If you haven’t seen my BIG Beauty Gift Guide 2017, you can check that post out HERE. But today I’m sharing more gift ideas, for the beauty lover in your life.
The gift of easy at-home gel nails is something any beauty lover will be so excited to unwrap. This brilliant little starter kit from Red Carpet Manicure is perfect for anyone who hasn’t used gel nail colour before, or someone who is a little more experienced in the manicure department. I have a set just like this one from Red Carpet Manicure & I use mine for my toes all the time. It’s great to be able to give myself a pedicure every couple of weeks and then not having to worry about it any other time.
I’ve said a few times over the years on Made From Beauty that TK Maxx and Homesense are brilliant places to look for unique gifts. Recently I have picked up this Blanco Leather Makeup Bag from TK Maxx. With so many beauty products, makeup bags, brushes and vanity cases in store at such low prices TK Maxx and Homesense are the perfect places to pick up something extra special for a makeup maven without breaking the bank.
I am always on the hunt for electrical beauty gadgets to include in my gift guides. So when I saw the Smooth Skin Gold IPL Device I knew I just had to include it. I have wanted laser hair removal for such a long time, and I know lots of women do, but I can’t be doing with all the fuss of a salon treatment. This at home IPL system from Smooth Skin is great for busy people who can just about fit in an at home treatment!
If you’d like to gift just one skincare item this Christmas then may I suggest the Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream. No matter your age or skin type, anyone’s complexion would benefit from a good dollop of this moisturiser.
But if you’re buying for someone who is crazy about makeup, rather than skincare, then buying them the Huda Beauty Complexion Perfection Pre Makeup Base is an easy way to guarantee you’ll nail Christmas! Huda Beauty’s makeup releases are often sellout successes, and no products have been as hotly anticipated, from the brand, than their foundation & primer range. It would be quite hard trying to match a foundation colour for someone so I would suggest sticking with this hydrating, smoothing primer instead.
Leighton Denny just keep nailing it with their collections recently. I wrote a whole post on their Heritage Collection recently, and their Soirée Collection for Christmas 2017 is just as beautiful! This little kit is perfect for trying out some festive nail art and for making sure your nails are perfectly painted for the holidays.
Giving makeup brushes is a great idea of the person you’re buying for loves their makeup. The only problem is is that a lot of brush collections that come out around this time aren’t brilliant quality. Which is why I have picked out a set from Spectrum Brushes which is available all year round. I love Spectrum Brushes and use some of their brushes in my daily routine. I’m confident recommending the brand, and think they make a lovely gift!
Sometimes buying a full sized nail polish is a better way to go than going down the gift set route. The quality of Morgan Taylor polishes is second to none, they are beautiful to wear, easy to use and last longer than most polishes on my nails. The brands Christmas Collection 2017 really is a thing of beauty! In the festive line up you’ll find a silver chrome polish called Dreaming of Gleaming, a striking green glitter You Crack Me Up, a stunning metallic purple/plum
called Plum-thing Magical, an enchanting silver chunky glitter called Silver in my Stocking, rich royal blue Baby it’s Bold Outside, a warm metallic gold shade Just TuTu Much and shimmery burgundy/red Don’t Toy with My Heart
As I’ve said in my BIG Beauty Gift Guide 2016 & 2017, monthly beauty boxes are an amazing gift to give a beauty lover. Bringing a twist on the tradional beauty box, Roccabox offers a selection which is handpicked by an industry professional each month! In my most recent box I got to try the Ardell Really Ree lashes, the Murad aha/bah exfoliating cleanser, Pureology strength cure range and the Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask.
Look Fantastic are known in the beauty world for their amazing collaborations. This month has seen the release of the Look Fantastic X Lulu Guinness Make up Bag; the perfect luxury gift for a makeup lover and fashionista. Inside the beautiful leather makeup bag you’ll find: the Aveda Thickening Tonic, the Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment, a sample of the MAC Black Lash Mascara, the Darphin Essential Oil Elixir, a full size Origins High Potency Night-a-Mins Mineral Enriched Renewal Cream, a mini Clinique High Impact Mascara
and the MAC Semi-Sweet Times Nine Palette.
