Christmas Beauty Gift Guide
We are officially excited as it’s time to compile our Christmas gift lists. The beauty gift list is always a favourite one for me as I am somewhat a bit of a beauty junkie and I love buying beauty gifts for those that I know will love them and most importantly get great use from them. Some beauty gift sets have things added in for the sake of it and perhaps not particularly worth it, like eyeshadow palettes with colours you would never use. So be careful that you don’t pick things up just because they look pretty but may not be as functional as others.
Don’t fret though as we have been shopping and picked out the best beauty gifts for this year.
BOBBI BROWN Nude Drama Eye Palette, £49.50
This is the perfect palette as it is full of nudes and who doesn’t get on well with nudes. It’s foolproof. From subtle shimmers to high impact metallics, this palette includes a range of rich, earthy nudes to shade, define and highlight eyes for day, night or after hours. The silky powder shadow formulas are blendable, buildable and glide on lids with next to no fall out.
