There’s less than a week to go until the big guy drops down our chimneys. If you’re anything like us you probably don’t need another gift guide because your presents are already bought, beautifully wrapped and nestled under the tree…
WE’RE TOTALLY LYING. But we’re not panicking (maybe slightly) as this weekend we’ll be channelling our inner elf and turning in to gift buying and wrapping machines. We got this!
In addition to these fabulous Stocking Filler buys, if you’re stuck for ideas, catch up on our previous gift guides, there’s Luxury Beauty Gifts, Beauty Gifts Under £50, Beauty Gifts Under £30 and Gifts For Men. Basically everything you need to be a Christmas shopping star.
1. Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette – £8.00 (BUY HERE)
A complete contouring and highlighting palette at a VERY reasonable price! Makeup Revolution’s Ultra Contour Palette has 8 powders for perfect contouring and sculpting, including 2 merged baked illuminators.
2. Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Brushes – from £10.00 (BUY HERE)
Beautifully weighted brushes with soft bristles and luxurious styling. There’s not a girl in the land who wouldn’t be happy to find these in her stocking. Shown are the Angled Liner, Flat Contour and Oval Shadow brushes.
3. Gin & Tonic Lip Balm – £6.00 (BUY HERE)
We love gin. Ginny gin gin! This super sweet, gin and tonic flavoured moisturising lip balm is made from shea and cocoa butter and can be applied at any time of day (we don’t have to wait until noon for a lip tipple).
4. Flo Atomiser – £7.99 (BUY HERE)
This handy little atomiser can be filled with the recipient’s favourite scent. Great for girls on the go or those who don’t like lugging a massive bottle of perfume in their handbag (i.e. all of us).
5. Aromatherapy Associates Star – £10.00 (BUY HERE)
A gorgeous gift for anyone who loves relaxing in a luxurious bath. The festive star gift box contains a 9ml bottle of Aromatherapy Associates’ signature bath and shower oil, Revive Morning, which is enough for 3 blissful baths.
6. Browtician Crystal Rouge Tweezer – £5.29 (BUY HERE)
Browtician take brow grooming to another level, combing style and substance in their tweezers. All of the designs available look great (find out more here) but we think the Crystal Rouge edition is perfect for Christmas gift giving due to its added sparkle. Made from premium 420 Stainless steel with a pearl white finish and Swarovski element detail, these tweezers give a professional finish every time.
7. Ciate Boudoir Nail Polish – £9.00 (BUY HERE)
As far as we’re concerned, red nails are hot at any time of year, but at Christmastime they’re nothing short of essential. We’re big fans of the Ciate bottle design with its pretty black bow detail and would love to wake up to a bottle on Christmas morning!
8. Mandara Spa Shea & Coconut Hand Butter – £4.50 (BUY HERE)
Hand cream may seem a little dull, but it’s a winter staple – no-one wants dry scaly hands! Balance the practicality with this luxurious Hand Butter from the Mandara Spa range. It contains a moisturising blend of shea, cocoa, mango butters to pamper and nourish skin, which anyone would surely be grateful for.
9. Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Gloss in Signature Scarlet – £8.74 (BUY HERE)
POW. Christmas in lip gloss form. Maybelline’s Color Elixir formula offers the colour of a lipstick, conditioning of a balm and luminous shine of a gloss – we want one in every colour (please and thank you Mr Claus).
10. Emma Hardie Amazing Face Merrily Moringa – £10.00 (BUY HERE)
The Emma Hardie Merrily Moringa Gift Set makes the perfect stocking filler for skincare aficionados. It contains Moringa Balm, Emma Hardie’s famed cleanser, and a Mini Dual Action Cloth, specially designed to deliver super deep yet ultra-gentle pore cleansing and make up removal.
N.B. The packaging of this set via the ‘BUY HERE’ link is slightly different from the one shown, but it contains the same lovely products.
11. Urban Decay Perversion False Lashes in Trap – £12.00 (BUY HERE)
Gorgeous lashes that can be worn again and again (if taken care of). Trap offers thick, fluffy bundles of lashes, spaced across the band, providing just the right amount of flutter and impact. The precision-tip applicator and Urban Decay’s easy-to-see iridescent adhesive (don’t worry, it dries clear!) make for a stress-free application. LOVE.
12. NYX Smokey Look Kit – £10.00 (BUY HERE)
With all of this for £10.00, you can’t lose! The fabulous NYX Smokey Look Kit contains 9 eyeshadows and 2 lip colours, with applicators and a handy mirror – all within a perfectly portable, palm-sized compact.
So that’s it! The Little Beauty Guide Christmas gift guides conclude for 2016…
May your shopping be merry, your wrapping be bright and your Christmas filled with love and beautiful surprises. Xx
