Makeup and Beauty Christmas Tree

I haven’t done so in a while but I love creating a makeup and beauty Christmas Trees for friends and family who enjoy makeup and skincare. Let me tell you creating a Makeup and Beauty Christmas Tree is so much easier than every before because there are SO many cute beauty ornaments to choose from. In the past, I used to have to hot glue ribbon to lipstick tubes to create ornaments! Nowadays, brands package up deluxe sizes of their most popular sizes and put them into tiny ornaments that have ribbon for hanging from a Christmas tree or to attached to a gift.

I have a few different Holiday parties and for one of them I have a makeup and Christmas tree in my foyer. I allow my guests to choose one ornament from the tree at the end of the night. For my really good friends I used do an entire decorated tree that included all sorts of handmade beauty ornaments like mini mascaras, lipsticks, etc…

Creating a Makeup and Beauty Christmas Tree is pretty easy!

Here’s the deets!

First you’ll obviously need a Christmas tree! You can get a mini one for as little as $12 to $20 on! You can go larger of course, but remember the larger you go the harder it is to gift the entire thing to your makeup loving friend.

Now you’ll need lights!

I have a fetish for fairy lights. I use them everywhere during the Holidays! I decorate my entire china cabinet with them around the Holidays, I wind them around centerpieces, etc…etc…add to the fact they have a timer and I’m a happy Muse! They are perfect for use on your mini beauty tree and you can get them in a wide variety of shades at for $10 bucks!

And the important part! This is the fun part! Makeup and beauty ornaments!

There are so many different brands offering a variety of great little picks for your tree. Decorate it with items from Too Faced, It Cosmetics, Philosophy, and more! Each brand has unique Holiday ornaments that have a ribbon for hanging! There are mascaras to choose from, liquid lipsticks, perfumes, skincare, and so many other fun and fabulous makeup, beauty, and skincare ornaments that you can decorate your tree with which can be found at,, and! Beauty and makeup ornaments run anywhere from $10 to $15 each!

My favorites can be found below. If you want to go cheaper you can grab yourself a hot glue gun, some fancy ribbon, and some cheaper products from NYX, Wet n Wild, and other drugstore brands and make your own ornaments!

Don’t forget the star to finish your Makeup and Beauty Christmas Tree!

Now pop it somewhere in your home and allow your guests during the season to pick a lovely little treat from the tree. Or if you have someone special you can box the entire tree up, fully decorated, and gift it to your friend. I’ve done this for some of my closest friends and they were absolutely delighted with it.

Good luck creating your Makeup and Beauty Christmas Tree! I hope you enjoyed this idea!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    That is a cute idea, I saw a big one years ago that had children on it – to help with the deep poverty. Compassion was the name of the tree. Seeing their faces in a gift box on the tree and you could pick as many as you wanted πŸ™‚

      that’s lovely!!!! An excellent idea. My bank actually has a “make a wish” type thing for Christmas every year. They give you a letter from a child in who requests a gift they want and you buy it for them for Christmas. After the New Year the child writes a thank you note to you, it’s all rather sweet and has me all gushy and teary eyed when I get the thank you later!

    I was in such a funk yesterday that I couldn’t even muster any interest in my fav hobby….makeup! But life goes on and we hope for the best. This is a great idea! There really are so many cute little makeup gifts to use for this.

      Don’t be, Dee. I was disappointed too but at this point we can only hope for the best. It’s not like we haven’t had craptastic presidents in the past and it’s not like we won’t have them in the future, that’s the way I’m thinking about it. Don’t let it consume you. We always come out strong! πŸ™‚
