As a beauty addict myself, it would only make sense that I do a post on the top 10 gifts for a beauty lover this Christmas season! So without further ado, here they are!
Make Up Geek Eyeshadows
Make-Up Geek is an American brand that was created by the lovely Marlena Stell and have recently become available on BeautyBay.com, so you (or your boyfriend) can shop to your hearts content without all those nasty custom charges.
Some of the shades that I am absolutely lusting after (and for €6.90 a pan why wouldn’t you?) are:
This shade is a gorgeous matte maroon red. For this time of year, this colour all over the lid and blended out is one of my favourites looks.
Crème Brulee –
This shadow is a great transitional colour for all over the lid and with some MUG Bitten in the crease. This shade is described as a medium sand colour with a soft matte finish.
Desert Sands –
This shade is quickly becoming known in the beauty world as a dupe for MAC Interrupted except for half the price! It is described a medium camel brown with warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It is number one on my wish list!
There are so many different Makeup Geek shades and sets to choose from and can be got HERE.
Zoeva Rose Golden Complete Brush Set
Oh what I wouldn’t give for these gorgeous Zoeva brushes! This set contains 15 essential face and eye brushes for your daily make-up routine and not only are they high quality to ensure flawless application, they’re also in a breath-taking shade of rose gold.
Some of the brushes that are included in this set (and are my personal favourites) are the 127 Luxe Sheer Cheek which is ideal for contour and face definition, the 106 Powder which is a large luxury fluffy brush and the 228 Luxe Crease brush that is perfect for blending out and creating a flawless finish with every eye look.
This set also comes with a beautiful brown brush clutch with rose gold detailing and you can get it for €120 HERE.
Clarisonic – Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System
This is one for the lovers of their skincare products. The Clarisonic is an absolute cult favourite in the beauty world and it is mostly definitely on mine (and I’m sure plenty of other beauty lovers) wish list this Christmas!
The Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleaning System comes in the colours grey, pink and white and not only is it gorgeous, it also uses a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second, working with the skin’s natural elasticity to thoroughly remove the impurities that come between you and smoother, softer, healthier looking skin.
The Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System comes with a protective travel case and you can get it for €149 HERE.
Inglot Limited Edition Christmas Palette
In case you’re yet you notice, I am quite the lover of eyeshadows and when you look at this eyeshadow palette, it’s not hard to see why!
This Christmas Inglot have brought out a limited edition Christmas palette with ten gorgeous shades from their freedom collection. Having already become the proud owner of several Inglot eyeshadows I can tell you that these shadows are so easy to work with on the eye and are so pigmented that you just need them in your life.
The palette includes shades 07 which is the ultimate Christmas gold, 458 and 329 which are the perfect shades on trend browns and seven more festive favourites.
You can buy this palette for €75 at any Inglot store or on their website HERE.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit
Why I don’t have this in my make-up kit yet is beyond me, but trust me it is at the top of my list.
Available in four shades, these palettes of six contouring creams have been causing a cyber-space frenzy – with buttery and buildable textures, these are perfect for sculpting your favourites features; exaggerating shadows and highlighting ‘high points’, to effortlessly cheat your way to Kate Moss-worthy cheekbones.
All I can is that if it’s good enough for contour queen Kylie Jenner, then it is most definitely good enough for me. You can get this contour kit for €48.40 HERE.
Emma Hardie Essential Collection
Here’s another one for the skincare lovers out there. I absolutely love the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, so what better than an Emma Hardie skincare set?!
This set comes with four gorgeous skincare products and a luxury Emma Hardie professional cleansing cloth. The products are the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, Emma Hardie Brilliant Facial Oil, Emma Hardie Amazing Face Rejuvenating Night Cream and Emma Hardie Moringa Exfoliator.
I have to say this set is so lovely that I think it would be the perfect gift for any girl (or maybe just as a nice little pre-Christmas present to yourself!) You can get this set for €59.22 HERE.
6 Shades of Love – Love Glow by Charlotte Tilbury
Ah Charlotte Tilbury, can she do any wrong? This Christmas she has paired up some of her most beautiful products to create the ultimate Christmas gift set!
The 6 Shades of Love gift set in Love Glow contains a gorgeous blush as well as a buttery K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick. In the ‘Love Glow’ set it contains the ‘Love Glow’ blush and the lipstick in ‘Bitch Perfect’ which is the most beautiful shade of nude.
Each gift set comes encased in an exquisite gift box tied with ribbon and with a complimentary Travel Wonderglow (yes please!) and you can get it for €65 HERE.
Viktor and Rolf Bonbon
It wouldn’t be Christmas unless someone was giving someone a beautiful bottle of perfume and if you’re looking for the ideal one for any special lady, this would have to be my top pick.
I’m a huge fan of the Viktor and Rolf scents and being the proud owner of the ever popular Flower Bomb, as well as Bonbon, I think Bonbon is my scent of choice for this time of year.
Viktor and Rolf Bonbon is described as sparkling, effervescent mandarin and orange slices – crystallised into crackling pieces of caramel wrapping succulent fruit. You can get Viktor and Rolf Bonbon 50ml for €77.40 in any Debenhams store or online HERE.
The Manizer Sister by theBalm
What beauty lover doesn’t love herself a bit of highlight? Especially at this time of year when glitter is everywhere to be seen!
Whether you want to add a gorgeous subtle glow using Mary-Lou Manizer, an all-over sun-kissed glow with Betty-Lou Manizer, or a peachy-pink shimmer with Cindy-Lou Manizer, theBalm The Manizer Sisters palette has it covered. The compact palette comes with a mirror and is the perfect handbag size for adding a gorgeous glow on the go. A Christmas party makeup bag essential.
You can get this fabulous trio for €28.00 HERE.
Frosted Plum Tin of Delights by The Body Shop
And finally, last but by no means least, the Frosted Plum Tin of Delights by the Body Shop.
Having smelt this scent from The Body Shop, I have to say it just smell so deliciously of Christmas time that you absolutely cannot go wrong if you were to purchase this for a beauty lover.
The set comes with a frosted plum shower gel, body butter, shimmer fragrance and a lip balm. All ideal for having you smelling and looking great this Christmas time!
This set comes in a festive candy-striped purple tin and you can get it for €49.95 at any The Body Shop store or online HERE.
So there you have it, my top 10 gifts for a beauty addict. I hope you enjoyed this post and get everything you could possibly dream of this Christmas!
