Welcome to my Gift Guide for Makeup Lovers! Like with my skincare gift guide, this one is also my Christmas makeup wishlist!
Hopefully this might inspire you with gift ideas for someone who is difficult to buy for but loves all things make up and beauty. Better yet – a treat for yourself (we all know you deserve it!). Let me know on in the comments and on twitter/instagram whats on your make up wish list this year!
I’d love to know 🙂
Let’s get started!
Who doesn’t want this amazing set! It’s worth £158, but it’s available for a fraction of the price. With three mini products included it would be perfect to carry around during the holiday party season. The palette also comes in an adorable case and even more stunning insides!
This foundation is a bestseller from Tarte and appeals to me because it’s hydrating even though it’s a foundation. I’ve been going off foundation in the last couple of years, especially for everyday wear, so a hydrating foundation would be perfect for me.
I feel like I’ve wanted this cult beauty product for the longest time, but because I’ve got my select favorite setting powder, I’ve never got round to trying it out. Translucent setting powder is an everyday must for me, and I’d love to see why everyone loves this one so much!
When I think highlight, I immediately think of Hourglass. This gorgeous palette comes with three shades! I’ve only heard amazing reviews of their highlighter and even though I rarely do my face up fully enough to use highlight, I feel like it would really change the game for me.
Gotta love a good palette and contour. So why would you not want this palette from Anastasia BH?! The shades in the palette all look like ones which I would use, which is rare in a palette for me. I always feel like there’s at least a couple of colours which I never seem to use, and it always makes me think I’ve not got my money’s worth!
How gorgeous is this?! Not only is it two amazing palettes, it comes with a vault! It comes with Modern Renaissance palette and Soft Glam Palette, which are two of the best selling eyeshadow palettes!
Who doesn’t love a brand new set of super soft and fluffy brushes?! I LOVE makeup brushes, and I love rose gold, so this set from Zoeva is a dream! The full set gives you all the brushes you need. I think the stippling brush and fan highlight brush would be the ones I’d be most excited to try out. I’m currently loving the fan brush from unicorn cosmetics and the stippling brush from real techniques. I’ve heard so many amazing things about Zoeva that I would love to have this starter kit and try them out for myself 🙂

Confession: I have never used a setting spray before…ever. Is that crazy?! I know some people swear by them and that a lot of them are must-haves for a night out or event, but personally I’ve just never got round to testing it out. This one from urban decay is one of the best sellers on sites like feel unique, and if I’m going to try one out I feel like this is the way forward!
I LOVE Charlotte Tilbury. Ever since I discovered the Pillow Talk collection, I’ve been obsessed! This is an incredible Bronze and Glow swarovski set. It’s the ultimate highlight and sculpting set for gorgeous, glowing skin.
I’ve been on the lookout for the best contour and highlight kit, and this one even smells like chocolate! How amazing is that?! It has six rich matte contour and highlight colours from the best formulas!

How amazing are the colours in this eye kit?! All of the colours are stunning, and I can definitely see myself using all of these! Twelve neutrals in matte, shimmer and satin finishes – it’s the ultimate eyeshadow palette!
Due to my lack of long, voluptuous lashes, mascara can be such a pain for me to find. A lot of formulas tend to be way to heavy for my little lashes and make them droop and clump no matter how much I curl them or how thinly I apply it. I’ve been loving the Dior iconic mascara this year, but this one by benefit has been on my watch list for a while now. This is mostly due to the shape and size of the brush, which looks ideal for someone like me. I need a short, sparse silicone/plastic applicator as opposed to a brush like, bristle type wand, and this shape seems like something that might work for me!
I have to admit, I’m not the best at doing my brows, and this pencil from benefit promises to make it fast and easy! Using brow pencils is still my most go to method of doing my brows especially in my everyday work routine, so having a pencil which can quicken and improve my look is everything that I’m looking for in a brow product.
