To conclude my Christmas Gift Guides for the year is the Beauty Gift Guide of course. There are so many incredible beauty gifts out at the moment from various brands, both high end and drugstore. It's hard to know where to start. I know how difficult it is to buy for a beauty obsessed person so I'm hoping this will help you out, especially if you're a man buying for your other half, sister, mum etc. I have chosen a variety of products for this Gift Guide which vary in price. Some would make great presents for under the tree, and others would be fantastic stocking fillers.
I can't write up a Gift Guide without including a fragrance can I? The YSL Black Opium EDP is the most beautiful scent with a sexy, mysterious edge to it, including notes of black coffee, white flowers and a dose of vanilla. It is just divine, and so addictive. I have the smallest bottle of this perfume(30ml) and it lasts for such a long time. I must have had it for a while. You can also get it in other sizes(50ml, 90ml, 150ml). I'd go for the smaller option if you're not looking to spend too much. The 30ml bottle is only £44.20(down from £52) on Escentual right now if you want to grab a bottle for that special someone. I think that's a pretty good price for a high end brand.
This was probably the most popular beauty launch of the year, and for good reason too. Inside the Naked Cherry Palette are 12 eyeshadows, ranging from a matte ivory to mauve and deep cranberry shades. You can create a variety of different looks with this, and it's perfect for everyday wear too. £42 may seem a lot of money to whittle away on an eyeshadow palette but the quality of the shadows, as well as the packaging is impeccable. You can tell a lot of thought has gone into this eyeshadow palette. Luckily enough, I've noticed that this palette currently has 15% off on Debenhams which means you'd be getting it for just £35.70 instead of £42. That's a saving of £6.30. That may not seem like a lot of money, but a saving is a saving right? To me, that's a bargain. You'd definitely be getting your moneys worth. It's very versatile and I'm sure many girls would love to find this under their tree come Christmas morning.
Bodycare wise, I would really recommend the Lavera Organic Body Butter in Winter Love. Now that it's Autumn, and nearing the Winter, the skin starts to get drier, and it's not a pretty sight or feeling so us girls love to take care of our skin during this time. I personally find body butters to be the best to prevent my skin from drying out too much and keeping it in the best condition. The Winter Love Body Butter is made from Organic Shea Butter and Organic Cocoa Butter to hydrate and lock in moisture. The texture is extremely creamy, indulgent and it's just the best pamper treat. Not to mention it smells incredible too(it's infused with organic vanilla extract and almond oil). For £10.90 you cannot go wrong. I certainly would appreciate this for Christmas.
Everyone loves a sheet mask right? I don't know a single person who doesn't enjoy them. I personally believe they are the perfect pamper treat. I certainly can't have a pamper night without one, particularly ones from Soap & Glory. There are currently 5 different face masks from S&G, but only 3 which are of the sheet mask variety. There is the Bright + Beautiful Sheet Mask(to boost radiance), Speed Plump Miracle Moisture Mask(to nourish and hydrate the skin) and lastly, the Fab Pore Refining Mask(to smooth the skin). They are only £3.50 each on Soap & Glorys website, but you can also grab them from Boots too, but for £4 each instead.
The Stila Liquid Eyeshadows are a favourite of mine, particularly their Shimmer and Glow Formula. Not only are they easy and quick to use, but there is a stunning array of colours within the range. I have the shade Pigalle which is a shimmery Cranberry shade which is perfect for A/W and Christmas too. They are slightly expensive at £24 a pop but for me, they're so worth it. They're so long lasting. Any eyeshadow enthusiast would really appreciate these. Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette (£25) The Amethyst Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette from Huda Beauty would be a wonderful addition to any beauty addicts makeup collection. This is a mini eyeshadow palette which contains 9 different shadows, all of which are pink and purple tones. It's so small that it fits in the palm of the hand which makes it travel friendly, and the great thing is that it's only £25 too. If your friend, other half or sibling are looking to try out the Huda Beauty eyeshadow formula then this would be the best place to start. If you want to know more about this palette you can read my full review and swatches here. And that's all for my Christmas Gift Guides this year. I really enjoyed putting them together, and I hope I gave you some great ideas for Christmas gifts. There were so many more products I could add but I didn't want to overwhelm you all. What are you hoping for this Christmas?
