This is my second ‘Christmas Gift Guide‘. Maybe you need a little inspiration with something to buy for a sister, a friend, maybe your mother, or even yourself? Well this guide will help if she likes makeup.
The nude eyeshadow palette.
If you’re thinking of buying eyeshadows for someone, remember, getting nude colours is a lesser risk than going for statement colours. I’ve got a couple of suggestions that I believe would be perfect for anyone.
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette – £20. This is a new product, already out in the U.S., still trying to figure out when it’ll be out in the U.K. (thought it was 20th December but my local Urban Decay counter has a release date for Boxing Day. But then, I went to another Urban Decay counter and the poor makeup artists seemed pretty clueless…). If it does come out before Christmas, it would make a perfect present. Read more about it here.
Stila Natural Beauty Eye Shadow Palette 13.9g – £14.50 (value £78). This is a steal! With 13 colours, everyone should find something they like, and I think this is a great starter pack too. Buy here.
The fancy palette
If you are after something special and fancy, then some of the following suggestions are limited editions palettes and they will make gorgeous presents.
Chantecaille, The Elephant Palette – £74. Four gorgeous colours, in a gorgeous palette, a little something special that will look lovely on a dressing table, plus some of the profit will go to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Buy here.
Nars American Dream – £39.50. Well… This is a Nars palette, the colours are gorgeous just be aware that they are rather shimmery, but again, who wouldn’t want to wear a bit of shimmer for New Year Eve? Buy here.
Something for the lips.
Why not get a lip product?
DIOR DIORIFIC Grand Bal High Fashion Lipstick – £25. This is a limited edition lipstick, it comes in four different reds. Just look at this gorgeous packaging. Buy here.
Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain L’Extrait Lipgloss – £29.50. This is actually a liquid lipstick, it’s super pigmented and dries almost matte, there are a few colours to pick from too. Plus it has an amazing packaging. Buy here.
It’s quite hard to buy face products for someone else, I personally wouldn’t want someone to get me foundation or concealer but bronzer and blush is always a good idea.
Nars Blush Bronzer Duo – £30. This small palette contains two of the most popular Nars product, the Orgasm blush and the Laguna bronzer. Both products are considered cult products so this is a perfect buy. Get here.
Nars Foreplay Palette – £39.50. Four cheeks products, three blushes and a highlighter, all in the classic Nars packaging. Again, a great present. Buy here.
