Beauty gifts are pretty much guaranteed to make a lot of women happy at Christmas (especially me). I’ve got a few Gift Guide posts planned but today I thought that I’d start with the makeup. I’ve been good this year and have barely asked for any makeup, but there are some gorgeous pieces out at the moment.
Eyeshadow palettes always make a lovely beauty gift. There are so many to choose from at the moment, but I have some beauties to show you. They are more towards the higher end of the market, but they are worth every penny.
URBAN DECAY HEAVY METALS PALETTE – £38.70
A limited edition plates with 20 brand new shades that are Urban Decay’s most metallic shades yet. There are 10 neutrals for a glamrock daytime look and 10 brights ideal to enable you to go full on metal at night. (Full review here).
GIVENCHY ALL IN ONE COLLECTION – £66.70
This is one you’re going to have to pick up at the airport so it’s great if you’re travelling to see loved ones. This palette contains all you need for the face, eyes and lips and feels so luxe. If you know someone who likes to travel a lot, then this is ideal.
I’ve been told that this will be available from 24th November, so let’s hope that’s true. This palette is a pastel lover’s dream. With 16 cocoa powder-infused shades, this would make a beautiful gift for those who like delicate shades … and chocolate! (Full review here).
Beauty lovers will always enjoy lip and cheek products, so I’ve chosen some that would make great stocking fillers, or the perfect gift for a friend. I could have included so many, but these are the ones I’ve been loving.
COVER FX CUSTOM ENHANCER DROPS SET – £34.00
How pretty are these? With 4 mini bottles of the iconic Custom Enhancer Drops, this set is a must have for the woman who is obsessed with strobing and bronzing. The set includes Celestial, Halo, Moonlight and Rose Gold and is just so lovely.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY CITIES LIPSTICKS – £24.00 EACH
Lipstick lovers will love to find one, or all, of these limited edition Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks. Inspired by Charlotte’s favourite cities, they are so beautiful and will make such a nice little beauty gift. There are three shades to choose from: English Beauty (nude pink matte); Shanghai Nights (deep red matte); and, American Sweetheart (natural tawny pink). Grab these fast! (Full review here).
This is another airport pick up, but it is a cute little set that would be a great gift. With two of Clarins’ Instant Light Lip Perfectors, they leave your lips looking soft, smooth, shiny and plump. You can wear them alone or over lipsticks and it’s a great little duo.
LILY ENGLAND MARBLE LUXE BRUSH SET – £45.00
Makeup brushes always make a lovely present for beauty lovers and these are just stunning. With their on trend marble and rose gold details, they’re just perfection. You’ll earn some serious brownie points if you gift these this Christmas. (Full review here).

LAURA GELLER ALL OVER GLOW – £35.00
If you have a friend or relative who likes to glow, then this is a lovely little set. It contains the limited edition Baked Body Frosting in Gilded Glow and the cutest lollipop-inspired applicator. Really, this is such a cute set.
LAURA GELLER HOLLYWOOD LIGHTS – £45.00
A gorgeous selection of 6 must-have products. This set is so bloody lovely. It contains Spackle Hydrating Primer, Balance N Brighten Foundation, Double-ended Face Brush, Hollywood Glam palette, Grapefruit Baked Blush N Brighten and City Light Colour Lustre Lip Gloss. With a value of over £91.00, this is the perfect gift.
I had to include these cute little sets from Pur Cosmetics. They’re very cute and a great way to introduce someone to the brand.
PUR QUICK PRO LIPS – NUDE $26.00
Apologies for the American pricing but trying to get on bloody Beauty Bay today is impossible (damn you Black Friday). Who doesn’t love a good old nude lip? This set has all you need for the perfect nude pout. With a lipliner, lipstick and gloss all in a light peachy pink, this is a great set, worth over $60.00 that will make the nicest gift.
PUR SCULPT & GLOW ON THE GO – $14.00
With a value of $36.00, this little kit is an ideal beauty gif for those who like to glow (me!) and who like to sculpt. The highlight palette has three beautiful illuminating shades, whilst the sculpting palette has two contouring shades and a bronzer. They’re great for travelling or for throwing in your handbag.
PUR DREAM ON THE GLOW – $14.00
The final part of my beauty gift guide, well the makeup anyway, is this cute little set. There’s an 8 shade eyeshadow palette and an 8 shade lip palette. The shades are buildable and blendable and would be so great to find in your stocking on Christmas morning.
I hope that you’ve enjoyed the first instalment on my Beauty Gift Guides. There’ll be more soon!
