This is my first ever Christmas post on my blog and I am SUPER excited to write it up. My blog will be strictly Christmas themed throughout December – who could have it any other way?!
My first Christmassy post is a useful one, for those of you who want to get someone the perfect gift, but the Christmas money budget is slowly going down, we’ve all been there.
Whether you’re doing secret santa with a bunch of colleagues or friends, or if you want to treat your bestie to something fab, these gift ideas are sure to point you in the right direction!
Bare Minerals – ‘Glow Together’ – £29.00
‘Glow Together’ is a brand new product by Bare Minerals, which includes two highlighers and a gorgeous rose coloured blush.
Lately, highlighter is sooo in, what makeup lover doesn’t love a good highlight, or two? This palette includes a brighter golden coloured highlight, and also a more bronzed shade.
The palette overall looks so expensive, with the gold textured exterior and marble effect shimmer shades inside, it is a win-win situation for both you giving the best present, and her receiving the most amazing gift.
Z-Palette and individual eye shadow pans –
If you want to give the ultimate perfect gift to someone, with more of a personal touch, a Z-Palette and some individual eye shadows would be a brilliant choice.
Z-Palettes are simply empty magnetic based palettes, where you can buy eye shadow pans to fill it with, allowing you to customise an eye shadow palette with the perfect shades.
When buying individual eye shadows to fill a Z-Palette with, Makeup Geek do a huge range of shadow pans for only £6.00, meaning you can get someone their all time favourite eye shadows in their own palette for them to build up as they wish.
Lipstick Trios –
I received some gorgeous Ted Baker lipstick pens as a gift last Christmas, perfect for any lipstick lover, or makeup lover in general.
The thing I love about lipstick sets is that you are guaranteed to give the right shade. Buying one lipstick for someone can be quite a challenge as you never know exactly what shade they are going to like, whereas buying a set of lipsticks shows that you have put more thought into giving the perfect gift.
There are plenty of lipsticks sets out there with a range of prices, so you will be sure to find the perfect one for the perfect person!
If 2016 has brought anything good to the world, it has to be the brow hype. Who knew they would become the most important asset on anyone’s face.
If brows mean the world to someone you are buying for, the NYX brow range has to be the best on the market for affordable but professional products. The sculpt and highlight brow definer is a double sided product, with both a brow pencil to fill in the brows, and also a concealer stick to make brows stand out on the face.
This would make the perfect gift for that friend who takes huge pride in their eye brows.
Makeup Revolution appeared on the market not long ago, and have since become the go-to for cheap eye shadow palettes especially.
Any one of these palettes would make an amazing christmas gift on a budget, bringing a range of gorgeous shades together, for such a cheap price.
The ‘Beyond Flawless’ palette has 32 shades inside, for a fabulous £8, so you cannot go wrong with giving this as a gift.
Hope this post has helped those of you who were stuck with gift ideas! Thanks for reading.
