The Beauty Gift Guide for the Girl That Has It All
I think buying for beauty fans or bloggers has to be one of the hardest tasks because the reality is, most of us already have the latest releases or that dreamy cult lipstick- either that or you're just so picky it wouldn't be fair for someone else to buy you makeup. But it makes Christmas a nightmare. Each year I find myself simply writing a list, which makes things so much easier. But if you don't want to be too predictable, here are a few ideas.
First off the Urban Decay Ultimate Naked Basics Palette (£38.90). Chances are, she won't have this. Mainly because it's a little bit pricey but also because it's really new! It's a gorgeous dreamy palette that many won't justify buying for themselves so it makes it an ideal Christmas present! The packaging is really sturdy and the colours are gorgeous. They're all matte which makes it ideal for anyone and the shadows as per Urban Decay usual are buttery and pigmented.
Then onto Dr PawPaw (£20.85). Dr Paw Paw is a cult chapstick brand and for Christmas, they came out with a collection of three lipbalms - two of which are tinted. This is a great budget offer or stocking stuffer as they're something they're bound to use without spending too much money. Also, three is super handy because it means a lipbalm per bag....
Another palette option has to be Blank Canvas Cosmetics The Master Palette (£29.93). This is dreamy. I'd never heard of Blank Canvas Cosmetics but they're a bit of a cult brand - and I can see why! The shadows are all warm butter brown tones so very wearable and mostly matte. It's a wonderful palette as it's right on trend. The packaging reminds me of the Anastasia Beverly Hills so quite classic. It's quite large but I've already really given it a good whirl and it's been my go to for eyeshadow days.
The Jason Wu x Caudalie Beauty Elixir (£11-32) is another product that they might not have as it's a limited edition. The Caudalie Beauty Elixir is a bit of a princess product but it's so refreshing and wonderfully ideal for the cooler months. I use it to set my makeup and spritz it regularly throughout the day if I'm at home. It's not as watery as some toning sprays which makes it really moisturising. Plus the packaging is gorgeous.
Again, something that isn't too pricey is the Lulu Guinness Tangle Teezer (£10.99). Ideal for a low budget or stocking stuffer, this is so pretty and cute that any beauty fan would love it. It's an ideal product for gals on the go as it has a cover so is great to chuck into your handbag. There's something quite chic about the classic lip print and it just makes a boring tangle teezer slightly more exciting.
And finally again, on the lower end of the price spectrum is this Soap&Glory All The RIght Smoothes (£14.99). Everyone loves Soap&Glory and I keep one of these in my gym bag and toiletries so it makes it super handy. They all smell amazing and are very moisturising which makes it ideal for this weather.
