Luxury Christmas gifts for her

There's nothing quite like seeing someone's eyes sparkle and go a little wider when they open a gift from you. When choosing a perfect gift, I often think of something I know they'll love and are less likely to treat themselves to. Here's a compilation of my favourite Christmas sets that any luxury beauty lover would appreciate.

LUXURY MAKEUP JUNKIE GIFTS

Zoeva Pure Velours Box* (RPR £58) contains 8 matte liquid lipsticks in a variety of shades. From nude through dusky rose, red and dark berry, it’ll make a perfect gift for any liquid lipstick fan. Don’t want the set? They are also available to buy for £11 each! You can also grab these from Beauty Bay and Feel Unique.



Apologies for the lack of packaging - I had to declutter, but if you’re looking to gift makeup brushes this Christmas, look no further than Kit Stars Eye and Face brush sets*! I absolutely adore these brushes and use them all the time. Great quality at a fraction of price (when compared to likes of Sigma or even Zoeva, not to mention others!) and with stunning handles, will surely make any makeup enthusiast very happy!

Too Faced makeup sets are those often sought after this time of year. Just look at the adorable packaging of Let it Snow, Girl* (RPR £46), a set of 3 palettes (mimicking the snowman!) and a mini Better Than Sex mascara also in cute Christmas version will make a superb present for any makeup fan! The ‘head’ palette consists of bronzer & highlight, the middle palette comes with 4 gorgeous blush shades (3 mattes and 1 satin) and finally, the largest palette contains a variety of beautiful and great quality eyeshadows in a variety of finishes! Perfect for teens and already adulting makeup addicts! Available from ASOS, Boots, Cult Beauty, Debenhams and Selfridges.

Finally, the most exclusive high-end palette I ever came across, from the Queen of Eyeshadow herself, the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership VI (RPR £115) has the most stunning selection of matte, shimmer & foil formulas out there. Yes, it’s pricey AF but if it’s within your budget, I say splurge. A makeup lover in your life will love you forever, trust me! Also available from Net-a-Porter & Selfridges.




SKINCARE NERD CHRISTMAS WISH-LIST

Image Skincare Beauty Sleep Collection* comes with a quality wash bag & sleep mask, as well as a lovely selection of luxury skincare we came to love from Image! From 2 x I-Mask Hydrating Hydrogel Sheet Masks, through a full size The Max Stem Cell Facial Cleanser, a travel mini of their bestselling Vital-C Hydrating Anti-Ageing Serum to Vital-C Hydrating Overnight Mask, is sure to put a smile of any skincare enthusiast face! I can already attest to glowing skin powers of the overnight mask & quite possibly a new favourite second cleanse cleanser!


I simply couldn’t say no to Ole Henriksen Oh My Glow (OMG) Brightening Set. At £44 you get a lot of fantastic skincare (and makeup primer!) in a travel-friendly size + full-size Truth Serum! I wanted to try this range for ages now, so it made a perfect sense to treat myself to it. I’ll be sure to let you know my thoughts soon, but I have a feeling it’ll be a hit just like others from OH have been already! Treat yourself or a friend/family to a full size 30ml of Truth Serum, 15ml Banana Bright Face Primer (the scent is unreal!) and Eye Cream (7ml), and C-Rush Brightening Gel Creme before it disappears from shops!



A HIGH-END SCENT FOR A LUXURY-LOVING GAL

Kayali Citrus 08 (RPR £67 for 50ml/ £84 for 100ml) is a beautiful fragrance from Huda Beauty herself and her sister Mona Kattan. If you’re into luxury long-wearing sweet scents, this may be the one. A beautiful blend of bergamot, pink grapefruit, rhubarb, black currant, pink pepper, rose centifolia, musk, tonka and oakmoss wears beautifully all day long and it’s fresh and fruity with a bit of zesty citrus thrown in. It’ll make a beautiful gift - just look at that outer packaging to any perfume lover! Also available from Cult Beauty.
