With so many Christmas gift sets from brands and limited edition products - here are the bits you can get all year round that ANY beauty lover is bound to be smitten with...
I know there are a lot of gift guides floating around, but I just couldn't help myself. There are a few key brands that I have gravitated towards this year, first up is the only skincare brand I mention in this post - Kiehl's! Since trying their Ultra Facial Cream for the first time back in January, I have been loyal ever since. What makes Kielh's such a fab option for gifting is their 28 day return policy, if a product doesn't work for you then you can return it within the first 28 days of purchase. There are some best sellers from Kiehl's such as their Midnight Recovery Concentrate which I'm sure any beauty lover would be happy with - atleast I know I would be *hint hint*
I couldn't write this post without mentioning the Zoeva eyeshadow palettes. A lot of people gravitate towards Urban Decay palettes to gift - I can see why, they're stunning! However Zoeva have a gorgeous range at half the price. The palette pictured is the Cocoa Blend, if you know a beauty lover who doesn't already have this, they need it!
Eyeshadow palettes are one of those things you just can't have too many of, and the same goes for makeup brushes. I wanted to mention one brand in particular - Look Good Feel Better. This brand is actually a charity that dedicates itself to improving the lives of women who are undergoing the treatment of Cancer. Christmas is a time for giving and I just couldn't think of a better gift than these brushes. I have the blush brush*, it is amazing quality and it's now my go to for bronzing. I have my eye on the Makeover brush set too. Even if you are looking into treating yourself to some new brushes, you should definitely give LGFB a try.
No beauty Christmas gift guide is complete without a little Charlotte Tilbury. I have my eye on the Dolce Vita palette (potentially a Christmas present to myself) but the lipsticks make such a gorgeous, luxurious present I just had to mention them. Lipsticks can be hard to get right for others, but the shade "Bitch Perfect" from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G is a perfect nude that is universally flattering - I don't think you can go far wrong with it!
A couple of stocking filler bits that I just had to mention. The Lush lip scrubs are a winter essential for me, any liquid lipstick lovers out their need to have one! Another safe gift for a beauty lover is the Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray, the travel sized version is under £10 making it affordable and it's one of those beauty products a lot of people get on with. I use this every single day and it really does make a difference to how long my makeup lasts!
I would love to know what beauty bits/ brands you gravitate towards to gift people? I know I have a fair few beauty bits on my list this year!
