Suzy Gerstein, Celebrity Makeup Artist
"This Lip Suede compact is a favorite of mine and my clients alike for both its style and substance. The chic, glossy red compact looks like jewelry on your vanity, and the four pigment-rich shades inside may be worn individually or layered together for infinite possibilities. I love that the formula works on lips and cheeks and punches up shades mom already likely has in her makeup wardrobe (try patting a dot of the fuchsia in the center of a too-dull nude lipstick for an instant spring refresh). I love applying it with the brush for precision."
"Westman’s Superloaded Tinted Highlight is my favorite finishing touch to add warmth, luminosity, and structure to a look. It is such a flattering product for Zooms because it adds an IRL filter, and the brush is soooo soft and luscious and makes it even more of a joy to apply."
"This bath oil from Susanne Kauffmann is the type of special indulgence that mom wouldn’t pick up for herself, but will be so grateful you did. Susanne creates her products with luxury and sustainability in mind, formulating with plants local to her family farms in Austria and tested out in her luxe eco spa on the property. Transport mom to those idyllic locals through her senses."
Sofie Pavitt, Esthetician & Acne Specialist
"Mutha Body Butter is one of my favorite body butters out there, decadent and something maybe mom would never buy for herself but is such a treat. Super hydrating, smells amazing, and is so addictive."
"For the skincare junkie mom, LightStim Anti-Wrinkle LED. It's an easy-to-use LED device that you can use whilst watching TV. It has powerful LED diodes and it's very effective at stimulating collagen production and decreasing inflammation in the skin."
"Shani Darden Retinol Reform is a great, easy-to-use, gentle-yet-effective retinol that's perfect for mom."
Monika Blunder, Celebrity Makeup Artist
"Tools are one of my favorite things to gift, as they last forever and feel so luxurious. The Gold Bar from Jillian Dempsey is so high quality and glamorous, the mom in your life will feel like a queen every time she uses it. This 24k gold vibrating bar helps sculpt, lift and massage the face. I keep one in my pro kit!"
"For makeup, I love to gift moms things that are versatile so she can use them every day, but also on days where she wants to get more glammed up. Blunder Cover is my all-in-one foundation/concealer hybrid and as a mom, it’s my favorite because I can use my fingers for a quick conceal, or build it up and use it to highlight and contour on my heavier makeup days. It’s also great for mature skin — it never settles into fine lines or wrinkles."
"Finally, to really spoil your mom, I don’t think you can go wrong with something from a classic brand like Chanel. I’ve been loving their Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick, and their packaging feels so luxurious. Lipstick is also something you can easily carry with you in your bag for touch-ups, and she will think of you every time she uses it."
Fiona Stiles, Celebrity Makeup Artist
"There is little that is as chic as something that’s monogrammed. And nothing is more chic than the monogrammed refillable lipstick cases from La Bouche Rouge. Made of upcycled leather and incredibly beautiful, these are extra special because you can swap out the ethically formulated luxury lipsticks as you please. A thoughtful gift for your mom, and for the planet."
"If there’s one thing moms universally need, it’s a little 'me time'. These bath bomb cubes are made with the fewest, but the most wonderful, ingredients. Essential oils will fill the air with incredible scents like Bergamot Lime or Lavender Sage while the coconut oil in the bombs leave your skin feeling soft and supple. Perfect for those few minutes that a mom can steal away for herself!"
Tobi Henney, Celebrity Makeup Artist
"Tom Ford Soleil Brulant is the new fragrance from Tom Ford for summer and it is the absolute perfect gift for Mother’s Day. I am in love with it!"
"Everyone loves great skincare, and why not spoil your mom with the absolute best? This moisturizer by Augustinus Bader is my can’t-live-without skincare item!"
Harriet Hadfield, Celebrity Makeup Artist
"Byredo Burning Rose candle is my favourite treat, and perfect for anyone needing a little more 'me time'. Creating a space that feels warm and inviting is one of the best ways to reconnect with yourself and create a spa-like vibe in the comfort of your own home."
"Masking is one of my favourite ways to incorporate some self-care into my week, and one of my all-time favourites is the Sisley Black Rose mask. It’s clear in colour, so you can leave it on overnight or while you go about your day (or even on the plane). It’s the ultimate treat!"
Katey Denno, Celebrity Makeup Artist
"My absolutely favorite new product on the scene is the antioxidant CBD face oil from True Botanicals. I’ve been testing it for nearly the last two months and it’s replaced the ten different oils I’d been cycling through every morning and night. It makes my skin feel and look exactly how I like it – glowy, hydrated, no dry or scaley or red patches, no breakouts, and honestly the thing that keeps me craving it is the scent. It’s really my favorite (all naturally) scented face oil ever (mainly because it contains bergamot and jasmine), and I don’t make it a habit to ever say anything is my favorite ANYTHING. But it’s true! They say they’ve formulated it for all skin types, and because inflammation is to blame for so much of our "aging" skin woes, the fact that it contains a high dose of anti-inflaming CBD makes it both trendy and scientifically on-target."
"Then there’s Tata Harper’s body oil. It’s an old favorite that never gets old. It’s on my bedside table and in my bathroom within reach of the shower. It’s my signature scent and I love how it makes my otherwise very dry arms and legs glow – and a little goes a very long way, especially on damp skin. Plus the bottle is gorgeous and unique and the packaging looks gift-wrapped already. Just put a little bow on it."
Justine Marjan, Celebrity Hairstylist
"NuFace Trinity is one of my favorite facial devices and is something I think every mother would love. It’s an amazing anti-aging device that takes only 5 minutes of time to use each day. I’ve been using it since I’ve had the baby and I honestly look forward to my 5-minute routine with it each day. It’s a bit of a splurge, so makes an amazing gift idea."
"Spare your busy mom from the mom bun with an elevated scrunchie. Something as simple as a chic hair accessory can make all the difference in making mom look and feel her best, even when she’s in a rush."
"The ReFa Crystal Roller is another amazing skincare device that is the perfect splurge for mom. It’s a luxurious addition to her skincare routine that promotes lifting, firming, and product absorbency. I love how cool it feels on the face — perfect to wake the skin up in the morning after a night of little sleep."
Daniela Gozlan, Celebrity Makeup Artist
"I freak out if I don’t have the Peter Thomas Roth Unwrinkle Pads in my kit — they’re the most amazing key ingredient to a beautifully healthy, rested complexion and glow from within. They exfoliate the skin perfectly and quickly from the first touch, creating a gorgeous, beautiful canvas for any foundation."
"The Crystal Elixir is my number 2 in line after the Un-Wrinkle Pads. It gives the skin such a beautiful glow, it’s super hydrating, and it gives the skin a very youthful appearance. Another must-have in my kit — my mature clientele is obsessed with the result. Foundation will also adhere better to the skin, making my job extremely satisfying."
