Can you believe Christmas is less than a month away? To say 2020 was a weird year would be the understatement of the century! But even though this year will also be cancelled, I’m still looking forward to Christmas and I hope you are too. To get you in the mood and hopefully help you find something nice for your loved ones, I’ve put together a little beauty gift guide. In this guide, you’ll find makeup, skin care and body care for every budget. Read and hopefully you will be inspired.🎄
Update Cool Christmas Gifts 2020 Review
Of all the beauty things to buy someone for Christmas, makeup is one of the easier choices in my opinion. I mean, who doesn’t love a little makeup? (Okay, I’m sure there are some out there!) And gift options come in all shapes and sizes, too, whether you’re looking for stocking stuffers or want to go all out. With so much to choose from it can get a little overwhelming so I’ve picked four options to give you an idea and where to start.
The 299 Best Gifts For Kids For 2022
First up is a brand that is fun and always offers great gift sets for Christmas. Discover the Enchanted Wonderland makeup collection * from Too Faced. An amazing set of three palettes, each containing six beautifully pigmented shadows and two blusher shades, plus a travel size of their famous Better Than Six mascara. It has everything you need if you’re relatively new to makeup and want to experiment, or if you’re an eyeshadow junkie looking to add to your collection. The colors in the palettes range from cool smoky tones, to nectar and hot pinks, so there really is a color for everyone. The shadows cover matte, shimmer and shimmer, allowing you to take your look from day to night in a heartbeat.
Can you give away the whole set, or why not buy the set and use the palettes as individual fillers?
Next up is one of my favorite luxury makeup brands: Trinny London. Trinny London is a premium British beauty brand offering creamy and versatile products that stick, click and wear. The great thing about Trinny is that you can buy their products individually or as part of a set, allowing you to mix and match the colors however you like.
This year, as part of their gift collection, Trinny London introduced the limited edition Lip & Cheek T-Tone pots with Lip2Cheek and Lip Glow in combination shades. The set pictured above is the On The Go Set * with the Lip & Cheek T-Tone pot in Phoebe + Cordy (there are 4 color duos to choose from), in the beautiful limited edition bag ‘The Elizabeth’. Perfect for travel and because they are all cream based products, they are very easy to apply and blend with your fingers. It’s a truly luxurious gift that’s suitable for all ages and looks great under any Christmas tree.

A brand I wanted to throw into the mix is Nabla, an independent Italian brand that offers effective, high-quality products that are affordable. Their cutie collection is exactly that: cute. Part of the collection are five eye palettes, four styles (eye pencils) and three lipsticks of which I received the Wild Berry set. As far as I know, you can’t buy them as the set pictured above, but they are worth checking out individually because they are so affordable and of such high quality. Perfect for your makeup loving cousin or any other makeup junkie for that matter.
Finally the Nars Mini Afterglow Lip Balm Duo. Cute sock pack with two shades of colorful lip balm – Fast Lane and Orgasm. I love these balms and they are perfect for the winter months. They give you that “natural but better lips” look. What’s also great is that these minis come in their original metal boxes just like the full size ones, giving them that luxurious feel.
I’m all about skincare and I’m so proud to share three of my favorite brands with you. Let’s start with Algenist, a brand that uses Alguronic Acid from algae as the main ingredient in its products. They are cruelty-free and vegan and focus on ingredients that work. I’ve been a fan of Algenist since I first tried their Genius Sleeping Collagen a year and a half ago and have loved every single product I’ve tried since. Algenist definitely falls under luxury skincare so the products come with a price tag but they are worth every penny in my opinion.
For this gift guide, I chose to share the Algae Secrets Kit* which is the perfect way to try Algenist without breaking the bank. The kit includes a full size bottle of GENIUS Liquid Collagen (30ml) which costs £90 on its own. Other products are GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream (15ml), Complete Eye Renewal Balm (7ml) and GENIUS Sleeping Collagen (15ml). The total value of the set is £155.65.
The Best Christmas Gifts For The Xbox Lover In Your Life
ARK Skincare is an award-winning British brand with a unique approach to skin care. Instead of focusing on skin type and developing their products around this, ARK Skincare offers a range based on age, daily essentials such as SPF and treatments to address specific concerns. Their products are vegan, cruelty-free and made from natural ingredients.
Every year, ARK offers a great selection of gifts, from stocking stuffers to full sets. I’ve chosen two little packs of socks that I think are a great way to introduce someone to the brand. Age Defend Mini Duo * is intended for those aged 30 and 40 and contains Age Defend Conditioning Cleanser (30ml) and Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer (30ml). Skin Essential Mini Duo * contains Hydrating Beauty Mist (50ml) and Pre Cleanse & MakeUp Remover (50ml). Both are presented in a beautiful gift box.
**ARK Skincare is currently offering 30% off as part of Black Friday on select products while supplies last**
Last but certainly not least is Murad, another brand I’ve been in love with ever since I tried their products. Founded in 1989, Murad was the first clinical skincare brand to offer high-quality skincare. Their motto: “Stress less. Be imperfect. Live longer.” —Dr. Howard Murad, founder. I think we could all use a little less stress right now!
The 27 Best Gifts For 3 Year Olds In 2022
Like Algenist, Murad is a luxury brand so I appreciate that not everyone can be in a position to try their products full size. However, Christmas is the perfect time to check out their gift sets, as they offer great stocking stuffers. One of them is the You Dew You set * which contains Nutrient Charged Water Gel (15ml) and AHA/BHA exfoliating Cleanser (30ml). Valued at £21, the kit is the perfect place to start for skincare newbies or a handy travel size for those who already have a solid skincare routine.
I wanted to include body care because everyone deserves a good treat and there are so many wonderful products out there. Take for example this perfume from Potion Paris *. The packaging gives me all the louboutin vibes and screams luxury. It’s beautifully made and comes in a beautiful storage box that looks amazing on any vanity. The perfume itself comes in small glass bottles (see photo above), which can be inserted into the large bottle. You get two small vials in each pack. I love this idea because it means you can easily change and change, adapting your perfume to suit your mood or the time of year.
If you’re not quite sure which fragrance to choose, Potion Paris also offers a discovery kit * containing samples of 7 of their signature scents. A great way to test the waters, see what you (or the person you’re buying for) likes before you splurge and buy the full size perfume. And the great thing is that if you buy the discovery set, you get a £20 voucher included to go towards buying a full size perfume. (Certificate must be redeemed within two months)
I’m ending my gift guide with a very useful gift from Friction Free Shaving (FFS). FFS is a brand that offers a razor subscription service that allows you to receive new, sharp razors through your letterbox at a fraction of the price you’d pay for blades in a store. They are environmentally friendly with a razor blade recycling service and the handles are made from high quality metal rather than the plastic you see in stores.

If subscription services aren’t your thing, FFS now offers a selection of gift sets like the Small Shaving Set Rose *. This set includes a rose gold razor handle, 4 razor heads with 6 blades each, shaving cream,
