Christmas Gift Guide for Makeup Lovers

Every year I always ask Father Christmas for something beauty related! It’s a time when you can ask for a little treat you’ve had your eye on for a while. If you have a beauty and makeup lover in your family or friends, I’m sure they’d be over the moon to find any of these items under the Christmas tree!

What to buy someone who loves makeup for Christmas

Without meaning to this gift guide became very Charlotte Tilbury orientated! I swear I’m not sponsored by CT (wouldn’t that be the dream, I purchased all of these products myself). These are my favourite Charlotte Tilbury products which would make amazing gifts.

If the person you are gifting to has never tried Charlotte Tilbury products but would love to, I would thoroughly recommend their Instant Look in a Palettes. I have the Natural Beauty option, but they also have Beauty Glow and Seductive Beauty Palettes with different colour options. They have a lovely selection of eyeshadows, blushes and a contour and highlight. The perfect way to try out CT formulas. They are also amazing for travelling!

This contour and highlight duo comes beautifully packaged in a gold Art Deco style compact. It’s stunning to look at but also has amazing powders inside. They are both easy to apply and blend so ideal for someone who has just started getting into makeup.

Any beauty lover would be proud to pull out the little gold lipstick tube out of their bag. Charlotte’s lipsticks come in a beautiful variety of shades, so there is something for everyone. I currently have the shades Glastonberry, a dark vampy red, Very Victoria, the perfect brown nude and Amazing Grace, a lovely pretty pink.

If you know someone who is just getting into makeup, I highly recommend the CT Cream Eyeshadows. They are so easy to apply, no brushes needed and you can just smooth out the edges with your fingertips. Perfect for someone who wants to start wearing eyeshadow but doesn’t have 100 shades and brushes to work with. See my review of the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eyeshadows here.

On the other end of the scale, if you know someone who loves to experiment with colourful eyeshadows and create different looks, they would love the new Urban Decay palette. The eyeshadows are split into two sections, the more colourful shimmers on one side and more wearable shimmers on the other side. See my full of the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Eyeshadow Palette

I’ve seen this little set featured in lots of blogger gift guides and I can see why! These glittery eyeshadows are the best I have ever used! They have a doe-foot applicator like a lip gloss, so you just smudge the formula over the lid and then blend the edges. It provides sparkling glitter that would be perfect for parties or New Year’s Eve.

If your friends are obsessed with liquid lipsticks they need to try the Burberry Lip Velvets. Not only are they in stunning packaging but they also feel comfortable and not dying on the lips. You can see my full review of the Burberry Liquid Lip Velvets here with swatches too.

Usually, people opt for drugstore mascaras, but as a treat, I recommend the Armani Eccentrico Mascara. I can’t be without this and no other mascara compares. Armani is such a beautiful brand, anyone would be pleased to receive this.

Even though Marc Jacobs makeup is now available in the UK, I don’t think many people have tried their products. I picked up their blusher and the quality is fantastic. The sleek black packaging would look amazing on your friend’s dressing table. It’s such a pretty gift.

I’d love to know what beauty items you are gifting this year and what is on your beauty Christmas list!
