Last Minute Christmas Buys for Makeup Lovers
I can’t believe Christmas is only 8 days away! Well, if like me you’re only just starting to shop then here’s some quick fixes you may want to buy. Whether you’re a Makeup Artist wondering what to ask for or you’re shopping for a Makeup Enthusiast, have a look at some of my favourite products that could be the perfect answer.
Cassie Lomas The Ultimate Contour and Highlight Set
My brushes were designed by myself to make makeup application easy and to create flawless faces! The best bit about them is that if you’re a professional they’re a perfect addition to your kit and if you’re not then they give you a professional finish at home. Good makeup is all about the application and these ensure a flawless finish every time. This set has all the perfect brushes to create definition and enhance all your best bits.
Bobbi Brown Pro Face Palette
These palettes are great for MUAs as they have an entire spectrum of colours which cater for all skin tones. In addition to the full range of Correctors and Creamy Concealers, it features Bobbi Brown's original Skin Foundation Stick in their signature yellow-toned shades! I love this for when I am on set and doing touch ups because its speedy.
Glossier The Makeup Set
Well, you can’t go wrong with Glossier. This perfect essential set is such a great gift. Boy Brow is so good, it would be any makeup lovers favourite, the Cloud Paint creates seamless cheek colour and the mascara is amazing for lengthening lashes! If you’re stuck for what to buy someone this could be the ticket.
B. Perfect Base Prime Finish Makeup Set
B. have put together this really handy set for Priming and Finishing your makeup routine. I am such a huge fan of these B. products, especially the setting spray which works like a dream! The entire set is only £15 which is really great value if you’re looking for some last minute stocking fillers! It is suitable for any age, gender or skin tone.
Daniel Sandler Watercolour Liquid Blush
I absolutely love these Watercolour Liquid blushes! They have a water-like consistency but they literally stay in place all day. They give the ultimate pretty glow and leave a stunning natural blush without caking the skin.
La Mer The Lip Balm
This has got to be one of those ‘can’t live without’ products and I cannot recommend it enough. It’s not too heavy and it has a cooling sensation when you apply it. The best part is that it has a really nice taste, not that I recommend you eat it! I always have this in my own personal makeup bag and my kit for my clients as it is such a gorgeous lip balm and everyone always comments on how nice it is.
Marc Jacobs On the Dot 3-Piece Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon Collection
These Marc Jacobs Liquid Lip crayons are such a nice gift, they look great and the colours are so versatile. They are opaque but with a metallic, satin finish. I love these for when you’re on the go, they’re super easy to apply!
YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Gift Set
The perfect Christmas party glam set! Theres just something about getting a bit of YSL for Christmas that makes me all fuzzy. When you don’t know much about selecting products, always go for a mascara set.
St Tropez Self Tan ExpressAdvanced Bronzing Mousse
This St. Tropez tan has got to be one of the most easy to use tans I have ever tried and has become a personal favourite! If you got this for Christmas you would be living it. I use the St. Tropez tanning mitt with this mousse and it creates the most perfect, streak-free, natural bronzed tan and the best part is there is none of that notorious fake tan after smell! Such a great product to keep yourself glowing during the winter months!
MAC Shiny Pretty Things Lip Kit
The perfect stocking filler! This MAC lipstick set has 10 of their most popular shades all in little sizes, perfect for your clutch bag and to make extra room in your kit! The shades in this kit are Velvet Teddy, Snob, Twig, Relentlessly Red, Ruby Woo, Snow Orchid, Rebel, Chilli and Diva!
