The Best Mother’s Day Beauty Gifts for Every Type of Mom
For the Mom Who Loves Fragrance
Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum
This gorgeous fragrance from Lancôme is a floral gourmand complete with notes of fresh, dewy iris, warm, sensual vanilla, earthy patchouli and decadent spun sugar. It’s a balanced scent that lasts a long time on the skin and is sweet without being cloying. For an extra special touch, you can even get a custom message engraved on the bottle. If you do, be sure to order the scent in advance — the engraving will take an extra one to three days.
For the Makeup-Loving Mom

For the mom who views the world through rose-tinted glasses, indulge her senses with rose-tinted makeup brushes. The pink bristles, marbled handles and matching container will look stunning displayed on her vanity and will remind her of you every time she applies her makeup. There’s an equally beautiful matching set for eye makeup.
For the Mom Who Never Leaves the House Without Her Lipstick
Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Power Longwear Satin Lipstick
