It’s no surprise that a working mama of two, Divya Gugnani, and former Victoria’s Secret model, Lindsay Ellingson were looking for functional, easy-to-use beauty products that take minimal effort to apply!
After connecting at an event, Divya & Lindsay bonded over their love of makeup & quickly became friends. As chance has it and with their powers combined, a year later Wander Beauty was born!
Wander Beauty focuses on luxurious beauty products for the woman on-the-go! Their products are extremely user friendly and often serve more than one function with a solid range of dual-ended products.

My best friend, Corinne Louie (who is a FAB photographer!) and I decided to put our collection of Wander Beauty products to the test after an extremely long and busy day of work!
With zero tools used, other than the Wander products themselves, we were able to spritz up and get holiday ready in a flash! It was such a blast!
Keep reading to learn about a few stand-out products from this amazing women-owned brand that will totally help you get ready in a jiffy for any upcoming holiday events you’ll be attending!
(Pssst…they also make gorgeous gifts for any of the amazing women in your life!)
One of my absolute favorite mascara‘s on the market! Enriched with peach leaf extract and trehalose, not only does this mascara separate and lengthen my lashes to new heights, it also conditions and strengthens lashes while reducing fallout!
Their innovative brush lifts every last lash while the super buildable formula creates voluminous lashes, so much so that this is one of the very few mascaras that make my eyes look so great, I feel confident even without wearing any eyeliner!
Corinne is wearing Gilded Rose available exclusively in Wander Beauty’s Eye-Conic Kit.
Metallic liquid shadows are our all-time favorites, especially during the holiday season!
If you lack confidence in creating a full eye makeup, Wander’s Exquisite Eye Liquid Shadow are your new best friend!
This product is a total one & done! With so much dimension, these liquid shadows work incredible in terms of highlighting, shading and even lining the eyes! Layer it on for high-pigmentation or sheer it out with the blend of a finger and voilà, you’ve got an entire eye look in a pinch! These lustrous, silky eye shadows deliver brilliant color in just one swipe!
Added bonus: Exquisite Eye Liquid Shadows are enriched with green tea and aloe extracts to help sooth & condition your lids!
Here are swatches of (from L to R): Gilded Rose, Dove Grey & Lilac Luster
This may very well be my absolute favorite multi-tasking product by Wander!
Their On-The-Glow Blush & Illuminator has a delicious cream-to-powder formula that delivers natural color to lips & cheeks, while the illuminator gives off a soft, dewy glow to the face & body with its ultra-fine pearlescent pigments, perfect for capturing & reflecting in even the softest ambient light.
My personal favorite shade is Berry Whisper, which is the newest addition to the range! Dot and blend on the apples of the cheeks and swipe onto bare or highlighted lips for that perfect berry-hue!
The On-The-Glow Illuminator works beautifully when blended along the brow bone, applied to the inner corner of the eyes, swiped atop cheekbones and dabbed gently above the lips right on the cupid’s bow for that adorably pouty look!
We also love this Illuminator to add dimension and highlight the shoulders & along the collarbone! So pretty when you’re showing of those shoulders in a strappy number!
How fun is the concept of these lipstick kits?!
Another dual-ended favorite, the customizable packaging for this specific product is GENIUS!
Go from day-to-night without a hitch or add dimension to your lips in these luxurious, richly pigmented, ultra-moisturizing lipsticks by sliding any two lipsticks into the core to create your very own personalized combination on-the-go!
My wintertime go-to is Wanderberry from Wander Beauty’s Prone to Wander Kit!
Corinne’s favorite: the newly launched Read My Lips Kit, which features 4 beautiful mattes and, the coolest part, 1 exclusive metallic shade called Sunset that is not only to-die-for, but can be worn as a blush, highlight or can be used to add a little (or a lot!) of shimmer to your lips!
Corinne’s color of choice for this look: Riviera, a pretty pinkish red with a dollop of Sunset right in the center of her lips for just the right amount of sparkle & dimension!
And, the moment you’ve all been waiting for:
✨ Our final Wander Beauty Holiday Looks! ✨
Additional Wander Beauty products used to create this look: Dualist Matte & Illumination Concealer, Flash Focus Hydrating Foundation Stick, Frame Your Face Micro Brow Pencil
Travel-friendly, paraben & cruelty-free, these brilliant female founders have put so much thought & care into their beautiful makeup line, it’s no wonder (or shall I say “wander 😉 ) why I’ve fallen so in love with nearly every product I’ve tried!
Will you be rocking Wander Beauty this holiday season?
