If your gift receiver is your go-to beauty guru, then you know just what to get them. Navigating the beauty industry can be a mind-boggling experience, especially at Christmas where the offering appears to quadruple. There are SO many shimmering, softening or scented products available, and highlighting my favourites has been a challenge. Wanting to capture the magic and spirit of Christmas, I’ve selected a few favourite pieces packed with sparkle, bold-colour and festive glitz by some of my most loved brands.
For Glowing Skin
A groundbreaking name in the beauty industry that is dominating Christmas lists all over the world. Your beauty guru will either adore Drunk Elephant already or be desperate to try out the acclaimed products themselves. Drunk Elephant have a number of brilliantly named and even more brilliantly equipped skincare kits that are perfect as gifts. The miniatures inside are a great way to try out a number of items to see which works best or find some new favourites.
The Night Kit is one of my standouts and with all the indulgence around Christmas, I couldn’t think of a better gift then clear, restored and vibrant skin.
For Sparkling Beauty Looks
If it’s makeup you’re planning on wrapping up – then it’s got to be something with a little festive shimmer. When it comes to playful and enchanting makeup, Christmas and Too Faced go hand in hand. This year, Too Faced have launched an entire festive beauty collection.
The Let It Snow Girl gift set includes three limited edition palettes featuring shimmering and matte eyeshadows, highlighters, blushers and bronzers. It also includes the iconic Better Than Sex Mascara for a complete festive look.
Another brilliantly fun Kit is the Too Faced Gingerbread House Party. The dreamy large palette (that’s gingerbread scented) houses 20 truly magnificent eyeshadow shades, whilst the medium palette focuses on glitter finishes. A mascara mini and the renowned Shadow Insurance 24 hour Eyeshadow Primer ensures those festive looks stay in place all night long.
A Spritz of Festive Fragrance
Viktor and Rolf have given their iconic fragrance a little Christmas magic. The limited edition gift set includes the Flowerbomb perfume itself alongside a shower gel and body lotion. Pure magic!
The Finishing Touches
If you’re looking for a little something that adds plenty of sparkle, then these pieces make fantastic additions to hampers, stocking fillers or as a festive treat for yourself.
The Clarins Ombre Sparkle Eyeshadows come in 3 glistening colours for glitter impact that’s velvety soft to touch.
Pixi’s duo Lit Kits have lips and eyes sorted, with a choice of ‘Day’ or ‘Night’ perfectly paired shades. Since it’s the party season, the Night kit makes a magical gift.
