Gifts for the beauty lover….
So today’s post is one of the first for my christmas content. I am a HUGE lover of the festive season and there’s nothing I love more than receiving beauty gifts. With most of my blog being about beauty it shouldn’t come as a surprise that my first christmas gift guide is of course beauty related! From skincare to makeup I’ve put together some gorgeous gifts you can buy your mum, your daughter, your sister, your best friend and even yourself if you wish! Hope your excited for the holiday season as much as I am…xo
Too Faced Sugar Cookie Palette
I’ve featured this palette on my Instagram recently and OMG am I in love with it. I pick up some of Too Faced’s holiday collection every year and they didn’t fail to amaze me this year. This palette has 8 eyeshadow shades and its the most cutest palette I’ve seen from Too Faced. Too Faced got their inspiration for this palette from gingerbread and sugar cookie deserts, how awesome is that! Sugar Cookie is a limited edition palette and has a cool toned colour scheme. If you want to see swatches of sugar cookie check out my Instagram HERE! This would be lovely for someone who is a collector of makeup, loves too faced as a brand or is just starting out in makeup! Of course the palette has a christmas theme thats what I love the most about it! You can purchase this palette from the following retailers:
Zoella Foaming Body Scrub
Zoe has some of the most nicest christmas collections out for her beauty and lifestyle ranges! I love how unique and creative her ideas are and I always look forward to her christmas collections. This year her theme for her beauty range was all about space, something so different for christmas right. However the scent this year is different to some of her other ranges I feel it’s much more “grown up”. The “Cosmos” range is absolutely gorgeous with vanilla and peppermint and has a variety of gifts you purchase for family and friends..
The Foaming Body Scrub is one product I’ve loved so far. This comes in her “Wish Upon A Spa” gift box. I adore Zoe’s body scrub products as I have them on the side of my bath, perfect for exfoliating. If you want to gift someone who loves to have a good old pamper the gift set is amazing!
You can purchase the ‘Wish Upon A Spa” Gift set from Superdrug! It’s currently on offer for black friday so get it whilst you can…
Charlotte Tilbury Red Carpet Red*
This wouldn’t be a beauty gift guide without me adding some Charlotte Tilbury to it. The festive season is the perfect time to wear a red lip, everyone loves a holiday red right! I was kindly gifted this matte revolution lipstick from the Charlotte Tilbury team and I am obsessed! Some of my favourite lipsticks in my collection are from Charlotte Tilbury, the matte formula is amazing, so so creamy and comfortable to wear too! This shade would look perfect with gold and glittery eyes for christmas. Ideal for the makeup lover in your life. You can purchase Red Carpet Red from the following retailers:
Pixi By Petra Fairy Lights*
I feel Pixi have been the brand to watch this year, they have officially outdone themselves in my opinion! This year I started receiving parcels from Pixi Beauty’s PR team and I’ve never been so thankful and grateful for all the love and support you show on my socials! Without you I wouldn’t receive parcels like I do. One parcel that did excite me was Pixi’s Fairy Lights. There a liquid glimmer eyeshadow with a glitter reflex. OMG these are so beautiful in the tube and on the eye lids. If your looking for a gift for someone that loves to shine or basically loves a little glitter over christmas time these are perfect! There so hydrating on the eyes too. Pixi have 5 shades in the fairy lights range and you can purchase Pixi from their website HERE!
Take a look at the post I wrote on Pixi’s Fairy Lights here, there’s swatches too loves!
Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palette
This has to be one of the most gorgeous and talked about palettes leading up to the festive season. Too Faced have some of my favourite shadows and I just love how inventive they are! The Gingerbread Spice palette is absolutely beautiful and the shadows don’t disappoint. If there’s someone you want to gift who is obsessed with eyeshadow palette’s this will be the perfect gift! It also smells like gingerbread too and I love how they have added the most cutest gingerbread man on the packaging too!
If your lucky enough to grab this palette well done! However it’s currently out of stock which is a shame. You may still be able to get it off the Too Faced website itself or keep checking these retailers to see if they restock:
Millie Mckintosh Luxe Beauty and Sheer Glow
What I love about christmas is there are collections released you don’t see throughout the year. You can pick them up as gifts or stocking fillers. One collection I love to see is the beauty range from Millie Mckintosh. Her products are sold in Boots in store and online. I love this years rose gold and burgundy design, the products look so elegantly beautiful! This year’s scent is Millie’s signature scent jasmine and bergamot 🙂
The Luxe Beauty product is a body butter and the Sheer Glow is a body polish. These products come in Millie’s Beauty Wind Down collection which is the most expensive in her range this year. I wouldn’t say it’s incredibly expensive either as it’s in the 3 for 2 offer as well.
Take a look at Millie’s range on Boots here!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette
Now it goes without a fail that Anastasia always releases a palette for christmas! I wasn’t sure about this palette at first but once I swatched it I was blown away. This palette is absolutely gorgeous, the packaging is insane and the colours are super sparkly and pretty too! I just love how the design resembles christmas and all things glitter! I’m a huge fan of sparkly things over the festive season so grabbing this was a must! Of course this isn’t an essential if you or the person your gifting is not makeup obsessed but it’s needed if you or them love ABH shadows! Definitely one to add to your palette collection. I just love the neutral tones and of course the shimmer shades!
The Sultry Palette is of course from ABH’s holiday collection for 2018 and is available on the following retailers:
Huda Beauty New Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
Of course I had to save the star of the show until last right! I absolutely love Huda Beauty as a brand, her work ethic is incredible and her eyeshadow palette’s are amazing! This palette has to be another one of those highly anticipated palette’s of the year! Huda gave us all a sneak peek to a new palette and this was her reveal. This palette has 18 shades, from mattes, metallics and glitters this is THE palette your going to want this christmas!
I love the colours in this palette, it’s a little on the pricey side but definitely worth it if you wish to surprise the beauty lover in your life! Huda’s palettes are so luxurious and this is a brand I would definitely love to receive something from in my stocking! You can’t go wrong with her products, definitely check out the new nudes palette from the following retailers:
Hope this will give you some ideas for gifting this year, bet you have a wishlist for yourself now!!
