll know it's never a good idea to trust the hotel shampoos to keep her mane in place. Paris firm Phyto has launched a delightful travel trio to protect, repair and moisturize Mom's hair even during the most hectic weeks. This pouch includes three of the best selling products of the PHYTOKERATINE line: A mini extreme shampoo to gently cleanse and repair each hair strand (yep, it works even after a long-distance flight!), a mini extreme mask to achieve ultimate shine and suppleness, and an award-winning mini extreme exceptional cream to transform the driest hair into sublime tresses. Believe me: Phyto is one of the most celebrated hair care brands by Parisian ladies for a reason. Mom will love it!

10. One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer by Revlon Salon ($59.99 at Target): Has Mom given up on her hair and has decided to rock an all-year ponytail? She might like this revolutionary styling tool designed to deliver gorgeous volume and brilliant shine in just one single step. No blow dryers, no brushes, no mess. The unique oval brush design quickly creates frizz -free volume at the root and beautifully full-bodied curls the ends with a single pass, so Mom can have salon results at home. But wait, there's more! As it is boosted with Ionic Technology, not only hair dries faster for less damage, but it also tames those pesky flyaways. If you ask me, that's a lot for that sweet, sweet price!
