Walking in a Winter Wonderland: Blogmas Day 2- Gift Guide for beauty lovers

Hey everyone,

Welcome to blogmas day 2. Todays post is going to be a gift guide for beauty lovers, I have decided to do a separate gift guide for beauty lovers as I have a lot of beauty products, mainly makeup that would make great gifts. I will have a few body and hair products that will feature in my gift guide for her which you need to check out.

These products are suitable for a range of budgets although it is predominately high end as that is the makeup I use. To make things easier for you all I am going to link to the products if possible, but as a disclaimer this post isn't sponsored by any of the brands featured.

An idea which I have done in previous years is buy a few beauty items and make my own beauty gift set for my friends and family.  So I am going to start of with the cheapest Items and work up towards the more expensive items.

£10 and Under.

NYX Soft Matt Lip Creme's £5.50 - These would make the perfect stocking filler or as a cheaper option for secret santa. I love these liquid lipsticks and I highly recommend them, if your looking to make your own beauty gift set these would be perfect for them. At £5.50 each you can't complain and the shade selection is great as well. 

NYX Butter Gloss £5.00 - These like the Matt Lip cremes would be the perfect stocking filler, the butter glosses are the most perfect non sticky gloss. At £5.00 each it is the cheapest item in my gift guide and would be perfect for someone of any age. The shade selection like all the NYX products are great!

Primark Blusher Brush - I can't remember the exact price for this product as I got it as a gift last year but I am 99% sure it was under £10. I haven't tried much from the Primark beauty range but I have tried a few brushes and they were actually okay. This would be the perfect present for anyone who is just getting into makeup and needing some brushes. 

Zoeva 230 Luxe Pencil Brush £9.00  - This for me is the perfect addition to any beauty lovers stocking. A pencil brush is an essential in anyones makeup collection. I would of loved to received this in my stocking last year. The quality of Zoeva brushes is second to none and at under £10 you can't complain at the price. 

£11 To £30

Zoeva 128 Cream Cheek Brush £13 - This brush is a bit more pricer than the pencil brush but it is just as good.  This would be a great present to anyone of any age as a smaller present to go alongside a bigger present or just as a secret santa gift. 

Burberry Nail Polish - Festive Gold and Military Red £15 - The perfect present for the nail lovers in your life. Burberry does some of the best nail varnishes in my opinion and these are the perfect duo for the festive season.  Now these two polishes were from the holiday collection last year,  but I do believe you can still buy them online and possibly in shops.

The Balm Mary-Loumanizer £17.50 - If she glows you go, if the lady in your life loves highlighter and looking glowing then this would be the perfect present for her.  A golden highlighter that suits all skin tones. It is mid range in price so would be perfect as a smaller present, stocking filler or secret santa.

Mac 217 brush £20 - Your never going to go wrong buying a Mac brush as a present for someone, and why not go for a best-seller the 217. It is the perfect brush for blending and applying colour. Pricing at £20 it is a mid range product and something every women/girl would love to receive.

Chanel Leveres Scintillantes Lip Gloss £22 - A Chanel lipgloss is the perfect gift for any lady in your life, pair it with a Chanel lipstick and you have hit the jackpot. A lip combination in heaven and also brings a little bit of luxury to her life. I recommend the shade 148 which is a pinky shimmer perfect over the Lipstick InTime.

Burberry Eye colour Silk- Pale Barley £23 - A staple product from Burberry beauty and one which would be the perfect gift for any women in your life. It is a bit pricer for an eyeshadow but 100% worth the money, the quality is second to none. Let's be honest everyone would love to receive this under their tree this year.

Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect Lipstick £23 - If you have a beauty lover to buy for you need to go get her this now, like right now. This is the perfect peachy nude lipstick, a cult classic product and one that would make anyones christmas.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine £25 - Nothing says I love you than buying her a Chanel lip stick . She will love being able to whip this out of her handbag, and what more screams classy and sophistication like Chanel. These are the more hydrating range of lipsticks from the brand and I personally recommend the shades Boy and Intime which are perfect pinky nudes.

YSL Effect Faux Cils Mascara £25 - If she wants long, voluminous and bold lashes then this is the gift for her. Obviously a bit more pricer but any non beauty addict/beauty addict would love to receive this.

Mac Nutcracker Sweet Gold Pigments and Glitter Pigments £26 - Oh Mac you have outdone yourself with this set. The perfect set of pigments and glitter to get you through the holiday season. At the time of writing this they were in stock in Selfridges but having had another look it's sold out. Their seems to be a few lurking around on Amazon so either their or a Mac store is your best bet to get your hands on these beauties. 

Over £30

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek To Chic blusher in Love Glow £30 - A blusher like non others, this blusher gives the perfect flush to your cheeks and suits a wide range of skin tones. If your looking to indulge in a makeup gift this year then this is the way to go.

Charlotte Tilbury Uptown Girl Eyeshadow Pallet £38 - The bit different to the typical eyeshadow pallets, this one has more of a purple tone which gives it that twist. This eyeshadow pallet would make the perfect present for any girl who loves to go out on the town.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Pallet £38.38 - So before I get into the product the price I have given relates to the price that it costs in £ when ordered from Sephora. Now If your looking for a cheeky present then this is it. 8 blushes and 2 highlighters will leave them blushing for days.

Too Faced Grand Hotel Cafe £42.62 - Again this relates to the price once converted from Sephora. This gift set contains 3 pallets and a Mini of the Famous better than sex mascara. Each pallet has 6 eyeshadows and either a blusher or bronzer.

Chanel CoCo Mademoiselle eau de parfum 50ml £68.00 - If your looking for a grown up, sophisticated perfume to buy someone then this is it. Chanel CoCo Mademoiselle is known as a classy, sophisticated perfume and is perfect for anyone who wants a classic scent.

Chanel Chance Eau Tendre eau de toilette 100ml £79.00 - Now if your looking for a younger but still classic perfume then the Chanel Chance range is the one. I like to think that this is the younger sitter to the No 5 and Coco scents. My favourite scent from the chance range is Tendre as it is super girly and fresh smelling.

So their you have it my gift guide for beauty lovers, or mostly makeup lovers. I hope you found this useful and if you did let me know in the comments below. I will see you all again tomorrow for day 3. 

Have a wonderful winter day, 
Until Tomorrow,
