Merry Christmas Eve eve! I hope you are in full festive swing now, with the selection boxes each laid out and opened. As I’m writing this my mum is pottering around me, bringing out the Christmas pudding napkins and choosing todays Christmas candle (we brought 10 festive sample size candles from Yankee Candle) – I think she’s gone for Christmas Magic. My neighbour has just dropped off a Christmas card spelling my mums name right for the first time since we moved in (19 years ago..). The Christmas delivery has arrived bringing our turkey and sides leaving just a handful of bits we need to pick up tomorrow.
I’m pleased to say that I have officially finished buying all the Christmas presents I need this year. I got paid at a weird point this year, hence leaving Christmas present shopping uncharacteristically late this year. For my last post before Christmas, I have compiled a gift guide for beauty lovers for everyone else doing their last minute runs this year. The prices range from £15-£120 with something for every budget, spanning from stocking fillers to beauty tools.
It would not be Christmas 2018 if Charlotte Tilbury was not featured prominently in a post. This is one of their full looks in one set items, providing all the products you need for a fresh face glow. I love the pinks in this set.
This incredible set by Dior can be a gift for a man or woman, featuring 8 stunning unisex fragrances. It’s a new release, simply oozing with luxe.
The Foreo Luna is a cult product for skincare lovers everywhere. This mini size of the facial cleansing brush is perfect for those looking to take their skincare routine to the next level, and is perfect for traveling too.
Also of the skincare variety is this gift set from the stars favourite facialist (is that a word?) Sarah Chapman. The supersize set provides an overnight facial, hello beauty sleep.
I’m a sucker for Christmas packaging, so naturally I’m obsessed with this Christmas cracker set from Marc Jacobs. This set holds both a mini mascara and lipstick – perfect for a stocking filler.
This beautiful palette from Hourglass has six shades of highlighters in two different textures. Perfect for the beauty fan always rocking the glow factor.
I swear I’m not sponsored by Charlotte Tilbury. I just genuinely love her brand. This kit features the brands skin care range, with mini versions of products including the best selling Magic Cream.
This adorable palette from Benefit showcases mini’s of their best selling cheek products, complete with bronzer, blush and a highlighter. A steal at £14.85, this is also a great one for stockings.
Zoeva brushes are a makeup guru’s must have, and this rose gold set is a fan favourite.
Huda Beauty is an icon in the beauty realm, and now Cult Beauty stocks the brand preventing the huge wait times and custom charges previously faced by fans ordering products in from across the pond. This bright palette is perfect for all the parties of the festive season.
This is the last Charlotte product of the post, I promise! I couldn’t resist adding this adorable set of mini lipstick charms.
This Too Faced set is already on sale on Cult Beauty, including a brush and three palettes – get it before it sells out!
Another Foreo product (not sponsored by them either) makes it onto the list, this time being the brands blue light acne treatment. Perfect for anyone really struggling with their skin.
This YSL set is a great introduction to the Touche Eclat range, with both the primer and complexion highlighter included.
I hope you enjoyed this gift guide. If you are braving the shops today or tomorrow I wish you all the best of luck. I hope your gifts are received positively, and you each get something from your own Wishlist.
My next post will be after the big day, so I wish all of you a Merry Christmas! I’ll be back next week with a look back at the year that was 2018, and forward to the year that can only get better.
