Christmas Gift ideas for Makeup Lovers

As I am having serious technical difficulties editing the videos I filmed for over Christmas, I thought I would give you some of my gift suggestions for the makeup lover in your life.

Real Techniques - Your Picks Berlin Brush Set.

First of all you cant go wrong with a good makeup brush set. The two brands I always recommend are Real Techniques and Morphe.

Real Techniques have gone from strength from strength during 2016 and have some beautiful gift sets for Christmas at really affordable prices. The Your picks Berlin set contains essential face and eye brushes and is great for makeup lovers of all abilities.  

You can buy this set from Superdrug here for £20 or as seen in bottom picture I did see the set on sale for £12 in Asda Carlisle but they are not showing on so worth a look in store if you have an Asda nearby.

Becca Cosmetics Opal Glow on the Go Collection.

2016 has been the year of highlighting, there are so many companies bringing out amazing products but in my opinion nothing compares to Becca highlighters. My all time favourite as you all probably know by now is Champagne pop but, I have recently fallen in love with Opal thanks to Jamie Genevieve who raves about how amazing it is. Once you have tried it you will see why, the tiniest amount of product on the top of your cheekbones leaves the most beautiful glow. Becca products are quite expensive to buy full size, so I think these little sets that include the powder and liquid version of the highlight are a great way to try the product without spending a fortune. They are also the ideal size for travel.

Unfortunately this product is out of stock since this post was written. You can join the waiting list to be notified when it is restocked here. When in stock this set retails for £20.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eyeshadow Palette.

I wont go into detail about this palette as you can read my full review here but basically just trust me when I say you need it. It is such a versatile, easy to use palette for everyone from beginners to professional makeup artists.

This week we heard the amazing news Anastasia Beverly Hills now has a UK website and warehouse which means we can buy her products without crazy shipping and import fees.

You can buy this palette on the website here for £41.

L'Oréal Pure Clay masks.
These Loreal face masks I have also done a blog post about here. They would make a great gift for anyone as they are so easy to use and make such a huge difference to your skin.

These masks are on special offer for £6 each at Boots.

Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment.
This Glamglow facemask I have talked about a lot recently because I am so amazed at the results. As I have said in my review about it (read it here) I genuinely think it makes you look 10 years younger. It is a very expensive product but in my opinion totally worth it. I think anyone who is into skincare and facemasks would love this as a gift.

You can buy the Glamglow Gravitymud firming treatment here for £60.

Let me know in the comments below what you are hoping to unwrap on Christmas morning. I hope you all have a great Christmas!
