Beauty Christmas Gift Guide for Her 2019

It is finally December and Christmas festivities are in full swing. For the last few days I've been spending what little time I have wrapping up presents with Christmas music blaring out loud in the background to get me in the Christmas spirit. I just love the lead up to Christmas Day don't you? Unfortunately I haven't finished all of my Christmas shopping yet though. It can be quite overwhelming. We've bought little bits and pieces here and there over the last few months to make it more manageable.

Now every year(well almost!) I put together a few Christmas Gift Guides to give you a helping hand if you're struggling for ideas. I for one know how difficult it can be to find the perfect gift for someone, whether it's your mum, dad, sister or other half. Today I've put together a Christmas Gift Guide for those beauty addicts in your life. Maybe it'll give you inspiration too, and perhaps you'll add a gift or two to your Christmas list.

This LE travel-friendly set features two most coveted products in miniature sizes- the Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter in Sand Castle(2.2g) and the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Sweet Mouth(5.5ml). They are the perfect duo for radiant looking skin and plumped lips. The highlighter is a little too dark for my fair skin right now but it makes an amazing eyeshadow(don't you just love a product thats multipurpose?)

Unfortunately I didn't quite realise how limited this Fenty Beauty set was. This was available in Boots a while back but it seems to have gone out of stock really quick. Hardly surprising though because this is a really beautiful set at a reasonable price. Luckily it is still available to buy directly from Fenty Beauty though.

This bottle of goodness is a 6 in 1 multi purpose cream that not only acts as a moisturiser for dry skin, but it can also be used as a makeup remover, primer, repairing mask, aftershave cream and you can even use it on a baby too. It has been a cult favourite since the 1950s and for good reason. It really makes a difference to my skin. My makeup applies better over it, my skin feels softer and smoother and dryness is eliminated. Some may say £20 is a little pricey but due to it being a multi purpose product I think it's quite a good price and I would be ecstatic to receive this as a gift for Christmas.

Almost every year I have a fragrance on my Christmas list and I believe this is one that should go on every girls list this year. Seksy Elegance is exactly that- an elegant, soft and feminine scent with an opening of Bergamot, Mandarin, Champaca Leaves with heart notes of Jasmine, Rose, Sweet Pea, Violet and Sugared Orchid and a Amaranth Wood, Blackberry Musk and Plum base. It's very floral which I absolutely love. I've been spritzing this every morning for months on end and I can't get enough of it. Not to mention the bottle is very aesthetically pleasing. It comes with a swarovski crystal around the neck which you can use as jewellery. Not bad for £19.99 is it?

Is your loved one highlighter obsessed like me? Then I think the Ofra x Nikkie Tutorials Glazed Donut Highlighter is a good choice for a Christmas gift. The formula is absolutely impeccable. It has a silky soft texture with an icy white finish on the skin. It looks absolutely beautiful on fair-light skin tones. It is one hell of a blinding highlighter, literally! And it lasts for a long time too. Not bad going for £24. Read more about it here (includes swatches).

This travel friendly eyeshadow palette by Jeffree Star Cosmetics is a 9 pan palette including eyeshadows and pressed pigments. It is incredibly pigmented with bursts of colour, including pinks, purples and a gold, along with more wearable shades too. The eyeshadows are very easy to blend and the quality is as I would expect from JS, incredible. It is so worth the money.

When I think of luxury beauty the one brand I think of is Charlotte Tilbury. Earlier this year CT created a collection of lipsticks named the Hot Lips 2 Lipsticks which are in homage to 11 special people- from Kylie Minogue to Susan Sarandon and Olivia Palermo. The formula of the Hot Lips 2 Lipsticks are incredible. They're creamy on the lips, pigmented and the squared off tip of the bullet allows precise application. 

Out of the 11 shades in the collection my favourite is JK Magic which is in homage to the magical JK Rowling. It is a peach toned nude which is my favourite kind of shade. Now, although that is my favourite shade there is another 10 to choose from and there's a shade for everyone. There's a bright red, wine red, pinky nude etc. 

What will you be gifting your loved ones this year? and what's your favourite gift within the Gift Guide?
