Who’s ready for some more Christmas?
We’re talking luxury beauty – my jam.
If you want to give the beauty-lover in your life something they’re guaranteed to love then I recommend Charlotte Tilbury. I was given the filmstar bronze and glow last year and it was the best present! It’s pretty universal, or go for a lipstick you think they’ll like – I have a few stashed away for some of my friends. Just because it’s gorgeous, I’d recommend the makeup bag – maroon and rose gold with the best zipper I have ever seen… So beautiful. If you wanted to go all out, you could get the bag and fill it with some Tilbury products. I can’t even imagine… I want that.
The boys are back in town… There are 50 shades of the Tom Ford lips and boys
available, so there’s definitely one for everyone. The one shown here is Xavier, which is the perfect Christmassy colour, but there are also nudes, reds, shimmers… one for basically every lipstick need, ever.
If one lipstick wasn’t enough (it never really is), there are so many other options. The NARS Killer heels
set comes with 5 baby lipsticks (SO cute) in their popular shades, and the Stila eternally yours liquid lipstick set
comes with six minis. Hard to chose, but one you could divide up and share across all your friends (if you’re more selfless than I). The NARS set has a mix of creamy lipsticks in all kinds of shades, and the Stila one has all your liquid lipstick needs sorted. You might not have known that you need so many liquid lipsticks, but you do.
You can’t really get more luxurious than Diptyque
, and that has been scientifically proven. Definitely has been proven. They do a selection of Christmas candles every year, and they are always divine – this year’s top pick is the Liquidambar
one smells soft, warm and spicy.
If you’re more into the eyes being the windows of the soul, you can’t really get more luxury than the By Terry ombre blackstars
, which are basically creamy pencils that make doing your eye makeup a dream. I gave Misty rock as a present last year, and it was well received. For the longest lashes ever, the Benefit mascara duo, from QVC
, can also be divided up and shared or it can be given to one very lucky recipient… layering these two mascaras is my new obsession, for lashes that last forever.
